Recipe #70: Tuscan White Bean, Kale & Farro Stew

Meal in a bowl, that’s what this was. It’s one of those soups/stews that is an entire meal because it has grains, protein and tons of veggies. It was nice comfort food and the recipe yields a huge pot of stew so it’s perfect for second helpings or leftovers. I’m so happy with how this…

Recipe #67: Zesty Black Bean & Corn Salad in Lettuce Cups

I’m a fan of nice bean salad. It needs to have lots of bright flavours and textures or else it can be a little boring. There was nothing boring about this salad. It was super fresh with the cilantro and zippy with the lime juice. It also had lots of texture from the radish and…

This kind of dish – bowl of food with many different things – is right up my alley. I just love having a variety of tastes and textures that work well on their own as well as together. I am also a big fan of mexican food so I knew this would be a good…

Recipe #21: Hearty Lentil Minestrone

I know I’ve mentioned that with the cold weather coming, I’m excited to be having more soups and stews. They are just so great because they warm you up nicely and it almost makes you forget how cold it it outside. Although it’s not quite winter yet, it’s definitely getting chilly here. I try to…
