Date Roasted Butternut Squash and Chickpeas

This is just an amazing dish! Great served as a side dish for a formal dinner party or just over some rice or quinoa as an awesome main dish any night of the week! A fun tip...if you have leftovers scoop them onto your salad for a perfect lunch tomorrow!

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!

Lentil Rice (Mujadara)

This is a real Middle Eastern bowl of comfort! Lentils, rice and fried onions all in one bowl – what more can you want!

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.

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

This is such a beautiful side dish! As the cherry tomatoes roast, they become little bits of candy to bite into!
