Southwest Black Bean, Corn, Quinoa, & Kale

Southwest Black Bean, Corn, Quinoa, & Kale

This nutrient dense vegan dish is high in protein, high in fiber, and is gluten free. It is also very versatile and can be served warm or cold as a side dish or a main course. Raw kale is an acquired taste for some. The lemon juice in this recipe will help to tenderize the kale, but you can always steam the kale if you prefer a more wilted version. Enjoy!

Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup

As temperatures cool, warm up with some tasty lentil soup. Lentils are a staple of Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine and are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. What I love about most soups is that you can vary the ingredients and amounts to suit your own taste. This lentil soup also freezes very well.
