Coach Debbie Tuttle

This soup recipe, plus the chocolate frosting, is from Debbie, our resident chocoholic, so we couldn’t include her without telling us how to get our chocolate in, without resorting to anything low-brow with a Nestle or Hersheys label!

Beans and Greens Soup

(adapted from David Gabbe’s recipe, see One of my favorite cold-weather soups–hearty and deep-down nourishing.

4 cups water

4+ cups kale, chopped (or collard greens, bok choy, other dark leafy greens)

3 cups cooked navy beans or other beans

1 medium onion, chopped

1-2 carrots, chopped

1-2 potatoes, washed well and diced

beans and green soup1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon sea salt

3-4 tablespoons red miso dissolved in 3-4 tablespoons water

(fork or wire whisk makes it easier)

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

In large pot, combine all ingredients, except miso, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast.  Bring to boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

Just before serving, stir in miso, lemon juice, and yeast. Refrigerate leftovers and use within 5-7 days, or freeze for longer period.

Yield:  4-6 servings


raw frostingFudge Frosting (adapted from Robyn Openshaw’s “12 Steps to Whole Foods”)

Perfect on GSG Beet Cake, both that recipe and this frosting recipe in Chapter 11!

1 cup unsweetened non-alkalized cocoa or raw powdered chocolate
2 cups coconut sugar, blended in dry blender container until “powdered”

¼ cup coconut oil

2+ Tbsp coconut cream, to consistency desired.

Cream together by hand until smooth.  I’d double it for a 9×13 pan, but then, I like a little cake with my frosting.  Leftover frosting will last in airtight container for a couple of weeks or more in the fridge.
