True-to-form episode this week, and I couldn't be more excited! Top rock tracks from Brusing, Lavender Flu, Katana Girl in the front! Bedroom pop from Yesses, Old Magic Pallas, Orang in the back... and so much more!
Does the thought of a raw, vegetarian meal make you gag? Do sad salad bars make your blood boil? Read about why BTR's Rebecca Chodorkoff might finally hate vegetables.
By either cultural or nutritional hidden consequences, some foods are not as benign as you've been lead to believe. Why you should rethink making these “Superfoods” a staple of your daily diet.
This dish is a rice stir fry, with ties to both standard stir fry and standard fried rice. So, if you’d like to turn this into a fried rice dish, you can do so easily by adding eggs and even some carrots or broccoli.
Labor Day has come and gone, which means grilling season for many is quickly nearing its end. Yes, we can pause to mourn, but we can also just take our steak-eating indoors. This sweet, salty, and savory steak salad can be made year round as long as you have a saute pan or skillet and a few ingredients. It’s delicious, filling, and about as lean as anything containing steak can be.
The flavor of spinach is much less potent than that of kale, and thus it can be masked more easily by the inclusion of some yogurt and fruit. With kale, this is not so, making it more difficult to blend a smoothie that tastes good enough to drink.
This smoothie recipe includes Greek yogurt, carrots, and peaches for a vitamin- and protein-packed breakfast, snack, or post-workout boost.
This banana fried rice may not replace pineapple fried rice, but it's great on its own and it is simple to whip up. The brunch dish is sweet, savory, and peppery all in one, while providing a good amount of protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins.
After checking out a few farmer's markets, Dish + Drink settles on some watermelon and homegrown cucumbers for a perfect summery treat. After all, National Watermelon Day was this week.
It is Buzz Week here on BTR, and the Magic Bullet has been touted for quite some time now as a kitchen must-have. Yes, it’s smaller than a blender, but I’m finding that it is equally handy. This is especially true because the cup used to mix ingredients is the same cup users can drink from.
More from the summer salad series brings a Mexican-inspired dish. At the forefront of this salad is spicy grilled shrimp, which pairs with refreshing spinach, cucumber, avocado, and red peppers. Skip Chipotle tonight and make this instead.
After a holiday weekend, preparing a meal sometimes seems far too daunting. When that happens, what's better than a simple and healthy salad for a summer weeknight?
Is it possible to make dishes from the food delivery service without dairy? Most of the recipes contained cheese, butter, or eggs, even for those who choose the vegetarian option.
Along with the first official days of summer comes plenty of excitement on my end when it comes to exploring the farmer’s markets. Over the weekend, I came across spring onions, which I’ve not cooked with before. As you may have seen over the years on Dish + Drink, we’ve done a lot with onions of all kinds, but this one is pretty awesome.
It has been quite a while since I ran a recipe that resembles something of a “garbage” dish. This one does just that and combines leftover shrimp and arugula with mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and rigatoni.
A quick side dish of corn and beans is a great way to provide a balanced meal alongside fish or chicken. This recipe also contains a homegrown kung pao pepper that gives a whopping amount of heat, so if you’re looking to go the mild route, swap the kung pao for a red bell pepper instead.
Another installment of Sunday Brunch here on Dish + Drink brings forth a healthy and hearty frittata made without the oven. Fresh baby arugula, mushrooms, and feta cheese come together in this dish.
It may be June, but afternoon thunderstorms render grilling out of the question at least once a week. It’s best to be prepared to cook inside on the days that rain is likely. Instead of moping, I choose these days to throw together something simple that still feels elaborate.
These tacos combine savory pulled chicken with tart pomegranate seeds and fresh vegetables. With just a little extra effort, you can also include chili lime butter corn with shallots. These tacos are filling and satisfying and require no cheese or sour cream.
The first trip of the year to the local farmer's market leads to a grilled vegetable recipe containing mushrooms, zucchini, stake potatoes, and onion. Cayenne pepper and thyme, among other spices, come together in this light summer side dish.
The overarching environmental benefits of composting are abundant, but for home gardeners, what it means on a small scale is perhaps equally important. Dish + Drink takes a look at the details of composting at home.
Buckwheat, which we call kasha in my home, is amongst the healthiest grains. Up until recently, I had only eaten it in a traditional dish called kasha varnishkes (buckwheat, bowtie pasta, and usually onions), but have been looking for more healthy grains to adapt to my diet in versatile ways.
Farmers often treat fruits and vegetables with many kinds of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides that are not fit for human consumption. Organically grown crops, labeled as such by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), are required to be free from synthetic fertilizers and most synthetic pesticides. For this reason, many see them as a healthier choice compared to conventionally grown options.
In the spirit of continuing to share recipes that are even more health-focused than usual, Dish + Drink ventures into chicken paillard. This dish is heavy on leafy greens and includes a solid amount of lean protein, thanks to both spinach and chicken.
Potatoes, zucchini, cauliflower, and caramelized onions and shallot come together in this subtly spicy and nutty side dish. Serve this all spring and summer alongside chicken, fish, or seafood for a near-perfect light meal.
