Minty's Ricotta Spread

Post by Amigoo » Fri Jan 20, 2023 6:16 pm

Minty's Ricotta Spread

A nutritious spread with surprisingly mild flavors.
Try on wholegrain toast with sprinkle of paprika;
also tasty as veggies/chips dip. :roll

15oz container whole milk ricotta
1/4 cup coarse ground Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp turmeric extract powder
1 1/2 tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp garlic granules
1/2 tbsp liquid chlorophyll

Mix well and refrigerate.

:idea: Suddenly, a veggie spread alerts that more fresh veggies
would be consumed with culinary uplifting (into one's mouth). :lol:

Re: https://www.besthealthmag.ca/article/ru ... ion-facts/

"Rutabagas are lower in carbohydrates than other starchy vegetables like potatoes or squash;
they have about half as many carbs per serving as potatoes and are a good source of fibre."

"Like other members of the brassica family, such as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and cabbage, rutabagas contain bioactive compounds called glucosinolates. As antioxidants, glucosinolates shut down the action of carcinogens and clear out pesky free radicals that can cause damage to cells. Glucosinolates also fight inflammation in the body by setting off a cascade of activity, including activating detoxification enzymes in the liver and triggering immune functions, all of which decreases the risk of developing cancer and other chronic diseases. Some glucosinolates are even capable of limiting and preventing tumour growth."

:scratch: Who knew?! Rutabagas are related to the brassicas! 8)

Patty's Faux Sausage

Post by Amigoo » Wed Jan 25, 2023 7:52 am

Patty's Faux Sausage

A Proof of Concept with good potential!
Or use as "sausage helper" for better nutrition
(stir in cooked ground sausage before baking).

:arrow: Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees;
lightly oil 8" x 8" baking dish.

Simmer 3/4 cup steel-cut oats
in 1 1/2 cups water 5 min.
(or until water absorbed);
remove pan from heat.

:roll Combine, then stir in
(fold in onions last):
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp rubbed sage
1 tbsp dried cilantro
1/2 tsp garlic granules
1 tbsp virgin olive oil
1 med. sweet onion, diced

Spread mixture evenly in baking dish,
cover lightly with foil, bake 45 min.
Remove foil, continue baking 20 min.

:idea: For chili, cool after baking, then chop;
stir into heated sauce and heat as desired
(but don't "cook" to maintain texture). ;)

:sunflower: Speaking of fennel ...

Re: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/fe ... d-benefits
"10 Science-Based Benefits of Fennel and Fennel Seeds"

"Aside from its many culinary uses, fennel and its seeds offer a wide array of health benefits
and may provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects."

Re: https://www.healthline.com/health/fennel-tea

"Fennel tea contains antioxidants, which your body needs to fight the harmful things in your environment
that you are regularly exposed to. When you drink fennel tea, the antioxidants will attach to molecules
in your blood that are fighting oxidative damage. This lessens the load on your kidney and liver,
helps new cell production, and even reduces the signs of aging." 8)

"simply crush the seeds and use them in a tea ball or empty tea bag,
steeping in hot water for 5 to 10 minutes." :roll

Thanks Rod,

The new recipes sound delicious. I am especially eyeing the mango and apple breakfast casserole and the Faux Sausage recipe.
Thanks too for the information regarding rutabagas and the brassica family of vegetables. I am thinking after reading that I would like to get back to my green juice and smoothies again. I'll have to see if I can dig up a blender here. :)

Thanks again I am headed to the store in a bit to get some fennel seed for tea and the Faux sausage recipe.

:sunflower: Regarding heart health:
https://healthyeating.sfgate.com/benefi ... -3991.html

"Phytonutrients in Spanish peanuts multiply the cardiovascular benefits. One of the phytonutrients -- resveratrol -- is the same antioxidant found in grapes, blueberries and wine. In additional to functioning as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, resveratrol prevents hardening of the arteries and blood clots, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Resveratrol also blocks or slows the growth of cancer. Other plant-based chemicals found in Spanish peanuts called phytosterols lower levels of cholesterol."

:roll Found raw in bulk at local health food store ($4.00/lb)
Roast at 350F 30 min. in a baking dish, stirring a few times.
Lotsa calories but also lotsa fiber, especially in the skins.

Serve with fresh pineapple for better digestion. ;)

Hi Rod,
I am old enough to remember when department stores...I think it was Sears in this case... had a little food bar in the center of the store where you could buy freshly roasted peanuts. My dad had a fondness for them so we knew if we went with him to sears there would be Spanish peanuts on the way home. ( (We were far to messy to eat them in the store. :shock: )
I love peanuts and will definitely add them in moderation to my diet now that I know they are packed with such amazing health benefits.
Thank you, Rod.
