There's a pizza restaurant in my neighborhood that makes amazing salads. This one, for example, had farro, kale, avocado, carrots, fennel and a creamy green garlic dressing.
A heads up about a recipe I've done for Nikole Herriott's new For the Love of Pie series. My contribution: Blueberry Lemon Verbena Pie.
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.
A Parmesan cheese spread made with grated cheese, olive oil, a splash of white wine, and any other accents you can think of.
A beautiful ruby-hued rhubarb rosewater syrup. Perfect on (or in) everything from yogurt, spritzers, waffles, or oatmeal.
A spicy lemon coconut sauce that is good on just about everything - noodles, frittatas, soups. Keep a jar in the refrigerator, and you can use it to make things a little special throughout the week.
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.
This is how I like to cook saag paneer - chopped spinach, golden-crusted paneer cheese, assertively spices, and finished with toasted sesame seeds and fresh lemon juice.
I took slices of this chocolate bundt cake on a road trip to Portland this week. Slathered with chocolate buttermilk icing, it's a great travel treat made with a blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flours, lots of yogurt, and the darkest brown sugar I can get my hands on.
A simple tomato soup recipe inspired by a Melissa Clark recipe - pureed, warmly spiced, and perfect topped with everything from toasted almonds and herbs, to coconut cream or a poached egg.
