I’ve roasted carrots many times, but not this fresh. Sweet. Natural sweetness emerges with all freshly roasted veggies, but this time, these carrots are different. Maybe because they’re organic; maybe because the tops were still fresh looking and green.
I liked carrots even as a kid. Mom peeled them, cut off ends, cut in half around the equator, then quartered them lengthwise. Boiled them in salted water, drained and slathered a big piece of margarine over the top, melting it as she laid it on. She knew how to get the food to the table hot!
Fresh steamed asparagus, chilled, then when ready to serve sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, burnt garlic, smoked paprika, pink Himalayan salt and fresh grind black pepper! That’s it. Easy. You won’t want to pass this gem of a recipe by!
A sweet, savory and herbal condiment for veggie meat sandwiches! Or use as a vegetable or bean soup topper. Fresh lime, smoked paprika, garlic and extra virgin olive oil bring it to the finish line a winner on all that counts!
Silken-type tofu processed with extra virgin olive oil, vinegar and spices to create a smooth, flavorful veggie mayo! Use as is, or add a few extra ingredients to make it Supreme! Either way, it’s delicious and will suit all of your mayo needs – especially if you live in an area where store-bought animal-free mayo isn’t available!
Sweet pickled peppers, corn, Kalamata olives and sliced scallion mixed with a garlic and red cayenne pepper vinaigrette. Serve with Ritz crackers. Hot, sweet and spicy! At every cookbook signing I ever went to this was one of the hors d’oeuvres I served and everybody loved it! It’s simple, easy to make and can be made up ahead of time!
