Vegetable Jambalaya

Hubs had some delicious jambalaya at a work event, and came home asking if I could try to make a veggie version. Happily! This dish was a delight to make, basically a “set it and forget it” type meal, and the kind that fills your kitchen with the most mouthwatering aromas. I had all the…

Warm Squash Quinoa Salad

I feel like I haven’t cooked anything the whole month of December. I know that isn’t true, but it feels like we haven’t had a “normal” meal in a long time. It feels good to start to get back to the routine and eat our familiar and healthy homemade dinners again. This warm quinoa salad…

Radicchio and Squash Salad

I had never cooked with radicchio before but I saw a similar dish elsewhere and was inspired to make my own! I absolutely love the deep red color and, as you know, I’m really into trying new things. I learned that radicchio is sometimes called Italian Chicory because it is commonly used in Italian cooking….

Butternut Squash Tacos

In my humble opinion, almost anything could go in a taco and taste good. I’ve had cauliflower tacos, broccoli tacos, teriyaki tacos…you get my point. This was a “throw-together” meal made with a bag of frozen butternut squash, some red onion and balsamic vinegar, and a handful of fresh arugula. It took ten minutes, and…

Butternut Squash Pizza

Roasted butternut squash. Sweet caramelized red onion. Balsamic vinegar glaze. Fresh greens….all on a PIZZA!? No, I’m not kidding. And yes, you need to make this! We had a version of this pizza when we were visiting friends for New Year’s and I’ve been meaning to replicate it ever since because it was so easy…

Easy Three Bean Chili

Slow Cooker to the rescue! That should be my new mantra.  I seriously love this amazing appliance. I love that the apartment smells wonderful when I get home from work, I love that I have a hot cooked meal on the table in just minutes, and I love that it’s a VERY easy clean up!…

Butternut Squash Farro with Roasted Carrots

This farro recipe is a copy cat of Dig Inn’s farro bowl base. If you’re not familiar with Dig Inn, it’s this lovely fast casual food restaurant that’s basically a Chipotle but serves whole foods in healthy bowls. This farro is one of their seasonal offerings and is delicious topped with any of their roasted…

Spicy Bolognese with Butternut Squash Noodles

Maybe you never thought you’d have a yummy bolognese as a vegan or vegetarian. Or maybe you’ve had some okay versions with fake ground crumbles. But you’ve definitely never had a sauce like this before. I discovered soy chorizo and am excited to start using it in all sorts of recipes. In this recipe, I add…

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

It’s starting to feel like Autumn, so it’s time for those cozy comfy meals that we all know and love. Tonight I tried mac and cheese using butternut squash and it was absolutely scrumptious! Top that with some crispy fake bacon, “fak’n”, add in some green peas and baby spinach, and you’ve got yourself heaven on…
