Reminiscent of tabouli, this bright, light wrap filling is delicious as a side salad on its own, or wrapped in lettuce leaves.
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon fresh mint
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch radishes
½ pound jicama
1 large avocado
8 kalamata olives
Toast pumpkin seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Finely chop mint, parsley and radishes. Peel and finely chop jicama. Seed and dice cucumber. Peel, pit and dice avocado. Pin and mince olives. Juice lemon.
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
½ teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and salt.
1 teaspoon cumin
⅓ cup goat cheese crumbles (optional)
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine pumpkin seeds, cumin, cheese, veggies, olives and mint in a large bowl, mix well. Toss with dressing. Let sit 15 minutes or more prior to serving.
Romaine or another lettuce
Spoon jicama mixture into lettuce leaves and roll.
Preparation: 20 minutes active, plus 15 minutes to set
I like eggs and the protein they provide
1 large shallot
1 tablespoon cilantro or parsley
1½ cups shiitake or other mushrooms
2 cups fresh spinach
3–4 medium red potatoes
Finely chop shallot and cilantro or parsley. Coarsely chop mushrooms and spinach. Thinly slice potatoes.
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons vegetable or chicken broth
Beat together eggs, cheese, turmeric, and salt. Set aside.
In large skillet, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil and broth over medium low heat. Add shallot, and stir often until soft (3–5 minutes). Add mushrooms and sauté until tender (3–5 minutes). Stir in spinach and cilantro and sauté 2 minutes, and then add mixture to egg mixture.
In large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat, fully coating bottom of skillet. Spread red potatoes over bottom of skillet in one or two thin layers and cook 5 minutes over medium heat. Pour egg and vegetable mixture over potatoes; turn heat down to low medium, and cover. Cook about 20 minutes, periodically checking to see if eggs are firm.
When done, run rubber spatula around edge of frittata, cut in wedges, and serve.
Preparation: 45 minutes
