Burrata Caprese Salad “Sandwiches” with a Garlic and Chili Inflused Balsamic Reduction

This was a farmers market inspiration that came to me as I was wondering around a little hungover and a lot hungry. Saw the heirloom tomatoes first and was instantly hooked by the visuals. I knew these were destined for my belly. The second thing that popped into my mind was cheese and I headed […]

Chopped Parsley Salad (Grain Free Tabouleh) with Avocado

Got a ton of parsley and don’t know what to do with it? This parsley salad is perfect to put on a sandwich, a wrap, with pita, with crackers or just on it’s own. It’s super fresh tasting and will last in your fridge for about 5 days. You can also adjust the quantities to […]

Simple Kale Almond Pecorino Salad with a Lemon Shallot Dressing

This salad is really easy to make and really delicious. I could eat it all day in a giant mixing bowl. I may have done that. I don’t always massage my kale mostly out of laziness. It’s always worth it and always better when you do. It breaks it down and makes it easier to […]

Coconut Cauliflower & Herb Mashed ‘Potatoes’

First off, there are no actual potatoes in this recipe. It’s cauliflower and celeriac (a celery bulb) mashed together in potato-like fashion. Don’t expect the texture to be the exact same, but the flavor is great and it functions just as well as a side dish that’s a little healthier for you. If you were […]

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa

MORE SQUASH! That’s what winter makes me yell to the people. And by the people I mean myself as I gorge on endless variations of this delicious winter vegetable. This was inspired by a quinoa stuffed squash that I had read about a while back and had been meaning to try. I also love it […]

Quinoa Salad with Corn and Cherry Tomatoes

This salad is super easy to make, delicious, and healthy. You can add additional lemon juice to taste if you like. You could also experiment using lime juice and other herbs like basil or cilantro. It’s best if you store it in the fridge for at least an hour before serving for the flavors to blend […]

Creamy Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing

  This dressing is bright and creamy. It goes great with any southwest salad, as a sandwich spread, or taco topping. You can add a little more water if you like it thinner, but don’t add any more than a tablespoon at a time so you can taste test as you go. Let me know […]

Chive Lemon Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is a nice tart complement to any basic mixed greens salad and a great use of extra chives (which if you buy chives, you probably have extra). I used it with mixed greens from the farmers market along with some cherry tomatoes and fresh cucumber. Very simple, but a great side salad […]

Lemon Basil Hummus

It’s no secret that I love hummus. It’s easy, healthy, delicious and you can create so many different flavor combinations with it (buffalo wing hummus for example). This fresh basil and lemon combination is one of my all time favorites. This same recipe can also work with other herbs like thyme, oregano, or rosemary. I’ll […]

Red Radish, Red Kale and Red Onion Hot Salad

I’ve been trying to figure out more and more ways to create dishes that are all or 95% vegetables. It’s a satisfying way to clear out the last of a batch of produce before it goes bad. It also creates really healthy dishes that I don’t feel bad if I end up inhaling the entire […]
