Sweet & Savory

Being efficient in the kitchen is super important. With today’s busy schedule, if you’re going to take the time to make something whole, nutritious, a little more elaborate…..isn’t it best to stretch your time to get the most out of your meal? Re-using dishes/kitchen appliances, using the same ingredients, accessing the most nutrients possible? Yes, yes indeed!

So, this past week I decided to make sweet & savory Pie Crusts for two dishes:

Tart Crusts: Sweet & Savory
Tart Crusts: Sweet & Savory

A Zucchini & Tomato Tart & a Vegan coconut cream pie

WHAT!?!?!?!?! Yup, I’m telling you I used most of the same ingredients, re-used my food processor (not cleaning in between) and made two extremely different dishes. And here’s how.

Tart crusts!
Tart crusts!

Savory Tart Crust

10 graham crackers (small kind)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 small hand full of almonds
1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil

Put almonds in first, pulse until crumbled. Put the rest in a cuisine art and blend, pulsing until all is mixed. Press into a tart pan and bake 10 minutes at 375. I filled with a zucchini tart goodness, that I’ll delve into in another blog!

Sweet Tart Crust

11 graham crackers (small kind)
3 tablespoons raw coconut flakes
2 tablespoons of agave

Blend all in a cuisine art (the same one from above! No need to wash). Press into a pie pan and bake for 10-15 minutes at 375.

Bake at the same time, make two gorgeous dishes and save some time! Plus, the ingredients are simple, delicious and not processed.

Happy Baking!

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
