Vegan Chipotle Slaw

Serious coleslaw enthusiast here! I love it creamy, I love it tangy – it’s just a great vessel for raw cabbage that you can spice up in a variety of ways. I was going to saute a pound of turkey meat with chopped garlic and Frontera Red Enchilada Sauce to make easy tacos for dinnerContinue reading “Vegan Chipotle Slaw”

Grilled Radicchio Salad

Not going to lie, very much missing Via Carota right now. I love their grilled raddichio, amongst basically everything else of the menu. Theirs is definitely much oilier than this, but Via Carota can get away with that. Typing this I’m thinking I should find a way to re-create the griddled Scamorza so stay tuned.Continue reading “Grilled Radicchio Salad”

Triple Sesame Green Beans

I’ve never cooked much with bamboo shoots, but when I was looking for canned goods – outside of your usual suspects like corn, chickpeas, baked beans, etc. – I saw these Native Forest Organic Bamboo Shoots and threw a bunch of them in my cart. Combine that with a newfound appreciation for tahini – thanksContinue reading “Triple Sesame Green Beans”

Cauliflower Carbonara

A lot of Rome inspiration these days. My favorite carbonara on Earth also is located in the great city of Rome at Maccheroni. I think it’s just fun to reminisce about foregone days of traveling right now. I got the idea for doing this Cauliflower Carbonara when I had a leftover package of bacon andContinue reading “Cauliflower Carbonara”

Green Pea Pesto Penne with Roasted Artichokes

Artichokes are such a great canned item to keep in your pantry. I love a fresh steamed artichoke, a little lemon aioli to dip the leaves into, but canned artichokes in general are such an awesome product since getting to the heart of a fresh artichoke is simply a pain in the ass. I haveContinue reading “Green Pea Pesto Penne with Roasted Artichokes”

Everyone’s family has famous dishes – in my husband’s family, it’s Grandma Lila’s Spinach Squares.
