Mini Meatloaf Muffins

Mini Meatloaf Muffins

Can you tell Edith helped name this one? Really she called them meat muffins, but I feeeeeeel like that didn’t have the best ring to it.

These mini meatloaf muffins are perfectly packable for workday lunches and reheat beautifully. Pair them with a fresh green salad or some roasted green beans and you’ll be a happy camper.

Instant Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup

Instant Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup

This instant pot chicken soup recipe is our go to when anyone in our house is feeling under the weather. It's loaded with ginger, turmeric, nutritional yeast, lots of veggies and nourishing broth. It's a meal in a bowl! It's also toddler approved (Edith demolishes this soup at least twice a month). 

Roasted Balsamic Radishes

Roasted Balsamic Radishes

Radishes take on a whole new flavor when roasted. Their peppery kick transforms into a mildly sweet and mellow flavor and their texture is more akin to a roasted potato, crispy on the outside with a soft inside. This makes them a delightful option for those who may not do well with potatoes, but still want that traditional eggs & potatoes breakfast vibe. 

Roasted Tomato Soup

Roasted Tomato Soup

Okay I wrote out a big long ramble intro, but I know you're just here for the recipe, so I'll get right to it. But first, join me in shaking my fist at the person who thought it was a good idea to add wheat, sugar, and dairy to most canned tomato soups. WHYYYYY.

I've been playing with this recipe for the better part of a year and I think I finally got it. 

If you're avoiding sugars, this soup meets both the WHOLE30 and 21DSD parameters (and is thusly paleo, primal, etc.) It's also just real tasty and equally simple to make. So high-five on that.
