2 cups cooked wild black rice
4 onions cut into 8 wedges
4 cups diced butternut squash
4 cups kale, chopped
1 package Trader Joe’s cooked lentils
Sweet miso dressing (double the recipe)
I prepped this meal in a couple different steps.
1) Cook wild rice (this took about 45 min so plan ahead!)
2) Roast butternut squash with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt at 450 degrees until soft
3) Roast onion wedges with a drizzle of olive oil at 450 degrees until soft
4) In a large bowl, combine rice, onions and squash. Add cooked lentils.
5) Chop kale and mix into the bowl.
6) Prepare sweet miso dressing and mix it into the bowl until well combined. Add sea salt to taste.
I prepared this over two days and when we sat down to eat it, I reheated each of our bowls to enjoy this hot. I loved the change to wild rice, which I haven’t cooked in ages, and the sweet dressing adds nice flavor. The dressing is actually one of Funk’s favorite things I make. In the past I’ve used the dressing on pasta salad, but it was just as delicious on this wild rice dish.
I’ve started this pattern of making soups/stews in the crockpot on Sundays to eat either for dinner or lunch or both for the week. This week I came across a Moroccan Coconut and Chickpea Soup that intrigued me because it used two granny smith apples in the recipe. I love fruit in my savory dishes,
I was inspired by this post to make a sweet potato hash for dinner, and also inspired by my baby-food-making creations. I was already whipping up a big batch of sweet potato baby food and kale baby food for Zack last week, so I had a marathon cooking session and prepped our dinner as well.
Making homemade gnocchi has been on my Food Bucket List for a while now. In fact, it may have been the only thing on my Food Bucket List, but now I think I should add more things! The thought of making pasta from scratch with my kitchen that has two feet of counter space always
I never would have thought to make apple crumble/cobbler/crisp (what’s the difference?) in the slow cooker had I not seen Elizabeth’s blog post. I’ve used my crockpot for multiple breakfast recipes recently, so I tagged this one as my next recipe to make. Apple crisp (or cobbler or crumble) is inherently healthy with all those
I’m a big fan of minestrone soup. It’s a meal in a bowl with tons of veggies, pasta, and beans. And with Thanksgiving this week, I wanted to make something that would balance out the multiple slices of pecan pie I can’t wait to enjoy. A huge batch of this soup means I have enough
I was inspired to make black bean burgers after seeing them posted on Oh My Veggies recently. I clicked over to the original recipe on MyRecipes.com and decided to double the recipe so we’d have plenty of leftovers for the beginning of the week’s dinners. I made a few tweaks, so my simplified recipe is
A friend of mine made this amazing quinoa casserole for us to enjoy for lunch recently. She swore up and down that it was easy, and shared the recipe. Seeing it was from the Eat, Live, Run blog, which I am a fan of, I knew it’d be great. I made a few tweaks with
Fall = roasted veggie season in our kitchen. It actually coincides perfectly with when baby Zack is starting to eat solid foods, because now I can roast everything together and puree his portion. I actually grabbed the green beans and butternut squash in this recipe to try them with Zack, but since his tiny tummy
I was at a friend’s place recently. She’s a fellow new mom and we were talking about getting it all done, which happens to be a popular topic in my circle of new mom friends. As we were talking, she was whipping up a dinner for that evening in the slow cooker, saying if she
