Real Food Menu for Week of 9.28.2020

This week’s chocolate chip cookie dough dip might be one of my shining moments in real food trickery. You see, Mr. Arthur doesn’t care for chickpeas. Or so he thought. As it turns out, if you whirl them up in the food processor with a few accompaniments and a zhoosh of stevia sweetened chocolate chips, they become his new favorite food group!

Here’s our weekly nosh:

Mark’s Breakfast:
Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal – Few things are more comforting than the flavor combo of apples and cinnamon. If you’re in the ‘Noke and looking for star anise, Fresh Market has it.

Mark’s Lunch:
Mediterranean Green Lentil Soup – My late mother-in-law was one heck of a cook. Everything that came out of her kitchen was amazing, not the least of which was her lentil soup. This veggie-packed version comes close. We love a warm bowl of this nourishing goodness.

Dinners:

Mediterranean Chickpea Quinoa Bowls – New Recipe! Here’s another solid keeper for weekly meal prep. Make extra red pepper sauce, it’s so good!

Keto White Chicken Chili – We’re not keto, so I leave out the cream cheese and substitute coconut milk for the heavy cream. It’s still creamy and delicious!

Cod with Tomato Cream Sauce – New Recipe! Every now and then we take a break from salmon and sample a whitefish. We like this with a side of brown rice.

Keto Meatballs and Sauce with Zoodles – This one is so tasty! The cream in the sauce cuts the acidity of the tomatoes. I’m loving the wide zoodles, To make them, just slice a little off the side of the zucchini so that it lays flat on the cutting board. Use a vegetable peeler to slice thin, wide noodles. I saute them in coconut oil for a few minutes, just until tender. Very few things in life are worse than a mushy zoodle.

Snack:
We’re bidding a fond farewell to our nightly slice of watermelon, and welcoming other seasonal offerings. I’m excited to see dragon fruit back on the shelves in the grocery store! It tastes somewhat like a cross between a pear and an apple. Slice it, peel back the magenta skin and eat the white flesh.

Treat:
No Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip – This is a favorite recipe and very kid friendly! Take this to your next party, but don’t tell your friends it’s good for them. They’ll think it’s conventional cookie dough dip. Your secret is safe with me!

Real Food Menu for Week of 8.10.2020

We like to fix new recipes a time or two before recommending them on the blog. Often, they become instant favorites, or at least something we really enjoy and would make again. On the rare occasion we don’t care for one, we scrap it and move on. We hit on one recently and boy, is it a doozy! Like throw out the entire dish, bad. The combo of radish and garlic completely overwhelmed the apple and cucumber. Maybe I’ll try it again without the garlic? Nah. Sample if you’re brave:

Here are the keeper dishes that made the cut:

Breakfast for Mark:

Tomato and Cheese Pie

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Adapted from the Supermarket Diet Cookbook. This dish could be called Tomato Basil Pie because the ricotta and parmesan take a back seat to the fresh flavors of the other basil and tomato. Served warm or at room temperature, this pie makes a nice breakfast or brunch side dish.

Ingredients

  • 15 oz. ricotta cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp. salt, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1/8 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 1/4 c. milk (I use almond or unsweetened coconut milk)
  • 1 T. cornstarch or arrowroot powder
  • 1 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 lb. ripe tomatoes (3 medium) thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, with whisk or fork, beat ricotta, eggs, parmesan, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch or arrowroot powder with milk until blended; whisk into cheese mixture. Stir in basil. Pour mixture into 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate.
  3. Arrange tomato slices on top, overlapping if necessary. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake pie until lightly browned around edge and center is puffed, 30-35 minutes.
  5. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy! http://www.arthurizedhome.com

Mark’s Lunch:
Chop Chop Fresh Veggie Salad – Crunchy and delicious! Minus the olives and feta, because a certain someone still doesn’t care for them. *ahem*

Dinner:

Carb Buster Breakfast – We never tire of breakfast for dinner. Protein and veggie-packed, this simple dinner is savory and satisfying.

Tuscan Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Creamy Garlic Sauce – Delish!
https://www.savorytooth.com/sun-dried-tomato-chicken/

Watermelon, Cucumber and Feta Salad – New! Simple, light and refreshing; perfect for using up garden produce these hot, summer days. That combination of cucumber, mint and lime is amazing!
https://cleanfoodcrush.com/watermelon-cucumber-feta-salad/

Mustard Glazed Baked Chicken Thighs – A favorite dinner; this one is kid-friendly (the mustard flavor is subtle) and quick to prepare.

Snack:
Cannellini Lemon Dip – New! My thirteen year old niece pronounced this dip “really good” and then scolded my sister for taking “her” dip. Ha ha! I guess it’s a keeper too. I couldn’t find preserved lemon locally so I ordered it online. If possible, use a product with no preservatives or added sugars. Look for three ingredients: lemons, water and sea salt.

Treat:
No Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip – This is one of those 10% treats. Minus the chocolate chips, this recipe is processed sugar-free. We use stevia sweetened chocolate chips. Hubs eats his with gluten free cookies, I’m having mine with apple slices. Gluten free pretzels are a tasty dipper as well.
