Chicken Fesenjan- A Persian Pomegranate and Walnut Chicken Stew

Chicken Fesenjan — Persian Pomegranate & Walnut Chicken Stew

Amy No Comments

Fes­en-WHAT?!?! Unfor­tu­nate­ly for the world of food­ies, so many peo­ple have nev­er heard of Chick­en Fes­en­jan, or had the lux­u­ry of tast­ing this dish. One of the perks of grow­ing up in Vegas was that there’s deli­cious, authen­tic food of all parts of the world on near­ly every cor­ner. Vegas is a cul­tur­al melt­ing pot, and lucky for me, I got to enjoy many inter­na­tion­al fla­vors before ever leav­ing home. I first tast­ed this Per­sian delight at my favorite Mid­dle East­ern Restau­rant grow­ing up. It was love Read more […]

Great Gluten Free Grain Series: Spring Millet with Asparagus, Artichoke Hearts, English Peas & Tarragon Mustard Vinaigrette

I real­ize Spring is fly­ing by and I have yet to share the Spring edi­tion of my Great Gluten Free Grain Series… (Psst…if you hap­pened to miss it, Win­ter brought a beau­ti­ful Brus­sels Sprout Wild Rice Sal­ad and Maple Sage Quinoa.) Have you been indulging in as much local organ­ic aspara­gus, arti­chokes, spring peas, rhubarb and straw­ber­ries as I have?! From hav­ing end­less local sea­son­al pro­duce come through the kitchen at the restau­rant, to per­son­al vis­its to the week­end Farmer’s mar­kets, I Read more […]

Spinach Artichoke Soup with Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes

Amy No Comments

  As Win­ter makes its exit, Spring is near­ing, which brings a fresh new sea­son of vibrant greens, includ­ing some of my all-time favorites, Spinach and Arti­chokes! And while they’re in no way relat­ed to the arti­choke, or Jerusalem for that mat­ter, we are near­ing the end of the Jerusalem Arti­choke (also known as sun­chokes) sea­son. This deli­cious root veg­etable is rarely used, and def­i­nite­ly under-appre­ci­at­ed. Jerusalem arti­chokes sup­port gut health, and are a great source of potas­si­um Read more […]

Great Gluten-Free Grain Series: Maple Sage Quinoa with Rutabaga

  Here’s anoth­er Win­ter install­ment for the Great Gluten Free Grains Series. Although, with the lat­est Cal­i­for­nia weath­er, it feels much more like Spring. Before we know it, those hearty root veg­gies will be mak­ing their exit to pave the way for fresh Spring greens, like aspara­gus, arti­chokes and peas, and vibrant fruits like apri­cots, and my per­son­al favorite, rhubarb! Not only is sea­son­al eat­ing more cost effec­tive and bet­ter for your com­mu­ni­ty and the envi­ron­ment, it also helps sup­port Read more […]

  In case you missed the Feb­ru­ary newslet­ter, we are cel­e­brat­ing choco­late here at Kitchen Faerie Head­quar­ters this month! These salt­ed choco­late chip tahi­ni cook­ies are the per­fect way to dive into a new love affair. Focus on cul­ti­vat­ing a healthy rela­tion­ship with this super­food, and hone in on how choco­late can best sup­port your well­ness and vital­i­ty. Choco­late nat­u­ral­ly releas­es sero­tonin, endor­phins, and phenylethlyamine (known to some as the ‘love-drug’), and stim­u­lates dopamine Read more […]
