Chickpea Salad Sandwich

No chickens were harmed in the making of this sandwich. Haha, but seriously, most people eat chicken salad sandwiches, but that’s filled with a lot of yucky ingredients. With this yummy recipe you can have the same flavors while also maintaining a healthy body and saving some chickens in the process.

Simple Apple Salad

A little sweetness in a salad is sometimes a good thing. The addition of apples paired with the creamy dressing makes for a welcome addition to any meal.

Amaranth Tabouli

Tabouli is a great summertime recipe. It’s easy to make ahead of time, stores well for an extended period of time, is easy to take on picnics, and is a refreshing addition to any meal. Most tabouli are made with couscous or quinoa, but the use of amaranth (an ancient grain) is a welcome change I think you’ll enjoy.

Grilled Carrots with Maple Tahini Sauce

Yes, it’s summer and the grills are going full force, and just because we’re not eating meat in no way means the grill is not useful. This recipe for grilled carrots is so yummy, you won’t want to skip the backyard barbecue.

Grilled Watermelon

Putting watermelon on the grill isn’t the first thing I would’ve thought of but the grill was there and I figured, why not. It’s delicious! The best thing about it is the fresh flavors paired with the caramelization from the grill. It’s a new must for us at family barbecues.

Watermelon Jicama Salad

There’s something about watermelon and summer; it just goes together so well. My favorite is adding a bit of spice to watermelon, or really anything for that matter. The crunchiness of the jicama is a nice addition to the refreshingly sweet watermelon. This is great as a side side or stored in the refrigerator as a snack.

Roasted Broccoli

Adding roasted broccoli to a dish is an easy way to make any meal feel more gourmet with very little effort. Roasted broccoli is great added to salads, soups, pasta dishes, or even a casserole. The little bit of charring adds a nice flavor.

Kale Full Meal Salad

Having prepped veggies in the refrigerator is an easy way to have a quick snack or meal. This was made from ingredients that I had already pre-cut in my refrigerator. If you don’t have these ingredients prepped before hand, add about ten minutes to the prep time.
