Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin Risotto by Robyn Savoie

Risotto is a class of Italian dishes of rice cooked in broth to a creamy consistency. The broth may be meat, fish, or vegetable-based. Many types of risotto contain Parmesan cheese, butter, and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. Risotto is normally a primo (first course), served on its own before…

Greek Minestrone Soup

Greek Minestrone Soup by Robyn Savoie

Try this robust soup for a quick lunch or dinner. Serve with fruit or side salad and you're good to go. I use Arborio rice in this soup. It's an Italian-grown grain that is shorter and plumper that any other short, grain rice. Traditionally used to make creamy risotto, it adds a similar texture to this bean and vegetable soup.

Lentil Salad with Warm Spices

Lentil Salad with Warm Spices by Farrell May Podgorsek

Lentils are perfect for cold or room temperature salads. This salad features the warm flavors of cumin, coriander, ginger and turmeric. Red onion and tomato add texture and color. I tend to overlook lentils so I found a great way to prevent the dreaded mush. Slightly undercook the lentils and then let them sit in the pot until just…

Chewy Tabbouleh

Chewy Tabbouleh by Rich H

I love tabbouleh. This recipe is a slight departure from tradition, using wheat berries versus the usual cracked wheat. The wheat berries add more body and crunch. I also added quinoa to round it out to a full dinner salad versus a side salad..

Fabulous Falafels

Fabulous Falafels by Suzi

The first time I had a falafel was many many years ago in California. I fell in love with them and crave them a lot of the time, even bought them from the street vendor in New York. Luckily there is also a little resaurant near my house that makes them as well along with stuffed grape leaves. Yumm!! Falafels are made from ground up…

No Touch Turnips Paula Wolferts' Way

No Touch Turnips Paula Wolferts' Way by kathy gori

This seems to be the week of no touch, no stir, nearly hands off cooking. Easter became a menu of simple, down home Italian dishes that I felt I just had to share even if they're off topic from my usual Indian fare. How does someone get to be 91 years old without eating a turnip....ever? To what is that attributed? The fact that…
