St. Patty’s Day Green Bell Peppers & Eggs Breakfast

1 Tbs. Oil

Directions

  • Cut bell peppers into 1/2 inch rings
  • Place in a non-stick lightly oiled skillet
  • Crack an egg in the middle of each ring and cover and cook over low heat until done. If you like your yolks runny, just cook over low heat until whites are done. If you like your yolks firm, break the yolks and then cook over low heat until both whites and yolks are firm.

Lucky Leprechaun Dip

Serving: makes about 2 1/2 cups

Ingredients
1 can white cannellini beans (1 1/2 cups) – drain/rinse in hot water
1 cup kale (I actually used frozen kale! But fresh works too)
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp lemon juice + generous pinch of lemon zest
1/2 tsp fine black pepper
3 dashes of cayenne
1/4 cup raw cashews (no need to soak if using a high speed blender of food processor)
1 1/2 Tbsp tahini, roasted, organic
1/4+ cup warm water
1/4 cup chopped parsley, flat-leaf
optional: garlic powder or roasted garlic

Directions

  • Add all ingredients to blender Vitamix. Blend from low to high until silky and smooth. Add a few extra splashes of water or drizzles of oil if needed to blend smooth. (It will firm up quite a bit in the fridge)
  • Pour in serving dish and chill in for 1 hour or overnight. You could serve right away or warm if desired as well.
  • Serve with a drizzle of olive oil on top and fresh parsley to garnish.

Serve with: flax crackers, carrot sticks, rice crackers, toasty bread and more.
