Simple Vegetable Noodle Soup

Only 3 ingredients in 1 pot. Makes a Full meal.

Quick Chinese Noodle Soup

Three ingredients in a pot. Easiest meal ever & my choice when I have a cold/flu.

CharityCyclist's 'Cream' of Potato & Onion Soup

Blending some of the potatoes gives this soup a heartier texture & creamy appearance without any added cream/dairy. A good slow cooker recipe too.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus ala Coach Nicole's version

I added some roasted red peppers to Coach Nicole's very good hummus recipe. The red peppers are very 'wet' so thinned the hummus quite a bit so I had to add more chickpeas just to thicken it up. Next time, I might omit the water. The peppers give a nice sweet flavor to the hummus.
Also, I start with beans that I've soaked overnight & cooked. You could get a slightly smoother texture if you had the fortitude to 'skin' the chickpeas. If you cook them from their raw state, this will become clear.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew with Cumin & Coriander

The cumin & coriander give this stew a South East Asian flavor that I love. As with any slow cooker recipe, throw everything in the pot, turn it on & leave it alone.

Flaxseed, Wheat & Bran Muffins variation

This is a variation on KIMBERK24's recipe using Almond Milk & less sugar. This recipe is higher in calories due to larger muffins~only 16 to KIMBERK24's 24.

Beef Pot Roast with Tomatoes

4 simple ingredients make this an easy do ahead meal. The small roast size means you can even make it for dinner when you get home from your day.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

6 ingredients make this an easy meal to make, especially with a slow cooker.
