Spring is finally here and the arrival of warmer weather had inspired me to create some innovative salad combinations that combine some of my favorite cuisines. Don’t get me wrong, we are still a primarily meat based household, but every now and again you like to go to the lighter side. No reason that healthy needs to be boring. This salad is topped with a ginger peanut dressing that brings the combination of zesty, tangy, sweet and salty straight from Southern Asia and combines the textures of crunchy vegetables and earthy kale, to make each bite an adventure.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 2 months since my last blog! Between renovation and being busy at work, I didn’t have much time to cook anything special. We are not completely done, but things slowly going back to normal.
Today I am sharing the Butternut Squash-Apple Soup. This is a perfect recipe for fall! Slow roasting the squash, apple, and onion together makes them tender and flavorful. Cashew milk makes the soup rich and creamy. The combination of Granny Smith and red apples like Gala adds a tangy sweet flavor to this delicious soup. Serve with warm crusty bread for dipping.

This dessert becoming one of my favorite desserts to make this summer. Every time I eat it, I can’t believe it how delicious it is! It’s so simple, it takes less than 15 minutes to make. It’s so good and its good for you! I came across several raw desserts and choose the ingredients that I liked and would get best flavors together. For the crumble, I used raw almonds, dried dates and apricots and spiced it with a little bit of cinnamon. Dates offer a caramel-like sweetness, and apricots has this tangy sweet flavor, which I thought would compliment the dates. I used almonds, but you can use any nuts you like, I think walnuts would be nice too. The coconut vanilla sauce is simply a coconut cream with fresh lime juice, vanilla extract and coconut nectar. I can’t get enough of this delicious sauce! The coconut nectar is a great addition and you can find it at Whole Foods, Sprouts or Trader Joes. If it’s not available to you, you can use a different sweetener like agave nectar, honey or maple syrup. I would encourage you to use coconut nectar if you can find it. I used raspberries and blueberries with a touch of coconut sugar, but you can use any berries you want. Raspberries and fresh apricots would be nice too. Coconut sugar is a healthier alternative to cane sugar, but you can use whatever sweetener you prefer. I hope you enjoy this healthy and delicious summer dessert!
