Rutabaga, What Is It and How to Cook It?

rutabaga lectin free

Every single time I shop a rutabaga in Whole Foods, the cashier asks me what that is. The problem is that I can never pronounce it the way Americans do, so we always need a little time to figure out how to add it. The thing is I really love to cook with this root vegetable, also called ‘swede’ in Europe, so I wanted to share the ways I enjoy it.

How to Make Real Parmigiano Reggiano Crisps

parmigiano reggiano crisps

You know you are a food nerd when you are extremely excited about the cracking of a Parmigiano Reggiano wheel and sampling of the heart of the “king of cheeses”. It happened this past weekend at Whole Foods, and I’m in cheese heaven. Those samples were the best piece of cheese I’ve ever had. Since I bought a big piece of Parmigiano that day, I wanted to make something that is hard to find in stores, Parmigiano Reggiano crisps.

Italian Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

I realized recently I don’t have many salad recipes on this website, and I decided to change this. I’m making a list of my favorite salads I’ve ever had in my trips around the world, and will try to re-create them. Many years ago when I was living in Bucharest, Romania, my friends and I had a favorite Italian restaurant, and a favorite dish: Insalata di Polo, Italian for Chicken Salad. This Italian Chicken Salad was pretty close to what I experienced in Bucharest, so I’m sharing it here. Continue Reading…

Prosciutto Wrapped Artichoke Hearts

This one sheet pan easy meal was born from another attempt to find ways to eat artichokes. I don’t know about you, but those artichoke hearts – frozen or from a jar – are not exactly the tastiest thing you can eat, and I’m a little bothered by texture. But these prosciutto wrapped artichoke hearts might be the best way to eat them.

Lacinato Kale Pesto, Your New Favorite Green Sauce

Take some green leaves, a lot of extra virgin olive oil, some nuts, a little garlic, add some Italian aged cheese and you have yourself a green sauce that will elevate any dish and will give you those healthy fats and polyphenols you need on a daily basis. The green leaves can be basil, baby spinach, or kale, and oh my, kale doesn’t disappoint.

How to Make my Favorite Nut Butter, Pecan Butter

I’ve been sharing my love for pecans and pecan butter for quite some time, but I took it for granted and never shared the recipe in a dedicated post on this website. This weekend I went to Dallas Farmers Market, and bought fresh, Texas pecans from a farmer, and he had no idea pecan butter is a thing! I just can’t believe that people don’t know about pecan butter, when is in fact the most delicious nut butter out there.

Mushrooms and Napa Cabbage Miso Stir-Fry

I think one of the most important things for my health I learned by adopting The Plant Paradox way of eating (and living) is how to eat more veggies and how to look for creative ways to incorporate greens and vegetables into my diet. And contrary to what some may believe, my diet is now way more diverse than it was before eating the Plant Paradox way. Creating lectin-free recipes is fun and healthy.

Five-Spice Pork Belly with Cauliflower Rice and Broccoli Sprouts

Recently I asked for feedback on Instagram about what you ladies and gentelmen will love to see more on my website in the new year, and some of you asked for more Chinese inspired dishes. I love Asian inspired food, but we all know it is close to impossible to eat Plant Paradox compliant in an asian restaurant. So I made it a mission to create more lectin-free asian inspiried recipes.
