Vegan Butternut Squash Soup with Cardamom

A spiced vegan butternut squash soup with cardamom, made extra creamy with coconut milk. Perfect soup for the fall and the holidays!

In the spirit of halloween next week, the Recipe Redux is gettin a little spooky this month. We’re creeping and crawling all the way to the back of our dusty dark spice cabinets and pulling out that spooky spice that we’re afraid to use. The Recipe Redux is challenging us to conquer our spooky spice fear and show that spice who’s boss!

Soooo I’m gonna be totally real with you for a minute here about how I got to my spice and recipe inspiration. This is slightly embarrassing. But also pretty hilarious.

Last week, I walked on over to my spice rack and gave it a little spin to see which spice spooked me out the most. I came up with marjoram and coriander. I was like I don’t…

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Dip

A creamy apple dip fit for fall made with just three ingredients: Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and salted caramel. 

Happy first day of Fall! I’m always a little hesitant as we wind down the last few days of summer to really start embracing fall produce. I think I like to hang onto summer produce (and visions of beaches, pool parties, summer vacations) up until the very last second. But this year I came around a little early to apples.

I like to think of apples as the gateway fall produce – you start with apples, then before you know it, you’re onto pumpkin, and then some serious butternut squash, and by then you’re hooked onto fall (aside: I blame my newfound obsession with Breaking Bad for my drug analogy there). 🙂

I’m obsessed with apples and nut butters. Peanut, almond, cashew. Love ’em all on apples. It’s the perfect afternoon snack – fiber, protein…

Ultimate Super Bowl Snack Trio: Pistachios + Salt & Vinegar Kale Chips + Sriracha Popcorn

Disclosure: By posting this pairing I am entering a contest sponsored by Pistachio Health Institute and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Super Bowl Sunday is here! Go Bills! Oh, wait. Hey, a girl can dream…

This month, the folks over at the Pistachio Health Institute challenged us Recipe Reduxers to come up with unique food and drink pairings for in-shell pistachios. I love in-shell pistachios because they’re salty and crunchy to satisfy any snack craving. Plus, a one-ounce serving equals (drum roll, please) approximately 49 nuts, which is more nuts per serving than any other snack nut, and a reduced serving of about 30 pistachios is just about 100 calories. In-shell pistachios are also surprisingly versatile and can be paired with sweet or savory, indulgent or heart-healthy.

My food pairing was inspired by the big game day.

The Ultimate…

Beet Tzatziki with Beet Green Chips

Nutrition packed and vibrant in color, this creamy, delicious beet tzatziki is one not to miss. Bonus points for using the whole beet plant to make beet green chips to go with!Two weeks ago I was in Santorini, Greece, soaking up sunshine, eating all the seafood, tomatoes, feta and tzatziki I could get my hands on. Today, I am sitting in a Starbucks drinking an overpriced latte staring at nothing but grey clouds. TAKE ME BACK, PLEASE.In all seriousness though, I’m so grateful for the experience to have visited Greece and to have traveled across the globe with my husband (this was our first international trip together…outside of Mexico and Canada). Greece was beautiful – from the breathtaking sunsets in Santorini to the seaside dinners to the pristine white calderas. And I couldn’t get over the hospitality there. It became the norm that every time we would finish dinner and decline dessert and…
