Ingredients:

1 package of edible flowers

1 container or 4 cups of chicken stock

3 lemons (one for juice & zesting and two for slices to go on top)

1 leek, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

1 zucchini, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

2 chicken breasts, shredded

1 1/2 cup of peas

10 leaves of basil

1 teaspoon of herbs de provence

salt & pepper

2 cups of cooked quinoa

Directions:

1. Saute in olive oil the carrots and leeks for 5 minutes. In the last 3o second add in the garlic.

2. Add in the herbs de provence, salt, pepper, and chicken stock. Simmer on low for 15 minutes.

3. Add in the lemon juice & zest from one lemon, peas, chicken, and zucchini. Cook just for 3 minutes so none of those ingredients get soggy.

4. In a bowl put 1/4 cup of quinoa, and top soup on top.

5. Top soup with a basil leaf, edible flower, and lemon wedge.

 

Dessert: Chocolate Hazelnut Banana “Ice Cream”

I’m sure you all have heard of the frozen banana in blender, turns into ice cream trick. It really is good. Abby thought it would be fun to add her favorite snack which are Justine’s Chocolate Hazlenut packets. Really does add a lot of flavor!

Ingredients:

3-4 ripe bananas

4 packages of Justine’s Chocolate Hazlenut packets

Directions:

Slice the ripe bananas and lay slices on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Let freeze for at least 4 hours.

2. Put bananas slices and chocolate hazlenut in blender or food processor.

3. Blend and serve! We did have to throw in 1-2 tablespoons of milk (any kind would do) to get it to move around easier in the blender.

4. Top with edible flowers and if you would like honey fried bananas.
