Roasted Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup with Crispy Shallots

This soup is one of my favorites because it’s so simple, but bursting with flavor. The roasted veggies add a nice nutty flavor and the crispy shallots add a pop of sweetness in every bite. Serve this with crusty bread for dipping and a big side salad drizzled with oil and vinegar. You can easily […]

Chicken and Veggie Stew (Dairy-Free)

I often have several clients requesting meals that are gluten-free and dairy-free. Making meals and snacks that are gluten-free can be pretty simple these days since there are so many gluten-free products available, but making meals dairy-free is a little trickier (especially if you want them to taste good). Soaking raw cashews and blending them […]

Slow Cooker 3-Bean Chili

Soup season is here and chili is one of my absolute favorite make-ahead meals. This version uses lean beef, lots of beans, loads of smoky spices and a full can of pumpkin (trust me) which adds great flavor and richness. I served mine with a dollop of full-fat plain Greek yogurt and a small sprinkle […]

Simple Tomato Basil Soup

Soup is good for the body and the soul on cold wintery snow days when all you crave is comfort food. Canned tomatoes are one of my absolute favorite items to keep stocked in my pantry (especially for soups and stews) because they are super healthy and also convenient when making quick meals. This tomato […]

Beef and Noodle Soup

Anyone else feeling like they need a light meal? While the holidays aren’t quite over, today I was craving some veggies (something to balance out the cheese and desserts…). We had some leftover prime rib in the fridge and I knew that would add wonderful flavor to soup (any beef will do – pot roast, […]

Roasted Root Veggie and Apple Soup with Chicken Sausage

Oh warmth, how I need you. Soups are just what the doctor ordered with all this snowy weather. This soup is so tasty and celebrates all kinds of fall flavors. The combination of sweet, caramelized roasted root veggies, pan-fried chicken sausage and apple cider broth is a perfect balance of sweet and salty. Serve this […]

Butternut Squash Curry

I love curries – especially ones that are chock-full of veggies. This dish is perfect to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for lunch because it will keep you full until dinner time. And it’s a great meal to make for any of your vegan friends or those with food allergies since […]

Italian Sausage, Kale and Tortellini Soup

Once I feel a chill in the air, I immediately crave soups. They are so comforting in the fall and winter months and I love that there are so many different kinds to enjoy. They are an easy way to get your veggies too! This soup in particular packs huge flavor from the sausage and […]

Vegetable and Homemade Chicken Wonton Soup

By January, I feel like I’m constantly craving warmth. If I’m not working, I’m at home in my sweatpants, robe and slippers and hiding under warm blankets (time for a sunny vacation it seems…). In the mean time, warming foods like this yummy chicken soup are good for the soul. This recipe is a fun […]
