Using a Pot of Beans Part III: Lentil Hummus

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Feb 7, 2011 at 7:42am

This is the same Creamy, Fluffy Hummus – The Way It’s Supposed To Be recipe I posted a few months ago, except substituting black lentils for the garbanzos. That’s the thing with hummus – you can make it with whatever bean you have on hand and it will always be lovely. As true as it…

Broccoli Tofu Stir-Fry

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jan 3, 2011 at 5:13pm

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly magazine. As lovely as lighter fare was sounding then, it is even truer now – right? No worries, this dish still packs a big flavor punch. Feeling weighed down by holiday treats? Yeah. With several days of delicious indulgence to go, I…

Even More In Progress…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 24, 2010 at 9:17am

Ooh, here’s another quick crowd-pleaser from the lovely blog Jenn Cuisine: Pan-Roasted Almonds with Thyme & Truffle Oil. They take mere minutes to make and whoamygoodness, they are insanely delicious. I’m putting these away now so there are at least a few left for my guests. Yikes. The skaters arrived! And both sauces are now…

Grainless Sunflower Sesame Crackers

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Nov 9, 2010 at 8:36am

These homemade crackers couldn’t be easier or faster to make. Who knew that nothing but seeds, water, and salt could make such a lovely, crisp cracker? These have an intense and rich sesame taste, which I love, and which is particularly delicious with savory and cheese spreads. I’m particularly enjoying them with cottage cheese for…

Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic & Crispy Fried Sage (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 21, 2010 at 7:49am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly Magazine. It’s hard to say much more about Sweet Potato Fries than: They are easy. They are delicious. I spotted sweet potatoes at the farmers market the other day and immediately imagined sweet potato “fries,” roasted in the oven until tender and…

San Francisco Part II: The Food, and Crispy Fried Tofu

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 18, 2010 at 7:15pm

Gorgeous, hip, fun, smart, and famously delicious – San Francisco is my dream town. I regret that I was so busy with the BlogHer Food blogging conference I attended that I didn’t get to do much sightseeing. But I did enjoy several fantastic, not-Minnesota meals, and of course incredible California wine. Here’s the overview in…

Coconut Pancakes with Strawberries

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Oct 2, 2010 at 9:39am

Here’s a…thing. Due to health problems I’d been experiencing for the last couple of years (puffy eyes/hands, fatigue, joint pain), and given that I’m otherwise totally healthy (blood pressure and cholesterol-wise), I started experimenting with eliminating various foods from my diet. I started with nuts, then eggs, then dairy. I felt exactly the same. And…

Homemade Applesauce (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 28, 2010 at 5:16pm

I hated applesauce as a kid. (I realize how many blog posts I begin by mentioning a food I hated as a kid. I do it to reassure you, and myself, that picky children often become enthusiastic cooks and eaters. So hang in there if you’re feeding the seemingly impossible.) I hated its grainy, watery…

Fresh Tomato Sauce to Eat on Everything

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 25, 2010 at 8:57am

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago at Dara & Co./Minnesota Monthly.  It’s no longer hot & humid in Minnesota – in fact, we turned on the heat this morning, brrr! – but there are still piles of fat, ripe tomatoes around, just perfect for making this addictive sauce. Thanks to my seasonal pessimism,…

Leftovers for Lunch: Chickpea Flour Pancake

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Sep 13, 2010 at 10:12am

I’ll just cut to the chase – there is no better way to eat leftovers than atop a chickpea flour pancake. The pancake itself is so flavorful, it could breathe new life into almost any topping. It also takes 3 minutes to make – chickpea flour, stirred with some water, fried in a tiny bit…
