Positively Perfect One Pan Veggie & Sausage Roast

IMG_7680

I found these cute, petite rainbow carrots at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago and knew I wanted to make a veggie roast. The summer I was in Munich, it was quite unseasonably cold and rainy. My friend, Katie (aka Katinka), roasted Bavarian poke sausage, apples and potatoes. This is my take on it: Roasted Rainbow Veggies with Apple Chicken Sausage. The leeks get crispy like Brussels sprouts and the carrots, zucchini and sweet potatoes are tender after the roasting. The dried thyme makes your kitchen smell AWESOME (emphasis on awesome clearly), and the apple sausage is a sweet, savory addition to balance out the garlicky cauliflower mashed potatoes and sweetly cooked veggies. This may be the easy one pan dish and the quintessential fall meal.

Snuggle Up with Some Detox Soup

Giada's Detox Broth

This soup smells heavenly. The fresh ginger, cinnamon, garlic, onion and cloves just have the right amount of flavor to offer. The garlic and ginger offer healthy digestion. The hardest part of this soup is the prep. There’s some chopping involved, but once completed, you literally dump everything into the pot and relax. The broth for this soup is originally from Giada DeLaurentiisGiada’s Feel Good Food. Instead of straining the broth and reserving the liquid, I kept the soup as is, added everything I had on hand but the kitchen sink and enjoyed a piping cup of Giada’s Detox Soup.

The Best Meatless Bolognese

IMG_5901

You have to trust me. This is delicious. Like I-need-seconds-right-now delicious. Like better than any dish served at Matzaluna (Allie knows what I mean). The ingredient list may look a wee bit long and/or intimidating, but this Creamy Vegetable Bolognese is really quite simple. I must admit, I don’t care for mushrooms. It has nothing to do with flavor and everything to do with texture. I just can’t get over that chewiness. By tossing the mushrooms into a food processor with all the other vegetables, you take care of that texture issue. This sauce would be perfect over your favorite pasta (spaghetti squash or zoodles), meat, white fish or even on a crusty piece of bread as an app. I loved it. Another winner from Giada’s Feel Good Food. I can’t wait to make it again, but I think I’ll need a double batch next time . . .
