CaesarSaladTacos-5

You might be giving me a bit of side-eye because I put a salad in tacos and this is definitely one of those NOT traditional recipes. But I think it works…hear me out. Caesar salad actually was invented in Mexico. There are a lot of disputes about this but it definitely makes sense that it’s Mexican. I visited Cabo San Lucas last year and really wanted to head to the place that invented the caesar salad but wasn’t able to—it was a huge bummer.

In a month full of tacos, this is the second recipe I’m bringing you and I’m super excited about them.

Last weekend I was in Sun Valley—a part of Los Angeles I never venture into—to gather some home supplies. While I was shopping and browsing aisles of countertop options, I realized I hadn’t eaten ALL day and needed food ASAP. I looked at good ol’ Yelp and found a place with really good reviews that was located in a Chevron gas station.

Eggplant with Red Pepper Relish is the New Summer Favorite!

Eggplant is one of those controversial vegetables that people either love or hate. I think a large part of why it gets such a bad rap is that it’s a fairly difficult vegetable to work with. Without the right technique it can end up tough, spongy and dry, or watery and flavorless, or just plain greasy. I’ve shared a few of my favorite eggplant dishes here before, like Baba Ghanoush and Eggplant Dengaku, but today I wanted to share a technique for making a salad inspired by Eggplant Caponata.

Taco Bout Delicious: Chorizo-Spiced Cauliflower Tacos

One of my favorite soup recipes is this one I made a few years ago that I titled Chorizo-Spiced Squash Soup. It is vegetarian, with not a lick of actual chorizo, and instead plays off the borrowed spices used in chorizo. I was obsessed with turning everything chorizo-spiced but for some reason it never hit me to put it on cauliflower and then in tacos…until a few days ago when I was brainstorming ideas for taco month!

While most people eat chia seeds for their high nutritional value, I love using them for their culinary benefits. For example, they’re a great way to thicken things like chocolate pudding without cooking it. They’re also a quick way to add texture to foods, like this strawberry parfait.
