The Best of 2013
Almond Sweet Potato Chickpea and Greens Soup. A healthy protein rich soup, this is quite timely if you're doing any sort of January detox or diet. Posted in January of 2013, I suspect that exactly what I was doing at that time.
Quinoa Brownies. Very rich, not too sweet but gluten free, I can see how they would catch a lot of attention. Every food trend list I read claims gluten free is still going strong, so I suppose this supports that idea. A sweet memory from my CSA veggie pick up, I can't wait to try Karen's version of these again.
Fennel Blood Orange Pistachio Salad. It's a tasty salad, that goes without saying, but it's very healthy and uses some irregular ingredients. Both millet and blood oranges are not on my usual grocery list and I assumed that was the same for all of you.
Vietnamese Meatball Soup. Created out of circumstance, and a husband who I thought wouldn't eat them. There's nothing authentic about this recipe but it sure does fit the bill when you're looking for a main course soup that's a little different.
Buttercup Squash Tomato Soup. Perhaps it the simplicity of the preparation and very short list of ingredients that caught your eye? Was it the use of a squash that is so often left behind and few recipes exist for? I don't know, but it was far and away the most viewed and most pinned recipe this year. Thanks so much to all who visited this year and can't wait to see what 2014 will bring for us all! Stay tuned for lots more healthy soups, salads and mains; sprinkled with the occassional sweet too.
