Watermelon Margherita Pizza

It’s National Watermelon Day and most people on the web make a beautiful watermelon pizza with coconut cream sauce and lots of berries on top.  I love Trompe l’oeil (a visual illusion in art).  So I wanted to make this raw fruit pizza look like a real Margherita pizza.  We used mashed banana for the crust, blended strawberries for the tomato sauce, whipped coconut cream for the mozzarella cheese and mint.  Easy to make and such a delightful surprise for your guests! 


Blood Orange Salad with Young Basil and Microgreens

Blood oranges are like the sunset to me!  The colors go from bright orange, to reddish orange and then to a super dark red color…sometimes all in the same orange!  The dark flesh color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, a family of polyphenol pigments, usually uncommon in citrus fruits.  Anthocyanins are anti-inflammatory and help prevent cancer, bacterial infections, diabetes and reduce the risk of heart disease.

This not only is a super healthy age defying salad with the addition of sprouts (here we used broccoli sprouts), it is so easy and quick to make!  Both delicious and refreshing– a perfect summer party salad, for sure; one you’ll crave again and again!  


Gazpacho with Quinoa Croutons

Gazpacho is a super energizing and refreshing first course on a warm summer day. It originated from Andalusia, southern Spain where day laborers working in vineyards, olive plantations, citrus groves, & wheat fields were given rations of bread and oil for their meals. Bread soaked in water made a simple soup, to which oil, garlic &  salt were added for flavor, plus whatever fresh vegetables were available–usually, tomatoes, peppers & cucumbers. This soup helped increase the energy for the workers in the hot sun. Garden of Eydie changed the recipe to increase the nutrient density of the foods and made it even more delicious than the original.

We replaced the processed bread with white quinoa, which has a delicate taste and is chewier, like bread, compared to the other varieties of quinoa. We cooked the white quinoa and added it to the soup instead of bread, and WOW!  the texture is even lighter and more interesting than soaked bread! We also created amazingly delicious Quinoa bread croutons for garnish amongst freshly cut colorful tomatoes, and voila, Garden of Eydie healthier and even more delicious Gazpacho was born!


Heartbeet Curried Cauliflower Soup

This warming and fragrant soup is just perfect to serve to the ones you love.  I made it for my Ed on Valentines day. Adorned with red “beet” hearts brought a big smile to his face; he leaned over and gave me a sweet kiss!  It works every time!


Hawaiian Cucumber Noodle Salad with Romesco Sauce

I love cucumber salad.  It is so refreshing and alkalizing, but not very filling.  I also love the taste of Romseco Sauce.  Smokey, tart, sweet and spicy – it satisfies all of our taste sensations.  Romesco is a tomato-based sauce that originates from Catalonia. Fishermen made it to be eaten with fish.  Garden of Eydie came up with this “match made in heaven” using this delicious and satisfying Catalan sauce with cucumber noodles! We add a bit of an Indonesian twist to this dish adding just a hint of toasted coconut. Your taste buds will love you!
