Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai with Tempeh

This recipe takes a while but it's worth it! I don't really like spaghetti squash with just sauce, so I wanted to try something a little different and it worked out really well! This is a great date night, or weeknight recipe, when you have lots of time and want to make something special and delicious! If you don't have any tempeh or don't like tempeh you can easily substitute chicken instead.

“Whatever’s in the Fridge” Thai Coconut Soup

Soup season is almost over, but here is one more for the road. For this recipe you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand! I simply used what I had in the fridge at the time, but cabbage, spinach, peas or even corn would also go well in this recipe. Frozen veggies would work well in this recipe, but just make sure you give them plenty of time to warm up in the soup!

Mushroom Barley Risotto

Like all risottos this one takes some time, but it is well worth it! Barley risotto is much easier to get right than rice risottos, although you can still over stir it, it is more forgiving and less likely to become glue-like in texture. For this recipe I used hulled barley, but if you are using pearl barley you may want to use a little less broth, so when you may want to try it as you go, so you don't overcook it!

Creamy Shrimp Pasta

This creamy shrimp recipe is done using almond milk instead of regular milk. This makes it mostly dairy free, as dairy can be a big trigger for a lot of people. There is still Parmesan cheese in it, but Parmesan cheese is known for being low in lactose and many people with acid reflux disease can eat it with no problems.

Fall Harvest Bowl

This Fall meal is full of healthy and delicious ingredients! Normally my husband shys away from meals without meat in them, but even he really enjoyed this dinner! The dressing really brings it all together for a savory dish.

Herby White Bean Dip

Whenever we have food related events at work, I can really only eat the things that I bring, and this bean dip is perfect for that! The amount in this recipe is meant more for a smaller amount of people, but it can be easily doubled or tripled.
