roasted veggie tacos

I saw this recipe in Martha Stewart Living and immediately thought it sounded amazing. Roasted vegetables on a taco, why had I never thought of this before? It’s simple enough: roast veggies, slap them on a tortilla. Her recipe was for portobello and zucchini tacos and don’t they look amazing? I didn’t just stop at zucchini and portobellos though. I used all of the in-season …

Cilantro Lime Brown Rice

daisi - August 6, 2012

In these warm (understatement of the year) summer months, I’ve been craving light, refreshing meals. This week cilantro was on my brain. I do love me some Qdoba, so I decided to attempt a healthier-homemade naked burrito bowl at home, complete with cilantro-lime brown rice. Inspired by this Two Peas & Their Pod cilantro-lime rice, I decided to make a healthier version by substituting brown rice for white. The …

When I go to the grocery store or preferably, the farmers’ market, I tend to overbuy vegetables. Nothing wrong with that, especially when it leads to two great meatless meals in one week. I know the list looks rather long, but vegetables are pretty cheap and you can always substitute your favorites for what I used in the recipes below. What you’ll need: ginger, honey, …

The return of meatless Monday is back with a fantastic, super delicious, mildly unhealthy side dish. But who doesn’t love a rich and savory side dish full of spinach and cream? I made this for our valentine’s day dinner date (yeah, I’m just now getting around to posting). I served it with garlic butter scallops and wild mushroom risotto. It was a very rich, but amazing meal, …
