I love lentils cooked any way – especially in soup. The other day was a particularly busy day and on my way home from town I had one more stop to make at our local health food store. Once in the door, something smelled heavenly (I was starving too as it was lunch time).
Our local [...]
Recently I had read an article on the health benefits of cashew nuts. When cashew nuts are soaked and pureed into a luscious smooth mixture it is a perfect addition to soups of all kinds.

Thought I would post this early as beautiful fresh tomatoes in our neck of the woods are not too far away. With an abundance of heirloom tomatoes making stewed tomatoes is a great way to use them up. Although for weeks on end we just eat them fresh off the vine.

Wow, did this dish ever exceed my expectations. It was YUMMY. With the Quinoa and Yams I also used cooked Mung Beans – a powerhouse of nutrition in a small bean. This is a dish that would be great for lunch or dinner – served at room temperature. It will get even better the next [...]

As mentioned in previous posts, every year, we buy our local organic [...]
This is a recipe where you could certainly use cream cheese, however, in this household I always make Yogurt Cheese – or dripped Yogurt. Recently, I discovered there is a company in California called Green Valley Organics that makes lactose free dairy products including sour cream and cream cheese. Oh heaven! It is very difficult [...]
Last year, I was not aware – or more likely not on “the ball” enough to find out about a local farm that delivered fresh weekly organic vegetables – till December no less. And the farm is only 8 minutes away from where we live.
The above picture, at least to me, is pure delight, [...]
We had these lovely Cheddar Kale Potato Cakes for lunch one day, however, they would be great as a side dish to any main, as well as a yummy Vegetarian main dish served with roasted squash and a salad. Easy to make and tasty!

5 Tblsp. mayonnaise
juice of 1/2 a small lemon
