This salad is so yummy, healthy, inexpensive and easy to make with local ingredients. This is my favorite to make ahead and pack for work week lunches, you can add in salad greens or adapt the recipe with other veggies to use what you have available.

This is a recipe that makes great use of Vermont products and it can be eaten hot or cold. The chickpeas make a great snack. We served this in our student-operated restaurant when our theme was health and wellness. Someone requested more of the chickpeas! Students really enjoyed making and tasting this soup.

Simplify mealtime with vegetables and marinated chicken, roasted to perfection. The great thing about sheet pan suppers is that you don’t really need to prepare anything more for your weeknight meal.
This rich sandwich filling goes great with all kinds of bread. Serve on a fluffy brioche roll, between two slices of hearty rye or tuck into a whole-wheat pita. Looking for a gluten free option? Try lettuce wraps or top your favorite salad with this protein packed punch.
These crispy croutons are a perfect topping to any salad or soup! It is best to use day-old bread to ensure ultimate crunchiness. Any bread works but sourdough or day-old country have great flavor!
Give your day a delicious boost with these high-protein, whole wheat pancakes.
Try this sweet and spicy sweet potato coconut curry soup! Top with crunchy croutons and fresh parsley.
Serve this delicious vegetable stew over cooked couscous or nutty brown rice sprinkled with shredded or flaked Manchego cheese, and a side of garlic green beans. Use fire-roasted instead of plain diced tomatoes for a smoky, outdoor flavor. Substitute raw sunflower seeds for the pine nuts for an even lower cost-per-serving, and use whatever summer squash is most readily available.
For a striking appetizer course, serve a half cup of warm soup in a “rocks” or small juice glass with a quarter of a sandwich balanced. If you wind up with a couple extra mini-sandwiches, those are a great treat for the cook or the kids. Short on time? Make the soup a day ahead, and keep refrigerated until you reheat just before serving.
