Crispy Oven Fried Broccoli

I am a big fan of fried cauliflower, so I thought why not try broccoli as well!  However, I like to make it healthier than frying it in a bunch of oil, so I bake mine instead and it still comes out nice and crispy!  I serve it here with a lemon tahini dipping sauce and it is so delicious!  Not only that, you get your daily fiber and a satisfying snack all in one!

One of my favorite things to enjoy during the cooler months is root vegetables!  They are good for you, and really delicious!  I think they taste the best when roasted, because it brings out all of their sweet flavor.  They make the perfect side dish, and would even be great for Thanksgiving dinner!

Lentil Goulash

I really enjoyed goulash growing up, so I decided to create a healthier plant based version.  I make this often, because it is so hearty and delicious but also healthy thanks to the protein and fiber in the lentils.  I like to use gluten free pasta made of chickpeas as well, so that adds fiber and protein too!
