Beet and “Goat Cheese” Salad

Serves 2

  • 1 bunch of curly kale
  • 3-4 medium beets, any variety
  • 1 ½ cup raw cashews
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 medium-sized garlic clove
  • 1/4- ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1/4- ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried chives
  • 1 tsp dried or fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp crushed raw walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse beets and cut off greens. On a baking sheet place all beets and roast for 2-4 hours or until easily pierced by a fork. Once cooled, cut into cubes. Alternately for a quicker option, simply dice beets and steam. Next, wash kale and pull off of stem. Rip kale into bite-sized pieces and put into a large bowl. Lightly salt the kale and massage with your hands until it turns bright green and is wilted. Crush or dice rosemary with kale, then set aside.

Next, in a food processor or high-speed blender, add cashews, lemon juice, garlic, sea salt (adjust to taste) and about ¼- ½ cup of water and blend until smooth. Add more water if you want a thinner dressing. Hand mix chives into cheese. Divide kale into two bowls, top with beets and a dollop of cheese on the side to scoop with your fork with each bite. Add crushed walnuts to the top for extra flavor and texture.

  • sea salt
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 jar of favorite salsa
  • 3-4 large russet potatoes
  • 1 package guacamole or homemade guacamole

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse and scrub potatoes, then cut into roughly ¼ inch thick rounds. Place rounds flat on parchment lined baking sheets.

Easy Sweet Curry

  • 5-6 cups chopped sweet potato
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp red curry paste, such as Thai Kitchen
  • 2 broccoli crowns
  • 1 cup thinly sliced chopped cabbage
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • 4-6 tbsp coconut aminos
  • toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa or brown basmati rice

In a pot put diced sweet potatoes, two cloves of garlic, and half a tablespoon of ginger. Cover with water and let boil until sweet potato is soft. Strain out sweet potato, along with garlic and ginger and place into blender along with ½-1 cup of boiling water, depending on desired thickness. Add to blender red curry paste, sea salt to taste and blend until smooth. Next dice remaining two cloves of garlic and add the remaining ½ tablespoon of ginger, plus diced sweet onion to a pot with just enough water to cook. Cut up broccoli into bite-sized florets and cut up cabbage while garlic, ginger and onion cook.

Once onion is translucent, add in broccoli and cabbage and a little more water as needed just to keep things from sticking. Add in roughly four tablespoons of coconut aminos and mix well. Cover with lid and occasionally stir. Peel large carrot and julienne cut into small matchsticks while veggies cook. Once broccoli is about halfway cooked, add in carrots and another one to two tablespoons of coconut aminos and stir well, adding water as needed to prevent sticking. Once veggies are cooked, pour in sweet potato curry sauce and stir well. Serve over quinoa or brown basmati rice.

  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to directions on package. While pasta is cooking, trim bottom and quarter brussels sprouts. Dice garlic cloves and add to a skillet along with one tbsp of olive oil. Cook garlic until golden, adding water as needed to prevent sticking. Next, add in brussels sprouts and about ¼ tsp sea salt. Adding water as needed to prevent sticking, cook Brussel sprouts until fork tender. Once pasta is done cooking and drained, add to the pot brussels sprouts with garlic, the juice of two lemons and roughly three tablespoons of nutritional yeast and toss until well mixed. Serve each bowl with a sprinkle of sea salt, black pepper and additional nutritional yeast.
