Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

Do you have a can or two of pumpkin puree hanging around from Thanksgiving? Here’s a quick lunch or dinner soup that makes up in a hurry. If you have leftover chicken or vegetables, add them to create a heartier soup. Cauliflower is one of my favorite adds. Pebre is a good topping and Flaxseed…

Hemp Basil Pesto

Pesto

One of the flavor treats I’ve found in my gluten-free adventure is pesto. This version is also dairy free which I’ve comed to prefer. Before this recipe when I used a traditional recipe with Parmesean cheese, clean up could get tough, trying to scrape all the cheese residue off the dishes. The beauty of this…

Don’t miss out on dessert

My preference is to use poblanos in this recipe, but as we all know, sometimes poblanos aren’t available. That’s how this dish got…

Jicama Slaw

Jicama Slaw

For years I walked past jicama in the produce department thinking it was a turnip. Actually, some people do call it Mexican turnip but it is nothing like a turnip! Once I finally ate jicama and knew how to prepare it, jicama became one of my favorites. The jicama skin peels easily once you quarter…
