“Strawberry Recipes for Everyday” cookbook shows versatility of this amazing fruit

In 2011, the California Strawberry Commission published “Strawberry Recipes for Everyday” cookbook showcasing the versatility of this amazing fruit called the strawberry. One serving of eight strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange and is packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate, and fiber. Strawberries are not only for dessert. They can be used in salads, sauces, and more. There are 6 sections – Breakfast, Appetizers & Snacks, Sweets, Main Courses, Salads, and Beverages. 

In the Breakfast section, I tried the Soufflé Omelet with Balsamic Strawberries. This soufflé omelet tasted more like a dessert. The eggs formed a soufflé like texture (fluffy) and flavor. This recipe also uses a mix of strawberries and balsamic vinegar. Use a fine, aged balsamic like Taste It!’s ChocolateBalsamic Vinegar. It is thick, sweet, and wonderful with fruit or drizzled on ice cream. The mix of fine, aged balsamic vinegar and fresh quartered California strawberries is a phenomenal combination. The prep time is a little longer than making a simple omelet, but well worth the effort. Thumbs up, way up!
