Goji Berry and Coconut Oatmeal Bake

I have an abundance of goji berries right now.  I accidently grabbed the goji berry bag at the grocery store, instead of the mulberries.  I didn’t notice until I came home and found the exact same bag in my pantry.  So, here’s a Goji Berry and Coconut Oatmeal recipe.  If you don’t have goji berries, substitute any other dried fruit — cranberries, blueberries, diced apricots, or even raisins.

This healthy baked oatmeal smells divine as it bakes up — a perfect comfort food breakfast for a wintry morning.  It’s great for brunch or a crowd of people too, just double the recipe.  Bake it up the night before; then just reheat in the morning.  Or, use it throughout the week, reheating portions as needed.  It’s also great for on-the-go, since they slice easily into squares.

Coconut Curry Kale and Quinoa Salad

Adapted from The Healthiest Meals on Earth by Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S

I like this refreshing take on quinoa and kale.  I find I always end up using plain quinoa as a quick side dish and always serve cooking greens sautéed with garlic.  I’m hoping this dish will inspire me to come up with some other creative uses for quinoa and kale.

Broccoli in Coconut Cashew Sauce

Adapted from 660 Curries by Raghavan Iyer

Here’s another dish from 660 Curries.  The dish in the cookbook calls for using cauliflower, which sounds delicious as well.  It is a bit of a rich dish, with the coconut and the cashew.  Serve on a bed of rice and this dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
