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) […]

Plant Based Beef Empanadas

I’m a big fan of any kind of food cooked in dough, but I especially love these plant based beef empanadas. Meals wrapped in dough are delicious and filling. You can fill them with vegan meat, vegetables only, or even fruit for dessert empanadas. Empanadas originate from Spain and Portugal. Like another favorite of mine, […]
