Creative Yummy Dips that made me fall in LOVE with PLANTS

20170912_135716-1.jpg

The reason why so many of us do not think highly of vegetables is because no one really showed us what to do with them. Pardon my observations… but tired salad leaves sprinkled with a chemical waist for a dressing OR brutally chopped carrots OR, worse - severely overcooked greens are sad -sad -sad. No one will ever like plants that are served with no imagination…… Far more exciting is all those fancy-shmancy beautifully wrapped and well-presented dead substances sold to us as food. Right? Right… unless you want to get more out of your food then just looks and taste.

Imagination is everything.

Here are a few ideas for those of You who are no longer buying into the external programming and discovering their own ways to enjoy food - HEALING, NURTURING, EMPOWERING ways.

Plant Dip #1 - LIFE BEET

The Best Chocolate Bar. You can make it!

20170306_162507~2.jpg

Tools: blender, bowls, cutting board, spoon, chocolate bar mold

Ingredients to make the filling:

- 1 cup non roasted pistachio nuts ( it is fun to experiment with other nuts)

- 1/4 cup raw coconut oil, melted

- 2 T maple syrup (or raw honey)

- A pinch of Himalayan salt

Ingredients to make chocolate:

- 4 T raw cacao powder

- 2 T new Earth sweetener of your choice - raw coconut crystals, coconut sugar, agave or maple syrup, etc

- 4 T raw cacao butter, melted

- a touch of vanilla powder (optional)

Step 1. Blend all the ingredients to make a creamy nut filling and transfer it to a bowl. Let it rest.

Step 2. In another bowl mix all the ingredients for the chocolate. Make sure it is smooth and silky.  Keep mixing until the mixture is cooled down. 7-10 minutes at least.

Step 3. Pour the chocolate into a chocolate bar mold half way ONLY and transfer the mold into the refrigerator for 10-15 mins.

Step 4. Get the mold out, Fill the future chocolate bar with the nut cream, staying away from the edges of the mold.

Step 5. Pour the chocolate over the nut cream, filling the mold to the full. It takes a little skill to make the right proportion between the layers, but.... practice makes a master, right? Once you do it once, you will become a chocolate pro.

Leave your creation in the refrigerator for at least a few hours. Then call your friends and family for the chocolate medicine party.

Thank you for your healing ripples in the world. Together we can change the beat of the world.
