IMG_5761.JPG

1 slice of Ezekiel Low Sodium Bread

1 cup of plain cottage cheese (I love the Muuna brand)

1 tsp of ground flax seed

Sprinkle of fresh ground pepper

Toasted pumpkin seeds

Pinch of sea salt

 

Step 1

Heat your frying pan over a medium heat. Add your pumpkin seeds to your heated pan till your seeds start to turn brown and start popping. Set aside.

Step 2 

While your seeds are browning on your frying pan you can start lightly toasting your bread. Place on a plate when your toast is ready.

Step 3

Scoop out your cottage cheese onto your toast. Sprinkle your fresh ground pepper onto your cottage cheese. Add your toasted pumpkin seeds on top of your cottage cheese. Finish off with a dusting of fresh ground flax seed and some sea salt.

Step 4

Enjoy!

 

 

NJAPP Hash

Ingredients:

  • 1 -2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 Yellow Onion, diced
  • 1-2 Tbsp of Coconut Oil or EVOO
  • 1 Tsp of Kosher Salt
  • ½ tsp of fresh ground pepper

Step 1

First heat your pre-seasoned cast-iron skillet on medium heat and add your oil.

Step 2

Add your onions to the skillet with melted oil, mixing it all together. Cook for about 8 minutes, just enough till they are semi-translucent.

Step 3

Now it is time to mix in your potatoes with your onion party. Occasionally give this hash a mix to prevent too much browning on one side of the potatoes. Make sure you check your flame. You might have to raise or lower it depending on your pan. Cooking time should be about 10-15 minutes. Cook just enough till the potatoes slide off your fork tester and the potatoes and onions start to get that beautiful brown coloring that is packed with taste.  

Step 4

Once your “Hash” is ready, serve alongside anything!

NJAPP Tip: Enjoy with an egg or any type of protein. Either way you can't go wrong with this NJAPP-Hash.

NJAPP Waffles

Makes about 6-8 small round waffles

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of all-purpose organic flour
  • 1 tsp double-acting (Non-GMO) baking flour
  • ¼ tsp of sea salt
  • 2 ½ tbsp of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 cup of organic 1% or whole milk
  • 1 tsp of good vanilla extract
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 2 tbs unsalted butter

Step 1

Preheat your waffle iron. Melt your butter and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir with a whisk.

Step 3

In a separate glass bowl mix the wet ingredients: milk, eggs and vanilla (lightly mix until combined and set aside).

Step 4

Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix with the whisk, stopping when the ingredients are just combined and smooth (Do not over mix).

Step 5

Now it is time to add the melted butter and stir again.

Step 6

Lightly spray your iron with cooking spray. Following your waffle iron directions. Add the batter, close the lid and cook until browned and crisp. Serve your the waffles immediately with maple syrup and fresh berries (I like a heart shaped strawberry for Valentine’s Day).

NJAPP Tip: This recipe can easily be used for pancakes too! I would just double the recipe and freeze the leftovers (if there are any).
