Re:Black Rice Salad with Sugar Snap Peas and Avocado

I needed a change of pace from quinoa salads, and we found this. SO good. For dinner we serve it with grilled sesame chicken. Then I take it as a main for lunch the next day. This is quite possibly my favorite grain salad.

Re:Parsnip & Parmesan Soup

Made this for first course for Christmas. A little on the sweeter side than I expected, but the flavors were great. I love it and in-laws liked it, but they unfortunately aren't used to the flavor of parsnip.

Re:Jewel Roasted Vegetables

These roasted veggies are beautiful. I love Ellie's recipes because they are always both healthy and satisfying. During the cooler months when comfort food can way you down, we usually make a big batch of these and have with dinner then use the leftovers for the rest of the week to throw with any protein for a healthy lunch.

Re:White Wine Smashed Potatoes

This is a dish we make at every Thanksgiving. It's nice to have something brighter and less heavy than all the rest of the typical Thanksgiving sides. Only downside is that the cook time is usually longer and usually requires a bit more liquid, so we add stock.

Re:Yucatán Pork Tenderloin with Jicama, Avocado & Red Onion Salad

The rub on the pork is spicy enough to need to cut the heat with the slaw, which pairs perfectly with the meat. This is one of my favorite summer dishes when I really don't care for carbs and and want something hot off the grill and cool from the kitchen. I've recommended to several friends and they all rave.

Re:Tandoori Chicken

Have made this several times and always amazing. We use chicken thighs because they make the best leftovers as far as moist chicken is concerned. Never used food coloring, and with all the tumeric, it's plenty yellow for my liking. I marinate in plain goat yogurts and it's honestly my favorite grilled chicken recipe ever.

Re:Spinach and Chickpea Curry

This is a great weeknight dish. Fast, simple, flavorful, and FULL of healthy veggies. I like to serve with fine cooking tandoori chicken, but this dish can also stand alone as a main if served with rice.

Re:South Indian-Style Vegetable Curry Recipe

This is my go to dish in winter when cooking for my vegetarian friends. Never fails. The ingredient list is a bit long, at first, but now that we cook a lot of indian dishes, they're really just simple spice stables. I like to garnish with plain goat yogurt and an extra dash of garam masala. This may be one of the few vegetarian dishes that is hearty enough to keep my meat loving husband satisfied.

Re:Slow-Cooker Five-Spice Pork with Snap Peas

We make this a few times every winter, and it's always a hit. We serve it over white jasmine rice, usually. The meat is tender. You get a good serving of healthy veggies during winter. Not only does it taste great, but the fivespice in the slow cooker makes the house smell great, too.

Re:Lamb Shanks en Papillote with Leeks, Carrots, Rosemary, and Orange

We've made this dish several times. It's the first recipe I think to make on that first crisp, fall weekend. Sometimes we serve with a mash of some sort, sometimes we serve with bread. But always seem to find a reason to buy some good gin and make a martini with the leftover vermouth... Worth the time and effort. Love the short ingredients list.
