Croquettes..you mean croquet?

Hi lovlies! I’ve been an awfully lazy blogger. Here’s a quick recap of my past 24 hours:

Dinner last night was sooo good! Salads, Black-Eyed Pea Croquettes, Braised Daikon, and Lundberg Wild Rice:

The Croquettes were SO good!! I have to share the recipe 🙂

Black Eyed Pea Croquettes

(Adapted from The Kind Diet)


  • 2 cups black eyed peas, soaked overnight in enough water to cover by an inch
  • 2 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • EVOO
  • Barley-Dijon Dipping Sauce Glaze (recipe below)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Drain peas in a colander for half an hour, then transfer them to a food processor. Add chopped parsley, cumin, and Bragg’s and pulse until beans are shredded but not into a pulp.
  3. Use your hands to shape the mixture into small UFO-shaped things – think of an oval.
  4. Place croquettes on well-EVOO’d baking sheet and coat each generously with EVOO (generously!).
  5. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, or until bottoms are well-browned and tops are crispy, firm-feeling, and browning.
  6. Let cool for about 10 minutes to firm up.
  7. Drizzle generously with Barley-Dijon Dipping Sauce Glaze and enjoy! 🙂 Yum yum

Barley-Dijon Dipping Sauce Glaze

(Adapted from The Kind Diet)


  • 1/2 cup barley malt syrup
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard


  1. Put syrup and mustard in a small saucepan and heat over very low heat, stirring continuously. It’s ready when little bubbles start to come to the surface 🙂 Mmmm.
  2. Drizzle generously over the croquettes before serving, and put out on the table for dippage 🙂

Today, I slept in a wittle (I was so tired!) and was awfully sore, so I decided today would be one of my rest days. I wasn’t too hungry, so brekkie was some juicy fresh fruit (1/2 grapefruit, strawberries, and cherries 🙂 ) and cinnamon-raisin Ezekiel sprouted grain toast with some apple spread:

Lunch was just as yummy 🙂 Leftovers make the best lunch! Salad with some crunchy veggies, the Croquettes, Daikon, and Rice:

That’s my quickie post for this morning – I’ve been working endlessly on my post on disordered eating, guilt, and health. Get excited lovlies 🙂

Have a good day everyone! See you after din din 🙂
