Daikon Radish & Asparagus Soup

Daikon Radish & Asparagus SoupThis simple and quick soup is fantastic for cleansing the kidneys and the urinary tract. Daikon Radish is anti-inflammatory, high in Vitamin C and is a powerful aid in bone health (among many other benefits). Asparagus is packed with nutrients and antioxidants.  The combination of these two powerful ingredients is the perfect recipe for a healthy digestive system in both adults and kids.

Split Pea Soup (Slow Cooker Method)

Split Pea Soup (Slow Cooker Method)My grandmother makes the most incredible split pea soup.  After various attempts at recreating it using her recipe I was never quite as successful.  My attempts seemed to lack that wow factor.  I love using my slow cooker to slowly develop flavors in my dishes.  I decided to try making this classic soup using the slow cooking method.  The results were nothing short of fantastic. While it’s still not quite the way grandma makes it, this soup is packed with flavor and depth.  Toddler approved – bonus points!

Crunchy Quinoa Granola

Crunchy Quinoa GranolaI never knew just how good granola can taste until I finally decided to try making it at home on my own.  Clearly I’ve been missing out on the goodness of picking own ingredients and controlling the sweetness levels.  After a few experimentations I finally came up with my favorite recipe containing just about every seed and nut one can think of.  Quinoa adds a great “health” factor and the crunch that I love.

The beauty is truly in the simplicity of this recipe and the overall method.  Combine all the nuts and seeds, stir in the sweetener and bake for 1 hour.  While baking your kitchen will be filled with the most divine smell!  I cannot say enough good things about just how great this tastes.  I enjoy this treat as a cereal with raw milk and also as an addition to my homemade yogurt.
