  • Chickpea "Meatballs" | cureativenutrition

    Back Chickpea "Meatballs" Makes approx. 8 large meatballs INGREDIENTS: 1 spaghetti squash 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1/4 cup rolled oats 2 tablespoons hemp seeds 2 tablespoons minced rosemary 1 large garlic clove, minced 1 shallot, minced 2 eggs, beaten 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1 teaspoon cumin Salt and pepper to taste Tomato-basil sauce (or other marinara of your choice) DIRECTIONS: 1. Poke holes in squash with sharp knife and roast the whole squash directly on the rack in the oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. ​ 2. Combine remaining ingredients, minus marinara, into food processor and process until smooth. Transfer mixture to bowl and chill in refrigerator for 2 hours. ​ 3. Remove and form mixture into balls, whatever size your prefer. We were able to get 8 medium size balls out of one batch. ​ 4. Heat olive oil in non-stick, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add the balls and cook, rotating occasionally so that they all get cooked and browned evenly. Once they are brown all around, transfer skillet to oven at 375 degrees and let cook until cooked through, about 8 minutes (or less if you would like them to be more on the moist side). Be careful not to overcook and let them get too dry. **Enjoy over spaghetti squash with marinara and shaved Parmesan cheese.

  • Cucumber Rollups | cureativenutrition

    Back Cucumber Rollups with Roasted Red Peppers, Cream Cheese & Almond Pesto INGREDIENTS: ​ For the pesto: 1/2 cup whole, raw almonds, soaked in filtered water for at least 4 hours and drained 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese 1 garlic clove, minced 1/2 sprig rosemary, minced 1 bunch basil leaves 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for desired consistency 1 pinch ground black pepper and 1 pinch salt For the rollups: 2 ounces cream cheese, thinly sliced 1 red pepper, roasted and thinly sliced -----> Almond pesto (see above), or any pesto will work 2 medium-large cucumbers, peeled Toothpicks DIRECTIONS: ​ For the pesto: 1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until desired consistency is achieved. If the blender is having trouble processing it, you may need to add more olive oil. For the rollups: 1. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the skin off the cucumbers. Then peel the cucumber flesh into long thick strips. Stop peeling when you start to see the seeds. Save middle part of the cucumber with seeds for a snack later. Place strips in between two paper towels and press to remove excess moisture. ​ 2. Arrange strips so that they are overlapping each other slightly to make a wide roll, about 4 strips wide (see picture). Layer the cream cheese, roasted red pepper and pesto. Using a knife, fold the rollup over once over the filling, then using your hands tuck the ends under the filling and roll tightly. Secure with a toothpick and transfer to a plate.
