Recipes for special diets

  • Baba Ganoush

    When prepared this way, eggplant takes on an incredible smoky flavor. You can do this in the oven, as described in the recipe, on a grill, or even over the open flame of your stovetop. You just want the eggplant to turn sunken and blackened.

  • Shell Beans and Summer Vegetables Stewed in Their Own Juices

    “This humble braise more or less cooks itself. The vegetables are cut into large pieces (quick to prepare) and are meltingly tender when finished. Some might say they’re overcooked, and they are soft, but this only brings out their flavors. Once, when I added some pesto at the end, the familiar flavors told me that I had made a soupe au pisou, only a heartier version.” - Deborah Madison

  • Roasted Summer Tomatoes

    Served with crusty bread, as an accompaniment to the perfect baked/grilled meat or tofu, or as its own main course, you and yours will be astounded at how delicious this beautiful meal tastes!

  • Machine-Free Honey Ice Cream with Sliced Peaches

    "If you've always been a bit disappointed by icy semifreddo and other machine-free frozen desserts, I feel your pain. But trust me - even after sitting in the freezer for 24 hours, this baby is creamy, soft, and seriously good - not an icicle in sight. Delicious as a dessert or on its own, it would also be brilliant in all those places that ice cream works so well. Yum. The only thing is that it is quite strongly honey-flavored, which is great in most cases, but could be a little overpowering as an accompaniment to something like passionfruit souffle." -Jules Clancy

  • Braised Zucchini with Mint and Lemon

    Slowly braised, zucchini turns rich, silky, and absolutely delicious. Just as nice at room temperature if you want a cool dinner.

  • Creamy Mango Salad Dressing

    This is delicious served on a spinach salad or on lightly wilted greens.

  • Summer Squash Gratin

    Slicing the potatoes as thin as possible is essential to the success of this dish. They will turn luscious and creamy. If sliced too thick they'll take longer to cook than the squash.

  • Tzatziki Potato Salad

    This is cool and refreshing, and will become your go-to potato salad.
