These Tuscan White Beans are a new side dish recipe that seem too simple to be amazing, but truly, they are! I elevated the beans by frying fresh sage into crunchy, delicate bliss, and capers – for a complementary salty, earthiness. Plus a heavy drizzle of olive oil. YUM.
Today we’re making an easy, Thai inspired side dish that hits all the right notes: spicy, sweet, and salty. Cauliflower serves as the perfect vehicle for a savory peanut sauce because it absorbs all the flavors, yet retains its crispy edges – such a team player! Paired with the brightness of the cilantro and lime, plus rich prunes, the balance of sweet and spicy is just perfect. Better than I even imagined they would be.
I’ve been working on this grilled sourdough pizza dough recipe over the past few weeks, and I’m so excited to share it with you.

You know that buffalo chicken dip that makes an appearance at parties? Let’s take that idea into vegetarian territory with caramelized cauliflower, and get reeeeaallll cheesy. Extra hot sauce, diced celery and green chiles, plus big shreds of cheese bubbling on top. Plus, the entire thing is made in ONE PAN. You with me?
