Good morning and Happy Summer Friday!! In my nutrition practice, I am often asked for recipe ideas and in an effort to better serve I have started to compile some of my favorites below. It is my intention to continue to add to this list. Enjoy!

 

Vegetarian:

Roasted Carrots with Honey, Rosemary and Thyme 

Chana Daal with Cauliflower and Coconut Milk

Slow Cooker Pumpkin, Chickpea and Red Lentil Curry

Almond and Fig Shake

Beet and Goat Cheese Quinoa Patties

Curried Coconut Cauliflower Soup with Warming Spices

Lentil, Chard and Sweet Potato Curry (served over rice)

 

Non-veg:

Martin's Chicken Basil Sausage- Veggie Stir Fry (this recipe comes from my brother Martin, who sautés onion, garlic, + ginger with veggies like cabbage, brussel sprouts, butternut squash and kale, adds cut up chicken sausage and mixes all the ingredients with some spices and turmeric, plus a fried egg on top. It's simple and delicious!

Shrimp + Mussel Basil Stir-Fry over Turmeric-Curry Quinoa- Another simple recipe that can also be made from fresh or pre-cooked frozen seafood for a quick and satisfying meal. Sauté garlic and ginger in oil, then add any vegetables of your choice including peppers, add the seafood with a dash of white wine or tequila and then cook until tender, add some fresh basil and serve over quinoa (this can be made in the rice cooker with spices like turmeric, ginger powder, curry powder, etc). Enjoy!

Red Snapper with Tomato, Olives and Capers: This is a recipe I made some variation of regularly for many years. It's delicious with a green salad or sautéed veggies and rice.
