Flavors of the World – Spice Blends

March is my favorite month of the year for so many reasons! I love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day (hello…my name is Erin), but it’s also National Nutrition Month! And for a Registered Dietitian, that’s code for celebrating all we do, all month long! Each year the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics creates a theme for this month and for 2022 it’s Celebrate a World of Flavors.

One way we love to explore the flavors of the world is by playing with different spices.

Easy Breakfast Cookies

Recipe by Erin Pellegrin RD, LDN

No, you’re not seeing things. There are only four ingredients in this recipe! Who doesn’t love that? Everyday items and simple pantry staples allow you to whip these together in no time. Plus, that last ingredient can vary greatly, so be creative. Want something a little more decadent? Add those chocolate chips. Or try dried fruit for some color and a hint of sweet. If you’re feeling adventurous – maybe you try both?!

Farro with Toasted Fennel, Lemon, and Basil

Recipe by Alison Roman in Nothing Fancy

I’ll be honest – I didn’t think I’d like this recipe as much as I did. However, the fennel and lemon pairing is so surprisingly tasty! Plus, there’s something magical that happens to these flavors when heat is thrown into the mix. Both the fennel and lemon can sometimes be quite strong, but let them cook on the stovetop together and their flavors settle a bit.

Vegetarian Chili for Two

You may recognize this recipe. I’ve made this before for a few Unite for HER events, but I think it’s just too good not to share here! I love a good chili recipe, but it usually yields so much! If you want a bowl of comfort, but don’t feel like pulling out the slow cooker or stock pot, definitely try this out. Plus,

Oven Baked Brothy Beans

Recipe courtesy of Justine Snacks

I love a good bean dish, especially when the beans are the star of the show. This recipe calls for simple ingredients that create quite a depth of flavor. You might think this is best served as an appetizer, but I say let it stand alone and enjoy each and every bite (because you will!).

Hard-Roasted Spiced Cauliflower

Recipe by Alison Roman in Nothing Fancy

This dish is truly nothing fancy in terms of its simplicity. However, the flavor that is created by combining just a few ingredients is magic. I like finishing it with some good, crumbled feta to add a fresh tang, but it certainly doesn’t need it if that’s not your thing. What I do know for sure though, is that I’m not making cauliflower any other way ever again!
