Carrot Bread

On this rainy day, we wanted a little comfort food for breakfast. WARNING: This recipe contains sugar. (gasp!) Sweet is one of the 6 tastes according to Ayurveda, an ancient medicinal practice. In the right dose, sweetness promotes happiness, contentment, calmness, cheerfulness and love. Are we saying eat sugar every day? No, of course not. Let's not overthink this too much, OK. As always use the best ingredients you can afford and find. This recipe is delicious with a cup of tea and a good book. 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup organic brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (we used carrots from Farmhouse Delivery)
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 pasture raised eggs 
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine sugar, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk until well combined. 
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. 
  • Mix in carrots and nuts. 
  • Pour into bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 45-55 minutes. 

Ancho Chili with White Beans & Kale

This chili uses pureed dried chili peppers instead of chili powder. It makes a huge difference in flavor. 

INGREDIENTS

  • One pound ground grass-fed beef
  • 1 head kale, washed, stem trimmed, finely chopped 
  • 1 can cannelleni (white beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (fresh or from the box)
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2-3 large dried ancho chili peppers (stem and seeds removed)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked/sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt + more to taste
  • 2 cups broth (beef or chicken) + more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter or oil of choice

The Good Stuff: We like to top our chili with avocado. Other options include cilantro, a sprinkling of cheese, and some Beanitos chips. Add what you like! 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Soak the peppers in water while you prep/chop your veggies.
  • In a 3-4 quart pot over medium heat, add oil, onions and a pinch of salt. Cook for 5-10 minutes until soft.
  • Add garlic, beef and another pinch of salt. Cook for another 10 minutes, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat. 
  • Add kale, beans, tomatoes, cumin, paprika and 1 tsp salt and give it a stir. Turn the heat down to low.
  • Take your soaked peppers and blend them with 2 cups broth in your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. 
  • Add the liquid to the chili and give it a stir. Turn heat back up to medium and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes. If you think it needs a little more liquid, add more liquid. 
  • Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.

Makes 4-6 servings.
