Grapefruit & Thyme Glazed Root Vegetables with Coconut Oil

Sweet potato, golden beet and carrots glazed with a grapefruit and thyme glaze and cooked to perfection. If you are vegan than this recipe is for you.

I love anything that is healthy is easy to make and tastes good, not to mention looks good.

Adapted from: forageddish

Ingredients

1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 large carrots

1 golden beet

1 medium sweet potato

1 grapefruit

1 garlic clove

2 tablespoons fresh thyme, leaves only

Salt to taste

Method

1. Heat coconut oil over medium to low heat in a medium-sized skillet. Mince garlic, and once the oil is hot, add it to the pan.

2. Chop the vegetables (carrots, beets, and potatoes) into equally sized cubes, about 1/2 in by 1/2 inch. Toss them in the skillet.

3. Cook slowly, stirring on occasion, as to cook the vegetables evenly. Once potatoes are cooked through, squeeze juice from the grapefruit over the vegetables (picking out any grapefruit seeds as you do). Continue to cook, stirring every so often, until the liquid is mostly evaporated and all of the vegetables are well coated. Add in the thyme leaves, and season with salt to taste.

4. Serve warm, garnish with an extra spring of thyme.

In a large dutch oven or sauce pot, heat 2 T olive oil over medium heat. Add in butternut squash, onion, bell pepper, chili, and garlic and sauté for 10 minutes, stirring every now and then, until onions appear translucent.

Lower the heat to medium-low and add in the spices, uncooked quinoa, tomatoes, black beans, vegetable broth, and freshly ground sea salt and pepper. Cover chili and let bubble away on medium-low heat for about an hour, stirring occasionally.

When chili is done, serve in individual bowls and top with diced avocado and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro if desired. Feel free to drizzle with some hot sauce if you want a spicier chili. Enjoy!

Cream of Mushroom Soup With Chicken Broth In 15 Minutes

Cream of Mushroom SoupCream of Mushroom Soup

An easy Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe that will make mushroom-lovers happy, especially the ones doing the cooking since it only takes 15 minutes to make. To have this soup ready in under 15 minutes, first read through the recipe. As you read gather together all of the ingredients and all of the tools, pots, pans, etc. that you will need so that everything is at your fingertips. There is no need to prep any of the ingredients though. All prep is part of the instructions and is counted in the 15 minute time.

Serves: 4-6
Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3.5 oz. shiitake mushrooms
  • 16 oz. sliced cremini (baby bella) mushrooms (buy them already sliced)
  • 6 cups low or no-sodium vegetable or chicken broth, divided
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. coarse black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 5 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • ¼ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  1. Put a large skillet over medium heat and add the butter and olive oil. Chop the onion and add it to the pot. Stir. De-stem the shiitake mushrooms. Discard stems and slice the caps. Put slices and the cremini mushrooms into the skillet. Increase heat to high. Stir occasionally until wilted and browned in places.
  2. Meanwhile, pour 5 cups of the broth into a large pot or Dutch oven. Put it on high heat. Add the salt and pepper. Cover.
  3. Mince the garlic cloves. Measure the flour and remaining 1 cup of broth into a mason jar. Put on the lid tightly and shake it really really well. Add the minced garlic to the mushrooms and stir. Remove the skillet from the heat. Add the flour mixture and stir well.
  4. Once the broth has reached a simmer remove it from the heat. Stir in the evaporated milk and then the mushroom and flour mixture. Return to heat just until it reaches a simmer. Remove from heat. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce. Pulse with an immersion blender* until most of the mushrooms are in small pieces (I like to leave some big pieces though). Serve.

Cream of Mushroom Soup

Notes
*If you don’t have an immersion blender, transfer about ¾ of the mushrooms along with about half of the broth (or however much fits) into a blender or food processor. Blend until mushrooms are in small pieces. Return it to the soup pot and stir.
