RECIPE | Roasted Roots & Red Lentil Stew

This past weekend we made a trip to the farmers market to do a bit of produce shopping for the week. I was excited to see all of the great Fall produce available and Edith was excited to pick things out and to pay for them herself (with mama and dada’s $). She ended up choosing a small purple top turnip, a rutabaga, two parsnips and a handful of carrots among other things. Since I hadn’t really planned any meals around these roots I decided why not roast them up. I had some red lentils and veggie broth on hand as well and thought it might make a really great stew – spoiler it did!

This stew is great served up with rice, quinoa or just a big hunk of bread. We also served ours up with some steamed broccoli but you could pair it with a green salad or eat it on it’s own. Enjoy!

[RECIPE] Chickpea Scramble for One

[RECIPE] Chickpea Scramble for One | via @runwithtongs
I am for sure a savory breakfast person. I love scrambles, avocado toast, chickpea crepes, tofu rancheros, bagels…basically anything that falls on the savory spectrum. The thing is I don’t always love to have a tofu scramble so instead I have been swapping beans for tofu. In this recipe I used chickpeas because I think they just give a really great texture and give a good bulk to the scramble.
