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.
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.
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!
If you’re a pasta lover you’re going to love this recipe. One of my favorite foods in Spring is zucchini and with the help of my spiralizer, I can prepare my zucchini so that it looks like pasta, except zucchini pasta has much more nutritional benefit than traditional spaghetti AND it’s much more colorful.
