Nashville has had more 'April' weather than 'February' these past couple of days. The trees are blooming, daffodils are popping up EVERYWHERE, and the sun feels warm. Last night I went for a run and heard frogs down by the river's edge. I don't like it. This recipe is an 'Ode to Winter Weather'. The perfect warm, hearty meal to cozy up with during a snowstorm....
Things are hectic right now. It seems like every minute during this season is filled with holiday activities, whether its shopping for Christmas presents, attending Christmas functions, watching Hallmark Christmas movies, or baking Christmas treats! Busy times plus the fact that my diet has recently consisted of pumpkin molasses cookies, espresso shortbread with butterscotch glaze, the bag of potato chips someone left at our house from our Christmas party (I don't even like potato chips but these are just so DELICIOUS), and citrus fruit.
This is why it is KEY to have a couple healthy, easy, quick recipes on hand! Add warm and filling to the list, and here you have the perfect winter dinner!
I love to be sneaky and trick people who usually shy away from anything labeled 'vegetarian' or 'vegan' into eating exactly those kinds of things and then watching their reactions of surprise and delight.
This is a GREAT recipe for that purpose.
