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!
This hummus forced me out of my "hummus-laziness." I was buying sriracha hummus from Trader Joe's for the longest time because it was easy and my life can sometimes get pretty hectic.
(Plus, they stopped carrying 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.
Sometimes I get serious cravings for greens- thank goodness my body knows what's up and let's me know I'm lacking something. This salad definitely satisfies the taste buds with the sweet, tart, and bitter all packed together. Collards are in the cruciferous family and may help prevent some cancers with their sulfur-containing compounds.
If you're already a brussel sprouts fan, you'll fall more in love with these gems. If you're not a brussels sprouts fan, these will be sure to change your mind!
I think I might have eaten 2 cups the first time I made them. HA! Whoops.
I've gotten so many requests for this recipe and quite frankly, I'm not surprised. They look like french fries, yet they have a much more complex flavor. If you're looking to take it up a notch with your meal, I'd highly suggest these as a fun side dish.
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.
This was so simple, yet so delicious. I felt fancy eating it just from the way it looked. I packed this as a snack for a trip in the car. I was never so happy to eat something so fresh while out and about. The tomatoes were marinated by the time I ate them, which made it all the better.
This recipe comes from my good friend, Rachita Kenny, whom I was classmates with in graduate school. She helped keep me sane during the crazy times. I have her to thank for this magic! I have tweaked a few things to play around with the amount of sugar my scoby needs to survive and what's palatable in the end. This is the best I've come up with so far. Hope you enjoy it too!
This is a fabulous make ahead, delicious, and pretty crowd pleaser. It's grain and dairy free. All components can be made in advance without losing any flavor, texture or just plain goodness. It can all be done in one hour, which is the best part. I am also not a measurer (Is that a word?) so feel free to tweak, add, and/or delete ingredients you may not love. The amount of garlic I used may offend you, but in my world, there's never too much garlic!
This recipe was an extremely pleasant surprise and then I could not stop eating it! I was concerned the beet flavor would completely overtake the entire dish, but that was not the case. It blends well with the tomatoes and cucumber to give it a balanced finish.
This is full of vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate, iron, and fiber, so eat up!
