Yesterday I did an experiment with Brussel sprouts. Never really liked them but it turns out I love them in a stew!
- Brussel sprouts, maybe three cups? - Zucchini - Carrots, four or five large ones - Onions, two - garlic, three gloves - herbs: thyme, oregano, basil and a cube of herbs - a medium sized cabbage
Fried the onions and garlic in a tiny bit of olive oil, then put all the vegetables cut in pieces into the pan with the herbs and water. Really enjoyed it! With a little mashed potatoe. Serves about 6-8 people?
Put 2 cups spinach in bowl, Place leftover chunked roasted winter squash, sweet potato, carrots, and beets on top. Sprinkle 1 ounce walnut pieces on top. Peel, Core, and slice 1 apple. Cut slices in half, Arrange around the outside.
Enjoy with your favorite dressing. I like to squeeze orange juice over all. I use my apple peeler/corer/slicer gadget to get the applies like you see in the picture in the Team Photos.
I had just cooked mixed beans (like for soup) in a crock pot without the seasoning packet added. They smelled so good, I wanted to use them instead of canned beans today in my salad.
So a cup of hot beans went in the bowl. Then put a cup of spinach, one onion, one tomato, 3 garlic cloves, and a few fresh herb leaves. I used parsley today. Celery leaves would add saltiness. in a food processor and pulse a couple of times. Pour out on top of the beans. Enjoy.
Any cooked legumes would work. Lentils were in the bean soup mix, so technically, the salad was completely anti-angiogenic!
My salad was thrown together tonight from little plastic storage bins I had in my refrigerator, ingredients that were left from other meals last week. So my inspiration was beating the food spoiling fairy to my store tonight. My schedule is a little off because I usually do this on Friday night before grocery shopping on Saturday.
Anyway, I threw these AA ingredients into my large salad bowl: chopped tomato, scallion, roasted cauliflower with garlic from lunch, and almonds. I also added chopped romaine, black beans, corn, and pineapple.
If you were trying to meet a goal of a certain number of AA foods for the day, this was pretty good.
