With honey, vanilla, cinnamon and raisins.
Originally, this was going to be a recipe from Practical Paleo, but then I realized that I was missing some very key ingredients like tahini and coconut, and I had an extra ingredient: pecans.
I used that recipe as the inspiration for this one and it was lovely.
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Cinnamon to taste
- 1/4 cup pecans, pulverized
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup raisins
- Honey to taste
Are you ready for the hard part? Put it all in a pot, mix it up, then heat to your desired temperature. Easy as that!
Here, I garnished it with a whole pecan, a cluster of raisins, and a swirl of honey.
So, WW is super diligent about watching out for copyright infringement, so I can’t post the whole recipe or directions here, but in the book I bought there’s a recipe for Grilled Fish with Mango Salsa. There are 6 ingredients and the prep time is probably around 15-20 minutes. I wasn’t in the mood to de-vein jalapeños or deal with slimy mangoes (especially in winter?) so I cheated a little bit. Here’s the condensed version of WW Grilled Fish with Mango Salsa:
1- bowl of fruit salsa from your local deli
2- fillets of cod (skin removed)
little bit of lemon juice, plus salt and pepper to taste.
Unwrap fish from the paper it comes in, place in a skillet over medium heat. Drizzle with a little bit of lemon, salt, and pepper. Depending on the thickness of your fillet, it’ll be ready to flip around 3-5 minutes. Apply the same techniques to this side – lemon, salt, pepper as desired. This will be done in about 3-5 minutes as well. The fish will be done when it can be flaked with a fork and is no longer translucent. Don’t over-cook the fish or it’ll get rubbery.
Top with spoonfuls of the prepared salsa and enjoy 🙂
Total time – 10 minutes.
The other night, Jeff and I tried out a new recipe from Jamie Oliver. This crunchy garlic chicken recipe was great!! We got the idea from pinterest and served it with baked potatoes and honey crisp apples.
The breading has just the right mix of flavors… Butter, parsley, lemon, salt and pepper. When lightly fried, it tastes absolutely decadent. Go make it. 🙂
