Basically two of my favorite things in one — Jennifer Aniston + salads. I've always been a fan of JA and heard about this infamous salad for years, so when it popped up on my Instagram for some reason this week, it was an obvious choice that I would recreate it. I worked with ingredients I had at home, but i'll share the OG & KCK version below. This is a perfect make-on-Sunday-eat-all-week salad for lunch and dinner with some added protein.
With a cold Saturday in January and a fridge full of veggies and herbs, I wanted to see what I could come up with. Added in some random ingredients as I went. See below!
Don't judge by the picture, but this sauce combination came together and tastes amazing. I wanted to see if I could mimic a creamy ricotta-style sauce with cottage cheese, and I think I came pretty close. Check out the recipe for this garlicky cottage cheese and avocado sauce with zoodles dressed up with toasted pistachios, fennel, chickpeas and fresh peas.
Marathon training has me starving but also in need of smart fuel, so I'm starting to incorporate more lean proteins into my daily diet. I very rarely cook fish in my apartment, but that may change now that I have this recipe. Sautéed in fruity olive oil and bathed in a simple sauce that’s loaded with lemony, herbal flavors -- I had to pace myself while eating it [see what I did there?].
We were prepping our sirloin steak with garlic-herb butter and I found this recipe while looking for a flavorful side dish. Buttery, herby with a touch of tang thanks to tamari and balsamic, you'll love these mushrooms and find that you can pair them with anything - especially grilled steak.
