This messy sandwich uses the meatiest of all vegetables: the Portobello, a thick juicy mushroom that’s not at all like the slimy canned ones I came to fear in childhood. Grilled with a bit of garlic and balsamic, a smoky umami infuses the entire mushroom.
Delicata squash skin is edible and it roasts fairly quickly. The squash is simple to prepare—and the taste is sweet and tender. Our best-loved way to eat delicata squash is as fries: roasted half-moon slices that both the kids and adults in our lives rave over.
My quiches are totally pastry-less; I use thinly sliced sweet potatoes that bake until tender but crispy, adding a slightly sweet flavor, striking orange color, and whole host of nutrients.

These pretty kebabs made with pork tenderloin and rosemary branches create similar flavors to traditional Italian porchetta in a fraction of the time.
