Skip the greasy Mexican takeout and whip up some vegetarian enchiladas at home.

Mexican food tends to have a bad reputation of being fatty, greasy, heavy and, uh, did I say greasy? It’s truly unfortunate because most traditional Mexican food is none of these things and is instead filled with vibrantly fresh vegetables and big bold flavors.

These enchiladas are one such delicious way to make Mexican food good for you. While they do contain a fair amount of queso fresco, they are actually pretty healthy given that they contain a cauliflower filling and are topped with a cream sauce that is made creamy by protein-rich nonfat Greek yogurt. Like any Mexican dish, though, they do not skimp on flavor, making for a tasty and satisfying, slightly out-of-the-box meatless option.

Radishes are quite delicious when roasted. They become sweet, caramelized, yet retain their crunch. Here I used their leafy tops, chopped, as a garnish. This would be a great side dish to roasted pork, chicken, or fish. Read More

Asparagus-Radish Salad Recipe

By Patrice Johnson | April 15, 2013

Signs of spring always include fresh local asparagus making its first appearance in the market. I am set in my ways when it comes to preparing asparagus: roasted or grilled until just tender, then served with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a grating of aged cheese such as Parmigiano-Reggiano. For a cool spring twist, I love raw asparagus salad. Peeling the stems into ribbons can be painstaking, but it is well worth the trouble.

As we welcome spring, we open our arms to all the new, fresh, seasonal produce at the markets. Early spring asparagus is tender and sweet, so it doesn’t need much more then a quick roast in the oven to make it ready to enjoy. Here, it is roasted amongst broccolini, scallions, and garlic. Tossed together with penne, sun-dried tomatoes, and goat cheese – you have a complete meal that is hearty, seasonal, and full of delicious healthy vegetables.
