Simple and delicious, vibrant green spinach and zucchini soup recipe. Light-and-healthy, but still creamy textured and plenty tasty.
Golden, crisped potato crouton recipe. Great in place of bread croutons in soups and salads.
A great way to use nutritious quinoa. This quinoa and grilled zucchini recipe is tossed with a pretty, pale green cilantro-flecked avocado dressing.
A stunning jewel-colored rosewater plum compote. It can make ordinary french toast, waffles, pancakes, and crepes, and vanilla ice cream extra special.
A deliciously vibrant, earthy, and slightly smoky-tasting salsa recipe. Different from salsa fresca, the deep, caramelized flavors of the roasted tomatoes and onions alongside the smokiness of the chipotles make for a richly beautiful and balanced salsa.
A kabob recipe featuring grilled mushrooms, lemons, tofu red onions and a delicious red pepper walnut slather.
A platter of petite, potato pillows coated with glistening flecks of basil pesto. The gnocchi recipe taught to me by Francesca's mother.
Eggs cooked crepe thin and stuffed. A delicious and lighter alternative to heavy, cheese-stuffed omelette recipes - great for lunch and brunch.
A tasty white bean salad topped with toasted walnuts, crumbled cheese, and a hint of citrus. Makes a good side dish, a satisfying lunch, or light dinner.
A bejeweled platter of bulgur wheat,chili roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, spinach, and yogurt cheese. A perfect companion for grilled kabobs.
