(Raw) Borscht Salad

I've had an abundance of beets lately and needed some new inspiration to use them up. I'm not all that fond of roasted beets, and one can only use so many in juice.  So... in thinking about it, I thought of the many dinners of borscht that I've had. I have several Russian & Ukranian… Continue reading (Raw) Borscht Salad

Cauliflower & Chickpeas with Mustard-Dill Sauce

This week I had a HUGE head of cauliflower to use up. The last time I made roasted veggies, they didn't turn out quite as good as I wanted them to, so I looked at some other options for this beautiful cauliflower. I used half of it for spring rolls with this amazing cauliflower tabbouleh… Continue reading Cauliflower & Chickpeas with Mustard-Dill Sauce

These are gluten free, soy free, and can be made with… Continue reading Oil-Free Chipotle Roasted Potatoes

I've made a few, some with more or less additional flavors,  and one that was fairly true to the egg salad flavor & texture. This time, I went a different way, based on… Continue reading Spicy Tofu Salad

Citrusy Spring Rolls

Here I am again with something completely unlike me. I have to admit, I'm not one to mix citrus fruits with much else besides other fruits, juices, and smoothies. But lately, I've been seeing lots of recipes online mixing citrus with strange (to me) things - grapefruit in wraps, oranges in sandwiches and such. I… Continue reading Citrusy Spring Rolls

A Hot & Sweet Potato

Today I made one of the easiest & yummiest things ~ a hot & sweet potato. Sweet potatoes are incredibly nutritious, especially the ones that are darker orange. Yams are also darker orange, and share many of the same nutrients, even though yams and sweet potatoes are only distantly related. They have a good amount… Continue reading A Hot & Sweet Potato
