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!

Fall The Way

By Gina Caputo

Fall The Way
Once apples come in season, wild horses couldn't drag me away from them. So begins my Fall One Bowl Wonder season with something that looks a little like this healthy and high in protein bowl that is easily made vegan! I'm low key obsessed with meals that include all 6 Ayurvedic flavors: astringent, spicy, bitter, sour, sweet, salty. This one ticks all the boxes!

Summer BBQ Bowl

By Gina Caputo

Summer BBQ Bowl
The New York Times recently posted a grilled potato salad recipe that inspired me to create an entire BBQ meal (minus the watermelon for dessert) as a One Bowl Wonder. BBQ, corn and potato salad all in one! This may not be the prettiest OBW I've ever made but it is definitely one of the tastiest, especially if you love BBQ sauce like I do. Can easily be made vegan!

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce

By Gina Caputo

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce
Chimichurri is a bright, punchy, herbaceous sauce with roots in South America and it goes well with just about EVERYTHING. I especially love it for summer when herbs are abundant and it's too hot to cook inside so everything gets grilled. While your veggies or meats are grilling, whip this up and serve it right alongside. It makes everything taste like a summer party!

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.

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad

By Gina Caputo

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad
When asparagus is in season, this salad is a MUST. The bitter of the arugula goes so spectacularly with asparagus and the lemon makes every ingredient in here pop. Shrimp is a super easy protein to prepare, is amazing with avocado and has a lot of bang for its buck. Vegan friends can use a can of rinsed garbanzo beans and it’s an amazing, hearty salad for all!

Can't Beet It

By Gina Caputo

Can't Beet It
This is a riff on a favorite recipe of mine that I make every week. Sometimes I change up the legume or the greens, other times I change up the grain. This version uses barley, a high-fiber (with decent protein!) grain that is most commonly used in soups but has a nutty flavor that makes it amazing in salads. These salads feel like "shoulder season" salads to me, where I'm ready to move out of the heavier foods of winter but not quite ready for the light salads of summer.

Pesto with Super Greens

By Gina Caputo

Pesto with Super Greens
Pesto has been a family fave for decades but two ways I've kicked it up over the years are the addition of lemon juice which adds a bright and welcome sour kick to the salty, herbacious pesto, giving it a little more lightness and the addition of a Hulk sized portion of super greens to kick up the vitamin profile of pesto!
