Raise your hand if you know what a whole jicama looks like.
My sister and Vegas both asked me what it was.
This crazy-looking thing is a tuber. They’re more common in Mexico and South American, but you can find them pretty easily in American markets thanks to their growing popularity. Especially in simple dishes like this Jicama & Tajin Salad.
I’m moving slow this week.
Because I was attacked by an octopus.
Ok, so maybe not for real. I’ve been crazy sore and the octopus action helped me with recovery. It’s actually called supping therapy (you may have seen similar spots on Michael Phelps).
I have a thing for tabbouleh.
A thing I didn’t realize until I began to write this post.
Cauliflower rice has been a thing for a long time. I’ve been replacing the bulgur in tabbouleh for a long time. Therefore, it was only a matter of time until – strangely enough – I decided Cauliflower Tabbouleh needed to happen.
Despite the fact that I have have three other tabbouleh recipes on this blog – Quinoa Tabbouleh, Tofu Tabbouleh, and Tabbouleh Pasta – I really don’t eat it that often. Not that it isn’t good… I really love it. I just get lazy. However, this is the easiest tabbouleh hack yet. And it’s good. Strange, but good.
Grapefruit is one of my favorite accent flavors.
No, not just with vodka…
I’ve done a lot of breakfast recipes with grapefruit, but I decided to go savory with this one.
It may sound strange, but after seeing similar items on a few menus around town I decided to create a grapefruit and scallop dish. And oh man, was it good!
I can walk!
With a little limp.
It’s been almost a week since my PRP treatment to regrow a ligament my ankle. I can’t think about running yet, but I can ride a bike! I’ve been doing 10 miles at verrrrry low resistance on the old folks bike. You know the one – with the reclined back lounge chair. No shame!
Pumpkin season is upon us!
Too bad it is still ridiculously hot here.
Despite the heat, I’ve decided it’s time to bring the pumpkin back. Given our new anti-inflammatory diet experiment, I didn’t start out with some decadent baked good. No, this recipe is simple, healthy, and grain-free.
It also sounds a bit strange… but I promise you that adding pumpkin to chicken is good.
Asian food is addicting.
Even without the MSG.
I am a sucker for Italian food. And Mexican. I could eat them every day. Asian food… I don’t crave it daily but when I want it, I need my fix NOW.
When I got Skinny Noodles’ new kale shirataki noodles in the mail, I knew they called for a good Asian dish!
I always look forward to spring.
Except the pollen. Who knew San Diego had pollen?!
Spring food is the best. Don’t get me wrong, I love a roasted winter squash and the orange glow that comes with it. The lighter, fresh spring fare has my heart though.
Today’s #strangebutgood is a round up of some of my favorite spring recipes. Some stranger than others. All good.
In my not-so-humble opinion.
