Gear Up for Brunch: 3 Pancake Recipes Everyone Will Love

IMAG1837-b

It’s Friday and weekend brunch is already on my mind. I’m thinking pancakes.  They are easy to pull together if you’re half-asleep plus they make the morning feel so decadent. But these are full of whole-grains while still having less sugar than many other breakfast alternatives. You don’t have to break any of your resolutions […]

Get-Well-Quick Chickpea Soup

  You always need a back-up plan in case you feel a little under the weather. This soup is what I’m counting on if I get sick this year. This soup is pretty easy and you can even cut up the veggies the night before and keep in the fridge until the morning. Then wake […]

Roland Foods Week – Kañiwa Veggie Stew

DSC_0084

Today I have a wonderful fall stew for you that’s quick and easy to make. I wanted to use up the last of the late okra and green beans plus a little early sweet potato. This recipe is a perfect seasonal transition. What the heck is Kañiwa? It’s a close relative to quinoa and is […]

Autumn Salad with Hazelnut Balsamic Dressing and Another Roland Foods Giveaway

  It’s day two of Roland Foods Week here at Healthy Slow Cooking! One of the surprises I received from them to try out was some Roland® Hazelnut Oil. The first thing I did was to take off the cap and smell it. It is like a liquid hazelnut. I grew up on pecans so hazelnuts have always […]

I Love Roland Foods Week, the Longhouse Revival and a Giveaway!

  You’ve already seen some of my recipes that feature Roland Foods. One of my favorite jobs is doing recipe development for them and you guys always get to see those recipes here. Last month Roland Foods sponsored part of my trip to upstate New York to Longhouse Revival, so I decided to show my […]

Tri-color Quinoa Taco Filling

Tri-color Quinoa and Greens Taco Filling

This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco […]

Lemon Coconut Pancakes

Lemon coconut pancakes

These cheery pancakes are full of luxurious coconut milk. The whole wheat flour and ground flax seed make them healthier, but they do have fat in them from the coconut milk.  They are a snap to make so you could whip up a batch in no time!

Coconut Hazelnut Spread

Coconut Hazelnut Spread Sweetened with Dates

I used to love Nutella but it’s not vegan-friendly since it contains milk.  I also don’t like that it has vanillin, is full of sugar and palm oil. But there are tons of vegan nutella redos, so I will spare you yet another. Even if nutella-making was out I still had it in my head to […]
