Home Comforts

Here are some easy-to-make nutritious foods I’ve enjoyed preparing during my home-bound time. These offerings are meatless. I feel fortunate to have had these ingredients available locally.

Easy Popovers in a regular muffin pan. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/7238/popovers/
Spaghetti and added “zucchini pasta” made with the spiralizer.
Easy no-yeast flat bread.

Beans and rice. Uncle Ben’s Quick-Cooking Rice with black beans, kidney beans and corn.
Vegetable lasagna made with green beans, carrots, celery and mozzarella.
Boiled polenta (cornmeal).
Power Puffs. Lots of protein, no cooking. https://www.lowfodmap.com/low-fodmap-power-poppers-recipe/
Fresh apple sauce made with local apples. Just the apples-no sugar added.
A welcoming and cheerful table can lift your spirits during these isolating times.

  5. Very lovely! I have been on an apple sauce kick lately. I’m using up some dried fruit, so I boil them first then add the apples. So delicious! I also add Chia seeds for some protein, and cinnamon. Now I need to check out your Power Puffs. 😊

    1. Thanks! Me too-the applesauce seems so soothing. The Power Puffs are really good too. I use almond butter instead of peanut butter, though.

      1. I, too, am an almost butter gal. And in a pinch I’ve taken almond butter and water, blend it in the blender, and you have almond milk! I read that somewhere. It actually works pretty good!
