It’s that time of year again. The time for hearty comforting food. A sweet root vegetable mash is just the thing.
It is a great alternative to mashed potatoes. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some mashed potatoes. Who doesn’t?
I also love this root vegetable mash. And I mean love. It just makes me feel good inside, especially on a cold fall or winter’s night. Continue reading
Although it is officially spring, the weather isn’t making me a believer. As my healthy vegetarian split pea soup simmers away on the stove the thermometer outside reads 5 below! It’s April and it’s freezing out! (note: written on April 2nd) No sense in fighting it because there is nothing we can do about it.
Embrace these last few days of cold weather with a warming soup. This pea soup is filling and bursting with flavour. Dried peas are a good source of protein and are packed with fibre. They will provide you with long lasting slow burning energy to get you through your day.
Brussels Sprouts. Good old brussels sprouts. Disliked by many, and loved as well. You either love them or hate them. I am convinced a lot more people would/could love them if they had them prepared differently. I love brussels sprouts even if they are just steamed or boiled, but ye,s they do have a strong flavour.
For those who do not share my love of brussels sprouts, a dish like this jalapeño, lime, sweet potato, brussels sprouts hash might just help change their mind. Combining them with roasted sweet potatoes definitely might help convert more of you. The sweet deliciousness of roasted sweet potatoes is hard not to love. A little love served up in the form of lime, jalapeño and cilantro. Boo ya! Now we are talking! You know you want some. It’s ok to admit it. I won’t tell anyone.
