Honey Walnut Power Salad (pinchofyum.com)
Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes, washed and cut in half
  • 2 cups edamame (I did a quick steam-in-the-bag variety)
  • 1 cup uncooked bulgur or other grain
  • 3/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • fresh baby spinach
  • crumbled blue cheese
  • salt to taste
Directions:
  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Add onions and sauté on low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, golden brown, and almost sweet tasting.
  2. While onions are still cooking, pour bulgur and 2 cups water into a saucepan; bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes, until most of the moisture has absorbed and the grains are soft enough to eat. Let cool for 15 minutes.
  3. When onions are done, stir into the bulgur so the butter is absorbed by the grains. Season with salt.
  4. Combine grapes and edamame in a large mixing bowl. Add cooled bulgur and walnuts. Whisk water and honey; pour over mixture and stir well. Add fresh baby spinach and crumbled blue cheese just before serving. Enjoy!
Yogurt & Apricot Pie w/ Granola Crust (food&wine.com)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, crushed
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup warmed apricot preserves
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, almonds, oats and salt. In a large skillet, melt the butter in the oil. Add the granola mixture and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 5 minutes; transfer to a 9-inch glass pie plate and let cool slightly
  2. Using a flat-bottomed glass, gently press the granola evenly over the bottom and side of the pie plate to form a 1/2-inch-thick crust. Freeze the crust for about 10 minutes, until completely cooled.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the yogurt with the eggs sugar, lemon juice and vanilla; whisk until smooth. Pour the filling into the pie shell and bake for 25 minutes, until the filling is set but still slightly jiggly in the center. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Pour the warm apricot preserves on top of the yogurt and gently spread in an even layer. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours. Using a warm knife, cut the pie into wedges and serve.
