  • Creamy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup with Crispy (buttery) Mushrooms. All the things you love about chicken soup but with the addition of an extra creamy broth, soft pillowy gnocchi, and even some garlicky mushrooms too. So, it's better. And? It’s the easiest dinner. Just throw everything into the slow cooker (instant pot OR make on the stove) and done. It's creamy + herby + a little cheesy. And then gnocchi + mushrooms!?! SO GOOD. Grab the full recipe in Half Baked Harvest Super Simple. Link in profile 🖤 do I make this on stories? #hbhsupersimple #instantpot #soup
  • Chipotle Tortilla and Rice Soup made plant-based with @fieldroast Plant-Based Mexican Sausage. #ad So. Much. Flavor. We love this soup. The sausage brings a  spicy, smoky flavor plus it’s super simple to make. The toppings finish it off  plenty of tortilla chips, cheese, avocado, dollop of yogurt, cilantro…all the (very good) things. … … 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 sweet onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated 2 teaspoons cumin kosher salt and pepper 2 Field Roast Plant-Based Chipotle Sausages, sliced 3 cups red enchilada sauce 3-4 cups vegetable broth 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped 1-2 cup cooked rice … Cook together the olive oil and onion, garlic, cumin, and a pinch each of salt and pepper until the onion is soft and fragrant. Add the Field Roast Plant-Based Chipotle Sausages, cook until browned, 1-2 minutes. Stir in the enchilada sauce and broth. Simmer over medium heat until warmed through, about 10-15 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Spoon the rice into bowls and ladle the soup overtop. Top each bowl as desired with tortilla chips, avocado, cheese, yogurt, cilantro + lime juice.
  • Persian inspired Herb and Beef Stew with Rice. Because it's very much stew weather and I love a cozy weekend dinner. This stew isn't your average stew. It's different and it's VERY GOOD. It's lemony, spiced with turmeric, heavy on the herbs, served over rice, and it's even made in all ONE POT. Very into it. Shared the recipe on HBH this week - link in profile. PS. the key word is inspired, not authentic :) #hbhhealthyjanuary #stew #comfortfood
  • Lemon Poppyseed Cake with Citrus Honey Glaze. Know it's January, but I'm still baking cake because when it's single digits and a 3 day weekend, what else do you do?! Enter this extra wintery, made on the healthier side cake. It's light and lemony, swirled with nutty poppy seeds + finished with a sweet citrus honey glaze. Every last crumb is SO GOOD. And? It's EASY + pretty. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. Full how-to is currently on my IG stories too. #hbhhealthyjanuary #cake
