Savory Lentil Loaf

This hearty dish was a long time coming in my household, it took me several attempts to get the consistency and the sauce right. As it typically goes, simple is best!

Creamy Hearty Gazpacho

This is a hemp gazpacho. It’s a celebration of luscious Summer tomato harvests, punchy and tangy-sweet. Porcini mushrooms add essential, grounding umami. Balsamic vinegar brings out the juicy flavor of the ripe tomatoes. I’ve added hemp hearts for protein and a dose of Omega-3’s. They add a lovely creaminess to the chilled soup. And it […]
