This simple soup, ready in about 30 minutes, uses peanut butter to enhance the flavour and texture of the soup. Pumpkins are a little sweet and contain very little protein. The additional of the peanut butter, rich in protein and good fats, makes this a well-balanced and hearty winter meal. ...more

The Cheesy, Meatless Casserole You've Been Craving

I grew up in a family with 10 kids, which meant big casseroles that could feed a crowd were on the menu pretty often at our house. Now that I'm an adult and usually just feeding one or two people, I like casseroles for the way you can cook them once, then freeze reheat them for quick meals later. ...more

Quinoa Chickpea Burgers with Pickled Veggies and Sriracha Mayo

Do you like weird food as much as I do? If so this may be the recipe for you. Ever since trying a Bahn Mi (Vietnamese sandwich) at a little shop in Philly, I can't stop thinking about pickled vegetables and spicy flavors with bread.

I'm sure another type of bean (black beans maybe?) would be lovely, or Crystal hot sauce instead of sriracha....more
