Allergy Free Beet Stir Fry v2.0
If you’ve ever seen our Cookbooks, you’ll know that we have Beet Stir Fry. The kids call it Red Heaven. I kid you not, that’s what they call it. Like always, I think they’re messing around with me, but apparently, Beet Stir Fry is just epic. Now, let’s be honest, half the fun of having a blog like this is doing something different. If I always made Beet Stir Fry the same old way, there wouldn’t be much to share with you. So, I decided to take something old and turn it into something new. Although I really love making new concepts, playing with old favorites is great too. This one was quite special, and the kids loved it so much.
Traditional Beet Stir Fry uses red beets, so I opted for gold beets this time around. I also added in ingredients such as mushroom and green onion to add new depths of flavor. If you’re not a huge beet fan, try steaming one and eating it with salt. When I was first introducing the kids to beets, I did this, and they thought it tasted like a rich buttery potato. Then I introduced them to Beet Stir Fry (which isn’t really stir fry at all), and there was no turning back.

Simple Pork Stew
Now that we have a combo slow cooker & pressure cooker, I can promise there’s going to be a lot of stews and slow cooked meals shared. Today, I have a simple pork stew to share.
What never ceases to surprise me is how you can combine a few fresh, simple, ingredients, and end p with something everyone is in love with. This is totally one of those times.

Organic Pulled Prok
Online, we’ve been able to connect with a lot of new people. One of them, @theunskilledcavewoman on Instagram, loves using her combo slow cooker. We posted about pear dish a while back, and she used that as an idea to create something totally rad in her pot. I had been thinking about a slow cooker for a while until that point, and that’s what pushed me over the edge. We ended up getting a combo slow cooker and pressure cooker. I’ve always wanted both, and Kid Two and I saw a really cool demo last year and knew we needed it. Fast forward, and we get one. The Papa immediately says, “We have to have pulled pork!” So that’s what I set about making. Pulled pork in the pressure cooker, then slow cooked with sauce. Although this is a labor intensive and time intensive project, according to everyone that ate it, you won’t regret it at all. If I could go back and do anything differently, I would have made more so there would be more leftovers. They ate most of it the night I made it. Not sure if I should be happy or sad about that.

Mashed Rutabaga & Pork
This was another casualty of my Stuffed Veg Week concept. Did you know that if you buy a large rutabaga, then try to hollow it out, you will fail? Not just a little fail, a really big one. You’ll notice in the second photo just how far I got before I realized how insane this idea was… Needless to say, the final result (I’m told) was rich, buttery, and delicious. The Papa also said that “it’s different…” It makes me laugh when he says things like this because he’s always having to try new things, strange things, things that fail, and it’s tough for someone who grew up on graham crackers and milk.

For Vegan: Skip the pork, and enjoy the mashed veg standalone.

Do you know much about tamarind?I didn’t, just that I saw it in a drink once at the grocery store. I’ve seen it mentioned in other things here and there, but just didn’t know much since I have memory of it. So, when I saw this product in the store, and saw how simple it was, I thought, nah, I don’t need to call and give them corn free question run down. I’m going to be brave and try it. That was a really dumb idea, but, I now know what it tastes like, and it was really yummy, until it made me really sick. Glad I only ate a few small bites.
Here’s what I can say. If you can’t have soy, I feel like this would be a good soy “taste” replacement. You should also know there seemed to be hints of sour as well.
