California Roll in a Bowl
Very Good 4.6/5

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

This is even great for a party and not cooking the noodles makes it easier, saves time and thickens the sauce.

Crispy Green Beans with Pesto
Very Good 4.3/5
(13 ratings)

The trick to learning to like vegetables you hate is to disguise their appearance and flavor. Think about what it is you dislike about that particular vegetable.
I asked Fred why he's anti-green beans. It turns out that he remembers the long, mushy canned beans from childhood.
Step 1: Chop the beans into 1-inch pieces.
Step 2: Change texture. Sauté them in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper on high heat until they're crispy on the outside and still slightly firm.
Step 3: Change the flavor: Add pesto (with homemade lemony basil from the co-op) and an extra bit of parmesan cheese!
Results: "Is this pasta?" Fred asks as I hand him a plate of beans.

A great way to use local summer produce!!

This is best served warm but is also good cold.

Sauce can also be used as a great topping for bruschetta.

Took a basic recipe for a granola bar and changed it quiet a bit to make it healthy - that is the good thing about making these granola bars, you don’t always have to add the same dried fruits/nuts. You could always change it based on what is available in your pantry or what suits your mood

(not my recipe but I wanted the nutrition info)
