GREEK CHOPPED SALAD WITH CUMIN FRIED CHICKPEAS, TAHINI MINT DRESSING, + VEGAN FETA - Wholehearted Eats. For whatever reason, salads are something I don’t share that often on the site.


Yet in all honestly, they usually go down at least a couple of times a week in our home along with typical Buddha bowls, burrito feasts and dahl nights. With the weather starting to brighten up (a little, but not much in Vancouver), we are definitely craving more of the fresh crunch and crispy veggie vibe and less of those warm cozy winter feels. Last weekend we got the patio all cleaned off, set out fresh pots of pansies, and made good headway on our new herb garden. One of the driving forces behind my desire for a fully stocked herb garden this year was knowing that my friend Lily’s herb and floral themed book, Kale + Caramel Recipes for Body Heart and Table, was coming out on May 2nd. I’m sure many of you are familiar with Lily’s site, Kale and Caramel. Kale + Caramel Recipes for Body Heart and Table is no exception. Serves 4. 3 Tbsp. 1/4 Cup Tahini 1/2 Cup Water 2 Tbsp. Make the Chickpeas. Oil-free Pesto Tomato Chickpea Salad - Vegan Gluten-free.

We’ve been eating it this week, first as a salad on its own, then as a side dish, and the leftovers made their way on top of hearty sourdough toast – all equally delicious and so fresh. There’s a few things to be said about the bright orange sauce that completes this summery veggie tangle. The color comes from Spanish smoked paprika, which is one of my most reached for items on the spice rack. The spice, which comes from hot peppers that have been smoked dry and then ground, can add just the right amount of deep, savory flavor to so many dishes. It yields a warming, complex flavor, but isn’t as hot as pepper flakes or cayenne, so I use it pretty generously.

This particular salad is using the same turnips from this barley bowl. The turnips are roasted with sesame seeds, soy sauce, and honey which makes them just a little sweet which is great when paired with the earthiness of the quinoa/turnips.

Pin it! I follow a lot of the fluffy and typical cute animal Twitter/Facebook accounts. I love stuff like this. I also get in a good half cry about every other day when I see a photo or video of an animal being reunited with a sibling or its favourite human, or stories of an abandoned/mistreated animal finally finding peaceful refuge. Frequent contact with any number of species helps you understand some of the more important tenets of humanity, I think. When we adopted our little gal Cleo through a local rescue organization, we were able to do some digging into her past through some Facebook posts and timeline updates.

Si vous faites partie du fan-club du quinoa aussi ! Cette petite graine, qui n'est pas une céréale, mais se cuisine tout comme, est réputée pour ses propriétés nutritionnelles mais a tendance à être boudée par les novices pour son goût. Pourtant lorsqu'elle est bien cuisinée, sa saveur de noisette et son petit croquant sous la dent font merveille. Personnellement je ne la mange jamais "nature" mais toujours cuisinée avec des légumes, herbes, ou encore fruits secs et graines. Salade de Noël, poireau et grenade. Sweet Potato Bulgur Citrus Salad.
