Make Spring Onions and Gruyere Pizza from Scratch

Spring Onion and Gruyere Pizza recipe

Spring onions (the uncured bulbs of mature onions, not scallions) are a marvelous seasonal treat that show up in markets in late spring and early summer. Milder and sweeter than cured yellow onions, they have higher moisture content which makes them tender as well. Because of their more delicate flavor they’re great in simple preparations such as in salads or just roasted.

Refresh Yourself with Watermelon Agua Fresca

Watermelon Agua Fresca recipe

This drink recipe may be a teeny bit premature. I usually associate watermelon with the dog days of summer; not the days that teeter between spring and summer. I blame the sweet smell of watermelon!

Embrace the Herb: Make Coriander Chicken

Coriander Chicken recipe

Coriander is one of those controversial herbs that people either love or hate. The most frequent complaint I hear is from people who say it tastes like soap. The irony is that it’s often the people who hated it the most that end up loving it the most over time, myself included. It’s an acquired taste, if ever there was one.

It’s Grilling Season! Make a Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Grilled Veggie Sandwich recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Now that we’ve entered the season where we grill everything, it’s time to share one of my favorite healthy dinners: Grilled Veggie Sandwiches. I’m a big fan grilling vegetables and all vegetables; I think I like it even more than roasting vegetables, which I love a million times more than boiled vegetables. I remember going to friends’ houses growing up and having to force down overcooked boiled vegetables to “be nice.” It wasn’t my favorite moments. I was lucky in that my mom was really into steaming vegetables and during the summer months, she grilled them.

Make Curried Chicken Salad for a Side Dish

Curried Chicken Salad recipe

I’m usually not a big fan of mayo, preferring to make my coleslaw and tuna salad with olive oil and lemon juice. But this curried chicken salad is an exception. The creamy mayonnaise and fragrant curry make a delightful dressing that permeates the chicken, transforming a dry, bland breast into something moist and flavorful.

Brighten Your Plate with Mango Shrimp Tacos

Mango Shrimp Tacos recipe

I feel like just a second ago I was talking about how much I love spring, English peas and radishes, and now? Summer is almost here! I know it’s not technically summer, but Memorial Day always seems like the kick-off to the new season, doesn’t it?

Kangkung Goreng

Kangkung Goreng recipe

While it may sound like the King Kong’s twin brother, kangkung is actually an Asian semi-aquatic vegetable that’s widely used in the cuisines of Southeast Asia. While the spear shaped leaves may look foreign, one look at the white flowers adorned with a purple star and you’d guess correctly that kangkung is related to morning glories and sweet potatoes.

Spicy Pancetta Pizza with Camembert, Arugula and Caramelized Shallots

Spicy Pancetta Pizza with Camembert, Arugula and Caramelized Shallots

The heat has officially hit Los Angeles and all I want to do is eat pizza outside with a glass of rosé or beer in hand. Pizza topped with fresh cold arugula is always my first pick when summer rolls around. And this pizza you see pictured has some of my favorite toppings: gooey Camembert cheese, spicy chili oil, caramelized shallots, a sprinkling of lemon zest and salty pancetta. Oh and really crisp, peppery arugula. I love the contrast between cooked and not cooked and cold and warm. This pizza has it all.
