If you live in So-Cal you’re fully aware that Santa Ana season has arrived in full-wind! At the first sign of wind-cold-dryness-attack last week, I began downing bowl after bowl of my Chinese medicinal inspired stamina soup. Although I usually have a beef stock on hand, this time I was without, so I turned to a 12 ounce container of organic beef broth. Along with my vegetables, herbs and spices, it did the trick and I’m feeling great now!
Garden Eats has received a handful of requests expressing curiosities about the nutritive qualities of beets. Popularized by its aphrodisiac offering juice and garlic-breath covering root, this blood-nourishing tuber has been used as a medicinal food staple since the middle ages for immune, digestive and blood concerns. Magnus is joining us today from his UK kitchen to whip up his fave winter beet curry!
We searched high and low for the best recipe out there, tried a few and then settled on our own creation! We like our cornbread on the sweeter side, so you’ll find these a bit more desert-like. They definitely still make a perfect complement to all of the savory flavors you’ll be enjoying tomorrow. Let us know what you think!
Sometimes being gluten free is tough because foods we once enjoyed simply aren’t replaceable. While there are many gluten free stuffing recipes out there, we opted for a whole new twist with our creamy quinoa. It’s easy, quick and offers that comfort food feeling we all know and love!
Love pumpkin, but over the idea of pie? We are too so we’re making Bryant’s chocolate chip pumpkin muffins to snack on tomorrow. Bryant’s Thanksgiving dessert is not only easy to make, the kids will love popping these healthy-for-them treats into their mouths! Packed with beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, calcium and magnesium and essential fatty acids, these little muffins make them a fitting seasonal treat. Bryant’s grandmother, who made the muffins for Bryant as a child would be happy to see him sharing his version of her original recipe with Garden Eats today!
Meredith remarks that this is an, “amazingly soothing smoothie”- after taste testing today, we agree! Because carrots take time to juice, Meredith suggests adding extra milk to make it even smoother. After having it with the carrot, we think it’s worth the extra couple minutes required to juice them up!
