Whole30 and a social life? You can have both as Melissa Urban demonstrates in her latest cookbook, The Whole30 Friends & Family, that features recipes for every social occasion. She shares four scrumptious recipes that will please everyone in your brood, whether they are following the Whole30 or not.
Vibrant in color and loaded with flavor, this slaw is the perfect side for protein. You can prep it entirely at home and take it on the road – or take it camping, as Melissa Urban suggests in her book. If making it ahead, simply pack the salad, dressing and garnishes separately and toss together right before serving.
Melissa Urban suggests preparing this gorgeous fruity crumble with nut and seed topping for a baby shower, but we think it will be well received after a dinner party as well.
A popular Mexican seasoning blend, Tajín is often sprinkled on mango or melon. It contains dried and ground chiles, salt and dehydrated lime juice, so it’s Whole30 compliant. Urban suggests using this recipe for a backyard barbecue, but we love it on an indoor grill to serve on game day as well.
This slow-cooker version of the Middle Eastern classic is given a twist with ras el hanout, a North African spice blend that can include ginger, anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, nigella, mace, galangal, turmeric and dried flowers such as lavender and rose.
