Quick Recipes

Quick recipes often become my favorites. They are the ones I revisit most often, the ones that have a tendency to become staples. I’m a believer that just because a recipe comes together quickly, doesn’t mean it's less special or delicious.

Asparagus Salad

Asparagus Salad

Inspired by the new farmers market up the street from my house, I made this sauteed asparagus and broccolini salad. Finished with slivered radishes, a chunky lemon-pinenut dressing, and a bit of shaved Parmesan it works alongside pasta, topped with poached eggs, or, on its own.

Grilled Fava Beans

Grilled Fava Beans

If you haven't tried grilled fava beans, you must! You can make them on the grill or in a grill pan. Toss them out onto a newspaper where people can dive in and make a bit of a mess with the pods and skins.

Poached spinach noodles, tofu, and baby broccoli in ginger broth. Finished with a splash of soy sauce, mint, basil, lime juice and red pepper flakes. Quick, simple, and invigorating.
