Servings: 4
Preparation Time:  15 minutes

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees ºF. Separate the onion slices into rings, saving the smaller, internal rounds for another use.

Place the coconut cream concentrate, eggs, water, salt, and smoked paprika in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the batter in a shallow dish. Spread the flaked coconut in another shallow dish.

Oil a cookie sheet with coconut oil. Dip each onion ring into the coconut butter mixture to lightly coat, and then into the flaked coconut. Place in a single layer on the cookie sheet. When all of the onion rings are coated, bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the coconut is lightly browned. Sprinkle on additional salt, if desired. Serve hot.

Servings: 6
Preparation Time:  25-30 minutes

Crust:

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped (1/2 inch)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 coconut cream concentrate
  • 12 cups your favorite veggie (I have used sweet potato, asparagus, zucchini, corn, all have been delicious…experiment and share how it turned out!)
  • 2 small potatoes, cubed 1/2 inch
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or as needed to thicken)

Dough:

Mix almond and coconut flour with the salt, then slowly fold in softened butter until it crumbles.  Stir in water by the tablespoon and mix dough thoroughly by hand.  Once dough is mixed, divide in half and roll into balls.  Cover or wrap balls and put in fridge.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees ºF.
Saute onions in coconut oil until they become translucent.  Heat vegetable broth in a medium pot and bring to a boil.  Once boiling add cumin and lower head to medium.  Add coconut cream concentrate.  Add vegetables to mixture and let simmer 15 minutes stirring frequently.

While mixture is simmering take 1/2 the dough and push down into the dish fairly thin and up the sides covering the dish.  Roll out remaining dough to cover top and set aside.  Fill the dish with rolled out dough making sure to fill any cracks.

Once mixture has simmered and dough is rolled out add coconut flour to mixture to thicken the liquid.  Pour mixture into dish.  Take rolled top and lay over dish.  If some cracks or falls apart that’s ok just press it back together and fill in cracks.  Press edges together.  Place in oven for 20-30 minutes or until dough is golden brown around edges.

Notes:

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

  • If you want to make this recipe completely vegan just substitute earth balance for butter.  Also coconut oil may work, but I haven’t tried it yet.
  • I use frozen broccoli florets and frozen peas to save time and it turns out great.
