Hearty Winter Squash Soup

image

This is my favorite winter squash soup recipe ever. Over the course of this winter, I’ve made it about 20 times and never get sick of it. I’m usually not very fond of squash soup, they are typically too sweet for my palate. This soup is more savory, with just a hint of sweet, and the added veggies make it more filling.

Easy Coconut Cumin Lentils

So I know brown lentils aren’t the most beautiful food in the world, but they are delicious and healthy and that’s all that matters. I was cleaning out my cupboards and found an open bag of lentils and a can of coconut milk. I decided to throw them together with a few other ingredients, and this recipe resulted. It’s really freaking good and very easy to make! Also seen in the picture is some kale sauteed with tempeh and red onion, which pairs pretty well with the lentils.

Island Delight Smoothie

I know summer is almost over, but right now in Oregon, it only just started. We just had our first week of warm weather and this smoothie really hit the spot. I recently got braces (for the 2nd time, uggh!) and it hurts to eat anything, so I’ve been making a ton of smoothies. This is by far the best one I have come up with.

Strawberry Tempeh Salad Sandwich (or wrap)

So I have been having somewhat of a dry spell in the kitchen lately…hence the lack of recipe posts. But yesterday, I had an epiphany. The strawberries in my fridge, along with the half eaten block of tempeh were calling out to me. I gave myself a pat on the back for this concoction. It’s really freaking good.

Hawaiian ‘Chicken’ Salad Burrito

I have really been neglecting my blog lately, and I have no legitimate excuse….except that I’m lazy.

But I did make this recipe 2 times last week! Its pretty tasty…I’ll probably make it again 2 times this week because I’m not creative enough to think of any new recipes lately. Enjoy!

Unbelievably Simple and Amazing Raw Pesto Spread

This pesto spread whips up in less than five minutes, and will blow your mind. It’s so easy to make, and very versatile. Eat it by itself with some crackers or french bread. Or, better yet, I mixed it with some non-dairy cream cheese, and it was literally so good I ate myself into a food coma.

Stuffed Acorn Squash


Two lonely acorn squash have been sitting in my fridge since well before Christmas. I have been doing a pretty good job at ignoring their existence until today when I opened the fridge and one rolled out and landed on my foot. It was pretty much begging to get eaten, so I threw it in the oven. Since it was the perfect size and shape for stuffing, I decided that would be the fate of this squash; I got some inspiration from this recipe. The stuffing was basically a combination of things in my fridge that I wanted to get rid of.

Healthy Vegetarian Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

THIS IS OFFICIALLY THE HEALTHIEST PAD THAI RECIPE EVER!!!! Not only does replacing the traditional rice noodles with spaghetti squash and shredded cabbage omit all those unnecessary carbs, but it adds virtually all the vitamins and minerals, not to mention a good dose of dietary fiber. This seriously tastes just like pad thai! Especially since spaghetti squash has a similar texture to rice noodles. I’m obsessed with spaghetti squash, typically eating it about twice a week. I never thought to make pad thai with it until my good friend Katie posted this recipe. Since I had pretty much everything to make pad thai in my fridge and pantry, I modified some of her ingredients (I didn’t have mushrooms or coconut milk) and this is what I came up with…
