Cauliflower Salad with Roasted Bell Pepper Dressing Recipe

Here's a recipe for a delicious, inexpensive and healthy dish. I prepared a simple cauliflower salad with two entire heads of cauliflower. The wow factor resides in its delicious salad dressing; I made it with roasted bell pepper, which gave a warm and inviting tone to the dish. Additionally, I used pine nuts for extra creaminess and a more complete protein source.

Stay tuned and check out what I pair the red cauliflower salad with tomorrow. If you like meat, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Yam Burgers with Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

I hope you had a lovely, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend. We decided to escape the Black Friday craze and stayed home, baking and cooking a lot. I still had a loaf of artisan bread, a few yams, roasted Brussels sprouts, miso gravy and cranberry sauce left.

The obvious dish that came to mind was to make "yamburgers". I served them in toasted brioche buns with cranberry sauce and a roasted garlic butter spread. They fit my Meatless Monday tradition perfectly!

Truffle Mushroom Risotto Stuffed Baked Apples Recipe

This is an upscale version of risotto that you could offer as a side dish (or main vegetarian course) on Thanksgiving. I love including lightly sweet ingredients in savory dishes, so I came up with the apple and mushroom risotto. I used Jonagold apples, brown mushrooms and truffle butter. 

I think making individual servings give a more elegant look to the dish, so I nested the luxurious risotto in baked apples. The apples almost turned into apple sauce which paired beautifully with the risotto.

Creamy Spinach Risotto Recipe

I've prepared countless variations of risotto dishes in the past, but risotto is so versatile that there are always new opportunities for creativity. I prepared a creamy spinach version when Sunny's friend Maia stopped by for dinner recently. I hadn't started making dinner yet and immediately gravitated to the creamy rice dish. I combined Vialone Nano rice, Pecorino cheese, fresh spinach leaves, onions, garlic and a touch of heavy cream. 

I haven't hit the gym in a month and I won't be able to get back in the groove any time soon as my schedule is booked from morning 'til late at night. So with holiday season right around the corner, I can already venture a guess as to what my New Year’s resolution will be. Although I’m enjoying food to the fullest, I’ve been trying to (at least) maintain portion control.

Warm Bean Salad Recipe Recipe

Warm Bean Salad Recipe

I spent the entire weekend cleaning up our vegetable garden. Even though the weather has been gorgeous in the Bay Area, it really feels like summer is turning into fall.

Today's dish is my attempt to showcase the colors of this season, mixing several kinds of beans. I prepared black eyed peas, French green lentils and butter beans. I soaked them overnight, then sautéed them in shallots and carrots to bring out the natural sweetness of the ingredients. I added blanched green beans at the end and flavored the warm bean salad with a citrus dressing.
