Cauliflower Celery Root Puree

I have discovered a new culinary JOY! Having recently embarked on the Whole30 challenge and eliminated all dairy, potatoes, sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol and all artificial everything from my diet, I have been experimenting more in my kitchen than usual. Wanting to replace mashed potatoes with something else for a special date night dinner, I came across a recipe for cauliflower puree and gave it a go. This recipe is so easy and versatile; you can add any spices to send it in whatever culinary direction you desire. I even added celery root, since I usually add it to my mashed potatoes, and like it even better this way. I have experimented with so many flavors and spices and it is always a success. Try adding to the base recipe below.

roasted garlic and thyme, curry and coconut milk, sour cream and chives,pesto, or come up with your own favorite combination. What I really like about this is that it has the texture of mashed potatoes without the heaviness. It is really light and creamy and satisfies any cravings for mashed potatoes that I may have. Be well and enjoy!

1T coconut, macadamia, avocado, olive OR hazelnut oil

Meet Pachamamma Coffee Cooperative

By Lauren Taber, Pachamama Coffee Cooperative

Pachamama Coffee Cooperative started in 2001 with a few simple questions in mind: what would it look like to take Fair Trade a step further? How can coffee farmers be in direct relationship with end consumers in the United States?

We found that the answer was even simpler: cooperative ownership. Pachamama Coffee has been 100% farmer-owned since day one, and is currently owned by 140,000 small scale family farmers across the coffee producing regions of the world.
