Kale Thanksgiving Bread Stuffing Recipe Recipe

Our Thanksgiving table would be incomplete without vegetarian bread stuffing / dressing. I usually serve it as a side dish so it's a great accompaniment to meat and a main course for the vegetarians in my home. 

For this version, I was inspired by green ingredients such as asparagus, zucchini, celery, artichoke, kale, Castelvetrano green olives and Havarti cheese with dill. I used olive bread, a small white onion and homemade vegetable broth I prepared in advance and stored in the freezer for the upcoming holiday. Give this "green" and healthy recipe a try; it might bring a new kick to your Thanksgiving menu.

Artichoke Heart Tart Recipe

10.30.13 by Jackie

The best part of this savory tart recipe is its awesome name. I baked an artichoke heart tart; the cute alliteration made my day.

As for preparation, I made my own Parmesan tart crust, filled it with fresh artichoke heart cream spread and topped it with Havarti cheese with dill. I served it with an arugula salad. Delicious!

It's the time of the year again when I start my detox cleanse. I bought a bag of jumbo artichokes and made gallons of strained artichoke broth. I know it's not very tasty (the smaller the artichokes you boil, the more bitter the taste is) but go for it. As a teenager, Maman (my mother) always gave us the artichoke broth to drink. She used to call it the detox diet drink for smooth, flawless skin, and it does work. Maman would always praise its therapeutic qualities and I guess it stuck with me. Artichokes are a diuretic, so take care if you have any medical conditions, and of course, consult a physician before starting a new diet.

Edamame and Artichoke Appetizers Recipe

I've just touched down in France! We landed a few hours ago and I'm ready to go to sleep, but before heading to my old childhood bedroom, I wanted to share with you a savory appetizer recipe that was inspired by a North African dessert called chebakia. I grew up in a suburb of Paris and I often enjoyed North African treats after school. This takes me back!

I used store-bought puff pastry and folded it in the same manner as the Moroccan sesame-spiced cookie (chebakia is folded in the shape of a flower, fried and drizzled with honey), then used an edamame and artichoke filling. It might look all fancy but it's very easy and delicious.
