Vegetable addiction? Oh yeah, it is real.
Why is it, during the coldest days of the year when there is absolutely no produce, all I crave are vegetables? Does this happen to anyone else? Or maybe it is just because my favorites are the ones in seaason this time of year and I'm ready to roast everything and go to town.
I'm looking at you butternut and Brussels.
Would you believe if I told you I've seen $12 bowls of oatmeal?
It is crazy to me how the childhood breakfast I knew and loved so much has become such a trendy thing. People are putting all types of crazy things on their oats and charging insane amounts for trendy bowls. When I was in Copenhagen, I had some AMAZING porridge. There were so many options to top it with, that I got overwhelmed just selected a couple. Porridge was everywhere and topped with everything. My mind has been opened to toppings I had never seen before. Caramel sauce! Tehina! Marshmallows!
Is there a way I can go ham on the toppings and not drive myself insane? Because, knowing me, I would probably add everything.
I know what you're thinking: really, Sarah, ANOTHER soup recipe?
And to that I say YES! REALLY! Soup is something I wait all year for. It is honestly one of my favorite meals in the winter. Soup and bread and a little green salad is basically all I want on a cold winter night.
Throw in some long johns and I am set. Aren't I super fun?
My goal: To get you to have your coziest November EVER
Ok, ok, December too... My two favorite months because they have all my favorite foods. I spent Monday playing all the usual head games with myself. I mean, there are just not enough days in the next month and half to make all the recipes I want to make…soo many good recipes – both sweet and savory! I couldn’t choose which ones would be best so I went back and forth, back and forth, UGH.
And then I just settled on eating a butternut squash for dinner (which is never a bad choice!)
Oh hey, look, another chickpea recipe!
Now this recipe does not exactly scream fall, but that is ok! I know for a lot of you, fall means apple everything. Also winter squash everything. Also pumpkin spice everything. And pumpkin spice, while not exactly my favorite, I found out is particularly good on top of pumpkin seeds (a la Trader Joes).
Seriously how meta is that?
