Raw Kale & Radish Pesto with Zucchini Noodles
Are you a fan of KALE?
Can’t say that I have been to date, 😉 in spite of liking almost every other kind of veggie there is!
But this post over at Girl Eats Greens grabbed my attention today, as I browsed the WP Reader.
Looks so yummy and healthy too. 🙂
Happy Eating and Week! G
One of my favorite things about spring turning into summer is all the deliciousness that continues to show up at my local farmer’s market. While I don’t buy all my groceries there, I do spend time every Sunday walking along with my pup and seeing what’s new to the market. What I’ve seen a lot lately? Fiddleheads. I have no idea what to do with them. But I’m dying to try them. I also stumbled upon a bunch of bright red radishes.
Growing up, I was never a fan of radishes, I thought they were too bitter. But as I’m getting older I think a lot of it had to do with the preparation of the radishes. As in, there wasn’t any.

How I LOVE Beets, Let Me Count the Ways! ;-)
I ♥ beets sooooo much! 😉
I think beets are one of the most underrated vegetables in terms of versatility and taste.
Not to mention their health benefits, which are significant too and in a number of ways. It’s not just vitamin C that you’re getting in a serving of beets! You can read about some of the many nutritional pluses of eating beets and beet greens here.
Tonight I’m making a beet pesto with pasta recipe for the first time. Sounds and looks so yummy. It’s a recipe that I found recently in Alive Magazine. I also make a variety of beet salads on a regular basis and of course, my fav soup of all time:
Veggie Beet Borscht (click for the recipe).
Do you like beets and what’s your fav recipe to make with them?
Happy Cooking! :)

I’ve been on a ‘toast kick’ lately and can’t seem to get enough of ‘burnished to perfection, golden NOT brown please’.. LOL!
Decided to ‘bump it up a notch’ yesterday and made a lovely loaf of Quickie Oatmeal Bread and Fresh Blueberry Spread, both recipes from NJFV. Well…..needless to say, between Joe and I and a few hours later, there’s just a crust of the loaf left this morning. Happily still quite a bit of jam though, to enjoy for the next week or two. I’m actually having some right now….crumbs are a gathering on the keys, but no jam so far !! 😉
I am including my quick version for fruit spreads/jams/preserves with this post.
I came up with the idea when I wanted the taste of homemade (yes, there is a big difference from store bought) jam in a big hurry, without all…
