Sprouted Wild Rice with Corn and Tomato

A recipe for wild rice, which is actually an aquatic seed, rather than a grain. Toss together wild rice, tomato, cilantro, corn, garlic, and jalapeno.

Cauliflower Mash + Mushroom Gravy

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables. It's beautiful, comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. This is my version of mashed potatoes. Serve with a gravy on it's own, or alongside your favorite recipe.

Simple Rosemary Oregano Noodle Salad

Here's a super fast and easy recipe I made the other day when I had very little time to eat, but needed a break from my computer for a few short minutes. I didn't feel like a green salad, and wanted something a bit more substantial.

Arame & Sugar Snap Pea Salad

For Dogs: Kanga’s Sweet Potato Treats

I made a batch of Kanga Dog Treats for my Rhodesian Ridgeback canine companion. She loves these, and asked me to share the recipe with you here on my blog so other dogs could also enjoy these treats.

It’s important to keep your dog’s gums and teeth healthy, especially if they aren’t crunching on dry kibble. These easy to make, crunchy treats will help remove plaque and freshen dog breath.

Your dog may not be used to these at first. Just like other new foods, you may need to teach pooch how to eat them by taking a bite out of one first, then giving it to pooch to try. Dogs always love what they see us eating. Especially when accompanied by yummy, delicious sounds.

Kanga is a dessert dog. She hates water and baths. She was rewarded after her lavender bath today with these treats, and was very happy.

I realize this is a recipe section where I list food for people. The good thing about raw food is that even treats for dogs could easily be enjoyed by humans. Many times, friends have come over and said “your dog eats better food that I do!” And this is so true, since Kanga eats organic, local, seasonal, and many times stuff that I eat. I joke that she’s my compost bin, eating up all my leftovers.
