So my new DC friends and I gathered together over the weekend for an amazingly warm and cozy Thanksgiving potluck dinner. We had lime and sriracha brussel sprouts, sweet potato soup, biscuits, corn bread, cranberry sauce, roasted carrots and sweet potato, mashed potatoes, vegan dumplings, stuff mushrooms, brownies, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and spiced cider. And lots of red wine, of course. It was an amazing time and made me realize that I am so thankful that after only living in DC for 6 months that I could have met so many wonderful friends to share this holiday season with! Happy holiday season, everyone! I hope the next several weeks brings you and yours lots of yummy food and cozy nights. ❤

I made this amazingly easy vegan Senegalese Peanut Soup; its got a bit of a kick to warm me up and made me feel so cozy which is exactly what I needed today!  Enjoy!

Kohlrabi, Summer Squash, Zucchini Salad

mms_picture (1)My CSA share was so amazing this week. I’ve been getting a lot of kohlrabi and even though I’ve cooked with it before I usually just end up sauteing it and throwing it into a stir fry or curry. This time I really wanted to face it straight on and makes something delicious that would put it right in the center of the recipe. So here is a really simple kohlrabi, summer squash, and zucchini salad!
