PICKLED BEET SALAD WITH PEARS, WALNUTS & GOAT

2 Servings

“Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects.  The betalin pigments in beets support your body’s Phase 2 detoxification process, which is when broken down toxins are bound to other molecules so they can be excreted from your body. Traditionally, beets are valued for their support in detoxification and helping to purify your blood and your liver.  The powerful phytonutrients that give beets their deep crimson color may even help to ward off cancer. “ source: Mercola

Cake Batter Chocolate Frozen Bananas.

Ingredients:

12 ounces of chocolate (you can do white, milk or dark)
2 tablespoons of Funfetti cake batter (powder)
Vegetable oil
2 whole bananas, peeled and halved
4 popsicle sticks
Sprinkles

Directions:

Pull out a platter or large plate and cover with parchment or foil.  Set aside.

Over a double boiler, melt your chocolate of choice.  Slowly start to stir the chocolate until melted.  Add the cake batter powder and mix.  At this point, add a small amount of the oil. This will loosen the chocolate up and make it easier for covering the bananas.  Add tiny amounts until you get to the right consistency.  I probably used about a tablespoon or a bit less.

Take your sticks and insert them cautiously into the larger end of the banana. Then take a spoon and pour the chocolate over the banana. Coat with sprinkles and set on a parchment lined plate and freeze. Serve right out of the freezer, nice and cold.

Frozen Baked Sweet Potato (冰烤地瓜)

  • Recipe by George L.Course:

5minutesCooking time

1hour 

An oxymoron-sounding name, but a real Taiwanese classic: Frozen Baked Sweet Potatoes. These are baked to caramel-sweet perfection, then frozen to achieve an almost popsicle-like texture. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4  sweet potatoes (300 – 400g each) 

DIRECTIONS

  • Choosing Sweet Potatoes. Different varieties of sweet potato contain different amounts of sugar content; for this recipe, I recommend using Taiwanese (orange flesh) or Japanese / Korean sweet potatoes (yellow flesh). Sugar content is pivotal so do not use starchy varieties like the Okinawan sweet potato (purple flesh). The ideal shape will be long, slender sweet potatoes that are not too round or too big. They also should not be sprouting, as that will drastically reduce sugar content. 
  • Bake the Sweet Potatoes. Preheat the oven to 230 C (450 F) with convection on, if available. Brush and wash the sweet potatoes very well, then dry completely. Note: Make sure to clean the sweet potatoes very well, especially if you’re planning to eat the skin (which I highly recommend!). Place sweet potatoes directly on the oven rack and let bake. The baking process will take 40-60 minutes, depending on the size and shape of your sweet potatoes. The way to tell when they’re done is by poking & tapping the skin: it should feel hardened and almost completely separate from the flesh, creating a hollow sound. The room should smell distinctly of dark caramel. Once the sweet potatoes are at your desired doneness, take them out of the oven and let them rest on a wire rack. Note: you can enjoy some hot and freeze the rest. 
  • Freeze the Sweet Potato.Once the sweet potatoes have cooled completely, pack them in a freezer-safe bag and freeze for about 4 hours. This will get you the perfect ice cream like texture. Note: Letting the baked sweet potatoes cool completely prevents condensation in the freezer bags. Alternatively, you can flash freeze them uncovered without cooling, then pack them in bags later. If freezing overnight, let the sweet potatoes thaw for about 10 minutes at room temperature before enjoying. Alternatively, microwave the sweet potato for about 30 seconds. Eat it while cold!

Strawberry Pretzel Salad

Strawberry Pretzel Salad
Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
Yield: 12 servings

If “salad” is in the name, does it technically count as dessert? We can’t get enough of this sweet and salty combination topped with tart strawberries. This recipe is always popular at parties, too!

Ingredients
• 6 oz strawberry Jell-O
• 2 cups boiling water
• 2 1/2 cups salted pretzels (measured before crushing)
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 8-ounce package cream cheese softened
• 1/2 cup granulated sugar
• 8 ounces cool whip thawed in the fridge
• 1 pound fresh strawberries hulled and sliced

Directions
Step 1
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine strawberry Jell-O with 2 cups boiling water and stir until completely dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Step 2
Crush 2 1/2 cups pretzels in a sturdy Ziploc bag, using a rolling pin.
Step 3
In a medium saucepan, melt 8 tablespoons butter then add 1/4 cup sugar and stir. Mix in crushed pretzels. Transfer to a 13×9 glass casserole dish, pressing the pretzel mix evenly over the bottom of the dish, and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, then cool to room temperature.
Step 4
When pretzels have cooled, use an electric hand mixer to beat 8 ounces cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar on medium/high speed until fluffy and white. Fold in 8 ounces Cool Whip until no streaks of cream cheese remain. Spread mixture over cooled pretzels, spreading to the edges of the dish to create a tight seal. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Step 5
Hull and slice 1 pound strawberries then stir into your room-temperature jello. Pour and spread strawberry jello mixture evenly over your cooled cream cheese layer and refrigerate until jello is set (2-4 hours).
