Meat Ball Sandwiches

Every year my best friend’s mom, Barb (of Barb’s Famous Sausage Bread), would throw an Eve of Christmas Eve party. To keep things simple she would make a massive batch of meatballs and a big salad, set out some rolls, and everyone queued up and filled their own plates. I looked forward to Barb’s meatball sandwiches all year, and when the big night arrived, I ate as many as I could possibly stomach. Continue Reading…

Farro Bowl with Avocado, Kale, and Pickled Veg

This dish is based on one of my favorite lunches in the city, the Kale and Farro Bowl from Oddfellows Cafe on Capitol Hill in Seattle. In a large batch, it makes a hearty salad that can function as an entrée or a side. I like to prep and store the individual components so that when I need something portable and quick, I can throw it all into a jar or container and take it with me. The pickles, kale, and farro can be prepared and stored for up to a week (maybe a bit less for the kale). See tips for cooking farro here. Continue Reading…

Falafel with Kale Tabouli

My weekly meal plans usually involve a few actual recipes, and a few quick meals. One of our favourite quick meals is falafel sandwiches. They are yummy, relatively healthy (especially if you bake them), and can be thrown together quite quickly and painlessly. I normally just half some pita bread, spread some hummus and tzatziki (a Greek, yoghurt based sauce) inside, add some shredded spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, and then try to shove in a few falafel balls. (I also like mine with some hot sauce!)

Tonight we had ready-made falafel on the menu, but when I realised we had all the ingredients for some kale tabouli salad, I decided to make some of that as well. (Tabouli salad is normally made with parsley, but I prefer to make it with kale. That being said, it would probably be good with both parsley and kale! #nexttime)
