sally’s red lentil, mushroom, and black bean soup

I definitely know summer is over when my body begins to crave soup! And that is exactly what has been happening…my body (and my kitchen!) have been speaking to me so I’m listening and have begun creating soups for the season…i simply LOVE making soup!!!

buckwheat noodle soup w/shitakes, bok choy, and sweet potatoes – a winter warmer

This past week’s chill has been going through me like no one else’s business. I’ve been living in long underwear to keep myself insulated but cooking up some warming soup has been my true life saver.

sally’s root vegetable soup

‘Tis the season for root vegetables – in addition to roasting these grounding veggies, I am a huge fan of using them in soup. Here’s my latest creation…enjoy!

sally’s autumn healing soup

This soup is always a treat when the weather begins to cool down from a steamy summer. It offers immunity-boosting properties and nourishes the body with fiber and protein. The aduki beans are one of the easiest beans to digest. Adding in the kombu also aids in the digestion of the beans.

grated beet and seaweed salad

I recently bought some medium-sized red beets from the farmer’s market and was ready to try preparing them. I admit I haven’t cooked beets often and I was feeling a bit intimidated, but i found a recipe that sounded worth trying

stuffed acorn squash

I love the colors of Fall and especially all of the scrumptious squash that’s now in season. This evening I stuffed acorn squash with quinoa, collards, shiitakes, tomatoes, onions and garlic and it was heavenly.

This salad can be an entire meal if you add in a protein, such as pan-sautéed tofu (as shown in the picture), chicken, salmon or beef. I also serve it as a side salad…as usual, there are many options. Enjoy!
