The Friday 5: Real food recipes #10

Friday 5 with YayYay's Kitchen Facebook banner

Welcome to this tenth Friday 5, a roundup of Recipes of the Day featured on YayYay’s Kitchen Facebook page in the last week.

From an unusual hummus to peanut butter fudge – Recipes of the Day from March 25-31, 2016

Are you a fan of edamame? My sweetheart loves it, so when I stirred up a batch of edamame and hemp heart hummus? Score! Another hit on the home front: My own asparagus quiche–first of the season. We also enjoyed kale and farro together this week, but didn’t get a chance to try Rachel’s luscious honey Dijon dressing. Next time!

Late this week, I comforted a sore throat and clogged sinuses with Shannon’s glowing turmeric lemonade, and I’m not waiting till I get another cold to enjoy it again. Yum! We’ve yet to sample the peanut butter fudge, but oh my,  weekend treat coming up.


We dipped rolled, warm stone ground corn tortillas in the edamame hummus with paprika dusting - Yum!

Each Friday you’ll find at least five recipes here, maybe six or seven, depending on how the foodie stars aligned. Most are vegetarian, some vegan. Occasionally the Recipe of the Day includes meat or meat stock. YayYay’s is a flexitarian whole-foods kitchen.

    We tried this recipie. It’s a nice sweet treat, but it’s not a peanut butter fudge substitute for me. Glad we tried it!

  2. The Turmeric Lemonade caught my eye. I would make it using freshly ground black pepper and add a snack containing fat (berries and whipped cream would work) to get the benefits of the turmeric.

    I use turmeric Golden Paste for arthritis and inflammation. Here;s the link if you are interested.

    Peanut butter fudge has been my favorite since I was a wee child. I have to say I’m skeptical about this recipe. C’mon, PB fudge made from chickpeas??? I’ll try it because it’s a healthier recipe than my longstanding fav, Who knows… I might just like it! 🙂

    • I know. Still, chickpeas are mild in flavor and easily take on the flavor of foods they’re cooked with. Then, of course, the texture when pureed is very peanut-butter-like. I haven’t tried this one yet, but looking forward to it.


  4. I don’t have any recipes to share, but thanks to your hint on massaging kale, we are now enjoying it raw in our salads. Yesterday I picked some kale and some young chard leaves and massaged them all. Then I added red sweet pepper and cucumber chunks, slivered almonds and borage flowers. I had just a bit of romaine left so I added a few leaves. I was bummed out that the aphids were all over the calendula — that’s never happened before — so I didn’t get to add the yellow and orange colors. I put half in a bowl for me and added some chicken chunks and a bit of crumbled bacon for flavor. That was dinner for me and it was delicious. Hubby had had his main meal, but he enjoyed his salad without the chicken.
