This recipe comes from an Ocean Mist Farms card that my mom saved for years without trying before I discovered it. Enjoy as it is or scoop out the fuzzy choke center to use the baked artichoke as an edible bowl filled with stew or dip.
Pasta with an Asian twist. I know it sounds weird to use Italian pasta with an Asian sauce, but trust me it totally works. This is a great base to add all sorts of veggies and proteins too. I usually do it with snow peas, broccoli and tofu but feel free to experiment. If you are adding a lot you might want to increase the sauce a bit though.
From Smittenkitchen.com, originally adapted from David Schuttenberg. This is just a basic vegetarian filling for tacos and I strongly encourage you to add on all of your favorite toppings (hot sauce, avocado, crema, salsa, etc)
A different way of preparing ravioli - they aren;t baked or boiled but browned in butter, simmered in broth and cream and finished in a broiler with pesto, goat cheese and tomatoes. From Cook's Country April/May 2010.
Make sure to use homeade or store-bought refrigerated pesto. The shelf-stable pesto won't taste as good.
An authentic Chinese dish, that happens to be one of my very favorites. I searched a long time for one that tasted restaurant quality and was easy to make! You can subsitute long beans cut into 3 inch segments for the green beans to make it even more authentic.
Notice that crunchy, granola crust on the bottom? See that soft, crumbly, granola topping clinging on to the lemony cream center? I'm telling you right now, double up, because these creamy lemon oat bars won't last long.
This is like Mexican street corn on the cob but easier to eat and whip up and it serves as a great side for any Mexican entree or with potatoes and eggs for breakfast.Trader Joe's sells delicious pre-roasted corn in their frozen aisle
This is a really really interesting recipe which uses a unique blend of spices. Really, I've never seen anything like it. I initally thought it looked a little "hippy dippy" but gave it a try because I was so intrigued. Glad I did - super delicious and a totally new flavor!
