Kale, White Bean and Sweet Potato Noodle Bake

Is there anything I love more than a one pot meal? Yes. A one pot meal that is so good and so easy that I made it twice in one week and didn’t get bored with it at all. And guess what? This kale, white bean and sweet potato noodle bake is back on the menu this week. I’d even go so far as to say this meal is weekend worthy (it has cheese!!).

A Toast to Toast: Lemon Edamame Avocado + Apricot Gorgonzola

Soooo July has been a crazy month and we’re only about halfway through! I’m in the final stretch of wedding planning (T-minus 70 days) and between work and the big day details, life has been busy (fun-busy, but still busy). So in honor of this crazy month, I’m giving a shoutout to one of my favorite go-to meals for even the busiest of weekdays…TOAST!

Breakfast, lunch, dinner…all perfect occasions for toast. It’s filling, requires no silverware, and can be made in 15 minutes or less. You can prep savory toast for lunch, sweet toast for breakfast, or a combination of both for whatever time of day the mood strikes. In all honesty, when I did this post I ate these toasts for dinner.

White Bean Avocado Baked Burritos

Who doesn’t love a good burrito?

This recipe gives the everyday burrito a major upgrade by baking it and smothering it in avocado tomatillo salsa (my new favorite!)

This recipe can easily become #buzzword #Vegan if you use gluten free tortilla wraps (of course we didn’t.) You could also go the opposite route and kick it up a notch with some cheese, but this recipe has plenty going on flavor-wise and worked out perfectly for us. Hunter was anticipating the baked burrito situation for weeks.

White bean avocado baked burrito, topped with tomatillo avocado salsa, with sautéed sweet potatoes on the side!

The original recipe can be found over at Ceara’s Kitchen. When I saw it, I knew it would be a perfect way to work in a not-so-terrible-for-you Mexican weeknight dinner. Note that I’ve switched the recipe up just a bit, but kept the serving sizes the same (12 burritos!) because this would be such an awesome addition to any and every party you will ever go to.
