This salad is the perfect fall companion at the table. It makes you feel full and comforted while also filling up your plate with goodness. You can even serve it warm if you prefer a warmer dish at this time of the year. 

The key to this recipe is that each co...

I have thought really long and hard about releasing this recipe, because kohlrabi is a very unique German vegetable, and can be difficult to find in other places. However, I have seen it pop up on more and more menus around the world, and if you are lucky enough to liv...

Ok, let me be frank, I use the word tapenade very loosely here. Usually tapenade is made with black olives and capers, and processed into a smooth paste with olive oil. I leave this one much chunkier, add garlic, chili, and herbs, and most importantly - I used green ol...

I loooooove falafel. Not the deep fried, burnt tasting kind, but the crispy on the outside, juicy and herby on the inside ones. I love mine baked (check out my fabulously easy recipe here), but don't mind to eat a fried one once in while, if they are done well. But not...

I am always super excited when I find a new ingredient here in Shanghai. A while back I stumbled upon sumac at the Avocado Lady - a red spice from the Middle East. While it’s been a staple in our kitchen for years for all of the Persian cooking we do, it’s not a very...
