    Directions:

    Put about two tablespoons of cranberries in some apple juice (or water or orange juice) to soak.

  • Grilled Eggplant

    Ingredients:

    • eggplant (size and number depends on amount of people to be served)
    • oil
    • basil
    • rosemary

    Directions:

    Clean and slice eggplant into quarter of an inch slices, lengthwise.

    Brush eggplant slices with olive oil, then sprinkle with chopped basil and rosemary. Grill the eggplant slices, either in a skillet, or on the grill outside. Whichever works best! They grill fast and can stick, so make sure to brush grill with olive oil and watch closely.

    This recipe also works beautifully for squash and zucchini!

    Serves: 4 (depends on size of eggplant)

    Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • Kale Sauté

    Ingredients:

    • 1 tsp mild flavored olive oil
    • 1 small onion, cut in half and sliced
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed (or 1/2 tsp. bottled garlic puree)
    • 1 bunch kale
    • 1 small tomato

    Directions:

    In skillet (preferably cast iron), place oil, onion, garlic, and 1/4 c. water. Cover and cook over medium heat until onions are transparent. Meanwhile, wash kale and separate from ribs. Chop the kale leaves and add to the skillet. Saute 5 minutes or until kale wilts and turns deep green. Meanwhile, dice the tomato (you can seed it if you like, or add it seeds and all). Add to kale and cook until tomato begins to release its juice and the dish is hot.

    Serve over brown rice.

    Serves: 3

    Preparation time: 15 minutes
