Sorry I haven’t been writing as much. I have been busy looking for a part time job and hanging with friends. I am going to try my best to test some more recipes and write more often in the weeks to come.
Coconut Flour Donuts
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease donut or muffin pan. In a large bowl whisk the oil, sugar, salt vanilla extract and eggs. Once the ingredients are mixed add the milk and mix well. In a small mix the flour and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Pour the mixture into the donut or muffin pan, 3/4ths the way full. Bake for 10-15 minutes in the donut pan, or until it is golden brown around the edges. 18-20 minutes in the muffin pan.
Today I made Moringa Cashew Dressing. It is a great alternative to processed salad dressing that you can purchase in store and you probably have many of the ingredients already in your pantry. This dressing is creamy and healthy! Not only does it have many health benefits like, anti -aging and immune boosting, but also it tastes great and brings color to your table.
This recipe is a similar to Nutrition Stripped‘s turmeric dressing recipe.
Moringa Cashew Dressing
1/2 cup cashew butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Me Moringa Powder
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoon water (you can add more or less depending on the consistency you want)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
This recipe is very easy and you can use a variety of vegetables! I used beets, potatoes and sweet potatoes.
5 potatoes or vegetable of choice
2 tbsp olive oil (or oil of choice)
1 tbsp salt
Seasoning of choice
Slice vegetables thin and place in a bowl and add oil, salt and seasoning of choice. I used garlic powder and pepper. Place in air fryer and cook for 20 minutes or until they are hard like chips. Make sure to shake the basket every 5-10 minutes. Take them out of air fryer and toss with salt and seasoning.
Air frying is my new favorite way to cook! here is a low fat fry recipe to cure your craving on fry-day.
Air Fried Fries
5 Russet Potatoes
2 tbsp oil of choice
2 tsp of salt
2 tsp ME Moringa moringa and Province Herb Blend
Scrub potatoes and pat dry. Slice into strips and put in a bowl. Add the oil and salt and mix until the potatoes are evenly coated. Put in air frier for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. Shake occasionally to make sure they are evenly fried. Once the 40 minutes is up, sprinkle the moringa seasoning on the fries.
This recipe is easy and nutritious! The moringa packs these little gummies with antioxidants and Vitamin C, while the fruit juice you use packs it with many different nutrients.
1/4 cup gelatin powder
2 tbsp honey (optional)
1 cup fruit juice ( I used organic pineapple coconut juice)
1/2 tsp Me Moringa powder
In a small pot place fruit juice and honey. Heat it over low heat until it starts to simmer. Sprinkle the gelatin over the fruit mixture while whisking. Continue to do so until the mixture is smooth. Whisk the moringa powder in at the end.
As soon as the gelatin and moringa is mixed in, pour into molds and place in refrigerator or freezer until they harden.
I bought an air fryer this week and I am so excited about it! It is easy to use and easy to clean! It cooks the items by circulating hot air around the food. It creates a crispy layer, similar to frying food. It is much healthier than frying, since you can use little to no oil.
Air Fried Onion Rings
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp milk
Set air fryer to 400 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice the onions into 1/2 inch rings and separate into rings.
Make the egg wash by whisking the eggs and milk in a separate bowl. Put flour in one bowl with salt and pepper. Put the bread crumbs into a different bowl.
Dip an onion ring into the egg wash. Make sure the onion ring is evenly coated. The transfer the onion ring into flour. Evenly coat the onion ring. Dip it back into the egg wash then into the bread crumbs. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all rings are evenly coated with flour and bread crumbs. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Put in air fryer for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
