Use up the last of your summer harvest in this savory mouth watering roasted eggplant and tomato salad! This turned out to be a most delicious way to use up a garden harvest of fresh eggplant and tomatoes. I slow roasted the veggies in the oven and served it over a bed of baby lettuce …

A simple savory soup. The kind of soup that fills a craving and our desire to be better, healthier. A salsa gazpacho! Gazpacho: (noun) A Spanish-style soup made from tomatoes and other vegetables and spices, served cold. I love that this soup isn’t brown too. How did I avoid that? I made sure to keep the colors …

Big Mouth Big Foot Salad

I’ve been told I have both and though I’d argue the mouth one, that might just confirm other’s view points. 😉 My feet clock in at 10-10.5, if you were wondering and I just got back from a couple miles of walking while out running errands and I was really hungry. Extremely hungry. One of …

Raw Food | Salsa and Guacamole Tostadas

Easy lunch and a great excuse to try jicama if you haven’t already. I didn’t even think of Cinco De Mayo, but this would be perfect to take to a party, it’s a snack that even non-raw foodies would enjoy. Also the jicama slices are fresh, not fried and handle the weight of the heavy …

Raw Vegan Tabouli Salad

One of our favorite restaurants here in Portland is the Habibi Restaurant downtown on Morrison. They share generational recipes featuring their Syrian and Lebanese ancestry. Delicious food. We bring all of our out of town guests (that’s 2 so far) to this spot. My most favorite thing to get there besides the vegetarian mezza platter is their tabouli …

Lightly Steamed Summer Squash

Today is 11.11.11! and I’m going to share this blast from the past post. Last night I had a very light dinner of honey toast, cucumber slices, cottage cheese, and some of my homemade fermented sauerkrautSA. It was just what I needed.

Creamy Tomato Soup for Two

This soup turned out really really tasty with perfect texture, color, and flavor. A trifecta for the senses. Also, it is just the right size for my husband and I to share. I tend to ‘get over’ leftovers quickly, even when I really like the dish in question. Making this so it was just the …
