Cabbage Wraps

 

Welcome to the wonderful recipe of

"Add whatever the garden is growing!"

Here I have farm fresh beets, dill, tomatoes, chopped chard and some sea salt to top. I also like to add some sauerkraut for flavour. 

Get creative and add your own combination of veggies for a filling, hydrating and nutrient rich meal.

Green Smoothie

 

Add any variety of fresh green veggies. 

My favourite is parsley, cilantro, swiss chard, kale, mint, 1/2 inch piece of ginger. Fill your blender full vegg and 3/4 full with water. Blend completely and then strain out the pulp with a fine mesh strainer. 

Enjoy your chlorophyl rich green water with some ice. 

JAM!

5 cups of fresh farm raspberries (or any berry)

 

1/2 cup of unpasteurized honey

 

1/4 cup whole chia seeds

Mash the berries, mix in the honey, gently heat if it works better. Add to a mason jar and mix in the chia seeds. Cap and allow to sit and solidify in fridge overnight. Will last about 1 week in the fridge. I like to freeze and use in small amounts throughout the year.
