4 Ingredient Raw Vegan Pesto

This recipe was adapted from the Soup Au Pistou recipe (which we cannot get enough of in our house!) and adapted this to make more of a sauce. This pesto would be great as a sauce over whole wheat pasta or a dip for fresh veggies. It is so fresh and bright, and packed with […]

Family Recipe: Halsted Street Spaghetti

My Grandma C wrote down this recipe in 2010 (so says the notecard). I’m writing down the recipe as is…. but would probably use mozzarella cheese instead of american for this 🙂  Definitely more of an American recipe than an Italian one too. Given the name Halsted St, this is from Chicago… but not sure […]

Family Recipe: Watercress Soup

This came from the good ol’ Aunt Ruth’s cookbook, which are also recipes from my family supper club Murphy’s I believe. I loooove watercress in soups (mostly miso!) but this recipe is a keeper because watercress is the star. Also, when the recipe calls for whipped cream, I’m going with sour cream for the below.  […]

Soupe Au Pistou

Probably one of the best soups I’ve ever made!  A French summer harvest soup featuring fresh picked zucchini, green beans, and tomatoes! And also features basil (which we grow a lot of!) in the pistou/pesto. We always have dried beans around too, so this recipe is great because it utilizes a few different kinds. Excellent […]

Easy 5-Ingredient Baba Ganoush

I first made this recipe for a Mediterranean potluck my roommates and I threw.  For this adaptation of the recipe I added way more garlic because we looove garlic over here.  So good with pita or veggies, on a falafel, or just by itself.
