Carrot and Spinach Breakfast Muffins

Christ is Risen! Glory be to God! Another recipe to share from Phaidon’s “The Greek Cookbook”. So far, nothing has been a disappointment from this cookbook. The recipes are easy to make vegan for someone who has an intolerance to dairy. The flavor combination of dill and cumin and the Greek yogurt is a mixture…

Cheesy Carrot Keftedes

Christ is Risen! Lately I have been eating many Greek inspired dishes and going to our local Greek restaurant, Elea. From observation, a lot of the Greek foods are wholesome foods and many are plant based, or can be easily made plant based. In Greek culture, majority of the population is Orthodox Christian. Part of…

What to Do with Beet Stems

Yesterday I made a couple of beet dishes from “Vegetables Illustrated” and they tasted absolutely AMAZING! I don’t like to throw food to waste if I know I can turn them into something tasty and healthy. There’s a guilt voice in my head that says, ” we can turn that into something”, which applies to…

Pistou sauce with grilled vegetables

Christ is risen! Grilling season is amongst us and that calls for fresh summer produce springing up and marinades. One of the things that excites me for the summer season is fresh herbs, especially basil and rosemary. I don’t usually travel during the summer so these herbs transport me to Italy by taste. This recipe…
