Red Beet Hummus with Walnuts and Citrus

Everybody seems to love hummus, and so do I!  It’s so fun to come up with different renditions of the original made with chickpeas, garlic, tahini and olive oil.  

This is a lovely way to serve a unique hummus that is so beautiful to look at and equally delicious to eat. 


Cucumber Salad With Cucumber, Dill, And Mustard Dressing

I remember taking a cooking class from the amazing plant-based chef, Chad Sarno, where he showed us how to beautifully contain a salad using long strips of cucumber. He joked when he said, “now you can charge $12.50 for lettuce!” I’m giving you this idea for free!!! The salad is filled with thinly sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes from my garden, sunflower sprouts, and toasted sliced pistachios, and adorned with a creamy cucumber dressing. Not only is this salad totally alkalizing, but it’s also the perfect summertime salad as it’s super hydrating, refreshing and anti-aging. Serve this, and your guests will be impressed!


Chilled Kaffir Lime Melon Soup

Summertime calls for a refreshing chilled soup. As I peered at my beautiful Kaffir lime tree, I noticed little Kaffir limes starting to grow. This is how Kaffir Lime Melon Soup was born! This melon soup is not only very refreshing, but it’s a little exotic too! The Kaffir lime zest and juice, and a pinch of cayenne will take you to a foreign land right here at home.


Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho

This popular soup from the Andalusian area of Spain, mostly known, now for being served cold, has many different influences from Greece and Rome, but also from the Moor’s and Arab culture. The original soup was blended stale bread, olive oil, and garlic, with water or vinegar and pounded together in a mortar. Local vegetables and almonds were added later.
