A bit of activated charcoal makes this Halloween cocktail a little spooky in the best way.
Cocktail #2 in our No Waste drink series, the New Life Old Fashioned gets an earthy twist from a spent coffee and beer syrup!
At Salvage Supperclub’s recent dumpster dinner in Portland, veteran mixologist Nathan Gerdes whipped up drinks using products that typically get thrown out, like citrus peels and coffee grounds. He also used spirits whose origins hearken back to ingredient “recycling” and preservation.
These delicate, classic cookies get a delightful twist from the ground Earl Grey tea leaves in the batter! A staple on the afternoon tea table, madeleines are perfectly sweet and soft-textured. They are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, so try and enjoy them within an hour of baking!
This simple and showstopping appetizer gets an earthy flavor and natural hot pink hue from beets! Goat cheese provides smooth texture and satisfying tang. This dish is also a great way to use up a baguette that might be one day past its prime.
Hot summer days were made for sippin’ rosé poolside. And while rosé is perfectly delicious and refreshing right out of the bottle, it reaches new heights as frosé—a brut rosé sweetened ever so slightly with homemade lavender simple syrup, then frozen and blended to a slushy consistency.
This gorgeous, layered cheesecake is bursting with summer flavors – Meyer lemon, blueberry, and lavender. It’s entirely plant-based and also raw, making it as impressive as it is delicious.
These simple “quickles” are the perfect way to infuse your next meal with a little Korean flair. Made from shiitake mushrooms, these “umami bombs” have a satisfying chewy texture, a slightly tangy taste, and huge depth of flavor. Serve them among other banchan, like kimchi, daikon pickles, and stir-fried fish cakes.
Chermoula, a North African sauce traditionally paired with grilled seafood, has many variations. This one is a lighter, green version as opposed to the red variety that often contains a lot of chili peppers and paprika. It’s garlicky, lemony, and herbaceous notes make it perfect as a marinade, in dressings, or alone as a simple condiment. Try it on vegetables and tofu! I use it on savory grilled portobello mushrooms at my Moroccan-themed pop-up dinners. It’s also an extremely simple recipe – just grab your herbs and your food processor!
Zucchini noodles, or “zoodles,” are a common and healthy alternative to traditional pasta. Use a Spiralizer or a stand mixer attachment to make them, and then experiment with spiralizing sweet potatoes, apples, and other types of produce!
