Simple Plates #8

strawberries and oranges, pan-fried steak with mushrooms and onions, carrots, peas

nectarine slices, zesty mayo-free coleslaw, whole wheat pasta with Parmesan cheese

French lentil salad, Ezekial toast with butter, radish and kiwi
The tasty lentil salad is Alice Waters' recipe from her cookbook, The Art of Simple Food.

cottage cheese pancakes with oranges and blackberries, garlicky spinach, radish

avocado, roasted curried cauliflower and sweet potatoes, cold steak
I cannot rave enough about these roasted curried vegetables. Darwin, on the other hand, only liked the sweet potato, calling the cauliflower "too crunchy-munchy" (this is a generic reason he gives for taking something out of his mouth once it's gone in.) I might post the recipe anyway, as it's too delicious not to share.

broccoli, cottage cheese, blackberries, banana with natural peanut butter and cinnamon

simple southwestern quinoa with corn, avocado, blackberries and strawberries, baked sweet potato rounds

carrots, garlicky kale, strawberries, apple slices, whole plain yogurt

sesame bok choy, red lentil dal with cauliflower and yogurt, blackerries


  1. Mmm, yum yum. Can you tell me about the cottage cheese pancakes? Those sound very interesting!

  2. Jessica, they're a family recipe, and I'll be posting the recipe next week. :)
