Three-Bean Chili

Three-Bean Chili

Deliciously smoky and spicy, this is the perfect bowl of comfort for a cold, winter night. My secret ingredient is the cacao. This superfood brings a sweet depth and balances out the spice just right. Plus it adds a good dose of powerful antioxidants. Who says chocolate must be saved for dessert? You can opt [...]

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

The perfect Fall feel-good soup. Simple enough for a weeknight and elegant enough for your Thanksgiving table. The earthy sage adds a perfectly grounding flavor to the sweet apple and  smooth butternut squash. With a subtle kick from jalapeno, you will feel like kicking up your feet next to a warm fire on a cold night.  [...]

Golden Gazpacho

Golden Gazpacho

Summer is all about ripe produce and cooling foods, and Gazpacho is one of my favorites! A chilled Spanish soup that is perfect on a hot summer day, there is no cooking involved- just a little prep work- so this soup comes together in minutes. Serve it for lunch or as a snack. It's also [...]

Tomato, Corn + Okra Soup

Tomato, Corn + Okra Soup

This week's I.O.W (ingredient of the week): okra! As much as I love okra, I've surprisingly never really cooked with it before? I'm never inspired by the okra I find at the grocery stores, but at the farmer's market they were bright green, crisp, and unblemished. Plus, now that I'm in Texas I figured it [...]

Green Soup

Green Soup

A blend of greens, asparagus, avocado, lime, and jalapeno, this soup is anti-inflammatory and cleansing. The leafy greens pack a nutrient-dense and mineral-rich punch; the avocado is smoothing and is rich in luteins and folate, both great for heart health. The asparagus detoxifies our system, and with the mild heat from the jalapeno and the brightness from [...]

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Beautiful and vibrant, this soup is one of my go-to's to start a good healthy meal. Loaded with antioxidants, it's just filling enough with a big green kale salad topped with your favorite fixings. Depending on the season, I serve it warm or chilled. It's great both ways! Ingredients 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked 1-2 [...]

Spring Fling: Feel Good Soup

Spring Fling: Feel Good Soup

My husband and I both woke up (sick) on the wrong side of the bed yesterday. There was something in the air and it was only making my throat itch. We sadly canceled fun dinner plans with friends for a movie-night in on the couch. To make some sort of fun out of being sick, [...]

A Warm Welcome: Cioppino

A Warm Welcome: Cioppino

Just back from tying the knot and honeymoon-ing in Italy...it was an incredible whirlwind of a dream and now the only thing that I wanted to do all weekend long was eat comforting, home-cooked foods and settle back into reality. The jet-lag was taking longer than expected to recover from, even after trying to strategically [...]
