We started Nourish one year ago with our favorite pizza recipe and have now come full-circle. The original calzoni from Italy were oven-baked folded-over individual pizzas made to be eaten on the go. We keep our version simple with classic marinara sauce and shredded cheese in the middle, although you can fill yours with any other toppings you typically enjoy on pizza.
Like most vegetable-centric recipes in Nourish, this lasagna alternative tastes the best with garden-fresh eggplants and herbs. We don’t make it too often but on the occasions when we do, the dish is thoroughly enjoyed by all.
This homemade alternative to the popular Chinese takeout appetizer is simple and satisfying. Our egg rolls are baked instead of fried, resulting in light and crispy vegetable-filled goodness. Sweet and sour sauce for dipping is a must.
Fried rice is one of the world’s most popular rice dishes and a superb way to use up leftovers. We stick to the classic Chinese-American recipe of crispy rice mixed with chopped vegetables, scrambled eggs, and a variety of seasonings.
Pesto is a wonderful Italian sauce traditionally consisting of basil, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, salt, and hard cheese all blended together. Prepared with garden-fresh basil and tossed with angel hair pasta is our favorite way to enjoy it.
Every Saturday evening, our family sits down together to savor this delicious Asian dish. Even the one meat-eater enjoys the crispy marinated tofu served over fluffy jasmine rice and drizzled with an addictive sesame sauce that there never seems to be enough of.
German “little sparrows” are uniquely-shaped egg noodles with a chewy dumpling-like texture. Simple ingredients of eggs, flour, and milk create a tasty and adaptable dish that you can make your own with the addition of fresh herbs, spices, proteins, and vegetables.
Chow mein, meaning “stir-fried noodles,” is created by pairing crispy vegetables and a luscious soy-inspired sauce with a protein source, in our case tofu. It’s another delicious Asian dish that’s easy to prepare at home and enjoyed by the whole family on a regular basis.
