Sunbutter Curry Veggies over Wild Rice

I’ve been a little obsessed with nut/seed butters in everything lately.

Next on the list of…

Acorn Squash “Ribs” and Rosemary Cauliflower Mash

While I can certainly appreciate the standard meat and potatoes, it’s nice to have a lighter option in the heat of Summer! My go-to food mantra lately is just “eat to feel good” and more often than not, that looks like dressed up, Farmers Market veggies. This recipe pairing has been a hit with meat and veg eaters alike and has all the flavor of the…
