COCONUT CHICK'N AND RICE

CHEF HEATHY’S COCONUT CHICK’N & “RICE”

Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!

Cauliflower Mash with Mushroom Gravy

CAULIFLOWER MASH & MUSHROOM GRAVY

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, and it was abundant at the farmers’ market today. So, I picked up a big, beautiful head to whip up my mash for dinner. Cauliflower comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. This is my version of mashed potatoes. Cauliflower has a kick to it, which I love.

CARAMEL APPLESAUCE

CARAMEL APPLESAUCE

Apples are a universal food, a favorite at any age and of virtually every species. No wonder kids love them! And raw applesauce is one food that is not only ten times healthier than it’s cooked counterpart, but it is ten times faster to make. Bonus! It is totally addictive, so consider yourself warned!

BBQ MEAT(LESS) BALLS

BBQ MEAT(LESS) BALLS

I have some amazing childhood memories and although I lost both my parents at a very young age, the years we did have together have shaped and formed the woman that I am today. Coming from an Italian family, the kitchen was where all the action was! One very fond memory of my father was his addiction to meat balls!! I’m not kidding, the man LOVED meat balls! My mother would spend many hours in the kitchen trying to come up with new and inventive ways to serve him up his favorite – with a new twist of course!
