Planning A Party, Why Not Try A Veggie Trio Puree

May be now is the time to make a confession - I hate cooking the same old stuff over and over again. And mainly because of that I spend years of rebelling against myself and convincing everybody around me that I hate cooking. My husband was the only one who didn’t give up on me. He kept on saying everything I made was delicious and I kept on disagreeing.

Only when I started paying attention to what’s healthy, my view changed. I figured out that it’s a whole new world out there with tons of interesting and amazing recipes. With numerous challenges on using the right kinds of ingredients to create a healthy recipe. My kitchen became the most adorable spot in the house and I became addicted to preparing new meals every day. The possibilities turned out to be endless – raw desserts, vegan treats, healthy dishes… All new, all challenging… my boredom with food was finally over.

The idea behind the colorful trio puree came to me while I was thinking of potato puree. How could I come up with a version of the potato puree, say using broccoli, cauliflower or even carrots without over complicating the ingredients. I ended up with three purees made with the simplest ingredients, just the vegetable, coconut oil, lime and salt. The challenge this time will be on you – to make your own twists by adding different herbs, spices, cheeses or whatever :) Or leave them as they are, the choice is yours.

My friends are freezing in New York City and since they are buried up to their chins in snow, I thought I would try to warm them up with my favorite cauliflower soup. This is a smooth, rich and very flavorful soup. I paired it with a side of Roasted Sweet Potato fries. You can use them for dipping or go crazy like my BF and just toss them in for a bit of color. Enjoy Monkies and keep warm!

Cauliflower Samosas
with banana tamarind sauce, mango chutney, and mint (raw)

Samosas – deep – fried vegetarian turnovers - are a classic Indian street food. Our version is a bit more delicate than the friend variety, but incredibly savory. You can make them a few hours ahead and keep them warming on trays in the dehydrator, this also keeps them dry, so they won’t stick together, as they would if you piled them up and set them aside. They are a perfect hors d’oeuvre, or you could serve just a few of them per plate as a starter.

Recipe by Sarma Mengailis | Raw Food Real World (Harper Collins, 2005)

Serves 4 (About 20 Samosas)

For the samosa wraps:

2 cups young coconut meat

1 1/2 cups coconut water (or more)

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1/2 teaspoon sea salt
