Sweet Potatoes with Rose Petals

20140207-192802.jpg

This dish is wonderful and Kauai’s incredibly rich purple sweet potatoes make it even better. Here I used a mixture of purple and regular yellow sweet potatoes. Rose petals of all colors are from Myra’s rose bushes. This dish is augmenting, sweet, and nourishing. Cinnamon is warming and sweet, coriander and rose petals are cooling. Make with coconut oil (more cooling, extractive) or ghee (balancing).

10 c sweet potatoes, skins removed and chopped
4 T ghee
2 t mineral salt
2 T sweet cinnamon powder
1 1/2 T coriander powder
1/2 c dried rose petals
Water (or tea) as needed

Heat ghee, add salt, cinnamon and coriander until aroma comes up. Add potatoes and stir to coat. Add water to fill 1/3 level of the potatoes (or you can add more and cook longer for extra creamy, kinda mashed potatoes). I also like using tea for this step…chai, vanilla rooibos , and honeybush are all great. I cooked these potatoes for about 30 mins, stirring occasionally at first, then let them simmer once they were soft.

Enjoy with appreciation for these sweet, sweet morsels of nutrition from the earth! Thank you farmers!

First meal off the cleanse

Today we had separate foods for dinner, our first meal coming off the kitchadi cleanse. After a week of one-pot meals where the foods had time to stew together and get to know each other for a while before being eaten, we wanted to make this meal nice and easy to digest, so i used ingredients that are also in kitchadis. This way, the body would not be shocked into digesting a bunch of foods with very different qualities. White basmati rice is the easiest grain to digest, and split mung (mung daal) the easiest bean. Broccoli is a favorite of the Japanese ladies, and we also had sweet turnips. The fresh oregano from Durga Farm on Kauai is amazing- some leaves the size of my palm! Oregano is also a great herb for digestion.
