I’m a big fan of comfort food, but sometimes it’s difficult to build the complex flavors associated with these dishes in a short amount of time.
Take the fajita, for example. I absolutely love the flavor of the charred meats and veggies, packed with flavorful spices, rice, and beans. The problem is, I’m not going to make all of those components on a weeknight. No one’s got time for that.
That is, unless there’s a way to develop those satisfying flavors without the extra time. Lucky for us, there is a way! This fajita recipe outlines how you can get this Tex-Mex classic on the table in less than an hour. And the best part? It’s healthier than usual.
So when indi chocolate reached out to me to see if I’d be up for the challenge of using their cocoa spice rubs in a recipe, I said, “Yes please.”
The result? A sweet twist on a Mediterranean-inspired dish: roast cauliflower with tahini, pomegranates, and indi chocolate’s cacao-masala spice rub. Read on to learn more about indi chocolate and to get this easy recipe!
Every time Thanksgiving comes around I find myself thinking the same thing: “Why on earth do we only have this meal once a year?!” I’d much prefer if we ate that addictive turkey and sides combo multiple times throughout the year.
Since it’s going to take me some more time to win that battle, the next best thing is coming up with a recipe that can recreate the flavors of Thanksgiving well beyond the big day. This recipe has everything I love rolled up into one meatball. The turkey. The sweetness you get from root vegetables like sweet potatoes. The tartness from cranberries. The savoriness from sage.
And the best part? You don’t have to wait 4+ hours for this pumpkin meatball recipe to be done.
Blueberry season is among us! Every year I like to go blueberry picking at Mercer Slough in Bellevue, Washington. My family goes complete ham and comes home with pounds and pounds of blueberries. A lot of them end up in my morning smoothies, but I like to reserve some for no or minimally-cooked dishes during the dog days of summer.
Enter this Israeli couscous salad recipe. When mixed with corn and high-quality extra virgin olive oil, the blueberries add a glorious burst of juice and sweetness to an otherwise savory dish.
Read on for an easy salad recipe that’s about to become your new summer staple.
How can a dish that photographs so terribly taste so good? It’s life questions like these that I ask myself when I think about this Italian chicken recipe I made. Seriously…this is one of those dishes that, when I ate it, I said, “Hot damn, this might be one of the best dishes I’ve ever made.”
Yet…it looks so…plain. But trust me, this Italian chicken recipe is anything but plain. It’s lemony, herbaceous, and super easy to make. So if you care more about food that tastes good than looks pretty, this recipe is for you.
(And whatever, I decided this is more “rustic” than plain. 🙂 )
