Bok Choy Kale and Cannelini Puree

February 26th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Pureed Foods

BeforeContinuation of my pureed foods series.

One of the first things I made was loads of GREEN veggies with lots of flavor.  Green veggies is just tons and tons of real nutrition.  They have Vitamins and Minerals that everyone needs whether sick or not.  My son calls them ‘happy foods’.

This right here is pretty darn tasty actually.   Here’s what you need and how to do it.  This recipe was inspired by The Great Kale Cookoff.

Ingredients:

  • 1 average sized Bok Choy – about 7 or 8 leaves
  • About 6 or 7 pieces of Kale
  • Red Onion marinated in red vinegar
  • A little bit of diced tomato (fresh)
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • Spice – whatever you desire. Nutmeg, Ginger, Basil, Parsley .. it’s all good
  • 1`can Cannelini Beans (white kidney beans) – Drained and Rinsed

Wash your veggies.  Cut the ribs off of your kale and cut the leaves and ribs off of your bok choy.  Tear them up in to smaller pieces so they cook a little more evenly.  Put some Grapeseed oil in a pan along with your veggies, diced garlic, sliced and marinated onion and a handful of fresh dices tomato.  Add a little spice.  Nutmeg and/or Ginger are both good with this.  Basil, Parsley, whatever you like should be good.  You only need a little bit.  Maybe 1/4 teaspooon of it.  You’ll also need to add no more than 1/4 cup of water.  Cook it down until it is wilted evenly and soft.

Rinse and Drain your beans.  If you don’t the mixture will be too runny.  You can heat them up if you want so you know what the consistency will be if you heat the food up at a later time.

Put your beans and bok choy mix along with a heaping spoonful of Coconut Oil in a food processor and let ‘er go until is as smooth as you can get it.

If the food is too runny, I’ve crushed chewable vitamin C to thicken it.  Only takes one or two.  If its like water though you will need to add more veggies.  LOTS more.

If it is too dry try adding a little water or an apple.  A tablespoon at a time until you get it to where you want it.  The mixture will be like a paste when refrigerated, but becomes moist when you heat it for about 20 seconds.  I’ve even added a little probiotics to it before to help out the person eating it all.  Your end result should look like this and boy oh boy does it make a lot!

    Hi, I’m at my wits end because my brother who is 90 years old refuses to eat any more pureed foods. He has dementia too. I just got a text message from his caretaker that he will no longer eat, he’s tired of pureed foods. However, I think he is tired because it tastes the same. All the veggies and protein are mixed and pureed. I think he needs more variety of flavors, individual tastes. I will look for more recipes. I like your thickening foods, using apple or vitamin c. Thanks for the tips.
