Pomegranate juice is very high in antioxidants, and has been shown to be even higher amounts of antioxidants than green tea and red wine. This makes it a healthy addition to smoothies. In this smoothie recipe, I use fresh peach slices, banana, oats and pomegranate juice. Adding juice to smoothies boosts the sugar content, so I like to dilute the juice 50:50 with water. Peach Banana and Pomegranate Smoothie Ingredients 1/2 cup pomegranate juice 1 banana 1 peach, pitted and […]

Once it is ready to add in, everything blends together nicely in the Magic Bullet […]

Making homemade fries is always so much fun. Why not switch it up and make fries with another vegetable other than potatoes? One of my favorite non-potato fries recipe is made with parsnip. They become soft and tender in the oven after baking and crispy on the edges, and the flavor is very unique. I first prepare an herb, garlic and olive oil mixture in the Magic Bullet and then toss the thinly sliced parsnip with it in a mixing […]

Saag paneer is a popular Indian dish made with spinach and cubed paneer cheese, and in this vegan version tofu is used instead of cheese. The tofu cubes are tossed in turmeric and fried until crispy, then mixed in with the spiced spinach mixture. Instead of yogurt, coconut milk is used to thicken it up a bit. Serve this flavorful dish by itself as a main, or as a side. It goes great with naan bread! Vegan Saag Paneer Recipe […]

This lemon basil fish marinade recipe is a product of me having too much basil. Whenever I buy a basil plant, it seems to grow like crazy and I can never keep up with the amount of basil it produces. It turns out, basil is a super flavorful addition to marinades, like this fish marinade. I haven’t tried it with any other fish other than tilapia, so I don’t know how well it goes with other types of fish. Let […]
