sunday breakfast

scrambled eggs made with ghee and goat cheese.
whole wheat toast with walnuts, spread with ghee.
sweet potato, caramelized torpedo onion and sun-dried tomato hash made with ghee.

roasted cauliflower + sweet potatoes

This was born as a last minute side dish for dinner the other night...Impromptu creations are the best!

1 head cauliflower
2 sweet potatoes (you could also use yams, regular potatoes of any variety or carrots)
Ancient Organics Ghee (enough to coat veggies, 4-5 tbsp)
Handful of fresh herbs (ie parsley, thyme, basil, oregano) chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Chop the sweet potatoes into small (around 1") cubes
Break apart the head of cauliflower so that florettes are relatively small (about the size of the potatoe chunks so it all cooks evenly)
Put the veggies on a large baking sheet, drizzle ghee on top and then toss to coat. Stir in fresh herbs, salt and pepper to your taste then place in the oven and roast, stirring occasionally until cauliflower is browned and potatoes are cooked through (20-30 minutes). Remove and enjoy!
Especially good sprinkled with a little parmesan...
Can be served alongside meat or fish or eaten as a component of a vegetarian plate.
