Alkalinizing and Energizing Picnic Slaw

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Total Time: 15 Minutes

Ingredients

For the slaw:

  • ½ of a large green cabbage
  • ¼ of a medium red cabbage
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley for garnish (optional)

For the dressing:

  • 2/3 cup avocado mayo
  • 1 tablespoon organic cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon smoked Celtic sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ of a green bell pepper
  • 1 large carrot
  • ½ of a medium onion

Instructions

  1. Shred both the green and red cabbage into a bowl. You can either use a knife or a mandolin. Use a grater to grate the carrot into the same bowl.  Set aside.
  2. For the dressing, quarter the carrot, onion and green pepper and put in a food processer. Add the mayo, 1T organic cane sugar, 2 T apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp celery seed, 1 tsp smoked Celtic sea salt and 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper. Process for approximately 20 seconds. (note: dressing will be a little lumpy due to the carrots. That’s ok because it gives a great texture and color to the slaw)
  3. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to serving bowl and top with chopped parsley (optional).
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes up to overnight and serve.

Vegan Alkaline Apple Pie Recipe

Yield: 8 servings
Prep time: 30 min
Total time: 1 hour 15 min

Ingredients

Crust: (1 large crust or 2 small)
2/3 cup coconut oil, cold
2 cups coconut flour
5 Tablespoons hot water

Filling:

7 apples (granny smith)
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 Tablespoons tapioca flour
1 Tablespoon cinnamon powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cloves powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1/8 teaspoon ginger powder

Directions

Crust:

Combine the coconut oil with the coconut flour and the hot water until smooth.

Make sure not to overwork the dough. Put dough in the fridge for 10 min before rolling it out.

Roll out the dough a little larger than the pie dish.

Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch pie dish. Before baking the crust, poke the bottom with a fork. Bake crust at 400°F for 15 minutes.

Now, time to work on the filling.

1. You will need a large bowl to combine to apples and spices.

2. Peel, core and cut the apples.

3. Add coconut sugar, tapioca flour, cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg and ginger.

4. Mix all together then pour it into the pie dish.

(It is ok for the apples to be in a big pile, they will cook down.)

Get creative!

You can add a top crust; dough cuts out or weave design. (Add coconut oil on top to help the crust brown.)

Bake at 425°F for 40 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.
