We’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with popular Charlottesville food blogger Kath Younger of Kath Eats Real Food to bring you five easy recipes that use whole, real foods. These recipes are now posted on our website so you can add all the ingredients for each recipe into your shopping cart with one click.
Here is a message from Kath:
Greetings Relayers! Who is excited to eat real food?! My recipe style is simple ingredients mixed together in creative and unique ways to create healthy meals ready in minutes. These recipes range from filling morning oatmeal to a protein-packed salad to a simple stew flavored with local pork. Give the Dough Boy Smoothie a try for a new twist on a blended breakfast! Enjoy. – Kath
The whipped method produces a really creamy bowl of oats. The bananas basically disappear, so there are no chunks. Since banana is an emulsifier of sorts, this method suspends the oats into a thick, creamy consistency and the whole bowl is sweeter because the banana’s sweetness permeates throughout. This one is a Relay staff favorite!
The best thing about this recipe is the versatility of the ingredients. You can use fresh summertime okra, tomatoes, corn, zucchini, beans and shrimp OR you can use all frozen in the winter with canned stewed tomatoes and frozen shrimp and veggies. For the “grits” use real grits, brown rice or millet.
This bean and ham soup is thick and creamy. You can use any kind of meat you like or leave it out for a vegetarian bean soup.
This salad is incredibly easy to throw together. Simply cook the wheat berries ahead of time to make the process even faster!
Soaking the ingredients for this smoothie overnight make it incredibly doughy and super filling.
