I made this simple soup last night and it was heavenly. Here’s what I did: I didn’t have leeks, so I substituted 2 chopped onions. I made up a mixture of Herbes de Provence following the recipe at the end, and at the very end, I pureed part of the soup using a hand-blender, trying to keep most of the carrot pieces intact. Also, I followed the regular directions, not the pressure cooker ones, because it was such a quick-cooking dish. Definitely a keeper.

An easy, healthy risotto made with cooked brown rice and cruciferous vegetables.
A quick and easy soup made from can pumpkin and tomatoes.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest calls home-made spaghetti sauce “better than bottled.” I call it “easier than you think.” Contrary to what I’ve found in a lot of overpriced cookbooks, pasta sauce works just fine if you let it cook for just as long as it takes your pasta to boil.
1 can of tomatoes
2 handful of frozen green peas…
3 cups leftover cooked rice
1 1-lb package frozen spinach…
I got this somewhere on the net and made it for the first time last week. Very easy. Next time I think I’ll use chili powder or cumin instead of the basil and thyme; the spices didn’t seem right to me, though my husband loved it.
This recipe is from cooking light, and I think it would be pretty “family friendly.” You could maybe sub. normal button mushrooms to make it more “kid friendly.” It is very quick and easy, which is great for families! I just eliminated the oil and sautéd the veggies in water, which works great.
Here’s another quick recipe my family adores that can be made quickly and served in those acorn squash boats or alone.
Very fast and easy to make.
3/4 cup of quinoa
1 1/2 cups of water…
This recipe relies on chipotle chiles. These are dried, medium spiced chiles that have been smoked to create a unique flavor to any dish. If you cannot find dried chipotle chiles, use a fresh, diced jalapeno and add 1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke.
1 C chopped onion
1 tsp minced garlic…
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, diced…
A very hearty stew that, because of the portabella mushrooms, tastes downright meaty.
- Vegan Irish Cream CheesecakeWhen my family and I left town last week to spend Christmas with our two families, the last thing I expected was to come home with a new recipe to share. I’d signed off on Facebook for the holidays and didn’t even bring a camera with me. My plan was to make only tried and... […]
- Daybreak (and Pineapple Corn Bread)The night my son drove me back to the coast after our family trip for Christmas in southern Idaho, we drove straight into the wind and rain coming in from the ocean. The closer we got, the more it came down. Once again I was grateful for my son’s skill at driving on wet […]
