Spicy Cilantro Lime Pesto w Cashews

Spicy Cilantro Lime Pesto with Cashews ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cilantro #pesto #recipe

Who says basil should get all the pesto glory? I love to mix up pestos with all sorts of other fresh herbs … and cilantro has to be my #1 favorite. This zesty pesto goes well in anything Mexican: salsas, enchilada sauce, rice, beans … or slather it on chicken, fish, steak, burgers, quesadillas … it’s […]


Spicy Cashew Red Pepper Dip

Spicy Cashew Red Pepper Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hot #pepper #dip #recipe

Roasted sweet mini peppers with toasted sweet cherry and grape tomatoes, creamy cashews, (of course!) garlic and a bit of serrano pepper to give it a kick, this dip has only a few ingredients, but it packs a lot of flavor. I had an interesting dilemma that led to this dip. First, I had over-purchased […]


Cilantro Cashew Green Tomato Salsa

Cilantro Cashew Green Tomato Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #cilantro #salsa #recipe

For those of you that are bored with the same old salsas … this one is bold, spicy, with LOTS of cilantro flavor and a lovely creamy, nutty undertone from ground cashews. We have a monthly breakfast burrito event at work … I always bring the salsa and the queso. As much as I love salsa and […]


Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad

Vietnamese Pulled Pork Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #cabbage #pork #salad #recipe

Adapted from Peachy Palate I had a bit of BBQ pulled pork that I made for my young adult kids that was left after they were done enjoying their sandwiches. Once they’re done, they’re done. There’s no eating the leftovers, so I stashed the leftover pulled pork in a freezer-safe container in the freezer until I had […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews

Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spiced #nut #recipe

Adapted slightly from Vitamin Sunshine It’s New Year’s Day. Wow. Another year has flown by us … another year of new beginnings ahead of us. Changes are afoot in my life. Not large, sweeping changes, just small ones, in the grand scheme of things, but as I get older, changes like a reorganization at work and […]


The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich

The Mighty Denver Breakfast Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Breakfast #Recipe

Think Denver omelet in a sandwich, kicked up a notch in flavor with some marvelously melty Havarti cheese, a slice of juicy red garden tomato and a good schmear of smoky Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce. When I heard that the awesome Swedish Pancake Pan from Swiss Diamond was on its way to my house, […]


Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Havarti Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

with Havarti Cheese and Mixed Greens I wish I could think of a shorter name for this sandwich … I pondered it long and hard and eventually I just gave up. It’s just got too many good things inside it! The Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce is the star, the flavor burst that makes […]


Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce

Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sauce #recipe

I have seen many cashew cream sauces on vegan sites and was always curious to know what a cashew cream sauce actually tastes like. So when I found myself with a collection of beautiful peppers from my mom and dad’s garden and a can of roasted cashews in my cupboard, I decided it was time […]


Toasted Marshmallow Cashew Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Toasted Marshmallow Cashew Chocolate Zucchini Cake ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cake #recipe

A rich decadent chocolate cake topped with toasty marshmallows, salty cashews and chocolate chips that has some deceptively healthy ingredients “hiding” inside. I’ve been wanting to “dress up” my chocolate zucchini cake and thinking of several different variations. This one was a Rocky Road inspired. I’m not really a fan of Rocky Road ice cream, […]
