Crust Ingredients
  1. 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  2. 3 tbsp maple syrup
  3. 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  4. 7 tbsp pumpkin puree at room temp. (
  5. dash of salt
  6. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  7. 1/2 cup coconut flour
  8. 3 tbsp tapioca flour
Filling Ingredients
  1. 1 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  2. 1 cup coconut oil, very soft or liquefied (but not hot)
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  4. 6 tbsp maple syrup
  5. 2 tsp vanilla extract
  6. pinch of salt
  7. 1 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1/8 tsp of each: cloves, allspice, and nutmeg
Spiderweb Ingredients
  1. 2-3 tbsp almond milk
  2. 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil,
  3. 2 tbsp coconut manna (coconut butter), warmed until liquefied
  4. 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  5. 1/2 tbsp tapioca starch
Directions
  1. 1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. Oil your tart pan and set aside.
  2. 2. Place coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin puree, salt, and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl and use an immersion blender to blend the mixture into a smooth consistency (note: if you don’t have an immersion blender, blend all the ingredients in a regular blender and then pour into a mixing bowl). Add coconut and tapioca flours and mix well using a wooden spoon until everything is thoroughly combined.
  3. 3. Scoop out the mixture into the pan. Use your hands to press the mixture down along the bottom and up around the walls of the pan forming the crust. Use a fork to pierce some holes along the base of the crust to prevent bubbling during baking. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow the crust to cool in the pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
  4. 4. In the meantime, place all chocolate filling ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until mixture is smooth (you may need to pause and scrape down the sides a few times in the process to make sure it’s well blended). Once the tart shell has cooled, pour this mixture into the tart and smooth out the top with a spatula.
  5. 5. Blend the spiderweb mixture ingredients together until fully smooth. Note: start with just 2 tbsp milk and increase the quantity only if necessary so that the mixture is runny but not too thin.
  6. 6. Pour the spiderweb mixture into a squirt-bottle or piping bag and pour onto the top of the tart in a spiral pattern, starting in the center of the tart and drawing the spiral rings out until you reach the edges. Then use a wooden skewer (or something similar), and gently draw a line from the center of the tart to the outer edge. Repeat this going all around the tart until you’ve created a spiderweb.

Stuff this..(Paleo Stuffed Acorn Squash)

Paleo Acorn Squash, yet another delicious and filling meal that’s perfect for colder weather (really, any weather). This is a meal that Stuffed-Acorn-Squash-Photo3almost everyone will love. Quite honestly,  I had never eaten an Acorn Squash until I embraced eating Paleo, now I don’t think there is a better tasting squash out there. Acorn squash is typically green. New varieties are white (Table Queen) or a pumpkin color (Golden Acorn). All varieties have a firm yellow-orange flesh. How to select: Choose a squash with a smooth, dry rind with no cracks or soft spots. The squash should have a dull rind. A shiny rind means it was picked too early and will not have full sweetness. Select a squash with as much green on the rind as possible. Too much orange means the squash is over ripe and it will be dry and stringy.

  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  5. 1/2 tsp. kosher or sea salt
  6. 2 tbl. honey
  7. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  8. 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  9. 1 cup arrowroot powder
  10. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  11. For the Filling
  12. 5 pitted dates
  13. 1/2 cup raw pecans
  14. 2 tbl. cinnamon
  15. 1 tbl. maple syrup
  16. 2 tbl. coconut oil, melted
For the Icing
  1. 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  2. 1/8 cup arrowroot powder
  3. 1 tbl. maple syrup
  4. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. For the dough
  2. In a stand mixer combine the wet ingredients followed by the dry ingredients. Mix until a wet/sticky dough forms.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Spread the dough over the parchment paper and cover the dough with a second sheet of parchment paper.
  5. Using a rolling pin spread the dough out between the layers of parchment paper until it is about the size of the baking sheet.
  6. Chill the dough until it is firm.
While your dough is chilling prepare the filling
  1. Add dates, pecans, cinnamon, coconut oil, and maple syrup into food processor and process until you have a finely ground sticky filling (it will begin to ball up in the food processor).
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Peel the top sheet of parchment paper off the dough and ensure that the dough is stiff.
  4. Using the back of a large spoon, spread the filling in a very thin even layer over the dough. Carefully, while using the under layer of parchment paper to assist you, roll the dough along the short side (so your rolled dough will be shorter and thicker). If any cracks form just press the dough gently together where it cracked.
  5. Once the dough is rolled cut it into eight even pieces and place the pieces cut side up in a round cake pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
  6. While the rolls are still in he oven raise the temperature to 400°F and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool.
Icing
  1. Blend coconut oil, arrowroot powder, maple syrup, and vanilla in your stand mixer.

$6.00 for a bottle of Asparagus Water?

“Nobody should be buying pre-made asparagus water when you make it yourself every time you eat asparagus.”

In a new clip, comedian and host of HBO’s Last Week Tonight John Oliver took issue with Whole Foods’ asparagus water, and the company’s eventual apology and explanation. Giddy, and agitated, he launches into the segment: “First, nobody should be buying pre-made asparagus water when you make it yourself for free every time you eat asparagus.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9gGL1cnnhg

On Whole Foods’ apology and explanation that the water was supposed to be more like vegetable broth, Oliver says, “Yeah, that doesn’t sound any less terrible… oh, we won’t just sell you asparagus stalks in a jar of water… that way we can call the leftover wet asparagus ‘artisanally moistened,’ and sell it for three times the price… it’s the Whole Foods way.” Oliver has a better idea for how Whole Foods’ reps should apologize: By promoting its other unique items, including, “Two baby carrots tied together with artisanal twine, or… refreshing probiotic avocado ice… a block of ice with an avocado balanced on top of it.” It gets even better, watch the full clip above.
