Crowdsource Recipe Testing: September 9th

Posted on Sep 9, 2012 by in All Posts | 0 comments

It’s Sunday, a day of rest, and that’s exactly what I intend on doing today! Sunday is my rest day from working out and football season officially starts today, so kicking back and relaxing is my #1 to-do today. It’s also the end of my little one’s first week of school, so it’s nice just to sit around and snuggle with her – she’s growing up way too fast!

This week I was drawn to really bright and vibrant colors. It’s a fairly loose theme for this week’s post, but it’s what I found most appealing as I was looking at food porn this week. Enjoy!

Israeli Inspired Salad – So many bright colors here! I also love that you can make this as a way to use up some of your summer produce. My favorite part is the addition of the radishes. I’ve never been a huge fan of them, but when combined with these other ingredients I think I would eat them right up! (click link above to see photo)

Beet Infused Tostadas – Tostadas are one of my favorite ways to make Mexican food at home and these beet-infused ones look amazing! The vibrant red color jumps off of the plate and they seem very easy to make. This is a fun way to add some color to your snack plates for football games as well.

Raw Lasagna – Though this recipe seems very labor intensive, the final product is absolutely beautiful! The thing that drew me to this recipe was the raw walnut ‘meat’ that goes into this lasagna. I love the idea of using walnuts as a meat replacement.

Pistachio Arugula Pesto – The vibrant green color of this pesto is mesmerizing! The husband loves to eat pesto on everything, but I don’t like buying pine nuts 1) because they are expensive and 2) I don’t really use them for anything else. Pistachios are nummy just on their own, so I can get behind this recipe for sure!

Jackfruit Enchiladas – I used jackfruit once before in one my sandwich queen posts, but I’ve been looking for another recipe that uses jackfruit for some time now. These enchiladas are vibrant and they look fairly easy to make. The use of the jackfruit gives it that ‘pulled-meat’ texture that makes a great layer to any dish.
