I love salad but I hate making salad. All the chopping and prep involved, and then you can only eat it that night — you can save it for leftovers. We started making this Perpetual Salad last year and now this is the only way we ever make salad. You literally can have salad whenever you want — and you only have to make it once a week.
This recipe for latkes (or potato pancakes) is from Bubbe, Kate’s grandmother. It’s an everyday food at Jewish delis (I love it with my salami and eggs) but it’s also very traditional for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah, also called the Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish holiday. This year it begins on December 1st this year. I’m excited because we are flying to New York to see Bubbe and Papa for Bubbe’s 70th birthday party. For the first time, we get to celebrate Hanukkah with Bubbe and Papa.
If you’re searching for the perfect summer side dish, look no further! This Quinoa Salad is tasty and simple to make.
It’s a great thing to bring to a picnic or BBQ; it pairs well with meat or seafood. I like it with rack of lamb or lamb chops, steak, roast chicken, pork ribs, or grilled salmon or shrimp.
And yes, it’s gluten-free!
Sprouted polenta is one of my family’s favorite side dishes, the perfect accompaniment to roasted or braised meat.
Polenta is an Italian dish made with corn flour cooked in chicken stock. I use sprouted corn flour to make polenta, as unsoaked corn flour causes vitamin deficiencies, particularly niacin.
If you hate Brussels sprouts, you haven’t had these roasted Brussels sprouts. It was this method of preparation that made my 4-year-old fall in love with Brussels sprouts. They are now one of her very favorite vegetables. It’s all the saturated fat and carmelization that takes them over the top.
Roasted Brussels sprouts are a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving. They’re great dipped in gravy!
I love Twice Baked Potatoes even better than baked potatoes. They are so delicious, and I love that you can load in the high-quality raw fats. This will increase digestibility and enzyme content of your meal. Not to mention, if you are using sour cream and raw cheddar cheese, you get the benefits of fermentation of these foods.
