Chickpea Cakes with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce ♥

Oh people, if you're looking for a weeknight-easy veggie burger, this recipe belongs on the top of your make-now list. I call them Chickpea Cakes (this word dancer does love alliteration ...) but really, you might call them chickpea patties or even chickpea burgers. What is the difference between a "cake" and a "pattie" and a "burger"? Nothing but semantics so never mind, just grab a can of chickpeas and supper is 30 minutes away. Serve these moist, nubbly patties with a little Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce aka tzatziki on the side. These are great!

Carrot & Fruit Oatmeal Slump ♥

A simple, satisfying breakfast, a takeoff on the wonderful Swiss Muesli I fell in love with in Switzerland. "Oatmeal Slump" or just "Slump" are silly family names for bowls of make-ahead oatmeal soaked until soft with fresh orange juice plus pineapple and carrot. Think bowls of morning sunshine!

Spinach Brownies ♥

Is your head spinning? LOL that was my first reaction too! But the concept is not only healthy but simple: just fresh or frozen spinach baked in squares, muffins or tarts, bound by egg, yogurt and cheese and the flour and baking powder found in everyone's favorite chocolate brownies. For anyone who flies out the door with a breakfast bar, instead tuck one of these in your pocket. For anyone looking for a healthy grab 'n' go breakfast, Spinach Brownies are a tasty choice. Or how about healthy bite-size appetizers for an upcoming party? Or just a warm, savory spinach muffin? Spinach Brownies are all these and more.

Quinoa Salad with Zucchini & Lemon ♥ Recipe

An adaptable salad, either lots of zucchini tossed with chunks of crisp-sautéed zucchini or, my favorite, that same crisp-sautéed zucchini tossed with some quinoa for texture contrast and a little protein. Either way, this salad is light and bright and one to make over and over again with other vegetables, seasonal or what's on hand.
