Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Butternut squash soup steps

One of our most commonly made foods lately has been soup. We make at least one large pot a week if not two. Soup is something that I used to be totally intimidated by and didn't know where to start. I have come to realize that they are delicious, really good for you, hard to screw up, and the options are endless in terms of which veggies, meat, and/or spices that you use. This week I have a butternut squash soup recipe for you! Enjoy!

Easy & Delicious Collard Greens Recipe

Collard Greens

This week we are sharing one of our favorite recipes. Jared has been making us a big pot of collard greens every week for the last few months. Leafy greens such as collards, kale, turnip greens, spinach, romaine lettuce, and swiss chard are nutrient power houses! According to the website Worlds Healthiest Foods , Collard Greens help with high LDL cholesterol, cancer prevention, and acute bowel disorder. They are also anti-inflammatory and are great for bone health and brain health! 

How many greens should you eat in a day? I love Dr. Terry Wahls' take on this matter. She is a medical doctor that healed her own multiple sclerosis by changing her diet. She recommends 9 cups of vegetables per day, 3 of which are leafy greens. She believes this is necessary to heal MS, heal other autoimmune diseases, and provide all the nutrition that your body needs. You can eat them raw or cooked, but I recommend cooked, especially if you have digestive issues.

Here is the recipe!

Mexican Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Mexican Breakfast Casserole


  • 12 eggs
  • 1 pound of chorizo sausage
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 2 zucchini, diced (you could also use yellow squash or calabacitas (Mexican squash)
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano (I used Mexican oregano that we had)
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Brown the chorizo sausage in a pan over medium-high heat as you would a breakfast sausage (I smoked the chorizo for 2 hours in my smoker with hickory wood, so I skipped this browning stage).
  3. Add the onion, pepper, garlic, carrots, and zucchini. Add all spices and sauté for several minutes. 
  4. Transfer the sausage and vegetable mixture into an oven safe 9x13 baking dish (I use a glass one that has a plastic snap on lip for storage later). 
  5. In a separate mixing bowl, scramble 12 eggs well (I add in a couple of tablespoons of water, usually 2 or 3, to help with fluffiness). 
  6. Add salt and pepper to the eggs, and pour the scrambled eggs over the sausage and vegetables. Make sure the eggs are spread evenly throughout  
  7. Place the baking dish on the center rack in the oven. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. (Ovens temps vary, if you aren’t sure about yours, check the casserole at 35 minutes,.You can always add more time!)

The casserole is now ready to enjoy!

We make this on Sunday afternoon, and put in the refrigerator. We usually cut the casserole into eighths, and we have breakfast for 4 days for 2 people.

Eggplant Curry Recipe

Eggplant Curry


  • 4 Chinese Eggplants (These are the long thin ones, I try to pick ones that are thin enough to fit into the food processor easily, but you can always cut larger ones in half)
  • 1 White or Yellow Onion,
  • 2 Carrots
  • 8 oz of white mushrooms
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 2 TBSP Curry Powder
  • 1 tsp Ginger Powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • ½ tps ground Nutmeg
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 can of Coconut Milk
  • 1 TBSP of Coconut Oil


  1. Chop the onions. Sometimes I use the food processor to shred them, you can do whichever you like.
  2. Add the Coconut Oil and chopped onions to a large pan over medium-high heat. Sauté for several minutes while getting the eggplant ready.
  3. To prepare the eggplant, cut off both end and put through the food processor with the slicing attachment. This makes quick work of “chopping” the eggplant into thin discs.
  4. Add the eggplant to the pan with the onions along with the minced garlic.
  5. For the carrots, I change the attachment to the shredder and feed them through the food processor.
  6. Add to the pan with the eggplant and onions.
  7. Slice the mushrooms by hand or use the food processor as we did with the eggplant. Add to the pan.
  8. Now add all of the spices and stir to combine.
  9. Add in the can of Coconut Milk and cover and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

It is now time to eat, or transport to a container to place into the fridge.
