Baby beet salad
Earthy baby beets are poached in a warm liquid of white balsamic vinegar, vibrant herbs, spicy peppercorns and a touch of agave to bring out the natural sweetness of the beets. Tart granny smith apple slices add a burst of freshness while spiced candied nuts add texture and crunch. Homemade almond chèvre rounds out this beautiful salad adding a creaminess to the dish. A balsamic dressing made with fresh herbs, lemon, and agave is drizzled over the top.
Fresh rosemary bread is served alongside.
coconut curry scallops with a cucumber snap pea salad
Caramelized seafood mushroom scallops sit in a delicious bath of homemade green curry broth. Aromatic lemongrass freekeh acts as the perfect vessel, soaking up that slightly spicy, homey broth. Topping the dish off with fresh mango salsa provides that acidic punch that cuts through the richness of the dish while the sweetness of the mango balances the heat and spice from the curry.
Crisp, crunchy cucumber and snap peas pair for a light, fresh salad that is the perfect accoutrement to a hearty main dish.
Miso glazed sweet potato stacks
Asian flavors are the inspiration behind this rustic dish. Sweet potato rounds are painted with a miso glaze and baked to golden perfection. Stuffed between each round are earthy layers that elevate this simple dish to new heights. Hearty buckwheat is toasted to release its natural nuttiness and infused with fresh ginger, adding a warm spiciness. Spiced, candied walnuts add crunch while homemade almond chèvre adds creaminess to round out the dish. A sprinkle of sesame seeds, cilantro and a tamari glaze, top this dish off.
Lime, maple glazed carrots accompany the main event. Carrots are roasted until they are sweet and caramelized in fresh lime juice and zest, maple syrup and tamari sauce, marrying the two dishes.
roasted tomato white bean hummus (snack)
A unexpected twist on the classic hummus. Tomatoes are roasted with fresh rosemary, thyme and garlic, until they are bursting open with flavor. Combining the roasted tomatoes with homemade white beans, makes for a delicious and creamy hummus.
