I’m not much of a salad eater but this salad I eat several times a week. I really use it as a filler before my lean protein dinner. It contains avocado for the nice healthy fat.
- romaine head
- 2 tbs. guacamole (bought pre-made or your own) or avocado
- 1/2 c. pine nuts
- 1 tbs. miso paste
- 2 tbs. nutritional yeast flakes
- 4-5 cloves garlic
- 1/4 c. coconut water
- 3 drops liquid stevia
From pine nuts down mix in blender (this is your dressing). Assemble cut romaine, guacamole, and drizzle with dressing.
Mix together well and enjoy!
This is a weeknight staple for us! Paired with sweet potato “fries” and avocado, this meal is packed with protein, complex carbs, and essential fats. I think it’s my favorite recipe of all!
- 2 cans black beans (rinsed)
- 1 red pepper chopped
- 2-3 carrots chopped
- 1 onion chopped
- 1/2 bulb of garlic chopped (or you can scale down if you’re not a garlic fan)
- 2 eggs
- 1 c. bread crumbs (I use gluten free)
- 1 TB chili powder
- 1 TB cumin
- goat cheese
- whole wheat buns
Combine all ingredients through Cumin. I use my hands and really squish the beans. Using half the batter, form 8 patties. Top with goat cheese and then add another patty. Bake at 375 for 25-30 min.
If serving for others, I serve on a whole wheat bun. But for me, I go bunless. It’s then dairy free and gluten free.
