Here are some of our favorite employee recipes:
Stellar Salad Dressing
1 cup of your favorite herb (cilantro or parsley are our favorites!), roughly chopped
½ clove - fresh garlic
¼ cup - finely chopped onion
1 Tbsp. - Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp. - Quantum Nutritional Flakes
¼ Avocado or 2 Tbsp. Quantum Coconut Oil
3 Tbsp. - Organic apple cider vinegar
¼ - 1/3 cup – purified water
¼ tsp - fresh ground black or white pepper
Volcanic Pink Salt to taste
Add all ingredients except fresh herbs to a blender and blend until smooth. Add herbs and blend until desired consistency is reached. To make dressing thicker, add more avocado or Quantum Nutritional Flakes. Additional water can be used to thin the dressing.
Coco-Berry Whey Nuggets
10 Tbsp. - Quantum Whey Protein
5 Tbsp. - Organic fruit preserves (we love Strawberry, Raspberry, Black Cherry, and Orange Marmalade)
3 Tbsp. - Coconut sugar crystals
1 Tbsp. - Quantum Coconut Oil
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. To reduce stickiness, roll in additional coconut sugar crystals. Form into small balls and serve.
Cold-Busting Winter Elixir
1-inch piece - ginger root
1 - small lemon
3 Tbsp. - Quantum Canadian Honey
Peel and roughly chop ginger. Slice lemon, leaving the peel on. Place ginger and lemon into small, sealable container and cover with honey. Add a small amount to tea or warm water or eat by the spoonful to keep winter stresses at bay. Keep refrigerated.
1 ½ - 2 cups - coconut or almond milk
1 ½ tsp. - ground turmeric
¼ -½ tsp. - ground cinnamon
Pinch of Volcanic Pink Salt
1 Tbsp. - Quantum Coconut Oil
1 pinch - ground black pepper
Sweetener of choice (i.e. organic maple syrup, organic coconut sugar, or stevia to taste)
To a small saucepan, add coconut milk or almond milk, ground turmeric, cinnamon, Quantum Coconut Oil, black pepper, sweetener of choice, and Volcanic Pink Salt. Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch, but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.
Turn off heat and taste to adjust flavor. Add more sweetener to taste or more turmeric for intense flavor. Serve immediately, dividing between two glasses. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop until hot.
Power Tomato Soup - For our late night snackers
1 Tbsp. - Quantum Tomato
1 cup - hot water (purified)
To taste: Volcanic Pink Salt, Quantum Nutritional Flakes, fresh garlic, fresh thyme, rosemary, or basil.
Mix Quantum Tomato and hot water together, then heat in a pan until hot to the touch (but not boiling). Pour into a bowl and add seasonings to taste such as Volcanic Pink Salt, Quantum Nutritional Flakes, fresh garlic, or herbs such as thyme, rosemary, or basil. Enjoy!
