Quick Green Apple “Kimchi” – Recipe

Green Apple Kimchi

As I mentioned in the Tomato and Nectarine Salad, I’ve fallen in love with gochugaru (Korean chili powder). It is spicy, but not so spicy that you can’t use enough of it to also appreciate its fruity, tart notes. I like using it to make quick “kimchi”. I’m putting the “kimchi” in quotes because there is …

“Caviar” Lentil Salad with Arugula, Crispy Shallots and Roasted Garlic – Recipe

Black Lentils with Arugula and Crispy Shallots

Kim Davidson from Pacific Northwest Farmers Cooperative is doing amazing work supporting real family farms that are growing non-GMO grains, beans and lentils on the Palouse Prarie.

Kim asked …

I'm going to be traveling on and off for the next few weeks, and probably won't be able to post as much as usual. I've been doing this blog almost two years now, and since there are a lot more regular readers now than back in the day, I thought I might use this time …

Unfortunately, the day got away from me and I had to settle for a simpler dish …

Repulgo - Pleating the Edge of a Travatho

When you think of bagels and latkes and schmalz, you are thinking of Ashkenazi. The other major group of jews, called Sephardic, are from Southern Europe and North Africa. As I’ve mentioned before, I had the great …

Tomato and Nectarine Salad with a Korean Dressing – Recipe

Nectarine and Tomato Salad with Korean Dressing

Here’s a simple, delicious and surprising salad. Oh, one thing – it is only worth doing if you have spectacular heirloom tomatoes and nectarines. It will be completely tasteless and sad if you make it with hard pink tomatoes and underripe, sour nectarines. You’l be very on trend if you make it; I’ve seen variations …

Zucchini and Chickpea Tagine – Recipe

Zucchini and Chickpea Tagine

The name of this recipe is misleading. A tagine is the Moroccan clay pot with a conical lid, typically used for slow-braised stews, as well as the dishes cooked in those beautiful vessels. However, there is nothing in this particular dish that really needs a long braise, so it is quite feasible to make it …
