Hot and Sour Soup with Collard Greens and Tofu

February 4th, 2017 by

Collard greens! Interested in nutrients that support the body’s detox system, antioxidant system, and inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system? Not sure how to prepare them? I wasn’t. We were out of greens and I had just a few minutes to stop at a small local store.  The only greens available were collard greens, so I snatched them up.  When I got home, I stood there looking at them wondering what in the world to do with them. As I tried to imagine how I might most enjoy them, I decided to make a tasty broth of vegetable bouillon, aminos, rice vinegar, hot sauce, with a touch of peanut butter. I stirred in diced tofu and topped with crushed peanuts and chili flakes. It turned out to be a super fast and delicious way to enjoy these powerful greens. Go get some collard greens and give them a try!

Kale Chili

March 27th, 2015 by

Whenever I am asked what my favorite food is, I often think of Kale.  Kale gets 1000 on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index (ANDI)–a which rates foods on a scale from 1 to 1000 based on nutrient content. I especially love Kale in warm dishes. I had some leftover tangy chili and decided to add in a bunch of Kale.  It is delicious. I hope you enjoy this organic kale chili with a super food boost of nutrition!

This nutritious and bold soup is quick to make and very satisfying.  Just boil water, amino acids, rice vinegar, hot sauce, garlic and a little sesame oil to make the broth. Throw in organic green onions, diced carrots, shredded cabbage, mushrooms, cubed tofu, and soba buckwheat noodles (if desired). In 3-4 minutes, you have a hot, delicious soup.  Alternatively, you can pull the veggies and tofu from the broth and heap them over brown rice for a complete meal. Enjoy!
