1 can evaporated milk
3 large eggs, beatem
2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese
2 cup chopped, frozen broccoli, thawed and drained
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and lightly flour twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups.
Whisk evaporated milk, eggs, flour, salt, and black pepper in medium bowl until blended. Stir in cheese, broccoli, and bell pepper. Spoon 1/4 to 1/3 cup of mixture into each prepared muffin cup, filling almost to rim. Stir mixture frequently to evenly distribute ingredients.
Bake for 23 to 28 minutes until knife inserted near centers comes out clean and tops are lightly browned. Cool in pans for 15 minutes. Run knife or small, plat spatula around inside edges of muffin cups. Carefully remove quiches.
1 pound black beans
8 cups water
1/2 small white onion
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 epazote sprig
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 1/2 more to fry chiles de arbol
1 red onion, chopped
3 chiles de arbol
salt to taste
6 corn tortillas, julienned and fried (or corn chips)
6 large eggs
In a medium bowl, soak the beans overnight. The morning after, drain and rinse the beans. Add the beans to a large pot and cover with 8 cups of water; add the garlic clove, olive oil, and white onion to the pot. Bring the beans to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for 60 – 90 minutes until the beans are done. Add the epazote sprig and cook 5 more minutes. Drain the beans (reserve the beans broth), and remove the epazote sprig, white onion, and garlic. Puree the beans using a blender or a potato smasher; add a few tablespoons of beans broth to obtain creamy beans.
Fry the chiles de arbol. In a large frying pan, add 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and heat over medium-high heat until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Fry chiles de arbol until golden brown. Add the chopped red onion and saute until golden brown. Add the drained beans and toss to coat in the red onion and chiles de arbol. Season with salt if desired.
Once the beans have cooked for about five minutes, add the tortilla chips and remove from the heat. Cover to keep warm while the eggs are cooking.
Add cooking spray to another pan and heat over medium-high heat. Break 2 eggs into the pan, reduce heat to medium low. Cook until the eggs whites are set and the yolks begin to thicken slightly. Repeat with the remaining 4 eggs.
Serve the eggs atop the cooked beans.
juice of 2 large grapefruits
1-2 ripe bananas
1 avocado (optional, this was my own addition to the vendor’s recipe)
fresh ginger – to taste
sunflower microgreens/sprouts – 2 handfuls or more to taste
In a blender, combine all the ingredients until smooth and enjoy.
1/2 cups oats
1 cup soy milk
1/2 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons pecans, chopped
Mix together the oats, soy milk, cinnamon, and honey in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, top with fresh berries and pecans, add additional honey if desired.
12 thin slices of deli ham (round)
1/2 Cup of your favorite cheese (I used Parmesan)
1/2 Cup diced scallions
Fresh cracked Sea Salt and Pepper
Preheat the oven to 400. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Lay a piece of ham in each hole creating a little ham cup. Crack one egg into each hole and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake the eggs for about 12 minutes…until the white is firm and the yolk is still nice and runny.
Carefully remove each egg from the muffin tin and top with grated cheese and scallions. Serve hot!
Makes 12 servings
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg (preferably room temperature)
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk
Topping (option: cut topping in half*)
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium-large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined, but still a bit lumpy. Don’t overmix. Scoop batter into muffin tins that have sprayed with cooking spray. Using a large ice cream scoop, I got 8 medium-large muffins out of this batter; I think you could get 10-12 muffins by distributing the batter a little less generously. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they just start to turn a bit golden at the edges.
For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place melted butter in another small bowl. Dip the warm muffins in melted butter (you can dip just the top, but it’s even tastier to dip the whole muffin!), then dip/roll the muffin in cinnamon sugar.
