Have you been baking up a storm in preparation for Christmas? I have! It’s been a maelstrom of grain-free flours and preheating to 350, and taste testing to my heart’s delight. This coming week, I’ll be posting three holiday-inspired cookie recipes, so stay tuned!
On this week’s healthy vegetarian meal plan, we have Balsamic Dijon Tempeh Buddha Bowls, Smoky Pumpkin Black Bean Chili, Roasted Winter Vegetable Bowls with Nutmeg Tahini, Sweet Potato Lentil Tortilla Soup, and Curried Chickpea Salad. Enjoy your weekend and your meal prep!
