Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots

When I was younger I used to dread any meal that involved Brussels sprouts. Luckily, times have changed and I now love them! From Brussels sprout chips to grilled Brussels sprouts, I love them all. This recipe is a very simple one and you can add any roasting vegetables you like to the mix. I happened to have carrots and Brussels sprouts at home, so that is what I used. I also sometimes add chopped rosemary or other herbs to this mix.

Grilled Potato Slices

A few years ago I accidentally discovered grilling potatoes. I decided this was a must have on BBQ days. It's so easy to make and falls into the realm of comfort food. Cut your potatoes skinnier to reduced grilling time. I love serving this with a side of chive and garlic sour cream, but any dipping sauce that you love will be great. I've also made a cumin, Greek yogurt and mint dipping sauce in the past. If you think the flavor will taste good with potatoes, then go for it.

Sweet Potato-Chickpea Patties with Sriracha-Yogurt Dip

My mom found this recipe a while back and recommended it. These patties make a great vegetarian dinner option, especially if you're still on board with Meatless Mondays. I tend to eat lighter meals in the evening, so a dish like this is a great choice. The patties are also easy to make. They may seem a little difficult to work with, but once they patties begin to fry they stick together.

Quick and Easy Miso Soup

My friends and I have started a tradition where we have make-your-own sushi night. I tend to host them at my place and I usually have some appetizers ready to go since the sushi rolling process can be time consuming. One thing that I have made for each night is this miso soup. It's so simple and you can flavor it to your liking very easily. When I first made this I couldn't believe how easily it came together. I did have to go to an Asian grocery to find some of the ingredients (like the seaweed and the Japanese style bouillon). Once you have the basic ingredients on hand this soup is very easy make a second time. Enjoy this with some homemade spicy tuna rolls of Japanese style ginger and carrot dressed salad.

Dairy Free Banana Bread

I am a huge fan of banana bread. It's one of those easy to bake, hard to destroy breads that turns out great every time. I am pretty plain when it comes to banana bread. I'd rather have the batter be simple, without any nuts or chocolate chips. But if you love those additions, feel free to add them. This is another recipe which my sister discovered. It's a great baking option for people who don't consume dairy since the moisture comes from the oil instead of butter and/or milk. This bread also lasts for days in an airtight container- but don't expect it to stick around for that long.
