Dinner & Dessert: Almond Pad Thai & Cranberry Chocolate Truffles

Posted on January 29, 2013 by Kyleen Keenan | 0 Comments

I began my adventures with gluten free by chance. I had a roommate who had celiac disease and I LOVED her creations. She always cooked with a lot of veggies, different grains and beans, and a what I loved most, her collection of nuts - almond, macadamia, peanut, and seeds - chia, flax, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, etc. She kept it simple, went to the "feria" or farmers market once a week, got her veggies and then prepared them with her wild array of grains, beans, nuts and seeds. This was not only super healthy but was smart budgeting! Quickly, my other roommate and I caught on and started our own adventures in this type of cooking without really even the intention of cooking gluten free. 

When I met Bennett, I was introduced me to the world of integrative nutrition where I learned simple things like how to make a superfood smoothie, how to cook kale & collard greens, and how delicious coconut oil is with...everything.

Tonight's dish is an inspiration from them both. I hope you enjoy!

Almond Pad Thai with rice noodles and Macadamia nuts

Ingredients:

  • Rice noodles
  • carrots
  • spinach (or any type of green you want)
  • Chopped fennel
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • shallots
  • garbanzo beans
  • assortment of seeds: flax, sesame, chia
  • two tablespoons Almond butter
  • Roasted salted macadamia nuts 
  • coconut oil
  • two tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar

Saute garlic and ginger in coconut oil. Add shallots. Cook until transparent, add fennel. Add garbanzo beans and carrots. Add spinach last.

Boil water, add rice noodles. Cook and drain. Rinse with cool water.

In a small bowl or cup mix almond butter, soy sauce, miso, brown rice vinegar and a dash of water together.

Superfood Ice Cold Chocolate Latte

This is our favorite treat on a hot day! This drink contains antioxidant rich raw cacao, and also superfood lucuma, which is high in beta carotene and B vitamins to boost your brain power - perfect for an afternoon pick me up. It also contains mesquite which is a source of protein and calcium for bone health. Make a batch and keep in the fridge to enjoy this superfood treat at your leisure.

Ice Cold Chocolate Latte made with Be Cozy and Hemp Milk

Ingredients:

4 tsp Be Cozy (per 8 oz milk)

8 ounces of your favorite milk (we love it with Hemp Milk!)

Directions:

Heat up half the amount of hemp milk just so it is warm enough to melt the Be Cozy mix. Add the Be Cozy and stir until all chocolate its melted. Add the cold milk. When serving, pour over ice. 

To make the mix thicker, stick it in the fridge for a couple hours. 

Add other superfoods if you wish!
