Hi friends! Apologies for last week’s silence. As I previously mentioned, midterms season is here and I’ve had papers, exams, problem sets and group projects in every single one of my classes… kind of overwhelming if you ask me! But now that I finally have some free time, I wanted to share this veggie stir fry recipe with you all!
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’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”
Consistent with my ever present need to splurge on veggies at the market, I bought a huge bunch of green asparagus a while back that I never took the time to use. I had to find a solution, and I didn’t have much time left. So I decided I’d go ham (pun intented) and use it raw with some Italian prosciutto.

“Another day, another salad”. That seems to be my motto these days. I’m on a salad roll for real, as I’ve been trying to take advantage of seasonal produce as much as possible. That’s actually one of my favorite things about the end of Summer/beginning of Autumn. All the amazing new vegetables that start popping up on farmer’s markets’ tables! I buy way too many vegetables when I go, and I know it when I technically don’t need to go, but I can’t help myself and it’s always a part of my Saturday ritual.
