Turnip Rösti

As you know by now, we love Rösti.  However, we also like to play around with concepts to make them healthier.  Thus, we got the idea to try making Rösti with turnips.  Due to some fairly substantial differences between turnips and potatoes (especially the Russets we like to use to make the more classic version of…

Roasted Yellow Bean “French Fries”

It’s summer, which is synonymous with “Grilling Season!” Grilling often implies burgers, and burgers often bring French Fries along as their sidekick. If you’re looking to break the chain though, these delicious yellow string beans are a great, low calorie substitute for French Fries. They look similar on the plate, but they are rich with…

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Summer is definitely here. And that means fresh corn! There are so many potential ways to cook corn, but one of my favourites is also one of the simplest methods. Unlike other methods to cooking corn, grilling makes for a crispy yet tender texture, and it adds a smoky richness to the natural sweetness of…

Rhubarb Risotto

We have a ton of garden fresh rhubarb that my wife’s grandpa gave us, so there will be a lot of savory rhubarb recipes coming. This recipe one was a true experiment. By that, I mean that I said to my wife before her first bite, “This could be good or absolutely terrible. There is…

Grilled Beets

As you’ve probably seen from all of the beet recipes on the website, we love beets and are always looking for new ways to work them onto our plates. This idea came from someone I work with who is also a beet enthusiast. I would have never thought of this on my own, so I’d…

Roasted Eggplant and Feta Mashed Potatoes

I like this dish as an alternative to plain mashed potatoes. It’s lower calorie, it’s more nutritious, and it has a distinctly nutty/eggplanty flavour that pairs exceedingly well with rich entrees like Pan Roasted Mutton Loin Chops, Horseradish Steak Roulade, Grilled NY Strip Steak, or even a Greek marinated chicken. It would also likely be…

Swiss Chard and Summer Squash Angel Hair Pasta

Tonight, we had dinner with a close friend who brought over a bunch of delicious vegetables from her CSA. So, we’re making use of these extremely fresh vegetables. This is a simple pasta and veggie dish that can be used as a side or even a main course if you enhance it with some diced…

Broiled Tomatoes

This is a dish that my wife and I learned about in Bridport, UK. We were staying at a fantastic bed and breakfast (if you’re ever in that area, we highly suggest it…it’s on A35 and Asker Mead), and the owners cooked us breakfast in the morning. Anyway, among the tremendous feast of fresh fruit,…

Grilled Zucchini

This side dish is pretty self explanatory, so I’ll skip a formal introduction. I like to make this whenever I’ve already fired up the grill (take a gander at Grilled Swordfish, NY Strip Steak, Gorgonzola Stuffed Steak, and Grilled Pork for a few ideas). This is a simple addition to any meal, and there is…

Roasted Cauliflower Wedges

Cauliflower is an extremely versatile vegetable. So far, we’ve used it to make Mashed Cauliflower, Fried Rice, Paella, and used it as part of a medley in a Grilled Veggie Pillow. However, tonight, we’re going back to basics and just taking cauliflower as it comes. No fancy tricks or gimmicks…just pure enjoyment of a excellent…

Grilled Veggie Pillow

It feels like my first recipe post was yesterday, so it’s a little surreal when I see that this one is my 100th! For a milestone post, it only seems fitting to share with you a staple from my childhood. My mom loved to grill…and (like postal carriers), no weather would stop her. If it…

Grill Bread

When I stepped outside this morning, I could hear the wind through the trees saying, “GRILL TONIGHT!” It was just that sort of day. Mild temperature, blue skies, and begging for an outdoor cooking adventure. So, every component of tonight’s meal was grilled (and will be posted in due time). However, this recipe highlights a…
