Example breakfast

May 4, 2015

This is Taco Tuesday in a bowl, or meatless Mondays when you use Tempeh for a meat stuffing instead of beef, chicken, or pork.

  • 2m
  • 5m
  • New American
  • 1 salad

Ingredients

  • 4 oz mixed greens
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 c cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 lb chicken strips or tempeh
  • 1/2 c crushed tortilla chips

Dressing

  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. wine vinegar
  • 1/2 lime, squeezed
  • 1 tsp. taco seasoning
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 dash salt and pepper
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

Optional

  • 1 handful cheddar cheese
  • 2 scallions, sliced thin
  • 1 c black beans, drained
  • 1 tsp. agave nectar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Instructions

Dressing

  1. In a glass measuring cup add the dressing ingredients and stir with a fork until thick and well blended.

Salad

  1. In a saucepan add the filling ingredients and cook on medium until meat or tempeh is golden brown and liquid is dried up. This takes about 15 minutes total. Use a spatula and scrape pan and tempeh every 5 minutes. You don’t want to scrape pan too often because you want the bottom of the tempeh to brown on the pan. Don’t let it burn, which means you might need to adjust temp or time accordingly. All stove tops are different.
  2. Chop cherry tomatoes and all remaining ingredients. Shred a handful of fresh cheddar cheese.
  3. Put all the salad ingredients, including “meat” of choice, in a large salad bowl. Add dressing and toss well.

Example pie

May 25, 2017

This vanilla cake can be made with any fresh fruit. Grab some strawberries when they're their sweetest, in June.

  • 20m
  • 1h
  • 1h 20m
  • New American

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. butter for inside pan
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 lb strawberries

Whipped Cream

  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 c heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter the inside of a 10-inch pie pan, or deep 9" pie pan.
  2. Hull and halve strawberries.
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, beat butter and 1 cup sugar until pale and fluffy with an electric mixer, about 3 minutes. Mix in egg, milk and vanilla until just combined. Add dry mixture gradually, mixing just until smooth.
  4. Pour into prepared pie plate. Arrange strawberries, cut side down, on top of batter, closely together in a single layer (feel free to overlap them). Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over berries.
  5. Bake cake for 10 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 325°F and bake cake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out free of wet batter from the center of the cake, about 50 minutes to 60 minutes. (Gooey strawberries on the tester are of course fine!) Let cool in pan on a rack. Cut into wedges. Optionally serve with lightly whipped cream.
