Butternut squash has an advantage over potatoes when it comes to a puree. After roasting, butternut squash becomes extremely smooth and creamy. Instead of the added milk or cream, the squash gets blended with a little butter for a velvety smooth side dish. It’s one of our favourite ways to serve the vegetable and it takes very little effort!

Use this recipe as an accompaniment to any meal (chicken, fish, pork, tofu). A green vegetable like broccoli, green beans or spring cabbage goes really nicely with butternut squash. This recipe is suitable for vegetarians and can be used during our RejuvaDetox+ Programme.

Serves 2


Ingredients:
300g butternut squash, peeled and cubed (this will be about 600 to 650g unpeeled)
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and black pepper

Method:
1. Put the squash and garlic into a saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil.

2. Cook for 10 minutes and drain well.

3. Add the mayonnaise and olive oil.

4. Season well and mash until smooth.

 

A full-flavoured supper that will please anyone from vegetarians to hardened meat-eaters. Serve with a large mixed salad perhaps with a light dressing of walnut oil and balsamic vinegar. Delicious and quick!

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 6 Portobello mushrooms, wiped with damp kitchen towel
  • 4 round slices of goat’s cheese (each about 1/2 cm thick)
  • 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
  • 6 large basil leaves, torn
  • 1 tbsp walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 dessertspoon olive oil
  • Black pepper

Method:

  1. Spread the sun-dried tomato paste on the undersides of the mushrooms, then gently fry them in olive oil until the mushrooms start to go brown, taking care when you turn them over not to dislodge too much of the sun-dried tomato paste.
  2. Place mushrooms bottom side up on a grill pan and top each with a slice of goat’s cheese.

 

  1. Grill gently until the cheese starts to bubble and turn golden.

 

  1. Remove from the heat and place on a bed of mixed salad, then scatter the walnuts and basil on top and serve immediately.

Method

1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients. Process for 10-20 seconds to break up any lumps in the coconut flour. Let is sit for 10 minutes so the coconut flour hydrates.

2. Heat a ceramic pan over medium heat and oil the bottom lightly if the nonstick coating isn’t great. When hot, pick up the pan and pour 1/2 cup of the batter into the center of the pan, giving the pan a tilt-rotate-jiggle action to spread the batter into a thick pancake about 12 inches or so across.

3. Put the pan back on the burner and let it cook until the top of the pizza  doesn’t look shiny anymore, and is not sticky to the touch. If it feels solid enough to flip, its time to flip. If it needs another minute, give it another minute. Timing isn’t crucial.

4. Use a big, wide pancake turner to flip it onto the other side. Another minute of cooking, and your pizza base is done.

5. Add toppings and pop it bake into the oven and continue to bake until the cheese bubbles.

Ingredients:

  • 50g cacao butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons cacao powder or cacao paste
  • 4 tablespoons lucuma powder (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons carob powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut nectar blossom or raw honey

Method:

First melt the cacao butter and coconut butter. I grate the cacao butter first so it melts quicker. Place in a bowl and then put this bowl into a larger bowl of hot water which heats the butters gently and you won’t end up cooking them! You can also get double boilers (bain marie or porringers) which does the same job but on the stove.

dark in a boxWhen the butters have completely liquefied (you might need to add more hot water), add the cacao, lucuma and carob powders a tablespoon at a time, stirring it in until dissolved. I shake the powder through a sieve to stop lumps. Next add the agave syrup or honey; slowly pour it in while stirring. Now pour the liquid chocolate into the moulds and put in the fridge to set.

TIP: Our kids also love to add any type of nuts, dried fruits, seeds or even cereal (hazelnuts, walnuts, cranberries, sunflower seeds or any healthy wholegrain cereal are great) into to the bottom of the moulds and we pour chocolate on top of it. So it gives this extra taste, volume and element of surprise to your chocolate. And it is great way to interact with kids

I only use Organic Raw Cacao products from Ecuador as found they match more tastier and nutritional!! compare to just buying an organic cacao product!
