Sriracha Ramen Soup with Bok Choy and Shiitake Mushrooms

Roasted Chickpeas and Edamame

Roasted Chickpeas and Edamame

Introducing my current favorite snack… roasted chickpeas and edamame. Loaded with protein and so super easy to throw together. I usually like to keep it simple and only season with salt and pepper but you could absolutely customize with all sorts of seasonings. Chili powder, curry, garlic […]
