Spicy, Garlic-Braised Kale, Carrot and Corn Medley

This little spicy jumble of goodness might appeal to those with an adventurous palate. You can prep everything ahead of time and throw it together in 10 minutes. I added some jalapeno, red peppers and some fun things like ginger and maple syrup. I even added a wee bit of soy sauce, sesame oil and sherry at the end for that lip smacking flavor. Sounds a little wacky, doesn’t it? It might be but it’s deliciously wacky!

You can leave out the jalapeno if the kids don’t like it spicy. This dish is so full of important nutrients for your little guys that you’ll want to include it in your regular meal rotation especially because it takes no time at all. Best of all when you’re in a rush, you could skip the chopping and just use frozen veggies. Keeping a good supply of frozen veggies on hand is a life saver for busy weeknights.

You know I’m a huge fan of soup so when I saw this beautiful recipe in Debbie Adler’s latest cookbook,  Sweet, Savory & Free, I knew I had to make it.

Debbie Adler | Sweet, Savory & Free

All of Debbie’s fabulous recipes are plant based without any of the top 8 food allergens.  Best of all, they are delicious!

Her journey to embrace plant-based recipes has come through personal experience – her son has many food allergies – and she has consequently spent years researching the right foods for him, for her business (Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes) and for her readers.  This book is the result of hard work and dedication to discovering exactly what we need to eat to lead healthy lives.
