Walnut Lemon Dressing Over Grilled Vegetables

No Comments 28 July 2010

Vinaigrettes come and go, but this walnut dressing is a tasty  and healthy addition to a grilled vegetable platter. Walnuts contain polyphenols and other anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids. These help in boosting memory, behavioral skills and even support and keep the nervous system healthy.  Research on mice that were kept on a walnut mixed feed, that is equivalent to a human consuming 7-9 walnuts daily has shown remarkable results in age-related motor skills and improved cognitive shortfalls and improved memory.

Lets start  adding walnuts to our family recipes.  This walnut-lemon dressing is a great place to start!

    • 2  zucchini, sliced diagonally 1/3 inch thick
    • 1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, stemmed
    • 1/2 pound thick asparagus, peeled
    • 1 red onion, sliced 1/3 inch thick
    • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 cup walnuts
    • 1 small shallot, very finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Light a grill. Brush the zucchini, mushrooms, asparagus and onion with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the vegetables over high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred in spots and tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer the grilled vegetables to a serving platter.
  2. Meanwhile, spread the walnuts in a pie plate and toast for about 12 minutes, until fragrant. Let cool completely.
  3. Transfer the toasted walnuts to a food processor. Add the shallot, thyme, lemon juice, lemon zest and the 1/2 cup of olive oil and pulse until the nuts are coarsely chopped. Season the dressing with salt and pepper and drizzle over the grilled vegetables. Serve.

Bulgur Wheat Salad with Zucchini and Herb Vinaigrette

No Comments 28 July 2010

I have been trying to dig up some new summer salads to serve and I think I hit the jackpot with this refreshing crunchy combo  that I found

on Ronni Fein’s blog.

I am adding this salad to this week’s menu – without the cheese so I can serve it late Saturday afternoon and not worry that  Shabbat passerbys may have had a meat lunch and wont be able to eat it. Let me know if you decide to try it too!

1 cup fine grain bulgur wheat

1-1/2 cups boiling water

1 large ripe tomato, chopped into bite size pieces

1 small, slim zucchini, diced

assorted colored peppers, chopped, (optional)

1 medium cucumber, peeled, deseeded and diced

2 scallions, chopped, optional

3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, optional

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, oregano, savory or marjoram leaves (or a mixture of herbs)

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

3-4 tablespoons lemon juice

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Place the bulgur in a bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Stir and let rest for about 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed. Add the tomato, zucchini, cucumber and optional scallions and cheese. Sprinkle with the herbs. Toss ingredients to distribute them evenly. Add the olive oil and 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Toss the salad, taste and add more lemon juice if desired, plus salt and pepper to taste. Best to let rest for 15 minutes before serving (at room temp). Makes 4-6 servings

Health Benefits of Juicing

Being a vegetarian for the last 23 years has forced me to look into

different diets and ways to eat right and stay healthy. Recently my appetite

has decreased, but as the day went along I was feeling tired and would have

cravings late at night. I was looking for an easy and effective way to do

something good for my body and a way to stop the night cravings. Juicing in

the morning and mid day proved to be a great help. Therefore I would like to

share some benefits of juicing with all of The Jewish Hostess readers.

The many health benefits of juicing far exceed those of eating solid fruits and

vegetables.

For one thing, the body can quickly absorb larger amounts of

nutrients from juices than from solid foods because the process of digestion

that is necessary when you eat whole foods is bypassed. Raw fruits and

vegetables contain many substances that enhance health, and juicing

benefits the body by providing the most concentrated and readily absorbed

source of these substances.

Another one of the major health benefits of juicing is that it is an easy way

to get beneficial enzymes, which are primarily found in raw foods, into

the body. Enzymes in fresh fruits and vegetables have the vital role of

converting food into body tissue and energy. Enzymes are also involved in

metabolism, so one of the more valuable health benefits of juicing is that it

can increase metabolic rate. Juicing also ensures that the body is getting

sufficient amounts of phytochemicals, substances in plants that are

considered among the most powerful ways to fight disease. While most

people do not eat enough raw fruits and vegetables to obtain the amount of

phytochemicals that would make a difference, it is relatively easy to drink

enough juice to obtain sufficient amounts of these powerful nutrients. In

addition, antioxidants and other immune enhancing properties are

concentrated in juices.

Juicing can therefore help to accelerate recovery from illness. In fact, juicing

with specific combinations of fruits or vegetables can target particular

conditions and improve or alleviate symptoms.

Among the most interesting health benefits of juicing are its anti-aging

benefits and its potential for alleviating symptoms of depression. The

effects of juicing on depression are accomplished by providing a

concentrated source of minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron, calcium,

and folic acid. Deficiencies of these nutrients are associated with symptoms

of depression.

Further, the concentration of antioxidants in juices combats the

damaging effects that free radicals have on skin and muscle. Juicing can

help keep skin free from wrinkles and muscles well toned. In addition,

increasing the intake of antioxidants by juicing can slow the onset of age-

related illnesses.

Juicing is relatively cost effective and convenient. By staying

healthy as a result of increasing your intake of fresh juices, you can also

reduce the need for expensive medications. Since there are no side effects

associated with juicing, you can drink as much juice as you are able to

tolerate, thereby maximizing health benefits. There are many tasty

combinations of fruits and vegetables, and the variety of juices that can be

prepared are likely to keep you in the habit of juicing once you realize the

many health benefits that doing so can provide.

In addition, fruit and vegetable juices are good sources of the traditional

nutrients. Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, etc.) provide healthy portions of

vitamin C. Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of

beta carotene. A number of green juices are a good source of vitamin E.

Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper,

potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium, which are bound by the plant in

a form that is most easily assimilated during digestion.

Plus, since juicing removes the indigestible fiber, these nutrients are

available to the body in much larger quantities than if the piece of fruit or

vegetable was eaten whole. For example, because many of the nutrients are

trapped in the fiber, when you eat a raw carrot, you are only able to

assimilate about 1% of the available beta carotene. When a carrot is juiced,

removing the fiber, nearly 100% of the beta carotene can be assimilated.

Finally, fruits and vegetables provide one more substance that is absolutely

essential for good health – water. More than 65% of most of the cells in the

human body are made of water, and in some tissues, for example the brain,

the cells can be made up of as much as 80% water. Water is absolutely

essential for good health, yet most people don’t consume enough water each

day. Plus, many of the fluids we do drink, coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcoholic

beverages and artificially flavored drinks each contain substances that

require extra water for your body to eliminate. Fruit and vegetable juices are

free of these unneeded substances and are full of pure, clean water.
