Tasty Tuesday: Ginger Broth

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

We have had a bout of a yucky tummy bug through our house the past several days. Unfortunately I seem to have gotten it the worst. It’s definitely hard on a family when mama is sick. 🙁

Thankfully my hubby will quickly step up to the plate if and when needed. Such has been the case this go-around as he has somehow managed to escape this yucky bug. He has been truly awesome this past week and I needed to give him a public shout-out: Thanks honey! 🙂

I don’t get sick too often but whenever I do hubby makes me this very simple ginger broth. In addition to the delicious flavor, the ginger helps settle an upset tummy while the garlic boosts your immune system. Plus the Bragg’s Liquid Aminos helps keep up those electrolytes.

While making it your house will be filled with yummy smells. Upon drinking it you will be filled with warmth and comfort. In fact I am enjoying a cup at this very moment as I type this out to share with you.

Ingredients:

2 cups of water

1 inch slice of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

1 clove of garlic, peeled and cut in half

1.5 tablespoons of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos

Directions:

Add all ingredients in a small pot and boil for 6 to 8 minutes.

Enjoy!

Tasty Tuesday: Veggie Stir Fry with Cashews

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Veggie Stir Fry is my favorite last minute go-to meals. It’s a simple, quick yet healthy meal that I can whip together in under 30 minutes. Plus I almost always have the ingredients at home on any given day. Although stiry fry is very forgiving so it’s easy to utilize whatever ingredients you have on hand to create a delicous meal. One trick to speed up cooking time (and for added protein) is to use quinoa instead of rice. Quinoa is a faster cooking grain and offers different nutrients than rice.

Ingredients:

3 cups water

1.5 cups quinoa

Olive Oil

1 onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, sliced

1/2 inch to inch section of fresh ginger, minced

1 red pepper, chopped

1 zucchini, chopped

1 bunch of broccoli, chopped

1/3 cup Soy Sauce ( I use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos)

1/4 cup sesame oil

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 Tablespoon honey

pinch of red pepper flakes

3/4 cup raw cashews

optional topping: chopped green onion and/or cilantro

Directions:

1. Bring 3 cups of water to a full boil. Add 1.5 cups of quinoa. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cover. Allow to gently simmer for 15 minutes.

2. While quinoa cooks, saute garlic, ginger, and onions in olive oil over medium heat for approx 5 minutes.

3. Add zucchini and red pepper. Saute for 5 minutes.

4. Mix soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Set aside.

5. Add broccoli and cashews to sauteed vegetables. Cover for 3-5 minutes until broccoli turns bright green.

6. Pour soy sauce mixture over veggies and allow to cook for a few more minutes until thoroughly heated.

Serve over cooked quinoa with optional toppings of cilantro and/or green onion. Enjoy! 🙂

What’s your favorite quick and healthy go-to dinner?
