Cool Summer Dinner Recipe

There are those summer evenings when cooking a hot meal just doesn't jazz me. Last night was one of those evenings. I came up with a fabulous tasting, super easy meal that kept us cool. Give this one a try!

Garbanzo Wrap

Ingredients:
15 ounce can garbanzo beans
lemon
cilantro
olive oil
curry
tomato
cucumber
crunchy sprouts
fresh mint
greek yogurt, plain
leftover cooked grains
spinach or tomato wraps

Preparation:
1. Blend the first 5 ingredients in a food processor.
2. Chop tomato and cuke.
3. Spread the garbanzo puree onto the wrap.
4. Layer on the yogurt, lightly.
5. Add some grains on top. Note: If you don't have leftover grains in the fridge, cook some up! That can happen in the morning, while your house has not heated up yet. I suggest a hearty grain such as wheat berry or barley, but any ol' grain will do.
6. The next layer will be the tomato, cuke, and sprouts. I used radish sprouts, by the way. BUT you can add a million toppings here: purple cabbage, hearty greens, sliced pepper, roasted pine nuts, grated carrots, raisins; any and all combinations will be perfect!
7. As an afterthought, I added a few mint leaves from my garden--this was a brilliant idea!
8. Roll that bad boy up and you've got a high protein, nutrient dense dinner that is light, delicious, and refreshing.

Are you feeling cool?

Green Wave: Real food in Fort Lauderdale

I just have to make this quick post from the Ft. Lauderdale airport to tell you about the most amazing raw burrito I just enjoyed immensely. There's a place in Plantation (suburb of Ft. Lauderdale) called Green Wave, a raw foods, vegan restaurant that serves such yummy food that it's unbelievable!

First of all, it reminds me of California, my home. Secondly, the food is fresh, organic, delicious, and yes, super duper healthful as an added bonus. I don't eat raw/vegan too often, although I like it well enough. I had lunch at Green Wave today--intentionally--to nourish me well before a long flight cross country. I also took a to-go burrito, different than any burrito I've had before and just finished savoring the incredible textures, flavors, and colors with each bite. I board the plane in less than an hour, and I am well-fed, satiated, and am practically vibrating with all the food energy!

Stop by Green Wave next time you're in SoFL. Their contact info is in the above link. It's time to try something different, something real!
