lace black-eyed peas in a blender with the onion, carrots, and egg. Blend to a smooth paste and add salt and pepper.

Submitted by Fr. William Kneemiller

Ingredients

In a Vita-Mix or good blender, add:
1 c. water
1-2 c kale or spinach or a green
1-2 bananas
1-tablepoon whole flax seed, I like golden flax
seeds

1 orange or lemon, peeled
1/5 c blueberries or any fresh or frozen fruit
1 cup ice

Instructions

Blend; add walnuts or any kind of nuts if you want some more protein
I end with 1/2 dozen walnuts on low blend for a few seconds to make
it into a ‘Crunchy’, if you want a variation of a ‘Smoothie”.

Notes

The recipe is simple with many variations, the key is 1-2 cups of fresh
greens.
