Recipe: Creamy Chickpea Salad

I just realized this recipe is not on our blog and I simply can’t believe it being that it is the recipe that I have literally prepared the most times for Nourish Northwest corporate cooking demos and given out to clients in meal plans. It is also the recipe that my clients cook the most often. Why??? Mostly because it is so delicious but it is also balanced, filling and easy to batch cook for a week’s worth of lunches. I’m not exaggerting when I say that everyone who has had this salad loves it!

While I am resposible for introducing this salad to thousands of people, I cannot take credit for creating it. It is adapted from The Perfect Protein Salad from the deli at Seattle’s PCC Markets. When I lived in Seattle during grad school, this was a very common meal of mine. We adapted it to make it vegan, gluten free and just a little simpler to prepare. Enjoy! I just KNOW you will love this one!

Recipe: Creamy Pumpkin Marinara

I am all for the pumpkin craze that happens every fall. In fact, I use pumpkin year round in things like quesadillas, muffins and waffles for the kids. It’s so nutritious and easy to use. I had to share this recipe we made for dinner last night because it was such a creative way to utilize the vegetable. Although it has a touch a cinnamon and a dash of maple, it’s very savory. It’s time to cosy up and enjoy a bowl of pasta with creamy pumpkin marinara! Recipe adapted from cookieandkate.com.

Recipe: Roasted Squash Cornbread

I make this recipe on repeat in the fall and it is such a hit with both my family and clients. You can use any winter squash, pumpkin or even sweet potato that you have on hand. I’ve made it with delicata, butternut and pumpkin and loved the subtle flavor differences in each one. This is the perfect accompaniment to any soup or stew. Enjoy!
