3 cups of spinach
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
8 red grapes
juice of 2-3 lemon wedges
1 tsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
extra sliced red pepper for dressing it up and herbs
Process in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Spoon it over Ezekiel bread and enjoy. It is like experiencing a ripe peach for the first time. Oh so heavenly.
We are tidying up on the farm this week. Pulling weeds here, planting there, making sure we are in tip-top shape for inspection because we are to have the great pleasure of having our family over for a visit! So, we will be in a fine frenzy until Sunday at GreenHearts Farm. Where am I going to find the time for all of the cooking, cleaning, farmer's markets, school, sewing, canning and other shenanigans! Oh to be young and have limitless amounts of energy . . .hehe.
I'm going to soak a couple tablespoons of flaxseed so it can come alive again by morning so I can make a banana-flaxseed smoothies or banana pancakes. What's that jingle again--the best part of waking up is flaxseed in a cup---sounds about right.
Here's the recipe for the banana pancakes:
1 rip banana, mashed
2 Tbsp. golden flaxseed, soaked overnight and rinsed
cinnamon and nutmeg
Process in a food processor or blender till smooth. Flatten on a plate. Set plate outside in the sun for 2 hours and then enjoy. This is what I have for second breakfast because I must be part hobbit.
