  • 1/2 pound organic spinach, stemmed
  • A half-pound yam, peeled and cut into a 1/2 to 3/4-inch dice
  • 1 1/2 cups water or sodium-free vegetable stock

Methods to prepare:

    1. Bring the yams to a boil in a large pot, about 1 1/2 cups of water or stock. Reduce heat to a boiler and cook the yams for about 10 minutes.

    3. Allow the mixture to cool and purée in a food processor or blender.

3. Creamy Provencal Chicken

Ingredients:

Methods to prepare:

    1. Mix equal sections of dried savory, rosemary, thyme, oregano, garlic, marjoram and fennel. You can also add one of your favorite plants, or if you want to remove one.
    2. Cut the chicken breast into 1/2 inch thick parts lengthwise using a large knife. Slicing the chicken thinly allows the pieces to cook quicker and more consistently.
    3. In a small frypan, heat oil over low heat for around 2 minutes. Attach the chicken and the spices and cook for around 4-5 minutes per side or until the chicken is lightly browned and the juice is clear.
    4. Allow the chicken to chill for a few minutes. Add the cheese to the food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes.
    5. Attach 1/4 cup of the broth and the purée until light and fluffy. Keep applying the broth, one tablespoon at a time, until you have the perfect consistency. Serve individually or with thin pasta, quinoa or beans.
