CHOCOLATE "RISOTTO" (grain-free)

CHOCOLATE "RISOTTO" (grain-free)

If you’re a chocoholic like me — and especially if you love chocolate for brekkie — this is one you really gotta try.

My “risotto” is made with cauliflower.  Don’t let this scare you off — it has an amazing texture and flavour and a couple of my taste-testers actually thought it was rice!  It also happens to be dairy-free, grain-free, and packed with antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, protein, adaptogens, and even pre and probiotics!

ANTS-ON-A-LOG SMOOTHIE

This amazing green smoothie was inspired by that quintessential snack many of us grew-up eating.  "Ants-on-a-log" featured celery sticks that were filled with peanut butter and then topped with raisins.  Here I have combined celery and leafy greens with nut-free sunflower seed butter and grapes instead of raisins!

My husband's family is East Indian, so I have been eating flavourful lentil-based stew or dhal for well over 2 decades.  Throw-in some sweet potato, and you have my kinda winter comfort food.  It may not look fancy, but it is super tasty and satisfying.

This dhal is made with red lentils, carrots, sweet potatoes, onion, ginger, turmeric, and other wonderful spices traditionally used in Indian cooking.
