This month’s Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger is being hosted by Zoe from Z’s Cup of Tea.

Zoe and I have become good friends (we share a love of fun nail polish colors and healthy gluten-free baking, oh and Cooks Illustrated). I adopted Zoe last summer and made her Mango Popsicles.

This month I decided to adopt my friend Kim from Your Green Baby. If you’ve been here for a while, you’ll know Kim. She’s shared some really informative guest posts with us. Check them out:

Recently Kim published her first book! It’s an incredible resource for parents of small kids, but also for soon-to-be Moms. The book includes a number of delicious and healthy recipes that will find you and your family eating (and thoroughly enjoying) more whole foods.

I’ve been trying to get more legumes into my kids so I thought Kim would be the perfect adoptee since all of her recipes are vegetarian, and her recipes are tested by her two-year-old son.

The first recipe I tried was Kim’s Chick Pea Stew. What a simple but delicious recipe! And of course it’s naturally gluten-free. Throw everything in one pot and voila, you have a healthy and delicious dinner.

We discovered that Callum loves chick peas. He kept asking for more and more. I was thrilled. He’s always enjoyed a little bit of hummus here and there, but now we have a new snack food! And a power snack food at that.

The second recipe I tried was Kim’s Lentil Sloppy Joes. These were also really easy to make, and so tasty. I made a few changes (I’ve been having trouble with soy lately so I omitted the miso and used coconut aminos instead of tamari). I pureed a cup of the Sloppy Joes and served it with some rice pasta for the kids. Another hit. Yahoo!

Both of these dishes will definitely be making another appearance in our house.

Make sure you take some time to check out Kim’s blog. You can also find Kim on twitter.
