Seared Sesame Tuna

A slice of tuna pressed in sesame seeds, seared, and folded over bamboo rice. Dressed with wasabi and a honey soy reduction.

Begin by slicing your sushi grade tuna filet into strips. Pressing the slice of tuna into the sesame seeds, cover one side completely. Sear the tuna over the stove in a pan sprinkled with Olive Oil, sesame side down. After your tuna has cooked half way through, slowly fold the tuna to enclose a ball of Bamboo rice. Over low heat in a separate sauce pan, combine soy sauce and honey. Stir and watch the sauce begin to thicken. Remove the sauce pan from heat and allow it to cool. As a meal, choose a crunch green or colorful vegetable like roasted carrots or squash to accompany this tuna filet and bamboo rice combo! Most importantly, Enjoy!

Sausage & Spinach

A warm bite of vegetarian sausage & spinach,
 topped with hollandaise & hot sauce,
accompanied by a cold wheat berry salad.
Fire up your grill allowing your sausage bites to be nice and crisp on top and bottom. In a separate pan, sauté the spinach with olive oil and sea salt. Top it off with hollandaise and a drop of hot sauce. Our first experience with this bite was during a Saturday morning brunch. We also served english muffins, eggs over easy, sautéd peppers & onions, and homemade wheat berry salad.
