instant pot steaks + roasted veg bowl

preheat instant pot on sauté function. add 1 T ghee + 2 grass fed organic (local if possible!) steaks and season with sea salt, black pepper, hing spice & any other spices you like! sear 2 min on each side, then turn pot off and add 1 c water or bone broth + 1 T acv.

put the lid on and set to pressure cook on high for 3-5 minutes (depending on thickness of meat and how rare you like it). release steam before opening. easiest way to cook steak if you don’t have a grill. and cleanest! 

served up in a bowl with roasted curried butternut, beets, homegrown sprouts, fresh herbs, fermented veg, + a whole lotta sumac & lemon juice to top. also drizzled a bit of vegan homemade ranch dressing.

sweet potato toasts with herbed coconut yogurt, smoked salmon, & roasted shiitake

whoa! these are delicious!

how to:
grab a large sweet potato & slice into 1/2” rounds. lay out on a baking sheet and add washed shiitake mushrooms to the sheet as well. drizzle everything in evo avocado oil & sprinkle with s + p. roast @400F for 20ish minutes until cooked through and golden.

in a bowl, combine 1 c yogurt of choice (i used pure young thai coconut yogurt), chopped dill + chives + capers, splash of lemon juice, 1/4 t hing, & s + p.

spread yogurt onto roasted sweet potatoes and top with a slice of wild caught, sugar free smoked salmon, roasted mushrooms, spirulina crunchies, fresh herbs, & a sprinkle of sea salt + black pepper.

i made something magic, and i’m gonna start throwing them out for christmas gifts!

for instant happiness:
spray this on your clothes, on your pillow, in your face, on your couch, in your hair!

for the spray:
1 t sea salt
1/2 of a vanilla bean pod (this makes it amazing & so fresh!! but you could also use 1/2 t vanilla extract)
16 drops wild orange pure essential oil
-add all to a 2oz glass spray bottle and shake well before each use.

for a roller bottle:
1 ounce organic fractionated coconut oil
6 drops wild orange EO
