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…

Turkish Zucchini Pancakes…Again!

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 10, 2013 at 9:49pm

I first posted this recipe three years ago, but given my recent pancake obsession, I decided it was time for them to return. Since my post, I’ve made them gluten-free with King Arthur gluten-free all-purpose flour and grain-free with chickpea flour. Both fantastic! Zucchini bread is a family favorite, but if you’re looking for a…

Breakfast Salads

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 8, 2013 at 5:00pm

Salad for breakfast is a festive way to kick off a day, as well as to work in an extra serving or two of greens and other vegetables. I’ve set a little summer challenge for myself – therefore these (low-resolution, sorry) Instagram pics (hashtagged #breakfastsalad, add yours if you like!) – to have a salad…

White Bean Salad with Tomato & Avocado aka Power Outage Pantry Salad

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 25, 2013 at 4:40pm

Is your power back on? Hooey what a series of storms. It always breaks my heart to see grand old trees downed, especially if their falling damages homes and cars. I hope that you escaped damage and if not, that you’re back on track soon. After losing power, I’m thinking ahead to the next outage….

Avgolemono (Greek Egg Lemon Soup)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 18, 2013 at 3:24pm

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,…

Quick Pasta Primavera

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jun 18, 2013 at 3:10pm

I raved about the simple beauty of simmering a pot of chicken broth – yes, even in the summer – above. For that post, I gushed about our family favorite Avgolemono (Greek Egg Lemon Soup), tarted up with diced seasonal vegetables and (with chicken broth at the ready) on the table in 30 minutes. This…

You’ve worked late, or have been chauffeuring kids all evening, or were out late with friends. You walk in the door exhausted and starving, craving something more substantial than a bowl of cereal. This hot, fast, pleasantly filling frittata is what to make, especially if you can scrounge a few vegetables from the cooler, whether…

Morel Burgers with Ramps

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 30, 2013 at 11:51am

Happy National Burger Day! In celebration, I present a grass-fed beef/pork combo, laced with ramps and topped with buttery morels and a quick red wine pan sauce. I would have topped it with a fried egg, but given there’s an egg in the mix, I thought that was a bit over-the-top. That said, you could…

Asparagus Soup with Pecans & Brown Butter

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 15, 2013 at 9:49am

Asparagus is of course one of spring’s best treats. Whether steamed, roasted, or sauteed, everyone adores asparagus snuggled up to eggs or salty ham or even better, both! But my personal favorite is butttery asparagus, especially showered with toasted nuts. This soup puts a good amount of asparagus to creamy use, with brown butter and…

If you, like I, set strange challenges for yourself like to eat vegetables for three meals a day as often as possible, you will adore this recipe. It’s a flavor- and color-packed way to start a day, but of course would make a terrific lunch or dinner. In my mind it exists in the realm…
