There’s trick in the directions that I learned from Heidi Swanson (101 Cookbooks) and I have to call it out loudly for all to learn: About 3 minutes before the pasta is done, add chopped broccoli to the boiling pasta water, then strain everything at once. just think about how long something will take to cook and adjust the timing of when you add it to the pasta water. ½ lb of pasta (your choice, I used macaroni) To a medium sized pot, add water and a hearty pinch of salt. Add red wine vinegar, olive oil and oregano, toss the pasta and broccoli in the dressing.
LUNCH INPO: @heidijswanson blew my mind with a simple trick - add veg to boiling pasta water 2 minutes before it’s done. You have veg and pasta cooked in one swoop! • Broccoli Pasta Salad it a one pot answer to lunch for the whole fam - just accessorize with your favorite flavor bombs 🫒🧀🥓🧄 Recipe link in bio. • #mealprepideas #menuplanning #dinner #lunch #pastasalad simplerecipes #easypasta #pasta #familymeals
The apartment came stocked with a modest kitchen set-up, complete with a Bialetti Moka Express espresso pot. I tried to figure it out a few times, but then decided I would just buy “un caffe” at the coffee spot down the block. You’ll taste the more intense notes of the roast, so buy an “espresso” style bean or ask your barista what they recommend. Brew time will depend on the size of your Bialetti, but the #2 takes about 5 minutes.
COFFEE INPO: Have you ever wondered how to make espresso from one of those adorable Italian coffee pots? I lived in Italy for an entire summer during college and never figured it out 🤷🏽♀️ Turns out it is so simple to use and ready in minutes. Click on my bio link to see step-by-step how it’s done. Warning: You may never go back to to your old coffee pot. @bialettiusa • Tag your favorite person to drink coffee with in the comments. • #coffee #espresso #bialetti #morningritual #foodiesofinstagram #foodblogger
When the weather is nice, you don’t want to spend a lot of time heating up the house by using the stove. Also, even though the days are longer, it feels like I have less time because everyone has come out of their rain-proofed cocoons to play. This marinated Tuscan Bean Salad is easy to whip up the night before a BBQ, bring it for your work-week lunch or add it to an urban picnic. Ingredients: 2 tablespoons fresh sage, julienned 1 – 15oz can of each: cannallini beans (also called white northern beans), garbanzo beans and black beans 2 cloves of garlic, minced 1/2 cup roasted peppers, chopped (from the jar or left over from last night’s BBQ) 12 kalamata or Spanish green olives, roughly chopped 3 tablespoons fruity olive oil Salt/pepper to taste
MENU INSPO: Harissa Yogurt with Tangy Carrots (and beets) - humble ingredients are transformed into a fancy vegetarian feast. Want to encourage your kiddo to eat it? Have them dip the carrots into the yogurt, you can leave the yogurt plain or have them try it with the flavor bombs. I’m always surprised what Ari will try when it’s on my plate. • Recipe link in bio 🥳 • #mealprepideas #menuplanning #foodstagram #foodblogger #familymeals #healthy #simplerecipes #healthyfood #easyrecipes #vegetarianrecipes #vegetarianfood #healthyeating #wholefood
Make sure to use red lentils for this recipe, they only take 20 minutes to cook and you want them to mostly breakdown into the rice. 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano or pecorino + more to serve Rinse lentils, pour into a medium sized sauce pan. Put 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small sauce pan with the garlic and heat over medium/low heat until the garlic becomes fragrant, about 1 minute. Carefully add tomatoes (they might sputter) and oregano, bring to a boil, then drop to a low simmer and partially cover the pot.
