Lemon Garlic Sautéed Asparagus

Sides, Vegetables

This is one of the easiest and quickest veggie side dishes in town, and takes a mere few minutes to prepare. My kinda veggie dish! Asparagus is rich in Vitamin A (for immune function and vision) and Vitamin C (antioxidant), Vitamin K (helps blood clot), fibre (need I explain what that helps) and is packed with folate, otherwise known as B9. Folate … View The Post

Lime Capellini with Seared Scallops

Main Dishes, Sides

I was thrilled to do a cooking demo at the Okanagan Eats Food Show today, and decided to make this pasta for the crowd.  It was hard to settle on what to make but I chose this dish as it embraces a lot of what I ‘stand’ for: moderation and balance (among other things).

Sautéed Kale & White Beans

Coconut Cilantro Lime Rice

Gluten-Free, Sides

I love coconut.  And I’m head-over-heels for anything with cilantro.  Mixing the two in a dish?  Genius. This is a perfect side dish for that delicious curry you have been meaning to whip up, or would make the most amazing backdrop to grilled fish or chicken (perhaps with some fresh fruit salsa?).  Cooking the rice in coconut water gives it … View The Post

Mexican Chipotle Sauce

Main Dishes, Sides

You know those meals that you cook ALL THE TIME….?  Tacos are that meal for us.  Now, we’re not talking any regular taco here.  We’ve been married for six years now, and seriously, it has taken us that long to perfect this dish (I guess that’s what you can expect when a Hungarian and a Ukrainian set out to ‘master’ … View The Post
