Green enchiladas with goat cheese

I love enchiladas. It’s a great way to stuff some ingredients into a tortilla, pop in the oven and somehow seem like you made an effort. For this enchilada, I happened to be craving broccoli and decided to run the green route.

Cilantro and jalapeno hummus

This hummus went up 10 notches just from sitting in the fridge for a few days. It’s great for dipping, but I’ve also been using it on wraps. It pairs extremely well with some pickled carrots and onions. Speaking of great pairings, how great would this green hummus be with some green beer?

Chicken salad with green tahini sauce and chickpeas

I made the tahini sauce before I ever considered using it on a chicken salad. I was spattering it occasionally on greens and roasted vegetables before I noticed the jar of sauce sitting next to a container of poached chicken. The best combinations are sometimes right in front of your face. (P.S. – Make this salad the night before and take it to work the next day. It’s best after sitting overnight.)

The original author of this recipe said the inspiration came from a deli-style Reuben sandwich — and I can definitely see it.

I saved my leftovers in a glass jar and snacked on it for a few days after.

Sauteed arugula with golden chickpeas, pine nuts and Parmesan. Round two: Shredded Parmesan and mixed in while warm so it melted.

The first time I made this, I sprinkled the Parmesan shavings over the warm arugula salad. I’ve always been a fan of shaving Parmesan, because it packs a lot of punch that way. The second time, I grated fresh Parmesan and stirred it into the mixture. The Parmesan got all stringy and gooey and wonderful. I think I liked that way better. Which way will you try?
