As many of you already know, I love cookbooks and lately I have been creating my own recipes. It was hard for me to narrow it down but here are a few that feature the ingredients I shared yesterday.
Sometimes I add a piece of fennel and pear and make it a juice health-benefits-fennel . For me, anything that can help with inflammation is a god send !
Years ago when I was pregnant, I used to wake up in the night and sneak downstairs for a bowl of Frosted Flakes. At the time, nothing tasted better ! Here I am years later and, although it happens much less frequently, if I wake up, I stumble to the kitchen and pour myself a bowl of home made granola and douse it with vanilla oat milk….oh my goodness how things change !
This is my own creation – “Full of Goodness”
Arugula ( I measure depending on how many people will be at the table…1 handful per person ?)
Fermented shallots ( I love Juniper Farms version but you can always make your own !)
1-2 pears diced
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
1-2 dried figs ( optional )
1/2 cup crumbled goat’s milk cheese
Combine ingredients in a small jar and shake .
Pour over salad just before serving .
Juice from 1/2 pink grapefruit
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil or camelina oil
2 Tbsp champagne vinegar
1-2 cloves crushed garlic
2-3 Tbsp honey ( to taste )
red Chile flakes ( to taste )
salt and pepper
Blueberries or strawberries….the choice is yours 🙂
