Black Bean Soup

This is another Instant Pot recipe!  If you do not have an Instant Pot (pressure cooker), this soup can easily be made on the stove.  It will have to simmer for a couple hours instead of 15 minutes, but it will still work.  Let me know what you think!   Ingredients 2 cups dry black… Continue reading Black Bean Soup

Breakfast

“Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’  None of the disciples dared ask him, ‘Who are you?’  They knew it was the Lord.” -John 21:12 Even after the resurrection, Jesus still knew of the importance of the first meal of the day.  Obviously, this passage points to much more than that, but we’ll start… Continue reading Breakfast

Maple Mustard Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Glaze

Leftover Curry Poutine

I know that leftovers aren’t the most glamorous foods to eat, especially if you eat the same meal over and over.  This is a wonderful opportunity to get creative in the kitchen!  I was all out of brown rice, and I needed to cook some potatoes before they went bad, so then the leftover curry… Continue reading Leftover Curry Poutine

Falafel Burger

This recipe is inspired by the falafel recipe on forksoverknives.com, which is phenomenal.  My version was born from having particular leftovers and missing certain ingredients in that recipe.  It turned out great, thankfully!  Definitely go and check out the original, though. Ingredients Patty 2 cans of garbanzo beans or 2 cups cooked chickpeas 3 cloves… Continue reading Falafel Burger

Chocolate Tahini Smoothie Bowl

Y’all, chocolate and peanut butter is so last season.  It’s all about the tahini now (just kidding pb+c forever).  In all seriousness, this recipe is quite good for chocolate lovers that want a twist on their favorite dessert.  Tahini, or crushed sesame seeds, offers a completely different flavor and nutrient profile to peanut butter, so… Continue reading Chocolate Tahini Smoothie Bowl
