Here are some of my favorite ‘go-to’ recipes that are easy, healthy and tasty. I like simple recipes.
Garlic Pumpkin or Butternut Squash
2 cups Pumpkin or Squash
3 – 4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. water
Purchase a deep orange color pumpkin (Jamaican) or squash. Remove seeds and wash thoroughly. It is not necessary to remove the skin, just scrub with a vegetable brush. Cut in small cubes; also slice garlic in small slivers. Place olive oil in a pot over medium heat. When oil shimmers, place garlic in oil, stir, cover pot and remove from heat. Allow garlic to sweat until flavors combine. Place pumpkin or squash in the oil and garlic mixture, sprinkle salt and black pepper then stir. Add water and simmer until soft.
NB. Pumpkin or squash produces its own fluid while cooking; however, add more water if needed – a spoon at a time.
Salad Dressing (basic recipe)
1 c Basil
1 clove garlic
¼ c lemon juice (fresh)
1 tsp lemon zest
¼ tsp sea salt
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp. apple juice
Blend all ingredients for a few seconds. Then add ¼ olive oil.
