Here’s a simple recipe for browned white beans. Make these as a side dish, or serve them over grains with a dollop of yogurt for a light, healthy main course. I like making these with a large variety of white bean, such as the gigante or large butter bean, because they’re easy to flip so you can brown both sides. The beans should be mostly dry when you’re ready to start cooking.tags: sides beans sauté more
Here’s a “firecracker” you can eat! Pop these creamy Cherry Tomato Bomb appetizers into your mouth in a single bite and enjoy the fireworks. Avocados are a good way to get more lutein in the diet and act as a “nutrient booster” by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit. This recipe provides 136 IU of lutein, a natural antioxidant concentrated in the macula of the eye, which research suggests may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age.
Serving Suggestion: If you have extra cream cheese and avocado, mix them together and add some Sriracha. Enjoy on pepper strips or crackers.
