Cabbage Miso Soup

This miso soup is fantastic for a cold winters day! Because of all the ingredients it can get pretty salty, so make sure you use reduced or low sodium broth! This recipe can also be easily made vegetarian by swapping out the chicken broth for vegetable broth and leaving out the fish sauce.

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!

Tuna Melt

This is an easy lunch for a weekend! I'll admit it isn't the healthiest thing I could eat, but it's a nice go to when I don't know what to eat, as I tend to have all the ingredients for it. It can also be browned in a skillet for a more even browning, but I personally like it done on my portable electric grill.

Orecchiette with Autumn Vegetables and Turkey

Butternut squash is probably my favorite Fall vegetable, it is so versatile and can be added to lots of dishes. The chewiness of the orecchiette pasta and kale goes great with the softness of a cooked squash, and the Parmesan cheese on top really completes the dish. It makes it a perfect meal for a cool Autumn day!

Pesto and Feta Chicken Sandwich

Working from home? If so this sandwich makes a quick and delicious lunch. It takes about 15 minutes in total, or you can cook up multiple breasts and eat the leftovers for lunch! This sandwich also goes great with some avocado on it or fresh tomatoes, if you can have those!

Dairy-Free Chicken and Mushroom Curry

It's starting to cool down a bit where I live, and curry is the perfect warm food to cook in the evenings. Although I call this recipe a curry, it uses the "curry" spice mix, which is linked below, that doesn't actually contain any curry. I find that the spice curry itself not only causes issue with myself, but with many people with GERD or LPR.
