Ingredient IQ

A member of the buckwheat family, rhubarb is actually a vegetable. It was used in China as early as 2700 BC to ease stomach pain and heartburn.

Instructions

1

Prep the nectarines

Cut the nectarines in half and remove the pits; coarsely chop the fruit.

2

Blend the smoothie ingredients

In a blender, combine the almond milk, nectarines, rhubarb, honey, flaxseeds, and 1 cup ice. Season lightly with salt and blend until smooth.

3

Serve

Pour into glasses and serve.

1

Prep the guacamole and tomatoes

  • Cut the avocado in half; remove the pit and scoop out the flesh.
  • Juice the lime.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.
In a medium bowl, using a fork, mash together the avocado, lime juice, and cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In another medium bowl, toss the tomatoes with 1 teaspoon oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

2

Prep and cook the eggs

  • Crack the eggs into a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended.
In a small frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons butter or oil until hot but not smoking. Add the eggs and cook, until the eggs are just set, gently pulling the cooked eggs toward the center once or twice to allow the uncooked eggs to spread to the edge of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, top the eggs with the guacamole, and crumble the queso fresco over the top. Gently fold to form an omelet, then cut the omelet in half.

3

Serve

Transfer the omelet halves to individual plates, garnish with the tomatoes, and serve.
