remember my feelings on whirred food? i don’t think this counts, but i did purree something scrumptious and nutritious for a delightful visit from joe and sarah.
adapted from cook, eat, think , a nifty food blog from a former chef/unschooling artist mama.
2 Tbsp coconut oil
handful shittake mushrooms, chopped roughly
6 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped
saute in large, large pot
when saute mixture is soft and fragrant add
4 cups broth (i used a thai/coconut curry themed one i found at publix, any basic broth would work)
5-6 red skinned boiling potatoes, chopped, unpeeled
boil at medium-medium high, covered, for 30 minutes until potatoes are tender
4 cups chopped kale
1 sheet nori or other seaweed, chopped
2 Tbsp green curry
continue at medium, covered, for 15 minutes
use a food processor to blend your concoction to smooth (or if you’re fancy, an immersion blender)
return mixture to pot, add
1 cup cream
1 cup of half-and-half
1 tsp coarse sea salt
simmer on low, 15 minutes.
