Potato & Veggie LatkesLatkes are traditionally eaten during Hanukkah, but they make a tasty dish that will help you celebrate any special occasion! This recipe makes 3 different types of latkes and each type is a different color with a slightly different flavor. I serve them with braised red cabbage in a red-wine cranberry sauce which I hope to post to my blog shortly, as well as a homemade sweet bread.

Goat Cheese Log with Mango Chutney, Peanuts and Cilantro

Goat Cheese Log with Mango Chutney, Peanuts and CilantroI threw a party to celebrate Jason’s birthday and procrastinated about creating the party menu until the day before the party was supposed to happen. Luckily, I found an article that came from O Magazine about easy to make party foods. This goat cheese appetizer was one of the items that I decided to try because it sounded like an unusual and tasty combination of flavors. It combines goat cheese with mango chutney, cilantro and peanuts. Everyone at our party enjoyed it, and I liked it enough to serve again when we had our last big family get together at my parents place. Serve it with whole wheat crackers or melba toast for a quick and tasty hors d’ oeuvre.

Tempeh Wontons

Tempeh Wontons with a Japanese twistThe tempeh in these wontons is marinated in a Japanese style sauce. Shiitake mushrooms and chives, as well as shredded cabbage and carrot, add additional flavor. I brushed the wontons with a little butter and baked them in the oven rather than frying them, which would have added a lot of additional fat. Serve with a salad tossed in ginger dressing and slices of Asian pear.

Basic Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Basic Oven-Roasted AsparagusThis side dish is extremely easy to make. When choosing asparagus at the store, opt for thicker spears that will not dry out when roasted. Also, reheating the asparagus tends to make it become very shriveled. If possible, only cook what you will be eating with the current meal.

Smokin' RiceUntil I made this recipe which comes from the cookbook the Passionate Vegetarian, I had no idea that rice could be so interesting! The chipotle peppers in adobo sauce give it a smokey hot flavor that I like a lot. I usually make a double recipe and freeze half for future meals.
