Ali’s Skewers

We had these skewers first at my friend Ali’s house, and she sent me the recipe. I made them and they didn’t turn out quite as good, but they were still delicious. Note – the recipe as written makes a TON, I basically cut it in a third.

Ceviche Tacos

I tend to prefer ceviche plain, but these were pretty refreshing tacos.

Cheddar Broccoli Burgers

These were quite tasty – a good thing to make a big batch of for the week.

Impossible Taco Meat

Pretty good! I turned this into a basic taco salad originally, but the leftovers worked just as well the next day in crispy tacos.

Shrimp Hummus Bowls

These were really good! I used this for inspiration but A) just made my own hummus using the Zahav recipe and put about 1/4 cup in each bowl B) added about 1/4 cup couscous to my bowl. My version is below.

Grilled Steak Fajitas

These fajitas are basically perfect (no surprise they’re inspired by the original Ninfa’s in Houston). This makes a ton, and the leftover meat is really nice in a steak salad, too.

Esquites

Big hit at the crab feast we hosted. I subbed crema for the mayo and doubled the recipe for a crowd.

Farro and Tomatoes with Fish Sauce Vinaigrette

I made this for a party, and honestly didn’t have a ton of it, but I liked the vinaigrette while I was making it a lot. Will have to try it again sometime. The charred scallions are a nice touch.

Flank Steak Peperonata

We were quite into this – the pepper mixture almost upstaged the steak (which granted, I slightly overcooked).

Beach Bean Salad

A nice vinaigrette-based white bean salad recipe that has a lot of personality. I halved this (approximately; I used two cans beans and still used 3 peppers), and still ended up with a ton. Made it the day before which was the perfect amount of time to let things sit.
