Lentil soup is a quintessential recipe in a Greek household. It's simple to make and chockfull of nutrients. Lentils are a great source of iron, the most common mineral deficiency in the world. Lentils are also a great source of vegetarian protein and their high fiber content makes them super filling. I choose to cook with truRoots organic sprouted lentils because they are easier to digest and cook much faster! Here's my recipe. It's super simple, yet tasty and makes for great leftovers throughout the week especially if you're too busy to pack a lunch for work. Enjoy!
This is a very simple and quick recipe I tweaked from this one. It makes a great lunch or dinner and can be a whole meal for a vegan or vegetarian or a side dish for omnivores. Below is what you need and how to make it! It's super yummy and took me 20 minutes including the process of chopping and making the pasta! Fast, healthy, delicious-- I aim for this in each of my recipes.
This is one of my favorite recipes from a great restaurant in my area named Francesca's (Italian food, of course). For years I have been dying to create a healthier version of this recipe for my family and after some tweaking from last week, I came pretty close to perfecting it this time around! This recipe is great as a side dish or main dish depending on your dietary preferences. So cook up and enjoy!
The weather is getting colder and I have been wanting chili for some time now! I figured that "food friday" last night was the perfect time to make it since I had so much energy. Let me warn you, my chili is spicy!! If you don't like it hot, just take out some of the peppers below, but in my opinion, the spice makes the dish. Oh, and this recipe is for vegans as well, unless you want to put sour cream on top. Here's a hearty, vegetable-filled dinner that even the meat lovers in my family enjoyed.
This was a delicious recipe I threw together on a Sunday evening! I pretty much winged it, except for the dough, which I got from the awesome website Minimalist Baker. Anyways, I am going to repost that recipe here, along with my additions and the toppings I added. There will be some great photos as well. Please take the time and make this recipe! It was absolutely scrumptious and it only took an hour! Plus, it makes for great leftovers. First gluten-free pizza was a success!
In case you haven't noticed, I am a die-hard foodie.
