California Goodwich – This BBQ wrap modern food concept comes from the book that has changed my life. It contains sauteed mushrooms and onions smothered in my homemade BBQ sauce, layered with cooked broccoli that has been dressed with my creamy dressing. With a few avocado and mustard added, this wrap is surprisingly delightful!
Zucchini Soup – Zucchini is my least favorite vegetable. I think it’s tasteless! But I do try to eat it because according to Dr. Joel Fuhrman, it’s one of the super foods that we need to eat often. So I decided to turn this otherwise bland food into a creamy, delicious low-fat soup that I could eat three bowls of….which I just did!!
Spinach and Potato Salad – For those of you that know me, you know I love my greens! So I was excited to run onto this potato salad recipe with spinach in it! What a great idea! It’s a little different than my more traditional potato salad recipe that I have demonstrated in some previous classes. This one has red pepper, red onion, and spinach topped with my Sweet Mustard Dressing that also goes perfectly with a basic green salad. You’re going to love it!!
Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream – With heat rising and cherry season right around the corner, I thought it was a good time for Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream! I use frozen organic cherries, since cherries are one of the dirty dozen fruits, and blend them with freshly made almond milk and add a touch of cocoa powder.
This is quick and easy to whip up with a heavy-duty blender such as a Vita-Mix, but could also be made with a regular blender and fresh non-frozen cherries. Just freeze it in an ice cream freezer. Heavenly!! And there you have it! Health for Life Cooking in June. I hope to see you in class!
Chipotle Burgers – These patties are more or less smoky, slightly spicy and are a delightful, healthy alternative to the high fat standard American burger. The base of these burgers is made with kidney beans and oats. They are served with your way of a whole wheat bun, with all the trimmings including some romaine lettuce fresh from my garden.
Tangy Sweet Cole Slaw – This fresh, crisp cabbage salad is the perfect companion to the Chipotle Burgers. It’s made with green and red cabbage, carrots, apples, and a delicious lime dressing.
Cream of Broccoli Soup – Broccoli is one of the healthiest foods on the planet! It’s a cruciferous vegetable, so it’s loaded with thousands of phytochemicals that are critical for excellent health. I love it and try to eat it every day! This broccoli soup is creamy and delicious and is a quick and easy way to get this super green into your diet.
The eating trends have changed dramatically over the years, and now it is the era of improvisation and technology. To keep pace with the running world improvisation and innovation are the key to survival and it applies not only to food technology but also everything we experience to beautify life.
