I have to admit, whenever a get a new kitchen toy, I make all the things that I can with it. My newest gadget is the Veggie Bullet. (Not sponsored, just use it and like it). It makes zoodles, and more zoodles quickly, and as you know, zoodle gadgets aren’t always easy to use. Using zucchini and yellow squash, I made this Zoodles With Avocado Basil Pesto dish for lunch. The secret to the great flavor in this dish is the Pesto–see if you agree.
I love chia for all of the benefits that it offers…fiber, antioxidants and protein to name a few. I am always looking to create great new combinations with chia seeds.. Today, it is Chai Chia Berry Pudding. We already love chai when mixed with tea, so, why not include it in other recipes? The result is that the pudding is completely smooth, and goes down like silk. Yum. On a practical note, on occasion, I am not in the mood for the texture of chia seeds, so I ground them in the Vitamix with a dry grains container. They are then powdery, and smooth and very pudding like. Kids will never suspect that this is so healthy and good for them!
