Sweet Potatoes with Creamy Tahini Sauce

The pairing of creamy, steamed sweet potato with tangy, tahini topping is a match made in heaven. The simplicity begins with a short, accessible list of ingredients ⁠— and there is virtually no clean-up!

Georgian Spinach Pkhali

July 6, 2019

It was news to me that Georgian food is quite popular in Ukraine. I certainly didn’t want to miss an opportunity to try it. Sondro, the husband of my host Lena, is Georgian. So when she guided me to their neighborhood restaurant, I knew it would be good. Now to be clear, many of the…

Awesome Raw Falafel

June 29, 2019

I will admit to being a huge falafel fan — and yet I know well that deep frying doesn’t serve my body. All I have to do to remember is eat a few. 😉 So I was thrilled to discover a raw version this week at my favorite Romanian restaurant, Samsara. Of course, everything Samsara…

Vegan Corn and Kale Chowder

Jun 9, 2019 | 0 Comments

Here’s a satisfying way to use sweet and tender fresh corn. Combining it with other seasonal vegetables makes this chowder a meal on its own. The smoky paprika adds a nice depth of flavor, complemented by the tang of fresh lime juice added before serving. Ingredients 5 ears of fresh corn, husks removed and sliced off the cob 1 small red onion, diced 1 sweet red bell pepper, diced 1 jalapeno, diced and seeds removed 3 cups red or Yukon…

Smoky Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Jun 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

One look at Minimalist Baker’s latest veggie burger recipe, and I knew I had to make it. For me, the challenge was skipping the barbecue sauce (not a winner among the German guys I feed) and still achieve a well-seasoned result. I’d call the experiment a success! (and if you happen to be a barbecue sauce fan, you will find a link to the original recipe below) Fair warning: You’ll need to set aside a full hour to prep this…

The heat is here already in Texas. That means salads brimming with fresh local produce show up on our table every day. While a vinaigrette dressing is always delicious, there are times something rich and creamy is in order. Here are two of my recent go-to recipes. Tahini Ranch Dressing When I saw the words “tahini ranch,” I was intrigued and put the recipe to test that same evening. Here is the version I ended up with after a few…

Chard Packets

May 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

Honestly, I don’t know which came first. I LOVE this recipe. I adore the creator’s photography. I am amused by their name — KrautKopf (cabbage head). And I was pleasantly surprised to find this couple lives in Berlin. So, let’s talk about these adorable bundles of goodness I can’t wait to share with you. I have to admit, one look at the picture and I made a dash to Wheatsville to pick up rainbow chard — how could I resist?…

Salt-Crusted Potatoes with Cilantro Mojo

May 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

I am super fortunate to live with two open-minded eaters. They not only put up with my kitchen experiments, they fully participate with suggestions and ideas (sometimes a few more than I am prepared for!). So, when my husband holds up a gorgeous, salt-crusted potato on his fork and declares it perfect, I take him seriously. Allow me to share this delightfully simple, “perfect” potato dish (by the way, there was not one morsel left at the end of the…
