Coconut Curry Soup with Tofu

Coconut Curry Soup with Tofu

I'm a big fan of soups year round, but when winter comes, I make a big crock pot of soup a couple times a week. I prefer spicer soups, but of spice isn't your thing, you can omit the sriracha. Sambol works nicely here too.

When it comes to the tofu, you have a few choices. You can add it to the soup 5 minutes before serving or bake it. I'm a fan of baking the tofu, personally. The tofu keeps it form better in the soup when it's baked. You could fry it, but frying tofu involves oil, and I like to keep the oil in my soups to a minimum.

Fig Cream with Hazelnuts

Fig Cream with Hazelnuts

This is my suggestion for a healthy "nutella." I have been eating this fig cream on toasted rye bread in the morning with some extra pieces of banana. A perfect and healthy start of the day.

I can imagine that it would go perfect with some pancakes as well. I actually love when my bananas get ripe, because they are a perfect sweetener in bread, cakes and in spreads like this.

Homemade Hot Chocolate

Homemade Hot Chocolate

When making hot cocoa, skip the pre-packaged mixes in your supermarket. They're filled with additives and waaay too much sugar. Here's a great homemade hot chocolate that I whip up whenever the craving strikes.

I like to use all organic ingredients, but organic cocoa powder can be hard to find. I use the Healthworks Organic Cacao Powder. It's unsweetened and full of antioxidants.

You may find 1 Tbsp is too much brown sugar, so you may want to taste it as you go. I find the unsweetened cacao can be a bit bitter, but that may not be an issue for you.

A dash of vanilla and a tiny dash of salt will help enhance the flavour of the cacao, making a more robust flavour profile. For a Mexican twist, I like to add a pinch of chile powder, and a dash of cinnamon.

Roasted Winter Vegetables Over Polenta

Roasted Winter Vegetables Over Polenta

A comforting and hearty meal, this dish can be made with whatever vegetables you have on hand. Root veggies roast well without getting soggy, so I tend to stick to those.

Rye Bread Muffins with Chocolate & Apricots

Rye Bread Muffins with Chocolate & Apricots

Submitted by Julie Karla at Karla's Nordic Kitchen.

When I eat bread, it’s 99 percent of the time rye bread. In Denmark, we are known for our rye bread and we normally eat it for lunch, when making open sandwiches.

Rye is high in fibre and therefore keeps you full for a very long time. When I eat this rye bread muffin in the morning, I am not hungry until late in the afternoon, which makes it perfect for those days, where you are constantly on the go and don’t have time to eat a proper meal sitting down.

For this recipe I used a high quality dark chocolate with a very high percentage of cocoa (80 percent), and I enjoyed them with a layer of almond butter, which is highly recommendable!

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

This soup is so delicious and comforting. You can adjust the cayenne pepper to make the soup more or less spicy. Or if you have a family of mixed tastes, you can let each person add the cayenne pepper to their own bowl.

Vegetarian Stuffing

Vegetarian Stuffing

This is my first Thanksgiving as a vegetarian, so I've learned how to cook vegetarian Thanksgiving dishes this year. This stuffing recipe is delicious. I add the water chestnuts for a nice texture. Salt in this recipe is optional as a lot of vegetable broths have salt.
