Ooey, gooey melted cheese tops this smothered chicken and quinoa skillet, based loosely on pollo fundido. We’re currently halfway through the Tabasco Challenge, and I hope everyone is enjoying these recipes as much as I am. I was determined to not end up with five recipes that more or less tasted the same; having […]
White beans give this spicy bacon and scallion dip a luxuriously creamy texture and makes it great substitute for cheese dip. For today’s contribution to the Tabasco 10-Ingredient challenge, I decided to make a recipe that’s a little more traditional than yesterdays roast chicken and farro. This bacon and scallion dip makes an awesome mid-afternoon […]
Nutty farro and crispy chicken thighs pair perfectly with sweet and spicy roast tomatoes. So good, the tomato-hater in your house might even ask for seconds! Are you ready to spice things up? For the next five days, I’ll be sharing some awesome new recipes that I created for the Tabasco 10 Ingredient Challenge. For […]
These Peppers Stuffed with Everything Good (like sausage and gruyere) are a simple and easy weeknight meal everyone will enjoy! Today is the last day of the Pepper Party – and I’m a little sad that it’s over already. I’ve really been enjoying coming up with fun pepper recipes and I love seeing what everyone […]
Yeah, so remember how I said all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a blanket? Apparently it’s not because it’s fall… it’s because I’m sick! Ugh. I have a terrible cold – the worst one I’ve had in years. Three of the last four meals I’ve eaten have been soup. Luckily, I have a big pot of this roasted eggplant and lentil soup in the fridge, so all I have to do is heat it up (which is about all I have the energy for right now).
This soup is just want I need though. It’s rich, earthy, and slightly spicy, with a subtle Middle Eastern flavor from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, and ras el hanout. A dollop of coconut yogurt finishes it off and balances out the spiciness.
I feel like I’ve been posting an overabundance of desserts lately – that was definitely due to a very poorly planned editorial calendar for this month. I have a few more sweets planned for next week but I have some great savory recipes planned for early October. (And I promise, what I have in store for next week is definitely worth it!)
But for today, let’s eat soup. I took a quick facebook poll to see what people wanted me to post next and soup won by a landslide. I love that you all love soup as much as I do! This chicken tortilla soup is one of my new favorites. It’s rich, spicy, and super satisfying.
