Nippy Spring Green Salad w/Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Pleasantly bitter this salad just might help you detoxify. According to Ayurveda this is what bitter flavors do. Arugula, spinach and parsley combine perfectly with the crunch of toasted sunflower seeds. Add refreshing grapefruit-Dijon “vinaigrette” and your mouth and body get a jump-start on healthy eating. 

Brave New Baked Beans

This is an outstanding throw-back dish sans Babe the pig. Bravely entering the world of plant-based food this dish is rich and terribly satisfying to the palate. Molasses and tomato paste set the background palate for a deep umami experiecne. Key to this dish is a slow bake. Serve it up with rice or potato and  a pungent or nippy salad to balance the richness.
