Carrot and White Bean Soup
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with sides with coconut oil so veggies don’t stick. Melt 2 tablespoons of ghee and toss the onion, garlic and carrots until evenly coated. Place on the cookie sheet and lightly drizzle with one tablespoon of ghee. Toss veggies till evenly coated and season with salt and pepper. (You will add the leek halfway through the roasting). Roast veggies till tender and golden, about 35 minutes. (Roasting time depends on the size of your veggies.)
  2. Transfer vegetables to a blender or food processor including all the brown bits from the baking sheet and puree until smooth, slowly adding stock as needed for a smooth puree. The key word is smooth.
  3. Transfer the puree to the soup pot and stir in the stock, beans and half of the dill. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook till all the flavors are blended. Add the sour cream and last tablespoon of ghee. Season to taste with unrefined salt and cracked pepper. Garnish with the remaining dill.
Recipe Notes

Serves four and is perfect with P & J sandwiches. Use good whole grain crusty bread and your favorite nut butter and jam.

Sriracha Ghee-Injected Chicken
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Remove any giblets that are stuffed inside the chicken cavity. Wash and dry the chicken, inside and out. Sprinkle the inside with Sriracha powder and salt.
  3. Melt the ghee in a clean, narrow jar in the microwave. Using a food injector*, pull the melted ghee into the tube with the plunger. Insert it under the chicken skin at the breasts and thighs. Insert in ONE spot and move the injector around to spread the ghee under the skin without puncturing more holes. Pull the injector out and insert in the other breast. Repeat with the thigh area.
  4. Baste the outside of the chicken with a little ghee and sprinkle with paprika and chives.
  5. Reduce oven temp to 375F and bake chicken for 20 minutes. Every 15 minutes baste the chicken with pan drippings till it has reached an internal temperature of 165F** at the thickest part of the bird.
  6. Remove from oven and allow chicken to rest for 15 mins before serving.
Recipe Notes

* Find an injector at grocery stores or amazon.com

** A good rule of thumb is to allow 20 minutes per pound as a guide for roasting a chicken.

Freshly Roasted Tomato Soup
Instructions
  1. To roast the tomatoes:
  2. Preheat the oven to 400F. Spread the tomatoes on a baking sheet. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of melted ghee, maple syrup and BBQ mesquite seasoning and blend together. Pour mixture over the tomatoes – cut sides facing up. Season with salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste and roast in the oven at 400F for about 45 minutes.
  3. In a large stock pot, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until tender – about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the canned tomatoes, fresh basil and broth. Stir in the oven roasted tomatoes and simmer over medium-low heat for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and in the stockpot, puree the mixture with an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a food processor or blender to blend. Be careful because the soup is very hot. Remember to start blending at a slow speed and increase gradually. The soup should be smooth with some tomato chunks. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You can prepare the soup to this point and refrigerate. When ready to serve, bring to a slow simmer over medium heat. Before serving, stir in 1 tablespoon of ghee. YUM!
  5. Serves 4 generously and super delish with grilled cheese sandwich made with Black Garlic Ghee.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Place the apples in a big bowl. In a measuring cup, whisk together the maple syrup (or sugar) and water. Add the lemon juice, vanilla extract, starch, cinnamon, clove, and salt. Pour over apples and mix well. Place apples into a 9” square baking dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  3. In a mixing bowl, blend the oats, almond meal, pecans, almonds, coconut sugar, rest of cinnamon and salt. Melt the Maple Cinnamon Ghee and butter together, and stir in the coconut milk. Add this to the dry mix and stir until the mixture is incorporated and moistened throughout.
