This month we have 3 healthy, whole food recipes. Grilled Steak with Orange Salsa - the marinade ensures a steak that is moist and full of flavor, while the citrus salsa adds a little zing - no need for that heavy steak sauce. Next, we have Chocolate Banana Oat Muffins, great for breakfast or a healthy snack. And finally, we have some incredible Deluxe Peanut Butter Sandwiches perfect for lunch boxes or a quick snack for the kids (grownups will love them, too).
Grilled Steak with Orange Salsa
Makes 4 servings
1/2 C of soy sauce
1/2 C green onions, chopped and divided
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/8 tsp hot sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 lbs. boneless sirloin steak, 1 inch thick
2 oranges, peeled, sectioned and chopped
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp lemon, chopped
1 tbsp lime, chopped
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cilantro
1 tsp jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 tsp lemon peel, grated
1/2 tsp lime peel, grated
1/8 tsp salt
Place the soy sauce, 1/4 C of green onions, the lime juice, brown sugar, hot sauce and garlic into a sealable bag.
Seal the bag and shake to combine.
Add the steak, seal and turn to coat the steak well. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight, turning the bag occasionally.
Heat the grill to medium heat.
Remove the steak from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the steak for 5 minutes then turn.
Continue grilling for 5 additional minutes or until the steaks internal temperature reaches 160 degrees for medium done.*
Place the remaining ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Allow the steak to cool enough to slice across the grain. Serve the salsa over the slices of steak.
*To grill the steak to medium rare, the meat thermometer should read 145 degrees F, and 170 degrees F for well-done.
Chocolate Banana Oat Muffins
2 cups oat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup Sucanat or Rapadura
1 free range or organic egg
1/4-cup coconut oil or melted butter
1/4-cup organic milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
Muffin cup liners
Mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl mix together the sugar, oil, milk, egg, vanilla, chocolate syrup and banana.
Be sure to mix these together well so the egg is completely mixed in. Pour the flour mixture into the banana mixture.
Mix until all the dry ingredients are completely moistened. Place a muffin cup liner in each reservoir.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full of the batter. Bake 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Deluxe Peanut Butter Sandwiches
2/3-cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 (3 oz) of a package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1/2 cup shredded carrot
8 slices your favorite whole grain bread (the more seeds, the better the flavor)
In a bowl, combine peanut butter and cream cheese. Add the pineapple pieces and the shredded carrot. Spread the peanut butter/cream cheese mixture on the bread. For a truly healthy snack, cut sandwiches in half or quarters. Can be made ahead and refrigerated for several hours.
