But, there are some other really delicious dishes, like: Southwest Quinoa, Mediterranean Quinoa, Superfood Pilaf + more. They are all ready in 4 minutes. Just pop in the microwave, chop some veggies or throw your sauce ingredients in the blender + multi-task while this dinner side is cooking.

I have grown to love cooking. But, I do not love all the dirty pots + pans. Honestly, I often need to clean my stock pot from the night before just so it's ready to make dinner again. I love that the Path of Life microwavable pouches help me have less dirty dishes. Sometimes my dirty pots + pans are my biggest pains. The struggle is real with the dirty dishes in my house day in + day out.

Gluten Free Veggie Burgers

I'm all about simple baking. I'm all about getting more veggies into traditional foods. Here, I'm sharing a fun twist on the veggie burger that's also gluten free. These veggie burgers are perfect on the Canyon Bakehouse gluten free buns.

These veggie burgers are filled with veggies! The best way to go. So, naturally these veggie burgers are soy + gluten free. Both soy + gluten can often lurk in veggie burgers. These burgers are made with both raw veggies + baked veggies. They are warm + toasty, yet crunchy with the fresh veggies.
