Vegan Borscht!

April 4, 2014

My father is Ukranian and one of my FAVORITE dishes my Babushka used to make was Borscht! 

There are MANY ways to prepare it.

It can be eaten hot or cold. I prefer HOT!

I have adapted my family recipe 
a bit and it is SO delicious!!


In a big pot add:

3 quarts of filtered pure water
1 Organic Onion, chopped 
3-4 cloves of Organic Garlic
2 Organic Celery, diced
5 Organic Carrots, diced
4 small Organic Potatoes, quartered then diced
1 small Organic Cabbage, chopped
1 Organic Green Pepper, diced
1 large Organic Beet, julienned
4 T. Gayelord Hauser's Vegetable Broth
1 T. Sea salt
2 Bay Leaves

Boil for 15 minutes or until veggies are tender. Tastes BEST the next day or prepare in the morning to eat for dinner. 

Then add:
1 small bottle Organic Ketchup (or a small can of organic tomato paste or sauce & an added sweetener like raw honey.)
1 can low sodium Kidney Beans, drained & rinsed
2 T. Dill

Enjoy with a BIG Salad & some traditional Rye Bread! 

When I eat this I am transported to my Babushka's house...

Enjoy an authentic taste of the Ukraine! 

These are my grandparents with my father.

Mango Pudding!

April 2, 2014

Got Mangos?? Make some Pudding!!

I LOVE this recipe! I had it when I went to hear Tanya Zavasta (Google her) speak. 
She served it to us and I FELL. IN. LOVE. with it! 

You MUST use RIPE mangos. But of course, that is ALWAYS the rule when it comes to Fruit!

All you need is:

Mangos + SpinachPUDDING!!!

You may want to add water to acquire desired consistency. :)

Cut cheeks:

Scoop out with spoon then chomp up the rest on peel and pit! Get messy! :)

Add to blender

Add as much spinach (whole box) as your little heart desires!

Spoon up and enter the world of pudding pleasure! SO. GOOD! Ok it's ugly...but
My kiddos LOVE It!!
