Recipe: Perfect French Toast
So yummy.

Better than ihop.

Ingredients:
  • 4 - 5 slices of deliciously unhealthy fluffy white bread (like Sara Lee Artesano)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBS milk (coconut recommended)
  • 2 TBS butter
  • Maple Syrup (real pure maple syrup highly recommended)
  • Whipped Cream

Instructions:
  1. Melt 1 TBS butter in pan over low medium heat.
  2. Whisk together: eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla.
  3. When pan is ready, coat 1 piece of bread on both sides with the egg mixture, and put it in the pan. Cook for a few minutes, then turn. Should be slightly browned.
  4. My pan is big enough to cook 2 slices at a time. Then I melt the other TBS butter, and cook the other 2 slices. Sometimes there's enough egg-mixture left for an extra slice.
  5. Serve on a plate, topped with maple syrup and whip cream.
. . . P.S. about normal breads ::: glOOten is very bad for u ::: "gums up the works" ..
 
 
Sweet and spicy with a citrus "tang" - I love the flavor of this sauce! Brings a feeling of summer to wintertime. Not that we don't already have plenty of summer in winter here in Tucson...

Mallow Scrambled Eggs and Hashbrowns
There's nothing more nutritious than wild foods, and edible weeds I believe are especially good to eat considering how resilient they are. And they are free and abundant - I pick my mallow in the alleyway across the street.

This is a great way to get some good wild greens into breakfast.

Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBS milk (coconut recommended)
  • 7-10 mallow leaves, chopped small
  • 2 crimini mushrooms, chopped small
  • 1/2 TBS butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp (or more) turmeric
  • sprinkle of pepper

Instructions:
  • melt the butter in the pan over low-medium heat, add the salt.
  • whisk together in a bowl: the eggs, milk, pepper, and turmeric. Stir in the chopped mallow and mushrooms.
  • poor mixture into pan - cook for about a minute, then scramble (chop it up with the spatula and keep turning and mixing until cooked).

Goes great with some hash browns, also cooked in butter and salt. ♥

Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Broccoli
This is a super simple recipe, and really delicious. It has become my favorite way to eat broccoli. The 4th ave Food Conspiracy Co-op sometimes has it in their hot deli section.. not sure if my version is exactly the same but it's pretty good anyway.

Ingredients:
  • Broccoli (chopped, 1 head fresh or 1 bag frozen)
  • 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • red pepper flakes (I use the little packets from pizza hut deliveries)
  • soy sauce (1 tsp or less).
  • sprinkle of sesame seeds

Instructions:
Pan sear the broccoli (cook it on medium heat, covered, on one side until browned, then stir and cook a bit longer to your satisfaction).
Transfer broccoli to a dish and add the other ingredients according to your taste.

Don't overdo the soy-sauce or you'll ruin it.



 
 
layered.. thick.. cheezy.. and semi healthy
these quesadillas are kind of like mini mexican style pizzas.

Ingredients:
a) 2 Tortillas (that will fit into bottom of pan)
b) 4 tablespoons Shredded Cheese (I like Almond Cheese -Pepper Jack flavor)
c) 1 Tofurky Deli Slice (I like the Italian flavor)
d) 1/8 cup Greens (spinach, pea shoots, fresh herbs, whatever you like)
e) 2 tablespoons Salsa (fireroasted from Sprouts is yummy)

Directions:
1) Oil: place a spoonful of oil in pan, warm it up on the lowest temp.
2) Tortilla: Place one tortilla in the pan.
3) Cheese: Add a layer of shredded cheese.
4) Tofurky: tear up a slice of tofurky and spread it out over the cheese.
5) Greens: Add a thin and spread out layer of greens.
5) Tortilla: Place 2nd tortilla on top, and allow to cook for a moment.
6) Flip it over, and cook it for a moment, make sure cheese is melted.
7) Salsa: Remove the quesadilla from pan, add a spoonful of salsa on top and spread it out.
8) Fold the whole quesadilla in half, and dig in! You could use a fork if you're dainty like that, or just start biting into it like I do!
