I don’t know where you live, but in northeastern Ohio where I and most of my family live, the days are getting shorter and cooler, and the nights are sometimes downright chilly. For me, this signals perfect weather for some of my favorite, easy-to-prepare healthy food recipes.
One of my all-time favorites is a healthy, totally vegetarian lentil soup that uses carrots, celery, onion and vegetable stock. But, if you would prefer a non-vegetarian treat, just use beef or chicken stock. Either way it tastes so good on a chilly fall day. Both I and my family absolutely love it.
I really love split pea soup in my gluten-free diet … It’s high-fiber, has no refined sugar and is highly nutritious. And, my husband likes it even more than I do. He thinks that it tastes great and frequently comes back for seconds.
Actually, this is one of my all-time favorite gluten-free soup recipes. It takes only a minute or two to remove the foreign matter from the bag of split peas. It cooks almost on auto pilot.
It makes 6 to 8 servings with a very small time investment.
I love the flavor of napa cabbage. It’s such a pleasant, healthy addition to my gluten-free diet.
It has a problem, though…
…It’s so delicate that it can easily be overwhelmed if it’s combined with the wrong flavors and textures.
We rediscovered chard this summer. We had eaten it before, once every year or two, but I didn’t remember it tasted as good as it has this summer. We’re making up for lost time. I’ve served it every couple of weeks lately.
Need something gluten-free that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg that is delicious and nutritious? You might find that this is right up your alley….

A light, flavorful, yet filling bowl of homemade chicken soup fits a lot of descriptions. It’s nutritious. Comforting. Easy on the waistline. Not so well known is how easy it can be to make. Even gluten-free soup can be quick and easy.
Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.
