I have fond memories of baking ginger molasses cookies with my Grandma Joyce. She knew they were my favorite cookies, so we always made them together. I’ve given them a bit of a upgrade by adding Chinese Five-Spice to & using raw sugar to roll them in before baking. I love how the large chunks of sugar glisten!
What is schnitzel? It’s traditionally a thin piece of meat that is breaded and fried; however, there is no reason you can’t schnitzel your veggies! My vegetable goal this year is to get people to love kohlrabi, so I figured a good place to start is by slathering it with deliciousness! However, I’m baking these instead of frying to make them a bit lighter and pairing them with yogurt and fresh tomatoes to cut through the richness.
I’ve been making tahini dressing for my gem lettuce salads, and thought it would be delicious on sweet potatoes!
I’ve been in the mood for soup…and I have a lot of root veggies surrounding me at the moment. This seemed like a great way to showcase the versatility of the Rutabaga, this week’s Star Ingredient!
Biscuits are a great accompaniment to any meal and are actually easier to make than you think! I love the savory, faintly sweet flavor you get by using cooked sweet potato in this recipe.
Join Chef Diana in the kitchen to make this week’s Mushroom Farrotto (Risotto made with farro) with roasted squash. It’s a healthy twist on a classic dish!
Sunchokes are the tuber cousin of the sunflower. They have a lower glycemic index than potatoes, and can be cooked in the same way as potatoes. Sunchokes are particularly good browned and crispy! This is such an easy recipe, give it a try! ( You can eat the skins.)
Add some spice to this dish with harissa, paprika and cumin. This is not an overly sweet carrot dish so don’t be afraid!
A unique twist on risotto using farro instead of rice. If you don’t have farro you can use brown rice or long-grained rice, just adjust the liquid…but we love the nuttiness that the farro adds to this dish.
Gabriel asked me to marry him over a plate of pierogies, so they hold a special place in my heart. The ones we have in the marketplace are so deliciously simple to make and all they need is a little enhancement. Choose your favorite sausage or tofu and then add yummy sauerkraut!
