I love this creamy, comforting, heart-warming potato leek soup. It’s so incredibly easy to make with only 12 pantry-friendly ingredients (and that’s including the garnish!) and it’s ready to eat in just over 30 minutes. There is something so satisfying about soup but I don’t make them very often, partly because we always eat leftovers for lunch and soups are harder to transport and reheat. But every time I do make soup I regret that we don’t eat them more often! They’re just so perfect. Especially this one. This potato leek soup blends up in the the most velvety, lusciously smooth texture and it is filling while not feeling too heavy or indulgent….
This tahini pasta skillet is my kind of fall meal. It’s stuffed full of kale and sweet potato, it’s wholesome and super quick to throw together. This one-pot (pan?) meal has it all: protein, carbs, veggies, and healthy fats. It’s a nice break from the popular cashew-based sauce and is also conveniently nut free for those with allergies!
Are you a sweet or savory breakfast person? I can go either way, but these days most of my breakfasts are savory. Typically I have toast, as I’m always baking bread. But sometimes you need to switch it up, and these vegan eggy bacon and chive muffins are perfect for that. They are easy to make and bake up soft and custardy inside, and they contain the perfect breakfast trio: eggy tofu, seitan bacon, and chives.
Tofu and chickpea flour work together to act as egg replacer in these muffins, and provide their soft and eggy texture. They also pack a punch of protein. Actually, protein accounts for over 20% of the calories, which is an impressive 6 grams of protein in 112 calories per muffin* (if anyone keeps track at home). I used whole wheat pastry flour for the extra protein content and higher fiber which keeps these extra healthy. But I have also successfully made the muffins with all purpose flour, and a blend of all purpose and whole wheat flour. While you could probably use all whole wheat flour in the muffins, the texture would suffer somewhat….
