Spicy Thai Carrot and Zucchini Salad

Spicy Thai Carrot Zucchini Salad

0
Zucchini is one of those vegetables that is extremely versatile and whether eaten raw or cooked can be completely yum-worthy. This is a great example of that -- zucchini ribbons tossed in a Thai inspired, tangy and spicy dressing. For good taste and attempts to disguise another dreaded zucchini dish from my favorite Schwabe, I first switched out green for a golden yellow. Do you think he knows there...

Carrot Kohlrabi Salad

I only really discovered kohlrabi a few years–emmm, it’s a vegetable. Heh, I was confused — It only sounded like a foreign word to me. It’s a German term meaning ”cabbage turnip”. Okay, doesn’t sound great and it’s not a looker, but it taste pretty amazing! It took me ages before I actually bought one since I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. So my kohlrabi...

Oxheart Cabbage Coleslaw with Apple and Mango

Oxheart cabbage is the one with the pointy head and my absolute favorite cabbage. Actually it’s the only cabbage I buy on a regular basis. It has succulent leaves making it excellent choice for salads like coleslaw and is everyone’s darling for sauerkraut. More often than not, I add it broth-based soups, let it wilt a little, then serve it up. Officially the season for oxheart cabbage is from May...

Purple Cauliflower Salad with Caper-Lemon-Dressing

Purple cauliflower. Is it not beautiful? And you may be thinking “is this really natural?”. Yes, it is! As part of the Brassicaceae family, just like red cabbage, it too can be found in this beautiful hue thanks to the antioxidant anthocyanin (also found in red wine my friends!). No dye, no GMO.

Beet and Carrot Salad

0
Beet and carrot salad is one of my favorites. It’s a raw salad made with shredded beets and carrots. I guess you could also call it a coleslaw. But instead of a creamy dressing it is made with an irresistible dressing made from red wine vinegar, Dijon, and olive oil. Perfect in all its simplicity. There’s also a little garlic, fresh parsley for extra depth of flavor. And a...

Asian-Style Kale Salad with Brown Rice and Smoked Tofu

This Asian-style kale salad recipe is actually more about one of my favorite dressings that I adore with kale. I have so many different versions of this recipe 'cause it's actually a winter staple that we eat in some variation once or twice a week for the entire Tuscan Lacinto kale season. Which sadly is way too short! So about the dressing... it's all about garlic and ginger together...

This Japanese style coleslaw is seriously simple and seriously delicious. Daikon and carrot pair fabulously together, especially in a tasty Asian-style dressing.

If you are not already familiar, daikon is a long white vegetable from the radish family. It’s similar in appearance to fresh...

I have a confession: I have an absolute obsession with sweet potatoes and sadly this obsession of mine isn’t shared with open arms at home. But slowly, one dish at a time, I am building up a gradual win for sweet potatoes. They may never get as far as hearing the “L” word or “oh yes, I’m having a craving, let’s have something with sweet potatoes tonight” let alone...
