after too much traveling, unpacking and 3 thanksgiving meals, i have been more than ready to get back to our dinner routine. this is the first week that i’ve been able to cook in our new home, and it’s felt really good to get back in the kitchen. the local produce here is nothing compared to what we’re used to, but we’re making do with a little health food store and the local farm’s produce. in season here we have brussel sprouts, apples, winter greens, green beans and potatoes.
monday: white bean and vegetable stew served with roasted asparagus and a salad
tuesday: celebration roast pasty with a cranberry chutney served with sauteed kale and a salad
wednesday: simple vegetable curry
thursday: breakfast polenta with apple sage sausage, onion and peppers (also referred to this recipe)
friday: fragrant pho noodle bowl
what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?
we follow a whole foods, plant based diet. the dinner ideas posts are a way for me to log our dinners, how we make eating this way easy, and hopefully inspire you to try some new things as well. they are always meat free, dairy free and often gluten free. you can follow the posts here, and i encourage you to share your favorite recipes with us as well!
