Gathering the Tribe Nut Roast
Nuts are some of the best food we humans can eat; they are packed with positive proteins and beneficial oils and are very tasty. This nearly effortless nut roastie is a great snack for movie night at home or party time anywhere and makes a savory appetizer for special meals. Here is what you need:
  • 10 ounces mixed nuts
  • 8 ounces of day-old bread
  • 1 medium-sized white onion, chopped
  • 1 1⁄2 cups veggie stock
  • Soy or tamari sauce
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
Preheat your oven to 350°F and sauté the onion in the butter until softened. Mix the nuts together with the bread in a food processor or stir vigorously until blended well, then transfer to a large bowl. Heat the stock to boiling and pour into the mixture in the bowl. Stir in the onions. Season as you see fit with salt, pepper, and sage. Pour in a tablespoon of the soy or tamari sauces to add zing to your roast and give one last stir. Spoon the roastie mix into a greased baking dish and bake for a half hour. Take note as your kitchen fills with a fantastic aroma. Heating the nuts brings out more of their natural oils and intensifies the flavor. Like herbs and flowers, nuts have magical properties which are mainly to increase love as well as feelings of conviviality and peace, thus the name of this dish. When you serve this roastie, you are quite literally “sharing the love.”

WeMoon Sweet Potato Cakes

Hearty and oh-so-healthy, these pancakes make for a marvelous full moon meal. Sweet potatoes are truly beneficial to women’s health since they contain estrogen; these tubers are good for you inside and out, as they also give your skin a nice boost. But their main magic for everyone is that they are a grounding tonic. Anytime you feel spacey or out-of-sorts or distracted, this food will serve you well, even if you just bake and eat a sweet potato. For this savory sweet, you will need:

  • 2 large semi-baked sweet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 2 large semi-baked russet potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 3eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • Chives, sage, and rosemary

Mix the potatoes and carrot in a large bowl. Beat the eggs, then add to the veggie mixture and mix thoroughly. Grind the rosemary and sage to a very fine powder in your mortar and pestle and add in a tablespoon of the herbs; salt and pepper to taste. Shape into round balls, enough for eight mooncakes. Warm the oil slowly until it is nice and hot. Place the balls in the oil and flatten into rounds with a spatula. Cook through until they are golden and beginning to crisp on both sides. Plate up and top with organic yogurt and chives. If you’re feeling decadent, dollop on sour cream, then enjoy with a circle of friends under the sheen of a bright and holy moon.

Savory Hedgewitch Pie

This recipe is old-school comfort food at its finest and is very filling and festive. Many of us are working mothers with very busy schedules, so this family favorite is good to double up on. Make one to serve piping hot out of the oven and freeze the second for a delicious reheated repast for after school and after work. You will need the following ingredients for one pie:

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup carrots, sliced
  • 2⁄3 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
  • 4 to 5 potatoes, boiled
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower or olive oil
  • 1⁄2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups sautéed ground beef, or soy protein for meat-free options
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
 
Mash the potatoes with unsalted organic butter, adding one splash of milk at a time until you have the desired consistency. Make sure you can get peaks so the pie will be impressively landscaped! Salt and pepper the potatoes to taste. Slowly heat the olive oil in sauté pan and cook the onions until they soften, then fold in and cook your meat or veggie protein. Lastly, add in the carrots, celery, mushrooms, and tomato and cook through. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add in your favorite herbs: parsley, sage, rosemary, or whatever your heart desires. Transfer to an oiled pie dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top. Lastly, spread the mashed potatoes on top, creating peaks and valleys. Dust a sprinkling of parsley and chives on top, then pop into the oven for fifteen minutes. Once the tater topping begins to turn a lovely golden brown on top, remove from the oven. Serve this hearty homemade savory pie in bowls alongside a crisp salad of homegrown greens and allow the coziness to melt all mundane matters away. This dish is good for any day of the week and impressive enough to bake for high holidays.
