Now that we are in the colder months, this is sure to warm your soul. The key for this recipe is being patient at each step to really pull out all the flavors of the ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, almost all of them are listed on my pantry staples list, so when you’re in a pinch, this can be your new go-to.
With the cold weather hitting us like a ton of bricks this past week, this soup will warm you right up. It will get the blood flowing from the hint of spice.
I like to call this candy on a plate. When it’s roasted, it gets a very caramely taste. That’s not even a word, but who cares-you know what I mean. ☺ This is also one of the simplest side dishes you can make, especially to wow your guests.
We all know Halloween is around the corner and for most people it means gobs of candy bars in your face at the office, at the store, basically anywhere you go at this time of year. One way to help curb those candy cravings is to incorporate naturally sweet foods, such as this silky butternut squash soup.
This is by far the easiest tomato "salad" you'll ever make in your life. I put "salad" in quotes because it's not really a salad, but I don't know what else to call it. HA! When you have high quality ingredients, all you have to do is slightly enhance the flavor and voila, you have yourself one of the best tasting meals.
How can anyone resist a fresh rustic sourdough bread loaf from the local bakery? I went to the Princeton Farmers Market and had all of the ingredients staring at me in the face.
This is one of the fastest and easiest sides to throw on the plate for a quick dinner. The lightly sauteed tomatoes provide a juicy surprise on your palate no matter what you serve it with. This side was served with my slow roasted salmon (as seen in the photo).
This has to be another one of my clients' favorites. The marinated is what makes this chicken melt in your mouth. The crispy, flavorful skin might be my favorite part.
This is an easy crowd pleaser and you can make it ahead.
Switch up the regular cauliflower florets and cut the head into thick slices. They look absolutely beautiful on a plate instead of plopping on a pile of cauliflower.
This is a good trick for a fancy dinner party. It actually requires less cutting and less time. But shhhhh, no one needs to know that!
This has to be one of my most favorite salads of all time, plus it's super easy to make. It is incredibly refreshing and nutrient dense. It's filled with prebiotic fibers, folate, manganese, copper, potassium, vitamin C, iron, vitamin A, and has anti-inflammatory properties.
This has the ability to lighten up any meal as a side.
This is a fun dish to do for a dinner party, as each person can get their own packet on their plate. It switches it up from the normal service. The onion sauce can be made in advance, so it would just be putting the packets together and throwing them in the oven.
This is the perfect meal on a hot day. It's refreshing, crunchy, juicy, and packs a punch with the ginger. So often we get caught up on what a chicken salad is. Let me guess, you pictured a mayo-base?
MAYO BE GONE!
If you like herbs and lemon, this may be the perfect side dish for you! The first time I made it, I shocked myself with how insanely delicious it was! I always add extra herbs for flavor and nutritional value.
This is a perfect cleansing soup as we transition into spring. It’s filled with vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B1, copper, manganese, phosphorus, folate and fiber. This soup is a perfect side for meals on hot days.
(You can also have it warm if you’d like.)
This might be one of my all-time favorite recipes! I adjusted it from this NYT recipe. I took out the sausage and made it dairy free. I don’t even know what the heck makes this taste so good, but you HAVE to try it!
Want to feel refreshed? Jicama is one of my faves these days. It's crunchy, juicy, filled with fiber, and makes a great salad topper. It helps with bone health by increasing the absorption of calcium and it promotes good bacteria growth in the gut.
If you want salmon that simply melts in your mouth, this is the recipe for you. This is definitely my new go-to way to cook salmon, as it comes out of the oven extremely tender. Combine the tenderness with the crunchy veggies and you have yourself quite the combo.
This recipe made my taste buds explode! The roasted radishes were an extra surprise for me, as I usually eat them raw. Roasting them took off the harsh and spicy edge they usually have, but left a juicy and crunchy delight.
This recipe has my heart. It touched all the senses and flavors in my book. It's one of those dishes you never want to end. It can be easily adjusted to suit your palate.
