So it's "raw or cooked mushroom- coconut soup", if you're confused :)
Last night, before my staff holiday meeting, I was in the mood for some kind of coconut stew or soup. I wanted something I haven't done yet before, such as winter squash, chickpea or cashew coconut soup. I made a Costco run recently and picked up a big carton of local grown Watsonville shrooms-- so that's just what I based my soup off of. Weirdly, I've been in the mood for soup quite a bit recently-- it must be the changing weather. Regardless, I enjoyed one yummy bowl of goodness last night :)
Raw (or cooked) Mushroom Coconut soup--
Coconut oil (or other oil of choice)
1 garlic clove minced
1- 1 1/2 cup mushrooms (I used crimini)
1/2 Cup kale (optional)
1/2 Cup chickpeas (I added for protein)
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
A few shakes of tamari
1 Cup coconut milk
-- Sautee all ingrediants on medium heat OR if making a raw version, blend on a high- speed blender till creamy. I cooked my mixture prior to blending, as I don't like raw mushrooms (!), but you can certainly blend without cooking.
Enjoy, accompanied by some bread or crackers!
It may look like poo, but I PROMISE if doesn't taste like that! It's SUPER yum!
I enjoyed my soup with some whole- grain seed crackers....
It made for one quick, hearty, delicious meal. Soups really don't take that long-- if you have all the ingredients on hand and know what you want to make, it can be done in a flash. Good for rushed nights when you want to make a nutritious, healthy dinner.
And you can't forget the Halloween chocolate....
My breakfast: 1 cup pumpkin puree with 2/3 cup coconut milk, cinnamon and hemp protein topped with chia seeds and dark chocolate with coconut.
And I mean, really dark chocolate:
Off to work for the WHOLE afternoon! Have a good day :)
