Basil Dill Veggie Dip
8 oz, of Plain Hummus
1/4 cup chopped fresh Basil
1 tsp. Mountain Rose Herbs (Garlic & Herb Seasoning)
Organic garlic & herb seasoning is a delicious salt-free addition to your spice cabinet offering pungent garlic and herbal aromatics. The substantial pieces of minced garlic add a spicy kick to any dish with outstanding texture and flavor. Matched with flavorful oregano, thyme, and parsley this blend can add an Italian or Middle Eastern flair.
1/2 tsp. minced Garlic
Sprinkle top with Pepper
You can either make your own Hummus, which I am not going to get into here, or you can buy a plain variety. I like Baba Hummus. It is easier to start with hummus that is pre-made, and you can dress it up quite a bit with a few other ingredients. In a small bowl mix the fresh Basil, the Mountain Rose Herbs Garlic & Herb Seasonings and the minced garlic. Finish by sprinkling the Pepper on top and serve with your favorite vegetables.
Veggie Lasagna with Oregano
One box of any easy bake Lasagna noodle. (I am gluten free now and no longer make this particular recipe, but it is an oldie but goodie. One of my favorites. You could substitute the wheat noodles for gluten free lasagna noodles, if you are gluten free like me.)
1 Jar Tomato sauce
1 lb. Hamburger
1 Diced onion
2 Cloves garlic
7-8 Mushrooms sliced
1 Cup shredded zucchini
½ Cup diced pepper
1 8 oz. Container Ricotta cheese
1 16 oz. Package mozzarella cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese
½ Cup chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. Dried oregano, or 1 T. fresh oregano
Sea Salt and Pepper
In a saucepan, brown your hamburger; when almost finished add your diced onion, garlic, mushrooms and pepper. Sauté for a few extra minutes. Next add your tomato sauce and simmer about 4-5 minutes. Meanwhile mix all your cheeses, your egg, parsley, zucchini and oregano oil in a bowl. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.
In your baking dish spoon about a cup of your sauce mixture. Then begin a layer of lasagna noodles. Layer your ricotta cheese mixture and more sauce. Put another row of lasagna noodles, then any remaining ricotta and more sauce. Sprinkle some extra parmesan on top and bake at 400 degrees until bubbly.
Salmon with Lemon
1/3 Cup raw honey
2 tsp. Minced garlic
2 T. Olive oil
2 T. Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Fresh Lemon juice
1 T. Fresh parsley
Sea Salt and Pepper
2- 2 ½ lbs. Wild Caught Salmon
Let this marinade for 1 hour. Then broil at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve with fresh asparagus- lightly broiled and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Grapefruit Cream Cheese Cupcakes
You can use any box mix you like for your cupcakes. I like Lemon poppy seed. Of course, you may make your own from scratch. The premix I have linked, does not include poppy seeds. If you want to add them, you will have to do so separately.
Follow the bag/ box recipe for the batter.
2 drops of Young Living Grapefruit Vitality oil into the cupcake batter mix. (ONLY USE YL Vitality oils in food).
1 T. poppy seeds to the batter
Continue to pour into cupcake trays and follow baking instructions. Definitely wait until completely cool before icing.
For the icing
8 oz. Cream cheese
¾ Cups Organic powdered sugar
2 T. Maple Syrup
1/2 Cup coconut oil
3 Drops Young Living Grapefruit Essential Oil
(Icing for 24 cupcakes)
Use a blender, or other food processing tool to blend all the icing ingredients, until smooth. You can put into the fridge until the cupcakes are cool enough to ice. This is a refreshing and uplifting cupcake. You could use grapefruit juice (squeezed from the grapefruit) to replace the essential oil.
