Carrot, Fennel and Orange Soup (AIP, SCD)

The alternate name for this carrot, fennel, and orange soup is “Sunshine in a Bowl,” not only because it has the bright vibrant color of sun, but because it is absolutely packed with nutrients that will perk you right up… even on a cold and dreary January

Roasted Turnip Hummus (AIP)

This roasted turnip hummus is for everyone who has looked at a couple big turnips in their CSA box and thought they looked about as appealing as a couple of big rocks. Or for anyone who wants to sneak more vegetables and more diversity of vegetables into

Broccoli and Butternut Squash Soup (AIP, SCD)

If your favorite way to eat broccoli is smothered in cheese sauce, then this recipe is for you! It is dairy free, but is a pretty good AIP-friendly representation of the cheddar broccoli soup… though much more nutrient dense. The yellow color comes from vitamin A rich

Lemongrass & Ginger Daikon Radish Salad (AIP, SCD)

Classic Sweet Pickle Relish (AIP, SCD)

The alternate title to this post should be “What to do when you grow way too many pickling cucumbers in your urban garden and don’t want any more pickles!” I’ve made dill pickles, sweet pickles, spicy pickles, fermented pickles, refrigerated pickles, and canned pickles… and quite honestly,

Quick Pickled Carrots (AIP, SCD)

Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Herb Sauce (AIP, SCD)
