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.

delicata squash: a sweet treat for fall

Also called Sweet Potato Squash or Bohemian Squash, I was turned on to this variety of squash a couple of years ago.

black quinoa with tempeh and veggies

A quick, easy and nutrient rich meal.

raw kale, orange, and avocado salad with grape tomatoes

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!

carrot cornbread

Now that soup season is in full swing, enjoying a big bowl of hearty soup is always much better with a hunk of bread.

the food evolution: roasted carrots

I had the privilege and pleasure of shooting this cooking video on how to make roasted carrots,a delicious and healthy snack and side dish, with my dear friend and colleague, Diane Hoch, founder of The Food Evolution. Enjoy!

raw zucchini pasta

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.

heirloom tomato, mushroom, and spinach soup

The first soup of the season is always my favorite. Since I have been pureeing all of my food these last few weeks (more on that in a separate post), I had these ingredients just waiting to be used for my cooking pleasure.

sally’s meatless monday soup

One of my favorite weeknight meals is soup. I enjoy using whatever i have in my refrigerator and pantry and essentially creating something from nothing in as little time as possible.
