Ground sumac berries and tahini paste, both staples in Middle Eastern cuisine, are the secret ingredients that bring a splash of unexpected flavor to this creamy soup. To make it extra fancy, try using purple or orange cauliflower for the crispy cauliflower topping.
Don’t be fooled by the simple ingredients list in this salad – it has big flavor from crunchy pine nuts and fragrant fresh basil. A mandoline helps slice the zucchini as thin as possible, but you can also use a knife if you prefer. For added color, try adding cherry tomatoes if you have some on hand.
You’ll save time (and need fewer ingredients) by using one spicy dressing as both a marinade for the fish and a dressing for the slaw. There’s plenty of room for play with this recipe – turn up the heat by adding more sriracha or jalapeño peppers, or toss in handfuls of chopped cilantro and mint for extra freshness. Instead of a grill pan, you can cook the fish on your barbecue or broil on a foil-lined baking sheet.
This recipe yields a generous amount of dressing – either toss the desired amount of dressing to coat the salad lightly right before serving, or serve the dressing alongside so your guests can dress it themselves. Or, you can go the route that many traditionalists take in the Midwest – they pour on enough dressing to lightly coat the salad (we suggest using about half of the dressing) and set it in the fridge to allow the dressing to trickle down and coat the veggies.
Colorful and full of flavor, this gluten-free, grain-free “pizza” features a crust made of cauliflower, garlic, egg whites and cheese – no flour! To save time, prep and roast the butternut squash and mushrooms first.
