Two of our favorite recipes are Stuffed Delacata Squash and Best Broccoli Ever

I'm always looking for new, healthy, delicious recipes, so I thought I would share a couple with my readers.

These are not difficult to make and they are incredibly delicious and nutritious.

Enjoy!

Stuffed Delacata Squash

 2 Delicata squash (about 1 pound each)

 2 TBSP extra melted coconut oil

 salt and freshly ground pepper

 

Quinoa Salad Stuffing

 1 cup cooked quinoa

 Shredded parmesan

 chopped parsley

 sliced cabbage

 can of beans (any kind)

 cut up apples

 raisins

 

Quinoa Salad Dressing

 1 1/3 cups extra virgin olive oil

 1/2 cup vinegar (rice vinegar, balsamic or apple cider) With apple cider use less

 4 cloves fresh minced garlic

 1 TBSP honey

 1 tsp. salt

 1-2 heaping TBSP Italian seasoning

1/2-1 tsp. of mustard powder (optional)

 Blend dressing and mix into quinoa mix

 

Directions:

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush the cut sides of the squash with one teaspoon of the olive oil and season the cavities with salt and pepper. Place the squash cut side down on a baking sheet and roast for about 45 minutes, until tender.

 2. Once squash is cooked and tender, stuff cavities with quinoa salad stuffing.

3. Top stuffed squash with fresh grated parmesan cheese and serve hot!

 

Best Broccoli Ever

 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

 

Take 4-5 pounds of broccoli (approx. 2 large bunches), cut into florets (relatively large ones). Dry them thoroughly.

 

Place broccoli on cookie sheet. Toss with coconut oil, salt and pepper. Add 4 garlic cloves that have been peeled and sliced and toss them in.

 

Roast in the oven 20-25 minutes until crsip-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.

 

When it's done, take it out of the oven, zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli, add 1.5 TBSP. more coconut oil, 3 TBSP pine nuts (or walnuts, pecans....your choice), 1/3 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese. Add basil to taste (fresh or not).

 

Bon appetit!
