Want to know my secret to simple cooking? Use as few ingredients as possible! Sometimes I make a game of it: challenging myself to "dumb down" a recipe to the very core basics without compromising flavor or nutrition.
Actually, I always try to increase the nutrition profile of any meal, mainly by using wholesome equivalents of the ingredients or often smart substitutions. It's more art than science to me, but I am a geek when it comes to that:)
So here is my simple ZUCCHINI-YELLOW SQUASH CREAM SOUP recipe that uses nothing but 3 types of vegetables, bone broth and raw cashews.
Yes, you read it right, cashews. If you are trying to reduce or eliminate dairy in your diet, cashews are an amazing substitute to thicken soups or stews AND at the same time add healthy fats and protein to your meals!
That is what I call SMART substitution! And I will show you how to do that.
