add above ingredients to the blender and then add:
1 small can tomato paste
1 tsp allspice
1/2 onion
1 TB vinegar
1 TB molasses
splash of water
1 TB brown rice syrup

meanwhile, in a large pot:
1/2 onion chopped and sauteed
3 cloves garlic chopped and sauteed
then add:
can of beans of choice (we used dark red kidney)
2 TB mustard
2 TB molasses
1 TB cane sugar
(stir in the ingredients from the blender as well as about a cup of water. either cook stovetop for 30 minutes or in the oven @ 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes)
potato salad:
3 potatoes (cubed)
1/2 head of cauliflower (chopped into small pieces)
1 small celeriac root (cubed)

Boil a huge pot of water and add the potatoes, cauliflower, and celeriac root until just soft enough to pierce with a knife.  Once they are done cooking, place in a large bowl and mix in:

1/4 cup raw cashews blended with splash of olive oil/splash of water
onion powder
garlic powder
celery salt
lemon juice
red wine vinegar
apple cider vinegar
