Ya'll, This. Was. Good. I found this recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie and modified it a little. I was so impressed with the simplicity of this recipe, as well as, how much it tasted like REAL cheesecake.
What you will need:
3 Cups Greek Yogurt
1 Cup or Package of Tofu
Dash of Salt
1 TBSP of Lemon Juice
10 TBSP of Maple Syrup
4 TSP of Quinoa Flour (it originally called for cornstarch)
1 Cup of Honey
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Spray a pan with coconut oil (you can use a pie crust and it should make two pie crust). It tasted great without a crust. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 50 minutes. It will still be a little gooey. Let it sit for 1 hour, then stick it in the fridge over night. That's all there is to it.
Now, I did try the mixture out of the oven fresh and out of the food processor. It was gross raw out of the food processor and was better out the oven. However, the longer it chills, the better it tasted.
If you little one does not have a soy allergy, this is great for them. My little guy kept stealing it out of my hands.
First of all, I have not been very good lately about blogging my recipes. Some times, by the time something is cooked, that is all I got. I do have several "good" ones that are go to recipes that my husband and I really do enjoy, and I do plan on blogging them soon.
However, this is a simple, easy sweet potato recipe. Sweet potatoes are complex carbs and a super food. I have even made cookies with them. Usually, I like to either go sweet (where I add coconut oil, cinnamon, turmeric, and honey) or spicy like I did above.
Sweet potatoes are more of texture then a taste if you ask me, so however you season them, is what gives them the real flavor. Some people are not about adding these ingredients to their sweet potato, but just try it once before you turn your nose up to it.
I found a recipe similar to this one, but you twice baked the potatoes into muffins. Let's be honest, ain't nobody got time for that.
Here is what you will need
1 Cooked Sweet Potato (I keep cooked sweet potatoes in the fridge for quick baby food or adult food, plus it takes them a while to go bad if I do not get to them immediately) *
2 TBSP of Plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 Fresh Jalapeño
1/4 Cup of Mozzarella Cheese*
*Not all sweet potatoes are the same size, so your toppings might vary based on size and preference
*I use mozzarella because it is one of the healthiest cheeses. You could you goat cheese or no cheese.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, zap in the microwave for about one minute and Ta Da. You now have healthy snack or side dish to a meal with complex carbs and protein (from the Greek Yogurt)
