Cauliflower Chowder

Cauliflower Chowder

This Gluten Free Vegan Cauliflower Chowder is so good you won’t believe how healthy it is! Last week I published a Seafood Chowder recipe which was loaded with scallops, cod, shrimp, a base of vegetables cooked in bacon fat, and used crackers and cream to thicken the soup. This recipe […]

Homemade Vegetable Stock

Homemade Vegetable Stock

Homemade Vegetable Stock is insanely better than store bought and incredibly good for you. You could use scraps leftover from other recipes but I think it’s best with fresh vegetables. I have a nice vegetable winter soup recipe coming up that requires vegetable stock. I’ve tried so many different packaged […]

Eggplant Parm

Eggplant Parm

Fried planks of breaded Eggplant, fanned with melted mozzarella and topped with homemade tomato sauce. This is my favorite Eggplant Parm recipe. Fun fact – Eggplant is the original parm. Melanzane alla parmigiana or just parmigiana is what it’s called in Italy. Chicken and veal are American creations. From what […]

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower

Garlic Horseradish Mashed Cauliflower are the lighter and easier version of the classic Mashed Potatoes. Nevermind the health benefits as we’re using butter and cream here – but probably not as much as you’d use with Potatoes. I love Mashed Potatoes but I’m always trying to make a lighter version. […]

Vegetable Primavera

Vegetable Primavera

Vegetable Primavera is a farm fresh take on a pasta free classic. With all the meat on the grill this summer you’re going to need some fresh veggies to go with! Even better, just make this all on it’s own and forget the meat. Who doesn’t get carried away with […]

Acorn Squash Pizza

Acorn Squash and Smoked Gouda Pizza

Oh yeah – Acorn Squash and Smoked Gouda Pizza is totally a thing. Why limit yourself to one vegetable to spread atop your pizza dough? We all have our favorite pizza toppings, right? Pepperoni, Sausage, Pepper and Onion, Bacon and Pineapple. My all time fav is freshly canned San Marzano […]

Roast Beet Sandwich

Roast Beet Sandwich

Are you a Beet lover or a Beet hater? Some people say they taste like dirt, I say they taste like delicious earth candy. I like playing with words and I like thinking about interesting ways to prepare common foods. Hopefully someone looking for a Roast Beef Sandwich will come […]

Roast Cauliflower Tacos

Roast Cauliflower Tacos

If you’re in love with tacos as much as me, you might be looking for something a little lighter and easier to make on a regular basis. Roast Cauliflower is dead simple and can be seasoned in any creative way you’d like to rival even the best meat-filled tacos. 

Mexican Quinoa Salad

Mexican Quinoa Salad

In the time it takes you to watch a few cat videos on youtube, you could be eating this awesome summer salad! Once you’ve got your quinoa simmering in a covered pot, it only takes a few minutes to prep your veggies. If your ingredients are fresh, you really don’t […]

Kale and Green Bean Salad

Kale and Green Bean Salad

I’m still working my way in to this kale thing.  We’ve been hearing about this super food for the past few years.  As it turn out, kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.  Which, of course, is why it’s one of the worst tasting.  Let’s see […]
