Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

Watch this recipe demo I attended at a Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Ingredients:

• 1 medium onion, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, chopped
• 1 and ¾ cup roasted and mashed pumpkin* or 1 can (15 oz.) pure, unsweetened pumpkin
or 1 and ¾ cup roasted and mashed butternut squash
• 4 cups (1 quart) unsalted vegetable broth or water
• 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (or 2 if you want to break a sweat; for timid palates omit the chipotle pepper and add 2 tsp mild chili powder)
• 1 tsp ground cumin
• ½ tsp ground coriander
• ¼ cup raw, unsalted pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
• cilantro for garnish (optional)

*For fresh roasted pumpkin, cut a sugar pumpkin in half. Scoop out the seeds and strings and place the halves face down on a silpat baking sheet or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F until soft, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool and then scoop out the flesh. Freeze any remainder for other recipes. Butternut squash can also be used in this recipe as an alternate to pumpkin. Simply follow the same roasting technique.

Technique:
In a dry skillet, toast the pepitas over medium heat. Stir the seeds frequently to evenly toast and prevent scorching. Set aside.

Water sauté the onions and sauté until lightly golden. Add the garlic and sauté an additional minute. Transfer the mixture to a high speed blender.

Add the pumpkin, 2 cups of  broth, the chipotle pepper and the cumin and coriander; process until completely smooth. Transfer to a large cooking pot and add the remaining stock/broth. Bring to simmer, partially cover and cook for 30 minutes. Ladle into individual bowls and garnish with the toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and optional cilantro.

Garnish with chopped kale, microgreens, sesame seeds, etc. Add your favorite bean(s).

casserole, comfort food, potato

Scalloped Potato Duo

Scalloped Potato Duo

Familiar, comfort foods can taste sooo good and be prepared without sugar, oil or salt.

Thanks to our Green Star member JoAnn who shared this recipe and delicious dish at one of our pot luck dinners.

Ingredients

Potato Base:

    • 1 14.5 oz cannellini beans or other white beans , drained (save aquafaba) and rinsed
    • 3/4 cup sliced white portion of green onions, chopped shallots or onion
    • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (without Folic Acid)
    • 1 tbsp unsalted dijon mustard or mustard of choice (not yellow)
    • 1 tsp generous Salt Substitute
    • 1 tbsp dried rosemary or 2 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
    • 1/3 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    • 2 clove garlic
    • 1/2 cup cashews (soaked if not using high powered blender)
    • 3 cups plain low-fat non-dairy milk (more if needed)
    • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 2 tbsp tahini
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste optional
    • 2- 2 1/2 lbs yukon or red potatoes thinly sliced, peeling optional (see note)
    • 2- 2 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes peeled (see note)
    • 1 large sweet onion, quartered and sliced thin
    • 1 sweet pepper chopped

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup good quality almond meal
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast for topping
  • 1 tbsp Mixed Italian herbs
  • few pinches salt substitute for almond meal topping

Steps

  1. To make the potato base: In a blender, first combine the beans, onions, nutritional yeast, mustard, table tasty, rosemary, nutmeg, garlic, cashews, milk, lemon juice, tahini, and pepper, if using. Puree until very smooth and silky, add more milk if needed. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place a tray lined with parchment paper on a lower rack to catch any possible drippings. Line with parchment paper or silicone baking mat a 9″ x 13″ (or comparable size) casserole dish. Add a thin layer of the bean mixture to the dish and tilt back and forth so it covers the base. Then, place a layer of white potatoes (about 1/2 the total amount), 1/2 of onions and 1/2 of sweet peppers followed by a layer of about 1/3 of the sauce mixture. The layers do not need to be completely even or measured out; it just helps to layer the potatoes with the sauce a few times to get the sauce between some of the potatoes. Repeat process, next with a layer of all the sweet potatoes, the rest of the onions and sweet peppers then finishing with the remaining white potatoes covered with the remaining sauce.
  1. To make the topping: Combine the almond meal, nutritional yeast, and salt in a small bowl (see note for other ideas). Sprinkle over top of the potato and sauce mixture, and cover the dish with aluminum foil. Bake for 50–60 minutes (or longer, if potato slices are thicker), until potatoes are so throughout when pierced with a knife. Remove foil and let bake another for 5–6 minutes or until lightly browned (you can also set the oven to broil for just a minute just to get that golden color on top). Remove from heat and let sit for 5–10 minutes before serving.

Notes

  • Potatoes Note: 
  • I use about half-and-half white and sweet potatoes, but you can vary up the proportions to your own tastes. 
  • For a ‘saucier’ casserole, use the lesser amount of potatoes (3 1/2lbs). 
  • To make au gratin: layer with vegan shredded cheese 
  • Toppings Note: Almond meal is a very tasty, and gluten-free substitution. 
  • Feel free to add a tbsp of nutritional yeast to topping

Make Kefir – Non Dairy, No Sugar, Oil or Salt

amy-and-joanne-kefir.jpgHow to Make Homemade Nondairy Milk Kefir as seen on BeGreenWithAmyYouTube

Time: 60 minutes or more
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Fermenting time: 1 day or less do to temperature of room
Total Time: approx. 24 hrs
Servings: 4 cups
Author: JoAnn 
Ingredients
1-2 Tbsp kefir grains
4 cups Silk Protein Nut milk or nondairy milk of choice (won’t be thick as with protein nut milk)
***If using homemade nut milk or nondairy milk other than Silk Protein Nut milk
1 tsp date paste 
Supplies
½ gallon mason jar  with plastic cover 
Non-metal slotted spoon
Funnel
Fine mesh non-metal colander
Jar for storing finished kefir
Instructions:
1. Clean: Clean everything well with regular soap (avoid antimicrobial
soaps). I’m talking the hands, glass jugs, spoons, everything!
2. Assemble: Add 1 Tbsp (ish) of the kefir grains and 4 cups of nondairy
milk to a large glass jug. Cover the jar with either a cover fitted loosely or a paper coffee filter. Secure with a rubber band/ or mason jar band to prevent any bugs or dust from getting in.
3. Ferment: Set in a warm, out of sunlight spot (65 to 85 degrees F) for about 24 hours or less if it is ready. You’ll know your kefir is done when it has slightly thickened and smells fermented. If your kefir has separated into yellowish watery-looking whey and curds, that’s fine! It’s just a sign that you can either reduce the length of fermentation next time or use more nondairy milk next time.
4. Strain: Place a fine-mesh non-metal strainer into the funnel and place in the clean jar
Pour your finished kefir into the strainer, stirring with a plastic or wooden spoon to gently force kefir liquid through. The grains will be left.
5. Start new batch: add the grains back into the large jar that you fermented the grains it. Add 4 cups of fresh nondairy milk (plus date paste) to start the process again for a new
batch.
6. Store fresh kefir: Tighten the cover on your kefir and store in the fridge. It will keep    4-6 weeks but the flavor will continue to ripen and the kefir may get slightly fizzy.
