Well, the holidays are over and if you’re like me, you’re now thinking of ways to shed those extra holiday pounds! Salads are a great way to do just that, but when you live as far north as we do, it’s very likely -20 degrees Celsius and snowing outside, and a cold salad is just not all that appealing. In January, when I’m staring down three or four more months of winter, I want something comforting – something that will warm me up from the inside – and something that will help me recover from my holiday food hangover! This vegetable soup certainly fits the bill. Great with or without beef, it’s hearty, delicious, low calorie, and comforting.
This soup freezes well so make extra and store it for quick lunches or dinners on those busy winter days. If you are like Geoff and prefer something more substantial, this recipe can easily be converted into a quick vegetable or hamburger stew that can be served on a bed of rice.

This soup pairs well with our

Have you been missing coconut shrimp since you went gluten free? These gluten free ones are sweet, salty, and pop-in- your-mouth tastey. And they are easier to make that you might think. Once you get the hang of it, you can throw these together in minutes. They make for great appetizers or party fare, but if you luv ’em as much as we do, you might want to serve them up for dinner with some Jasmine rice and a salad.

This gluten free beef stew makes a hardy savory dinner and any leftovers can be frozen and reheated for busy weeknights. We think that the trick to an excellent stew is a lot of beef flavour – we are from Alberta after all! With a triple hit of beef stew meat, beef stock, and beef bouillon, this recipe fits the bill. Oh, and carrots – for some reason I love carrots in stew. Last year, in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to try making gluten free bread bowls. Our Crusty Bread recipe was just the right size and held up well!

Yes, we said “easy” and “bread” and no, that’s not an oxymoron. Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, this dairy free and gluten free crusty bread – an adaptation of no-knead bread – has a slight sourdough taste and the look and texture of an artisan loaf. It doesn’t keep for more than a few hours so the recipe produces a mini-loaf about the size of four dinner rolls. Scroll down for the recipe.
