Carrot Pudding

This is adapted from the "Carrot Mousse Cake" at http://gapsguide.com/2008/12/11/a-week-of-winter-dinners/ . It is austere, but highly delicious if you have been off all refined carbohydrates for awhile and have really tasty, sweet carrots.

10 large carrots, steamed till soft
1/2-3/4 cup ghee
2-inch piece of peeled, chopped fresh ginger (1 tsp. powdered)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
Zest from a large organic lemon (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a vitamix or with a hand-held blender. Bake in a greased pan for about 60 minutes at 350f.

GAPS Pureed Soup

This is an all-purpose soup that can be varied in infinite ways. This recipe makes approximately 8-12 cups. We don't eat it plain, but make it into "egg things" http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/recipes/gaps-egg-things, which is essentially a solidified liquid diet for a severely picky GAPS patient.

1/4 cup fat (chicken fat, lard, ghee, coconut oil, or a mixture)
2 onions (and 2 stalks celery, if desired)
6 large garlic cloves

2 lbs. ground beef or chicken parts (no bones)
~2-3 quarts chopped veggies: cabbage, zucchini, etc.
Lots of salt and pepper
herbs (we like lots of oregano)

Greens Souffle

1 1/4 pounds greens--mustard, kale, etc. (steamed, squeezed to expel
extra water, and chopped)
1/2 c. milk/milk substitute
1/2 c. dried tomatoes, or fresh or canned (drained)
8 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt (increase if omitting cheese)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 c. Parmesan
small diced onion

Optional: put 2 c. cooked rice, salt and pepper, and 2 tbsp. olive
oil in the bottom of the 9x13" baking dish (gives the souffle more
substance).

Mix all ingredients together and bake ~45 minutes at 350f.

Delicious Baked Oatmeal

This is a great way to use up any leftover grain (for cooking instructions, see http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/recipes/how-soak-brown-rice )

2 tsp. cinnamon
zest from one organic orange
2 pears (shredded or grated)
Dash of vanilla extract
3-4 cups of leftover cooked oatmeal

Mix well, pour into a buttered 9x13" or so baking pan. Bake at 350f for about an hour, until golden brown and just set (160f when you insert an instant-read thermometer into the center). Eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks!!
