Zucchini is almost as versatile as broccoli. Just slice it, dice it, saute it, fry it, bake it and voila…kitchen miracles can happen! I really am not a huge fan of cooked spinach because it reminds me of the canned variety I had to eat as a kid. But fresh spinach with just slight wilting is amazing!
The addition of the hot noodles and roasted zucchini brings this salad to another level. And, don’t forget the Avocado Dressing for an amazing taste sensation!
I love soup! Lentil Soup always left me a bit underwhelmed. Therefore I decided to create a new version by adding some more veggies. Next time I make it I will also add some chopped kale or spinach.
YUM! I noticed some great looking organic fennel in the grocery store the other day and picked up some. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it but bought it anyway!
When I was young I remember holiday dinners were always finished with a stalk of fennel and a small glass of red wine for dipping. The licorice-taste and crisp texture always had me looking forward to this tradition.
I decided to roast the fennel, using the entire head (about the size of a fist), without the leaves. The result…bellissimo!
