Roasted Broccoli and Chickpea Tacos with Smashed Avocado and Chipotle Crema

Tacos are one of my favorite go-to dinners (I’m sure most of you would agree). But a meatless taco? That might sound strange, but just trust me with these. The roasted broccoli and chickpeas add great flavor and bulk to each taco, leaving you full and satisfied.These are great on their own, but to round […]

Ratatouille is a classic end-of-summer dish because it’s a wonderful way to use up your garden veggies. It’s delicious on it’s own, but also pairs well with fish and pasta.
