When it comes to vegetables, I appreciate simplicity. It’s not that more complex dishes aren’t fun, but for everyday, simple is best. When the weather gets cooler outside, I like to make oven roasted vegetables because it’s easy, and roasting lends itself well to most in-season winter veggies. It’s fun to change things up occasionally though, and that’s just what this Greek oven roasted vegetables recipe does. (more…)

Healthy Spinach Patties

A spinach recipe without cheese! Delicious, healthy, spinach patties are a unique side dish to help you eat your greens! {paleo, whole30, dairy free, gluten free}

Sometimes I get a little overzealous about spinach. I frequently buy the huge warehouse boxes of organic at the store because it’s such a good deal. Normally, this isn’t a problem as one of my favorite quick breakfasts consists of eggs and spinach (savory-breakfast gal here), so I will happily go through the box almost by myself in a week because it’s a great source of calcium, vitamins, lots of good stuff. Spinach also tastes really good.  (more…)

Brussels Sprouts Salad

It takes just 10 minutes to make this easy and delicious fresh Brussels sprouts salad with flavors inspired by the Mediterranean!

I think I have more Brussels sprouts recipes on this blog than any other single ingredient. I know it’s definitely the most frequently featured vegetable, but I’ve always roasted it or cooked it in some way, and this time I didn’t, so it’s different enough to merit ANOTHER Brussels sprouts post. Brussels sprouts are wonderful in any season, even when you can’t bear the thought of turning on the oven. They’re versatile like that. (more…)

I distinctly remember the texture of cold cream of whatever soup in the green bean casserole that came with the Thanksgiving dinners my mom would order at the grocery store. I promise we warmed them, but there were always leftovers and I have a habit of testing dishes cold and deciding if I really like them partially based on their texture at the one temperature most dishes are not designed to be served. That particular green bean casserole just didn’t make the cut.

Ban boring green beans! Meyer Lemon Green Beans with Almonds - healthy and so easy to make! #paleo #primal #Whole30

I’ve had great green bean casseroles since then, but they’re clearly not an every day dish. Usually loaded with butter and other fats, it’s just not something I really want to put on our family table more frequently than say, Thanksgiving. That meant that green beans were not frequent guests at our dinner table, and rather under appreciated by me until a few years ago. I really love the flavor of green beans, they’re delicious! A little sweet, crunchy, a bit earthy, it’s just nice, and a flavor that deserves to be complimented and celebrated. (more…)
