Raw Banana Cacao Chia Pudding
These types of dishes are so easily customizable, they’re a lot like  having oatmeal for breakfast; you can make it with any ingredients that  you like. For this one in particular, I choose to use a perfectly ripe  banana for a little natural sweetness, some tart goji berries, and raw  cacao powder to accompany the gooey chia seeds.

Fennel and Yellow Split Pea Soupserves 104 1/2 cups dried yellow split peas, rinsed4 tbsp butter2 bulbs fennel, diced2 onion, diced8 stalks celery, diced12 small carrots, diced4 cloves garlic salt and pepper1 tsp turmeric14 cups vegetable stock2 cups water4 medium potatoes, peeled and dicedDirections:Place peas in a ginormous pot where they take up from 1/4 to under 1/2 of the room, then fill up to the 3/4 line with water and a sprinkle of salt.  Bring to a boil, lower the heat slightly to prevent boiling over, and let cook for 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally, being aware that the peas will significantly expand.  When finished, drain, rinse, and set aside.

In any even more gigantoid pot, melt butter over medium-low heat.  Cook fennel, onion, celery, and carrots with garlic and salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

Add the turmeric, stock, water, potatoes, and peas; mix well.  Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered, for 2 hours.

Once cooled (this will take hours), use a food processor to puree in batches until smooth.
