Parsley-Pea Pesto Pasta

Have you ever wanted to just eat a sauce straight up without the pasta?  This is that sauce.  I would have been just as content just grabbing a spoon and going to town but I figured adding pasta would be more socially appropriate.

Spring Quinoa Arugula Salad Bowl

Spring lunches for me are full of fresh veggies, flavorful herbs and light dressings.  I love to combine spring's produce with light and fluffy quinoa and serve it slightly warm or at room temperature.  Because it is not quite summer, I'm not ready for the whole cold salad thing just yet.  Once the quinoa cools to [...]

Beet Hummus

Adding a raw vegetable to hummus is a great way to boost the nutrition of this already healthy dip.  This hummus features beets which add a vibrant pinkish-red color.  Most beet hummus recipes require you to roast the beets in advance.  I simplified things by using a raw beet with the skin on in my high speed [...]
