1. Joni's Vegetarian Pizza - I basically took Trader Joe's whole-wheat pizza crust and put my favorite veggies on this! It was amazing!
2. Grilled Vegetable Quesadillas - These quesadillas were fantastic! The mix of goat and cheddar cheeses along with the juice from the fresh vegetables made it one of the best quesadillas I've ever had!
1 small eggplant
1 yellow squash
1 green zucchini
1/2 red onion
2 bell peppers (1 red, 1 yellow)
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1 tsp cumin
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
1 bunch fresh cilantro
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
4 whole-wheat tortilla shells
Heat a non-stick pan brushed with olive oil on medium heat
Cut all vegetables into small pieces
Toss with olive oil, chili flakes, cumin, salt & pepper and cilantro sprigs into a bowl
Toss in the frying pan in batches to sear and soften
Place in a mixing bowl and crumble goat's cheese over mixture when cool
Scoop out mixture into tortilla shell and spread cheddar cheese on top
Fold in half and brush with olive oil
Place quesadilla into frying pan and cook until crispy, turn over and cook until cheese is melted
Serve and enjoy!
3. Lychee Slushy - If you've never tried lychees, you need to. I first tried them in alcoholic beverages when I was living overseas and have since grown to love the tasty fruit-like berry things that they are!
1 can of lychees in syrup
Remove lychees from can and put in plastic container or re-sealable bag
Thaw them out for approximately 10 minutes before serving
Throw the lychees in the blender and blend until slushy
Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve!
