Immunity Builder Pita Pizza

pizza

  • 1 – 8″ Pita Bread
  • 2 cups Immunity Builder Salad Mix
  • 2 Tbl marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • our pizza seasoning mix or oregano
  • garlic powder


Put 2 Tbl marinara on pita bread. Season with seasoning mix or oregano and garlic powder. Spread 2 cups of salad mix and top with cheese. Season again with seasoning mix or oregano and garlic powder. Cook in oven or toaster oven at 450 degrees until cheese starts to brown (about 10 minutes).

Enjoy! This is a nutritious, quick & easy, very filling and low calorie meal. (about 250 calories). I make two at a time which takes about 8-10 minutes and keep one in the fridge for later (it keeps about 2-3 days ).

Immunity Builder Toasted Spring Rollsspring rolls

  • 3 cups of Immunity Builder Salad Mix
  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • 1 tsp organic lemon juice
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • Spring roll skins – We have them for sale!

These are one of our favorite snacks. They contain about 50 calories (less than 2 pretzel sticks) — and they are very tasty, very filling, and very healthy. The toasted spring roll, slightly warmed salad mix and the lemon and hot pepper make a great combination. Kids love them and they can be a great after school or after work snack.

You can make these without dressing — and some make them plain but dip them in a sauce or favorite dressing.

You can make them ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator for a few days (We put layers of paper towels between them when we make a lot). Note: They will keep better without dressing. When you want a quick snack, just pop them in the toaster oven and they will be ready in about 5 minutes (remove as soon as they start to brown).

Warm 3/4 – 1 inch of salad mix in a non-stick pan, and cook til wilting. Some people like to use frozen greens which will wilt when thawed.

Reduce heat to very low and slowly cook until the eggs are done.

Fat Free & Fabulous Fried Ricefried rice

You never knew fried rice could be so healthy — or so good.

I am a big fan of fried rice but I don’t like using white rice and, never liked the amount of oil used in making it.

So I have been trying for many years to make a fried rice recipe using brown rice that tasted good and had as little oil as possible. The last piece of the puzzle was our Immunity Builder Salad Mix which adds color, flavor and a nice crunch to the rice. Here is our recipe.

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • ¼ lb chicken breast, pork tenderloin or shrimp (optional)
  • 2½ – 3 cups Immunity Builder Salad Mix — chopped a little finer
  • ½ cup frozen peas or snap peas

Sauce

  • 1½ Tbl red wine vinegar 2 Tbl soy sauce
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1½ tsp fresh chopped organic ginger or 1/2 tsp  powdered dried ginger
  • ½ tsp red hot sauce (optional – but does not add too much heat)
  • 1-2 Tbl olive oil (optional)

Cook 1 cup of brown rice with no more than 1 ½ cups of water and keep warm. Cook meat in a little water or bouillon — add the sauce mix — bring to a boil — add the rice — and mix thoroughly — then mix in the peas. Let cook for  a minute if using snap peas. Remove from the heat — let the rice absorb all of the liquid — and mix in the Immunity Builder Salad Mix. Serve immediately while the salad is still crunchy.

Turkey Meatloaf with Roasted Veggies

Here is a great recipe for meatloaf with salad greens and veggies added for flavor and nutrients. The flavor and moistness even surprised my mother.

Thanks to my friend and master cook Sally Dixon for introducing me to this combination of meatloaf and veggies cooked together.

  • Two pounds extra lean turkey meat
  • 4 cups of Immunity Builder Salad Mix – coarsely chopped
  • 1 ½ cups of our Garden Salsa
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
  • Favorite seasoning mix – I prefer 1/4 cup of our Maui onion seasoning mix.

Mix above ingredients together in a bowl and form into loaf in the center of a large pan or roaster. Add as many organic potatoes, carrots, cremini mushrooms and onions and/or shallots as will fit in the pan.

We used a dozen organic potatoes, 1 lb of organic carrots, 1 lb of cremini mushrooms and a dozen shallots.

Roast covered at 350 degrees for about 60 minutes — remove cover and cook about another 10 or 15 minutes or until meat browns.

We had some extra turkey mix and put it into a muffin pan, making turkeyloaf muffins. These only needed to be cooked about 35 minutes. They were very moist and made a nice portion size for dinner.
