Baked Veggie Soup

IMG_0348.JPG

Our bodies need fast and easy nourishment and this recipe provides just that - check it out below!

Ingredients
1 Kobacha squash
1 Sweet potato or yam
1 onion (sweet yellow are best)
4 gloves of garlic
1-2 tbsp olive oil
16 oz broth: veggie, chicken, or beef (you could use water as well)

Seasoning
Depending on the flavor of the squash and potato you may not need any seasoning at all. But, in case you do want to bump up the flavors, try some of these:

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Cumin

  • Cayenne

Maybe a splash of curry and/or cinnamon. Sometimes, just one teaspoon of tamari can turn up the notch of the flavor without it tasting like tamari. Balsamic vinegar will do the same – just ½ tsp, and possibly 1 tsp if a large amount.  


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop veggies and arrange them on a baking sheet. Leave the garlic cloves in their skin. Sprinkle a little olive oil on the chopped onion and the garlic.

Bake until all the ingredients until they are tender.

*Note: The garlic usually cooks much faster than the rest of the vegetables. So check it after about 20 minutes. When it is tender remove it from the oven and cook the remainder of the veggies.

When the veggies are tender blend them with the broth.

Black Sesame Seeds on Veggies

Black Sesame Seeds

This dish may not look very appetizing, but let me assure you that it is not only delicious but extremely nourishing. Black sesame seeds are high in minerals as are most foods that are dark, black specifically. They are high in B-vitamins and iron and considered a popular anti-aging food in many parts of the world. Minerals are so important and most of us do not get enough. This is a very good way because you not only get the nourishment from the seeds but you have a whole new way to make your veggies rich and delicious!

Shown here is yellow squash, steamed for about 4 minutes. I blended the sesame seeds in my Vita Mix and stored them in a jar in the fridge.  Then they are ready for me to sprinkle on my veggies. So simple, satisfying and nourishing.

Cauliflower Almond Meal

Cauliflower Almond Meal

 

yum yum yum yum. This recipe is so easy and can actually be made with any vegetable (broccoli, squash, yams, green beans, chard). The sauce can be made on its own, then top on your veggie of choice.

Here is how I do it with cauliflower.

Almond Meal Sauce (this is a very basic recipe that could be more diverse with spices)

1/2 cup Barlean's Coconut Oil or butter or ghee

4-5 cloves of garlic (chopped)

1/2 cup Almond meal

water to blend

salt & pepper (a little cayenne if you like)

Warm a sauce pan, and put in the coconut oil/butter until it is warm wan bubbly. Saute the garlic gloves until almost golden. Add in the almond meal. This will make the mixture get very dry. At this time, add in the water to make a paste. Turn down the heat and cook the mixture for a few minutes. You may need to add more water until you get the consistency you want. A thick sauce is what I like.

 

Prepare the Cauliflower by washing it, and it breaking apart. The smaller the pieces the faster it will cook. Place the cauliflower pieces in a baking dish. Top the almond meal sauce around the top, and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft.  Don't over cook it and let it get mushy. I like to broil it for a couple seconds just before serving so that the top gets nice and tan and crispy. It also tastes better when it is crispy!

Serving suggestions: On a bed of salad greens, rice noodles, or other steamed veggies.

Enjoy. Remember to use Barlean's Organic Coconut oil. It is the best!  Ghee is quite scrumptious too.
