Shamanic Recipes ~ From the Earth, for The Soul

Organic Vegetable-Nut Cakes, with Delicious Salad Duo

This has to be one of my favorite, and most simple, new dishes!!! In fact after I made it, I simply had to photograph and share it here with you (I did this within immediately I was so excited).

Yum!! It made me feel really happy, as I tried something new and different. I have this amazing (male)voice in my head, whom I call Spirit Chef, who whispers in my ear when I pull things out of the fridge. I have to admit that I didn’t cook the vegetable cake today – it was left over from yesterday and I served it cold – delicious!

When I was guided to grate the carrot, I became really excited as I instantly tasted ginger in my mouth, and Spirit Chef said – “Yes – do it!” So I grated some ginger onto the carrot, at the same realizing that cabbage was the next essential ingredient. Then for a dressing – simple – the lemon was sitting on the chopping board from my lemon water – so a gentle squeeze – and YUM!!

Another secret – I cooked some yummy seed bread and smothered it with avocado (no butter) off my plate, and sprinkled it with pepper, and when I finally sat down and ate it, it was all so divine, I felt like I was in heaven.

We are having friends around for dinner tonight, and Spirit Chef and I are cooking a white vegetable curry (we are having a flute circle afterwards and I figured the white will connect us well with Spirit), and Jasmine rice, with zucchini and cashew nut stir-fry, and sesame pumpkin. If I remember to, and can find batteries for my camera, I will post it here tomorrow, or as soon as I can.

Until then – go well, in gratitude, always, and all ways.

Aloha – Heather, with love.
