  • Healthy Recipes

    Amanda's Roasted Chickpeas

    Submitted by Amanda Conti, Board Certified Holistic Health Coach (AADP)

    Servings: 2 (as snack) Prep Time: 5 Cook Time: 30

    I highly recommend doubling a batch of Roasted Chickpeas, the bowl will be empty in 10 minutes! This is a one of the simplest snack recipes - four ingredients and it starts with a can of chickpeas pulled from your pantry. You can use any spice blend.

    • One 15-ounce can garbanzo beans
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Salt
    • Spice blend of your choice

    Preheat oven to 400F.

    Drain the can of garbanzo beans in a strainer and rinse with water for a few seconds to clean off the beans. Shake and tap the strainer to rid of excess water. Lay paper towel on a baking sheet, and spread the beans over. Use another paper towel to gently press and absorb the water on the beans. Roll the beans around with the paper towel to also remove the thin skin from any of the beans. Discard the skins and the paper towels.

    Drizzle the olive oil over the beans and use your hands or a spatula to toss around and coat. Roast for 30-40 minutes until the beans are a deep golden brown and crunchy. Make sure that the beans do not burn.

    Season with salt and spice blend.

     


    Kale Soup with White Beans & Turkey Sausage

    Submitted by Amanda Conti, Board Certified Holistic Health Coach (AADP)

    Ingredients

    • One medium onion, chopped
    • A few garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 pound lean ground beef, ground chicken breast or ground turkey breast (organic grass fed 95% lean ground beef recommended)
    • 1/2 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage, casing removed
    • One bunch kale (Dino Kale or regular kale) stems removed, chopped
    • One 32 oz. can/box chicken broth
    • 2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    • One large can chopped or crushed tomatoes

    Directions

    In a large dutch oven, over medium heat, sauté onions and garlic, in olive oil, until soft. Add ground meat of choice and turkey sausage (remember to take sausage out of casings so it will crumble when it cooks) and cook thoroughly. Once meat is cooked, pour in enough chicken broth to just cover the meat. Add the kale and pile all the way to top of pot. Put cover on and simmer until kale has wilted down. Once wilted, add beans, tomatoes and remaining chicken broth. If you like it "soupier" you can always add more broth. Heat through and then cover and let simmer for about an hour. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan and some crusty bread.

     


    Kale Chips

    Submitted by Amanda Conti, Board Certified Holistic Health Coach (AADP)

    • 1 bunch Kale
    • 1-2 TBS extra virgin olive oil 
    • Pink Himalayan sea salt (or regular sea salt)

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

    Wash and dry kale.

    Remove stems from kale. You can easily do this by holding the stem end and ripping the leaves off of the stem. Then rip leaves into chip sized pieces and put on baking sheet. They will shrink a bit when cooking so you don't want to rip them too small.

    Next you drizzle your olive oil over your pile of kale and massage the oil into the leaves. You'll see the leaves get nice and shiny. Lay out in a single layer, taking care not to overlap. Sprinkle with sea salt and pop into the oven for about 10-20 minutes. Make sure to keep a close eye during the second half of cooking time as they can burn easily.

    Watch this tasty and healthy snack disappear before your eyes.
