Radiant Recipe: Healthy Green Wraps

March 22nd, 2012 | no comments

Collard GreensCollard greens or cabbage leaves are awesome substitutes for tortilla wraps and bread.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

2 bunches collard greens
1/3 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added aduki beans, rinsed and drained
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 cucumber, finely chopped
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds

Directions:

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Remove and discard thick stems from collard greens and place leaves in boiling water. Cook 3 minutes or until just tender.  Gently remove leaves from water and drain in a colander.  Carefully transfer 12 largest leaves to a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Chop remaining leaves and squeeze to drain excess liquid (you should have about 1 cup chopped leaves).

Collard Green WrapsIn a large bowl, whisk together orange juice, tahini and garlic.  Add chopped collards, rice, beans, bell pepper and sesame seeds.  You will have about 4 cups mixture.  Arrange a reserved collard leaf on your work surface and top with 1/3 cup rice filling.  Roll up, starting with the large end of the leaf and rolling it over the filling, tucking in the ends, like a burrito.  Repeat w ith remaining leaves and filling and serve.

Yum!

Essential 7 Super Foods Recommendations

February 14th, 2012 | no comments

I was fortunate to be invited to appear on KUTV News Channel 2 on February 13 with news anchor Mary Nickles. She was an amazing host and I really enjoyed spending time with her sharing the amazing properties of these superfoods.

I suggest you take a look if are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant. It’s amazing how radiant you can look and feel when you eat these healthy foods.

  1. Quinoa is an ancient grain, high in protein (13 grams in 1 cup cooked), filled with fiber (5 grams per cup) and it’s a naturally good source of iron.
  2. Kale and other dark green veggies offer an excellent source of iron (especially important for women), vitamin A, and lutein for eye health.
  3. Berries– pack an incredible amount of nutritional goodness into a small package. They’re loaded with antioxidants,phytonutrients, low in calories, and high in water and fiber to helpcontrol blood sugar and keep you full longer. They are great at satisfying a sweet tooth.
  4. Sweet Potatoes are power packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and potassium and they taste great!
  5. Avocados are creamy, succulent and contain the best kind of fat (monounsaturated oleic acid) and also help your body block the absorption of bad fats (cholesterol). They’re high in lutein, which aids eyesight, and in potassium and folate, which may reduce the risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. And they’re low in pesticides.
  6. Seaweed (Hijiki, Wakame, Kelp, Nori) Think of eating seaweed as going directly to the source..this is where fish procure their Omega-3’s, meaning you can skip the fish and go straight to the seaweed. Seaweeds are also a two-for-one deal, nutrition-wise: They contain nutrients commonly found in green, leafy vegetables, along with most minerals found in the ocean. They’re also full of magnesium.
  7. Raw Cacoa. Cacao is derived from Theobroma Cacao beans, which literally means Food of the Gods. Cacao contains over 300 healthy compounds including: protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, iron, zinc, copper, calcium and magnesium. Magnesium helps to build strong bones and is a muscle relaxant associated with feelings of calmness. Cacao is also high in sulfur, which helps form strong nails and hair.

Radiant Recipe: Hearty Greens Soup with Bowtie Pasta and Tomatoes

March 19th, 2011 | no comments

Serves 6 to 8

Use all manner of kale, chard or other hearty greens in this filling cold weather soup. Look for Parmigiano Reggiano rinds, ideal for flavoring soups and stews, in the specialty cheese department.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste
4 plum tomatoes, cored and chopped
2 carrots, chopped
8 cups water
1 bunch Swiss chard (about 3/4 pound), roughly chopped
1/2 bunch escarole (about 1/2 pound), stemmed and roughly chopped
1/2 pound dried bowtie (farfalle) pasta
1 (3-inch) Parmigiano Reggiano rind, plus grated Parmigiano Reggiano for garnish
1/4 pound baby spinach

Directions:

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic, onions, bay leaf, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until caramelized, about 15 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook until most of the liquid is released and absorbed, about 5 minutes more. Add carrots and water and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.

Stir in Swiss chard, escarole, pasta and Parmigiano Reggiano rind, reduce heat, cover and simmer until broth is flavorful and greens and pasta are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in spinach and season with salt and pepper.

Remove and discard bay leaf and rind from soup then ladle into bowls, garnish with grated cheese and serve.

Yummy!
