Late Summer Frittata with Tomatoes and Fresh Herbs {paleo + vegetarian}

This late summer frittata with tomatoes and fresh herbs has been my go-to egg dish pretty much since it’s been warm enough to wear sandals! Made with good-for-you pasture raised eggs, ripe summer tomatoes, savory caramelized shallots, spinach, and fresh parsley for some seriously delicious flavor – it’s a must try!

There is something so satisfying about a good frittata. First of all, it doesn’t really belong to a specific time of day, making it equally as delicious for breakfast as it is for dinner. Secondly, it’s one of the few things you can usually pull together for a super meal when all you have are some eggs and a few stray veggies (okay and also maybe a little cheese 😉) in the refrigerator.

Pair it with a big green salad for dinner or grab it on your way out the door in the morning and you are 100% doing the whole frittata thing right.

Creamy Dairy Free Parsnip and Chive Soup {paleo + vegan}

Anyone else feel like they’re still unwinding from the holiday? While I love love love spending time with friends and family and sharing good food, it always takes me awhile to get back into the groove of things afterwards. There are some things that have been helping me get back into the flow – exercise, quiet down time for reading or watching favorite movies (currently mid Harry Potter marathon!), and making easy, nourishing meals like this creamy dairy free parsnip and chive soup.


 
A good soup recipe is at the top of the list of my all time favorite things, and favorite ways to warm up. Especially this time of year when every day IS RAIN and I literally need just as many lights on in my house during the day as I do at night.

Not even exaggerating.

These are the days that I dream of spending the winter in someplace warm and tropical.

But for now…

Creamy parsnip and chive soup + twinkle lights + kitty cuddles = things that are keeping me sane.

rainbow coconut curry noodle soup with chicken


dear rainbow coconut curry noodle soup with chicken,

I am totally in love with you.

and when my friends get to know you, I think they’ll love you too.

even though the pictures of you are kind of blurry because it’s february and there is practically ZERO light coming through my window even at high noon. more like dark noon. *grumble grumble*

(exit monologue with rainbow curry noodle soup)

the lighting issue.

it really is getting better as we begin to eek our way out of the short winter days, but it’s been a challenge for sure. I do use artificial lights sometimes but it just doesn’t have that same oomph as really good natural light. I think if you’ve ever played around with a camera you know what I mean.

this past weekend though!? I made a bunch of delicious things and had lots of lovely light pouring in through the windows with which to photograph those delicious things (yay sun!) and I can’t wait to share them with you.

but for now what I really need to do is convince you to make this amazing soup. because it is kind of the best thing EVER and it will totally brighten your day. it’s super satisfying and it has been sitting in my inbox for more than is an appropriate amount of time for something this yummy to sit in my inbox! (sorry not sorry because, here you go!)
