Well today was off to a sloooow start on my part since last night I stayed up to watch the Villanova Wildcats win the March Madness NCAA national championship! Wooohooo go Wildcats! For those of you who missed this phenomenal game between Villanova and North Carolina, I have to tell you that it was truly a nail biter. At the end of the game the score was tie at 74 points. Then with less than one second left on the clock, Nova's Kris Jenkins released and hit a 3 pointer at the buzzer to win the championship! Talk about a dramatic finish to their season...take a look!!!
Congratulations to the Wildcats, it was a hell of a game!!!
OK so now that I have finally pulled my act together, today I am going to share with you my absolute NEWEST favorite snack/appetizer recipe, and guess what...it is super healthy for you! Yes you read it right, a yummy "snackatizer" that is filled with all kinds of heart healthy and antioxidant ingredients.
Take a look at this list!
For the filling...
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 T fresh gingerroot, peeled and minced
2 T fresh cilantro, chopped
3 scallions, sliced
1 T sesame oil
1 1/2 cups of low sodium black beans, rinsed
1 cup of Edamame's, shelled
one package of Goya Vegetable seasoning
a few splashes of low sodium soy sauce
2 T of canola oil
And for the sauce...
2 T low sodium soy sauce
1 T sriracha sauce
1 T honey
In a food processor pulse together the garlic, ginger, cilantro, scallions and sesame oil. Then add the edamame and black beans along with the seasoning package and a few splashes of soy sauce. Once all is blended into a paste like mixture, take your wonton wrappers and curve the edges of them with a pair of scissors so they are somewhat circular looking. Then add a dollop of the bean mixture, about one rounded tablespoon, to the center of each wrapper. With your finger wet the edges with water and close the wrappers up and seal them. I cinched them together with my fingers to give them that pot sticker pouch look.
Heat the oil in a pan until hot and add the little pouches to the pan. Be careful not to let them touch or they will stick together. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side and then remove from pan and let drain on a paper towel. In the meantime whisk together the three sauce ingredients and serve with the pot stickers.
Hope you are all enjoying this pretty spring day and don't forget to stop by tomorrow evening at 7pm for another Share Your Style link party!
