This healthy blackberry tart features a delicate olive oil crust, tart blackberries and fresh lemon for a show-stopper summertime treat!

 

Ingredients

Units Scale

Tart Dough:

  • 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Lemon Zest (zest from 1 medium-sized lemon
  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 34 tbsp Ice Water (as needed to bring dough together)

Tart Filling:

  • 16 oz Blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 5 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Coarse Sugar (optional for topping)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F
  2. Spray a tart pan or pie pan with nonstick spray, set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a food processor add all the dough ingredients except water. Pulse together for 10-15 seconds to mix the dough. If the dough seems very crumbly, add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time to bring the dough together. It should stay together when you pinch with your fingers.
  4. Grab you pie or tart pan and place your dough into the pan. Using your hands or the bottom of a measuring cup, press the dough evenly into the pan. Start at the center of the pan and work your way out to evenly distribute the dough around the entire pan and slightly up the edges, just as you would a pie crust. Refrigerate your dough while you mix up the filling.
  5. In a medium size bowl, add the blackberries, lemon juice, sugar and flour. Mix together gently with a spatula.
  6. Remove your tart crust from the refrigerator and pour the blackberry filling into the crust. Give the pan a gentle shake back and forth to evenly distribute the blackberries. Top the berries with 1 tablespoon of coarse sugar.
  7. Place the tart pan onto a sheet tray (this is a must if you do not want to spend the next day cleaning your oven!) and place into the oven.
  8. Bake at 400° F for 30 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 10 minutes before digging in. Enjoy!

Description

Flavorful and flexitarian this dinner will impress your guests and family!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 lbs Chicken Breasts, diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 2, 15oz Cans Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Large Onion, diced
  • 2 Lemons, zested and juiced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 3 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Set out two separate mixing bowls, one will be for the chicken, the other for the chickpeas. (Note: If you do not mind the meat and chickpeas mixed together then feel free to use one large bowl!)
  2. To one bowl, mix up the marinade. Add the olive oil, diced onion, garlic, lemon zest and juice, oregano, salt and pepper. Whisk together to combine.
  3. Pour half of the marinade into the other bowl. You should have half of the marinade in each bowl.
  4. Add the chickpeas to one bowl and cover then add the chicken to the other bowl and cover it. Place both bowls into the refrigerator to marinate for at least 1 hour and up to 6 hours.
  5. When you are ready to cook. Heat two large cast iron pans over medium high heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil to each pan.
  6. When the pans are heated, add the chickpeas to one pan and the chicken to the other.
  7. Cook the chicken and chickpeas, stirring frequently, for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the chickpeas are crispy. The cast iron pan will help to crisp and slightly char the chicken and chickpeas. This is good flavor! (Note that the chicken should be cooked through to 165 F).
  8. Serve the chicken and chickpeas over whole wheat naan bread, tzatizki sauce, tomato and cucumber salad and top with feta and kalamata olives. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Eat this with Whole Wheat Naan bread topped with Tzatziki Sauce and Tomato & Cucumber Salad
  • Top with feta cheese and kalamata olives

Pesto Garlic Knots are delicious bites packed with spinach pesto, garlic and cheese. Perfect as an appetizer or side dish!


Ingredients

Units Scale

Instructions

  1. Start by making the Whole Wheat Pizza Dough and Spinach Pesto.
  2. Roll the pizza dough into a square, roughly 12×12 inches.
  3. Using a spatula, spread the pesto onto the dough, leaving about a 1/2 inch border around all sides.
  4. Evenly sprinkle the mozzarella over the pesto.
  5. Next, take the top half of the dough and fold down to meet the bottom. You are basically folding the dough in half here. (Check out the video for a play-by-play!)
  6. Then, using a knife or bench scraper, cut the dough horizontally into 6 sections. You should have 6 rectangles at this point.
  7. Now, take one of your rectangles and vertically cut two slits into the dough, keeping the top portion intact. Continue with remaining rectangles.
  8. Next it’s time to braid! Take one of your rectangles and fold the left dough portion over the middle section then repeat with the left side. Continue braiding until you reach the end of the dough. Then, pinch the bottom of the dough to seal. Now take the end you sealed and roll it up towards the other end. You will now have a braided pesto knot! Continue with the rest of the rectangles.
  9. Place the knots into a 9×9 baking dish and brush with a little olive oil.
  10. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and serve with marinara sauce. Enjoy!

Description

This Mediterranean Egg Wrap is a mix between an omelet and a breakfast burrito but it is so much better than both of those! Plus, it packs in 31 grams of protein per serving!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp Unsweetened Soy Milk
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 1 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup Raw Baby Spinach
  • 3/4 oz Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla

Instructions

  1. Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil.
  2. When the pan is heated up, add the peppers and mushrooms and sautee for 1-2 minutes until the mushrooms are nicely browned.
  3. Next add a handful of spinach and sautee for 1 minute.
  4. While the spinach and veggies cook, whisk up the eggs, milk, Greek Yogurt and salt and pepper in a bowl.
  5. Then, pour the egg into the pan, over top of the veggies. Give the pan a little shake to spread the eggs out evenly.
  6. Place the tortilla on top of the egg mixture and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes.
  7. After 5 minutes, run your spatula around the outside edge of the egg to make sure it will easily release and that it is cooked through.
  8. Using a large spatula, flip the mixture over so that the tortilla is now on the bottom. Add the grated cheese and allow the tortilla to brown for 1 minute.
  9. Finally, roll or fold the tortilla egg up. I find that folding into thirds like a letter works well. Then, give the roll up a little press with your spatula to fully crisp the bottom.
  10. Now, slide it onto a plate, cut in half on a diagonal and dig in!

  • 1 pt Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata Olives
  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese
Balsamic Dressing Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

Instructions

For the quinoa and veggies
  1. Rinse the 1 1/2 cups quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. In a medium saucepan, heat 3 cups of water over high heat. Add the rinsed quinoa. Bring quinoa and water to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. The quinoa is done cooking when all the water is absorbed and it is light and fluffy.
  2. Prep and slice veggies.
  3. Peel cucumber and slice off the ends. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Using a small spoon scoop out the seeds. Next, slice each half lengthwise into 1/2 inch long sections. Then stack your long sections together to dice into 1/2 inch dice. Place diced cucumber into a large bowl.
  4. Rinse your cherry tomatoes. Slice each tomato lengthwise (its prettier!). Place into bowl with cucumber.
  5. Slice kalamata olives in half. Place into bowl with cucumber and tomato.
 
For the balsamic dressing
  1. Into a small mixing bowl or mason jar add all dressing ingredients. Whisk until the dressing is fully emulsified. Taste the dressing and adjust seasonings per your preference
Putting the salad together
  1. Once the quinoa has finished cooking add 3/4 of the dressing to the hot quinoa and stir to mix well. This will allow the quinoa to really absorb the dressing.
    Place the quinoa into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  2. Once the quinoa has cooled, place it into a large bowl. Add the cucumber, cherry tomatoes and kalamata olives. Next add the feta and mix together, taking care not to smash your tomatoes. Add the remaining 1/4 of the dressing and mix together. Place the salad back into the refrigerator for 1 more hour. Serve chilled, enjoy!
