It’s Memorial Day Weekend!

First of all I want to thank every person who has or is serving our Country! Thank you to all the veterans and military families as well! There are no words to truly thank you for your sacrifice to serve and protect our Country.

Roasted Red Pepper Spread

If you’re looking for an easy and delicious recipe this weekend, you will love my Roasted Red Pepper Spread. It’s colorful, flavorful and contains a secret ingredient… cashews! Cashews add protein, healthy fat and fiber to keep you feeling full and satisfied. Consuming adequate fiber also helps manage and stabilize blood sugar and energy levels. For health conscious foodies, this spread is gluten-free, vegan and delicious! You can easily make this recipe completely gluten-free by serving with gluten-free bread or crackers.

Happy Thursday HGG Community!

A few weeks ago I shared how to make my Chickpea of the Sea Salad Sandwich recipe and it was such a hit! I loved seeing all of your sandwich pictures on Instagram and Facebook and some of you even gave this recipe a twist with your own variations that looked delicious!  This is one of my absolute favorite sandwich recipes and I love that you love it too! I was then inspired to create another version of this recipe using simple, healthy ingredients.

In today’s cooking video and blog post I am sharing how to make an Avocado Chickpea Sandwich also known as a “Cranberry Walnut Chickpea Salad Sandwich”. Whatever you prefer to call it, it’s delicious!
