Miso Ginger Salmon

I pulled a few recipes from deep in the archives that have stood the test of time. I’ve also got my new favorite savory vegetable pie and a stack of not-to-be-missed pancakes. Happy cooking!

Coconut Lime Chickpea Curry

Coconut Lime Chickpea Stew

This is everything you want in a cozy stew: filling, flavorful, and nourishing. Chickpeas do double duty in this dish by serving as its foundation as well as a crispy topping to scatter on at the very finish.

Baked Chicken Parmesan

This recipe definitely falls into the “oldie but goodie” category. It was always a hit when my kids were little and still satisfies to this day. I always serve it with a side of marinara sauce and love this roasted broccoli on the side, too.

Savory Winter Vegetable Pie

Give this brand-new-to-the-blog recipe a whirl. It’s made with roasted squash, kale, and mushrooms that get folded into a base of eggs, cottage cheese, and glorious Gruyère. It’s got a very unfussy, whole-grain crust that uses olive oil instead of butter and can be made ahead and reheated.

Miso and Ginger Glazed Salmon

This is one of the best ways to make the most of salmon and is simple to prepare. 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.

Kimchi Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Some would say a simple grilled cheese is a perfect food, so why mess with it? It’s a good point, but I’ve found piling kimchi onto a grill cheese sandwiches adds appealing heat and tang that plays deliciously off the richness of melted cheese. If you are dead set against kimchi, you can add pickled jalapeños or another pickled cabbage instead. Make this for lunch or a light supper.       

Whole-Grain Blender Kefir Pancakes

This recipe is proof that pancakes aren’t just for weekends. These are super nutritious and all done and then poured from a blender. Store leftover pancakes in the fridge and reheat in the toaster oven.

Simple Pot of Black Beans

I never regret getting a pot of beans simmering on the stove. It’s a terrific staple item to turn into meals during the week: Add to tortillas for breakfast tacos, scatter over salads, toss with cooked rice, or whirl up a quick soup.
