Vegan lentil meatballs?? 😱 Yes!
So much of the way we eat comes down to traditions and habits. I love traditions, especially when it comes to food. But I get true inspiration from mixing the old and the new, the typical and the unexpected. There is so much excitement and creativity in putting a twist on something familiar.
I’d like to thank whoever came up with the concept of cooked salads. Raw salads are fantastic, but in the dead of winter I crave something warm but healthy like roasted vegetables tossed in a tasty dressing with whole grains and beans and fresh raw herbs. Every bite is full of complex flavors, exquisite textures, and satisfaction. This Roasted Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Salad is my favorite at the moment. Favorite meaning I want to eat it every single day!! I think you’re going to enjoy it too 🙂
Hey love bug! Valentine’s Day is here 💗 This year I’m going to be my own Valentine. Shhhh, don’t tell my man 😉 Come tomorrow morning I’ll be making these delicious beet brownies for myself once again. Beets are the perfect Valentine’s Day food because they full of heart healthy phytonutrients and iron, and they’re red!! They give these moist and gooey brownies a gorgeous red hue without overwhelming their chocolatey richness.
Winter is here, and all I want is a warm bowl of hearty soup to add a little more warmth and coziness to the days. I’m most definitely a summer girl, but I do appreciate the experience of making a thick soup stuffed with veggies, starchy vegetables, and legumes on a cold day. It also doesn’t hurt that soups keep really well and are their tastiest on day 3. Last weekend I spent about 90 minutes in the kitchen making three fabulous vegan winter soups to share with you: Three Bean Chili, Green Gumbo, and Sweet Potato Red Lentil Bisque. They’re all so delicious I can’t decide which to eat at each meal time. As you’ll see, they’re all very easy to make and super nutritious.
