Peach & Sweet Potato Salad

peachandsweetpotatosalad

Summer still lingers as whispers of Fall start to show up. This salad perfectly bridges the gap between summer and fall with fresh summer peaches and hearty root veggies. The natural sweetness from the seasonal produce helps curb sugar cravings while protein from nuts and goat cheese satisfies hunger. You can always add more protein of choice. What makes this salad special for me is the peach white balsamic which you can order online. Of course, traditional balsamic would be delicious too. 

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp avocado oil divided
  • 1 Sweet Potato (medium, sliced into small cubes)
  • 1 Peach (sliced)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar or this Summer Peach Balsamic from ConOlio
  • 4 cups Baby Spinach or Kale
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/4 cup Pistachios (shelled and chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Goat Cheese (crumbled) *optional

Instructions 

  • Sautee sweet potato cubes in one teaspoon oil for about ten minutes until cooked. 
  • Toss greens and tomatoes with the other teaspoon of oil, balsamic, and salt. 
  • Layer on the peaches, pistachios, potatoes and goat cheese. 
  • Enjoy!

Makes 2 side salads or one hearty entree salad. 

Bean + Veggie Patties

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can beans, drained, rinsed (any bean or lentil will work!)
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/2 cup onion, quartered 
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 cups veggies of choice, roughly chopped small enough to fit in the food processor. (we like to make veggie combos) - try broccoli, carrot, and zucchini or spinach, artichoke, and mushroom. 
  • 2 teaspoons avocado oil 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt 
  • Seasoning: 2 teaspoons fresh herbs and spices (to taste) Try Italian seasoning, Path Spice Mix, smoked sweet paprika, five spice, lemon pepper, etc) OR try 2 tablespoons pesto or harissa. You can flavor them however you like. Get creative!
  • 1 cup dry base ingredient, aka flour (Try Bob's Red-Mill baking 1:1 flour, Bob's All Purpose, or Almond Meal) 
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts - for crunch- optional 

INSTRUCTIONS 

• Heat 1 teaspoons oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook the veggies until softened, about 5 minutes.

• Transfer to a food processor and pulse with beans, optional flavor enhancers, salt until combined. If you prefer some veggie chunks for texture go for it, or you can mince fully, especially for kids.

• Move veggie mixture to a bowl. Mix in nuts if using. Add flour 1/4 cup at a time, mixing until firm enough to create patties. It should be firm enough to hold on to but not appear dry or crumble. 

• Form into golf ball size balls and flatten into patties.

• Heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat.

• Fry patties 2-3 minutes per side until browned and heated through.

• Top with sauce or condiment of choice, fried egg, avocado, and greens. Or, use as veggie burger patties! These are very versatile. You can eat them for any meal or as a snack. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers. Makes 4-6 servings.
