Marvelously Rich and Simple Mushroom Soup (Paleo)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 14, 2015 at 12:48pm

As a mushroom fiend, I’ve made many attempts at mushroom soup, never to discover one that I wanted to make again.

Pakoras (Crispy Vegetable Fritters)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 28, 2013 at 1:22pm

Pakoras, or crispy vegetable fritters made with chickpea flour, are one of my favorite Indian treats. Let’s be honest – I love anything fried – but the combination of tender-crisp vegetables, fresh chiles, and aromatic spices make these fritters particularly addictive. And unlike French fries, they’re fast and easy to make at home! At this…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 16, 2013 at 3:00pm

I had such a hard time deciding what to focus on for this post. The pineapple salsa, so gorgeous with fish, also gorgeous made with ripe-right-now peaches? Or the tostones (twice-fried plantains), which are so easy to make, although if you’d rather have fresh corn tortillas, those would be heavenly too? Or the black bean…
