Broccolini over Couscous

This Week's Photo


* Garlic Broccolini over Whole Wheat Couscous
* Satsuma Tangerine
* Kimchi (mild or spicy)

Preparation Notes

We picked up some organic broccolini and juicy tangerines at the farmers' market on Saturday. We sauteed the broccolini lightly and placed it on a bed of whole wheat couscous (purchased from the bulk bin section of our local natural foods store) for a simple--yet delicious--main course.

Prepare the broccolini as follows: saute a small amount of olive oil in a skillet. Add minced garlic and heat until just pungent. Add the broccoli and stir-fry until tender and deep green. Add some canned chickpeas and stir to heat through. Sprinkle with a few drops of soy sauce or tamari (optional).

Cook the couscous per the instructions on the package or bulk bin label.

Add a satsuma tangerine.

Spoon some kimchi into a medium lidded container.

Spinach Ravioli with Marinara Sauce

This Week's Photo


* Garlic Bread
* Spinach Ravioli with Marinara Sauce
* Pineapple Guavas
* Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Preparation Notes

Pineapple guavas are a wonderful treat this time of year. We packed a few with some fresh ravioli purchased at the farmers' market, some crispy garlic bread, and sauteed Brussels sprouts for a very yummy treat.

Prepare the garlic bread using 100% extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, and fresh chopped parsley.

Boil the ravioli and top with marinara sauce.

Slice the pineapple guavas in half.

Saute the Brussels sprouts in a small amount of olive oil, and toss with dried cranberries, chopped pecans (optional), salt, pepper, and dried thyme. (Substitute cabbage for the Brussels sprouts if you prefer.)
