Transforming Sourdough Bread: Nectarine and Fig Open-Faced Sandwich

IMG_0659

I had the chance to create many different dishes this past summer, but this one is by far my favorite. I took advantage of what summer has to offer: Californian figs and nectarines, paired with balsamic glaze. The slightly tart balsamic glaze goes perfectly with the sweet figs and nectarines! This open-faced sandwich can be a quick snack or a light lunch for a busy day. Although it may look fancy, it is extremely easy to prepare. Please do yourself a favor and treat yourself.

Avocado-Mango Coconut Smoothie

IMG_6388

A creamy avocado smoothie is a perfect refresher for either the beginning or middle of your day. It functions as a morning-pick me up or a post-workout drink. The mango and banana sweetens the smoothie a bit, while the taste of the almond-coconut milk matches the good fats from the avocado. I’ve been trying to manipulate avocados lately to find other ways to use them besides traditional guacamole, it’s amazing how many different ways you can use them! I hope you enjoy this version! (Make sure your avocado has ripened slightly, so you can taste all of that healthy fat!)

Rosemary-Pesto Bruschetta (Dining Hall)

IMG_4035

With only 4 ingredients, this crispy bruschetta is easy to make at the dining hall and tastes delicious. The nutty taste of the pesto is more flavorful after its been heated since the taste infuses throughout the oil. The pockets within the rosemary bread soak up the creamy pesto, creating a beautiful color and providing flavor in every bite. In addition, the tomatoes add some freshness and color to this bruschetta. Top with a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese, bake in the oven for 60 seconds, and enjoy your meal made in under 5 minutes!

Crispy Egg and Cheese Breakfast Flatbread (Dining Hall)

Brunch is definitely my favorite meal of the day, mostly because it involves having some type of comfort food! I had a little extra time to myself this past weekend since I don’t have any tests coming up, so I made a warm toasted flatbread in my dining hall. I chose to use only eggs, tomatoes and provolone cheese, but you can really choose any type of vegetable and cheese to go along with the bread–simply toast the entire flatbread and the melted cheese will satisfy your craving!
