Rustic Strawberry Peach Galette



Ingredients:
Filling

  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, sliced (not frozen)
  • 2 cups (about 300 grams) sliced fresh strawberries (not frozen)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crust

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (190 grams) all-purpose flour (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 115 grams) cold unsalted butter, cubed1
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) ice water, plus more as needed
  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash
  • additional sugar for sprinkling

Filling

  • 2 ripe peaches, peeled, pitted, sliced (not frozen)
  • 2 cups (about 300 grams) sliced fresh strawberries (not frozen)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crust

  • 1 and 1/2 cups (190 grams) all-purpose flour (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 3 Tablespoons (45 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick or 115 grams) cold unsalted butter, cubed1
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) ice water, plus more as needed
  • 1 egg, beaten for egg wash
  • additional sugar for sprinkling

Directions:

  1. Make the filling: Mix the peaches and strawberries together in a medium bowl. Add the sugar and vanilla, tossing well to coat the fruit. Set aside and allow the mixture to soak as you prepare the crust.
  2. Make the crust: Whisk the flour, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl. Using a pastry cutter (or your hands), cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse, pea-sized crumbs. Add 1/4 cup of ice water, stirring with a fork until the flour is moistened. Add up to 2 more Tablespoons of ice water if the dough seems dry. Gently knead the dough a few times in the bowl until it all comes together. Shape the dough into a ball and flatten it into a thick disk, as pictured above. Wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 425°F (190°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle. Trim the rim of the circle to make a clean cut if desired. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Spoon the fruit (not the juices) into the center of the dough, leaving a 2-3 inch border all around, as pictured above. Gently fold the edges of the dough over the fruit, overlapping the dough as necessary. Press gently to seal the edges. Pour most of the reserved juices over the fruit, leaving about 1-2 Tablespoons behind. Too much juice and the dough will become soggy.

CREAMY AVOCADO AND SPINACH PASTA



INGREDIENTS

  • 10 oz spaghetti dry, or fettuccine, I used semolina pasta
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup spinach fresh
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup basil
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 3/4 to 1 cup pasta water
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste


INSTRUCTIONS
Cook pasta: Cook the pasta according to the package instructions.
Make the avocado sauce: Add the rest of the ingredients to your blender and blend until it turns into a smooth sauce. Start with 3/4 cup of pasta water and add more as needed to get the consistency you want.
Assemble: Toss the pasta with the sauce in a bowl and serve immediately. This sauce is best served the day it is made, as it uses avocados which will turn a brownish color.

NOTES
How do I store leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 day, but keep in mind that because of the avocado pesto, it will change color and might turn brownish.
Can I use any other types of nuts: Yes you can, but you will need some sort of nuts in this sauce. You can use pine nuts, walnuts, pistachios or almonds.
Can I add chicken to this: Yes, for sure. Adding some cooked chicken would be a great protein to add to this dish.
Nutrition: Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.

Vegan Eggplant Meatballs



INGREDIENTS

  • 1 chia egg (1 tablespoon chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 1/3 cups white onion, diced
  • 1 rib celery, diced small (about 1/3 cup, optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 unpeeled Italian eggplants, diced into about 1/2-1″ cubes (about 10.5-11 cups diced)*
  • 1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 1/3 cup parsley, chopped and loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup tempeh bacon (homemade or storebought such as Light Life)*
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional but recommended)
  • 1/4-1/3 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2-3/4 cups vegetable broth, as needed

To serve

  • Spaghetti noodles
  • Marinara of choice (or a raw vegan marinara)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the chia egg by mixing the chia seeds and water together in a small bowl, and set aside to thicken for about 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F on convection*. Line 2-3 large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place 1/4 cup vegetable broth or water in a large pan over medium heat. Once heated, add in the onions, garlic, and celery, and cook until translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes (adding more broth as needed to prevent burning). Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. In the same pan, add another 1/2 cup more water or broth with the eggplant. Cook, stirring often, until it is soft, about 10 to 12 minutes. If needed, cook in two batches and add more broth to prevent burning.
  5. Once cooked, add to the large bowl along with the garbanzo beans, parsley, tempeh, oats, and basil. Mix until uniform, then place into a food processor in two batches and pulse until chopped and combined but NOT pureed. If needed, you can pulse and also mash down with a fork later on in the bowl to prevent a pureed consistency.
  6. Place the mixture back into the large bowl and add in the remaining ingredients (breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, dried oregano, garlic powder, liquid smoke, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper). Adjust salt to taste, then roll into 30-35 meatballs, about 1-inch in diameter. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet(s) and bake until firm and browned, about 20-24 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with marinara and pasta or zucchini noodles or even make a meatball sub in a roll with vegan cheese.
