VEGETARIAN SHANGHAI RICE CAKES

VEGETARIAN SHANGHAI RICE CAKES

If you've never had rice cakes, you are missing out! They're wonderfully soft but chewy, super addicting, and are great at absorbing sauces when they're stir fried. This recipe is inspired by Din Tai Fung's Shanghai rice cakes, one of my favorite dishes to order whenever I go to Din Tai Fung, a popular Taiwanese restaurant around the world. In Chinese, the name for rice cakes is Nian Gao. They are made from pounded rice, and have a sticky, chewy texture. Think of them as a kind of thick, oval-sh

SPICY ROASTED WHOLE CAULIFLOWER WITH CILANTRO SAUCE, TAHINI SAUCE & CRUNCHY ALMONDS

SPICY ROASTED WHOLE CAULIFLOWER WITH CILANTRO SAUCE, TAHINI SAUCE & CRUNCHY ALMONDS

If you follow the blog, I'm sure you realized that I love cauliflower. It is such a versatile vegetable. However, I never jumped on the Whole Roasted Cauliflower bandwagon. I always cut up my cauliflower into floret and roasted them that way. But now, roasting it whole is my favorite way to go! This spicy roasted cauliflower recipe is the best: the cauliflower comes out perfectly cooked and full of flavor. It’s a crowd pleaser. The flavors and fun and festive. The cauliflower is spicy, the tahin

SKILLET TAHINI, PISTACHIO, ROSE, WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIE

SKILLET TAHINI, PISTACHIO, ROSE, WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIE

The name says it all.... so many flavors come together in this recipe perfectly like they were meant to be together. There's also my favorite aspect in a dish, which is different textures. So let's start with the base of this cookie, TAHINI. Tahini is a Middle Eastern and Mediterranean condiment made from toasted sesame seeds. It’s vegan, gluten-free, tastes nutty, and is simply a staple in every Middle Eastern home. It is a versatile ingredient that is used both in savory and sweet dishes. It m

ROASTED SHISHITO PEPPERS WITH A GARLIC SOY SAUCE

They are also very healthy and a great source of fiber, vitamin C, and minerals. If you’ve never tried these before, you’re in for a treat. Shishito peppers are not spicy. They are mild and tender and slightly sweet. However, one in every ten can be spicy. They are so simple and so full of flavor. While shishito peppers are perfectly delicious on their own with a little salt, I

Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond. Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education. -Mark Twain Cauliflower is a blank canvas. You can flavor it as you like and cook it in many different ways. At our house, we love roasted cauliflower and I have many recipes that my family loves. I’ve made two versions of shawerma in the past: Chicken Shawerma and Beef Shawerma (which I haven't posted yet.) For this Vegan version of Shawerma, I used the spice mix from my Chic

PISTACHIO PASTA WITH ROASTED TOMATOES AND TRUFFLE RICOTTA

I have had the great opportunity to work with Pasolivo. They are an olive oil producer in the middle of Paso Robles, one of the wine regions in California. When I was in Paso Robles this last April, I got a chance to do a tasting at their store in Downtown Paso. Their olive oils are amazing! So to do this collaboration is very exciting for me! Please join me on Pasolivo's Instagram page for a LIVE SHOW, tomorrow at 6 pm Pacific Time. This last trip to Italy brought me a lot of inspiration. One t

It's National Spaghetti Day! Perfect Tuscan bolognese sauce with al dente pasta and beautiful red wine flavors makes for a perfect dish that you will not get enough of. This recipe is so amazing you are going to want to put it on everything. I not only use it on my pasta, but I also love this sauce on spaghetti squash as well. I also love dipping artisan, crusty bread in it. It is so easy to make, about 15-20 minutes of actually working on it & the rest of the time it cooks itself! The most esse

PASTA PUTTANESCA

PASTA PUTTANESCA

Pasta puttanesca is a dish that originated in Southern Italy’s Naples somewhere around World War II. Rumor has it, the Puttanesca sauce was invented and made by prostitutes. “Puttanesca," literally translated to "in the style of prostitutes," was supposedly named because the strong aroma was how Neapolitan sex workers would lead customers to their doors. Alternatively, according to food historian Jeremy Parzen, the name has more to do with the practical use of "puttanesca" in Italian than with i
