BOWL OF SUNSHINE.. on a grey Winter Day

I'm Irish what can I say - yes my favorite food of all time is potatoes... any which way! Lately I have been getting into sweet potatoes though and while I was in Napa I made this soup too. It feels like to me - a bowl of sunshine on a grey Winter day. When you try it, I think you will think so too!

I mean really - if you see me I may be eating french fries [with a salad of course ;)] but I'd been hearing a lot about sweet potatoes, - the flavors in this recipe got me  and well, pumping up the antioxidants, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Sweet potatoes keep you fuller for longer than a regular potato so, ya lets go for it - its ALL GOOD FOR YOU!

A velvety texture from beans instead of dairy. This is a great technique when making blended soups because beans add so much creaminess without the high fat content, plus you get an extra hit of filling fiber. Topped off with crispy, roasted, Ginger-Kissed Pumpkin Seeds, this Sweet Potato Vichyssoise is the updated autumn classic that I have been enjoying all Winter/Summer (straight from the fridge) too.  Try it. I really think you are going to love it TOO!

SUNSHINE IN A BOWL
Serves 4-6

• 3 leeks • 5 cloves garlic • 4 medium sweet potatoes• 6 cups vegetable broth• 1 cup cooked white beans (cannellini, navy, butter…)• knob of coconut oil, * 1 Tbsp olive oil• juice of 1 lemon• 1 tsp. sea salt • cayenne or rooster sauce to taste

WHAT TO DO:

• Prepare leeks by removing the very tip of the root, and the tough, dark green parts at the very top. Chop leeks, then swirl them around in a large bowl of water to remove any dirt (due to how they grow, leeks can have a little grit between their layers).

• In a large stock pot, heat a knob of coconut oil or butter, add turmeric, cayenne and leeks with a teaspoon of sea salt. Stir to coat and let cook on medium heat for five minutes or so, until leeks have softened. Mince garlic and add to the pot.

• Scrub the sweet potatoes, and chop them into rough cubes (leave the skin on!). Add them to the pot, stir and cook for a few minutes. Add broth and beans. Bring a boil, reduce to simmer and cook until sweet potatoes are soft, about 15 – 20 minutes.

• Using a regular blender or stick blender puree the soup until totally creamy. Add olive oil and lemon juice, plus salt to taste if necessary, blend once more and serve with Ginger-Kissed Pumpkin Seeds.

GINGER KISSES
Makes ½ cup

• ½ cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)• ½ Tbsp. olive oil• ½ Tbsp. maple syrup• 1 Tbsp. ginger powder• pinch sea salt

WHAT TO DO: 

• Preheat oven to 300°F / 150°C.

• Toss pumpkin seeds with other ingredients. Place on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes until toasty and fragrant. Remove and let cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

RIP Wayne Dwyer....

I was preparing to speak at an I Can Do It conference and I decided to bring an orange on stage with me as a prop for my lecture. I opened a conversation with a bright young fellow of about twelve who was sitting in the front row.

“If I were to squeeze this orange as hard as I could, what would come out?” I asked him.

He looked at me like I was a little crazy and said, “Juice, of course.”

“Do you think apple juice could come out of it?”

“No!” he laughed.

“What about grapefruit juice?”

“No!”

“What would come out of it?”

“Orange juice, of course.”

“Why? Why when you squeeze an orange does orange juice come out?”

He may have been getting a little exasperated with me at this point.

“Well, it’s an orange and that’s what’s inside.”

I nodded. “Let’s assume that this orange isn’t an orange, but it’s you. And someone squeezes you, puts pressure on you, says something you don’t like, offends you. And out of you comes anger, hatred, bitterness, fear. Why? The answer, as our young friend has told us, is because that’s what’s inside.”

It’s one of the great lessons of life. What comes out when life squeezes you? When someone hurts or offends you? If anger, pain and fear come out of you, it’s because that’s what’s inside. It doesn’t matter who does the squeezing—your mother, your brother, your children, your boss, the government. If someone says something about you that you don’t like, what comes out of you is what’s inside. And what’s inside is up to you, it’s your choice.

When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t want in your life and replace them with love, you’ll find yourself living a highly functioning life.

Thanks, my young friend, and here’s an orange for you!
