Thai Noodles with Broccoli Peppers & Tofu by Parsley In My Teeth 1

Thai Noodles with Broccoli Zucchini Peppers & Tofu

While shopping at Trader Joe’s the other day, their new products shelf had Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Pasta. It’s gluten free and has 5 grams of protein per serving so I decided to give it a try. I’ve been in the mood for Thai recently, but rather than going my usual spicy route, I decided to make a mild sauce using almond butter instead … Read More...

Grilled Romaine Tomato & Onion Salad by Parsley In My Teeth 7

Grilled Romaine Tomato & Onion Salad with Toasted Pepitas

On a chilly day, there are times when I don’t feel like eating a big, delicious, nutritious salad because it’s ….. well, cold! There’s no need to skip the salad when you can grill everything. I received a George Foreman grill for Christmas and decided to put it to good use. Even though I associate this appliance with grilled meat, it works really … Read More...

Ethiopian Spiced Chickpeas 2a

Ethiopian Spiced Chickpeas

I remember the first time I had Ethiopian food. My husband (then boyfriend) took me to the Blue Nile in Detroit’s Greektown neighborhood. I was intrigued by the intoxicating aromas wafting through the entrance. I never smelled anything quite like it – a combination of cayenne, clove, cinnamon, ginger, and coriander with other spices I wasn’t familiar … Read More...

Kiwi Feta Mint Salad 2a

Kiwi & Mint Salad with Pineapple Dressing

When I presented this to my husband for a taste test, he looked at me quizzically and asked, “Shouldn’t you be cooking something hot?” Then he ate it and asked for a second plate. So why am I making a tropical fruit dish when it’s -18 degrees outside? Because somewhere in the world there are people on the beach running their toes through the piping hot … Read More...

Blueberry Buckwheat Breakfast 1a

Blueberry Buckwheat & Banana Breakfast Bowl

No, I didn't plan out the name of this recipe.  All of those B's were an accident.  A delicious one! I mentioned in the Black Eye Peas & Buckwheat Vegetable Soup post that I developed a crush on buckwheat and I mean it.  It seems to be working its way into almost every breakfast, lunch and dinner I have lately. Try using buckwheat … Read More...

Black Eyed Peas & Buckwheat Vegetable Soup by Parsley In My Teeth 5a

Black Eye Peas & Buckwheat Vegetable Soup

After a nice, long holiday, I should be eager to jump back into work. It’s not happening. The weather this month has been uncharacteristically pleasant and I’m spending as much time outside as possible before the inevitable deep freeze sets in. I’m easing myself back into a productive schedule, and this soup is about as easy as it gets. Just … Read More...

Squash & Buckwheat Salad 13a

Roasted Kabocha Squash & Buckwheat Salad with Dried Cranberries & Honey Dijon Dressing

I’ve been staring at this squash for a couple of weeks. It’s been sitting on the kitchen window sill to ripen. My husband picked it up. I’ve never had this kind of squash before. I didn’t know what to do with it. How can I create a recipe when I have no idea what the main ingredient tastes like? I realized I was making this much harder than it … Read More...

Vegetable Chips with Hummus 3

Beet Carrot & Sweet Potato Chips with Hummus

I never made homemade chips before and thought it would be a breeze. There were only two things standing in my way: (1) my fear of the mandolin; and (2) a temperamental oven. Regarding the former, years ago my husband wanted to buy an industrial strength mandolin for no apparent reason. We brought it home and during the first use, he cut off the … Read More...
