Serious. Comfort. Food. Without feeding the yeast!
Posted Jan 14 2010 4:48am
How's your week been? Hopefully fantastic so far!
Today I want to share with you an incredibly satisfying comfort meal I've enjoyed this week. After loading up on green juice, then a big raw salad, this has been the perfect end to a glorious meal that totally satisfied my tastebuds and my desire for something filling, sweet and warm.
I got the idea from Heather's Chocolate Soup and adapted it into a treat of a recipe that completely fits with my personal dietary choices. Not only is this is all of the above, but it also won't feed any yeast monsters living in your system. Great for anyone who is experiencing any symptoms or doesn't have the energy or health they desire as an excess of yeast typically goes hand in hand with these symptoms. It's also just super yummy and doesn't include grain, sugar, dairy, gluten, anything processed or refined, preservatives, additives or anything other than natural whole foods. Plus, it's perfectly combined for you food combiners out there.
Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato with Creamy Chocolate Dipping Sauce
For the Sweet Spiced Sweet Potato:
2 teaspoons of mixed spice 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (I recommend using this but it's not necessary. I went without) 1 orange sweet potato 1 purple sweet potato (you could use 2 of the same colour, or pumpkin also)
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Wash and cut the sweet potato into rounds about 1cm thick. Mix the rounds in a bowl with the coconut oil (warmed so it's liquid) and the mixed spice. Toss until evenly coated. Place the rounds onto a tray lined with parchment paper and bake until just golden brown and soft through.
For the Creamy Chocolate Dipping Sauce:
1/2 large avocado or 1 small 2/3 cup of water (you could sub this with fresh raw nut or seed milk for something extra creamy) 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder or raw cacao powder (you could sub with carob powder also. I used a mix of both) Stevia to taste
While the sweet potato is baking, put the chocolate sauce ingredients into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes until creamy. Serve with the sweet potato rounds and enjoy as a dipping sauce, or spoon onto the rounds like I did and enjoy like hors d'œuvre style:
I imagine this one will be particularly good for all my readers and clients over in the winter weather. Snuggle up and enjoy!
