Root Ribbons with Sage

Burdok, sweet potatoes, turnips, or other root vegetables would be good substitutes for the ones listed below. Avoid beets though, as they would turn your dish scarlet.

Rustic French Beets

Possibly the most delicious way you’ve eaten beets, this recipe uses the greens in addition to the roots. They’re served with creamy Boucheron cheese and warm, crusty bread.

Salmon with Apricot Salsa

This is a fresh, healthy, and vibrant dish. If you'd prefer to fire up the grill instead of searing the salmon, that would be delicious too!

Satsuma Sorbet

Whoever said icy treats should only be savored in the peak of summer? Satsumas shine in mid-winter. Here's a special way to enjoy them.

Sautéed Artichokes Baked with Mozzarella

Marcella Hazan says, "Whenever I have demonstrated this dish, professional cooks...were startled at how dark I allowed the artichokes to get. But it is only then, when they have deeply and confidently browned, that they develop flavor, sapore."

Sautéed Chicken with Meyer Lemon

This recipe uses heat and sugar to quickly pickle thinly sliced Meyer lemon. The sweet, sour, and lightly bitter pickled lemon adds tons of flavor to this fast chicken dinner.

Savoy Cabbage Chips

This is an interesting variation on the (almost!) ubiquitous kale chip that has been popping up everywhere. Savoy cabbage, being the showiest of all cabbage with its crinkly leaves, makes a very elegant snack.

Sesame Tahini Dressing

This slighty sweet, salty dressing takes a bowl of simple steamed vegetables and warm grains to another level.

Shrub-Marinated Beet Salad

I made this up during the spring beet season, and used shrub because I was hunting for vinegar in my cupboard, but didn't have any. It was a happy surprise!

Simple Strawberry Compote

This two ingredient compote couldn’t be easier! Serve it on waffles, fresh toast, pancakes, oatmeal, or ice cream. When it’s cherry season, try using pitted cherries in place of up to half of the strawberries. And when fresh strawberries are no longer available, frozen would be a great substitute.

Slow Cooker Spicy Red Beans

Who doesn't love slow cooker recipes?

Adjust the level of spices in this dish with more or less cayenne. Serve with greens and cornbread.

Smoky Guacamole

The secret ingredient in this guacamole is smoky and rich mole sauce. Just a little turns regular guacamole into something very special!

Smoky Roasted Cherry Jam

This jam could be served with roasted chicken or pork tenderloin, or spread on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Spiced Chicken and Tomato Kebabs

A marinade of yogurt, orange, cumin, and saffron flavor these juicy chicken kebabs. Served with lime wedges and lavash or pita, it's a special but deceptively easy meal.

Spiced Pluot Crostata

Pluots, a cross between plums and apricots, have an expansive flavor that only gets better when baked with warm spices. This crust is deceptively simple to make, and doesn't require any special skills.

Spiced Strawberry Cashew Shake

This rich and creamy strawberry shake is warmly spiced with vanilla, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger. Don't forget to soak the cashews overnight!

Spicy Beet Crostini

Sautéeing beet greens in olive oil turns them meltingly tender, making them a delicious topping for crostini.

Steak alla Pizzaiola

Canned crushed tomatoes and fresh herbs make a savory, quick, rustic sauce for steak.

Steak and Purple Potato Salad

 

Substitute small new potatoes or quartered golden potatoes for the purple ones, and this hearty salad will be just as good. It’s easily doubled.

Stewed Plums

These stewed plums are lovely to eat at any time of day. Have them with hot cereal or spoon them on toast with some cream cheese or butter.

Stir-Fried Chile Beef and Broccoli

This method of cooking is typical of many Chinese dishes; the beef is quickly tossed in a sauce, and is then placed in a hot pan. No need to marinate!

Stone Fruit Chutney

Serve this chutney with roasted meats or alongside a charcuterie or cheese platter. 

Strawberry Soba Noodle Salad

When the weather turns warm, cold noodle salads always hit the spot. The unusual addition of strawberries here adds a welcome sweet-tart contrast to the salty miso dressing. Serve alongside anything grilled.

Strawberry Sunrise Smoothie

This delicious smoothie is an excellent way to start the day. This recipe also makes incredible popsicles! Double or triple the recipe, pour into molds, and freeze.

Summer Cucumber Soup

This cool, summer soup was insired by Bulgarian tarator, a soup made with yogurt, cucumbers, dill, garlic, and walnuts. This version skips the yogurt in favor of almond milk for a packed-with-flavor, refreshing dish.

Summer Peach Salsa

This peach salsa is nice with tacos and tortill chips, but try it alongside anything grilled, too!

Swedish Rye Cookies

These not-too-sweet, shortbread-style cookies are a great basic cookie to have in your back pocket. Barley or oat flour instead of the rye flour could be interesting here, or if you want something more neutral, regular all-purpose would work too!

Sweet Potato Tempeh Stew

Along with tempeh and sweet potatoes (a perfect pair!), this hearty stew is scented with warming spices and is served garnished with a dollop of yogurt and nutty toasted pumpkin seeds.

Sweet Potato-Shallot Alfredo

 

Gluten-free and vegan, this pasta dish is creamy comfort food that everyone can enjoy. Toss in more cooked vegetables before serving if you’d like – steamed kale or roasted broccoli would be delicious.
