Mushrooms are hard for many to include into their diet, due to texture, knowledge, or lack there of. For me, personally, its a texture issue. When you find the right way to include them mushrooms are packed with health benefits!
This Savory Mushroom Gravy will make anyone squeamish about mushrooms enjoy them without hesitation!
Its smokey, its sweet, and adds a bite to any dish. Oh, and its super simple to make, like all my recipes!
You Can have your Stuffing and enjoy it too, without the whole, actual “stuffing” aspect.
Seriously why do we do the things we do sometimes?
Admittedly, I’ve had both, and I’m pretty sure most of you have had, well, just the other–BUTT–thats why you’re here. (see what I did there) This recipe doesn’t just taste good, it taste BETTER than traditional style of stuffing.
I get it, How can it be “stuffing if theres no stuffing?” And to that I have to really question whether taking that portion of the process out affects he outcome of “Amazing taste and flavor.” Traditionally speaking, we need to change at some point and think differently even if we want to still call stuffing, “stuffing” when theres no actual stuffing bread into a dead body.
“Tradition run in our families because disease runs in our families”
So, think differently, I mean, how many years do you want to do the same thing every year? Even if you hold pride to the weird act of making stuffing, why not try something, just one year out of the many, differently.
I would also advise you to literally double, or triple this recipe because you’re going to regret not doing it when its gone! This recipe has stood the test of time, many mouths, and lots of feedback-your going to like the way it tastes!
If you learn anything from me it is that you need these in your life.
Whoever said you need butter to make a biscuit, has never actually lived! Every time they come out Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Its almost like your a professional baker. You’ll be craving these the minute their gone so make sure you yell pass the biscuits first at the table and take definitely take two or three for yourself!
Although they take some work, they complete the meal. I also like to use them to make sandwiches, for veggie soups, and they go great with a breakfast tofu scramble! -Especially if you like your scramble on the spicier side!
Im not going to waist too much time with this recipe you need to just drop everything right now and start making them!
I don’t normally eat white flesh potatoes due to their oxidative effects which in turn increases inflammation. However, that doesn’t put white flesh potatoes on the complete red light food map, but more on the caution side.
During intense training, exercise, and competition, we want to decrease all factors of oxidative stress, increase anti-oxidants, and boost recovery. White flesh potatoes may work against us in our desire to achieve optimal health, yet I do not want to demonize them. Consumption can come on a moderate basis, and theres ways we can not make their oxidative effects more pronounced.
First, lets go deeper and darker down the potato line. Choosing a darker flesh potato has more anti-oxidant properties. Sweet potatoes with orange flesh are a better choice than white potatoes, but Purple Sweet Potatoes are best. This is where we can hit Strategy 005:
Strategy 005: When choosing a food, its not whether or not its healthy as it own, but you have ask the question, “compared to what?”
For example, grains are good, rice is a grain, and since grains are good, rice is there fore good–Right? But there are a lot of different types of rice. Is white rice, good? Now you see, brown rice is better, but even red rice is better than brown and black rice is better that red.
Rice in general? What about Quinoa, barley, or oats? So, you can see you can go general or specific, and you can apply that generally to all forms of fruits, veggies, beans, legumes, starches, nuts, and seeds. Specifically you can ask the same about apples type, cabbage color, and even different teas.
Perception Over Perfection
Okay, this looks confusing at first. It make soy think well I don’t know whats healthier and I just give up.
Don’t be that person. . .
This isn’t about the perfection, and a white potato is not going to kill you! The starch, fiber, and nutrition content seem to balance out to some degree. Even eating white rice is not all that bad compared to eating no grains at all. And so this brings us to Strategy 006:
Strategy 006: The best plant food is not the healthiest one. The best is the one that you will eat the most of.
In another instance, cooking method could follow the same methodology as choosing healthier foods in Strategy 007:
Strategy 007: The healthiest way to prepare a food is the way that you will eat it the most.
Everyone thinks eating plants is so restrictive, but these strategies make it more inclusive than selective and leave you room to grow.
Now, of course there are some TERMS AND CONDITIONS to these statements. We’re talking about WHOLE PLANT FOODS that these guidelines follow. We’re not being sympathetic to eating mash potatoes and duping a ton of butter on them and saying, “hey, this is the best way or me.” That just is not going to fly.
Stay within the realm of applying these strategies to Whole-foods, centered around Plant-Based sources.
You known what they say, Once you go purple, you’ll never go back. . .Or something like that?
Did you know Purple Sweet Potatoes are a staple amongst the healthiest cultures in the world!?
This is a food that makes it own introduction and needs no filter to make a first impression at any table, gathering, or event!
I like to keep my recipes simple and rememberable. You don’t always want to run back to a list of instructions every time. The best part is that these potatoes pack so much flavor that they need very little work past cleaning and cooking.
I admit, most of the time I will just wash one of these, poke some holes in it, pop it into the microwave, and click the potato button.
BOOM! YOU HAVE A MEAL ON THE GO!
I strongly believe these will make their way into many more Americans lives as the landscape of nutrition shifts away from the Standard American Diet (SAD).
I also strongly believe the potato button on the microwave is the most under rated button !
On my instagram page Teddieddie , I strongly encourage you to visit Some Nutrition Facts I have put together on Purple Sweet Potatoes HERE!
Heres what you need to do to cut time, efficiency and make the most out of this!
Start your water before prepping the potatoes
* Boiling is the healthiest way to cook a potato
* Microwaving is the second healthiest way to cook a potato
Peel the potatoes
Although the skin has the most Anti-Oxidants this will reduce time of scrubbing and cleaning!
Leaving the skins on does not change the recipe just makes it healthier!
Chop the potatoes into pieces no larger than 1 inch
This significantly cuts cooking time! It also helps when you go to blend the potatoes the smaller pieces are relatively easier
Not too much liquid
The potatoes will have a lot of water density. Add your non-dairy milk accordingly in small splashes as you mix
Patients while blending
Take your time and blend them well, unless you like a chunky mash (I’m not a fan)
