An unfathomably underused ingredient, pearl barley, is a wonderfully versatile inclusion to any meal. Cheap as chips with a magnificently meaty texture, it surprises me that many people don’t eat it more often. Not only does it bulk out any casserole but it also lends a chewiness that many might feel lacking in a vegan version. Personally, I can’t think of a better, healthy, wholesome addition. That awesome texture and nutty taste will certainly ensure this Meatless Monday meal is the most sought after one of the week. Read More

We will all tuck inside a little more and crave warmer foods. Chili, stews, and casseroles start to replace summer salads and typical “picnic” foods.

The cinnamon gives it an earthy fall flavor, but the lime kicks it back into the sunny season we all love. I prefer it to regular potato salad because sweet potato can be more flavorful and dimensional, as well as healthier because of its fiber content.
