SUPERFOOD SIDES

Fall Vibes Cornbread


Gather This:

6 tbsp melted unsalted butter (or canola oil for a healthier version)

2 tbsp unsalted butter (or canola oil for healthier version)

1 ¾ cup cornmeal

½ cup Fall Vibes

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 ½ cup buttermilk

1 Egg


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and place 9” cast iron skillet in oven while it preheats.

Combine the cornmeal, Fall Vibes, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. 

Combine the buttermilk, egg, melted butter(or oil) in a small bowl.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, making sure not to over mix. 

Carefully place the skillet on the stove over high heat. Add the 2 tablespoons of butter (or oil) to the skillet. Pour in the batter, and spread evenly. 

Bake for about 20 minutes. A toothpick should come out of the center clean.


Kale Salad with Green Bee Honey Vinaigrette 


Gather This:

4 bunches kale (chopped into small pieces) 

1 cup pecans (chopped and toasted) 

3 tbsp sesame seeds (toasted) 

1 bunch green onions (sliced on a bias)

½ cup Green Bee Honey

½ cup wildflower honey

¼ cup white balsamic vinegar 

1 ½ cup grapeseed oil

Pinch of salt


Do This:

In a blender or food processor, add the honeys and vinegar. Mix until fully incorporated, very slowly drizzle in the oil. This will create an emulsion, season with salt and pepper to taste. The dressing will keep for 1 week refrigerated and is great on roasted veggies. 

Mix together the chopped kale and honey vinaigrette, really work it into the kale.  Let stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes.  Then toss with the nuts, seeds and green onions. Season to taste. 



MAIN DISHES

Fall Harvest Vegetables

Serves: 10 side portions 


Gather This:

5 pounds of your favorite vegetables, like squash, eggplant, carrots, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Peeled and sliced into bite size pieces.

½ cup grapeseed oil

¼ cup wildflower honey or Philosophie Honey

¼ cup Cacao Magic Coconut Butter

2 tbsp sherry vinegar

1 tbsp kosher salt

10 sprigs thyme

1 bunch rosemary

OTHER TOPPINGS:

Microgreens

Toasted chopped nuts

Toasted seeds

Bee pollen

Pickled vegetables 


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl mix together the oil, honey ,vinegar and salt. Once fully mixed together add the vegetables and herbs. Toss everything together and place on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. 

Cover the tray with foil and roast for 30 minutes. Once the vegetables feel tender to the touch, remove the foil and roast for another 15 to 20 minutes longer. This will allow the vegetables to caramelize a bit and add a ton of flavor. Remove the herbs and toss with your favorite toppings. 

 

SUPERFOOD DESSERTS

Cacao Nice Cream

Makes: 1 Quart


Gather This:

6 oz. dark chocolate (chopped up)

2 cup whole milk (or milk of choice)

2 cup heavy cream

1 cup sugar

½ cup Cacao Bee Honey

5 egg yolks

Pinch of salt


Do This:

Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl, on top of a double boiler. Set aside to cool slightly.

Pour the milk and cream into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. When it just comes to a simmer, whisk in the melted chocolate and turn the heat off. 

Prepare an ice bath. Set up a fine mesh strainer over a clean bowl.

Whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, and honey in a heatproof bowl. Temper ⅓ of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture. Slowly pour the egg mixture back into the pan and stir to incorporate. Turn the heat back on to medium and cook the custard. Stirring constantly and making sure to scrape the sides of the pan so that you don’t curdle the eggs. When the custard starts to steam and it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Immediately pour the mixture through the strainer, and set the bowl in the ice bath. Stir in the salt and let cool. 

Once cool, transfer mixture to an airtight container and refrigerate overnight. The next day churn according to your machine's instructions. 


Cocoa Magic Brownies 


Gather This:

1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour (GF version I prefer Anson Mills GF Blend)

1 cup cocoa

1 cup Cacao Magic

1 ½ tsp salt

2 sticks room temperature unsalted butter (medium dice)

1 cup canola oil

4 large eggs

1 ½ cup sugar

1 cup Cacao Bee Honey

¾ tsp vanilla extract

10 oz. chocolate chips 


Do This:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9” x 13” baking tray and line with parchment paper. 

Melt the butter and mix together with the oil. Set aside to cool.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, cocoa magic, and salt. Set aside to mix in later.  

Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whip the eggs, sugar and honey until the mixture is light and airy about 3-4 minutes. With the mixer running on lowest setting, slowly mix in the dry ingredients alternating with the oil and butter mix. Be careful not to over mix at this stage. Once everything is fully incorporated, remove bowl from mixer and fold in the chocolate chips. Pour brownie mixture into the pan and bake for 50 to 65 minutes. The edges should just start to pull away from the pan, and a tooth pick in the middle should come out clean. Make sure you don’t hit any chocolate chips when you test it.

2 ½ cup vegetable broth

3 garlic cloves (peeled)

2 small shallots or 1/2 sweet onion (peeled + halved)

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Baked Brussels Salad with Green Superfood Dressing

Green veggie salads are NOTHING to be scared of. They can be just as delicious, nutritious and satisfying as any other salad. This baked brussels salad is perfect for those chilly afternoons and it is AMAZING! Make it with family, friends or as a wholesome lunch for just yourself. Add Green Dream to an anchovy oil dressing (TRUST US!), which melts anchovies in their oil then is added in with tahini, lemon and parsley, and creates one of the most savory, satisfying dressings you’ll ever have on a baked salad. 


This roasted brussels salad will feel like a ceasar salad but with a bit fresher and brighter texture. A Green Dream dressing will add an extra dose of nutrients and plant protein. The ingredient list may look long but totally worth it for a salad this filling and flavorful.

Brussel Sprout Salad

Gather This:

1 15 oz. can of chickpeas

1 tbsp za’atar seasoning

1 & ¼ lbs brussels sprouts (approx. 5 cups)

FOR THE DRESSING

1 tin anchovies (optional but so tasty!)

2 cloves garlic minced or grated with a microplane

1 tsp Green Dream

½ cup tahini

1 lemon for juicing

½ cup flat leaf parsley finely chopped

¼ cup cold water


Do This:

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Drain and rinse chickpeas. Dry them well before adding them to a food processor. Pulse until they form chickpea "crumbs." Spread out evenly on a baking sheet.

Generously drizzle the chickpea crumbs with olive oil, then toss in the za'atar and season with salt. Toss with your hands until everything is coated.

Thinly slice brussel sprouts and add them to a separate baking sheet. You want them to have enough space on the pan to breathe and crisp up, so feel free to use two baking sheets if needed. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Add the chickpeas and the brussel sprouts to the oven, with the chickpeas on the highest rack. Bake the brussel sprouts for 20-22 minutes, and the chickpeas for 25-30 minutes or until dry and crisp.

Green Superfood Dressing

While the brussel sprouts and chickpeas are roasting, make the GREEN DREAM DRESSING.

Put a small saucepan on medium low heat. Add in just the oil from the tin of anchovies, and let it heat up. Then add the anchovies to the pan, they should immediately sizzle and begin to "melt" into the oil.

Add the grated garlic into the pan with the anchovy oil. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until you can no longer taste any raw garlic. This will look like a thick paste.

Add this paste, the tahini, the juice from one lemon, the Green Dream and the parsley to a bowl. Combine everything to a blender for a light green sauce. 


Remove the brussel sprouts and chickpea crumble from the oven. Drizzle a good amount of the dressing onto the brussel sprouts and give them a toss in the pan.

To serve, pile the brussel sprouts into two bowls. Sprinkle the chickpea crumbles on top. ENJOY!
