Butternut Squash and Chicken Soup with Quinoa {Gluten-free}

Happy Monday! Apparently I'm on a butternut squash kick lately. What can I say, I love it and I love buying produce that's in season. It often tastes better and is more affordable. This soup reminds me a bit of the classic Chicken and Rice Soup but with a protein-packed scoop of quinoa instead.

Butternut squash can be tricky to cut. I typically slice some off the bottom so it can sit level on the cutting board. Then I peel it with a good quality vegetable peeler. Finally, slice in half lengthwise, scoop out insides and cut into cubes. Sometimes I buy butternut squash already cubed in the produce section if I'm pressed for time. Click here to see my recipe. here for the recipe!

Turkey Butternut Squash Chili {Gluten-free}

I just love butternut squash. It's similar to pumpkin and can easily cross the line between sweet or savory. This chili is made more delicious with the addition of butternut squash. See my note about the easiest way to prepare and store Chipotle in Adobo! It's really inexpensive and easy to add and bumps the smokey flavor way up. Yum! Click here to see my recipe.

Easy Moo Shu Chicken Lettuce Cups

Happy New Year! I'm back after a wonderful break. We traveled out of state to see family and are now back home enjoying some down days before school and work start up again. This recipe is an ode to my high school years. My sister and I used to love to order take-out from a quirky little place and I loved their Moo Shu Chicken! I've reinvented it here and lightened it up with fresh crunchy lettuce cups instead of crepes. Click here to see my recipe. Blessings to you all for a healthy and happy New Year!
