INGREDIENTS

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
  • chili powder for garnish (optional)

You won’t even miss the mayo in this tasty twist on the traditional deviled egg. The creaminess of the avocado and the refreshing taste of lime make this dish unforgettable.

INSTRUCTIONS
Place the eggs in a large saucepan and fill with cold water so there’s about 1-inch of water covering the eggs. Bring the water to a boil, then immediately remove from heat and cover with a lid and let sit for 15 minutes.

Fill a large bowl with ice water. When the 15 minutes are up, remove the eggs from the saucepan with a slotted spoon and place into the ice water bath to cool.

Peel the eggs by gently tapping them on a hard surface until you see a crackle all around the egg. Peel the shell away from the egg carefully, trying to keep all of the egg white intact.

Once peeled, cut each egg in half lengthwise. Gently remove the egg yolks and move yolks to a mixing bowl. Transfer egg whites to a serving plate or platter.

Add 1 tablespoon cilantro, lime juice, salt and olive oil to the mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

In a separate mixing bowl, mash the avocado, then combine with egg mixture.

Spoon the mixture into the egg whites (where you removed the yolk from). For a nicer presentation, you can pipe the mixture into the egg white from a pastry bag.

Garnish your finished eggs with the remaining cilantro and dust with chili pepper.

Staying Well, Working Happy and Farm Fresh to You

freeman-farmers-marketWe talk about wellness often at work. We are heading into flu season and many people in our group are feeling crummy. I often share the “news of the day” and no surprise, it is about eating well, living well and enjoying each day.

I have many types of suggestions: exercise, yoga, drinking water, getting more sleep, taking a walk…. but by far the best, most fun, and easiest healthy change is TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU EAT!

Companies can brace themselves for many sick days, lost productivity and teams that are worn out and low energy… OR they can get involved in encouraging healthy choices.

Fresh Tomato Sauce from Farm Fresh to You

Here’s a quick sauce that allows you to revel in summer flavor without keeping you in a hot kitchen. Preserve every last precious drop of summer time.

Fresh Cherry-Tomato Sauce
Fresh Tomato sauce
(serves 4-6)

3 pints (approx. 6 cups) cherry tomatoes, halved if large – assorted types okay
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, whole
½ cup, Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
3–4 tbsp fresh oregano, leaves chopped
1 cup fresh basil, cut into ribbons or coarsely chopped
2 tsps unsalted butter (optional)
Freshly-ground black pepper and salt, to taste
Freshly-grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (optional for serving) tablespoons olive oil

Instructions:

Add olive oil to cold pan. Smash garlic cloves directly into oil, slowly softening garlic over gently heat to infuse the oil with flavor. Turn down heat if garlic starts to brown too quickly.

Once garlic is soft and lightly golden, turn heat up to medium and add Kalamata olives or other flavor boosters mentioned above and sauté briefly to warm and soften.

Add cherry tomatoes and oregano to pan. Turn up the heat to medium high and allow to simmer, cooking for 20 minutes or until tomatoes are fully cooked, juices incorporate and sauce thickens. Sauce shouldn’t be rapidly boiling but a heavy simmer is okay. Remove sauce from heat and gently stir in fresh basil and butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Visit our site for more seasonal recipes.
