Aromatic, punchy, woodsy za’atar chicken with tomato-mint salad scattered over flatbreads and dotted with salty halloumi makes a low-effort but satisfying lunch or appetizer for a party.
An incredibly moist and tender cake with a golden flavor from extra virgin olive oil and almond flour, with a sweet-tart fanning of plums on top. Oh, and it’s gluten free and dairy free, too!
Tossing breadcrumbs with pasta might sound odd, but it’s an old Italian trick for those that couldn’t afford Parmigiano—cucina povera. With the briny bite of frazzle capers it’s the perfect speedy supper.
My take on Pesto Trapanese—the Sicilian pesto of tomatoes, almonds, and anchovy—spooned over tender-crisp green beans. Perfect alternative to green bean casserole for the holidays or as a bright and fresh side for the summer.
The tastes and feel of fall are in full force in the easy, but delicious salad.
