Roasted Roots with Fennel

Roasted vegetables are a very satisfying and nutritious snack or side dish. I like to make a big batch and have some on hand to add to salads or just munch as a snack.

They are great at squashing sugar cravings.

  • 5 small beets
  • 3 big carrots
  • 2 parsnips
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon Real Salt
  • 1 – 3 t. dried thyme (depending on how much you like)
  • Optional: add some chopped garlic

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Scrub all your vegetables.

Chop vegetables, place into a large bowl and toss well with oil and sea salt. Transfer them to a baking dish.

Bake covered with foil for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 minutes.

Variations: try using other root vegetable combinations like daikon, sweet potato, carrot and beet; rutabaga, turnip, carrot and onion . . . the options are endless!

1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
1 – 2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/4-teaspoon nutmeg

Place all ingredients into blender and puree until smooth.

Lentil Curry Soup

8 large carrots, 5 stalks celery, 1 leek, 1 head broccoli, 1 zucchini, 1 cup mushrooms, 1 cup okra, 1/2 med. Onion (or any other combo of vegetables you like)
1 1/2 cups black, brown, red or green lentils (rinse and sort out any stones)
Equal parts water and Pacific vegetable broth to cover vegetables and lentils
3 teaspoons curry powder or to taste
1 bunch cilantro
Salt to taste

Chop vegetables and place in large soup pot with lentils, curry and liquid. Bring to a boil and simmer until lentils are tender (about 30-45 minutes).
Season to taste with salt and top with chopped cilantro to serve.

Creamy Berry Sorbet

1 cup frozen banana chunks
1/2 cup frozen berries (cherries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.)
small amount fresh apple juice or water (about 2-4 Tablespoons)
agave or raw honey to taste
optional: 1 teaspoon raw coconut oil

Place all ingredients into processor and process, stopping and scraping down work bowl every so often. It takes a few rounds of stopping, scraping and processing before mixture begins to homogenize and cream into an ice cream consistency. Once this happens do not over process. Eat right away, or it can be stored in the freezer for 1-2 weeks. Great for kids (young and old)!
