Vegan Zucchini Fritters

July 31, 2018

This is a handy recipe to have around when there happens to be a few assorted vegetables but not enough of anything to make a full meal. These fritters have become a family favorite for sure and there is never a leftover in sight. That was even true today when we doubled the recipe in…

Creamy Lemon Zucchini Soup

July 23, 2018

It happens to be every gardener’s dilemma this time of year – what to do with all the zucchini? It’s impossible to have too many recipes for zucchini. Apparently it is an international problem as well because our neighbors down the road gifted us with a basket full last Sunday morning. Moments later, a summer…

Herbed Polenta

July 16, 2018

I love to work with recipes that are easily modified and polenta certainly fits in that category. This particular version can be eaten creamy almost porridge like or firm and cut into slices. Even the slices themselves can be served as is, pan roasted in a small amount of olive oil, grilled briefly on a…

Lauren’s Aubergine, Tomatoes, and Mushrooms

Jul 4, 2018 | 0 Comments

This is my go to summer dish when eggplant is at it’s peak, everyone is hungry, and dinner needs to appear with the wave of my magic wand. From start to finish this can be on the table in 40 minutes or left to simmer longer if you desire. Ingredients 2 medium sized eggplant (select only those with shiny skins that are firm to touch), cut into cubes, salt and put in a wire sieve over a bowl to drain…

When I saw Simply CeeCee’s  instagram post of mushroom laden rice noodles I didn’t miss a beat before setting out to create my own version. There’s not a doubt this recipe is a keeper in the Hubele home and once the mushrooms are prepped, it’s on the table in minutes. Here’s the original recipe and below you will find my take with brand suggestions. Either way it’s a winner.  Enjoy!   DanDan Sauce 1/4 cup tahini 1 /4 cup of…

Spring Carrot Salad

Apr 6, 2018 | 2 Comments

Carrot salad has always been a weeknight standard in the Hubele salad rotation. It’s a quick prep when time is limited and because it only improves with an overnight in the fridge, it makes for a welcome lunch the following day. This Heidi Swanson version however takes carrot salad to the next level and is well deserving of a place in your next dinner party menu. Ingredients 2 bunches carrots, preferably local rainbow variety Extra virgin olive oil Fine grain sea…
