    Quick & Easy Vegetable Gnocchi My husband is obsessed with gnocchi. For that reason we typically always have a couple packs on hand. This meal is great for those tough nights where you just don’t know what to make for dinner. This was created on one of those nights. We had a variety of pre-cut vegetables, some left over vegetable broth and with some seasonings a delicious meal was created. To add more protein we love to dice up the Field Roast Sausages and toss them into the mix. The quantities are odd with this one. I’d say its a large portion for 2 people or a small/medium sized portion…

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup…who would’ve thought I’d be creating warm soup recipes in the middle of July?! But, here I am 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m often confronted with people telling me they’re searching for more protein in their diet. Especially when contemplating switching to vegan/plant-based. I find it comes easy to me, once you really open up to other foods that you normally wouldn’t go for. Nuts, seeds and different vegetables all provide exactly what you need.
