White Bean & Kale Soup

By Gina Caputo

White Bean & Kale Soup

Kale yeah! This is SOUPer simple and delicious. I recommend taking the time to soak dried cannelini beans (I order mine online) because I find the canned ones of this particular bean are just mush. And that little blast of lemon juice at the end? Absolutely zingy delicious!

Chicken/Chickpea Salad

By Gina Caputo

Chicken/Chickpea Salad
When I was living in Kansas City, my favorite place to eat was a luncheonette called Happy Gillis. Mismatched s&p shakers, great sandwich bread, epic chocolate chip cookies and the world's greatest chicken salad. I do not consider myself a chicken salad person. At all. But I love to ask what the staff loves and someone recommended this and I've never looked back. It's INCREDIBLE. I included a vegetarian option too!

Soupa Green

By Gina Caputo

Soupa Green
Rainy spring days have me wanting healthy soups. Not the dense soups of Fall but something both warm and bright. Enter SOUPA GREEN! A vegan Spring soup that uses the veggies of the season that just all happen to be green. Note - the peas and the splash of lemon juice MAKE this soup. I add beans for protein and some bite, you could also add a small pasta in this soup if you'd like to make it even heartier.

Walk On The Wild Side

By Gina Caputo

Walk On The Wild Side
Wild rice seems so...rustic. It's hearty and earthy and I don't use it nearly enough. It started there. But the real star of this One Bowl Wonder? THE PEANUT BUTTER-MISO SAUCE. Maybe it's just me but I want this flavor again and again. Next time I'm doubling the amount of sauce so I can put it on other stuff just to see how it holds up. But the pairing of that sauce with sweet potatoes was EPIC.

Summertime Protein Power
While I didn't originally intend to make this a One Bowl Wonder post, it go so much action on Instagram that I'm putting it here after all! It's a kicked up caprese salad that uses chickpea pasta AND chickpeas as well as that inimitable summertime fresh corn. Vegetarian protein at its best!

Remember Your Roots

By Gina Caputo

Remember Your Roots

I'm one of those people that orders the same thing EVERY time at my favorite restaurants. In this case, the Roots, Beans and Greens and Boulder's Tangerine is my go-to. This home version includes asparagus instead of greens for when it is in season and plentiful. Guaranteed to support your groundedness!
