Fruit Tart

Ingredients

  • 15 Medjool dates, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes*

  • 1 and 1/2 cups raw unsalted cashews*

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I use vanilla, but any flavor works)

  • Assorted sliced fresh fruit

Instructions

  1. Spray the bottom of a 9-inch tart or cake pan or a pie dish with nonstick spray and line the pan with parchment paper on top. Set aside. (The spray helps the parchment stick to the pan, making spreading the crust easier. The parchment prevents the crust from sticking to the pan. If you don’t mind the taste of nonstick spray on the crust, you don’t have to use parchment. Just spray the pan with the nonstick spray and add the crust.)

  2. Make sure your dates are soft by soaking in warm water for 10 minutes. Make sure you drain them and chop in half before using.

  3. Pulse the dates and cashews together until thick “dough” is formed and the cashews are all broken up, as pictured above. The dough will be moist from the oil in the nuts. Press evenly into prepared tart pan and partly up the sides.

  4. Spread the yogurt on top of the crust. Decorate with fresh fruit. Slice, serve, enjoy.

Notes

  1. Make Ahead Instructions: The crust can be made 1-2 days in advance. Cover tightly and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Continue with step 4. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

  2. Dates: Instead of dates, try 1 and 1/2 cups raisins or dried cranberries.

  3. Nuts: Instead of cashews, try walnuts. A smooth, softer nut is best. I don’t recommend almonds. Use salted nuts for a salty/sweet crust.

Overnight Oats

Step One: Fill up 1/2 bowl with "Quick Oats" oatmeal

Step Two: Add your favorite protein powder

Step Three: Add your blueberries, raspberries, bananas, peaches AND/ OR apples

Step Four: Add Almond Milk, stir thoroughly to mix in the protein powder

Step Five: Top with nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans,etc) and flax or chia seeds, cinnamon is also a flavorful spice full of antioxidants

(Spice up the fruit and nuts daily to keep your taste buds satisfied. Some flavorful combo ideas: Apples and Cinnamon, Peach Brown Sugar, Strawberry Banana, Blueberry Raspbery with a hint of Dark Chocolate Granola)

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 15 oz ricotta cheese, 1 container

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 28 oz crushed san marzano tomato, OR 2 cans marinara sauce

  • 6 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish

  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Bake Time: 45 minutes

Organic Vegetables

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

 

2. Cut off the ends of the eggplant, then slice lengthwise about ⅛-inch (3-mm) thick. Sprinkle the eggplant slices with sea salt on both sides and let sit for 10 minutes to draw out moisture.

 

3. Lightly grease a griddle pan with olive oil and heat over medium heat. Grill the eggplant slices for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and set aside.

 

4. In a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-low heat, then add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for about 3 minutes, until the garlic is fragrant but not browned. Add the crushed tomatoes and 1 teaspoon of salt, stir well.

 

5. Simmer for 10 minutes, reducing the heat if the sauce begins to bubble too much. Add the basil and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and set aside.

6. In a medium bowl, beat the egg, then add the ricotta, 1½ cups (150 g) of mozzarella, ¾ cup (80 g) of Parmesan, and the Italian seasoning. Mix well to combine.

 

7. Assemble the lasagna. In a 9x13-inch (23x33-cm) baking dish, add enough sauce to cover the bottom of the dish and spread in an even layer. Add a layer of eggplant slices, covering the bottom of the dish completely. Add a layer of peppers. 

 

8. Add a layer of the ricotta mixture and spread in a thin, even layer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, finishing with a layer of sauce. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan on top.

 

9. Bake for 45 minutes, until cheese is fully melted.

10. Remove the lasagna from the oven and let rest for 15-20 minutes before serving to give the lasagna time to set.

  • Serve garnished with fresh basil

  • ENJOY!
