Grilled Cabbage + Avocado Caesar

By now you probably know I love cabbage – I wrote an Ode to Cabbage, gave cabbage the Cacio e Pepe treatment, braised it in peanut butter, and created a bunch of slaws like this and this. I’m always shocked when people come over and have never thought to throw their cabbage on the grillContinue reading “Grilled Cabbage + Avocado Caesar”

Grilled Zucchini Salad

I know what you’re thinking: SHE DID IT! Sure did. Found a delicious and simple way to serve up all that zucchini from your garden. DISCLAIMER: I think I killed my garden after the first couple harvests so this zucchini is actually from a friend’s garden but the funny thing about gardening is like –Continue reading “Grilled Zucchini Salad”

Ginger Scallion Cauliflower

If you follow my instagram @TheGluttoness you’ll know a couple of things – I have been addicted to my own Ginger Scallion Sauce and I’m always looking for an easy way to spice up my family’s favorite – roasted cauliflower. **Granted, I usually keep a plate of plain roasted cauliflower for the kids before IContinue reading “Ginger Scallion Cauliflower”

Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Rounds

My first harvest. MAJOR! I planted these soup to nuts – built the garden, lugged the soil, planted the seeds, forgot to label them, wondered what I had planted and then basically hoped for the best. So to come back to a dozen GIGANTIC zucchini felt like such an accomplishment and thus here is aContinue reading “Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Rounds”

Fried Brussels Sprouts

All Brussels Sprouts are NOT created equally. You know what I mean. Sometimes you go to a restaurant and they are like CRACK. The Smith in NYC immediately comes to mind. My dad’s country club in Philadelphia, Green Valley, also knows what’s up with frying Brussels sprouts. We used to love going to his clubContinue reading “Fried Brussels Sprouts”

Blue Cheese + Balsamic Portobellos

Grilling portobellos is a wonderful idea, except when it isn’t. You know sometimes these giant mushroom caps just end up flavorless and soggy. Except of course, for my Portobello Pizzas which are obviously excellent – and now you have this new, super easy recipe, which, for a simple mushroom side dish is totally DECADENT andContinue reading “Blue Cheese + Balsamic Portobellos”

Hot + Cold Tomato Mozzarella

With summer upon us and the local farmers’ markets bursting with gorgeous produce, a tomato-mozzarella salad is always an easy go-to! I have a few ways I like to spruce up this class dish – both in flavor and presentation. Let me just say this – this success of this salad is 90% how freshContinue reading “Hot + Cold Tomato Mozzarella”

Spicy Fennel Salad

The first Fennel Salad we made was a bit involved – it had a base of lemon whipped ricotta and grapefruit supremes. While delicious, those extraneous elements take TIME and sometimes you just want to whip up a quick and simple salad on the fly. This is that fennel salad. SHOPPING LIST: 2 fennel bulbs,Continue reading “Spicy Fennel Salad”

Warm Bacon + Onion Salad

This salad demonstrates how a little bit of bacon can transform your peppery arugula greens from basic to bonkers. This salad is warm and cozy like a fuzzy blanket on a rainy day. Add some chopped grilled chicken or shrimp and it could be a meal in itself! SHOPPING LIST: 1 box of arugula, 1Continue reading “Warm Bacon + Onion Salad”

Tomato and Feta Cauliflower

Here we go again. Another night staring at a few heads of cauliflower and trying to figure out how to make it interesting. Thankfully, my love affair with sun-dried tomatoes IN OIL continues (see the 3-Way Tomato Salad for more sun-dried tomato inspo). SHOPPING LIST: 3 heads of cauliflower, sun-dried tomatoes in oil, feta cheese,Continue reading “Tomato and Feta Cauliflower”
