Plantain + Corn + Chickpea Soup
.
.
This soup was one of my biggest cooking experiments yet and one of the most rewarding. This cumin spiced bowl had kicks of sweetness (from the corn and plantains), and spicy (from the cumin and sriracha) as well as some citrus (lime juice). I used a hand mixer to purée the corn and green peppers (which I did with a tad of hot water) and then just threw the soup mixture into a pot along with the rest of the corn, plantains, green peppers, and chickpeas. I squeezed some lime juice in and added some cilantro and sriracha to the pot, gave it a stir, then slowly added some oat milk (I personally think coconut milk would have been better, but I didn’t have any). this recipe had definitely made on my favorite recipe list! Give it a try and let me know what you think! The ingredients are below.

Mexican Cauliflower Rice — today’s lunch was made in less than 5 minutes and in one pan, yet had so much flavor and spice that I needed to down a glass of milk (almond) to just finish it!! All of the base ingredients are non perishable items as well so you can buy them in bulk and make variations of this for weeks to come! See below for the recipe.
