Mushroom Swiss Lentil Burgers

 While veggie burgers can be a little more work to make than traditional burgers, their flavor  and nutritional benefits make it all worth it. These are great to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for lunch since the fiber will help to keep you full throughout the day. If you’re watching your

Rosemary Ginger Cranberry Sauce

 With Thanksgiving right around the corner (woo!), it’s time to start planning my menu. I always enjoy keeping some things the same (you can’t mess with buttery mashed potatoes), but it’s nice to add a creative spin to favorites like cranberry sauce. Fresh cranberries are only available for a short time each year, so I

Halibut with Spinach and Sundried Tomatoes in Parchment

Halibut is a client favorite because of it’s mild flavor and perfect flaky texture. Baking it in parchment  paper allows it to stay juicy and allows all the flavors to meld together. This is definitely a meal in itself, but it would also be great served on a bed of quinoa or brown rice for

Chili-Garlic Rutabaga Fries with Spicy Mayo

Rutabagas are often overlooked in the produce section, probably because they are so big and people are unsure what to do with them. I happen to love them roasted or mashed, they just need some flavor added to them (in this case, chili powder and garlic). I also like the fact that one cup only

Cranberry and Dark Chocolate Blondies

This weekend at the farmers market I saw cranberries and got super excited because that’s when you know it’s almost the holiday season. While using these to make cranberry sauce is always awesome, these berries are also delicious to use in baked goods (like cakes, cookies and scones) to add a burst of tart flavor

Pumpkin Chicken Tikka Masala

It’s amazing what richness and delicious flavor pumpkin puree can add to savory dishes (and it adds a healthy dose of vitamins and fiber as well). I’m a huge fan of Indian food, and chicken tikka masala is always a dish I go for. I love the variety of spices and creamy texture. If you

Creamy Mushroom and Leek Soup with Pumpernickel Croutons

While lots of people are hit or miss with mushrooms, I’ve always been a fan (especially of mushroom soup). The earthy flavors of this soup are so comforting and perfect for chilly fall evenings. If you’re not a huge pumpernickel fan, simply swap in sourdough or baguette for the croutons. 1. Preheat oven to 400.

Roasted Butternut Squash and White Bean Enchiladas

Butternut squash is always a client favorite – it’s creamy, buttery texture and sweet flavor makes it great for side dishes, entrees and even desserts. If you’re looking to eat plant-based meals occasionally during the week (for added nutrition and cost savings), this is a great recipe to add to your list. The flavor of
