Sweet Potato Kale Soup

So, this came about when I saw something similar on Instagram and I had just purchased a sweet potato at the farmers market. Sweet potato soup is amazing because you don't need a ton of spices; the sweetness speaks for itself and doesn't require alot of dressing up. The longest part of this recipe is steaming the sweet potatoes so you can steam it ahead of time and store it in your fridge. This is so awesome for the whole family and a great soup to make for kids because it's sweet.

I didn't peel the sweet potato; I just wasn't going to waste the skin. It's nutritious and it's tedious to peel off and I just don't see the point. When you steam the potato, cut it up into small pieces so it doesn't take long to steam and then make sure you can get a fork through the biggest piece. Once that's taken care of it, you are ready to make the soup which is ready to eat right away.

1 big sweet potato, cut up and steamed
1 cup of steamed kale
1/4 cup of water
2 tbsp of nutritional yeast
2 tsp sea salt and pepper
Pumpkin or hemp seeds to garnish

Cut the potato into small pieces and steam. Once you can get a fork though it easily, you will know it's done. You can peel it or not, whatever you wish. Transfer to your food processor and process on high, adding the water to keep the soup going. Add more water if you want your soup more watery. Add the nooch and sea salt and pepper. While you process the soup, steam the kale. Once the kale is bright green, cut into small pieces and stir into the soup. Transfer the soup to a bowl, garnish with the seeds and serve.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
