Use this on pita bread sandwiches, salads, on top of cream cheese and toasted bagels, almost anything. You may find this mixture in a Middle Eastern market but it won't compare to homemade.
It's just toasted spices (use a cast iron skillet) and then a coffee mill or blender as your spice grinder.
This recipe is a rainbow of tastes and hues that makes summer last a little longer or brightens up a winter palate. Serve it as a side or in a bowl, topped with some protein of your choice, (chunks of rotisserie chicken or grilled tofu) for a quick and trendy all-in-one meal. Bulgur is easily ‘cooked’; prepare it by steaming it (cover an inch of two with boiling water and let it sit an hour. Fluff it with a fork; it’s ready to go).
Sunny, simple and flavorful – what else would you expect from a quick Greek fish recipe? Have your fish monger gut and trim the fish if you prefer filets over whole fish. This is perfect whether you choose bass, snapper, sole or even wild salmon.
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!
This is a kinder, gentler chilli, replete with all the fixins’ that makes this a staying meal but one that’s light on the heat. Sweet paprika goes a long way in the flavor department; the lean turkey, mix of fiber-rich beans and other goodies ensures this dish will become a dinner-time repertoire staple. You can opt for vegetarian with this recipe by swopping out the ground turkey for browned ‘hamburger’ tofu that is available in most health food stores.
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).
