Last night I decided that I’m a glutton. I know it’s not the way to be but, with the foods I eat, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
As the boyfriend and I sat down to our dinner last night, we both agreed that we eat very well. I’m talking full flavor, clean and healthy foods, and a decent variety. Yum, yum, yum.
I swear, it’s better than it looks. This was (now my favorite dish) a tortilla hummus “pizza.” The idea came from Ohh May where she rocks the pizzas in a whole new way.
Starting with some sprouted tortillas, which were slightly toasted in the oven for a few minutes. Then topped with nutritional yeast and Zucchini Hummus (see recipe below), or as my boyfriend called it, Zummus. Clever.
- 1 large zucchini, chopped into pieces for easier blending
- 5 tbsp lemon juice, fresh
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp cayenne (depending on how spicy you would like)
- 1/2 cup tahini
- 1/2 cup sesame and/or sunflower seeds
Blend all ingredients together and serve!
Before dinner, I took out my present from my kickboxing coach, The Juicing Bible, and got to work.
I found a recipe for a before or after dinner “cocktail” that aides in digestion. Why not?
Into the juicer went red cabbage, fennel bulb, a green apple, and ginger, and
sprinkled doused with cinnamon.
By far the best freakin’ juice I have ever tasted! I’m making this one again tonight. Get this book! It’s got some amazing recipes.
