Dinner

 

Fall-ish Dinosaur Kale Salad

This salad is a immunity boosting power house. With cruciferous veggies, fiber-rich fruits, and warming spices. Perfect for fall, and for building your immunity all year round. Quite the delicious way to heal and prevent disease!

Sweet Potato and Spinach Empanadas

These are my family's favorite Empanadas.  They are so perfect for a make-ahead-and-heat-up dinner, and a great recipe to double for entertaining friends (and friends with kiddos). They are portable, package-able, freezable, and soooooooo enjoyable!! 

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

This easy winter soup is nutrient rich - add jalapenos for spice, garlic for flavor, and chili-roasted pumpkin seeds for plant protein.  (Did you know that pumpkin seeds have more protein per pound than lentils, beans, or nuts? It's true!)

Lemony Zucchini Ribbons

This meal is so fast and easy, it is a weeknight staple. When I entertain, I will serve this alongside salmon or chicken grilled with lemon and oregano.  This can be enjoyed along side any protein of your choice! 

Health + Discovery Vegetarian Chili

THIS. Is the best veggie chili you will ever eat.  It is so flavorful and hearty, that you will not even realize that the ground beef/turkey you are used to in your chili-meal has actually been replaced by red lentils!! Super sneaky :).

Spinach and Potato Soup

This soup combines all 3 ways to avoid the take-out trap, so having this recipe in your back pocket will basically make you invincible :). There is nothing more comforting than filling your home with yummy smells and then having leftovers for the week.

Taste of Spain

This recipe for Cauliflower Bravas, Pork Chops with peach and scallion relish, and Basic Green Beans is the new addition to my weekly menu, it captures all the flavors of summer and the tastes of Spain that my family loved. And some pretty epic Sangria.

Gingery Salmon

This has been a staple in my home for almost 10 years now! My kids have all grown up eating it, expanding the repertoire of flavors that they enjoy and fueling their bodies with nutrient rich foods that they now crave.

Brussels Sprout Hash

This hash is so hearty and satisfying! With a nourishing miso-apple-cider-vinegar dressing it is perfect for your holiday table, or any day of the week :).  Served alongside roasted sweet potatoes, this vegan and paleo friendly meal is incredible!

Meatball Soup

The experience of eating this soup is nourishing in more ways than just physical. It makes me feel whole, well, and at home.  It connects me to my family and brings me to a place of thankfulness as I remember those I love!
