So first, you can’t steal my word, nutayo. Ok, you can. But I just made it up and I’m super proud of myself. And aside from the oober cool name, they are amazing! This is the perfect celebration of the coming end of winter vegetables.
Sweet Potato Fries & Nutayo Recipe
Sweet potatoes (I only used 1 huge one and it served 4 side item portions)
1 cup pine nuts
½ clove of garlic
¼ cup water or coconut water
½ cup fresh coconut flesh
Here’s an easy freebie. I whipped this up as an accompaniment to some fresh nectarines. This sauce is incredible and surprisingly yummy. It goes well with fruit, and I could totally see it as a topping to some vegan ice cream, as a spread on a sandwich, or as a dip for fruit and crackers.
So, technically it’s not a “pesto” since it not crushed with nuts and herbs by a mortar and pestle, but that was the closest thing I could come up with. Come to think of it, some almonds or walnuts would thicken it up a bit and I bet some parsley wouldn’t taste bad with it either. Feel free to experiment!
Tabouli. Tabouleh. Tabule. It is crazy how many spellings there are to this dish. There are equally as many various forms of ingredients. Feel free to add or subtract any of the veggies.
This is a Mediterranean classic and can be enjoyed on its own, or put in a wrap or sandwich. Speaking of Mediterranean…this is legit. One of my favorite seasons in life was when I was privileged to live in Israel my last semester of undergrad. This is the real deal folks. It’s healthy, light yet filling, vegan, and delicious! I wouldn’t steer you wrong!
Hummus. It’s so delicious and in my mind it’s so healthy. That’s probably why my husband and I will eat the whole batch within a day or two of it being made. Yes, stores sell hummus, but you can make your own just as good and totally fresh so you know everything that’s in it. And it’s super easy!
Once upon a time a cute, ambitious girl who loved to cook had a food blog. Then she studied abroad in Israel, got married, and started her Master’s program. This is the relaunch of that blog.
I figured I’d restart this blog with a BANG! My husband is a cookie aficionado, and these are his favorite. I even made this as his birthday “cake” last year. Because who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies?
