Sweet Potato, Corn and Kale Chowder from Clean Food by Terry Walters
- 1 Tablespoon oil

- 2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 cups vegetable stock

In a large pot over medium heat, sauté onion in oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Add celery, carrots, sweet potatoes, corn, thyme and stock. Simmer 5 minutes. Add enough rice milk to cover vegetables. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add cashew butter. Partially purée using handheld blender. Add kale and return to heat. Thin to desired consistency with water or stock and cook until kale is tender. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 6

- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1/2 cup dried, shredded coconut
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Put the nuts in the food processor first until finely chopped. Add the coconut oil and the rest of the ingredients one by one until a ball of dough forms. Spoon out the mixture and roll it into balls. Place in the refrigerator to set for an hour or so. A half an hour before eating them, take them out of the fridge and enjoy!
