Recipe: Smoked Sun-Dried Tomato and Red Lentil Salad

In a moment of panic for a 4th of July party, I didn’t have enough vegetarian options so I had to throw something together.  This was the result and it was one of the biggest hits at the party (second only to pulled pork on ciabatta with red cabbage)!   Smoked Sun-Dried Tomato and Red […]

Recipe: Spicy Plum Salsa

This salsa is great because it’s sweet and very colorful if you choose a variety of colored plums.  It’s can be served as a side salad, dip, or with grilled fish or chicken.   Spicy Plum Salsa Serves 6 6 plums, diced – yellow, red and purple 1 small cucumber, seeded and diced 3-4 dried […]

Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Cucumbers

Take advantage of Kirby cucumbers because they’re now in season.  Often, I would recommend making pickles with these cucumbers, but canning in the heat sounds a little tedious and uncomfortably hot.  Instead, this is a basic quick pickle that will last in your fridge for weeks. Sweet and Spicy Cucumbers Serves 6 6 Kirby cucumbers, […]

Recipe: Minty Fava and Asparagus Salad

This is a spring salad if ever there was one.  The only non-seasonal items in here are from items that don’t grow in this region (lemons, olives).  This spring green salad (emphasis on green) is light and refreshing but a little different than the standard.  It looks creamy but has a light, delicate flavor.  Some […]

Recipe: Pea Shoot and Beech Mushroom Pasta

It’s officially the first day of spring!  We made it through a not-so-brutal winter and hopefully you’re sick and tired of winter veggies because we’re moving on! Grated, in the northeast, we’re not exactly reaping the benefits of our spring harvest (or even getting a glimpse of microgreen peaking above soil) but, nonetheless, we should […]

Recipe: Enoki Miso Soup

Miso is traditionally made by fermenting soybeans with salt and koji-mold; the fermentation results in a paste that can be used in marinades, sauces, salad dressings, soups, desserts, or any other kind of dish you can think of.  Adding miso improves the  flavor profile by adding dimension and meatiness.  The meatiness it creates is called umami, which is now […]

Recipe: Raw Cauliflower Salad

This salad combines a variety of raw but very tasty winter fruits and vegetables into an easy to make, flavorful dish.  The great thing about this salad is that you can pretty much use whatever you have at home to throw this together.  For instance, replacing the red apple with red grapes or dried cranberries […]

Recipe: Bulgur Salad with Pomegranate and Pistachios

Easy winter salads that are filling but pack a good nutrition punch can be repetitive (quinoa with butternut squash, amaranth with acorn squash, etc).  Often though, I just want a quick and easy recipe to make a large amount of food that’ll keep for at least a week and doesn’t have squash.  I’ve tried a […]

Recipe: Warming Winter Salads

I often want a cool, refeshing salad during the summer but in colder months, I want dishes that are just as easy but a little more filling.  Winter salads can be just that – served warm or cold, they’re filling, easy, and packed with antioxidants that will keep you healthy through flu season.  Here are a […]

Recipe: Lemony Brussels Sprouts Slaw

Brussels sprouts are usually thought of as a veggie that needs cooking but they can be very delicious without any heat.  Sometimes I want an easy recipe, that doesn’t require too much “work” aka I want the directions to read: combine ingredients in bowl.  Eat and enjoy.  So, if you’re like me but still want […]
