Resistant Starch Potatoes, Sour Cream with Coconut Milk

Potatoes with coconut milk sour cream

YES – potatoes are back in favor… firm not soft, that is. The firm potato gets a thumbs up from many health care practitioners. The overcooked potato gets a thumbs down. And you won’t believe this sour cream is coconut milk! — the sour and herbs trump the coconut flavor!

Chef for silence, yoga, meditation retreat

Food, menu, served at 4 day retreat

Here is a photo gallery of the food I made for a 4-day silent retreat. Scroll down to read the recipe cards for each dish, see my shadow, see the sunset, and read about the retreat.
