Beluga Lentil and Sweet Potato Stew

10 May


I would buy the Green Kitchen app just for this recipe. It was mind-blowing. I didn’t have cardamom which made me a little nervous that the meal would be lacking flavor. To make up for the missing cardamom, I decided to add cinnamon and nutmeg. The result was so good that I may never try it with the cardamom.

This was a really hearty meal. I could definitely see this recipe becoming a fall/winter favorite. Despite being so hearty, it was still really light and didn’t leave me feeling really full.


Keep your eyes out for my review of the app on Monday!

Roasted Garlic Salad Dressing

8 Apr


I was talking to a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago and she asked if I could do a post about salad dressing. She had been looking for a dressing without unknown ingredients and was left without a whole lot of options. So off to the kitchen I went to work on a healthier salad dressing.

Just a word of warning, reduce the amount of garlic if you want a more subtle garlic flavor. I felt like the garlic really developed once I put it in the refrigerator.

1 single serve 2% plain greek yogurt
1 head roasted garlic
1 tbsp honey
9 shakes Italian Seasoning
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 tbsp water or more, as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 400o.
  2. Peel off the outer layers of the garlic and cut about 1/4 inch off the top. Place the garlic on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes.
  3. Once the garlic cools, squeeze the cloves into a blender along with all the ingredients except the water. Blend until well combined.
  4. Add the water and blend until you have your desired consistency.

As always, enjoy!
