Chinese food is my gateway drug. As you may know, I spent 25+ years as a strict vegetarian. Health issues and food intolerances led me to start eating a little meat as I’m unable to eat grains and dairy. Chinese food brings me a perfect solution. Lots of veggies with a smaller amount of meat […]
We love soup, but our food intolerances and dislikes have made most soups difficult to share. This old fashioned paleo chicken noodle soup recipe is delicious. I didn’t used to like the actual chicken part of the soup, but it’s grown on me. If you’re gluten-free, you can use rice noodles. Skip the noodles […]
I swapped in some chickpeas and rustled up this meal on a busy weeknight. It’s filled with cheese, homemade cream of mushroom soup, broccoli and hearty brown rice.
I’m super excited about a new way to serve raw broccoli, with Thai flavors, red onion and peanuts. Yum!
I love eggplant parmesan. But sometimes the eggplant gets a tad on the squishy side for me. So, I absolutely loved this Eggplant Tian recipe I made last year. But I found a new date to the Parmesan Prom: Broccoli Parmesan! I’ve never even heard of this beautiful combination before, but it’s incredible. As you […]
These Chickpea Brown Rice Burgers are a delicious option for vegan, meat-free option for Lent. And a great way to sneak extra broccoli in for kids who aren’t such big fans. We used our CrockPot Salsa Chickpeas (mainly because that’s what I had in the fridge) for a little extra pizzazz and it turned out great. […]
Chickpea Broccoli Alfredo Recipe Day 354. I realized recently that I’ve somehow neglected to make a simple Chicken Broccoli Alfredo this year. Our recent need for super simple foods made a chickpea version a great choice for today. In addition to swapping out the chicken for chickpeas, I used cream cheese instead of Parmesan and […]
Day 348. It’s another birthday today, my husband’s this time and as his dinner, he gets this incredibly non-photogenic, but creamy delicious risotto. I adapted it from a delicious recipe for Corn Risotto in Stephanie O’Dea’s Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook. The corn version sounds super tasty, but our kids are broccoli addicts, […]
Day 321. Pizzadillas! Woo! This one’s a special treat for the kids, who love tortillas, broccoli and pizza to an almost inexplicable degree. Today, I’ve managed to combine all three in a Beef Broccoli Pizzadilla. This is another recipe that’s easy to veganize with Daiya cheese. Beef Broccoli Pizzadillas Ingredients 1/2 cup broccoli florets, finely […]
Day 320. The Chickpea Broccoli Roll-ups were such a big hit I thought I’d attempt to create another roll-up that (hopefully) the kids will enjoy. I found this delicious-sounding Broccoli Cheese Stromboli recipe and adapted that into crescent roll-ups. It should satisfy the kids’ love of broccoli and pizza. This is an easy one to […]
