Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Lime seared scallops over baby spinach

    • dehrens on January 29, 2010

      use this for carmelized walnuts

  • Wok-sauteed mizuna with minced chicken

    • AgusiaH on October 16, 2016

      Very good recipe. I substituted mizuna for spinach, added fresh ginger and served it in salad leaves.

  • Maple baked pears or apples with rolled oat crust

    • ecasey830 on May 23, 2011

      Delicious! I make this one again and again.

  • Piqillo peppers with goat cheese

    • ecasey830 on August 30, 2020

      The flavors are good but I found it hard to roll and slice (even after refrigerating overnight as the recipe suggests)

  • Blackened chicken salad

    • ecasey830 on September 01, 2014

      Delicious! I served this over baby spinach and added avocado.

  • Mediterranean tuna salad

    • ecasey830 on August 13, 2018

      Quite tasty but I would cut down on the mayonnaise next time

  • Pomegranate glazed chicken

    • mharriman on February 04, 2019

      I liked this recipe and it was easier to put together (even though there were still several steps) than my Nancy Harmon Jenkins New Mediterranean Diet cookbook version. I like pomegranates and pomegranate molasses much more than my husband for whom this was just okay. We both really liked the roasted fennel and shallots that accompany the glazed chicken. I probably won’t repeat this recipe unless I just make it for myself for lunch.

  • Spinach and pine nut quiche

    • mharriman on February 06, 2019

      A healthy tasting quiche and attractive looking, but not one of the more flavorful ones I’ve eaten or made ( probably because of the absence of ham, bacon, etc). This was a nice change after eating some spicier dinners recently. Easy to put together. I followed the directions and measurements except for one thing: I used two pre-made Pillsbury frozen pie crusts, thawed them, combined them, and put them in a porcelain quiche baking dish rather than cooking the quiche in the aluminum pie pan that the dough came with. The crust was much better. Would make a good vegetarian brunch buffet table addition.

  • Hungarian sweet 'n' sour cabbage soup

    • mharriman on April 27, 2022

      I cut all the ingredients to one fourth for my one person lunch. I ended up adding a lot more water because the soup was more like a sauce. I also ended up adding turkey bacon to add some protein and smoky flavor. The finished product wasn’t that great- a thick paprika tomato soup with cabbage. The only flavoring was the caraway seeds which wasn’t enough to offset the heavy tomato sauce flavor for me. Won’t repeat.

  • Thai cucumber salad

    • mharriman on February 02, 2019

      Refreshing salad. My husband and I loved the dressing that also marinates the cucumbers. I chose to just sprinkle chopped cashews and scallions on top of the marinated cucumber slices (didn’t have peanuts). I left off the jalapeño pepper because we didn’t want the heat. The salad was wonderful with our favorite Thai shrimp dish.

  • Moroccan toasted cousous with spiced honey citrus dressing

    • fractal on May 31, 2021

      Delicious and impressive. Lots of chopping to make. I used some pure lemon oil with the olive oil rather than make the lemon flavored olive oil. Potluck favorite.

  • Moroccan pan-roasted seafood

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      This is very good. I added scallops which was very yummy

  • Tuscan vegetable saute

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      I really like this vegetable mix. I added some Parmesan on top

  • Smoked mozzarella and penne salad

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      Dry good and an easy salad to pull together. Good for a lunch party as you can make it ahead

  • Barley primavera

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      I did not find this very tasty.

  • Spicy chicken and tortilla soup

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      This is one of my favorite go to soups. Quick and easy

  • Barbecue lentils with eggplant

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      Very good. This is a great comfort food. The next time I make it I used a little less barbecue sauce and added some pinto pecans

  • Fire-roasted vegetable and hummus club

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      Love this. Excellent as a sandwich or over salad greens

  • Warm quinoa salad with shrimp and asparagus

    • Ezair92 on January 06, 2021

      This was very good. I did sauté the asparagus and peas first and I think it did add to the taste.

  • Orzo and feta with lemon-caper dressing and kalamata olives

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      This was very good. Definitely in my rotation

  • Spring coucous with asparagus and orange

    • Ezair92 on February 24, 2021

      I love couscous and this is very fresh and excellent. I used red pepper flakes instead of cayenne
