  • Artichokes -A simple winter snack to cleanse the liver
    One of my (Erin) favorite foods is a whole artichoke (Cynarus scolymnus). It’s a rather uncommon but
    largely overlooked treat in my opinion and one that should be eaten more often since it is so easy to
    prepare! It is also fabulous for liver function. In fact, several of our herbal formulas include artichoke
    specifically because of this vegetable’s detoxifying and rejuvenative powers for the liver. It is in the herbal
    formula Livton Complex, the gemmo and mother tincture combination Depuragem that we use in our
    cleansing and detox protocols, the spagyrically-prepared detoxifier Apo-Hepat and Unda #74, which
    we use for hemorrhoids and circulatory congestion at the level of the liver and below (portal congestion).
    As a food, organic artichokes are a simple and quick snack to prepare if you have a pressure cooker. Most
    chefs suggest squeezing the juice of a whole lemon in the cooking water, but my undiscerning palate
    enjoys them even when I don’t have time for the lemon! I simply wash the artichoke, cut the partial stem
    off and cook it in a pressure cooker for 15 minutes at full steam with about a 1/2 inch of water in the
    bottom. Fifteen minutes later, I let out the steam, open the cooker and have a delicious treat. The leaves
    are delectable dipped in either flax seed oil, olive oil or garlic oil. I also like the “Follow your Heart” eggfree
    brand of “Vegenaise”, made with grapseed oil. I dip my leaves in this alternative to conventional
    “mayo” and then, when the leaves are gone, I gently cut into the heart, removing the spindly, spiky hairs
    that are no fun to eat, and then devour the best part: the heart!
    If you have a pressure cooker, don’t be shy! You might just find that you love this newfound vegetable
    which I find people have largely forgetten, other than our fancier restaurant chefs!

  • Dairy-free, Wheat-free, Sugar free Recipes
    1. Pickled Ginger

      • Cup fresh ginger root, thinly sliced
      • Cup fresh turmeric root, thinly sliced (if available, otherwise double the ginger)
      • Lemon juice to cover
      • Tsp sea salt
      • Glass jar with non-metal lid, 4 oz or 8 oz is a good size to start with

      Directions: Scrub the ginger and/ or turmeric to remove and dirt and dry it with a clean towel. Slice the roots into thin rounds (about 1/8th inch thick) Combine the ginger and turmeric in the jar Add salt and lemon juice to cover the roots Shake well and refridgerate.

      Note: Choose young ginger and turmeric roots if available. Young roots are tender. Mature, large roots will make a more fibrous pickle. These tender roots will be about the width of your thumb. Tender ginger and turmeric can be found at Asian markets if not available in your grocery store. Use only clean utensil to serve the pickled ginger to prevent it from spoiling. With proper handling pickled ginger can be stored in the fridge up to several months without spoiling. Ginger pickled in lemon juice is a variation of traditional south Indian digestive.

    2. Veggie Loaf

      • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
      • 5 portabella mushrooms
      • 5 large leaves Swiss chard, spinach or other greens
      • 1 roasted red pepper, drained
      • 1 carrot, cut up
      • 1 cup cooked cauliflower rice, packed
      • 1/2 cup almonds
      • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts
      • 2 tsp Italian Herbs or dried basil/thyme/sage
      • 1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
      • 1-2 Tbs GF vegan Worcestershire sauce or molasses
      • 1/2 tsp cumin
      • 1/2 tsp curry powder
      • 1 large organic free-range egg, lightly beaten (or vegan egg substitute)

      “Maple” Sauce

      • 1/3 cup Lakanto syrup
      • 1/2 cup gluten-free/sugar-free ketchup
      • 2 tsp gluten-free honey mustard
      • 1/2 tsp McCormick or other GF mild curry powder
      • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

      Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet and cook the portobellos, and chard till soft. Remove from heat; cool a bit; and process, along with the roasted pepper, by pulsing the food processor on and off until the vegetables are an even dice. Scrape into a large mixing bowl.

      Process the cooked cauliflower rice, almonds, and pecans until the mixture forms a coarse meal; toss into the mixing bowl. Add the herbs, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire and spices. Add the beaten egg and stir the mixture until well blended.

      Press the mixture evenly into an oiled loaf pan.

      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

      Make the sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients with a whisk. Optional: add a spoonful of granulated Lakanto to the sauce.

      Pour the “maple” sauce over the top and bake for about 45 minutes, until the loaf is firm and done. Remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to rest. This eases cutting and serving; though the slices are a bit fragile while it is warm. I use a thin vinyl spatula to remove the slices from the pan.

      Serve with garlic mashed cauliflower and some lovely roasted green beans.

    3. Pumpkin Pie

      Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Poke the frozen almond flour pie shell’s bottom with a fork several times and bake it, empty, for 20 minutes, or until very slightly browned.

      • 1 container of EXTRA firm silken tofu (or any firm, regular tofu)
      • 1/2 c. Lakanto syrup
      • 1 can of organic pumpkin (or half of one small pumpkin)
      • 1 tsp. ground ginger
      • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
      • 1 tsp. cardamom

      Put the smooth, pudding-like mix in the pre-baked pie shell and bake for 45-min-1 hour, at 375-400 degrees until the pie is browned on the top. Voila! Enjoy!
