This is one of my go-to soups for any season. It first caught my eye on Pinterest and then I discovered the Butterfly Food blog and her gorgeous food photos. You can throw in any fresh vegetables you would like and the soup is delicious every time. This time I added fresh, shelled english peas to celebrate some of the first spring vegetables at the market. Continue reading
These pesto scallops with zucchini on top of a bed of pasta is one of the most satisfying meals I have had in a long time. Not only does it look pretty, but it tastes amazing too.
They key here is to have a really good pesto on hand. I used CoBee’s Cuisine Pesto, which I picked up at the Sausalito Farmer’s market the other weekend. But a homemade pesto or your favorite store bought brand will work fine.
I can’t wait to make this again for my mom on Mother’s Day. Continue reading
Bean burgers are my new found favorite meal. Last week I tried a Chipotle Black Bean burger which turned out great. This recipe might be even better. It combines the traditional flavors of Falafel with a creamy cucumber Tzatziki sauce.
As these patties are grilled, not fried, it is only 160 calories and you can jazz it up with different toppings. I used tzatziki, tomato, spinach and a shmear of hummus.
I’m looking for other bean burger recipes. If you have some let me know! Enjoy!
This was our second time experimenting with a baked French Toast. Previously we have made Paula Deen’s decadent southern style baked french toast, which was absolutely amazing, but also packed in about a pound of butter. Gotta love that lady. This version comes from the other spectrum of the Food Network. It is an Ellie Krieger recipe and thus it is a lot lighter and healthier.
Whichever one you end up making, I am sure your guests will be pleased.
Every so often we go to this little neighborhood diner/cafe called The Cove in San Francisco. If you ever find yourself there ask for the Black Bean Burger. It isn’t usually on the menu but it is the most delicious thing ever! You can ask the waiter if they have it and the response is usually yes.
This is my attempt to recreate this delicious healthy meal. I’m not going to lie – mine is better! Ask Jason, he approves!
To my surprise it is extremely easy to make and packs in a fiberous punch. I made really large patties and they only had 190 calories each. I think this might be my new favorite recipe.
