Gojiberries (recipes)

Spinach salad


While all the peoplel drink their coffee and grab a sandwich for lunch, I snack on some dried fruit and wait patiently to go back home and eat. But if I haven’t cooked anything the night before, I need to make something quick and nutritious. Like this salad for example. Spinach has a lot of iron and protein, while goji berries are filled with betacarotene, and protein as well. Sesame seeds are a great source of calcium while grapeseed oil is rich in omega-3. The taste ? Delicious. I also love the chewy texture of the goji berries in my salad!

-3-4 handfuls of fresh spinach

-1/4 cup dried goji berries

-2 tbsp shoya

-2tbsp grapeseed oil

-2 tsp rice vinegar

-1 1/2 tbsp raw sesame seeds for sprinkling

Wash spinach well and chop in desirable size. Pour oil and toss. Add goji berries and shoyu. Mix everything together and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Enjoy!


 

Sweet, slightly tart and packed with nutrients, goji berries add that tasty je ne sais quoi to these scones. These Himalayan treats contain numerous amino acids, trace minerals, protein and antioxidants. As if that wasn’t enough, they also contain a significant amount of Vitamins A and C, B-complex vitamins, vitamin E and anti-inflammatory agents! Whew! That’s a lot of nutrition packed into one tiny berry! Talk about bang for your berry.

I used rice flour to make these scones gluten free, canola oil and rice milk to make them vegan, and goji berries, cinnamon and pecans to make them delicious! They have a traditional scone texture, while also retaining the perfect amount of moisture. What a tasty and nutritious way to start any day!

Goji Berry Pecan Scones (Gluten Free and Vegan!)
Makes 6 medium/large scones

2c rice flour
1tbsp aluminum free baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp cloves powder
¼ c goji berries
¼ c pecan pieces/chips
1/3 c canola oil
1/3 c agave nectar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/3 c rice, soy or almond milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine and mix together the dry ingredients (except for goji berries and pecans). In a separate bowl, beat together wet ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. The texture will be crumbly (this is normal!). Stir in goji berries and pecan pieces. Take a handful of dough and knead it together, shaping into a scone, and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet. If you notice the dough becoming too crumbly to form a scone, just add a splash of milk to the dough and continue to knead. After scones are lined up on the baking sheet, bake on the center rack for 20 minutes. Remove the scones promptly from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy

Goji Pancakes

1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 egg
2 - 3 tablespoons oil

1/2 cup Tibetan Goji Berries (soak over night)

Favourate fruit for topping
 

Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the milk and eggs. Mix well and try to get some of the lumps out of the batter. Don't worry about making it perfectly smooth. It will be fine.

Heat a skillet on medium heat. When heated, scoop the pancake batter recipe into the frying pan with a large spoon to make individual pancakes. The pan will probably only take 1 or two pancakes at a time. Cook on one side until the top begins to bubble, then flip over and cook on the other side.
