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.

Two of my favorite things about this time of year is edible flowers and Mother’s Day. My two favorites collide with these grapefruit popsicles with edible flowers. Of course, you can add them to all sorts of things like ice cubes or ice tea or even to a salad. They’re the perfect garnish and always look so beautiful. One caveat with using edible flowers is that you have to ensure they haven’t been sprayed. Either grab them from your garden or neighborhood or buy them at grocery stores or farmers markets.

For a Balanced Meal, Try Mediterranean Udon Salad

Mediterranean Udon Salad recipe

While it may seem like an odd pairing of Japanese and Mediterranean ingredients, using udon noodles is what makes this salad so good. While pasta tends to get dry and starchy when chilled, udon is actually meant to be eaten cold. That means it maintains a slick glossy surface with a marvelously firm springy texture, making it perfect for cold salads.

I’m pretty sure there is nothing better than downing a glass of cold, sweet horchata on a warm day. There also isn’t anything better to drink alongside a plate full of too many tacos. These two were made for each other.

Blend Up a Banana Date Tahini Smoothie

I really hate wasting food, but there are times when I just can’t get through an entire bunch of bananas before they go bad. Making banana bread is one way of using up old bananas, but spending an hour baking isn’t always an option. Recently, I was headed out of town for a week and found myself with full bunch of bananas that just weren’t going to make it until I got back.

I love any excuse to eat bread, especially since I’m currently on a diet-thingy which prohibits anything fun a.k.a. grains.  Sometimes, especially when given the right excuse, rules are meant to be broken and a few days ago when the fava beans at the market were looking super cute, I decided it was time to live on the edge.
