Kitchen Hint of the Day!

It’s a nutty idea, but it works……..

An easy way to shell pecans, walnuts, and other nuts is to freeze them first. When you freeze them it shrinks the nut away from the shell and makes shelling them a breeze. Another way is to soak them in boiling water for 15 minutes before shelling.

It’s Nuts I tell you……..BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES

This week from nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) we have a recipe for BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES. The recipe is made with a lot of the ingridients which can be purchased at the Nuts website (https://nuts.com/). Ingredients include; coconut milk, cacao butter, maple syrup or honey, and blueberry powder to name a few. So check out the Nuts website for recipes and all the healthy and delicious items they carry. You can choose from items; GIFTS, NUTS, DRIED FRUIT, CHOCOLATES and SWEETS, SNACKS, COFFEE and TEA, COOKING and BAKING, and more!. Plus there’s FREE shipping on orders over $59, see for details. On to the recipe for the BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018.

BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES

This blueberry cheesecake truffles recipe was developed exclusively for Nuts.com and our customers by the talented Anya Kassoff and Masha Davydova. This mother daughter team share their ideas about tasty and nourishing cooking on their website, Golubka Kitchen.
These blueberry cheesecake truffles are as decadent as they get, as well as vegan and made entirely of whole foods that are as good for you as they are delicious. Cashews, cacao and coconut butters yield their richness to these truffles and create a heavenly, buttery texture, while being amazing sources of healthy fat.
The blueberry powder that colors these treats a stunning purple is a great option for satisfying an out-of-season blueberry craving. It’s made of freeze-dried blueberries and retains many of the antioxidants and vitamins found in fresh blueberries, and tastes delicious to boot.
These truffles are sweetened with your choice of maple syrup or honey and get their characteristic, tart cheesecake flavor from the addition of fresh lemon juice and zest – all ingredients that we can stand behind for this indulgent yet wholesome treat.

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 30 truffles

Blueberry Cheesecake Truffles
Ingredients

fat from one 13.5 oz can full fat coconut milk (see note)
1 1/2 cups (about 120 g) organic raw cacao butter – shredded or chopped
1 cup coconut butter/manna
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup raw cashews – soaked in purified water for 4 hours
juice from 3 organic lemons
zest from 1 organic lemon
pinch sea salt
3 tablespoons blueberry powder – divided
desiccated coconut – for coating

Instructions

1 – Combine the coconut fat, cacao butter and coconut butter in a medium saucepan. Gently melt over very low heat, whisking until all the butters are incorporated into an even mixture. Add in the maple syrup or honey and whisk to combine until smooth.
2 – Drain and rinse the cashews and combine them with the lemon juice in an upright blender until smooth. Add the zest and salt and pulse to incorporate.
3 – Whisk the cashew mixture into the melted butters until fully combined. Evenly distribute the mixture between two medium bowls. Add 1 tablespoon of blueberry powder to one of the bowls and whisk to combine. Cover both bowls and place into the refrigerator until the mixtures are set, but still scoopable, about 1-2 hours.
4 – Prepare a large, parchment paper-covered tray or cutting board, along with two small bowls filled with the remaining 2 tablespoons of blueberry powder and desiccated coconut. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the truffle mixture at a time, rolling it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Roll each truffle in the desiccated coconut or blueberry powder (I rolled the white truffles in blueberry powder and the purple ones in desiccated coconut) and place onto the prepared tray. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Notes

To get the fat to separate from the water in a can of full-fat coconut milk, place the jar into the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight. All the fat should accumulate and harden at the top of the can.

Chicken Fesenjan
Laced with tangy-sweet pomegranate molasses and fragrant spices, this healthy and delicious Persian stew is traditionally prepared for festive occasions. Here we make it with chicken for a quick and easy dinner but it can also be made with lamb stew meat for special occasions. Serve with brown rice to sop up any extra sauce……..

Persian Grilled Chicken
This easy grilled chicken recipe owes its tenderness to an overnight soak in a yogurt-lemon juice marinade and its soulful flavor to saffron and onion. A healthy drizzle of saffron-infused butter before serving adds an extra layer of richness. Serve with aromatic rice with pistachios and torshi, Central Asian pickles available at Persian and Middle Eastern grocery stores……..

Lemony Labneh with Pistachios
Lemon olive oil and lemon zest give this labneh dip a fresh, bright flavor. Labneh, the thick, slightly salty Middle Eastern strained yogurt, is easy to make at home with this recipe. Serve with cucumber slices or pita chips as a dip or use it as a sauce to top roasted vegetables or chicken……..

It’s just not the Christmas Holiday without my Mom’s Christmas Chex Mix! Absolutely love this! Such a great combination of ingredients – Chex Cereals, Pretzels, and the Seasonings. They say to let it cool, I love it when it first comes out of the oven and just letting cool for a couple of minutes. Enjoy, I know we do!

Christmas Chex Mix

3 cups rice chex
2 cups whole wheat chex

2 cups mixed nuts

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Instructions

Pre heat oven to 250 degrees F.

3 – Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes (or just start eating!!). Store in airtight container.
