RESET BUTTON SALAD WITH CARROT MISO DRESSING

I consider this the ultimate “reset” salad, perfect for when you’re looking for a break from heavy meals. It’s packed with colorful vegetables and served with a tangy, delicious miso dressing. If you’re serving it for a main dish, consider adding cooked chicken or baked tofu for added protein and heft.

INSTANT POT ITALIAN WHITE BEAN SOUP

Instant Pot Italian White Bean Soup

This Instant Pot soup has been a consistent hit on the blog. For a vegetarian version, simply leave out the sausage or swap in a cup or two of cooked grains or pasta for once the soup is done.

CAULIFLOWER TOSTADAS WITH CHIPOTLE SAUCE

Cauliflower tostadas with avocado, cabbage and chipotle cream with lime slices

Though not exactly traditional tostadas, these are definitely crave-worthy. The dish is on the lighter side, so add a side of homemade or canned pinto or black beans embellished with a spoonful of salsa.

MISO GINGER SALMON

Miso Ginger Salmon

This is one of the best ways to make the most of salmon and is simple to make. Miso is one of those coveted fermented foods that adds great flavor to this glaze.  Serve with brown rice along with a salad of thinly sliced cucumber and radishes tossed with seasoned rice vinegar and black pepper.

LAMB SLIDERS WITH HERB YOGURT SAUCE

My daughter Rosie is crazy for these flavorful sliders, which I serve with greens or sometimes tucked inside warm pita bread. Roasted Carrots make a tasty side dish.

love your recipes, but please…
“roasted carrots such as these,” (not “these ones”)
they are carrots, not ones (what are ones anyway?)
