Curtido

Today’s recipe is called Curtido which is a dish I had never heard of. It is Salvadorian coleslaw that can sit in the fridge for a couple of weeks and begin to ferment, similarly to kimchi. There are not too many ingredients required, simply just cabbage, carrot, onion, jalapeno, oregano, salt, vinegar and water. Essentially…

Fried Capers (Served on Pasta)

Today’s recipe is actually going a little backward in the Brave New Meal book. The recipe is the Fried Capers which are part of the previous section (Soups & Salads) of the book. I had skipped it because, at the time, I wasn’t sure what to serve them with. But I made them now and…

Pumpkin Spice Roasted Carrots

Well it’s officially fall! That means it’s pumpkin spice time! Now you may be thinking, “isn’t that more of a dessert and coffee thing?”, and you are right.. usually. But putting a little pumpkin spice on some vegetables before roasting is so incredible. Trust me. My go-to seasoning for roasted veggies is typically just olive…

Dan Dan Noodles

I feel like I say this every month, but August has flown by! I have made so many delicious things and I can’t believe this is the last one. Not to worry though, I have lots coming up in September, so be on the lookout for that! Also, with a new month coming up, that…

Rice Paper Dumplings

You know I am always looking for fun food trends. I saw this on TikTok a couple weeks ago and wanted to try it. These are called Rice Paper Dumplings (video here and full recipe here). This is a great vegetarian/vegan recipe to try. Essentially, these have a spring roll filling made with cabbage, carrot,…

Chicken Fajitas

I know I just made tacos last week (check them out – Buffalo Broccoli Tacos) but today is National Fajita Day and I had to celebrate! I just love Mexican food so I will use any excuse to cook some up. I decided to make a relatively traditional fajita with some chicken breast. There was…

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken parmesan is such a comporting Italian dish. You have the crispy breaded chicken, rich tomato sauce and then beautifully melted cheese. It’s so delicious. With that being said, I’ve never made it myself because of religious dietary restrictions. I eat chicken and cheese but not supposed to eat them together. However, over the past…

Smoothie Popsicles

If you ever make too much smoothie, and don’t have anyone to drink it, why not turn it into popsicles! This is a great way to repurpose your drink and turn it into a super refreshing summer treat. The best thing about this is that you do not need any extra ingredients – just need…

PB & Fruit Smoothie

I’ve been eating quite a lot of berries recently, specifically blueberries. They’re just so good – taste-wise and nutritionally – and they’ve been on sale recently so I like to always have them on hand. A few weeks ago, I posted the incredible Blueberry Cheesecake French Toast and today I’m back with another blueberry recipe!…

Veggie & Pesto Flatbreads

I got a great weekend recipe for you! These are delicious vegetable & pesto flatbreads. I used whole wheat pitas which were the perfect base for this. These would be good to serve to guests or just to have as a lunch for yourself. Don’t get me wrong, I love super cheesy pizza, but sometimes,…
