I've really been enjoying the slow pace of summer and making nutritious meals for my family. I've been trying to make a new recipe every day and I'm trying hard to keep those recipes healthy and full of local fresh veggies. So I thought I would share my day in food with you guys.
For breakfast I had banana bread oatmeal.
1/2 c. Irish oats
1 c. water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp agave nectar
7 walnut halves
In a bowl combine oats, water, agave, cinnamon and nutmeg heat in microwave for 3 minutes. Stir in sliced banana and walnuts
For lunch I had a homemade veggie burger with some shreds of local cheddar cheese on it.
2 cooked red potatoes
1/2 c. black beans
1/2 c. irish oats
1/4 c. shredded zucchini
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 clove garlic
seasonings to taste ( I like McCormick Hickory Maple)
sometimes I add a little egg if the mixture doesn't want to stick together
Puree all ingredients in food processor until no large lumps are visible. It will be like a paste. Spread four equal size portions into burger shapes in a hot greased pan. Cook until firm and brown.
For dinner we had 'Disappearing Zucchini Orzo' from "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle"
Finally this is what dessert has been looking like in our house these days.
