Smoked Trout Salade Nicoise With Purple Potatoes
Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? But the smoked trout is a purchased product, and the rest of the salad is easy to make.

This colorful composed salad is perfect for a warm weather main dish. Get the recipe for Smoked Trout Salade Nicoise With Purple Potatoes.
Vegan Root Vegetable Soup

Best Oven-Baked French Fries
If you love fries and want less fat, oven fries are the way to go. They are easy to make if you follow some simple rules.

Perfect for ketchup dipping, or maybe in malt vinegar! Get the recipe for Best Oven-Baked French Fries.
Carrot & Potato Tsimmes
In Yiddish the word tsimmes has two broad meanings. It can reference a stew made of vegetables, often with fruit, almost always with some sort of dried fruit and sometimes meat as well. It also means “a mess” or “a fuss”, as in “why are you making such a tsimmes?” As you can see from the images, tsimmes are a tad messy looking, but they are always sweet and a great side dish for roasted meats. Get the recipe for Carrot & Potato Tsimmes.
Our carrot cake is jam packed with the ever-popular vivid orange root vegetable – carrots! – along with cinnamon and brown sugar, raisins, and toasted walnuts.
