Leek, Murasaki & Red Potato Soup

A smooth, creamy, and decidedly delicious on the richer side of soup. It’s brimming with flavor and browned slivers of leeks. Serve with a bit of hot sauce for an extra kick or top it off with roasted broccoli florets and croutons for added crunch. Bon Appetit!

Crunchy Crazy Good Cereal

It doesn’t get easier than this for breakfast! A simple blend of whole foods that requires no baking and is ready in minutes. Enjoy it in a bowl, as a topping or as trail mix. Crunch and munch away!

Shredded Spud Crust

Thinly sliced potatoes make a delicious, gluten free pie crust! I topped it off with arugula, figs, pumpkin seeds, Miyoko’s galic herb cashew cheese and olive oil.
