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.

Vibrant Vegan Double Broccoli Buddha Bowl

Vibrant Vegan Double Broccoli Buddha Bowl

A favorite Buddha bowl made with seven ingredients on green overdrive. You double up on broccoli through a coconut green curry pesto and florets, then toss with a quinoa base.

Pickled Turmeric Eggs

Pickled Turmeric Eggs

If you've got hard-boiled eggs and five extra minutes, you can make these beauties! They're the best. Hard-boiled eggs pickled in turmeric, shallot, and apple cider vinegar - beautiful, quick to make, and delicious.

Ten Ingredient Alkalizing Green Soup

Ten Ingredient Alkalizing Green Soup

Ten ingredients in a blender and you've got a potent, alkalizing green soup - spinach, herbs, garlic, with silky coconut cream, and some green split peas for staying power.

A Simple Carrot Soup

A Simple Carrot Soup

The simplest of carrot soups. One I love, in part, because it's an example of how a beautiful meal can come together with a bit of care, and an impossibly short list of ingredients. Carrots and onion form the base, which is spiked with dollop of red curry paste, and then pureed into silky oblivion.

Limoncello Macaroons

Limoncello Macaroons

A limoncello macaroon recipe along with a batch of photos from a cabin weekend in Mendocino. The cookies are golden-crusted, powder-coated, almond-citrus gems spiked with limoncello liqueur my sister made for me.

Bloody Mary Popcorn

Bloody Mary Popcorn

This is what happens when popcorn meets the flavors of a Bloody Mary cocktail. The magic is a simple-but-strong spice blend made from tomato, oregano, a bit of citrus, oregano, and celery.

Using your Underutilized Steamer

Using your Underutilized Steamer

I find myself using steam as a cooking technique increasingly for a number of reasons. It's deceptively fast. It maintains much of the vibrancy and vitally of ingredients. It's one of the most healthful ways to cook, and (as you'll see) it's surprisingly adaptable.

Broiled Saffron Dates

Broiled Saffron Dates

If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates - broiled with saffron, almond extract, ghee, and a bit of salt. They're unctuous, sweet goodness.

Grab & Go Chia Yogurt Parfait

Grab & Go Chia Yogurt Parfait

A favorite grab-and-go breakfast flecked with lots of nutritional chia seeds, and topped with berries and whatever you like for crunch. Takes two minutes tops to pull together.
