A family that I ate with on my mission would make this garlic rice that I died over every time! They make it a lot in brazil…so I guess it’s not Indian to go with this dish but you can add garlic to about anything right? The recipe for this delicious garlic rice will be coming soon!!

Prosciutto & Fig Pizza with Balsamic Reduction

photo 2

I don’t often put amounts in the ingredients list of pizza toppings because I feel like it’s a personal preference. Myself, I don’t like a lot of cheese, but some people like tons of cheese! So you can decide for yourself:)

Ingredients:

prosciutto

smoked gouda

Fig jam

fresh basil

1/3 c balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  1. Make your Sweet Potato Crust.
  2. While the crust is cooking make your balsamic reduction. Add your balsamic vinegar to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and let it cook till reduced to about half of the amount. Stir frequently and watch so it doesn’t burn. It will be a very sticky substance when its done.
  3. Remove the crust from the oven, spread fig jam over crust, top with grated cheese, slices of prosciutto and place it back in the oven until the cheese is melted (about 5-8 minutes)
  4. Finally, top with balsamic reduction and fresh basil.

*can also top with spinach!

Fried Egg & Mushrooms

Eggs from the Farmer’s Market are SO much better than regular store bought eggs….just sayin….

I like to cook my fried eggs with a runny yolk so I can dip my mushrooms into it! Is anyone else into that?

ALSO

What is your favorite way to eat your eggs?

Glory Bowl

g

I tried this “glory” sauce at the Calgary Farmers Market about a year ago and have wanted to recreate it ever since…so I finally did! All the these flavors go so well together….nom nom!

Ingredients:

4 candy cane beets

3 tbsp. chives, chopped

2 c steamed broccoli

handful toasted almonds

3 carrot, shaved

2 tbsp. red onion

1 medium head of cauliflower, rinsed

2 garlic cloves

1 tbsp olive oil

Himalayan salt & pepper to taste

Sauce

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp tahini

1 tsp coconut aminos

2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 garlic clove, minced

Directions:

1.Pre- heat your oven to 400F. Drizzle olive oil over your beats, wrap in tinfoil and bake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes or until beets are tender. Place almond in the oven to toast them about 8 minutes before the beets are done- watch them so they don’t burn.

2. Wash your cauliflower, remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely. Cut into smaller chunks and place in food processor. It may not all fit in at once, and you do NOT want to over process it or it will get mushy. I pulsed couple florets of cauliflower until it was small with the texture of rice then transferred it to a bowl and repeated with remaining cauliflower.

2. Sauté olive oil & mince garlic in a medium frying pan. Raise the heat to med- high and add the cauliflower rice. Cover and cook approx. 5- 6 minutes, stirring frequently until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and place in med bowl.

3. Steam your broccoli till tender, shave your carrots, chop your chives & red onions.

4. In a mini chopper mix all sauce ingredients till smooth.

5. Add all of your ingredients to a bowl and drizzle with the sauce!
