Don’t eat the animals (or their by-products!) This includes eggs & dairy, which can show up in places that you might be surprised by. Veganism has amazing health benefits and you get the added bonus of making the world a better place. Neat!
It’s St. Patrick’s day! And while I’m not the least bit Irish, I do like to celebrate with an Irish coffee and Shepherd’s Pie. In this recipe, I swap out the ground beef for lentils (a little trick you can do in so many recipes). The secret here is the cinnamon. I know! It sounds crazy, but trust me, it really makes the dish
On Sunday, I decided to make a Moroccan Stew in my crockpot. It was super easy & the house smelled great all day! Tonight, I cooked up a few greens & topped them with the reheated stew — quick, tasty, healthy dinner! I’m excited to use the stew throughout the week. I could serve it with grilled vegetables, top it with a fried egg, mix it in with rice , or just have it as a quick side.
This is one of my favorite ways to make butternut squash. It’s a warm salad. It is from Wegmans, our great local supermarket. Their recipes call for using their brands of all of the ingredients. You don’t need to get anything prepackaged. The basting oil can be olive oil or grapeseed, with garlic added.
This is a great replacement for the traditional Thanksgiving casserole made with cream of mushroom soup. It is a bit more work but well worth it!
My take on one of my favorite Indian dishes, Aloo Gobi. I cooked up Potatoes and Cauliflower with spices, diced tomatoes, onions & peas. It was super filling & very flavorful!
I always find myself grabbing an avocado or two when I see them grocery shopping. I look forward to them, and one day I find them ripe. More times than not, I’ll make some guacamole! With great guacomole, comes great tex-mex vegetables. You can fill these in a burrito, a taco, but better yet… a fajita salad!
This is one of my favorite dishes to make with whatever veggies I have around the house. It’s really easy to make, and you can season it to your taste!
