After weeks of traveling to a specialty store 40 miles away to buy their "Spicy Peanut Dressing" I finally figured out that if I could buy it, I could build it! So, with some tweaking (I felt like a chemist at times!) here is what I believe is a winner! Adjust the heat by adjusting the sriracha.
Although elsewhere this recipe has been called a 'Cheddar Sauce' .... although delish, cheddar it is not! I've made it thick and served as a sandwich filling topped with sprouts on a Ezekiel type bread; I've made it thinner and used it as a salad dressing and a veggie dip. I usually make this once a week so that healthy snacks will be available when the 'hungries' strike!
Since I've started eating more raw foods, I really enjoy the fact that I can have dessert for breakfast and it's a healthy thing! Although there is no cooking time for this, there is a 4 hour "set up in the refrigerator" time, so that the chia seeds plump up and get like tapioca.
Spring-boarding from another recipe here on Food.com, I altered it to accommodate our tastes, dietary habits and refrigerator contents. =) DH thoroughly enjoyed it, so that makes this a winner! Amounts are approximate and this dish allows great flexibility so you can have more of what you like.
Just joined a group on FB called "Uncooking101.com" and got this recipe today in my News-feed. We had it for lunch and were delighted! As it turned out, I didn't have red bell pepper, so I used the carrot-beet pulp left over from juicing, nor did I have chipotle so I subbed a sprinkle of smoked paprika. It was fabulous!
The upside of juicing is that you get maximum nutrition with minimum food prep. The downside is that you have all this pulp that is too good to just throw away. What's a Mom to do?? Black Bean Burgers to the rescue, ta da!
Having recently decided to eat more raw foods, I was pressed to contribute a dish to a dinner party held by a friend, so that DH and I would have something raw to eat. And so this dish was born out of what veggies we had on hand and what appealed to us. My friend's dinner guests swarmed all over the veggie dish I brought and asked for the recipe. So who had a recipe? A little brain storming brought the ingredients back into focus. I hope you enjoy this!
The upside of juicing carrots is all that wonderfully healthy juice; the down side is all the pulp that usually goes to waste. It was chilly here today and I wanted a nice warm soup. This is the result of that experiment. My picky husband really liked it. I hope you will too!
The only problem with Pink Perfection Juice #29571 by Mirj is that it disappeared way too quickly. It is awesome; we love it! However, throw a pineapple into the mix and what happens next is magic on the tastebuds.
It was a classic case of too much month left at the end of my money and I was in a pinch for what to serve for dinner. These are all things we had on hand and the assembly was super quick (I like that!) and the family loved it (I like that even better!) If you've not sprouted lentils before, it couldn't be easier, but it does take a 2-3 day lead time. See Sharon123's recipe #204489 for instructions and tips. Thanks again Sharon for the inspiration to sprout!
For the health of it, DH and I are trying to incorporate more vegan and raw foods into our diet. My good friend and her husband are on a similar path. Lately, she's been telling me tales of smothering everything with this vegan cheese sauce -- crackers, veggies, chips, pasta -- you name it. So, it is here for safekeeping. Can't wait to get started!
A great change of pace from tomato salsa! I've had this Tropical Fruit Salsa rolled in a romaine leaf for a quick lunch; served over black bean burgers to guests who were not vegetarian and they sang its praises. Super with chips as well. I hope you enjoy!
