Roasted Squash, Chile, and Mozzarella Salad - October 9, 2013

A peek at spreads from The Kinfolk Table, the new cookbook from Nathan Williams celebrating small gatherings. From it I made a Roasted Squash, Chile, & Mozzarella Salad tangled with spicy arugula.

Five Herb Pesto
Five Herb Pesto - June 17, 2013

A summer pesto made from a mix of coriander, basil, arugula, oregano, and chives, and links to a few other new recipes we've sprinkled around the QUITOKEETO shop site.

Heirloom Apple Salad
Heirloom Apple Salad - December 2, 2012

The sort of winter salad I love - heirloom apples, shaved celery, and toasted nuts of your choosing. The dressing is crème fraîche spiked with rosemary, garlic and champagne vinegar

Sprout Salad
Sprout Salad - May 24, 2012

One of the best salads I've made in a long time (mung bean sprouts, avocado, arugula, yogurt, almonds) & a look at the QUITOKEETO packaging.

Green Rice with Smoked Paprika
Green Rice with Smoked Paprika - May 15, 2012

The green rice recipe that got away from me - lots of spring produce, finished with smoked paprika and toasted pine nuts.

Avocado Asparagus Tartine
Avocado Asparagus Tartine - April 11, 2012

An excellent impromptu springtime lunch tartine: avocado smeared across toasted day-old slabs of sesame bread, layered with arugula and garlicky caraway asparagus + toasted pepitas.

Macaroni Salad
Macaroni Salad - June 28, 2011

A twist on classic macaroni salad - I toss the pasta with a creamy sauce made from sauteed green onions, then add lots of black pepper, arugula, diced apple, and lemon juice to the bowl.

Sea Salt Baked Potatoes
Sea Salt Baked Potatoes - May 19, 2011

I love this baked potato recipe, topped with well-dressed arugula - that, plus a few pics from a road trip to Marfa, Texas.

A few more Rome pics & a simple pasta dish made from ricotta-stuffed tortelli tossed with brown butter balsamic sauce, arugula, pecorino cheese, and lemon zest.

Green Bean Slaw
Green Bean Slaw - September 27, 2010

A nut-studded, slaw-like green bean salad I made for lunch yesterday from a few things I picked up in the nearby shops and stalls here in the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome - moscato-soaked raisins, arugula, perorino cheese, croutons. Plus a few travel photos.

Pineapple Rice
Pineapple Rice - September 15, 2009

A nice platter of greens and brown rice doused in a spicy-salty-sweet pineapple dressing flecked with seitan. It's good hot or at room temperature.

Arugula Pesto Wheat Berries
Arugula Pesto Wheat Berries - August 3, 2009

A peppery arugula pesto tossed with a bowl of plump, chewy wheat berries. The bite of the arugula is tamed by the creaminess of the pine nuts in the pesto, and the saltiness of the grated Parmesan and chopped Kalamata olive offsets the wheat berries nicely.

Giant Black Bean Salad
Giant Black Bean Salad - June 7, 2009

A twist on the ubiquitous black bean salad - giant black beans and toasted almonds are tossed with a honey-jalapeno-lime dressing and served with a bit of crumbled feta over a bed of baby arugula.

Ottolenghi Red Rice and Quinoa
Ottolenghi Red Rice and Quinoa - May 12, 2008

Ottolenghi's beautiful red rice and quinoa recipe - a substantial, color-flecked platter showcasing citrus-dressed grains punctuated by pistachios, dried apricots, and arugula.

Roasted Beet and Blood Orange Salad with Spicy Greens
Roasted Beet and Blood Orange Salad with Spicy Greens - January 7, 2005

A beautiful beet salad, it can be done without the greens, or with just a bit of greens as a side dish. The vinaigrette is delicious, and the salad looks stunning as part of a larger spread. It would make a great addition to any winter buffet.
