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.

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!
