Sunflower Dill Pesto

Sunflower Dill Pesto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dill #pesto #recipe #glutenfree #dairyfree #nutfree

I learn the most amazing things from vegetarians. I don’t know what it is about them, but vegetarians seem to have a streak of culinary creativity that is just pure genius. Perhaps it’s because they’ve removed meat from the equation so they have to find other means to add deliciousness to their meals … I’m […]


Mixed Vegetable Piroshki

Mixed Vegetable Piroshki ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Russian #vegetarian #pocketsandwich

It’s the morning after my daughter’s 18th birthday party. She wanted a Dungeons and Dragons party. It was a wild time last night, quite a change from our normal quiet household. Eight rowdy teenagers who ate voraciously, talked, joked, laughed loudly and frequently broke into song. My daughter and I were way over-prepared in the food […]


Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl

Shrimp & Smoked Salmon Sushi Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #seafood #recipe

All the delicious flavors of sushi in an easy bowl! My friend Jon (who is Asian) calls this “bachelor sushi” … he tells me the way he makes sushi at home is just to throw it all in a bowl. Sometimes if he’s making sushi for a crowd, he just fills a cake pan with sushi ingredients. […]


Healthy Broccoli Mushroom Mac & Cheese

Healthy Broccoli Mushroom Mac & Cheese with black bean penne & cauli-carrot 3-cheese sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #comfortfood #recipe

with black bean penne and a cauliflower carrot three cheese sauce March is National Noodle Month. I had a #NoodleMonth party on my facebook page yesterday and gazing at all those lovely pasta dishes made me hungry for a cheesy pasta casserole … not just any cheesy pasta casserole: specifically I wanted macaroni & cheese. […]


Mushroom Potato Hash

Mushroom Potato Hash ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #breakfast #recipe

A simple dish that is so comforting and delicious … and healthy, too! Mushrooms and potatoes fried up into a lovely hash, with a bit of cheese and a fried egg on top. This is my idea of breakfast paradise. The other day I was thinking back to many years ago when I lived in California. […]


Lucky Green Shamrock Pizza

Lucky Green Shamrock Pizza ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Irish #StPatricksDay #recipe

with a spinach almond crust, lemon avocado sweet pea spread, Irish KerryGold Dubliner cheese and fresh cilantro. Who says grownups can’t play with their food?

Cheddar Jalapeno Brussels Sprouts Poppers

Cheddar Jalapeno Brussel Sprouts Poppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #appetizer #recipe

Roasted crunchy creamy cheesy spicy goodness! Perfectly roasted brussels sprouts topped with spicy jalapeno cream cheese and a crunchy gluten free cheesy crumb topping. I’ve been on a brussels sprouts binge lately … I’m so addicted to those tiny green cabbages! Every time I go to the store, I pick up more of them, with absolutely no plan of what […]


Zoodles with Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs

Zoodles with Vegetarian Parmesan Mushroom Meatballs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #meatless #meatballs #recipe

Adapted slightly from Cooktoria A healthy, delicious meatless dish made from mushrooms, zucchini (ok, I used yellow squash), and a bit of cheese and breadcrumbs that is surprisingly convincing at masquerading as the “real” thing. Meatballs made of mushrooms? Yes, I went there. Yes, if you pay close attention, you will be able to tell there really […]


Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #appetizer #recipe

Two appetizers become one! … imagine the spicy goodness of buffalo chicken stuffed into a crispy potato skin shell … with melted blue cheese crumbles on top. You can make this with chicken, or, if you’re vegetarian (or a little more adventurous), try the cauliflower version. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. I seriously love […]


Baked Butternut Brown Rice Risotto

Baked Butternut Brown Rice Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #healthy #risotto #recipe

Fresh sage and Asiago cheese really balance out the sweetness of the squash and the brown rice gives it a nutty taste, creating a savory, comforting, creamy rice dish that I just want to snuggle up with as the chill of December settles upon us. This risotto is baked to simplify the process … there’s just […]


Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins

Denver Omelet Stuffed Potato Skins ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #breakfast #potato #skins #recipe

I made baked potato soup for my son last week, and when I was scooping the flesh out for the soup, I was very careful to leave a little bit of potato edge in the skins, saving them for ME … you see, I absolutely adore crispy crunchy potato skins. I couldn’t wait to bake […]


Cranberry Fig Salad

Cranberry Fig Salad with Pomegranate, Blue Cheese Crumbles, Toasted Pecans and Balsamic Vinaigrette ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #holiday #salad #recipe

with wine-poached figs, crumbled blue cheese, pomegranates and toasted pecans I know, I know … it’s the holidays and most of the things I’m posting are … um … healthy. Yeah, I know that’s unusual in the food blogger realms lately. Everyone seems to be posting goodies galore … not me. I’m definitely not in […]


The Best Eggplant Parmesan (Gluten Free!)

The BEST Eggplant Parmesan (gluten free) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #GF #Eggplant #Parmegiana #

I am guessing you probably hear claims of “the best” this or that recipe all over the interwebs … so perhaps you might be asking what right have I to claim that THIS one is the best? … what is it that makes THIS eggplant parmesan so special? It’s simply that it’s saucy, yet crispy and crunchy […]


Fermented Heirloom Tomato Salsa

Fermented Heirloom Tomato Salsa ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fermented #salsa #recipe #superhealthy

Last month I convinced my parents to come down to visit me. I know they are busy with all of their garden things and grandchildren things and their projects, but I needed their help. They also brought me a big box of lovely veggies from their garden and Dad brought me a container of his fermented […]


Zucchini Chanterelle Brown Rice Risotto

Zucchini Chanterelle Brown Rice Risotto ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #brownrice  #easy #risotto #recipe

A creamy, nutty, comforting risotto that is much easier to make than traditional risotto … the rice is baked in the oven, rather than cooked on the stovetop with constant stirring like traditional risotto. This risotto is finished with about 5 minutes of stirring stovetop,  which brings out the starches from the rice and makes that […]


Indian Creamed Spinach with Cheese (Saag Paneer)

Indian Creamed Spinach w Cheese (Saag Paneer) ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Indian #spinach #recipe

Adapted/lightened from Food Network I have to teach an Indian cooking class … which made me realize I’ve been slacking on Indian recipes on my blog. I’ve got lots of curries, yes, but not so many other Indian recipes. Perhaps many Indian recipes ARE indeed curry recipes, but I think I tend towards the Thai […]


Zucchini Kale Fried Rice

Zucchini Kale Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Asian #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Hurrah garden season is here! I am a garden beggar this year … the only plants I have growing in my little container garden are herbs and a single tomato plant. Oh, and there are two little sweet pepper plants that refuse to die from last year … and they are stubbornly making peppers, despite […]

Nepalese Cauliflower Curry {Misayeko Tarkari}

Nepalese Cauliflower Curry {Misayeko Tarkari} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Nepal #Cauliflower #Vegetarian #Curry #recipe

It’s hard to explain all the sensory satisfaction you get from this eating dish–it has a little creaminess, a little exotic spice, a tingle of heat that dances on your tongue, a touch of sweetness and so many wonderful textures and flavors all mingling together beautifully. The color is so vibrant too, it’s even a […]
