Super Food Pesto!

July 9, 2010

This pesto recipe was so good and made from healthy ingredients that it is forcing me out of my blog retirement. I usually get so much basil from my weekly farm share I don’t know what to do with it. The recipe was so easy! We had it for dinner one night over pasta and veggies and then ate it as a dip with baby carrots. We all had it…

Homemade Sushi Dinner!

January 6, 2010

I got this great little sushi kit at the Basil Bandwagon last night. Anthony rolled up these fabulous rolls and Evan inhaled them!  This was a last minute thing and look how colorful it turned out!  We had beat & avocado roll, avocado & mango roll, beat & sweat potato roll and a sweet potato & avocado roll. Yum! Next time we will make it healthier and get the kit…

Leigh Ann’s Tofu with Peanut-Ginger Sauce

November 23, 2009

This was delish! Really, it was sooo good. I just modified it a little. I doubled the recipe, but instead of doubling the tofu, I added in some steamed broccoli instead. Thanks Leigh Ann for the recipe!! http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/tofu-with-peanut-ginger-sauce-1270726

Red Cabbage

November 9, 2009

I am not sure how this is going to taste, but look at the colors! Steamed red cabbage, spinach, black beans and corn salsa. Not very kid friendly, but maybe if you stick it in soft taco?

Stewed Greens

October 25, 2009

Sometimes I have such a backlog of greens from the farm I just put a whole bunch in a pot with a can of diced tomatoes, some corn for sweetness and a little Italian seasoning. It comes out so good! Even Ev commented on how good it smelled while I was cooking it tonight. Let’s see if he actually eats some for dinner tomorrow. This batch has kale, spinach and…

Vegan Eggplant Rollatini

October 24, 2009

The vegan eggplant rollatini is by far my favorite recipe. It is so good, and the cashew ricotta is so creamy it really makes the dish! Also, the key to cooking this eggplant healthily is baking it so you don’t have to use tons of oil to make it soft. It’s a little work so I usually don’t do it on a weeknight, but if I do make it I…

Veggie Chili

October 21, 2009

Veggie Chili is a good stand by to make as the days get chillier. We usually put it over a bed of spinach or some other greens. Sometimes it is hard to get the kids to eat chili so I sometimes make a quesadilla or tacos out of it for them.

Pumpkin Soup

October 21, 2009

Ev begged me for some pumpkin soup the other day. We had just came back from pumpkin picking so I just used one of the medium sized pumpkins we got. I cut up the pumpkin, cubed it and cut the skin off. I then boiled it with one onion in and a box of veggie broth until soft. I added some pepper, cumin and cinnamon and then blended it all…

Carrots with the greens still on

October 21, 2009

For some reason my kids love steamed carrots if the green part is still left on. It’s a total novelty for them. We got these carrots from our CSA farm and they were so tasty.  The other shot is of the rest of the dinner, a hodge podge of other veggies and tacos.
