We’re back in town after an amazing vacation and I just can’t get enough grilled veggies. These grilled portabella mushrooms are my husband’s favorite.
I’ve been grilling everything though –zucchini, broccoli and lots of chicken. I’ll be posting a recipe for grilled broccoli before summer’s end. My grill is getting a really good workout these days!

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
Clean mushrooms and cut off stems

This recipe for Grilled Zucchini is one of my favorites for several reasons. First, it’s a good way to use up the prolific zucchini of August. Second, it’s mighty easy to make. And third, it’s delicious. Let’s not forget reason number four though –zucchini and summer squash are a healthy side dish for any meal.
Lately I’ve been serving this Grilled Zucchini with my Rosemary Lemon Chicken. They make quite a summery pair, and along with a green salad comprise a ... read more →

I confess, I have an addiction to broccoli rabe. I love the bitter flavor of this delicious green vegetable. I have always believed that bitter is such an important, yet under rated flavor in our culture.
I think a lot of people drink coffee for the bitter flavor that we all need so badly. My Ayurvedic teachers used to say, “bitter is better for pitta.” Pitta is the fire element and bitter is quite good for not only cleansing the liver, ... read more →

So, the month o’ cupcakes is over here at Elana’s Pantry and none too soon. I’m totally ready to hit the green veggies and today I have a nice roasted asparagus recipe for you all. We are growing asparagus in our garden, though it takes about 3 years for it yield anything, so we’ve got a bit of a wait on our hands for actual productivity.

We are loving these Lemon Kale Chips. I can’t make enough of them –the boys scarf them down hot out of the oven. Yesterday, they ate 3 batches, yes you heard that right, 3 batches of kale chips, after school. Of course, like everything else I make, these are gluten free.
You can use curly kale (as in the photo above), or dino (lacinto) kale or any other type. My boys say it is best with the curly kale.

Carrot Kugel –who would have thought of that? Well, the fabulous Lisa Stafford, that’s who. Lisa recently posted her recipe for Carrot Souffle in the forums and here’s what she had to say about it:
“I made this dish Tuesday night and had some with our meat and salad. I warmed some up in the toaster oven for lunch on Wednesday. Before I put it away, I tried it cold. Oh my goodness! I like it cold much better. It reminds me of ... read more →

Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.
Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.
Below is my favorite recipe for latkes. I have been making these gluten-free latkes for 5 plus years and my family still rejoices each Hanukkah when I serve them.
Butternut Squash Latkes
4 cups butternut squash, peeled and grated
1 small onion, peeled and grated

In the process of creating this recipe I cooked chestnuts in a variety of ways. I report here: do not bother with the boiling method. This manner of preparation entails the painstaking prying of many little nuts from their shells. During that process I felt like a squirrel –with a knife.
My favorite way, providing both ease and the tastiest results, is the pan roasting method. After you remove the chestnuts from the pan, remove the shells while they are still ... read more →

More kale mom!
Say hello to Kale with Cranberries! This salad recipe contains: kale, a cancer fighting superfood packed with flavonoids; cranberries, high in vitamin C; and pine nuts, the edible seed of the pine tree, and higher in protein than any other seed.
My boys fight over this one. The four of us can finish off the 2 bunches of kale that the recipe calls for in one sitting. Even when their dad is not home for dinner, the three of ... read more →
