Herbed Almond/Cauliflower Purée on Sliced Beetroot

This was incredibly simple, yet delicious, incredibly healthy, light & pretty.
  • Almonds - ½ cup (raw, unpasteurised, soaked & peeled)
  • Cauliflower - (amount depends upon size - I used ¼ of one which was quite large)
  • Garlic scapes - chopped, reserving ½ to fold in after processing (cloves may also be used in the absence of scapes)
  • Celtic sea salt - to taste
  • EVOO - 1½ Tbsp (organic, first cold pressed)
Blend above ingredients together in food processor, folding in garlic scapes at the very end of process (it should appear to be chopped, not blended).  

After processing, fold in remaining garlic scapes along with chopped scallion tops & fresh herbs of choice.

Place mixture atop beetroot slices
Garnish with sliced asparagus, chopped scallion, chopped beet green stems, drizzle of EVOO, kelp granules & cayenne.

Post script to Jain friends:
I intend to get back to my regular lifestyle after my knee is completely healed & rehabilitated. Until then, please feel free to substitute as necessary if you choose to prepare these recipes. Thank you all for understanding! 

Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup

This is a simple, warming, filling, and healing recipe. Sadly, this concoction is not even remotely Jain-friendly (for which I most sincerely apologise). However, if that's not a major concern and you're looking for some healing comfort food, this should satisfactorily fill that need.
  • Carrots - 5 (tops removed & reserved for another time) 
  • Almonds - ½ cup (raw, unpasteurised, soaked)
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece
  • Water - 3 cups
  • Celtic sea salt - 1½ tsp.
  • Coconut oil - 1 Tbsp.
  • Irish Moss - 1 Tbsp. (soaked)
  • Garam Masala - 1 Tbsp.
  1. Blend until smooth & slightly above body temperature
  2. Pour into bowls
  3. Garnish with: 
  •        Chopped scallion
  •        Cilantro (garnish)
  •        Dulse flakes
        4.   Serve & enjoy with gratitude.
