Delicious recipes for the curious cook!
This time of year- right after the holiday binges, during the peak of the dark, cold nights of the winter- we all crave something both hearty and healthy. I was gifted two more Barefoot Contessa cookbooks for Christmas, thanks to my sister and fiancee, and both have not disappointed. In her newest cookbook, Cooking for Jeffrey, I discovered a recipe that was just what I was looking for in a winter weeknight meal.
This maple roasted carrot salad strikes the perfect balance thanks to it’s leafy greens, caramelized carrots, creamy cheese and juicy vinaigrette. If you’re looking for a healthy dinner that keeps you satisfied, this is a great option. On a cooking note, I substituted the maple syrup for agave nectar, which did the trick just as well.
Hopefully this is one way to help you stay on track with your resolutions and healthy choices in the new year. Enjoy!
