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…

October 24, 2009

I love steamed Kale! So delicious! It is very easy to wash the kale and then just scrape if off the stems, rip it into bite size pieces and steam it.

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.

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…

Fruit & nuts for breakfast??

October 1, 2009

I eat fruit and nuts for breakfast every day during the week and I switch it up a little on the weekends. Today I’m having strawberries, pineapple, a banana, and some almonds. I usually buy fruit from the cafeteria at work, which gets a little pricey, but they almost always have strawberries, and sometimes blueberries, and on those days I know it’s worth it. I fill one of those containers,…

Pumpkin and Butternut Squash Soup

September 29, 2009

We got a butternut squash and cooking pumpkin from our farm pickup this week so I decided to make soup out of it. I peeled and cubed both the pumpkin and the squash. I then cut two onions and cooked them in a large pot with about a half an inch of water. We usually don’t use any oil and cook onions and things in water instead. Once the onions…
