I’m Heidi – This site celebrates cooking, and aspires to help you integrate the power of lots of vegetables and whole foods into your everyday meals. The recipes you’ll find here are vegetarian, often vegan, written with the home cook in mind.
Tiny socca-inspired pancakes made with buttermilk or keffir - golden, tender, and cooked in cold-pressed spicy mustard oil. Flat out delicious.
A simple late-summer breakfast bowl - Greek yogurt with a bit of chopped dill incorporated, topped with sliced pluots, toasted oats, poppy seeds, and honey.
Whisper thin crepe-like pancakes made from brown rice flour, coconut milk, eggs, and sesame seeds. And my preference in pots and pans.
A summer vegetable curry punctuated with the citrusy pop of fresh coriander seeds.
A simple bowl of toasted rolled oats finished with a bit of miso, then topped with a load of minced chives, walnuts, baby radishes, and a thread of cream. Also, a few snapshots from Los Angeles.
A quick sauté of yellow wax beans, golden almonds and pepitas, topped with threads of tiny micro scallions.
Beautiful raspberries tossed with saffron brown sugar, vanilla paste, olive oil, and toasted almonds.
A summer pesto made from a mix of coriander, basil, arugula, oregano, and chives, and links to a few other new recipes we've sprinkled around the QUITOKEETO shop site.
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.
A reminder of just how good simple, steamed vegetables can be.
