I owe this one to my husband, who turned out to be a total whiz at using up all of our marketshare veggies. He used only sweet potatoes and carrots the first time he made this soup, but the second time we were inundated with butternut squash, so that went in, too. It seems to work well both ways!

3-Step Roasted Red Pepper Dip
Do you like red bell peppers? Do you have said peppers in your kitchen right now? GO FORTH AND DIP!
So good it deserves a definite article. Also, so easy! Based on Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi’s recipe (but much faster), it’s sure to become your go-to dip and spread.
Baked Black Bean and Corn Fritters with Spicy Sour Cream Dip
These fritters are baked, not fried, and inspired by my new-found love of Southwest-inspired cooking. This recipe takes a bit of time, but is well worth it. It yields 20-25 fritters–perfect for a party snack!
Sundried Tomato Paste
This sundried tomato paste is creamy, savory, and easy to make. It’s great on salmon, eggs, toasted bread, and anything where spreadable cheeses are involved. Why buy it at the store when you can make it at home in a few minutes?
Another recipe inspired by quickly expiring produce from my friend’s market share! In this case the basil I received had begun to oxidize, so I wanted to use it before it went completely dark and limp. I also used some basil from the plant I am growing on my window sill. I really do not like pignoli (pine nuts), so I decided to make my pesto with almonds, but you can use pignoli and follow the same basic recipe if you’d like.
This super breakfast smoothie is one of my favorite grab-and-go foods. Good and good for you!
