Giardiniera Italian Pickled Vegetables

We’ve been buying giardiniera (jar-din-AIR-uh) Italian pickled vegetables for years. But, after making these, I will always make it at home. This recipe has a lot of variations to suit your taste or cravings. Vegetables that can be made into giardiniera include cauliflower, carrots, bell peppers (of all colors), onion and celery. Flavor adding garlic […]

Triple A Summer Salad with Ditalini

Triple A Summer Salad combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, but especially the “A”s: arugula, asparagus and artichoke hearts. The asparagus is sautéed to al dente, with a soft outer bite but still slightly crunchy insides. I add the artichoke hearts cold from the refrigerator. The arugula (along with the rest of the salad) […]

Peppery Polish Carrot Soup

This sweet, peppery Polish carrot soup is adapted from a recipe I came across on Instagram. I changed the ingredients up quite a bit, adding more vegetable broth, substituting chickpeas for the original beans (which I couldn’t actually interpret in the Polish recipe). Although I created my own recipe instructions, I did stick to the […]
