Overnight oatmeal is one the easiest, tastiest, and healthiest breakfasts that can be made! Every once in a while, I manage a combination of ingredients that work so well together, I just have to share--this is one such combination.
The flavors of this overnight oat bowl are borderline decadent &
dessert-like, without any refined sugars or guilt inducing
ingredients! Slightly sweet, slightly spicy & wholesomely filling--I
do encourage you to give this tasty & healthy breakfast a go...
I first encountered Pan de Yuca when I first entered Ecuador by bus--smack dab in the middle of a year long journey that began in Costa Rica. I lived in the small village of Peguche for 3 months, visiting the markets of neighboring Otavalo a few times a week. Pan de Yuca was one such thing that stuck with me from those visits, as I absolutely fell in love with Yuca (not to be confused with Yucca), finding myself eating it nearly every day just about any way you could buy it or prepare it!
Yuca, also known as manioc or cassava, is an amazing tuber that cooks similarly to potato but has a unique and satisfying flavor all of its own. I was delightfully happy to discover that here in the states you can easily purchase Tapioca starch/flour, which is the powdered form of this much loved Latin American root.
While traditionally made with freshly made queso blanco in Ecuador, I chose to make it with a blend of feta & parmesan for an extra dose of cheesy flavor, as I am a self admitted cheese fiend! But, if you would like to be more traditional, you can make this with queso fresco instead (easily found here in the states).
This bread is so very wonderfully chewy and cheesy, and whether or not you adhere to a gluten free diet, I promise that you will be amazed by this easy & tasty bread!!!
I derived much joy from recreating one of my beloved favorites from travels past, and I so hope it inspires & transports you too...
I was craving something fruity when I threw this delightful little salad together. I threw in some quinoa & greens for some extra nutritional power, and wow, the combo turned out excellently!
This salad has a subtle coconut flavor that nicely complements the fruit, and some crunch & chewiness from the edamame and dried cranberries--such a pleasing mix of textures & flavors! Throw on some rich & spicy dressing, and you are in for a real treat...perfect for these warmer days...
When I threw these veggie burgers together, I admittedly didn't expect the textures & flavors to turn out as well as they did. I was beyond pleasantly surprised--these burgers are a real keeper!
My inspiration for these came from wanting to incorporate more legumes into my little one's diet. And, boy was I happy that he loved these as much as I did!
These delightful vegetarian patties are chock full of protein & fiber, hold together & cook incredibly well, and truly taste great just about any way you choose to eat them!
The flavor of these muffins is out of this world! Take my word for it. Every single ingredient perfectly complements the next.
They are incredibly tasty. And to boot, they have a beautiful texture--moist, fluffy, & chewy all at the same time!
I found these to make a very satisfying breakfast that was easy & fun to throw together, and with a special heartiness that makes them deliciously filling...
This delicious gluten free pizza crust is a staple in our
household...as my little one gobbles it down in no time.
It is incredibly quick & easy to throw together, tastes amazing, has a superb texture, and complements nearly any topping you can think of (and is even wonderful on its own)!
