I can’t think of a better accompaniment to feta cheese than another Mediterranean mainstay: eggplant. For this recipe, I roast eggplant and top it with sliced sheep’s milk feta cheese. The softness and earthiness of the eggplant is contrasted by the saltiness and tougher texture of the cheese. Enjoy!

One way to remedy that food belly you’re carrying into the new year is to start making soups. By keeping the soup as clean as possible – no milk, cream, butter or other heavy add-ins – you get your body back on track, but by using the comfort of creamy cauliflower as well as nut [...]
This recipe serves tofu in a very simple, yet fragrant way. Marinated in and olive oil mixture of fresh mint and spices, the tofu absorbs excellent flavor. Seared simply for a few minutes on both sides, the tofu takes about 5 minutes to completion. Enjoy!
Green beans are so understated. They are filling, but light, and their flavor is subtle enough not to overwhelm your senses and instead invite complementary ingredients.

These spicy zucchini fries are baked to cut fat grams and are without the potato to avoid a carb overload. While zucchini fries aren’t as firm as traditional fries, they hold their own quite well and taste wonderful when baked with [...]
This recipe is fuss-free and full of character. All they take are 10 minutes in the oven and then they’re ready to pick up and chomp. Last week I couldn’t get enough of roasted pepper, but I tended to make them a component of a dish, rather than the main spectacle. These Open-Face Red Pepper [...]
Many people shy away from making fish at home, because of the taboo surrounding the ability to cook it just right. I’ve always considered it the easiest of all meats to cook (at least far easier than chicken). The hard part comes in completing the flavor profile. Sure, fish only really needs some oil or [...]
