Cook the Book: Pan-Fried Mung Beans with Tempeh

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

I chose this recipe for Pan-Fried Mung Beans with Tempeh to round out our Super Natural Every Day week as a bit of an experiment. On paper, this is a health food recipe through and through. I mean mung beans, tempeh, and broccoli are the stuff 1970s-era hippie health jokes were made of. I was dying to see if this could actually be tasty in the deft hand of Heidi Swanson. And sure enough, it is. More

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

Something magical happens when you put dry kale in the oven. As the moisture leaves the tough raw kale, the leaves are transformed into dark green potato chip-crisp bites. Health food aficionados call them kale chips and virtuously sub them in for starchier snacks. Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day, takes kale chips a step further by using them as a base for a grain salad. More

Cook the Book: Mostly Not Potato Salad

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

Potato salad isn't generally a very salad-y salad. It never contains more than a couple vegetables and as far as healthy points go, it comes in at pretty much nil once you get all the creaminess involved. But potato salad is a summer staple. Where would barbecues and picnics be without some sort of chilled, dressed spud salad? Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day, has brilliantly solved the salad-y potato salad equation with this Mostly Not Potato Salad. More
