Healthy + Hearty: Meatless Comfort Food

Healthy + Hearty: Meatless Comfort Food

October 15, 2012

After being spoiled with seemingly endless days of sunshine this Fall, the past blustery weekend of rain brought us all back to reality here on the West Coast. Although I would never complain about the sunshine, I have never seen our lawn so burnt and must admit that it felt pretty cozy cuddling up on the couch with the fireplace on once again. And now that I’m settling into a bit of a work routine, I’m really looking forward to getting back to cooking healthy and hearty meals for my family. With the recent meat recalls, I’ve been thinking a lot more about where our food actually comes from and will be trying to sneak a few more meatless meals into the rotation…extra vegetables are always a good thing! Here are a few delicious looking recipes that got my mouth watering…

Kale, White Bean + Potato Soup by Fit Sugar

Beet, Goat Cheese + Arugula Sandwich by BS in the Kitchen

Blueberry Coconut Pecan Breakfast Cookies by Kumquat

Lemony Pesto Pasta with Edamame + Almonds by The Kitchn

Pumpkin Rolls + Borscht by Gobo Root

Butternut Squash + Sage Lasagna by Martha Stewart

Spinach + Cheddar Muffins by Foodbeam

The fellas in my family are a bit more picky than us gals when it comes to vegetables so I may have to get sly with some extra blending to hide them away but I think it’s important to keep bringing new tastes and flavour combinations into the mix, don’t you? How do you manage picky eaters in your house? Have any favourite recipes for Fall? Please share!
