A wonderfully balanced vinaigrette that has that sweet and tangy thing going on, making it suitable for all sorts of salads. Greek honey has tons of extra flavor so it’s worth swapping out your usual honey for this imported ingredient.
This is an emerald green wonder – gorgeous, fresh and nutritious, the perfect pasta toss.
Here in Montreal, Aux Vivres is a beloved vegetarian restaurant. They’re famous for their Dragon Bowl, which is bowl food at its best. I created my own special bowl food meal with my Mecca Bowl. It’s for vegetarians or anyone with good taste (you can and add either grilled chicken or grilled tofu as the protein component). The colourful arrange of healthy grains, stunning beets, carrots, atop baby greens and anointed with uniquely delectable ginger-garlic vinaigrette I invented makes this a riveting lunch classic in the restaurant chez food (i.e. your kitchen). The trick is to have things ready-to-go and then the assembly is 1,2,3 quick!
Healthy and tasty, easy going, complex carbs. Serve chilled or warm. This big batch is on hand for quick lunches (poached salmon steak or herb infused chicken breast?) or put it alongside an omelette. It is good food, always at the ready. Complex carbs? Sure but nothing else about it is complex. Feel free to change the grains or use other sorts of canned beans or chick peas.
You can use any oatmeal recipe you like or mine Old Fashioned Irish Oatmeal to match up with this easy, oven-method of slow-roasting cranberries. A touch of coconut oil and maple syrup and the oven heat, and they turn out densely flavorful, deeply scarlet and are simply amazing, as a compote or unique topping on oatmeal (ice-cream or cakes).
Pears are overlooked in autumn, as apples take top billing but they are so elegant. Small pears, poached in Earl Grey Tea, with some honey and vanilla are sublime. You can also make these in red wine or apple cider instead of the tea, or use green tea and add orange zest to the brew.
I love pumpkin pie, sugar and spice and all things both nutritious and comforting. This bowl of hot cereal has it all. It reheats during the week for quick but staying breakfasts. If you have canned pumpkin on hand (maybe from making pumpkin muffins), it goes to a wonderful cause in this amazing oatmeal.
A bit of Patak’s to the rescue, a few spices, a few vegetables and a nutritious, delectable entrée in minutes. Meat eaters and vegetarians will finally agree on something: this is delicious and easy. It has a ton of vitamens and if you added steam kale, spinach or broccoli, you would be more than all set.
Mixed grains, pine nuts, and cranberries and that great feeling that comes with good food, well made, and enjoyed.
