Roasted Broccoli Steaks and Chickpeas with Yogurt Sauce

Roasted Broccoli Steaks and Chickpeas with yogurt sauce by Alison's AllspiceThis months recipe redux theme was to create a gut-healthy meal.  When I think of gut health, I think of two things: fiber and probiotics.  I made roasted broccoli steaks and chickpeas with yogurt sauce.  Yogurt is my favorite food-based probiotic, and it makes a delicious, creamy sauce.  I choose broccoli and chickpeas because they have two different types of fiber that are both great for gut health- more on this later.  Finally, to make it a full meal, I plated the roasted broccoli and chickpeas over barley!

Tempeh Gyro Tacos with Cucumber Salsa

Tempeh Gyro Tacos with Cucumber Salsa by Alison's AllspiceIt’s official, I’m obsessed with all things gyro!  I absolutely love the explosion of flavors, especially the tzatziki.  I remember the first gyro I ever had at a sandwich shop in college.  The sandwich maker asked if I wanted to add the tzatziki, and I didn’t know what it was at the time.  He explained that it’s a creamy sauce that you will either love or hate.  Well,  I loved it, needless to say.  My husband loves tacos, so these tempeh gyro tacos with cucumber salsa were a success!

Tzatziki Cucumber Dill Crackers

Tzatziki Cucumber Dill Crackers by Alison's AllspiceDisclosure: I received free samples of Breton Crackers mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Breton Crackers and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

This week I have been having a lot of fun playing around with cracker toppings.  Bite size food has to be able to impress in that single bite, so you know the flavors have to be good.  Therefore, sampling all those flavors, such as my Banh Mi Crackers, has been a lot of fun, and delicious.  The Breton Crackers that I received samples of have been great.  I received the original flavor, which is quite tasty, and really  enjoy their light and crisp texture.  The size of the cracker is large enough to top with lots of veggies and smear with sauces, such as my Tzatziki Cucumber Dill Crackers.

Spiced Pumpkin Lentil Soup

spiced pumpkin lentil soupToday we are going to talk about soup.  I despised soup as a young adult.  Afterall, it came out of a can.  When I started to make my own homemade soups, I realized that canned soup did not compare at all in flavor and texture.  Homemade soup is a really easy meal to make as well.  I enjoy eating soups over fall and winter the most because they help to warm you up.  This spiced pumpkin lentil soup is especially warming and filling.

Tempeh Gyros with Cucumber Tzatziki

Tempeh Gyros with TzatzikiWhen I first started trying meatless meals, I loved tofu, and disliked tempeh.  There are lots of folks out there that don’t like tofu, but I wasn’t never one of them.  Tempeh has taken some time for me to figure out how to prepare properly.  Tempeh is a fermented soybean cake that has a unique flavor, unlike tofu which must be flavored.    The nutty flavor of tempeh works well in these tempeh gyros with cucumber tzatziki.  This recipes has completely changed my mind on tempeh!
