Asparagus and White Bean Salad with Feta and Lemon Dressing

Served with crusty bread, this salad makes a terrific meal. White beans provide a delectable hearty tenderness, without overwhelming the delicate asparagus. Tangy feta, zesty lemon, and a touch of mint give this salad a bright and refreshing flavor.

Pan-Broiled Salmon (Sake Nanban-yaki)

From Shizuo Tsuji, Japanese Cooking: A Simple Feast, which came out in the early eighties with an introduction by M.F.K. Fisher and color illustrations apparently subsidized by Suntory whisky, which (it’s noted) pairs well with many Japanese dishes. My friend Annie lent me this cookbook as an artifact, and because of my M.F.K. Fisher addiction. Mostly the recipes were too rigorous to make it in to my regular routine, but this salmon dish is simple and amazing.

Parsnip-Purslane Salad

Our grown son, who loves to cook, put together this salad just to combine raw ingredients that he likes to eat. It turned out so delicious that we begged him to write it down so we could share it with y’all. Its simplicity makes it a wonderful last-minute addition to any meal. Enjoy.

Spinach-Cheddar Quiche

We have 5 kids, ages 15 down to 1 year and they ALL love this meal. You know that says a lot when you can get all the kids to agree on something! Hopefully your family will enjoy this as much as ours does! The original recipe calls for half-and-half but I have found that evaporated milk makes a great (and less expensive) substitue. Also, the original recipe uses frozen spinach – I always use fresh and have never had a problem.

Summer Ceviche Salad

An interesting change for a summer menu, using an assertive Central and South American herb sometimes called “summer cilantro”. (You could substitute regular cilantro, but the flavor is not really the same.) A very healthy recipe, with no need to heat up the kitchen — the lime juice marinade “cooks” the fish. Only one downside — though it came from a blog that emphasizes local foods, the recipe uses supermarket fish — groan. It’s delicious, but I’m hoping that someone who is a better fisherman than I am will try this with a local, wild-caught fish such as bream or sunfish. If you do, please post your results!

Swiss chard and garbanzo pasta

This is a great, quick, nutritious recipe. I found it online while searching for more ways to cook the delicious Swiss chard we get from Athens Locally Grown, and I’ve changed it only by adding the mushrooms and onion.

Could be vegan without the feta, of course.

Swiss Chard Stem Gratin

Most green leafy vegetable stems are just as delicious as the leaves and can be included in any dish you are making. Depending on the recipe, you may have to give the stems a few minutes head start in boiling water. Or, you can just save them up for variations on this unusual recipe.

Turnips with Yogurt and Tomato

I’m very pro-turnip. You should be, too. If you’re not already eating them raw while roasting a pan full every week, this is a good gateway recipe.

Two-Potato Pancakes

These make a great simple dinner with sausages (either meat or veggie-type) and applesauce. The addition of sweet potatoes makes the pancakes much higher in vitamin A and vitamin c, fiber, and complex carbohydrates, while the addition of white potatoes keeps the pancake from being too moist and soft. You can peel the potatoes if you prefer, but keeping the skins makes the dish even healthier.
