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.

Umami Chicken (chicken adobo)

This is simple cooking using pantry basics that requires very little work for the cook. You can pair it with anything you’d like: any grain, salad or vegetable (I’m partial to the Super Seed Salad below). The extra sauce in the bottom of the pan is delightful spooned over cooked rice or other grains.

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.

Oven Baked Vegetarian Tofu Parmigiana

Oven Baked Tofu Parmesan

I’ve heard from many of you that this has been a great gateway for your family to embrace tofu. It’s breaded and baked until crispy and then layered with sauce and cheese. Add steamed or roasted broccoli and dinner is done. Leftovers are tasty a day or two later.

Weeknight Spaghetti with Clams

This has proven to be a surprisingly popular recipe on the blog. It’s simple, affordable weeknight cooking that relies on canned clams and spaghetti. Add a green salad (with this dressing) and dinner is done.

Creamy Banana Date Shake

Creamy Banana Date Shake

This shake is just four ingredients — milk, banana, dates, and walnuts — but truly tastes like a creamy shake to me. Add a small handful of baby spinach before blending for an added pop of nutrition. Enjoy before or after a workout or as an afternoon pick-me-up       

Super Seed Salad with Miso Vinaigrette

I don’t know about you, but I’m craving all things bright and crunchy right now. This salad is SO GOOD and fills the bill. Make it more of a main but adding this simple chicken or a dish of lentils on the side.
