Ingredients
  1. 1½ cups ricotta - use a brand like Calabro that is dryer and your result will be better
  2. 1 large egg
  3. ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg - Badia brand under one dollar for 3 whole nutmegs
  4. 1 lemon for zesting
  5. ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  6. 2 tablespoons flour
  7. sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  8. olive oil
Instructions
  1. Blend the ricotta, egg, nutmeg, ½ teaspoon lemon zest, Parmesan, flour, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper until a thick batter forms.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and use a big spoon to make dollops of mixture in the pan - I like to make many, small fritters as they are easier to flip over. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, peek under the edge and if nicely browned, carefully turn and cook on other side until softly firm to touch and golden brown.
  3. Serve plain or with a minced grape tomato salad with olive oil and balsamic.

Ingredients
  1. 12 eggs
  2. 2 avocados
  3. 1 tsp garlic powder
  4. 1/2 tsp onion powder
  5. 1/2 tsp white pepper
  6. 1/4 tsp salt
  7. 2 tsp mustard
  8. 1 tsp Frank's hot sauce,tabasco or Tapatio
  9. 1 Tbsp garlic chili sauce
  10. 1 tsp greek yogurt (opt)
  11. 2 Tbsp lime juice
  12. 2 green onions
Instructions
  1. 1. Hard boil the eggs, using your own method, or boil for 9 minutes, then let them sit in cold water for 10 minutes.
  2. 2. When cool, slide the eggs lengthwise and remove the yolks.
  3. 3. Mix all other ingredients, except egg whites, using a blender, mixer, or food processor to a creamy consistency.
  4. 4. Fill the egg whites with the mixture. Garnish as you wish with a dash of tabasco, salt and pepper.
Notes
  1. Optional to use the yolks or not. Eggs in the daily diet, even with yolks, have been proven to have no impact on cholesterol level. The yolks also possess good fats like lecithin, so you can include guiltfree.
