Roasted, Spiced Carrots with Tahini Lemon Sauce and Pistachios

In the winter, I am a dedicated eater of various roasted root vegetables served with various sauces (Aloo Chat Inspired Oven Fries and Oven Yam Fries with Miso Gravy).  This kind of food is easy, satisfying, warming, nourishing and delicious.

Red Lentil and Autumn Vegetable Soup

I made this soup a few weeks ago when the leaves first started changing and I choose ingredients mostly because of their autumnal colors.  It is not typical for me to make food with aesthetics as my primary motivation.  Luckily though,

Goat Cheese and Autumn Vegetable Tart with a Gluten-Free Poppy Seed Crust

I make this tart a lot.  It like to serve it to guests with a Spicy Beet Salad with Horseradish and maybe some duck pate and radishes.  I like to take  the leftovers to work for lunch the next day.

Sockeye Salmon with Blackberries and Leeks

It’s salmon and blackberry season and I am visiting my mother on Gabriola Island.  We are picking buckets of blackberries every few days, so I apologize in for the flood of blackberry recipes, but that is what we are eating.
