Chocolate coconut blueberries

Inspired by cheerjess's sister - blueberies coated in chocolate ad rolled in coconut before freezing.

This was very simple!

1. Freeze some blueberries, about 1 + cup in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
2. Melt about 1/3 cup chocolate chips on low until all melted. Make sure not to burn the chocolate.
3. dip the frozen blueberries in the melted chocolate. You might only be able to coat one side and that will be enough for flavor.
4. Roll in shredded coconut.
5. Place back on the cookie sheet and refreeze.
6. Serve about 1 hour later.

Maple Chard Salad

Made for vegan_cookoff

2 cups chopped chard
2 Tbl. shredded carrots
2 Tbl. toasted slivered almonds
1/2 Cup fresh blueberries

3 Tbl. Maple Syrup
1 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar
1/8 tsp. guar gum (thickener)
pinch cayanne
1/8 tsp. paprika

This is pretty simple, but it's so fantastic with the sweet of the berries and maple syrup and the bitter of the chard. The toastiness of the almonds brings this really nice round flavor to it all.

1/2 block firm tofu
1/4 cup agave
1/4 cup chopped apples
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup blue berries
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
large dashes of: clove, nutmeg and ginger

1. Shred tofu and start to saute with some olive oil an 1/4 cup agave
2. Add chopped apples and spices, saute more.
3. Add apple sauce and saute until sticky. Add sliced almonds.
4. Place blueberries on top of scramble and let cook for about two minutes.
5. Mix together and serve with sprinkled almonds.

This is a lot like oatmeal, but has a different texture. Next time I will add more apples and roast them. This meal was very hearty!
