Are you guys ready for some delicious and easy grain free breakfast inspiration?! Meet these everything (but the) bagel sheet pan eggs with smoked salmon!
Also known as my favorite way to indulge in my love of everything bagels WITHOUT eating a bagel.
Because Nyssa + gluten = do not play well together.
But I do miss everything bagels! They were always my first pick at the bagel shop or alongside my brunch plate. And I know there’s a whole camp of us everything bagel loving friends out there!
I had been seeing various blogger friends and real life friends sprinkling Trader Joe’s everything but the bagel spice on ALL THE THINGS on instagram and I’m not sure whyyy it took me so long to get on that train but I’ll tell you – I’m never buying a ticket back.
Even though Spring has officially “arrived”, we are (of course) still in the middle of our rainy season here in Seattle, and so we’re still taking comfort in a delicious pan of roasted veggies now and then! This week it’s black pepper roasted carrots with savory cilantro yogurt and toasted almonds.
All the yummm!!
And really, as long as it’s not too hot to turn on the oven, I feel like roasted veggies always have a place in the kitchen, no matter what the season is. There’s just something so amazing about the caramlized sweetness and intensity of flavor that you get when you roast vegetables. It really adds a level of complexity and focus that keeps you coming back for another bite!
And carrots are probably one of my all time favorites to roast, if you can’t tell from my recipes 😉
Once again, we’ve made it through another week! And I’m here with some mega tasty brunch vibes to kick off your weekend right. I’ve been working on this one for a while, and I’m SO excited to present to you: paleo mediterranean eggs benedict! Also known as the queen of paleo benedicts.
It’s getting closer to spring by the minute (!!!) – can you feel it?!
As it does we’re lightening up our daily meals a little bit here and there to get into the nice-weather-mode.
More fresh veggies and bright flavors, please! It’s always amazing + beautiful to me how much our food mirrors the season changes.
Food = sustenance for the body and SOUL.
The base of this benedict is FULL of a giant rainbow of body + soul nourishing vegetables. It starts with roasted spiced sweet potato planks on the bottom, which are piled high with a tangled + bright lemony salad of arugula, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and red onion – it’s brightness contrasting perfectly against the decadence of the poached eggs and paprika spiked tahini hollandaise sauce.
