Ah, the New Year. Don’t we all wish for something lighter to eat after all that holiday indulgence? How about lovely flaky white fish fillets topped with crunchy crumbs with a slight hint of garlic and lime? This dish is never heavy like a fried fish dish might be. It’s a favorite adapted from Cooking Light (here’s the original recipe), which I’ve lightened it up even further by leaving off the melted butter and simply spraying the breadcrumbs with cooking spray to get them to crisp up. I highly recommend Japanese panko crumbs for this – they’re sort of pre-crunchy already – but you can use any breadcrumbs you like. Also, this is seriously easy. Five minutes of prep, and 20 minutes later you are enjoying the crispy crunchiness!
This might be my new favorite way to make tofu now. Because crispy! *happy food dance* But also healthy because these little dudes are baked, not fried. It’s one of my things, baked instead of fried. You can put these on EVERYTHING! The photo above is of the crispy tofu in my vegan palak paneer. Thanks to David Lebovitz and Joe Yonan for sharing this amazingness with the world! Continue reading

Behold, the humble red radish, my namesake. Broiled, the bite goes away and they almost resemble baby red potatoes – I’m not kidding – but with a tiny kick remaining… and NO CARBS, BABY. My husband mowed ALL of these (I had a dainty few). OK maybe 2/3 him, 1/3 me. LOL. My point is, they’re really good. I feel like this could be the next cauliflower. (Veggie that gets all kinds of star treatment due to being a carb stand-in!) Continue reading
