Vegan BBQ Chicken Strips

I absolutely loved the taste of this dish. It was very quick & simple to make. I used Smart Life Chicken Strips and about 1/2 cup of all natural BBQ sauce, added some minced garlic, red bell peppers & cilantro. There was no need for me to add any natural seasonings. It blended perfectly! We enjoyed it over some Organic brown rice. Excellent for an entree' or quick meal.

Asparagus Stuffed Raviolis

Ingredients for the Raviolis:
1 cup semolina flour
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 cup water

For the filling:
Fresh asparagus (washed and cut into small pieces)
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup of grates vegan parmesan cheese (galaxy brand)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Pesto/Basil sauce:
Basil, canola oil, vegan parmesan cheese, walnuts (if allergic to nuts, leave out), olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper (blend to make sauce) OR if you prefer, you can purchase a store bought pesto sauce.

To make Ravioli:
In a bowl, combine the pasta dough ingredients to make a dough.
Wrap in a towel and let sit for 30 mins.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
Divide the dough in fourths and roll out each portion on a floured work space, allowing the first sheet of pasta to sit while rolling out the second.
One of the tricks to the pasta is to make sure you've rolled the dough out very thin.
Cut out your ravioli shapes and fill with the filling.
Place the top part of the ravioli over the filling and close with fork.
Close the form to seal and cut off the extra using a knife.
When the ravioli have all been made, put them in the boiling water and cook for a few minutes or until they are floating.
Serve the ravioli with the sauce.

To make filling:
Slice the end of the asparagus stalk off.
Slice the asparagus in very small circles.
Reserve a few asparagus tips as garnish.
Heat the oil in a frying pan.
Add the minced garlic.
Add the asparagus pieces and gently saute until al dente.
When the asparagus is ready, add the vegan parmesan and mix well.
Remove from the heat and reserve.

Red Potatoes:
Cut red potatoes in half (wash and clean)
Boil in salted water (drain once cooked)
In a large boil, add spanish olive oil, dried basil, dried parsley, season to taste with salt and pepper.

Fresh52 Farmers Market (Las Vegas/Henderson, NV.)

fresh52 farmers & artisan market is a lively, friendly, open air market where neighbors and friends come together to celebrate their community.

Every Sunday morning, the market features choice vendors with pesticide free seasonal produce, freshly baked goods, gourmet olive oils, salsas, spices, sauces, nuts, handmade modern craft, artisans & more!

On select dates you will find Special events, Live entertainment, Chef demonstrations, and Free kids craft parties with handmade in Vegas, our local Etsy group.

Join the market and make some extra cash! Show off your hidden talents, expose your crafty skills, and have FUN while making some money. Space is available for farmers, artists, chefs, musicians, performing artists, non-profits, kids activities and much more!

Why I choose to shop at Farmers Market!

I was first introduced to the Farmers Market at a very young age. My parents loved to start our weekend mornings with fresh produce shopping, under the bridge of Alameda, California. I loved the experience of seeing different vendors, it almost reminded me of a flea market. It didn't compare to shopping at a regular grocery store, due to the lack of variety in produce. At the Farmers Market, you get that one on one time with the actual farmers, which often lead to great deals. You get to know them on a different and personal level, and all the proceeds go directly to them. They can be more cost effective than most regular grocery stores, also without the added pesticides. Grocery stores don't give you the freshness you're looking for vs. the Farmers Markets, which supply you with organic produce and specialty items. Within the vicinity of the Farmers Market, they have different local shops and other vendors, such as fresh herbs, treats, and unique products. So it's no secret where to do your produce shopping, go to your local Farmers Market and support local farmers! Shop at Fresh52 Farmers Market.

(stay tuned for interviews from our local farmers/vendors)
(I also write weekly articles for fresh52, subscribe to their newsletters)
