Simple is best. I’ve said it before, but that’s my kitchen-motto. This recipe is a perfect example of that idea. When you think about it, there not much that’s more simple than toast. Yet, however simple the base may be, you can make the tastiest toppings ever, and end up with a really sophisticated dish.

It took me a while to try risotto as a home cooked meal. I usually just order it at the restaurant because it’s so much easier. There’s no preparation involved, and no long hours spent over the stove, stirring the grains over and over again… So yes, it took me while to try to make risotto. But oh my, was I wrong!

Every time I come back to the US, I’m mostly vegetarian. Why “mostly”? Well, because truth be told… I love meat! I really do.

However, I do care about the ways in which animals are treated though, and since I don’t really know anything about this subject here in Philadelphia, I “mostly” avoid buying meat.

I promise this salad is the last one I’ll post for a while! (or at least until next week…) But it’s just so delicious that I couldn’t help myself but share it with you all. I should probably start off this post by reiterating that this recipe isn’t mine. It come’s from the Abel&Cole cookbook that my brother lent me over the summer.

It’s finally my favorite time of the semester here in Philly, aka Restaurant Week! Basically for two weeks, twice a year, most of the best restaurants in town offer a $35 three-course menu. It’s an amazing deal for college students to have a taste of delicious places in town, that would otherwise be out of reach. I always anxiously await the dates to make reservations well in advance and discover a new place every time. Continue reading “Warm Green Quinoa Salad with Avocado, Lima Beans, and Feta Cheese”
