Roasted Mushroom and Cauliflower Soup

A delicious and way healthier alternative to the canned 'cream of mushroom' soup that would emerge in a gelatinous blob, often with a questionable-sounding plop? Cauliflower is often considered one of the healthiest foods on earth- and there is good reason why. With its rich supply of health-promoting phyto-chemicals, high level of anti-inflammatory compounds, and ability to ward off cancer, heart disease, brain disease, and even weight gain- it seems there isn’t much cauliflower can’t do. Roasting the mushrooms and cauliflower brings out the best of the vegetables from some time in the oven, deepening the flavors for this quick and hearty soup. Substitute the creme fresh for unsweetened cashew or canned coconut milk.

Lamb Sliders with Celery-Yogurt Sauce

Vibrant Method “Approved Recipe” sourced from Whole Foods.

Lamb is one of my favorite adrenal-support red meats. It's the first animal protein I reintroduced into my diet when realizing a vegetarian, then vegan, then back to vegetarian diet was depleting my system. I eat red meat at most twice a week, but feel this (and bison) are the best animal sources of Vitamins B12, B3, protein, and selenium. Make sure to purchase high-quality, organic, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. These slider-style burgers offer an easy and fun introduction to the delicious taste of lamb. These sliders are topped with skyr, a tangy Icelandic dairy product with a thick consistency like strained yogurt, and a sprinkling of celery leaves. If you cant find skyr, then use organic, plain, full-fat greek yogurt. If you are intolerant to wheat or gluten, substitute the buns for Udi's gluten-free brand. Serve along side sweet potato fries and a super-greens salad.
