Summer Grain Salads: Jasmine Rice With Grilled Vegetables and Cashews

Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

Inspired by Thai grilled beef salad (neua nam tok), this salad replaces the meat with grilled vegetables and adds fragrant jasmine rice. It's loaded with fresh herbs and dressed with a bracing, fish sauce-spiked lime vinaigrette. Plus, because the vegetables are grilled, they give the salad a deeper, smoky flavor. More

Puddin 'n' Pie From 'Mother Daughter Dishes'

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Help yourself to a slice of pudding (and pie) with this old-fashioned treat from Mother Daughter Dishes. A crushed pecan crust is topped with a layer of sweetened cream cheese, then a layer of vanilla pudding, and finally, vanilla whipped cream. It firms up beautifully in the fridge, with a mouthful of textures to please the palate. More

Pudding and pie: it's the best of both worlds. Mother Daughter Dishes takes a salty crust made of crushed pecans, spreading a layer of sweet cream cheese, vanilla pudding, and finally, whipped cream, atop it. The entire thing is chilled until set, to form thick squares of cool, sweet richness. More

7 Nut and Seed Butters for Your Pantry

Miki Kawasaki 16 comments

It wasn't long ago that buying nut butter at the supermarket meant little more than the choice between smooth or crunchy. Oh, how times have changed. On the shelves where you used to find little more than Jif and Skippy, there is now a dauntingly vast—if utterly delicious—array of spreads. In the interest of making sense out of the wide variety of nut and seed butters out there, allow us to guide you through the different kinds you can find in supermarkets, specialty stores, and online.

Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

This trio of eggplant, tomato, and ricotta cheese makes for a hearty, if not terribly exciting, twist on a caprese salad. Give the appetizer a Paleo twist, though, and the dish transforms into something far more interesting. Michelle Tam's recipe in her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo, pairs eggplant slices (coated in ghee and broiled) with thick tomato steaks, a balsamic and shallot reduction, and her own macadamia nut-based ricotta "cheese."

Macadamia Nut "Ricotta" From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 16 comments

Nut "cheese" is not the first thing I expected to make from a Paleo cookbook. Most nut cheese recipes call for cashews; as someone with a cashew allergy, I have tended to avoid all dairy-free cheeses for the sake of safety. So I was pleasantly surprised when Michelle Tam's recipe for nut "cheese" in her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo, called for macadamia nuts. Mild-tasting, rich, and sweet, these round nuts not only fit into my diet, but they also seem like an ideal substitute for ricotta. More

Blueberry Breakfast Bars From 'Whole-Grain Mornings'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 2 comments

Sweet, snack-like foods are not usually my pick for breakfast. I'm less likely to grab a muffin or slice of coffee cake than I am to slurp down a bowl of oatmeal. Still, slightly sweet baked goods like Megan Gordon's blueberry breakfast bars in her new cookbook, Whole-Grain Mornings, could find a place in my breakfast routine if I need a quick grab-and-go meal.
