Vegan Gluten-Free Soy Free Cheeze (Yeah Baby Yeah!)

Okay! First off giving honor to God (heehee) I am grateful that I am able to post this as a recipe. After the first experiment was a success, I wanted to share it with the world. Soooooooo here we go!

1/4 cup of organic chopped cashews
1 1/2 cup of water
3 TBSP of organic lemon juice
i TBSP of miso
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp of garlic
1/4 tsp of yellow mustard powder
1 tsp of realsalt
1/4 tsp of dill
2 TBSP of organic tahini
5 tsp of agar agar flakes
Place water into a sauce pan to slight boil. While water is preparing, put cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, garlic, mustard powder, realsalt, tahini and dill into a food processor or blender. When water is simmered add agar agar flakes. Gently but consistently stir till it gels evenly (about ten minutes). Turn off stove and dump water and agar agar mix into the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Blend thoroughly and stop occasionally to scrape down the sides. Blend again. Processing should take approximately five minutes. When finished, pour contents into a tube or container to let mold. refrigerate overnight. It is finished. Slice, grate, do what you will. But please enjoy it!

Super Green Potatoes!

I've long had a concern that our Son Ife has not been getting enough green vegetables in his diet. He often says, "I don't want to eat it" whenever I try to feed his kale or collard greens. However, he LUVS potatoes! And just the other day I found a way to 'sneak' this health vegetable into his breakfast. It's what inspired me to come up with this recipe:
8 regular sized red potatoes. Rinsed and cut into quarters
1 medium sized onion, diced
2 leaves of fresh organic lacinato kale, diced
1/4 tsp of cumin seeds
2 tbsp of virgin coconut oil or olive oil
2 garlic cloves, diced
1/4 cup of water.
1,2 tsp of realsalt
1/2 tsp of dulse flakes
1/4 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of nutritional yeast flakes
Put oil into pan to heat. Add cumin seeds. When it pops add garlic, then onions and the potatoes. While potatoes are cooking, place greens in a blender with water and blend until fine. When potatoes are finished cooking add 'green water' and simmer. Mix in remaining spices and serve!

At first Ife didn't want to touch it. A moment later, he reconsidered and said he wanted it with avacado. I mixed in avacado and he ate three bowls. "Yumm! "he declared.
