All Day Omelets

  My husband and I LOVE omelets.  But we rarely eat them for breakfast.  They are one of our favorite DINNERS!  Yup, dinner!  You can also have them for breakfast or lunch - they are a great meal for anytime of the day!  They are also quick, simple and so easy to make!  Eggs whites are a complete protein, very low in calories and contain no fat or cholesterol.  Add in your favorite chopped veggies, protein and some cheese and you have...

 

Walnut Pate’

This pate’ is great on crackers, spooned in celery, mushroom caps or endive, or in tomato stacks (recipe in notes). It’s a great appetizer, snack or light lunch. The walnuts require soaking before preparing the pate’ so plan ahead. Soaking is easy, just place the nuts in a mason jar, fill with cool water and screw on the lid. Soak for 4-6 hours. 1 cup of walnuts will yield 1 1/4 cups soaked. This recipe is from “Raw Food...

 

Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart

Ingredients: 1 cup brown rice 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 egg, lightly beaten 4 Roma tomaotes, quartered 6 cloves garlic, unpeeled 1 tablespoon olive oil Freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup fresh basil 2...

 

Chicken Meatloaf

  Growing up I hated meatloaf night - sorry Mom!  But I was put to the challenge when my husband said he had never had meatloaf (he’s from South Africa and it’s not a staple food there!) and never had seen any that looked good.  Surely if I used clean wholesome ingredients I could come up with a tasty meatloaf that we would both like!  Mission accomplished!  My husband couldn’t believe how delicious this was and my kids...

 

Hummus Wrap

I am a dip and sauce kind of girl.  So for me, hummus was right up my alley.  I only wish I had discovered hummus sooner as I love dipping pita chips in it for a delicious snack or using it as a base for a sandwich.  This recipe is one that I make for lunch often.  I change up the ingredients depending on what I have in my refrigerator at the time.  There is no wrong way to make this wrap - throw in your favorite veggies, add an additional...

 

One Pot Miso Soup

The past couple of weeks we (my family) have all been participating in the “share and share alike” maxim by passing along a nasty little cold germ to one another. I was the latest victim. I was in need of some chicken soup but being vegetarian I needed another option. A nice nourishing miso soup would do the trick. This is a basic recipe for miso soup. It can be changed to suit your taste by adding whatever vegetables you like, cubed...
