Hearts of Palm Ceviche

Hearts of Palm Ceviche
Hearts of Palm Ceviche

I’ve always loved hearts of palm. I would simply slice them up and season with sea salt, pepper, and a dash of olive oil. But there was something about their texture that made me think they would be absolutely perfect in a fish-less ceviche. And I was right. This Hearts of Palm Ceviche is bright and colorful. It is perfect served with tortilla chips, on a tostada, or, my favorite way, on plantain chips. It would also look lovely as an appetizer for a more formal affair, served in martini glasses and a delicate spoon. Either way, the taste is absolutely fresh and fantastic. Try it now!

Ceviche de cœurs de palmier

J’ai toujours eu un certain penchant pour les coeurs de palmier. Je les assaisonne simplement de sel de mer, de poivre, et d’un trait d’huile d’olive.

Cette recette, fraîche et colorée, se sert parfaitement bien avec des tortilla chips, sur des tostadas, ou même dans des verres à martini, comme entrée lors d’un dîner entre amis. Essayez-la!

Whoa! I never knew I’d love this Creamy Tahini and Dill Sauce so much. It is so very versatile. Last week I served it with roasted potatoes, and now it shines bright in this lettuce-free salad of jicama, corn and zucchini.

Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl

Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl
Super Simple Watermelon Poke Bowl

This is a super simple watermelon poke bowl. Because who has two hours to fuss in the kitchen? You make the marinade, you let the watermelon soak in it overnight, and the next day, you have poke. The marinade is tangy and has the perfect bite. You can leave the watermelon in the marinade even after it’s ready, and simply take out what you need with a slotted spoon until no more.

In its traditional form, poke is diced raw fish served either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine. And if you like fruits in savory dishes, check out this Millet Salad that features strawberries and this Chickpea Curry with Figs and Apricot.

Sun Dried Tomato and Brazil Nut Dip

Sun-Dried Tomato and Brazil Nut Dip
Sun-Dried Tomato and Brazil Nut Dip

This Sun Dried Tomato and Brazil Nut Dip is everything I was looking for to eat with crackers or jicama batons. It is raw, assuming your tomatoes were actually sun dried, and it has a great texture. The inspiration came when my drum instructor shared some recipes from a time when she was raw. I modified to my liking and here it is. The Brazil nuts are high in selenium, an essential nutrient, and 37% of the fats in Brazil nuts are polyunsaturated fatty acids, a type of fat that has been shown to benefit heart health. I’ve made this recipe a bunch of times already, because it’s that good. You can double the ingredients easily. Try this recipe as a dip, or use it as a topping for zucchini noodles.
