Talk about Healthy

Ok, I was skeptical at first mainly because of how much water is in each of these veggies and to try and make it firm enough to be grilled…well I was graciously surprised! This is my new favorite lunch! Especially on the days, I need to feel full through the afternoon munchies. This, in fact, will do the trick plus amazing flavor! You just feel good after eating it too!

How to Make

Ingredients: Makes 2

  • 2 Zucchini grated or cucumber
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Cassava Flour
  • 1 tbsp of Nutritional Yeast (amazing on popcorn)
  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup of grated cheese or more as I love cheese. (cheddar, smokey cheddar, provolone, or cauliflower cheese are wonderful)
  • Your favorite herbs, thyme, dill, basil, paprika…
  • 1 tbsp Avacado oil
I like using glass when I cook for mixing. Easy pour spout helps too.
This one is the Zucchini can you tell it’s thicker more binding?

Directions:

  1. Mix beaten eggs, grated zucchini/cucumber, and flour. Add your Nutritional Yeast and sea salt and herbs of your choice. Mix well.
  2. Put avocado oil into cast iron pan…my favorite pan…and get hot.
  3. Put a little bit of the mixture into a pan and spread out into a rectangle. Have fun…this can be tricky with the cucumber. Zucchini is easier.
  4. Let cook until they have brown edges and firm. Flip and cook the other side. Do the same to the other half. When last part is done, place grated cheese on top and the other top like an old fashioned grilled cheese. Cook until cheese is melted.
  5. Serve with fresh fruit.
Pour for only one side of sandwich.
Spread into a rectangle shape or whatever shape you want
Before flipping over after edges are brown, I added my fresh herbs. You can mix into the batter too.

Zucchini again a little thicker
The second one is done so now add grated cheese and place other done half onto cheese and cook until cheese melts.

Enjoy and Comment

I hope you try this amazing sandwich! It will knock your socks off with freshness and make you feel healthy too instead of too full. It is one sandwhich you will most likely have to eat with a fork, but oh well! It’s worth it!

Love deeper, talk sweeter, keep it natural,

Side dishes are hard for me. I don’t like the starch and added calories, but sometimes it fits the dish. So when I decide to do a side dish I love the ol’ Fettuccine Alfredo and popping in the ranch flavors of herbs we love as well! I did take out the cream that is often put into the sauce, and it takes awesome just knowing it’s not in there and taste great! When you can, try and use fresh ingredients. It gets hard for us not only living in Minnesota and not having fresh produce all year round, but we also live over 30 minutes from town. So when I can, I freeze my herbs when I grow them in the summer.  I will do the same with fruit like peaches, and berries. We love to eat fresh all year round so we have to can or freeze to have those special flavors. Here is what you need:1 pound of Fettuccine Noodles 2 cups of Almond Milk 1/2 cup of Almond Milk Creamer, Vanilla or Hazelnut 2 cloves garlic, chopped 1 stick of butter, unsalted 1 1/2 cup of Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese Fresh Basil Fresh Parsley Salt and Pepper to taste Ramekins Cups Directions: 1) Fill a large pot with water and add some sea salt. 2) Once it comes to a boil, drop in your fettuccine. Cook for 6-9 minutes. You want them a little al dente. Tender, but still firm. 3) While the noodles are cooking begin your sauce. In a saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. 4) Add your milk and creamer and continue to stir. 5) While stirring add your parmesan cheese, basil, and parsley. Continue stirring until slightly thicker. 6) Add your salt and pepper to taste, keep warm while you plate the noodles. Your sauce will get thicker while it sits for a few minutes. When you don’t use real cream, the thickening is different, but tastes amazing! My hubby didn’t even notice! I added fresh basil which is just a must! Add more cheese on top with more basil if you like! SO yummy and healthier than other recipes! Enjoy and God’s blessing upon you today! Love deeper, talk sweeter, Lee
