1 3/4c almond flour
2/3c sugar
1 egg
zest of one lemon
1/8tsp salt
almond slices to top cookies (optional)

Heat oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Shape cookies out of about 1 Tbsp dough, and with wet fingers press dough ball on an oiled baking sheet (or use parchment paper). Top with an almond slice.

Bake cookies for 16 minutes until slightly browned around edges. Makes up to 24 cookies, depending on how big you make them. Store in airtight container for up to three days.

My experience: These are essentially amaretti cookies with lemon flavor instead of almond flavor. Eat within the first day for best quality.

This was so good I've made it twice so far! It's super easy and makes great leftovers. This is a simplified version of a recipe I got from The Fresh 20:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb bulk italian sausage (I used pork)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch broccolini or broccoli rabe, chopped
2 green bell peppers, diced
Juice of one lemon
1/2c chopped fresh basil
2 cups cooked rice, brown or white
salt and pepper to taste

The rice can be made ahead of time, but both times I made it I just made it in the rice cooker as I was chopping the vegetables. Use stock instead of water when cooking the rice for extra flavor.

  1. Heat a large saucepan over medium high heat and add olive oil and sausage. Cook until sausage is cooked through and slightly browned, chopping into small pieces with spatula as you cook.

  2. Add garlic, broccolini, bell peppers and a pinch of salt and cook until just tender for about 3 - 5 minutes.

  3. Turn off the heat and add lemon juice, basil and rice. Stir well and cover for a couple of minutes before serving to ensure peppers are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
