Hearty-Hearty Minestrone Soup

Another great recipe submitted by Katherine Lawrence of www.plantbasedhealth.com

Savory Potato Pear Stew

This stew was inspired by a vacation—it was time to clear out the fridge, stoke up on immune boosting beta-carotene and have leftovers in the freezer upon our return home.

I love thick, hearty chili in cold weather. It’s always so satisfying and filling, so it makes a great comfort food…especially when served my favorite way: over warm grits!

A healthy recipe for a traditional holiday treat.

Baked Apples

Spicy Orange Cranberry Salsa

Cranberries and oranges with jalapeno pepper for extra kick.

Pumpkin Smoothie

1 15oz can Pumpkin
1 1/2 c Soy Milk
1T. Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar…

Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth. The quinoa will give it texture, in addition to lots of protein and fiber.
