In our kitchen, we don’t strive for perfection, we aim for nourishment that can sustain us for the work we feel called to do while on this planet. That includes thinking about sustainability, buying local, and creating food seasonally. Planning parties when you have all sorts of different food preferences present. Its definitely a journey to find what tastes good and appeals to others however with experimentation, it can be done.

Steam the beets and potatoes in a slow cooker or over the stove until soft… approx 30 minutes.
Puree the beets, potato, and quinoa in a food-processor to give approx 2 cups of wet ingredients.
Mix all the dry goods together and begin adding to the beet mixture.
Pay attention to blending, as the mixture becomes thicker, you may need to stop adding dry goods or need to add little extra water. The consistency you are looking for is that it does not fall apart in your hands when you reach and make a patty. If you notice that you have run out of dry parts, just add extra falafel mix. You will not go wrong with this.
The reason for the variability in adding less or more dry ingredients has to do with the moisture content of your veggies. It will change every time so it is ideal to think about being flexible with how these are combined.
Once small patties are formed, you can bake them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or warm over a medium heat on nonstick skillet until lightly browned on each side.
Serve with your choice of condiments – we love fancy relishes and jellies and fresh pickles.
2 tbsp tapioca starch (can sub 2 cups cooked butternut squash and carrots if desired)
1cup yellow or orange bell pepper
1 jalapeno if desired
Presoak cashews 4-8 hours.
Combine all ingredients into a high-speed blender and puree for 1-2 minutes to give a smooth consistency. Can add additional spices for your own flavor.
If using squash instead of tapioca starch, prebook the butternut squash. I place it into the oven at 350 for 60 minutes.
Cook over medium high heat until low boil and whisk to maintain even consistency. You can also use a slo cooker but it is good idea to stir from time to time.
Add additional spices for your own flavor.

Food Can Be a Powerful Tool for Creating Health
The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing just one of these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking a meal with healthier ingredients, you can improve your health. These recipes are great options for not having dairy and meat heavy meals around game day celebrations.
Recreating Favorites for Vegan Game Day Celebrations
Can you make a meal that someone who is not plant-based will enjoy? Most definitely and we did it all the time in our home. These crispy sir fired mushroom tenders are a great alternative to chicken.
Most ketchups bought at the store are high in high fructose corn syrup which we know would like to avoid at all costs. Making your own tomato chutney is quick, delicious and helps you keep track of the hidden sources of this dangerous dietary additive. You Can find this in the smashed potatoes recipe.
Hop on the video below to explore an abbreviated version of how I make to make the potatoes and ketchup.
