Fresh Juice

The other day I pulled out my very basic Oster juicer……and I don’t regret it.  The fabulous concoction that heightened my day, consisted of: refreshing juice



-fresh ginger


-sweet potato

Check out the lovely foam.  juicie juice

So after juicing, remains a bowl of pulp that perhaps you wonder what to do with.  pulpI personally don’t believe in waste, consequently, I have always tried to maintain that my pulp goes into my baking, such as in a quick bread or breakfast muffins. Unfortunately I don’t have images to prove it from the past, and lately I’ve been too busy to follow my own standards. Sorry.

Spring Asparagus and Broccolini Farro & Kale Pesto

This will be a dish I try in the very near future.


Farro is one of those whole grains that speaks volumes about comfort to me. It’s nutty and toothsome and just the thing to serve as a great base for any season’s fresh veggies. This dish takes all the best spring has to offer and ties it into perineal favorites like broccolini and lemon.

Spring Asparagus and Broccolini Farro with Kale Pesto

1/2 c. farro
1 c. vegetable broth
1 bunch broccolini
1 bunch asparagus
3/4 bulb fennel
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c. water
1 Tbsp. garlic infused olive oil
1/2 c. kale pesto
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Big pinch red pepper flakes
Salt & pepper to taste

Bring the farro and stock up to a boil in a medium pot. Cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Turn the heat off and let sit with the lid on an additional 5 minutes.

On to the veg. Chop…
