Rocket Pop Sorbet

Rocket Pop Sorbet

Remember those Red, White, and Blue popsicles? Well, this sorbet is inspired by them, and is a great hot weather treat (not to mention being really pretty!). But, unlike the popsicles, this sorbet is made with no artificial colors or flavors, and it has a decidedly mature flavor profile. Fresh, tart, and herbal, this sorbet has 3 layers (strawberry-black pepper, lemon-sour mix, and blueberry-thyme) and the flavors all compliment each other.

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Healthy, delicious and velvety; this versatile carrot-ginger soup is perfect for any occasion. It can be served hot or cold and I must admit that I love it chilled, as it is so light and refreshing. If serving chilled, refrigerate at least two hours before service.
Note: this soup can be made well in advance or frozen for later use.

Note: the healthy dried fruit base can be prepared in advance and frozen for up to 3-4 months.

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor. For example, although we’re breading our Cauliflower, we’ll avoid a ton of excess fat and calories by baking our florets instead of frying them. Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.

Spiced Orange Rice

Spiced Orange Rice

I make lemon rice often which is a common variety of rice in my country. Once I thought, why can’t I try the same with oranges and made this recipe. This is a very flavorful food with a little sweetness. Now we can use oranges for savory dish too. A great way to use your leftover rice.
