2 tbsp  chia seeds
1/2 cup  water
1/2 cup  coconut milk

Optional additions
honey or maple syrup to sweeten
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Mix all ingredients together. Be sure seeds do not clump and are covered by the liquid ingredients.

Cover and soak overnight in the refrigerator or for a minimum of four hours.

Top with apple sauce, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, berries, or shredded coconut.

1 1/2 c chick peas, cooked*
2 cloves, garlic
1 lemon, juiced
1/3 c tahini or almond butter
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/3 c water
sea salt to taste

Purée all ingredients in a food processor. Add more water, olive oil or cooking water from the beans to obtain the desired consistency.

*Experiment by using beans other than chick peas. This recipe works well with a variety of beans. I've used kidney beans and navy beans with great success.

 

 

 

1 bunch kale
1 tbsp olive oil
juice of half a lemon
¼ teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 350˚F (175˚C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Break kale leaves into bite sized pieces in a bowl. Discard the stems. Wash and dry kale thoroughly. Add olive oil, lemon and sea salt.

Bake 10 or 15 minutes. Be sure to watch the kale carefully so it does not burn. Remove from oven when dry and crispy.

Break up into smaller pieces.
