Some Food Inspiration

Hey y’all! If you’re like us and have found yourself in a food rut as the weather gets colder, we’re here to offer some fresh ideas from around the web.  These recipes reflect what I’m craving this time of year…comfort food with lots of veggies (okay, and treats, too).

Things We’ve Tried Recently:

These lentil, chickpea, and carrot veggie burgers.  We used to make the chickpea burgers from 101 cookbooks almost once a week, but I got so tired of them and started searching for a new recipe.  These lentil burgers are a total winner.

This version of adult spaghettios.  This was a warm, comforting meal for a chilly night.

You guys!  This is seriously the best bread I’ve ever baked.  I have almost eaten an entire loaf.

This shrimp etoufee was one of my favorite things I’ve made in a while.  I made my own shrimp stock with the shells!

Homemade funfetti cake/cupcakes.  These are not sickly sweet, which I appreciate.  I’m making these (with blue sprinkles) for an upcoming wedding shower!

On the docket:

Pineapple fried rice.  This just looks so fresh right now!

Bean and veggie tostadas.  These look so easy and so good.  One of those dinners for when you don’t want to cook dinner.

This ginger and sweet potato dal.  Those photos…how can you not want to make this?

Old favorites: These are all great recipes but I’ve been making them way too often.  Regardless, I will be revisiting them again after a short break.

Mango and peanut tofu wraps.  So fresh and crunchy!  This is also the only way my husband will eat tofu.  You can sub frozen thawed mangoes to keep costs down.

Coconut quinoa with roasted cauliflower.  Perfect light and easy meal for busy nights.

Roasted cauliflower curry soup.  Maybe we should just cook every single recipe from Cookie + Kate.  Who’s in?

These sweet potato, black bean, and corn enchiladas.  These are so easy and comforting, which is probably why they appear on our meal plan nearly weekly.

This jerk chicken and coconut rice.  I use bone-in dark meat chicken, marinate it overnight, then grill it.

This is the best pad thai I’ve made at home.  I usually leave off the chicken and add a little soy sauce and egg.
