I love arugula in small doses, because it is quite peppery and potent. It’s health benefits are through the roof, so my favorite way to complement its flavors are with sot textures and both fresh and strong flavors to offset and challenge the arugula itself. This recipe is filling and delicious – I’ve combined arugula [...]

This recipe is super simple and packs a big punch and some density, which satisfies hunger pangs but doesn’t weigh you down. Halloumi is so much fun to work with because it doesn’t melt and instead browns and softens, developing a deep taste. The dressing is a simple mixture of vinegar, olive oil, capers, and [...]
I’m always interested in noodle varieties that are not plain white noodles. Soba noodles are buckwheat-based, which means they are easier on digestion and introduce new flavors to my palette. This recipe keeps it simple with a few vegetables. Enjoy!
I love jasmine rice because of its deep taste and its dark color. It’s fun to work with, and I decided to pair it with grated beets for an even darker-colored dish with an earthier flavor. It’s super delicious, filling and great for digestion! Raw beet is much more easy to eat when its shredded [...]
These ended up being a lot easier to make than I expected. This recipe doesn’t make you wait for the dough to rise, so you get to the end result faster. The texture is bready and the aroma just as you would expect! Enjoy!
What I like the most about this salmon burger is that, besides being tender and melt-in-your-mouth delicious, it doesn’t need any grain or flour to hold the patties together. All you need is the addition of one egg, and the salmon forms into patties well without falling apart. Plus, because you are keeping the dish [...]
Another vegan burger has entered my life, and it’s quite delicious. Using sweet potato and white beans as the base, the burger holds together when cooked, but has a softer bite. Balanced with a few spices and veggies, it’s a nutrition-packed way to enjoy a burger but without all the fillers. Enjoy!
I doubt you have leftover mashed potatoes left from Thanksgiving, but isn’t it sad that most of us don’t really have mashed potatoes regularly? In my experience, it’s a comfort dish that I’d see at family gatherings or holiday dinners, not an everyday side dish unless, that is, it’s the packaged grocery store variety that [...]
By itself, celery root is subtle, but its distinct flavor (tastes like a combination of celery and parsley) is something you can never tire of regardless of how it’s cooked. Like when enjoying most vegetables, I usually have celeriac when lightly sautéed with butter and seasoned with salt and pepper. Today, I decided to make [...]
Cooking greens always results in deliciousness. Cooking heightens leaves’ flavor, breaks down the cell walls of tougher greens (i.e. kale) so that nutrients are easier to assimilate, and make the salad element to a meal way more fun. The best taste – fried greens – but because I like to keep things less guilty around [...]
