Almond Butter and Jelly Sandwich

I came up with the idea of this sandwich when I was at a Culinary conference workshop on how to present a recipe on television.  The producer asked us to teach how to make a PB&J sandwich in 2 minutes, using our own ideas and point of view.

Since Garen of Eydie is all about elevating the nutritional content of our recipes, and making it elegant to eat, I came up with this idea to make an elegant hors d’oeuvre.  Using almond butter, no oil or salt, and a quick homemade strawberry balsamic jelly, the old fashioned PB&J turned into an adult amuse bouche! It’s a great way to make PB&J healthier and delicious for the kids too! 


Creamy Yellow Tomato Corn Soup with Basil Cream

When my garden gifts me beautiful yellow tomatoes, it’s time to create something delicious to highlight them.  This yellow tomato corn soup tastes of the bounty of summer, perfect to serve as an appetizer or entree.  Corn is pureed and pressed to remove the juice, then simmered for about 1 minute making a sweet corn cream!  Adults and kids alike will love it!


Dapple Cookie Sandwich, Please!

Garden of Eydie is always imagining a world filled with the most delicious, fun, and health promoting meals and snacks. Boy oh boy do these no-bake snacks have it all.  I call them Dapples because they are made with dates and apples and it’s a name kids will love and adore – and ask for more and more!  

Dates are amazing for the digestive system, great for a better night’s sleep, ideal for diabetes as they deliver vital glucose to the liver.  They’re high potassium to refuel the brain and muscles for super active people!  Apples are anti-inflammatory.  A true brain food, colon cleanser, and so much more.  Oats are grain free and super satisfying!


Vegan Sushi Rolls with Asian Dipping Sauce

Developing recipes is a lot of fun. I get ideas from all different sources.  Whether it be from cookbooks, doctors, famous chefs, cooking shows, or just in my mind, there is no shortage of inspiration! This time I received an idea from “spirit!”…i.e., Medical Medium’s “download!”  He uses dates and cauliflower rice for one of his salads.  I tweaked the recipe to make it a “sticky” cauliflower rice for this sushi recipe.  The sweetness, not to mention the healthy benefits, will make you and your kids super happy! 


BBQ Pinto Mini Tacos with Cabbage slaw

Who doesn’t love easy to eat “pick up” food!  Whether it’s for a kids lunch, or delicious appetizer/hors d’oeuvre for a party, these little tacos are sure to please everyone’s palate. Or you can make them large for an entree!  So many options. 

PS:  You can make your own fresh corn tortillas, or of course, use store-bought.
