Beetroot, Basil & Sweet Potato Risotto. Don’t believe the rumours. Risotto is not difficult or scary to make, and if you love root vegetables like I do, you’ll love my lovebug’s recipe. The earthiness of the beets combined with the freshness of the basil and the sweetness of the potato make for a killer combo and an impressive dish any day of the week.
Brown Rice Bowl with Chard & Nutty Tomato Romesco Sauce
When it comes to lunch, I have competing desires. On the one hand, I want a predictable and easy meal I can grab without diverting much attention from my work. But I also don't want to eat the same thing day after day. Meet my answer: the modular one-bowl lunch with mix-and-match toppings, including a smoky, nutty romesco that is quite literally the secret sauce to this meal. I love this stuff so much I call it my happy sauce.
Making a meatless chilli con carne is surprisingly simple; replacing beef or pork with grains like lentils and quinoa makes for a deliciously light, yet rich and filling meal. You might be thinking it's not going to fool you or the meat eater in your life, but I promise when you serve it up with a spicy smoky corn salsa and all the other accompaniments, nobody will have any complaints!
