  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts

  • 1/2  teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1-2 tablespoons water (optional)

Preparation

  1. Carefully tear your cabbage leaves away from the head of cabbage, trying to keep them as whole as possible. Wash, set aside.

  2. Wash clean all your other produce well, slice/chop to desired size and shape. Set aside.

  3. Make your Mango Lime Sauce by blending all the sauce ingredients together in your food processor/blender until smooth. You can enjoy the creaminess and thickness of this sauce as is, or add 1-2 tbs water to achieve your desired consistency.

  4. Fill each cabbage leaf with your veggies, sprinkle with hemp hearts and serve with mango lime sauce.

Notes

For best flavour, choose small peas, which are younger, sweeter, and more tender than large ones, and make sure they’re as fresh as possible. If you can’t find good fresh peas or you crave peas when the season’s over, frozen peas are a terrific alternative.

Risotto 

Ingredients

  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed

  • 2-3 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup coconut milksalt and pepper to tastea handful of salted toasted cashew nuts

  • garlic chives for garnish (optional)

Preparation

To make the cauliflower rice, cut the cauliflower into equal size small pieces, and process for 4-5 seconds in a food processor. Do this in several batches to get an even consistency. Separate 4 cups of 'riced' cauliflower, and freeze the rest for later use. Melt 3 tbs of coconut oil, and add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute. Add the cauliflower and stir for a couple of minutes. Add the coconut milk, and stir until it gets absorbed - another 2-3 minutes. Adjust seasoning, and top with the toasted cashew nuts. Optionally sprinkle garlic chives on top.

Cold Brew Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 ⁄3 cup (60 g) medium-ground coffee beans

  • 2 1/2 cups (600 ml) all-natural canned coconut milk

  • 1/4 cup (50 g) organic unrefined cane sugar1/4 cup (60 ml) agave

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) pure vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, combine the coffee grounds and coconut milk. Cover this mixture and place it in the refrigerator to steep overnight, at least 12 hours or more.

  2. Once it’s steeped, use a fine-mesh strainer to remove the grounds from the coconut milk. If you find that your coconut milk has separated and there is a layer of cream on top, stir it and let the milk warm enough to homogenize before straining it. Discard the grounds.

  3. Use a high-speed or immersion blender to mix the coconut milk coffee, sugar, agave, vanilla, and salt. Add the mixture to your ice cream maker and churn it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Most machines take 10 to 15 minutes depending on the temperature of the mix, and when it’s finished it should look like soft serve.

  4. Once it’s churned, transfer the ice cream to a large freezer-safe container, smooth the top, and cover it tightly. Freeze the finished ice cream for at least 5 to 6 hours, or until it is firm. Store this ice cream in the freezer in a sealed container for up to 1 week.

Notes

Makes 1 quart. For a coffee-holic's dream, top your favorite iced or hot coffee or espresso with a scoop of Cold Brew ice cream. The sweetness and richness are perfect complements.
