This Saffron Risotto is inspired by the Milanese versions that are lighter, omitting the heavy cream. It’s simple, luxurious, brightly colored and rich in flavor. The vegetable topping is versatile so use whatever fresh seasonal vegetables you have on hand to great this delicious topping.
This salad is perfectly balanced with the exotic blend of ginger and sesame. It’s super versatile and quick to prepare. You can use as many vegetables as you like to turn this into a full vegan meal or add your favorite meat/protein.
Sometimes I add cooked shiitake mushrooms, peppers or bok choy for added texture. Whatever vegetable I have in the refrigerator or garden does the trick. Below is the standard version I make because I generally have all these vegetables at the ready.
Note: Not all soba noodles are gluten free. Look for 100% buckwheat soba noodles when shopping.
Swiss Chard is a vegetable that I keep in my garden year round and I am always trying to find delicious ways to use it up. Swiss Chard is packed with potassium, iron and fiber and it's a bit sturdier than spinach and holds together well in a sauté recipe like this one. The use of anchovy paste here really add a different dimension to this recipe along with the herby flavors of my Healthy On You® Thyme in Tuscany.
1. Mix all ingredients, except the chicken, together in a mixing bowl
2. Add the chicken to a large zip lock bag and add in the marinade
3. Refrigerate for two hours or as long as overnight, if you can
4. When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350°F
5. Line a baking sheet with foil and add the wings
6. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, rotating and turning the wings half way through
7. Serve with sesame seeds and scallions sprinkled on top
Come to think of it, I have been preparing many different versions of Shakshuka throughout my cooking career but just called it something else! This version I have here for you can be eaten anytime of day, but I prefer to have it for dinner because it contains meat-in this case, lamb. You can always omit the lamb or meat in general and have an anytime vegetarian treat.
This is a very flavorful and easy to make casserole. The Moroccan Spice adds coriander, cumin and allspice flavors and the saffron salt is a perfect topper at the end!
I'm loving this delicious, healthy and little spicy spin on your typical minestrone soup. First, I skip the regular canned tomatoes and use organic fire roasted tomatoes to give this dish an extra kick. Instead of pasta, chick peas do the trick here to add a nice texture and a dose of fiber. Ground turkey is my go to when making meatballs but you can all always substitute with another organic, grass fed meat of your choice.
