The weather is still cold and gloomy here in Nashville, and all I wanted for lunch today was tomato soup and grilled cheese. So, that’s what I ate…well, sort of.

We have a box of Trader Joe’s tomato soup, but it contains added sugar, and since I gave up sugar for Lent, I decided to make tomato soup Chocolate Covered Katie style by heating up a can of the following on the stove-top and topping it with nutritional yeast and fresh ground black pepper.

Now, what to do about that grilled cheese? Chris and I rarely buy bread. Occasionally, I’ll get a craving, buy a loaf, eat a few pieces, stick it in the freezer, and then end up throwing it out months later. We’re just not big bread people, and so when my body wants a little bready goodness, I’ll often just make my own. Today, I made Nadia’s teff bread with the addition of 1 TBSP nutritional yeast, a pinch of onion powder, and a pinch of garlic powder, I cooked the bread in a ghee greased skillet over medium high heat, flipping once. My bread toppings of choice were a big smear of Kerrygold butter and nutritional yeast.

Kerrygold butter makes everything 100x’s more amazing.

Dipping action…

I’m researching ways to make my recipes printer-friendly, and I’m trying out RECIpage. I like the layout, but before I upload all my recipes and pay for the service, I would love your input. You can click here for my current recipe page and here for my new RECIpage (keep in mind I’ve only added a few recipes). Which do you prefer? With the RECIpage, you can Tweet, Like on Facebook, and print the recipes. You can also sort through them alphabetically or by category. What do you think?
