Ok i just made my own organic ceaser dressing. You take 1/3 cup of apple c. v. ,1/3 cup of soy sauce, 1 cup of v olive oil, 2 kinda chopped garlic cloves, an about half a pinkies length of peeled ginger root kinda chopped and 1/3 cup of honey. Put in blender on smoothie setting and make sure there are no chucks when your done. I haven't tried it on salad yet but just tasting after i was done was enough to know i will use this recipe for a long time to come. Enjoy!

hahaha agreed but it makes up for it in deliciousness :-D
Comment by diskydoer400 on January 20, 2011 at 4:06pm
OK I'll try it tomorrow. I will say that its not the most attractive veggie or whatever it is. thanx for the recipe. Have a good one.

I sure do! This is an excellent appetizer recipe :-)

Trim the stems and tops off the artichokes. Place them into a pot of boiling water or stock and boil for approx. 20 minutes or until tender. Once they are tender remove them from the pot and drain them (they take on a lot of water between the leaves). Take a mixture of 3 parts organic Italian dressing and 1 part extra virgin olive oil and liberally pour it over the artichokes making sure it gets deep between the leaves. 

 

To eat, just pull off the leaves and eat the pulp at the end of eat. When you reach the middle, carefully remove ALL of the hairs to access the artichoke heart. 

 

I particularly enjoy this recipe because it is very easy and it reduces the waste associated with recipes that require you buying artichoke hearts in a jar.

Ok i will have to try that. Do you Know any very simple artichoke recipes. I have never had that  but looking for new veggies to incorporate into the families meal planning. Thanks for the salad suggestion. I will post some other recipes whenever i remember how i made them.  I cook by smelling the ingredients and coming up with a mixture in my brain. Do you eat meat? I had some great bay scallops last night.

Quinoa salad is awesome because of how versatile it is. You cook the quinoa similar to rice (and until the outer germ has come off) and then you can be creative as to what you add. I like adding corn, spinach, tomatoes, and spices (Moroccan spices or just cumin or whatever suits your fancy). I prefer to cook the quinoa in stock to add some extra flavour but that is not necessary.

 

I like serving it with cooked eggplant and grape tomatoes which I bake with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.

 

Just an FYI- Quinoa is high in protein and has a wonderful earthy flavour :-)

Yes it surprised me how good it is. I just started eating all orgainic and about 50% raw maybe three weeks ago. what is  Quinoa salad ? I dont know much right now about this kind of eating but i do know what tastes good. Raw is a big step from Cajun. I try the find the most simplistic recipes.  oh and hello
Comment by Westcoaster on January 16, 2011 at 11:37am
I LOVE that recipe Justine :-) Delicious!

Sounds like it would partner well with a quinoa salad.

Here's a easy asparagus recipe. Bend your asparagus at the base it will break where it needs to. Put in in a baking sheet and coat with a healthy amount of virgin olive oil and a tad bit of salt which is optional, hit it with some pepper. Mix it all with your hand. Then space them in the sheet and cook on about 400 for maybe fifteen min. You want them to be crisp not withered.      I only started eating  this about a week ago and i have never tried it before and now i will eat it every week it's great and great for you.  Hello everyone i will put more recipes on later. I have a good Brussels sprout recipe in mind.  Take it easy   :)
