Avocado, tofu and spicy peanut rice spring rolls

Adding the sauce straight to the rice — rather than serving it on the side — make these spring rolls great for one-the-go action. It may take you a few tries to master the spring roll wrap, but it’s a really fun way to interact with your food. Just be sure to put the herbs down first so they can be showcased through the translucent rice paper.

Grilled beets and peaches with poppyseed dressing

I’m clinging on to every last excuse to use the grill before fall really kicks in. These beets took on a nice, mildly smoky flavor, and the scallion and peaches tasted all-out grilled. Tip for the beets: If the paper towel method for rubbing away the skin seems like too much of a mess, run the beets under cold water while peeling instead.

I'm sort of new to the radish game, and I definitely have learned to appreciate them this spring. Mostly, I love the color and bite they gives simple dishes.

Deviled eggs are great to take to a party - but fancy deviled eggs are even better.

To hard boil eggs

Place eggs in a medium or large saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover eggs by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Cover the pot and remove from heat. Let stand 13 minutes. Drain and transfer eggs to ice-water bath until cold.

Roasted red pepper deviled eggs

  • 12 eggs
  • 5 roasted red peppers – from a jar or from scratch
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Cook eggs according to directions above. Once cooled, slice in half and remove the yolks, mixing with a fork until smooth.

In a food processor, chop the red pepper into very small pieces. Using the tines of a fork, drain most of the liquid out.

Mix the pepper with the yolks, garlic powder, vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Fill the egg whites with the mixture and refrigerate.

It's nice to balance something hot/spicy (wasabi) with something milder (red pepper) so you can please different tastes.

To garnish, slice very thin pieces of the roasted red pepper and place on the filling of each egg.

Makes 24 deviled eggs.

Wasabi deviled eggs

  • 8 eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 or 2 teaspoons of wasabi paste (depends on how hot you like it)
  • 2 teaspoons unseasoned rice-wine vinegar
  • 2 large scallions, minced (3 tablespoons), plus extra for garnish
  • salt

Cook eggs according to directions above. Once cooled, slice in half and remove the yolks, mixing with a fork until smooth.

Combine the yolks with the wasabi paste (start with less then add more as you taste), vinegar, scallions and salt. Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture.

Garnish with the extra scallions.

Makes 16 deviled eggs.

Both recipes adapted from: Martha Stewart (red pepper and wasabi)
