Roasted Roots with Goat Cheese

I recently read from my new cookbook My New Roots, that you should always try to create the holy trinity in cooking: Salt, sugar, and acid. I am going to be using this from this recipe forward. Root Vegetables and goat cheese are my favorite things, mix in some sweetness, saltiness, and an acid and we’ve got ourselves a delicious dinner! For the salt, I used Himalayan salt, for the sugar I used pure maple syrup, for the acid I used a little lemon juice and the goat cheese is also considered as an acid.

1 small butternut squash (nutrition value of butternut squash)

3 beets (benefits of beets)

1 large sweet potato (why eat sweet potatoes?)

1 onion

4 cloves garlic

4 tbsp unrefined coconut oil, I use unrefined because the polyphenols (antioxidant) become damaged during the process of refining the coconut oil. Divide evenly between the two pans or one pan if everything fits.

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2-3 tbsp pure maple syrup drizzled over the top

Himalayan salt

pepper

A little squeeze of lemon

 

Bake in glass pans at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes.

Garnish with garlic and herb goat cheese and 1/3 c of pistachios if you choose.

Spicy breakfast burrito

Paleo Tortilla Recipe 

This recipe makes 3-4 burritos

1 C *mushrooms

1 small *onion

3 cloves *garlic

1 *red bell pepper

1 tbsp *curry powder

*Organic

Top burrito off with some hot sauce of your choice and a total of 1 C organic broccoli sprouts  I recommend eating broccoli sprouts daily!

Vegetable Pasta with Avacado

The hardest dish for our family to part with has been pasta, we LOVE pasta! I have tried several gluten free and paleo noodles and so far I haven’t enjoyed any. For this recipe, I used spaghetti squash as our noodles and loved it! It’s a very simple recipe that has a lot of flavors. We use the same vegetables because that is what we grow in our garden and we want to design our food around what we grow to limit our spending on groceries.

1 small spaghetti squash (cut in half and baked in oven) mixed with 2 tbsp organic butter after its baked

1 green zucchini

1 yellow squash

1 carrot

1 onion

3 cloves garlic

1 c broccoli

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

1 tsp turmeric

black pepper and Himalayan salt

Sautee vegetables with 2 tbsp coconut oil

 

Add 1 -2 sliced avocado

Paleo tortilla

I currently don’t have any pictures for these but I will be adding some soon

 

2 eggs

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 tbsp water

1/4 c arrowroot powder

1 tbsp coconut flour

pinch of Himalayan salt

 

Whisk eggs, water, and melted coconut oil in medium bowl. Add dry ingredients and beat until combined into the batter. In a medium skillet over medium heat pour 1/3 of the batter and immediately thin it out as if you are making crepes and coat the bottom of the pan. Cook for about 30 -50 seconds each side.

Coconut Rice with Veggies and Ginger Dressing

This so far is one of my top 5 favorite dishes!

1 1/2 C Brown rice

1 Can Unsweetened coconut milk

1 Tsp Himalayan salt

2 C Reverse Osmosis water

3 Cloves cut garlic (cut and let sit for 10 minutes prior to cooking)

Add all the ingredients to a pot and set over medium heat until boil, then turn to low and stir occasionally until rice is done.

DSCF0993

1 Onion

1 Small cabbage

2 Large purple carrots (higher amount of antioxidants)

2-3 Tbsp Coconut oil

1 Tbsp Pure maple syrup (I choose to use maple syrup over honey when cooking with higher temperatures, in Ayurvedic you shouldn’t cook with honey only eat raw. Recent research studies show heating honey raises a chemical called hydroxymethyl furfuraldehyde; a carcinogenic.) 

1 C Sliced brazil nuts and almonds

2 C Ginger Dressing (I did not make my dressing today but when I have I follow this recipe)

DSCF0999

Saute the coconut oil, onion, cabbage, and carrots on medium for 10-15 minutes then add the maple syrup nuts and a ginger dressing simmer on low for another 5 minutes or so. Mix together and enjoy!DSCF1002
