Orange Cannellini Beans

26 Apr

Beans are a super healthy and versatile food. I am not huge fan of beans, but luckily my husband is. I try to find ways to eat more beans and this recipe is loaded with flavor and so easy to make. It is best if made in advance and let the flavors soak in. Perfect recipe for the summer.

  • juice and rind of 1 orange
  • 2 15 oz cans of cannellini beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Mix all of the ingredients together and refrigerate for few hours.

Watermelon “Pizza”

11 Apr

When you find something you like, you must recreate it! Well, at least thats my thoughts when I find a dish I find tasty and fascinating. When I saw watermelon pizza on a menu, I complete passed by it because I thought DOUGH! You don’t find dough on this pizza, only healthy tasty ingredients. This makes a great appetizer or a side dish. I love it with smoked salmon or shrimp coctail.

  • watermelon slices
  • pesto
  • sliced almonds
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • arugula
  • balsamic vinaigrette
  • chopped onion (optional)
  • feta cheese (optional)

Toss the aruguala in the vinaigrette. Spread 1 tsp of pesto on each slice of watermelon, add the sliced almonds, tomatoes, arugula and the optional onion and feta cheese.
