CHICKEN ADOBO
( I think the original recipe came from America's Test Kitchen or Cooks Country)
Serves 4

4 chicken thighs
Soy sauce
1 can Coconut Milk or Coconut Cream
4 Bay leaves
8 Garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
2 tsp. Black Pepper

Marinate the thighs in a little Soy Sauce for 15 mins. With COLD pan, add chicken skin side down, turn on medium heat and cook until brown and fat has rendered out, drain fat. Add Coconut milk or cream, bay leaves, garlic and black pepper. Simmer 45 mins. or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and reduce sauce. Serve over rice, quinoa or millet.

ROASTED BEET AND DANDELION SALAD
2 Large or 4 med beets. Roast in the skin at 325 for an hour or more until a knife goes in easily.
Cool.
If the skins are not too tough I like to keep them on. Other wise peel them. cut into 1/2" cubes. finely chop 1 or 2 cloves of garlic (or more).
slice thin and small, 1 med onion.
2 cups (at least) of chopped fresh dandelion greens.
Dress with 3 TBS olive oil and a dash of vinegar (I like to use the herb infused vinegars that I'm making and am particularly enamored with Shisho lately).Salt to taste. Marinate in the fridge for several hours, stirring occaisionally.

ItalianBee....one could replace the soysauce with coconut amino acids or even just a liitle salt. I think the recipe does need the 'salty' flavor, maybe float a small piece of seaweed.

WhiteHorse...yum! And yum again using infused vinegar!
Yesterday at my clients house I oven roasted 3 organic beets for a lovely salad today, they weren't quite done so I turned the oven off and let the residual heat finish them. I forgot them!
I was home 2 hours when I remembered, I sent a txt to my relief caregiver who somehow misunderstood my txt and did nothing about the beets that are still sitting in the clients oven hahaha I have some explaining to do. Oh Bother!)
Shisho, my son gave me a handful a couple years ago, maybe I made a vinegar....hoping I made vinegar...I think I did...better go look...
