2 tablespoons EVOO or avocado oil
1.5 lbs yellow summer squash, chopped into small pieces
1 medium yellow onion chopped
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger root
3 medium cloves of garlic minced
2 teaspoons curry powder
6 cups veggie broth
1 medium russet potato (approx 8 oz), peeled and diced
Pink Salt to taste
1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
4 tablespoons EVOO or avocado oil
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in Dutch oven; make sure it is hot. Add the squash and onions and cook stirring occasionally until golden browned. You need high heat because of the watery squash. If it doesn't brown, the flavor is lost; about 10 minutes. Stir in ginger, curry and garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the broth and potato and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook uncovered on medium low simmer until the potato is very tender, about 25 minutes. Puree the soup with an infusion blender (or wait until it cools and puree in blender in batches) until very smooth. Adjust seasonings and salt to taste.
When ready to served (hot or cold), puree the cilantro, lime and 3 tablespoons oil until smooth. Salt mixture to taste. Ladle the soup, drizzle over cilantro puree and serve.
Check the flavoring when cold if serving this way as the heat/cold changes the flavors.
And the green swirl of cilantro puree- don't mix it in completely.
I increased the spices by 50% because I love curry and things with a kick.
I also substituted 12 oz of chopped cauliflower for the potato, to reduce the carbs.

1 cup blanched skinless almonds or raw cashews or raw macadamia nuts
1/2 teaspoon salt plus pinch for soaking
3 Tablespoons water
2 tablespoons EVOO
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1) Put nuts in a large bowl and fill with water and punch of salt. Cover and soak nuts for 24 hours for almonds (or 6 hours for macadamias or cashews)
2) Drain nuts and rinse thoroughly until water runs clear.
3) Place nuts in food processor with remaining ingredients. Process until smooth and looks like ricotta cheese. Can store in fridge up to 5 days.
1 cup fine cornmeal (organic)
1 cup water
2 cups almond milk
1 cup coconut milk
1/3-1/2 cup maple, agave or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 pink teaspoon salt
Mix cornmeal in a medium bowl with water until smooth.
Bring almond milk, coconut milk and salt to bowl in a pot on medium-high heat.
Add cornmeal mixture and stir continuously using a whisk. While the porridge thickens, it is important to continue mixing to prevent lumps from forming.
Reduce heat and cover pot and allow porridge to simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Add sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon and allow cornmeal porridge to cook for 5 more minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Divide cornmeal porridge into two bowls, top with fruits and toasted coconut flakes. Serve immediately
1 heaping Tbsp Chia seeds (whole or ground into a fine meal so they're undetectable)
1/2 Tbsp agave nectar, honey or maple syrup
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4-5 slices slightly dry Dave's bread or Ezekiel bread (it's important to use a sturdy, rustic bread or it can turn out soggy/soft)
Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large, shallow bowl. Place in the fridge to activate for 10-20 minutes.
Preheat griddle to medium heat (~350 degrees F / 176 C) and grease with 1 Tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil.
Dip each slice of bread in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side. If your bread is dry, leave it in a little longer. If you're using sandwich bread, it should only need 25-30 seconds total to soak.
Place on griddle and cook until golden brown on the underside. Carefully flip and cook until the other side is golden brown as well - 3-4 minutes.
Top with desired toppings: I went with coconut whipped cream, strawberries, and maple syrup.
Combine Ingredients in Wrap
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2) The onion, garlic, celery, and mushrooms should be chopped to be the same size as the cauliflower rice.
3) Cut onion, celery and garlic in food processor. Pulse until chopped to small pieces.
4) Cut mushrooms in food processor until chopped to match size of cauliflower rice.
5) Put onion, celery and garlic in large nonstick pan with oil. Cook until lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
6) Add the cauliflower and mushrooms, stirring often. The goal is to cook as much of the liquid out of veggies as possible so the meatballs won't be mushy, about 10 minutes.
7) Remove from heat and mix in oregano, basil, rosemary, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
8) Mix in the Vegan mozzarella and Vegan Parmesan until melted. Mix flax meal and Chia seeds and flax meal in a separate bowl and add to the veggie and cheese mix. Let the mixture cool and thicken until it can be handled.
9) Divide the mixture into 12 balls or more. If it is too sticky, add a tablespoon of flex meal.
10) Put on a on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper - not silicon - so they are spread at least 1 inch apart. They spread and melt a bit to be more of a thick cookie shape than an actual ball.
11) Bake 20 minutes or until well browned. If you make the balls smaller, adjust the cooking time and watch. Let sit for about 5 minutes.
12) Serve as snack or appetizer with marinara dip or over zoodles/noodles.
For 12 portions:
- Cut up 2 cups of watermelon into ice cube size pieces.
- Place on cookie sheet in the freezer until frozen.
- Put in blender with 1 cup of sparkling water or plain water.
- Add a tablespoon of honey if you wish (I don't).
- Add sprig of mint or basil.
- I have also added frozen strawberries.
- Blend and enjoy.
