Muesli Breakfast Mix - "Cream of NO-Wheat"

I'm in LOVE with this delicious blend. Just so you know, some of these ingredients are not raw. Feel free to substitute with a sprouted/dehydrated version. It's Winter on the East Coast, and popped Amaranth and toasted sesame seeds bring out the flavor in this mix! This is one of the tastiest mixes I've made and a favorite in our home.

Sprouted Bread

No, it's not raw. Yes, it's baked. I am not 100 percent raw even though the majority of my posts are about raw, because that is where my passion rests...and it's raw recipes that pop into my mind taunting me to play in the kitchen and give it a whirl. But this lovely bread caught my attention in a wonderful post by Golubka. The ingredient that I use in EVERY single recipe consistently, is L O V E, and that is what I felt when I looked at these photos on this site.  My family is coming for the holiday and I thought a homemade baked bread would be nice. I've never made bread in my life...and I knew I did not want it to contain gluten or yeast....so this recipe and the photos convinced me to give it a try!

Zippy Red Lentil Burgers

These are obviously not raw, but if you are transitioning to a plant based diet, and crave a bit of cooked food on a cold, Winter evening, these are super yummy and easy to prepare. Dairy free Yogurt Sauce on the side. Yummmmy! You can make raw fermented yogurt from almonds...recipe posted elsewhere on this blog. But here is a quick mock yogurt.

Soothing Red Lentil Soup

Revisiting one of my all time favorite cooked soups. It's a creamy and soothing comfort food, for sure. Yumm. I need to make up a batch of this right now. I found this great recipe here and changed it up a bit.

French Lentil Chili

W wanted something warm tonight, so I came up with a French Lentil Chili. Lentils are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. The good news is, they cook quickly. Lentils have a mild and earthy flavor, and are best cooked with strong flavorings.  French green lentils are sort of peppery and hold their shape rather well. They don't get mushy like most other lentils.

Always rinse lentils and pick out stones and other debris. There's no need to soak them. Store lentils  in a cool, dry place.

Roasted Fennel - Super Quick and Easy

Don't have a lot of time? This is a really quick and easy meal to prepare. I'm finding it hard to eat raw all the time in Winter. For lunch I cut up some raw celery and carrots, but when dinner rolls around, I tend to lean towards cooked, but crunchy veggies. 

I had some fennel that I needed to use and this is what I came up with. It was really easy and surprisingly delicious. We were both totally satisfied and full.

Stuffed Portobella Mushrooms

This is one of my favorite cooked meals..although when I prepared it this evening, I left the veggies pretty crunchy and the mushroom was still pretty firm. I usually make this with  spinach, but I didn't have any available, so I used kale leaves and some bok choy leaves instead. It came out great. Coupled with some jasmine rice cooked in mushroom broth, this was a very pleasing meal.

Zippy Black Bean Burgers on Mediterranean Almond Bread

Last night some frozen "leftovers" came in very handy. I removed both the Mediterranean Almond Bread and Zippy Black Bean Burgers from the freezer and placed them in the D for a few hours. I made W a scrumptious "cheeseburger" on the bread with lettuce, avocado mayonnaise, veggie mac cheese spread, sliced tomato and red onion. He loved it.

Hearty Mushroom Barley Soup

It was a dreary, rainy day...a perfect day for a hearty bowl of soup. This is one of my favorite soups and it's very easy to make. I've never really measured anything, so the ingredients listed are approximate values. Get creative and add different kinds of mushrooms or veggies. Let me know how you made out and what adjustments or changes you made. Enjoy!!!

Black-Eyed Pea (Not Quite) Fritters and Dipping Sauce

After our busy day yesterday, I was really too tired to fuss and was happy to find this fairly simple recipe from "Cooking the Whole Foods Way."I made some changes to suit my requirements and combined these little fritters with the leftover kelp and soba noodles, and added a small salad. I try to avoid fried foods, but managed to use very little oil, just enough to brown the outer layer. It was yummy with a spicy dipping sauce.

Celery Root Soup With Granny Smith Apples

The author of "The Conscious Cook Book" was on Oprah the other day, cooking this soup. It looked simple and elegant, so I gave it a try and I am so glad I did. This is a FIVE STAR soup!! It is spectacular! A great soup to make when you want to impress your guests! It looks pretty, it tastes great and it's fairly easy to make. I was so full after 2 bowls that I could not eat anything else for dinner.

Garbanzo Beans, Mushrooms, Zucchini and Rice

It's Christmas Eve and we have to get up very early and drive 2.5 hours to see my girlies and family. By girlies, I am of course referring to my two daughters, and my precious granddaughter.
A few other family members will be there...
