Smoky Tempeh Apple Bites

Looking for all the fabulous flavors of fall in an appetizer? Look no further... I've gotchya covered! Smoky squares of tempeh, baked apples, and grilled onions all stacked into one incredible bite. Let's get this party started! I love Macintosh apples. Our tree is loaded with them. They don't usually fully ripen until closer to the end of September. These were already collecting on the ground, so I swooped 'em up. Macintosh apples are both sweet and slightly tart, crunchy, and juicy. They're delicious eaten raw, simmered into apple sauce or combined with Granny Smith apples and baked into a pie. By the way, you get more intense apple flavor if you combine two or more varieties when making a

Zucchini Boats

True confession - I've never made stuffed zucchini before creating this recipe. I'm not quite sure how that happened (or didn't happen). I've certainly eaten it enough times, and have watched many cultural variations being made but never got around to making it myself. This warm September brings the gift of extending the season for these tender young squash, so I'm putting them to good use! I decided to take a different approach with this recipe because I wanted to make a dish that did not include any members of the Solanaceae (nightshade) family. These include tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, gogi berries and tobacco. While these foods contain a host of antioxidants, vitam

Tofu Scramble

I'm beginning to lose the urge to reach out and slap the person who emphatically says they don't like kale, or chase them down in the parking lot waving my most vibrant kale bouquet screeching, "But you haven't tried MY kale!" Progress. Instead, I just keep upping my kale game, making it a personal challenge to create kale dishes that are as tasty as they are nutritious. When I feel like putting together a hearty weekend breakfast or brunch reminiscent of an old-fashioned country meal, this is one of my go-to recipes. The nutritional yeast, turmeric and black salt work their magic to give this dish the look and taste of scrambled eggs. With a little planning, this plate is simple enough to b

Cucumber and Tomato Salad ~ Four Ingredients, Five Minutes

This is one of the simplest and most flavorful salads to throw together. At the end of August, when cucumbers and tomatoes are growing fast and furious and delicate greens have withered under the heat, we eat this dish a lot! Cucumbers and tomatoes are both hydrating, and you can't beat summer tomatoes eaten right off the vine. Four ingredients. Cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh herbs and vinaigrette. That's it. Add anything else and it's no longer a Cucumber and Tomato Salad. It would just be... well, salad. Don't get me wrong, I love salads. I've made some delectable salads. Some bordering on divine even, and so completely satisfying that's all I wanted to eat for days. These always have more tha

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
