Citrus Salt
Citrus Salt - January 18, 2012

A spectrum of citrus salts made from all sorts of winter citrus zest - clementines, wild lime, Meyer lemon, kalamansi oranges, and mandarinquats. Couldn't be simpler.

Orange Pan-glazed Tempeh
Orange Pan-glazed Tempeh - January 21, 2009

The best tempeh recipe I've highlighted to date - it features a simple ginger and garlic-spiked orange glaze that plays of the nutty earthiness of the pan-fried tempeh beautifully.

Sushi Bowl

This sushi bowl recipe is simply a de-constructed sushi roll - brown rice, tofu, avocado, toasted nori and green onions served with a citrus-soy dressing. Simple and delicious.

Meyer Lemon Risotto
Meyer Lemon Risotto - February 7, 2007

I prefer this barley-based risotto recipe to many other rice based versions - and it is more nutritious. A pearl barley base is accented with white wine, creme fraiche, lots of meyer lemon zest, chopped greens, and Parmesan cheese.

Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes - November 8, 2006

This mashed sweet potato recipe is an all-time favorite, perfect for Thanksgiving. Plump vanilla beans, cream, orange zest, and butter are combined with sweet potatoes that have been roasted in the oven. A quick whirl in the food processor produces a smooth, creamy, subtly sweet puree haunted by the delicious vanilla and citrus undertones. The consistency is that of a thick frosting.

A lovely salad recipe utilizing a vibrant citrus and Parmesan vinaigrette. I did a demo of this salad at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmers Market.

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.
