Menu Plan Monday–coconut

It’s been a delight to see the coming of Spring, and I’m excited to post garden pictures very soon….but on to the food!

Angela has chosen coconut as this weeks’ ingredient.  I love coconut, especially young coconut. The water is just delicious and I blend the “meat’ into coconut milk.  Our local Whole foods carry it from time to time, and so do local Latino markets.  We even have a screwdriver in the kitchen for busting them open.   But I’ve also become enamored with coconut sugar (I’m currently out, though)  To celebrate Angela’s choice, I’ll be making a coconut Chai breakfast cake–good excuse, right?

Monday:

Quinoa Italiana with asparagus

Tuesday:

Beef curry with coconut and cauliflower

Weds:

Nightshade stew with fennel

Thursday:

Orange halibut with broccoli

Friday:

leftovers–our Friday standby

Baked creations:

  • Chai breakfast cake
  • fruit crisp (maybe)
  • bread (maybe, depending on time)

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    I got your menu hooked up to the GF Swap. Your menu, as always, is great! Please, please, please share the Chai breakfast cake recipe. I swooned just from the thought of it! Mmmmm….

    Have a great week!

  3. I might have to try your quinoa recipe with the Lundberg gf couscous. I think the flavors would be great together.

    Quinoa Italiana sounds fabulous! I am bookmarking it for future consumption!

    And can’t we please, please, please have your coconut Chai breakfast cake recipe? (Were there ever 4 more tantalizing words than “coconut” “Chai” “breakfast” “cake”?? I’m dying here!)

    Hi Cheryl,
    My husband and I are trying the GF lifestyle (by necessity) and just found your sight. We loved the Quinoa Italiana with the asparagus (one of our favorite veggies). Looking forward to future healthy receipes. Thanks.
