Date Roasted Butternut Squash and Chickpeas

Saffron Laced Chickpeas and Leeks
This is a beautiful main course to really impress your guests! The saffron threads add such nice color to the dish while adding just a slight floral sweetness!
Fresh Fava Beans with Leeks and Swiss Chard
Whenever you can find fresh fava beans in their pods, grab them! They are simply delicious! The pods are actually edible and add lots of flavor to your dish. In this dish, I like to use only half the beans in their pods and remove the other half. This adds nice flavor and texture contrasts.
Roasted Zucchini and Chickpeas with Kale and Kalamata Olives
This is a fabulous meal! The roasted tomatoes and onion give it a nice sweetness, combined with the lightly charred zucchini pieces bursting as you bite into them, and then of course the deep saltiness of the Kalamata olives! A full meal on its own or serve over couscous or rice!

Omg! These are amazing and just so east to prepare! The creamy sweet potato mixed with the beans, jalapenos and avocado – wow! A perfect dinner or appetizer! This recipe serves 2 for dinner or 4 as an appetizer.

This is a real Middle Eastern bowl of comfort! Lentils, rice and fried onions all in one bowl – what more can you want!
Roasted Eggplant and Pomegranate Salad
The pop from the pomegranate “jewels” pairs so perfectly with the creamy eggplant in this delicious dish. Use it as a starter salad or a dip for veggies, chips or crackers.
Maple Tahini Baked Eggplants
If you are looking to really wow your guests – this recipe is it! I use round Italian eggplants for a spectacular presentation here, any small eggplants can be used!

An amazing and filling vegetable dish! The fennel comes out nicely caramelized while the chickpeas are just slightly crisp!
Sesame Roasted Asparagus
A nice simple side dish! The asparagus is laced with sesame goodness both from the sesame oil and the beautiful sprinkling of sesame seeds.
