03 Aug Roasted Watermelon “Salmon” with Avocado Crema and Cucumber Radish Chop

Want to blow your dinner companions minds? Serve them up this magical feat of culinary trickery. These slabs of watermelon have been transformed in texture and flavor with just a little spin in the oven, and actually come out looking so much like a piece of salmon that people have to do a double take when you tell them it's fruit. Topped with crunchy spicy chopped veg and a bright avocado crema, you'll have a light and gorgeous starter course that is a perfect summer alternative to the traditional watermelon salad.

02 Mar Purple Kale Salad with Creamy Cashew Avocado Dressing

I can never get enough kale salad, so I'm always inventing new ways to mix up the same old bowl. This recipe was inspired by my new favorite Venice Beach neighborhood watering hole, Clutch, where their Cali-Mex kale and cauliflower salad transported my tastebuds to a very happy place last week. Now when I don't want to walk the three blocks to get it, I can make my own twist at home (but I would still walk a hundred miles for those Mexi nacho fries with avocado crema!). You can make this one vegan by omitting the cojita, but you'll need to up the salt to make up for the loss. [yumprint-recipe id='67']...

Cooking for Luv - Soba Noodle Cake Recipe

15 Apr Soba Noodle Cakes with Pickled Watermelon Radishes, Sriracha Cashews, and Miso Snap Peas

Soba Noodle Cakes with Pickled Watermelon Radishes, Sriracha Cashews, and Miso Snap Peas Yield: 4 Cakes Cook Time: 15 Minutes (Plus 1 Hour for Noodle Setting, 25 minutes for pickling) I luv Soba bowls, so I often tend to make a huge batch of noodles at the beginning of the week to keep on hand in the fridge. One time, the day after overcooking a batch and storing them to deal with later, I found that my Sobas had formed a solid mass in the bowl I had left them in. A flash of inspiration to cut the noodles into cakes ensued, and this delicious dish was born! The crunchy-soft-spicy-salty-tangy components of this dish make my mouth happy, and it’s really pretty to boot. Ingredients 1 9.5 Ounce Package of Soba Noodles (I like the Hakubaku brand for its price point on organic, but others are fine too!) 3 teaspoons Kosher Salt 2 Cups Sugar Snap Peas 2...

13 Mar Jackfruit Posole Stew

Inspired by a traditional meaty Mexican Posole stew, this healthier vegan version develops a ton of flavor in a quick cook time. The hominy has an addicting flavor and texture, the canned beans cut the cooking and prep time, the mock chicken broth and chipotles brings the spice and flavor that the meat usually provides in the traditional version, the jackfruit looks and has the texture of  meat, and the toppings create an awesome crunch creating a somewhat salad soup hybrid. One of my favorite comfort foods, this stew is an easy and hearty one pot meal to warm your heart and soul. [yumprint-recipe id='74']...
