Paella Quinoa Patties with Garlicky Spinach

The idea for paella quinoa patties came about when I was catering a dinner over the summer. I already had sort of a Spanish theme going on with garlic chicken as the main dish, and was looking for a fun but healthy side dish. So, I made some quinoa with the flavors of paella – [read more →]

I am absolutely loving our CSA so far. It’s been fun learning how to cook new-to-me veggies, and I love the surprise of it all. The only thing I haven’t been quite as excited about is the amount of lettuce we often get. It might sound kind of weird, but Matt and I hardly ever [read more →]

Having already tossed around the idea of a vegetarian rice biryani dish as a side, I was thrilled when he emailed [read more →]

Ensalada Rusa
