Cauliflower Rice with Roasted Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is probably one of the simplest ways to add a depth of flavor to any dish. Cauliflower rice helps you cut the carbs and the calories usually found in white or brown rice. When seasoned and cooked properly, we think that cauliflower rice is a great substitute. Riced cauliflower is easy to make…

Black Bean Salad with Sweet Potato Tots

Sometimes you just want french fries or a bag of potato chips. This recipe is for one of those days. Sweet potatoes are considerably healthier than potatoes because they have a lower glycemic index.

Summer Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Generally, you don’t think about soup in the summer. But we were craving a good vegetable soup after we reminisced about our recent trip to Iceland.
