The other day my husband bought a bag of apples because they were on sale. It was perfect because I have been wanting to do an apple slaw. I normally make a crock pot applesauce. What better way to enjoy the apple slaw than a lettuce wrap? These lettuce wraps with apple slaw are the perfect healthy dish to kick off the new year with. The tahini dressing really makes this apple slaw stand out. In fact, I use it as a dressing for salads as well. I love lettuce wraps because they fit into every diet. Gluten free, grain free, vegan and raw.
I have been wanting to do a white bean chili for quite some time. Problem is, I wasn’t sure how to make a white bean chili. So naturally, I ask my husband who is the chili expert in the house. He also created the delicious sweet potato chili that is already on the blog. I was very pleased with his recipe for this white bean chili as well. This white bean chili recipe is so simple and it can be made in the crock pot when you are not even home! To me, those are the best kinds of recipes.
For those of you that don’t know, my husband is Turkish. We eat a lot of Turkish inspired meals at our house. Falafel is just one of those. Since traditional falafels are fried, I wanted to make them healthier by doing a baked falafel version.
