Wild Rice Stuffing



Ingredients
1 cup uncooked wild rice (or equal amount of uncooked quinoa) 3 cups water
2 veggie bouillon cubes- my favorite is Rapunzel Vegan Bouillon
1 tablespoon oil
1 chopped onion cone #2 + leeks
1 cup sliced mushrooms cone#4
1 cup chopped apple cone #2
1/4 cup dried cranberries
2 cups diced celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1/4 cup salted cashew nuts cone #3
Sprinkle of Fresh parsley to serve

Add in’s: Sautéed Tempeh ( Alive& Healing)

Directions

Place wild rice and water in 3 quart sauce pan and bring to a boil. Then place lid on and reduce temperature- so the vacuum cooking can quicken the cooking time. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all water is absorbed. Cook wild rice for about 30 minutes. (If you're using quinoa, cook It for about 15 minutes.)
Heat EOS or 11” skillet over medium heat. Add oil, onion, mushrooms, apple, cranberries and celery. Stir and heat through until tender. Add the salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Continue to stir and cook slowly until fragrant, about 10 minutes total. Combine the rice, the fruit/vegetable mixture in a large bowl. Cover and keep warm in oven until serving.

Sweet Potato Pie



 Sweet Potato Pie

1 1/2 Cups pecans

8 Dates (4 soaked overnight or in hot water 1 hour)

2 tsp.s Vanilla

1 tsp. salt

3 Lg. Yams and/or sweet potatoes cone #3

4 Tb.s Coconut oil

1 1/2 Tbl.s Health Alliance Lecithin (optional, adds creaminess)

1 Tbl. Pumpkin pie spice

For crust

Process pecans, 4 (un-soaked) dates, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. vanilla in food processor until it can be pressed into a pie pan. It should be a little crumbly but able to stick together. If it’s too crumbly you can add a little water or process longer or both.

Press into pie pan and set aside, no baking needed.

Chop yams/sweet potatoes with skin if you have a strong blender.

Cook in 3qt Salad Master Pan with 2 T. water - Medium, click, Low- until just soft, slightly firm. If using a regular pan, use 1 cup water, cook until tender, then drain excess water. Blend in blender with the other 1/2 tsp. salt, other 1 tsp. vanilla, 4 soaked dates, coconut oil, lecithin and pumpkin pie spice until smooth (you may need to stop and stir a few times… you want it to be thick. Pour/scoop into crust and chill overnight or a few hours at least.







This pie is wonderful topped with coconut whipped “cream”!

ENJOY!
