Blue Corn Posole

Yield: 1 quart

1 1/2 oz. coconut oil
1/8 quart diced yellow onions
1/8 cup garlic and oil
1 tablespoon oregano leaf
1/2 tablespoon sea salt
1/3 gallon of hot water
1 pint blue corn
1/4 tablespoon Herbamare*

In a pot, sauté coconut oil, onions, garlic, oregano, and sea salt on low heat until the onions sweat. Add blue corn. Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium simmer. Stir periodically until the posole is tender, approximately 30 minutes. Water may be added if simmering is too long and is boiling away. Drain off excess water in a colander. Re-season again for correcting flavoring. Let cool, then refrigerate.

Italian Zucchini

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red onion
1/4 cup oregano
1 teaspoon garlic in oil
pinch of Herbamare*
1 pint chopped zucchini

In a hot braising pan, heat oil. Stir in onions, garlic, and oregano. Then sauté the veggies for 3 minutes. Add in zucchini and Herbamare and simmer to sweat the zucchini. Pull off and cool immediately. Do not overcook the veggies. Allow to cool and refrigerate.
