Delicious After Run Meal or Snack

Our Newton Chef, Justin Cogley (Food & Wine’s Best New Chef 2013).  Has developed a great recipe to help you recover this summer with a high protein and tasty snack which will taste great after any run.

Here’s the recipe.

Chef tip.

With a few of these easy recipes you can make a simple sandwich into something refreshing and tasty. I used Salmon since it is going strong right now, but you could sub. Halibut, Chicken, or even Avocado.

 Pine nut mayonnaise

1/2 cup raw pine nuts, soaked in hot water for 2 hours

1/2 cup of the soaking liquid

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

In a blender, combine the pine nuts, water, olive oil, and lemon juice and blend until smooth. around 3 min. The mixture will thicken as it sits. Use or store in refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Raw kale, carrot, golden raisin slaw

3 bunches of kale, stem off, washed, dried and sliced

1 carrot peeled and sliced thin

Sesame dressing

3 TBSP rice vinegar

2 TBSP dark sesame oil

1 TBSP canola or light olive oil

splash of soy sauce

2 TBSP sesame seeds

1/4 cup golden raisins

Mix all together to form a broken vinaigrette. Check seasoning. Next fold in the Golden Raisins ( adding the golden raisins adds some nice sweetness)

Since melons are just coming into season. This quick drink is very refreshing.

Melon, Celery, Ginger, Apple

2 Cups chopped french melon (or your favorite)

1 Granny smith apple, peeled and chopped

2 celery stalk

small knob of ginger ( peeled and chopped)

Chef tip. Peeling ginger with a spoon works so well!

1/2 cup fresh OJ

juice of one lime

12 mint leaves

1 cup crushed ice

Put the first four ingredients through a juicer. (alternately blend in a high speed blender and strain) Next, add the juice into a small pitcher and pour in fresh OJ and the lime juice.

Crush the mint leaves with the ice and add to the pitcher. Stir and enjoy.
