Shredded Egg Salad

Shredded Egg Salad

Shredded Egg Salad - made by shredding hard-boiled eggs on a box grater. It makes a light, fluffy, bright egg salad, and I must say, a nice alternative to chopped, heavily dressed versions of the classic.

Persian Yogurt Soup

Persian Yogurt Soup

Traditional and tasty, this soup is a test of patience and restraint. If you're easily distracted, skip it. If you can mind a pot, stirring, singularly-focused, for a half hour, perhaps longer, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful, vegetarian version of the herbed, Persian yogurt soup, Ashe Mast.

Tiny socca-inspired pancakes made with buttermilk or keffir - golden, tender, and cooked in cold-pressed spicy mustard oil. Flat out delicious.

A summer vegetable curry punctuated with the citrusy pop of fresh coriander seeds.

Mung Bean Hummus

Mung Bean Hummus

To get the smoothest, creamiest hummus using chickpeas, you have to peel them. For creamy hummus, without the extra effort, I use mung beans instead. They work beautifully. Top the hummus with shallot oil, fresh chives, and za'atar.

Ginger Coconut Milk Soup

Ginger Coconut Milk Soup

I posted a picture of my lunch the other day, and a few of you requested specifics - it was a spring soup made with a ginger & shallot coconut milk broth, spring vegetables, served over egg noodles.

Labneh

How a package from Jaipur, India inspired lots of yogurt-straining, labneh-making.
