Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup

TGIF! Today I’m cooking up a batch of my mom’s Minestrone Soup with a few additions because I’m all about working with what I have on hand. (I had black beans, zucchini, butternut squash and kale). My love of cooking, and especially soup, goes back…

Lemony Beet Hummus

I am Labor Day weekend ready with this brightly-colored Beet Hummus from The Minimalist Baker. My entire menu is plant-based and this beauty will be joining a charcuterie board of cashew cheeses, figs, Persian cucumbers, radicchio, baby heirloom tomatoes, sweet baby peppers, rainbow carrots, baguette and crackers.

I’m not saying this recipe is going to get you a bikini body, but it sure satisfies that take-out noodle craving, especially on a hot August night in New York City! And, it’s seriously so much better than anything you could ever order out. If you’re looking to add more protein, garnish with some shrimp, tofu, chicken, or egg. I hope you enjoy as much we did!
