Raw Spinach Pesto Pasta

June 21st, 2013 by Heather


Since summer weather hit, most of my evening meals consist of spiralized veggies topped with some kind of yummy sauce. Thankfully, I’m not left to my creativity alone. I’ve had lots of help from our Raw Foods Thursdays participants.

Here are a few posts that you’ll want to check out:

 

Do you have a spiralizer yet? If not, let me highly recommend that you get one. I guarantee that it won’t become just one more kitchen gadget that you need to find room to store once the newness wears off. I use mine almost on a daily basis. Not only does it give you creative ways to use veggies but it increases your vegetable consumption, because squiggly veggies are just so much more fun to eat than veggie sticks!

I’ve been wanting to share this raw pasta dish for a while. It’s super easy to make and even more fun to eat! I hope you enjoy it! (more…)


gluten free nutella recipe

gluten free nutella recipe

Everyone has different reasons for making food (like Nutella) at home which they can buy off of the shelf; it might be economic or for health reasons. Since the first time I tried Nutella, I never had the desire to make it. But, when the day came that my darling dairy-free daughter could no longer partake because of the milk in it, I considered it.

I had seen a recipe for the hazelnut spread in my high-powered blender but assumed it was hard. I decided one day to take a look and was very happy to find that 1. it was not that hard (1 hour start to finish with time in between when you don't have to do anything), 2. I had most of the ingredients in my cabinet with the exception of the hazelnuts (aka filberts), and 3. the recipe did not have any dairy in it. Ok, time to shift the paradigm again. (more…)

gluten free smoothie

I have been/am still of the persuasion that a healthy fruit smoothie does not require sugar, or artificial sweeteners that are not plant-based.

Smoothies simply require good fruit (or vegetables) and a plant derived sweetener, if desired. (more…)

Caramelized Corn and Avocado Salad with Chimichurri Dressing

chimichurri gluten free recipe

This chimichurri was so good, I made it two days in a row. While there is nothing fancy or different about this chimichurri, I do believe it is an under utilized recipe.

Classic chimichurri is good on just about anything you can think of. So far, we’ve had it on fish and perfectly cooked pork tenderloin this week. Tomorrow I plan on using it as a dressing for my (more…)

gluten free mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a kitchen staple that adds rich flavor and binds ingredients in dishes from tuna salad to crab cakes.

If you've ever tasted homemade mayonnaise, you know that the rich flavor and silky texture is nothing like what we buy at the grocery store. There are many good reasons to learn how to make homemade mayonnaise, first and foremost because it's incredibly easy and calls for ingredients that most of us have on hand every day. (more…)

This recipe for Potato Salad with Fresh Green Beans and Tarragon Dressing is not made with mayonnaise. That means it is a safer salad choice for picnics and cookouts. Bacon and a fabulous fresh tarragon dressing make this recipe a real crowd favorite. (more…)

I have tended not to use coconut products as my primary cookie eater isn't really a fan.  However, in an aberrant moment I bought several bags of coconut flour in with my order of brown rice flour, so I need to start using it.  I also had a jar of (more…)
