Coconut Borscht


I've been putting this particular food experiment off for a long time, because cheese is my favorite food. Unfortunately, I also have a chronically stuffy nose. So, it being a new year and all, I'm experimenting with eliminating dairy from my diet for a few weeks, to see if it helps. I kind of hope it doesn't...

This coconut-ty borscht is another idea from my mentor Shelley in Boulder. It's beets & carrots from our CSA, onion, local garlic, and "whole" coconut milk pureed to magenta perfection. It's actually quite a delicious flavor combination. The beets were cooked on my rocket stove, but the rest on the regular stove because all I had for fuel was cardboard and I got sick of adding more fuel every 30 seconds.
