here is a light summer supper that i served at a recent champagne thursday.

on the left is my favorite lentil and asparagus salad with pesto and on the right, a pretty tomato and mozzarella salad with roasted (jarred) yellow peppers, basil leaves and a plate-drizzling of balsamic syrup.

serve with some crusty whole wheat bread and chilled white wine (or champagne!)

orange blossom sweet potato muffins

In recipe on June 25, 2014 at 12:37 am

unfortunately, i don’t seem to have any pictures of these. blogger fail. but here is the recipe, and i can tell you they turned out delightfully. they were tender and light – you could never guess they have whole wheat flour – with a subtle sweetness. 

i had leftover sweet potato from the sweet potato-salmon burgers, but you could used canned pumpkin or leftover mashed squashed, too.

mix together:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp salt

in a separate bowl, mix together:

1/3 cup white sugar
2 tbsp honey (i used raw. i doubt that it makes a difference)
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs (i used egg replacer)
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed sweet potato

fold the dry ingredients into the potato mixture gently. don’t over-mix or your muffins will be tough.

spoon into a greased muffin tin and bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
