This pesto is deliciously green and nutty, packed with toasted cashews and large handfuls of spinach. Enjoy it as a pizza topping, for breakfast with eggs and potatoes, or my most recent preferred way of eating it, with spaghetti squash.
Kabocha squash slices are coated and roasted with a miso based sauce, then topped off with a hit of fresh lime juice, cilantro and sesame seeds. So easy! So tasty! So deliciously addictive!
Our maple tree has officially been stripped naked of it’s leaves and more water has fallen from the sky than I ever thought was possible. We are definitely in the middle of fall! Cabbage has been making it’s way into nearly every meal along with all of it’s seasonal companions. At this time of year this is my go to hash… the sweetness from the apples compliments the bitterness of the cabbage and it’s all cooked up with tender potatoes and sautéed onions. The perfect fall dish that can be eaten for any meal!
Aromatic ginger and garlic, salty tamari, spicy sriracha, these green beans are so delicious I could eat an entire pan of them. You blister the green beans in a hot pan, then add in the garlic, ginger and green onions, next… working quickly you add the sugar, tamari and sriracha. This is where the dish transforms from being boring old green beans to coated in a sticky sauce packed with deep caramelized flavours.
Sweet, spicy, salty and sour this dish is saucy and comforting. The eggplant is sautéed until cooked through but still has good texture, the sauce is reduced and the eggplant is added to the sauce to soak up all the delicious goodness. The perfect meal during this time of transition, when heat loving eggplants and tomatoes are slowing down their production and I’m not quit ready to dive head first into fall ingredients.
Creamy and aromatic this coconut green bean curry is rich yet summery. Here I use the most delicious sungold cherry tomatoes (but you can use any tomatoes you like, even canned ones work well) as a base for the curry and cooked them down to concentrate their flavour. They give the curry a beautiful bright colour and lend a nice sweetness to the dish.
Perfect for a summer picnic or a backyard BBQ, this potato salad is far from the common mayonnaise based salad of my childhood. Toasted spices, lemony red onion, waxy fingerling potatoes and peas that burst in your mouth! So delicious we’ve eaten it with dinner three weeks in a row!
French fries definitely fall into the category of my top five favourite foods. That may be a bold statement, but I don’t think I could ever get sick of a good french fry. I like to use russet or kennebec potatoes. Both varieties have good starchiness, which lends to perfect final texture: crispy exterior, fluffy interior. A great accompaniment to a burger or a sandwich, and equally amazing on their own. I could eat an entire plate, maybe even an entire tray of these fries.
