Spicy Grilled Pineapple Tahini Slaw, Smoothies, Toast, Tacos & More  – Oriya Organics Raw Green Protein Powders Giveaway & Review

      Boy, I kinda went a little crazy this month when the folks at Oriya Organics asked me to work up a recipe using their products.  Crazy good though.  Their ingredients are just superbly nutritious. The first time I tried their Super Green Medley, which contains live enzymes, phytonutrients, antioxidants, wheatgrass, barley grass, chlorella, and sprulina,  I sliced lemon, fresh pineapple, cucumber and a tsp. of Super Green Medley powder into a jar of filtered water and let it chill in the fridge over night.  What a wonderful way to start my morning drinking this delicious powerhouse of nutrition the next day.  I’ve been enjoying the same drink, different fruits each morning now and I can feel the energy boost it’s been giving me already. The SuperFood Protein Medley has no processed sweeteners of any kind. It contains a full serving of spirulina and chlorella. On top of a protein, it is a multi-functional cleanser and detoxifier. You can be very creative with recipes including using the protein powder as a flour substitute as opposed to only in smoothies. The SuperGreen Medley is a blend of the most nutrient dense greens on the planet. There are no fillers,…

Sesame Bok Choy Apple Slaw with Baby Bella Dressing

Sesame Bok Choy Apple Slaw with Baby Bella Dressing

   When you don’t have exactly what you think you need for a new dish…sometimes what you do have will surprise you.      I needed to use up a small bag of Baby Bella Mushrooms from my last produce order from From the Farmer.  But I was making a slaw dish with the last of my Bok Choy from the same lot.  Why not?  I made up some delicious slaw dressing using the pureed mushrooms mixed in with traditional slaw seasonings.  No compliant about the nutrition and taste in this side dish.  The Baby Bellas creamed up in the food processor to make a deliciously lite and tangy sauce for my slaw. The color was a tad bit untraditional for slaw.  But I got over that when I took my first fork full.  A new way to make mayo for us here.   If mushrooms in your slaw just doesn’t do it for you, I have several other summer slaws that may light up your grilled corn or veggie burgers.  My idea here is to use your fresh vegetables when they’re ripe and ready.  And if you come up with a new way to encorporate those flavors to your…

Spicy Asian Slaw – and our winner!

Spicy Asian Slaw – and our winner!

A perfect mix of spicy, sweet and tang.  Spicy Asian Slaw. I needed a few side dishes to bring with for our July 4th celebration Thursday and this slaw will brighten up the party for sure.  The slaw is mildly sweet with a touch of ginger (barely a touch) and some healthy stuff like Miso, Broccoli and Red Pepper mixed in.  I made up a jar of Annie’s Oil and Nut-free Berry-Miso Salad Dressing this weekend, (which was just fabulous Annie).  It really got me in the mood for a slightly sweet and spicy dressing for my slaw today. It balanced the spice in the beans and with such low sugar, you can eat as much as you’d like. Whether or not you are celebrating Independence Day this week, the Canadian’s Birthday today or you just need a full flavored dinner to make tonight, this one’s a winner for summer meals. Print Spicy Asian Slaw Author: Angela @ Canned-Time.com Recipe type: Side or Salad Cuisine: Asian   Ingredients 1 10 oz. bag of shredded cabbage 1 12 oz. bag of broccoli slaw (or a slaw mix) Juice of 1 lime 1 Cup Vegan Salad Dressing ( I used Earth Balance ‘Mindful Mayo’) 1…

Kathy Hester’s Sloppy Buffalo Beans

Kathy Hester’s Sloppy Buffalo Beans

   I never would have thought to use beans to substitute for beef in a Sloppy Joe.  So glad the Kathy Hester did think of it because it’s simply delicious and simply healthy.  Her new book, “ The Great Vegan Bean Book” is so chock full of interesting and exciting ideas for incorporating beans into your meals.  I knew it would have great bean recipes.  I didn’t expect to be captivated with all Kathy’s unique ideas for substituting beans for traditional ingredients in so many dishes.  She really has a knack for creating delicious recipes without lots of work, time or expense.  Love this book! I’ve kept Kathy’s book beside my bed for over a week now and keep scheming in my head which recipes to try first.  I finally decided that her ‘Sloppy Buffalo Beans’ would be my first and what a delicious first it turned out to be….. The spicy, hearty taste of the Kidney beans cried out for a sweet slaw.  It’s a somewhat Southern tradition to add slaw right on top of your sandwich that you may not have ever tried before.  Try it.  The creamy sweet slaw cuts a little of the heat from the…
