we’re cooking today

As you know, I am always looking for ways to live an abundant, healthy and happy lifestyle and love sharing tips and secrets with you along the way.

In today’s video I am sharing something entirely different than I ever have before. 

It’s something I am usually afraid to do…but I am doing it. For you.

With my good friend Heather Pierce. (She is an outstanding cooking coach who helps your body keep up with your business. She is the creator of “Go Feed Yourself“, a digital cooking program coming out in January 2012 that teaches you how to make healthy, tasty meals in less than 20 minutes.)

If you are like me, cooking intimidates you a little. You want to do more of it, but never know what to make. Long lists of ingredients overwhelm you and you wish you could just throw a few things in a pot and viola!!

When you watch this video, you are going to learn JUST that.

Heather is a master at finding a few ingredients that will make a fantastic meal. She takes a peek in my pantry (which was so embarrassing and so not cute…but I am showing you anyway.) and tells me just what I need. 

It’s so fricken easy to make and DELICIOUS you won’t believe it!! 

I am NOT kidding when I say, I have made this recipe about ten times since we shot this video and I normally almost never cook!

Please, if you only watch one thing online today, let it be this.

 Your tummy will thank you. 

Once you watch it, leave a comment on the blog and let me know if you have any other EASY PEASY recipes that you love. (Lord know I need them) Will you try this one at home?

Can’t wait to hear back from ya!

    When I read how you feel about the kitchen & cooking, it was eerily like I wrote that! Since I have children, I do cook more often than not – gotta feed ’em! I really want to get back into the habit of loving the kitchen and cooking healthy meals 🙂 I’ve been taking pictures of my gorgeous end results to keep me motivated.

    Thanks so much for sharing Heather! Loved the video and looking forward to checking out what she’s got on her site.

    OMG! Erin, I just love you! This was great!! It feels good to know that I am not the only one who lives like a bachelor. I think you have about 3 more items in your fridge then I have and you can just substitute the Amstel Light for Blue Moon. Btw…your new cheese grater is sexy!!

    Love this, love you….time to go check out your friends website for some ideas! Rock on gorgeous one!

    I do cook all the time and didn’t know that i could cook Kale and Soba noodles at the same time. Also putting the peas in frozen, another time saver! Not so many dishes to wash is just good for so many reasons. Love this recipe and will try soon. Could one also use an alternative butter like cashew or almond butter if peanuts are not welcomed in your home? I think so!! Thanks!

      I have been throwing the peas in the water in the last so they mix up nice and good.

      And I would venture to say, absolutely on the peanut butter alternatives. Great idea!

      Yes, very little clean up on this one… which is HUGE!

    Great video and recipe, Erin & Heather!! This dish seems very adaptable to a range of veggies or other additions–tofu?? seitan?? yum! I might try it with a little hot sauce or fiery toasted sesame oil to kick it up a notch!

  5. Erin you are such a goof ball and I love it!!! I can’t decide which I liked better the peas joke or the ginger. I have this great recipe.
    20 minutes
    green soup.
    2 potatos, 1 brocoli, spinach 1 box of vegetable broth 1 shallot.
    cut broccoli and separate the flower part from the stalk
    dice the potatoes (cube)
    saute shallots in a little oil
    add box of broth with box of water
    added stalk of broccoli and potatoes when you can put a fork threw them add flower part of broccoli when that softens add spinach and cook for a little while
    if you want you can take the soup and put it in a blender and have a puree or just eat it chunky. I puree half of mine and then eat the rest chunky
    For one person after it’s cook put portions in tupperwares and freeze.
    Add salt to taste. So good and the puree makes people think your a gourmet cook. It is soooo nourishing and yummy perfect for winter
