Warm Greens Salad

Spinach (or other greens)
Grain of some sort
Hot peppers (if you like)
Whatever else you want to add....

Cook your grain of choice. Saute onions, peppers, tomatoes and any other veggies you are adding. 

Prepare a pile of spinach (or other greens) on your plate. Add sauteed vegetables. Then add cheese of your choosing— we’re really into feta, but really anything will do. 

Optional: prepare a simple dressing to go on top. Or just enjoy with salt and pepper and other fresh herbs- thyme, oregano, sage... it’s so versatile and delicious! 

Kale Squash Soup

Feel free to beef up the ingredients. Just about any fall vegetable would be good in this soup.

Squash, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
Onion, chopped
Some sort of grain – barley, rice, pasta, etc
Stock – enough to cover all ingredients and cook grains
Kale, destemmed and coarsely chopped Thyme

Toss squash with olive oil and salt. Roast in a hot oven until just tender. Cook onions in a stock pot until just translucent, add broth and grains. Boil until grains are cooked. Add remaining ingredients, season to taste, simmer for 15 -20 minutes. Serve!
