Dishing Up the Dirt

Avocado Toast with Pomegranates, Radishes & Cashew Cream

Sometimes my favorite recipes are non recipes. They are staple meals that I return to time and time again without following any measurements or strict rules.

I’m definitely someone who loves any excuse to stand in front of the stove, sip on a beer and prepare an elegant farm fresh dinner. Lunchtime however, is a different story. I love throwing things together as quickly as possible so we can get back to farm chores ASAP. As the farm season picks up you’ll start noticing simple meals like avocado toast or roasted veggies with pesto more frequently here. Don’t fret, there will be plenty of elegant meals too, but simple no fuss recipes are my goal for the 2015 season.  There will also be an increase in egg dishes since our hens are becoming big sisters to 40 baby chicks on Friday. Yes, our farm family is growing and it’s growing fast!

We love our little ladies and we hope they adjust to life as big sisters without any major hiccups. We’re keeping the older chickens away from the babies for a few months but they’ll all get to know each other pretty well once the separation period is over. Fingers crossed they love each other!

Anyhow, with all the craziness of the farm slowly waking up from her winter slumber we are loving simple meals like this killer avocado toast. I’ve posted the recipe on instagram a few times already this week (this is my 7th day in a row eating it) and I have no intention of stopping until the stash of pomegranates I bought at the store is gone-I went a little overboard so we’ve still got a while!

Recently, I’ve been keeping a big batch of cashew cream in the fridge so I can spoon feed it to myself drizzle it on our daily toast. It adds a lovely creaminess and tang which takes this simple meal to the next level. I should also note that whenever I make cashew cream (or any sauce for that matter) I make a large batch to keep it in the fridge all week long to drizzle on everything from toast to veggies and grains. It makes meal prep so much easier when sauces (and beans/grains) are precooked earlier in the week. Try it! You’ll thank me later when you have more time to sip on wine and catch up with your family.

I hope you all love this simple yet elegant lunch as much as we do. If you prepare your cashew cream sauce earlier in the week this meal is on the table in 5 minutes flat. Taylor timed me! Bon appétit.
