It’s been a year since we first launched our IDCO Menu Series, and it’s become something we look forward to every single week. Not only do we love culling the Internet for new recipes, but it’s also an opportunity to spotlight incredible content creators across the food blogging industry. This week, we’re sharing recipes from some of our longtime favorites (think Love & Lemons and All the Healthy Things) while introducing a few new names in the mix. You’ll meet Charles of The Salted Table and Michelle Lopez of Hummingbird High, plus you’ll walk away with a 100% done-for-you meal plan to help simplify your week.
We can always count on Williams Sonoma for recipes that elevate the everyday classics. This time around, they’re reinventing everyone’s go-to chicken breast meal with a Mediterranean twist. You’ll use savory artichoke hearts to pair with your protein and a generous dose of white wine, lemon and parsley for tons of added flavor. Serve over orzo, brown rice, or let this dish be a meal all its own.
We recently discovered mom-blogger Sarah J. Hauser, who’s got a serious knack for recipe creation. Her blog features a wide array of eats and drinks, with tons of ideas for special diets like gluten-free, whole30, dairy-free and vegan. We’ve found her recipes are equal parts beautiful, approachable, and not intimidating in the least. Take this weeknight pasta, for example. You’ll use a handful of ingredients to create a fresh, easy, and healthy dinner, and it all comes together in a matter of minutes.
If you have yet to discover The Salted Table, allow us to introduce you to chef Charles. He’s a personal chef and recipe developer based in Nashville who happens to run a great food blog with recipes, ideas, and tips for the home cook. Since patio season is finally here, we’re adding his grilled ribeye to our weekly menu, which he’s deeming “the ultimate steak.” Head over to his blog for the step-by-step tips, and don’t forget the side of buttery grilled asparagus.
When it comes to simple dinner ideas, we’re always up for a good flatbread. Especially when fresh veggies and creamy cheese are involved. For this recipe, you’ll start by grilling your naan or flatbread for roughly five minutes. TIP: if you’re short for time, we highly recommend picking some pre-made flatbreads up from the store. From there, you’ll add the toppings, drizzle with a basil vinaigrette, slice up, and enjoy.
Now that (safe) outdoor gatherings are beginning to pick up, it’s nice to have a few party-friendly recipes ready in your back pocket. This spring veggie platter perfectly fits the bill with an array of veggies, dips, cheeses and snacks. From the spinach hempseed pesto to the white bean dill dip, this spread is a celebration of spring with options to suit a wide array of special diets. Just add wine for the ultimate al fresco celebration.
Just because you or a family member might be gluten-free doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a carb-filled brunch. Thanks to All the Healthy Things, we’re reinventing the french toast casserole using GF bread and a mix of full fat coconut milk and unsweetened almond milk as non-dairy options. Add your eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and butter for that classic flavor, and don’t forget the orange zest for a subtle citrus kick.
We’re no strangers to a good iced coffee. But those frequent Starbucks visits can add up in a hurry. Luckily, Michelle of Hummingbird High is here to save the day with her recipe for overnight iced coffee you can easily make at home. This specific recipe features New Orleans-style coffee with chicory, a spice made from a floral root. Michelle shares some tips to find chicory if it’s not available at your local store (hint: Amazon) to bring that rich, sweet flavor to your morning cup of coffee.
