Fish Coconut Curry with Cauliflower & Sweet Potatoes

Fish Coconut Curry with 
Cauliflower & Sweet Potatoes

A "shoot from the hip" recipe Stan and I worked out for a quick, last minute dinner with stuff we had in our pantry and fridge. It's a fast, hearty, nourishing meal. We've been enjoying a lot of cauliflower lately, so this was a new way to enjoy it.

Cauliflower-Sweet Potato Soup with Ras el Hanout



Cauliflower-Sweet Potato Soup with Ras el Hanout
*******
Makes 15 Cups
Serves 7 to 15 people 
Fifteen 1-cup servings OR seven 2-cup bowls

If you want a nourishing soup this is it. I love Ras el Hanout so much that sometimes I just open the jar to enjoy the fragrance. I had fun creating this recipe and Stan said it's a keeper. This is a great recipe to use up fresh chicken broth after making Poule au Pot (poached chicken and vegetables) the day before. You may find there aren't too many leftovers of this soup, people magically wander to your house the day it gets made (college kids) or you hear about sick neighbors that need soup.

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream
Makes 1 quart

I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.
