PACKED LUNCH MONDAYS: PUY LENTIL SALAD WITH RED CHARD AND SUNDRIED TOMATOES

puy lentil salad-2 The weather has started to turn—we’ve now got decidedly cooler afternoons and breezy evenings. Stores are stocked up on Halloween décor and candy (surprisingly late this year), and I went to the first farmer’s market of the season. I am really, totally, absolutely in Fall mode. While Fall here doesn’t require sweaters or come with changing foliage, I’ve been adjusting my diet to include warming soups and stews (and lots of cake, but shhhhh we’ll talk about that another day). This super-simple one-pot dish is fl ... Read More

garlic green beans-2 I have a confession: I really, really, really like garlic. Like, a LOT. And I’m kind of hoping you like garlic too, because if you don’t then I’m not sure we can be friends (or that you should keep reading this). A part of me would love to put garlic in everything I make, but the one thing I love more than garlic is subtlety in flavor—I like being able to taste all of the elements in a dish, and to feel them all come together rather than having one ingredient overpower the rest. Because garlic can do that sometim ... Read More





        

QUINOA “TABBOULEH”

quinoa tabbouleh One of the things I love the most about Middle Eastern food is that there’s an amazing array of salads and dips and things to nibble on. Meat is usually at the center of a typical meal, but mezze is what I enjoy most. They create a wonderful communal experience, with everyone dipping their bread into colorful little bowls of spiced dips and jeweled salads.

CLEMENTINE SALAD WITH AVOCADO, FETA, AND RADISH – 3/1 SEASONAL CHALLENGE RECIPE

clementine salad-3 In a bid to make this year a lighter and brighter one than last year, Roly and I have started to be more mindful of what we eat, and also of what we bring into our home. Having lived in the same apartment for several years now, we’ve accumulated lots of knick-knacks and random bits and pieces. Some of them have sentimental value (and some of them don’t) but we’ve decided to clear out all of the things we no longer need (or want) and keep only those that we truly love having around. So far, it’s been great. We have ... Read More
