This quiche is healthy and delicious — a recent eater called it "heavenly." The hardest part is making the crust, which is actually very easy. For the crust I used a combination of buckwheat and spelt flours, which was a nice flavor combination with the shiitake mushrooms, spinach, egg and parmesan in the filling. Quiche makes a hearty dinner served with a green salad and is equally great for brunch.Read More
I've been trying to perfect the chocolate chip cookie minus the sugar and white flour and this is the winner! I used only maple syrup to sweeten them and spelt flour for the base. The texture is nice and they are plenty sweet. I used organic dark chocolate chips and extra thick cut organic oats.Read More
This really is the simplest sauerkraut recipe I have ever seen. I adapted it from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions cookbook and all you need are two ingredients. Once you try it and see how easy it is, the process of fermentation seems much less intimidating. You can make this in about 15 minutes and it is ready to eat in as little as three days (though the longer it ages the better). All you need is cabbage, sea salt, a mixing bowl and a mason jar and you can create and witness the process of fermentation.Read More
Before I really started studying holistic health and nutrition, I had my own baking business in Brooklyn and I ate quite a bit of my baked goods. Everything I made was made from the best organic ingredients, but my cookies, brownies, cakes, scones, muffins and biscotti were still full of sugar and white flour. Since I’ve learned so much about the health hazards of those two prominent baking ingredients I’ve been experimenting with alternatives. Banana bread is a staple I’ve made for years and substitutions work well in this recipe.
This is a really delicous granola recipe that I adapted from Berkeley's famous Cheese Board. Their recipe is called Killer Granola and it calls for quite a bit of brown sugar. I substituted with a combination of honey and maple syrup. You could vary the type of nuts and seeds you use to your own taste, but I think pecans make this recipe extra decadent, especially in combination with the maple syrup. If you're making this for more than one person, I would recommend doubling the recipe — it's a little bit addictive and it goes fast. I've been having it for breakfast with some plain yogurt and fruit. Because of the honey, maple syrup and butter, the granola clumps nicely and is good to munch on straight for a snack — it tastes like a cross between a cookie and granola bar in the best way.Read More
