Change it Up Chowder
1 cup coconut (young Thai fresh coconut meat, or dried shredded)
1 cup water
1 cup cashews
Blend for 3 minutes in the blender. Add:
½ cup extra virgin cold pressed olive oil
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 cup chopped celery
Blend thoroughly and pick the flavor of the night:
Corn Chowder by adding fresh or frozen corn
Pea Soup by adding fresh or frozen peas
Mushroom Chowder by adding dried or fresh mushrooms (try any variety!)
Broccoli Soup by adding broccoli, chopped fresh is best, frozen in a pinch
Carrot Soup with finely grated carrots
And best of all, add dulse flakes for a Clam Chowder
All of these can be made with hot peppers, cloves of garlic, herbs, and spices. Spices help warm the body and create a full-bodied feeling.
1 sweet potato
1 white potato
4 stalks celery with leaves
Optional: fresh chopped garlic, hot peppers, spices
Shred all your veggies in the food processor with an S blade, and set aside. Grind 1 pound of nuts, any variety of raw nuts will do, grind into a paste or try a chunkier consistency for a different taste. Mix the two together and press into a loaf pan. Refrigerate for an hour. Turn out on a plate first warmed in the oven. This Veggie Loaf can also be sliced thin and popped in your dehydrator, until it’s warm, for a yummy treat. Use as many spices, hot peppers and garlic as you desire.
