Stir Fried Mung Beans, Cabbage and Bell Pepper with Garlic Tofu

Juicy, crunchy mung bean sprouts. I love them! I often toss a handful into a soup or stir fry, but this recipe makes them the star. These sprouts may not look especially nutritious. Pale and mostly water, there are only around 31 calories in a cup. But appearances can be deceiving. Remember, this is a [...]

Apple Carrot Cranberry Ginger Juice

It’s cranberry season! I love fresh cranberries. When they go on sale at my grocery store I stock up, putting several bags in the freezer to enjoy in later months. One of my new favorite ways to use fresh cranberries is in a juice. This juice is a good balance of tart and sweet, and [...]

Better Than Chicken Noodle Skillet Casserole

This week I made over a former family favorite – Tuna Noodle Casserole. The new version is plant-based and utilizes a meat replacement product from Beyond Meat® called Beyond Chicken Strips.

What you may not have heard is that what you eat can dramatically improve those odds. This week I made a vegetable soup from one of Candice Kumai’s recipes in her new book [...]

End of Summer Skillet Vegetable Salad

Toward the end of summer, when the days are still hot and farm fresh vegetables are abundant, a healthy dinner can be fast and easy. I love this skillet salad. Chopped and diced fresh vegetables are quickly seared in a smokin’ hot cast iron skillet, then tossed with a cilantro-lime dressing. By adding a can [...]

The Amazing Onion – Health Benefits and Recipes

I planted onions for the first time this spring. Over the weeks I watched the bulbs grow into creamy white globes topped by long, green shoots. When the tops fell over (literally, they fall down) I pulled them up, rinsed them off and set them on my patio table to dry in the hot summer [...]

Greek Marinated Stuffed Portobellos

Yowza!  My self-watering planters were bursting with nearly overgrown English Breakfast radishes. I pulled up a dozen or more, and brought them inside.  These blushing beauties were [...]
