Three Sisters Succotash

Corn Corn, beans and squash are the principal foods of many Native American tribes. They’re called “the three sisters” because they support one another as they grow. The corn grows tall, allowing the bean vine to twine around her stalk. The bean fixes the nitrogen in the soil, and the squash has big leaves that hold in moisture.

Canyon Ranch White Bean Soup with Pesto

Canyon Ranch White Bean Soup with Pesto Both the bean soup and the pesto in this recipe can be served separately. The soup is good served cold with chopped leftover vegetables added to it and the pesto is a wonderful sauce for pasta. This simple faux pesto sauce has fewer ingredients than the recipe for Pesto Sauce in Canyon Ranch cookbooks, which also contains Miso and pine nuts. It can be served for vegan-vegetarian menus at Canyon Ranch because it does not contain cheese.
