Easy Cabbage Salad

I made you another salad.  This time it’s an Easy Cabbage Salad. I know we are headed into November soon, but it’s still warm here in Texas.  It was actually 90 yesterday!  So salads it is.  This Easy Cabbage Salad is vegan, gluten free and can be made paleo if you omit the edamame.  The tahini dressing is so good!  It would also make a great dip for veggies!  It would also make a great dip for my spring rolls.

We whipped this salad up in no time at all.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.  If you are a lover of all things salad, you may also enjoy this post.  If you avoid soy, you can probably use green peas in place of the edamame.

Do you want a great tasting slow cooker dinner for pennies?  Something with lots of spices for all kinds of flavor?  Well, Slow Cooker Black Bean Chili is it! Some days, in fact many days, it is so nice to be able to drop a mix of ingredients into a crock-pot and be on your way.  In the winter it helps warm the house and in the summer you can put your slow cooker on the patio and dine al fresco.

Squash Cranberry Muffins

Squash Cranberry Muffins are perfect for Fall.  My kids loved them!  The other day I roasted a kabocha squash.   I was going to use it in my Quinoa and Brussel Sprouts dish, but I ended up roasting it too long and it turned to mush.  So I pureed it and decided to use it in these Squash Cranberry Muffins.  My picky kids loved them!  They are super easy to make.  Vegan and gluten free.  I used part sorghum flour for these since I was out of oat flour.  Feel free to use gluten free oat flour as well.  If you enjoy this recipe, you may also enjoy my gluten free butternut squash bread or my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

Squash Cranberry Muffins - My Whole Food Life

I am still trying to use up all the food in my fridge and that is why I added cranberries and also chocolate chips.  You can really add in anything you like.  I know it’s hard to find cranberries that are not sweetened with sugar.  Well I found some at Natural Grocers that were apple sweetened.  I believe Eden Foods also sweetens their cranberries with fruit.
