7-Day Sweet Pickles

These yummy, sweet, tangy pickles take a little bit of work over the course of a week to prepare. They do not need to be processed in boiling water, but are shelf stable and will keep for 1 year. 

Almond Tahini Sauce

This sauce is so addictive. Try tossed with rice or udon noodles with vegetables for a filling meal.

Ambrosia (Citrus Salad with Coconut)

What a perfect winter dessert! Seasonal citrus pairs up with pineapple and shredded coconut in a simple, not too sweet fruit salad. Note that it only takes a few minutes to prepare, but it's best when allowed to sit for a couple of hours to let the flavors develop.

Apple Hemp Muffins

High in protein, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, hemp seeds pack a serious nutritional punch.

Arugula and Asparagus Ribbon Salad

During asparagus’s short season, serving it raw is a great way to enjoy it. Shaving the spears into thin ribbons and briefly marinating them in a quick vinaigrette turns the asparagus soft and almost creamy.

Arugula and Pear Salad

The butterhead lettuce and arugula combine with the pears and walnuts to make a slightly sweet but very sumptuous salad.

Asparagus Mimosa

Delightfully green spears of fresh, tender asparagus tossed in a buttery sauce. Garnished with a chopped egg or tofu and granished with fresh chervil.

Asparagus Vinaigrette

Serve as is, or garnish with a chopped hard-boiled egg or a squeeze of lemon. Preparing asparagus simply, with its best friend the lemon, allows it to shine. 

Autumn Minestrone

If you are a fan of minestrone, you will surely enjoy this veggie-laden version. The kale is a particularly nice touch, imparting a complementary texture as well as a nutritional punch. Wholesome and satisfying, this soup seems to get better in the couple of days after it is cooked. You may find yourself distracted in the quiet of your workday, looking forward to your leftovers.

Avocado Burgers

A unique bean burger that utilizes avocado in the patty rather than as a condiment. A very nice variation on the veggie burger.

Avocado Hummus

Great with chopped veggies, pita chips, or on sandwiches. Yummy!

Avocado Mint Salad

This distinctive salad is just the thing to get you out of a dinner rut. Tender bibb lettuce, torn and topped with avocado, ribbons of mint, and a fresh grapefruit juice dressing pleasantly startle and awaken taste buds. Especially delightful in the months of November through February, when Texas Rio Star grapefruit are in season.

Avocado Salad with Carrot-Ginger Dressing

The carrot ginger-dressing is a snap to make and is the perfect complement to the salad's creamy avocado and soft Bibb lettuce. You'll have extra dressing which works out well because you'll want to pour it on everything!

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.

Baba Ghanoush

Baba ghanoush is a Levantine eggplant dish that's perfect slathered on a slice of baguette, making it excellent picnic food. It's richly flavored with tahini, lemon, and lots of garlic.

BabyCakes NYC Chocolate Chip Cookies

Celebrated BabyCakes NYC  serves up gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, and vegan treats in their bakeries, and this is their chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Balsamic Onion Dip

This delicious dip, with deeply caramelized onion, tart apple, and fragrant thyme, just happens to be gluten-free and vegan!

Beet and Fennel Soup

This fall soup is great hot or cold. Garnish with the fennel fronds and enjoy!

Beet Soup in Roasted Acorn Squash Bowls

This soup is nothing short of stunning. Vibrant. Mesmerizing. It is the dinner equivalent to typing in all caps, and begs to be described with exclamation points. Green! Orange! Red! Exciting! Great for guests, since many people have not seen a squash used as a bowl before. Serve with an arugula or spinach salad topped with fresh goat cheese.

Beet, Carrot, and Apple Salad

Winter vegetables can often seem heavy, but this root vegetable and apple salad is crisp and refreshing, a great antidote to filling holiday foods.

Beets in Dill Sauce

These sweet and sour beets are delicious hot or cold. Serve them as a side dish or add them to a green salad.

Black Sesame Sugar Snap Peas

Quickly steamed sugar snap peas are tossed in sesame oil and sprinkled with black sesame seeds for a bright and crunchy side dish.

Blood Orange Salsa

This is a unique take on salsa, incorporating vibrant blood oranges and creamy avocado.

Blood Orange-Braised Cabbage over Barley

Red cabbage is braised in blood orange juice and aromatics for a very simple, wholesome dinner. Barley is a great winter food: hearty and filling without being heavy, and very high in fiber and selenium.

BLT Salad

Forget what you know about kale salads! Tossed in creamy dressing with skillet-roasted cherry tomatoes, his may be the most delicious kale salad you've had - it really is like a (veggie!) BLT in salad form.

Bruleéd Pluots

Stone fruits are transformed when cooked. The fruit sugars are intensified, and they hardly need any sugar to make an indulgent, but still fairly healthful dessert. They're delicious on their own, but try with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a spoonful of creme fraîche on top.

Buckwheat Noodle Salad

Utilizing Eden Food's rich, nourishing soba noodles made from 100 percent buckwheat flour, an ancient health food. Earthy, deep brown color, delicious flavor combines with shiitake, wakame and delicate onion flavor for a dish that is great served hot or cold.

Butternut Squash Curry

This simple to prepare dish will warm you up with its heady, aromatic spices. If you have a different variety of squash in the kitchen, feel free to substitute it for the butternut.

Carrot Pesto Sammies

If you're like me, carrot sticks get borring pretty fast. Adding hummus and other dips only go so far. I love putting a twist to classic recipes by substituting in other ingredients. Give your tastebuds a new adventure! You won't be disapointed!

Cashew Curry

You can get creative with the vegetables here: use what's in the fridge or what looks good at the store.
