Guilty pleasure = Pillsbury crescent rolls. Every once in a while I have the biggest craving for these rolls and nothing pairs better with them than some good eye round roast beef with some nutrient packed green chard.
Ingredients: Marinade eye round roast beef overnight in Marsala wine, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice from 1 whole lemon, green onion, fresh garlic, Pink Himalayan sea salt, black pepper, fresh oregano (in some markets, you will see dried branches of oregano, this is the best kind and the most flavorful).
Ingredients: Green chard with extra virgin olive oil, and The Grange honey mustard.
Sometimes I just need a break from meat/fish. If you can relate, this is the meal for you! My MVP ingredient I used here was the fresh turmeric I bought from Versailles Farms (it was literally picked out of the ground that morning!)
Ingredients: Turmeric, Terra Nova breadcrumbs, sea salt, extra virgin olive oil, grape seed oil, cauliflower (partially cooked in steam, then finished off in a skillet).
Lentil Chili: Goya pink beans, lentils, canned diced tomatoes, garlic, red peppers, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, smoked sea salt, smoked paprika, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, cilantro.
Ingredients: Shrimp coated with salt and pepper seared in grape seed oil. In another pan, sear garlic and white onion. Later on, add the eggplant and a few drops of soy sauce. Top with sesame seeds and green onion.
Get ready for this mouthwatering description of this dinner I made. I could have finished a whole entire second plate if I had one.
