Spiced Spaghetti Squash Pancake + Herb-Tahini-Miso Sauce

This spiced spaghetti squash pancake is a magical mix between a socca and a savory pancake. Cooked spaghetti squash gets mixed with warming spices, fresh herbs, an egg, some chickpea flour, and pan-fried to create a delicious vessel for whatever you chose to pile on top of it. Personally, I can get bored of the…

Miso-Lime Soyaki Salmon with Gingery Broccolini

This salmon recipe is definitely a go-too for me when I’m feeling like having Asian for dinner. It is really simple to make and can be used with so many other foods like my gingery broccolini, rice, over noodles, etc. I use my favorite, Trader Joes Soyaki sauce, which has a mixture of mostly soy…

Stuffed Peppers

Instead of making burgers, meatballs, taco filling, or pasta with ground turkey, try out these stuffed peppers for a change! ¬†Overall, these stuffed peppers are pretty light with the use of ground turkey over beef, no heavy rice filling, use of fresh vegetables, and just a little (or big) sprinkle of cheese of top. They…

Quinoa, Almond, Flax Bread

This bread is gluten free, grain free, yeast free, and still delicious. I’ve been on the hunt for a bread at the store that fits this criteria, isn’t expensive, doesn’t have a long list of weird ingredients, and still tastes good, but I haven’t found one yet so I created this one! This one is…

Asparagus with Parmesan, Thyme, and Sunny Side Up Egg

This dish was created in my cooking class during my time spent abroad in Florence, Italy. This class allowed me to connect with my Italian roots and appreciate the simplicity of Italian cuisine and the importance of using quality ingredients in dishes. While this dish may seem very simple, there is really so much more…

Fresh Peach Tart with Walnut Crust

This recipe is adapted from Amy Chaplin’s cookbook, At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen. I made this tart for fourth of July this year after finding the best, juicy, ripe, fresh peaches and it turned out so good. I love this recipe because it is not really sweet, and allows the natural sweetness of…

Turmeric Spiced Maca Granola

In my opinion, there is no granola sold at a grocery store that is better than homemade granola! I also believe most granola has way too much sugar in it and doesn’t make for a healthy breakfast or snack. This granola is low in sugar but still delicious. It also has added benefits from anti-inflammatory…

Red Lentil Vegetable Soup

This soup is a staple in my household. It is nourishing, simple, clean, and so good. It is warm enough to have in the winter, and still bright enough to have in the spring/summer season. Sometimes I’ll add more veggies to it, depending on what is in season, or keep it simple with just greens,…
