January 20, 2014

  As if Black Bean soup isn’t already good enough, I added Kale and Mushrooms to push it over the top!! I started with a Black Bean soup recipe from allrecipes.com (link), and changed it up a bit.  What I ended up with is below, and it’s been a huge hit with our friends and families so far!  It’s a hearty soup that covers 4 of the 6 GBOMBS (Greens, Beans, Onions,…

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…

No Guilt Ice Cream!

January 27, 2010

Take a look at the “ice cream” Anthony made last week. Okay, it’s not really ice cream, but it is sooo good!

Veggie Chili

Veggie sandwich with chili

September 24, 2009

This sandwich is a quick, easy healthy choice. It’s on a pita with a layer of hummus, crumbled up Sunshine veggie burger, avocado, fresh spinach and salsa. The Sunshine burgers are the best because they are made from rice, seeds and veggies and have no soy fillers. I get them at the Basil Bandwagon in Flemington. On the side is some leftover chili I found in the fridge. This is…
