Carrot and Sweet Pepper Soup #MeatlessMondays

Carrot and Sweet Pepper Soup #MeatlessMondays

A light all veggie soup. I’m normally not a fan of dill, but in this soup it really works and adds a nice freshness. I used super sweet mini peppers for this soup.

Just plain water lets the veggies shine through.

Slow-cooker: Chickpea and Kale Stew

Several sources of inspiration and circumstances created this this dish this week…. but  most of all, I was inspired by the bunch of kale I bought last week still sitting in my crisper. You could say, if you believed in such things, that a higher power was...
