A Bit of This and That
* 2 cups walnuts, soaked 8 to 12 hours
I zapped some tomatoes into small chunks in my food processor and then added olive oil, fresh basil, lemon juice, a bit of minced garlic, and sea salt. Easy peasy.
...aaaand switching back to the sweet side of things again - Chocolate is IN folks! But not just any chocolate - I'm talking about the kind that's good for you...pure cacao with only the best and most natural ingredients added to make it a tasty treat. This recipe comes from my friend Carmella in her latest post "For The Love of Chocolate" . Naturally, I had to give these goodies a try - except that I didn't have some of the ingredients (young coconut, hazelnuts) on hand, so I had to settle for making only one item the other day: Carmi's Fruit and Nut Chocolates. Mmmm, these are delish! I made one huge chocolate bar and then sliced into smaller bars/sticks.
Spread mixture on plate or pan lined with parchment paper and set in the fridge or freezer. You can score the chocolate with a cookie or pizza cutter after a few minutes or break into pieces once fully set.
