Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Enchiladas are essentially baked burritos—rolled tortillas filled with savory, tasty fillings, then baked with salsa. The cumin and coriander in this dish pair really well to give the enchiladas a warm, savory flavor and a great aroma.

Dominican Hot Chocolate

The classic combination of spices in this hot chocolate brings out a depth of flavor that balances between bitter, earthy, and slightly sweet notes. Perfect for a winter day, especially when you’re snowed in and trying to get cozy by the fireplace!

Bourbon Mushrooms

Bourbon mushrooms are traditionally prepared with butter, cream, and beef broth and served with a side of steak. In this recipe, it's the mushrooms that absorb the unique flavors of the savory sauce, while also adding a chewy texture.

Baked Tomatoes with Lentils

Compared to other dried beans, lentils cook quickly and easily. They work well in stuffings and loaves. I especially like them with tomatoes, onions, garlic, and oregano. To make a heartier stuffing, I like to use whole grain bread crumbs.

Dominican Chapea

When I'm in the Dominican Republic, this is one of my favorite stews to make. Chapea tastes different in each house-some like it with chayote squash instead of butternut squash (pumpkin); others add broccoli or green plantains and skip the carrots.

Sweet and Sour Fusion Soup

This soup brings together several vivid and dynamic flavors. The pineapple will remind you of tropical destinations, and the lime adds that touch of acidity, but there’s also a more mild sweetness to support and balance them out.

Easy Veggie Pad Thai

Most restaurants serve pad thai with an oil-based fish sauce. This version is oil-free and plant-based but still boasts that delicious combination of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors.

Potato Rolls

Potato rolls have a softer, more moist texture than the traditional dinner rolls you might be used to, and they’re versatile enough to go with almost any meal you would normally eat with bread.

Greek Salad with Tofu “Feta”

This Greek salad is great as a side with pizza or pasta. It can also be served on its own with whole grain bread. For the salad greens, I prefer a balanced mixture of arugula, spinach, and romaine lettuce. The peppery flavor of the arugula goes really well with the Kalamata olives and marinated tofu!

Tomatillo & Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

This is one of those dishes that you can have two or three times a week and still want more. To satisfy this craving, I often double or triple the sauce recipe, then keep it in my refrigerator or freezer, making it easier and quicker to prepare the next time.

Stuffed Baked Apples

This simple, comforting dessert celebrates the holiday season with the abundant fragrance of baked apples, pecans, and a dusting of cinnamon and allspice. Be sure to make enough for everyone: the enticing aroma will fill your home with watering mouths.

Peanut Kale Soup

It’s a good idea to make big batches of this dish—it’s one of those soups where everyone goes back for seconds, thirds, and yes, sometimes fourths. If you don’t have kale on hand, use collard greens or spinach.

Pigeon Pea Escabeche

These marinated pigeon peas, high in protein and fiber, are ideal for the holiday season. Enjoy with baked cassava, baked tortilla chips, or as a filling for a burrito or wrap. The flavors intensify in the refrigerator overnight.

Orange Ginger Roasted Vegetables

This dish blends the wholesome flavors of the earth with two of the most energetic flavors in the culinary toolbox. The brightness of the citrus and the bite of the ginger might seem like a lot on their own, but the roasted veggies keep them down to earth.
