Hearty Sweet Potato and Kale Soup

Hearty Sweet Potato and Kale Soup

      This Sweet Potato and Kale Soup was created in partnership with ALDI. All opinions are our own. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: soups on repeat in the winter months. When we talk to people about getting started with cooking healthier foods at home, soup is generally where we start. Why? Soups are a tasty, easy way to eat a ton of vegetables without realizing it, and they’re simple to put together. This sweet potato and kale soup combines ingredients we use quite a bit in our cooking in a new way. It’s a vaguely Mexican stew, with black beans thrown in and flavored with oregano, cumin, and just enough lime juice so that it pops. Sliced green onions stirred in at the end of cooking keep it tasting fresh, and with sliced radish and a dollop of Greek yogurt as a garnish, it’s a delicious way to load up on nutrients. (Want more ideas? Here are some of our favorite soup recipes.) We developed this soup recipe using ingredients available through our new partner, ALDI, who is committed to carrying better-for-you ingredients and expanding their organic product offerings. ALDI’s new Hello, Healthy blog has healthy living resources including recipes, […]

30-Minute Chocolate Donuts (Vegan + GF)

Did you know there’s been a donut pan saga in our home?

I’ve been contemplating making baked donuts for the blog since the very beginning, but I always had a hard time justifying a donut pan when my recipes require just standard, minimal equipment. I don’t even own a stand mixer! Yes, I take this minimalist stuff seriously.

Fast forward nearly 5 years and practically everyone has a donut pan – except me.

Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup

Instant Pot Tomato Basil Soup

This is the soup I crave on nights I want soup with a sandwich (great with grilled cheese or garlic bread!). It’s super easy and can be made anytime of the year because it uses canned tomatoes. This soup is adapted from my Slow Cooker Tomato Soup recipe which I changed up a little to […]

The Best Vegan Gluten-Free Waffles

I have made vegan, gluten-free waffles before, but none compare to these.

These perfect waffles are crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, perfectly sweet, and undetectably vegan and gluten-free. Shall we?

This recipe was a reader request. Someone asked if I’d tested whipped aquafaba (the brine/liquid in a can of chickpeas) in classic waffles, which I hadn’t! So I got to work testing.
