Braised Beef Short Ribs: Braise Once, Eat Twice or More | Fresh Tart (Paleo AIP)

Aaaand just like that, it’s braising season. Good, given I’ve been braising all summer long anyhow. I’m a big fan of batch cooking – cooking enough food to last a few meals – and there’s no better way to batch cook than to braise, no matter the season. Whether you cook low-and-slow in your oven…

Soupe au Pistou | Fresh Tart (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

A bounty of garden-fresh vegetables and loads of fresh basil means it’s time for soup au pistou, one of my favorite summer treats. The first time I made it, I was a bit confused by the simplicity of the ingredients: vegetables cooked in water, that’s it? I underestimated the transformative power of pistou, the French…

Ginger-Scallion Chicken with Zucchini Noodles | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

If you’ve lived in other parts of the country, you likely realize how spoiled we Twin Citians are when it comes to grocery shopping. Whether your jam is chandeliers, bulk discounts, cheerful baggers, or mile-long meat counters, there is a store for every style, budget, and palate. (Except wine drinkers, you still have to hit…

Roasted Cauliflower “Couscous” (AIP, Paleo)

Roasted Cauliflower "Couscous" | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

This side dish is a twist on the couscous salad that changed my life. For years, my go-to potluck contribution was a couscous salad, loaded with roasted vegetables, dried fruit, cheese, and nuts. It doesn’t wilt on a buffet and pairs well with barbecued meats and other salads. I made it for my own parties,…

Beef, Bacon & Kale Meatballs | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

I’m a meatball fiend so I make these frequently, eating them as is, wrapped in lettuce leaves with good pickles, served as a party appetizer (with roasted vegetables and cherry-barbecue sauce, pictured below), and/or added to soups. (You know how I mentioned last week that I love crispy shrimp as a garnish for soup? Well,…

Roasted Strawberry-Rhubarb Sorbet | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

I’m a little ahead of the game with a strawberry treat, so tuck this away for a couple of weeks if you’re waiting for the local crop. Or just make the sorbet now because rhubarb is up like crazy, the sun is shining, and any time is the right time for sorbet. I made this…

Roasted Chicken Thighs with Sweet Potatoes, Kale & Herbs

I’ll assume that by now you’ve already been convinced of the glory of chicken thighs over chicken breasts (cheaper AND 10 times more tender and flavorful) and so I’ll spend this space instead advocating for the merits of working ahead. You know those friends who seem to have it all? Fulfilling jobs, active families, a…

Cherry, Kale, Kombuch Smoothie and The Wahs Protocol | Fresh Tart (AIP, Paleo)

Now that *poof* it’s hot outside, I’m suddenly in the mood for smoothies. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them, mostly because they are billed everywhere as healthy and then whoa, they are loaded with way too much fruit and horrible manufactured protein powders. Not healthy. On the other hand, they’re an…

Avgolemono (Greek Egg Lemon Soup)

Avgolemono Soup | Fresh Tart

You might not think of making a pot of chicken broth on a warm summer day, but I suggest it anyhow. There are just so many fast, flavorful meals that spin out of one simple stockpot, for several days into the week, that it’s the perfect summer Sunday move. Plop a chicken in a pot,…
