I wanted to pick out and try new recipes so here goes:
My friend Dr. Megan sent me a bunch of veggie recipes from Rachel Ray magazine a couple of months ago. They looked awesome and I finally made one of them this week.
I give you: Baked Eggplant Steaks.
The only substitutions that I made were that I used 3 slices Ezekial bread instead of a loaf of Ciabatta and used regular mozzarella instead of smoked - didn't know where to find that but I think it would have been really good. Also, I just used frozen chopped spinach because I thought it might be easier. It turned out great! I'd recommend maybe skipping the Ezekial and eating these in a long roll. Delicious! Kara ate a little of the eggplant but Nick wasn't having it (I put it in a wrap).
Next up Mama Pea's Anytime Cookies. I renamed them Evacuation Cookies :) Actually anytime I cook with quinoa flour it ends up being an evacuation food! It will clear you out if you know what I mean.
- 1/2 c. ground flaxseed
- 1 c. warm water
- 1 c. whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c quinoa flour
- 1/2 c. oat flour
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 c. coconut oil
- 1/4 c. almond milk
- 2 T maple syrup

Nick was into these. Not too too much sugar and make a good breakfast cookie!
