Minestrone Soup with Rosemary-Garlic Pesto

You can make this hearty and comforting with a wide range of seasonal vegetables. I like to serve it over a scoop of barley. Barley is a great and health grain, very balancing.

Herbal Base Soup - Potato Leek with Marjoram or any fresh herb

This is a basic and simple Potato Leek soup that I use as a base for testing and truly tasting various herbs. It is absolutely stunning using fresh marjoram.

Smashed Cucumber Salad Recipe

I have been working on finding new ways to make good use of cucumbers - which I seem obsessed with growing! Here are some of my favorite zingy and refreshing recipes:

Smashed Cucumber Salad

Cucumber Spaghetti Salad

Fig and Basil Salad Dressing

A stunning addition to any mild lettuce salad. 

2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup golden balsamic vinegar
about 6-7 ripe fresh figs
1 shallot or 3-5 scallions
a sprinkle of sea salt
lots of freshly ground black pepper
a sprinkle of fresh herb leaves (thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley all work well)

Put all ingredients into a food processor. Give it a couple pulses until well mixed and smooth. Use right away over a salad of mild lettuce leaves like romaine or butterhead. This is also great on a sandwich - particularly with arugula as the green!

We also do a Workshop each summer on Making Salad Dressings.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This recipe may have a lot of steps - but each is simple and quick. And it is totally worth the work!

Shitake and Asparagus Sauté

Great all on its own or as a side dish. But you can also add any sort of protein to it or add pasta or rice and make it into a comfort food. The shitake and asparagus flavors truly compliment one another. 

Shaved and Buttered Golden (or Red) Beets

A nutrient, mineral, and anti-oxidant rich side dish. Also great on top of a leafy salad. You can't stop eating it!
