This week should bring healthy foods, still carrying on with the Autumnal flavors and mood.  I over-indulged quite a bit over the holiday weekend, as I'm sure many of us Americans did -- It's just what we do! 

In other news, I'll be teaching an Indian cooking class on Wednesday evening at Sur La Table and I'm so looking forward to it!  The class is full at 16 students.  I'll post some favorite recipes here, later in the week.  I hope you all had a great holiday.

Tempeh Tacos
Corn tortillas
Salsa with fresh corn
Shredded cabbage and carrot slaw
Cesar salad with avocado, tomato and croutons
Stuffed shells (tofu and ricotta mixture) with sun-dried tomato sauce 
Trimmed broccoli
Romaine salad with radish, sprouts and toasted pumpkin seeds

Mini sweet potato quiches (as seen in photo above)
Baby green salad with lemon, capers and red onion


Vegetable fried rice with toasted cashews and fresh cilantro
Steamed spinach with garlic

Black bean soup with lime and chive crema
homemade corn chips
fresh pineapple and mango dessert ceviche


  1. Ooh that looks super yummy! And you're teaching a class at Sur la Table? That sounds so awesome and like so much fun!

  2. That photograph is insane. I want to have those shells wrapped around scrabbled eggs.....and have someone make it for me before I get out of bed. Winter is here!
