Indulge Me Please!! – Roasted Pineapple with Ice cream

You must eat this!!

ROASTED PINEAPPLE WITH VANILLA SOY ICE CREAM

I have, as of recently, developed a MASSIVE sweet tooth. It is my personal goal to find many delicious desserts that are not awful for me.

This is SOOOO good and super easy to make. If you do not try it, we can no longer be friends… sorry.

Feast on this:

Core and thinly slice into wedges 1 Pineapple. Brush both sides lightly with a mild flavored oil such as Safflower or Canola. Mix together 1 tsp. Allspice and 1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper and sprinkle over pineapple. Roast in 500 oven for 12 minutes. Remove and brush with the juice of 1 lime. Return to oven and broil 1-2 inches from heat for 4ish minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.

Throw it over a scoop of ice cream… I like vanilla soy. It’s the perfect amount of sweet.

Put in face 🙂

P.S If you haven’t noticed… I like roasting things.

Mmm, Mmm, HuMmmus

Now that I have legumes coming out of my ears, I’m making all things chickpeas and black beans.

It so happens, I just made some of the best hummus I believe I may have ever tasted, and now I MUST share. If you are a hummus lover as I am… you have got to try this. It sweet and spicy and wicked delicious!

I give you…

ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS… aaaaahhhhhhhhh

I was, literally, licking the food processor blades after I made this. I couldn’t get it into my face fast enough… safe, I know.

This is how the magic happened:

2 Cups Chickpeas (soaked and cooked, or canned), 3 roasted red peppers – skin removed, 3 T lemon Juice, 1 ½ T. Tahini, 1 clove garlic – minced, ½ tsp. cumin, ½ tsp. cayenne, ½ tsp. salt, 2 tsp. parsley flakes

Combine all ingredients in food processor.

Drizzle in some olive oil until desired consistency.

Disclaimer – this hummus is pretty zippy. If you are not a fan of heat I would recommend cutting the cayenne in half. Also, don’t cut your tongue on the  food processor blade. I found this on allrecipes.com
