Quinoa and Cabbage Salad with Lime and Cilantro

Baker Bettie Savory, Vegetarian 7 Comments

Time for a cupboard clean-out! I try to go through my cupboards and fridge once a month and clean out the odds and ends that probably won’t get used up otherwise.  This time I had some left over quinoa from a previous post and a half a head of cabbage.  I also had some other veggies and cilantro.  I came up with this fresh salad that would be a perfect side dish, but I ate it as my meal with some sour cream on top.  Yum and healthy!

I am no different than most.  My resolutions include the standard: eat better, exercise more, try to be a nicer person… But I have a few that relate to this blog specifically that I want to share because I feel if I talk about them I am more likely to …

Spicy Roasted Carrot Soup

Baker Bettie Savory, Soups & Stews, Vegetarian 0 Comments

A warming roasted vegetable and carrot soup perfect for cleaning out the veggies from your fridge. The veggies get slightly caramelized when roasted and the carrots add a nice sweetness to this warming soup. I hate throwing food away.  I see the harsh reality of hunger everyday at my job and I don’t want to take for granted how lucky I am that I have never truly experienced hunger.  But it seems no matter how hard I try, something goes bad in my fridge each month resulting in wasted food.  My solution: 1 meal a week based completely on items that need …
