Kimchi noodle soup

What’s in the e-book?

The bonus recipe e-book contains just that: bonus recipes! We originally developed them for the cookbook, but we ran out of space to fit them in. We LOVE all of them, and I think you will too.

Recipe 1: Kimchi Noodle Soup

This recipe is perfect for cool days in early spring. Spiked with ginger, kimchi, and gochujang, the broth is tangy and lightly spicy, and it’s filled with slurp-able soba noodles and julienned veggies. Optional: top your bowl with a soft-boiled egg for a heartier meal.

Roasted Carrot Halloumi Bowls with Carrot Top Green Sauce

Recipe 2: Roasted Carrot Halloumi Bowls

If you know me, you know that I love a recipe that uses a whole vegetable, tops, skins, stems, and all. I add smoky roasted carrots to this vibrant grain bowl. Then, I use their tops to make a punchy green sauce to drizzle over it. These fresh components contrast beautifully with crispy roasted chickpeas, earthy bulgur, and rich, salty halloumi cheese.

Baked Broccolini and White Bean Skillet

Recipe 3: Baked Broccolini & White Bean Skillet

This recipe is a weeknight game changer! It comes together in a single skillet in under 30 minutes, AND it’s delicious. Big chunks of baked feta cheese top a flavorful layer of white beans and broccolini. Garnished with a nutty pistachio gremolata, it’s bright, fresh, and super satisfying.

Cauliflower Parmesan

Recipe 4: Cauliflower Parmesan

Like eggplant Parmesan, but, you know, cauliflower. It’s saucy, cheesy perfection.

Recipe 5: Granola Bars, 2 Ways

Surprise: this recipe is actually 2 recipes! I share an AMAZING base for homemade granola bars, plus two fun variations: Double Chocolate and Fruit and Nut. I’ve made a lot of homemade granola bar-type snacks over the years, and these are definitely my favorite. I can’t count how many batches I’ve made so far!

Half the recipes are “at-the-ready recipes,” which are simple to make and use basic ingredients. The rest are “in advance recipes,” which are designed for meal prep.

    Hi Jeanine, I have the book and love it, these recipes look so delicious. Is there any way to get these recipes now – I know the book is already out, so of course, pre order isn’t an option, the recipes you’ve shared in this post just look so intriguing!
