Yerba Mate Finger Lime Cocktail

Yerba Mate Finger Lime Cocktail

This is more than a superfood cocktail, it has native roots that were used medicinally and for food benefits. Since I have been traveling in Australia, going to farmers markets and trying new foods, I stumbled across these guys!  From Kangaroo (all of it is wild and grass fed) to amazing fruits and now this, the Finger Lime.

Superfood "Chili"

I am so excited to share this hearty recipe with you because it turned out amazing. We ended up eating the leftovers for dinner the next day and now looking back I should have poached an egg on top! This recipe is very nutrient filled, with robust flavors it is very satisfying for those cold winter days, I can't wait to make it on my next snow trip! I also made GF cornbread, GMO free of course, with lots of butter, recipe is still in the works, a little dry. 

Takes about 45 minutes total

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 strips bacon

  • 1/2 white onion

  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef

  • 1 small zucchini, cubes

  • 8-10 crimini mushrooms

  • 1 jalepeno, thinly chopped

  • 1 large can organic stewed tomatoes

  • 2 cups bone broth

  • 1 can organic white Tuscan beans

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • Pepper and Himaylean salt to taste

  • 1 tsp Root and Bones Chaga (use code TVW for discount)

  • Raw cheddar cheese (shredded to top)

  • Chives, cilantro or micrograms to top

METHOD:

Cook bacon in the pot you will make your soup in. Cook bacon until crispy, remove to a plate. In oil from bacon, sauté onions until translucent 2-3 minutes. Add ground beef and spices and cook until browned. Add mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes,  jalapeños, broth, and cook for about 20-25 minutes at med- low temperature.

Add beans (I do not like to cook precooked beans too long or they get mushy) and then if you are using superfood see note below.

**Add Four Sigmatic mushroom powder about 5 minutes before serving, make sure heat remains at low temperature so you do not cook out the nutrients! USE CODE TVW2017 for a discount.

Top with greens, cheese, a dollop of Greek yogurt or nothing at all.
