Kohlrabi and Zucchini Fritters
These kohlrabi and zucchini fritters turned out great! The texture of the kohlrabi, which is kind of like a turnip, worked so well fried and turned into an amazing fritter! While, the zucchini added a softer texture and a milder taste to the fritter. This crispy little treat was lightly fried and absolutely delish, as most fried things are. No need to be afraid of fried foods here, though. This fritter is still pretty “lean and green” for you, using just enough vegetable oil to crisp the fritter (but not too much).
Roasted Beet Hummus
The beet flavor (if not the color) in this dip is very subtle, with a nutty edge from walnuts and walnut oil, concentrated sources of fat and flavor. Pair with crunchy crudités.
Quinoa-Arugula Layered Salad
We made over tabbouleh, turning it into an individually packed picnic dish. This salad holds beautifully, so you can pack it up a day ahead. For the easiest eating, choose wide-mouthed pint jars.
