FRIDAY! So happy for the weekend: kids home, farmers market ritual, stocking the fridge and pantry, and cooking up some delicious food. We LOVE food in our house, like I am always thinking about food and what I’m going to eat and make next….to me food is an absolute pleasure of life. Here’s a few dinner ideas of what we’ll be making this week:
miso soup with winter veggies: brothy and delicious, plus packed with minerals from the seaweed, mushrooms, and kale. I’ll add some bulk tofu in with it, too + rice or rice noodles.

curried lentil, tomato + coconut soup: easy and flavorful + a green salad and a scoop of rice or quinoa

herby grain salad with olives and lemon + roasted veg (beets or carrots) + I’ll add some steamed kale in with the salad, too, for more greens
baked tofu with coconut kale: an easy sheet pan style dinner. + a fresh raw salad: thinly sliced fennel, apple, bitter greens (arugula, radicchio. endive would all work) and a mustardy vinaigrette.
buddha bowls: roasted sweet potato, sautéed or massaged kale, chickpeas, and a bright yogurt sauce (coconut yogurt mixed with lime juice + zest, black pepper, chili flakes) FAST and easy. Roast the sweet potatoes in the am before you go to work or the night before to make this come together in less than 10 minutes.
pecan-miso butter: I’ve been dying to make this for a fancy PB&J. Looks super easy and delicious. C is always asking for this kind of sandwich for lunch (I think many of her peers eat this on the daily) so I thought I’d give it a whirl with this fancy version of a classic.
healthy choc chunk cookies: these look so good and they’ve got great ingredients +GF. You could leave out the oil and sub applesauce or more banana probably to make these oil free too.
curried sweet potato hummus: for lunches and to add a dollop to salads for a filling protein + fiber boost.
