"Ice Cream"
provided by Sheri Noble
     print recipe >>

When bananas become too ripe, cut them in small chunks and freeze.  Whenever you want “ice cream,” place frozen banana chunks into a blender with a small amount of cow, almond, oat, hazelnut or hemp milk.  Our favorite is vanilla hemp milk.  Blend well (usually about 2-3 minutes), scrapping the sides of the blender.  Blend until the consistency resembles ice cream.  Sometimes, I add a little vanilla, chocolate raspberry, or lemon stevia to change the flavor.

Rice/Quinoa Patties

2 cups cooked rice or quinoa
1 cup grated cheese
2 eggs
1-2 cups chopped or grated vegetable (Carrot, zucchini, chard, spinach broccoli, beets, etc…) Pretty much whatever veggie you have works, fresh or left over in fridge.
½ cup nuts or seeds
2 Tbsp. flour
2 tsp. falafel powder (available in bulk bin at Raleys)  or 1 tsp. curry powder
(This is just for flavor- can omit or try seasoning of your choice-try ranch mix.)

Mix all ingredients

Form into patty and lightly fry in olive oil- can cook fully in pan on low until firm and browned – or fry just until they are firm and finish in oven.

My kids love these as a meal or snack. Get creative- I have added bacon and diced chicken, or left over mashed potatoes in place of some of the rice. This is a good way to combine leftovers into a fresh meal, and a good way to get kids to eat veggies and eggs.

Our favorite combination is zucchini (when in season) with quinoa and jack cheese.
