Mung Yoga Bowl

Mung Yoga Bowl

The kind of bowl that keeps you strong - herb-packed yogurt dolloped over a hearty bowl of mung beans and quinoa, finished with toasted nuts and a simple paprika oil.

Giant Lemon Fennel Beans

Giant Lemon Fennel Beans

Baby fennel, big white beans, sliced lemon, a honey-kissed in-pan white wine sauce, all finished with a shower of chopped dill.

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.

Sake Mushrooms

Sake Mushrooms

Going through a stack of papers in my kitchen I found a note to myself, a recipe to try. The note simply said: big mushrooms, dunk in sake, dredge in rice flour, sauté, salt, dot with miso butter.

Pomelo Green Beans

Pomelo Green Beans

A one-pan green bean side with a walnut-garlic dressing and highlighted with pomelo segments. Transform it into an easy main with the addition of some seared tofu or a poached egg.

Roasted Squash, Chile, and Mozzarella Salad

Roasted Squash, Chile, and Mozzarella Salad

A peek at spreads from The Kinfolk Table, the new cookbook from Nathan Williams celebrating small gatherings. From it I made a Roasted Squash, Chile, & Mozzarella Salad tangled with spicy arugula.

Silverdollar Socca

Silverdollar Socca

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

Avocado Salad

Avocado Salad

A few snapshots from Mexico City & an avocado salad - thinly sliced avocado arranged over simple lentils, drizzled with oregano oil, toasted hazelnuts, and chives.

Yellow Wax Beans & Scallions

Yellow Wax Beans & Scallions

A quick sauté of yellow wax beans, golden almonds and pepitas, topped with threads of tiny micro scallions.

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.
