On The Menu..a Gluten Free Polenta Timballo..

Today’s lunch will be a timballo made of polenta, spinach, mozzarella, parmigiana, sun dried tomatoes..keeping in with my leftover theme..and combining ingredients that are leftover or may soon expire to make a delicious dish! Did I mention that it is gluten free .. (  the ingredients in my kitchen..check the labels of all your ingredients if you are sensitive to gluten)

 

Polenta Timballo

4 ounces fresh (or frozen spinach) washed, chopped

4 ounces fresh (or frozen) swiss chard, washed, chopped

8 ounces mozzarella

1/4 cup grated parmigiana reggiano cheese grated

5 sundried tomatoes chopped

8 black olives, pitted, chopped

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon shopped onion

8 ounces freshly made polenta (instant or regular)

 

Place olive oil in saute pan, place in garlic clove, onion, saute for 2 minutes, then place in  spinach and swiss chard,saute till desired tenderness. Set aside. Cut mozzarella into small cubes. To already made polenta, add in spinach/swiss chard mixture (remove garlic cloves), mozzarella cubes, sundried tomatoes, olives, grated parmigiana reggiano cheese. Stir. When well blended, cover 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper, then add in polenta mixture to pan. If desired grate some parmigiana reggiano on top before placing in oven, Bake in oven that has been preheated to 425 degrees for 50 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool till firm and serve still slightly warm. Also great the day after!

 

I am still home in the mountains of Abruzzo,so when Alfonso and I eat our lunch you can be sure a glass of Trebbiano D’Abruzzo will be paired with this dish

While traveling all over and filming my new PBS TV Show here in Italy I am able to keep in touch all over the world using my Dual Global Mobile..no incoming call charges..so you can use that extra money you save on communication on food..no matter where you are!

Flavors Make the Best Souvenirs-Recipe Using Leftover Torrone

copyright 2014 Art of Living, PrimaMedia,Inc/Maria Liberati

I am collecting  souvenirs of the winter months here in the mountains of Abruzzo, Italy….souvenirs of the heart,mind and taste… flavors are my way of remembering special days..and for the last few weeks I have been creating memories of the days after the Christmas Holidays using the leftover foods from the Holidays..as leftovers are just as precious as when they were not… leftovers.

Cheesecake ‘Torronata’

(the perfect way to make use of leftover torrone before it is out of date)

Crust:

16 ounces crushed savoiardi

4 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar

Filling:

8 ounces of cream cheese (light or regular)

4 ounces ricotta cheese

4 ounces plain or vanilla flavored yogurt (light or regular or Greek)

1/3 cup sugar-1/2 cup ( I used 1/3 cup sugar because torrone and crust adds sweetness but you can add more if you prefer sweeter cake)

2 eggs

Juice of one lemon

1/2 tsp of pure vanilla

8 ounces hard or soft torrone (any flavor)

 

For crust- place savoiardi in food processor till finely crushed or the consistency of bread crumbs, add in sugar. Place in pie pan and pour melted butter on top. With hands mix in butter till well blended then press mixture in form of crust in pie pan with hands press into pan, cover bottom and sides of pan.

 

For filling:

Separate eggs. Place yolks in bowl with sugar, beat till creamy and well blended. Then add in yogurt, ricotta, vanilla ,lemon juice. blend well. Then stir in torrone that has been broke into small pieces. Pour mix into pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until firm..

Words are Food For the Soul!

copyright 2014 Art of Living, PrimaMedia,Inc/Maria Liberati

 

Words  are food for the soul..and serving up my new favorite word for today.. HYGGE

 

it is a  Danish word..it signifies the sentiments necessary for the winter months.. Hygge ..means cozy.. in the sense of being cozy at home with candles, warm blankets, possibly also snuggled up with a cup of hot cocoa… but it relates to more than just that it also implies a type of behavior of the art of creating intimacy and conviviality.. with friends and/or family…all in one word of expression!

 

Speaking of convivial events….

*March 5th and March 12th ..Hope to see you at my Delaware Valley College events-cooking demos, dinners,,registration is required http://www.delval.edu/continuing-and-professional-studies/non-credit-certificates-and-courses/culinary-and-food

copyright 2014 Art of Living, PrimaMedia,Inc/Maria Liberati

Buona La Befana

 

Today for La Befana, planning a light menu..but one of my favorite desserts is a Tiramisu Panettone..especially since we have amassed enough panettone during the Christmas Holidays for a small village! It is an easy recipe, but delicious also, and no one will ever guess it was made from left over anything,.panettone..and what a great way to recycle food..too precious to waste

Tiramisu Panettone

Cut the panettone into 1 inch slices.  In a  separate bowl mix a liquid of 1/4 cup rum to 1/8 cup water, brush on to each slice with a pastry brush. In another bowl mix 8 ounces mascarpone and 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp real vanilla. Blend till cream is smooth. Top each slice with this cream and dust with powdered cocoa,serve

 

And La Befana  would agree that while traveling around it is always handy to have a reliable and economical means of communication and Dual Global Mobile is is the perfect solution with its Dual Sim Card. There are no charges for incoming calls! Check it out

History of Moringa Oleifera in Treating Malnutrition

 

Guest Post: Edrick Hypolite

 

Moringa Oleifera is the commonly grown species of the bigger genus known as Moringa in English. It is also common to hear it being referred to as Drumstick Tree. This plant grows in arid and semi-arid areas due to its drought-resistant nature. Moringa is naturally found in plenty in the lower slopes of the Himalayas in Northwest of India. It is also grown domestically in tropical and subtropical regions where it is used as a vegetable, water purifier, and as a source of medicine for a variety of human diseases and conditions.

Regions Where Moringa Has Historically been used as a Relief to Malnutrition

Africa- the majority of African countries are facing drought that leaves the population without access to adequate food. Given that most of the people are poor and cannot afford commercial foods; wild and natural alternatives such as Moringa have been used to stave off starvation. In Africa, the leaves are the most widely eaten parts since they are viewed just like the other common domestic vegetables.

Asia- countries like Cambodia, India, Philippines and Sri Lanka rely on Moringa for food during dry seasons.

Moringa Oleifera in Malnutrition Treatment

Moringa has been used as a source of food from ancient times and still finds greater use among communities that grow it. Both in the past and present, Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition in areas that suffer rainfall shortage. Thanks to its drought resistance, the plant can sprout and grow to maturity in climates where other forms of food crops cannot survive. The drumstick tree has been a source of relief for infants and lactating mothers who would have otherwise died of starvation.

No less than five global NGOs have ascertained the plant’s nutritional value and acts as a versatile source of relief. It has been accurately established that Moringa leaves’ powder was and still continues to be used in dire situations of starvation.

Why Moringa Against Starvation?

In the tropical and subtropical climates, there is always scarce rainfall that can hardly support viable agricultural activities. In these climates, the Moringa tree can survive and even bring out maximum foliage during the dry season. This is when it comes out as a much-needed relief to the masses who cannot afford food from the market.

The Edible Parts of Moringa

The Moringa parts that are used for consumption include mature seeds, roots, leaves, oil from the mature seeds, and the immature pods commonly known as drumsticks.

How Moringa Treats Malnutrition

Moringa has been used successfully to boost the immunity of lactating mothers and infants thus evading the devastating end results of malnutrition. People facing hunger are at higher risks of getting diseases due to their potentially low immunity. In these cases, Moringa can be used as an alternative medicine. The fact that the plant contains nutrients and elements of antibiotics means that it is ideal for treating malnutrition, effectively.

Advantages of Moringa in Treating Malnutrition

●It is drought resistant and grows very fast.

●A tested and proven food source; even the U.N. featured it in the September 2014 agricultural showcase.

●It has numerous nutrients. It is a very rich source of vitamin A in addition to significant quantities of iron, proteins, magnesium, and zinc.

●The powder of dried moringa leaves is very nutritious to weaning infants who may be faced with starvation

●Moringa is rich in antioxidants.

How Moringa is Used in the U.S

The U.S. does not fall into the category of countries that are frequently hit by starvation, but the citizens still use Moringa for various purposes. In ancient American society, Moringa was used as a painkiller, drying agent and as a germ-killer. In modern medicine, much research has pointed to possibilities that Moringa can be used to cure anemia, rheumatism, and diabetes among other conditions. It is also thought to be an alternative relief to most fungal, viral and parasitic infections.

Ground into capsules, Moringa is also useful as a nutritional supplement. It is popular among vegans, athletes, and numerous others. It is also easy to find online retailers such as MoringaUSA that distribute Moringa Oleifera capsules.

Conclusion

There are not many better alternatives to evade the pangs of malnutrition in drought-stricken areas than Moringa. First, it is inexpensive and does not need the tending that is given to other food crops. It is very rich in terms of nutrients and has been proven to be safe for human consumption. The advantages of this plant are not just limited to combating malnutrition but has so many health benefits including the prevention of a couple of diseases where modern medicine has not succeeded. We can confidently say that Moringa has enormous potential to help address the effects of malnutrition and general food shortage.

Where to Eat..Traveling in the USA

 

copyright 2014 Maria Liberat/Art of Living,PrimaMedia,Inc

Traveling for the Holidays is a great way to see the USA at its’ best….While traveling and discovering the Northeastern part of the United States you certainly need to eat a little something to keep those hunger pangs at bay. And knowing just where to eat while traveling is definitely important. But also important is being able to stay in touch with friends and family back home, or maybe you need to keep in touch with work colleagues.

While traveling throughout Boston, Maine, NYC and Philadelphia, I was able to find some of the most eclectic restaurants while traveling with my Dual Global SIM phone at hand. I was able to locate my choice of restaurants. And calls were returned but there were no incoming call charges. I was able to use that extra money towards discovering more foodie places. Here is a short list I put together of some interesting and delicious spots to savor while traveling. The following are a few Italian eateries from some of the oldest states in America.

 

If you make it over to “The Pine Tree State” this summer, you might want to check out Azure Cafe located in Freeport, Maine. Their menu contains over 100 different selections of wine, including some from Wine Spectator’s “Top 100” wine list. You can choose from the lighter lunch menu of seafood, Italian cuisine, sandwiches, soups, and salads, or you can go in for dinner to enjoy a heartier meal. Kelly Patrick Farrin, sous chef at Azure, was crowned 2010’s Maine Lobster Chef of the Year, so you may want to select from their Lobster Azure Insalate, Fresh Maine Lobster Roll, Steamed Maine Lobster Dinner, or their Maine Seafood Risotto.

While walking the streets of Boston, Mass., a little place called Cantina Italiana might catch your eye on Hanover Street. It began in 1931, naming it the oldest restaurant in the North End. It is now owned by Chef Fiore Colella, who owns another restaurant nearby called Ristorante Fiore, and his brother, Chuck Colella, is the executive chef. With a menu of traditional Italian pizzas, pastas, and more, you may find it difficult to decide on something and go for the “Chef’s Special of the Day.” Reviews from newcomers and regulars, alike, boast great service and food.

 

The Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village, N.Y., is a place for food, entertainment, and artists. Opened in 1977 by three artists, the café’s extensive menu includes some Italian meals, such as ravioli, but also incorporates French and American cuisine. The entertainment includes musical guests, poetry, storytelling, and art exhibitions. Take a look at the scheduled events and reserve tickets to make sure you will get in on the fun.

the fun.

If you’re looking for a little entertainment with your meal, you may want to check out Bistro Romano in Philadelphia, Pa. There are murder mystery dinner theatre performances on Friday and Saturday nights for those customers who like a little spice with their meals, but tickets must be purchased beforehand. You can skip the theatre if you prefer a more soothing atmosphere during the weekend and listen to Craig Satchell playing the piano, as he has for the past sixteen years. They have an extensive menu with special prices on selections Monday through Thursday, and catering and delivery are also available.

 

 

 

Use your Dual Global Mobile Sim Products and there are NO incoming call charges on that cell phone!

Do you know of any other restaurants we should add to this list or some great finds you have found while traveling? Have you used Dual Global Mobile Products while traveling? Would love to hear all about it.
