CASHEW, CARROT & SWEET POTATO SALAD WITH AVOCADO MAYO

This!…Delectable?…Nah…couldn’t even! There’s no way it could possibly stack up, after all….it’s just birdseed. Could this be muesli? It looks like the perfect salad and tastes like an awesome crunchy nutty sweet potato and avocado mix of epic kitchen accidents!

Drizzle this baby with some avocado oil and serve as a side at any BBQ.

 

Ingredients

260g activated goodMix Blend11 (soak your Blend11 overnight..1/2 cup water to every 1 cup mix)
130g or approx. ½ a sweet potato, cubed small and roasted
100g raw cashews, dry roasted
1 onion, diced
30g or approx. ¼ carrot, grated
40g (handful) baby spinach, roughly chopped
¼ tspn celtic salt
Ghee for sauteing

Options/substitutes
Sub pumpkin for sweet potato. Sub pine nuts for cashews. Add in fresh parsley!

Avocado Mayo
1 ½ avocados
3 Tblspns avocado oil
3 Tblspns coconut milk
2 Tblspns raw ACV (apple cider vinegar with the ‘mother’)
¼ tspn organic mustard powder
Herbamare to taste

Method

**Activate your Blend11 overnight, as per instructions!

Cube sweet potato and spread on a baking tray rubbing them with a lightly greased hand of coconut oil. Roast until nicely done, say 30-40 mins, oven depending.

Dry roast cashews in a clean dry pan over low heat, tossing until golden. Remove cashews from the pan to cool and saute onion in a small amount of ghee.

Meanwhile, grate carrot and chop baby spinach.

Remove onion from the heat or turn heat off and toss in your Blend11 with the onion to bring a little warmth to the blend and so the blend soaks up the flavours in the pan.

Bring all components together and sprinkle in your celtic salt.

To make the mayo… throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and fluffy. Adjust to taste. Serve salad with a blob of avo mayo, and maybe a drizzle of avocado oil. This salad would be yum in egg wraps. Great as a side salad..take to a BBQ. Enjoy.

Serves approx


6-8

GOLDEN APPLEBERRY PIE

Tell me you can resist a combo of orange, ginger, cinnamon and honey? Tell me this Golden Appleberry Pie isn’t good enough to eat for breakfast? And tell me it tastes like birdseed? Let’s retract a little. Let’s see how a boring muesli can be made into one epic crumble. And wait for it… that crunch, that zest, that sweet….yet nutritious and damn filling. You too love a good crumble with healthy custard or homemade ice cream right? So, I say…go for it. Make this your in between snack or woo friends over dinner. This is a dish made with love. That’s why you’ll love it too.

 

Ingredients

Crumble
260g activated goodMix Blend11 (soak your Blend 11 overnight in fresh orange juice, or water…1/2 cup liquid to every 1 cup mix)
150g/ 1 ¼ cups almond meal, raw almonds ground
15g ghee
1 tspn vanilla
1 tspn cinnamon
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1 Tblspn orange rind, zested

Filling
6 – 8 apples of choice, peeled, halved and cored, sliced thickly
2 cups frozen organic berries, defrosted if time permits
Ghee for sauteing apples

Warmed syrup
1 – 2 Tblspn orange juice
2 – 3 tspns fresh ginger, zested
2 Tblspns raw honey

 

Method


**Activate your Blend11 overnight, as per instructions! An option is fresh orange juice.

Warm a pan, med to high, and saute apples in ghee until browning or golden. Spread apple in a dish. If berries are still cold or frozen, you can toss them into the warm pan briefly, then spread berries over the apples.

Warm in a saucepan…orange juice, ginger and honey over low heat.
Meanwhile prepare crumble by combining all ingredients and mixing until combined.

Pour the syrup evenly over the apples and berries in the dish. Then top the fruit mix with the crumble, spreading evenly.

In a low heated oven, say 150 deg, cook your pie until golden and crunchy, 30- 50 mins depending. Your dish may seem a tad juicy initially, however this syrup makes the dessert extra good and such syrup is absorbed during the cooling process. Warmed leftovers hold well and are not juicy.

Leave rest for a while before serving. Serve with your choice of custard or ice cream. Enjoy.

 

Serves approx

8-10

PORRIDGE BLEND

 

Mix and blend your Blend 11 for a warming nutritious creamy cinnamon porridge
 

Ingredients

70g (3 heaped Tbl activated) Blend 11, activated overnight
30g (2 heaped Tbl) rolled brown rice
150g coconut milk (or preferred milk or portion of milk and water)
1/2 – 1 tspn cinnamon
1/2 tspn mesquite powder
1 tspn coconut oil
2 tspns rice syrup (optional/preferred sweetener)
Vanilla extract, dash
 

Method

Blend your activated goodMix Blend 11 in the thermomix/blender spd 7 few seconds, scrape down and blend again. You just want to pulverise to refine the texture for a more smooth porridge.

Add rolled brown rice, milk, cinnamon, mesquite, oil, syrup, vanilla. Cook on a gentle heat – Thermomix 70 deg/reverse/soft stir/10 mins.
Adjust cooking time to quantities, and if you are in a super hurry or want a hotter porridge you can increase the temp to 80 deg and the rolled rice will cook in around 8 mins.

Options & substitutes…
Warmed activated Blend 11 without the rolled rice is delicious too. Adjust the quantities by increasing Blend 11, and reducing the milk, say 1:1. Choose to blend or leave in its original texture.

Sub rolled Quinoa or rolled oats if you can tolerate oats, for the rolled rice.

Serving suggestions…extra cinnamon, toasted coconut flakes, hemp seeds, sliced banana, extra coconut milk.

 

Alternate (simplified) method for the morning rush…

Take 1/2 cup Blend 11, dry… and using Bamix blender, grind til fine. Throw in bowl with couple tablespoons flakes or oats, add liquids and remaining ingredients except coconut oil maybe. Cover. Refrigerate. Warm gently your bowl of activated porridge blend in a saucepan in the morning.

 

 

Serves approx

1 (approx one serve)
