If you enjoy the traditional Hummus, adding peanut butter instead of the traditional Tahini paste, gives it a Southern twist. You can substitute de from sunflower seeds if you are allergic to nuts.

Make sure you rinse and drain the beans as much possible before using.

This variation of the classic PB&J sandwich is going out for those gourmands with severe Peanut allergy and for the parents that want to pack the classic sandwich in their kids school lunch boxes but are advised against it by their Peanut Free School(we serve a couple of them.) Peanut allergy is life threatening, I know because my son was born with this allergy and had never tried PB&J for the obvious reasons. The day that I made him his first SB&J sandwich his first reaction was- "where has this Sunbutter been all my life?(LOL). Now we keep a jar in the cupboard and serves as a good replacement for Peanut butter in most of my family recipes. BTW- this is such an easy recipe that even a four years old can make it!
What the heck are Shishito Peppers? These small, mild Japanese peppers are great for roasting, pan-frying and grilling. Their thin walls blister and char easily when roasted or grilled, taking on rich flavor that is delicious with coarse salt and lemon juice (my mouth is already watering). At The Real Food Academy, we love this simple way of broiling Shishito Peppers and usually plate them with a mild Tahini Sauce
. Don't forget to serve them right out of the oven, and offer your friends a cold one to sip while munching on them!

The story goes that Falafel, despite its strong connection with Israel, actually originates from Egypt, and was originally made from Faba beans. Its roots can be traced right back to the Christian of Egypt who were forbidden from eating meat during certain holidays and came up with a falafel-like alternative. This traditional recipe is full of flavor and texture. Serve it with Tatziki sauce and use it as an appetizer or in Pita bread with our Asian slaw
I had the opportunity of serving this Smoothie on our last presentation at Macy's Dadeland Mall as part of their event "Breakfast at Macy's" (a remake of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's). Everyone was fascinated with its flavor but most importantly, with the fact that adding Spinach and Avocado to a breakfast smoothie can improve the lasting feel of being nourished and energized throughout the morning. This is a simple recipe to make and it takes away the decision making of what to have for breakfast when you are in a hurry. Throw everything into the blender and go! You'll be satisfied for hours!!!
