Miso Mushroom Zucchini “Ramen” Noodles

January 2nd, 2014 by

Ramen. With a nutritional value near that of cardboard yet a taste so addictive and comforting, ramen is a guilty pleasure for most. I still remember one of the first dates I went on with Lu to Momofuku in NYC. I’ve mentioned it before on the blog: the Ginger Scallion Noodle Bowl. I loved it so […]

Pesto Bacon Zucchini Spaghetti Frittata with Mushrooms and Kale

December 22nd, 2013 by

Yes, this is real. You’re looking at a monstrous, healthy frittata. What’s inside? Simple ingredients: zucchini noodles, bacon, mushrooms, kale and 6 eggs. That’s it… oh, and a smidge of garlic powder and some pepper to taste. No, it’s not Christmas morning. Sure does feel like it though, right?

If you’re looking for a post about some inspirational moment which […]

Mushroom, Pancetta & Lentil Zucchini Pasta with Toasted Almonds

September 12th, 2013 by

Now that I’m back on the meat, I’ve been meaning to make a dish with pancetta, bacon’s Italian cousin. Since pancetta doesn’t have that smokiness that bacon does, it won’t overpower the other flavors in your dish yet adds the succulent and distinct essence of pork. Sign me up!  Originally, this recipe was just going […]
