Wardeh, thanks for all of the directions. I still am not sure if I have this right though. Sorry.
This is what has been cookin’ in my kitchen.
Trout served with Quinoa Tabouli
For the fish I just seasoned it with sea salt and lemon pepper. I then added some sliced lemons and sliced onion and put a dollop of butter across the top. Baked it in a 400°F oven for about 20 minutes.
3 cups cooked quinoa
½ cup sweet onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
½ bunch of parsley
Sea salt to taste
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a sauté pan. Cook the onion and garlic on low heat, until the onions are transparent. Stir in the quinoa. Pour this mixture into a bowl. Add the parsley, lemon juice and sea salt to taste. Add 2 more tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, and mix until blended. Can be served warm or cold.
Pesto with Whole Grain Pasta and Chicken
16 oz. fresh basil
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh rosemary
1 cup fresh-grated parmesan cheese
3 tbsp pine nuts
Juice of ½ lemon
½ tsp sea salt
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
In a food processor or blender mix garlic, basil, rosemary, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, lemon juice and salt. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while machine is running. Mix until blended.
Peanut Butter Bars
Peanut Butter Bars with Sprouted Wheat
1 stick butter
4 tbsp raw honey
¼ cup raisins
½ cup dates
¼ cup water
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup fresh-ground sprouted wheat flour
1 cup soaked and dehydrated oats
½ tsp baking soda
In a mixing bowl cream the butter and honey together. In a blender or food processor puree the raisins, dates and water, then add to the butter mixture. Add the egg and beat well. Mix in the peanut butter. Fold in the dry ingredients. Bake in a pre-heated 350° F oven for 20-25 minutes. Cool and eat or frost with Chocolate Frosting (page ).
**You don’t have to use sprouted wheat or soaked oats, whole wheat and regular rolled oats will work fine.
¼ cup raw honey
4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp raw milk or cream
2 tsp butter
Mix all of the ingredients together.
