I have no idea why it took me so long to figure this out. I mean, who knew subbing spaghetti squash for vermicelli in Sevya would work. For those of us gluten intolerant peeps, I have to say it’s delicious.
A couple of days back, half way through my lunch of spaghetti squash and meatballs, I was already thinking about dessert. Really, what is a meal without dessert. It doesn’t have to be sugar laden or full of fat. Just a piece of fruit with nut butter would do. But, that was not what I was thinking of then. I wanted a warm bowl of sevya and low and behold the idea came to me. If this delicious vegetable satisfied my craving for spaghetti, why not try making sevya with it. And that’s exactly what I did.
A great way to start this New Year is to make a jar of heart healthy ghee. It’s not difficult to make, it takes a teeny bit of your time and a wee bit of patience. The hardest part is not to walk away from the saucepan towards the end of the cooking time. Your patience will be rewarded with delicious wafts of warm butter swirling around your kitchen and the end product of a gleaming jar of pure ghee. Now, isn’t that a great way to start the year….
Chilly days call for a warm bowl of soup that warms the heart and hugs the soul. This leek, sweet potato and parsnip soup meets that demand. But wait… it’s adorned with a warm crunchy almond, garlic and sage topping that will be hard to resist.
Summer is in full swing, the farmers markets are buzzing and garlic scapes are plenty! An overdose of garlic scapes seemed possible in my realm of things but alas I warn you it was not. Even after two weeks of continuous garlic escapades, I can’t seem to get enough of these very fragrant and pungent herbs. Wait a minute, did I say herb. Is it a herb or is it a vegetable I ask?
