Lavender Salt

GLUTEN-FREE  |  DAIRY-FREE  |  DETOX-FRIENDLY


Autumn is the season to dry fresh herbs that won't last the winter, like lavender flowers. You can savor them all winter long with this unusual condiment. Use it as a finishing salt for lamb, chicken, scallops, roasted vegetables, fresh fruit, and chocolate desserts. Incorporate it into French-style vinaigrettes and dishes that contain lemon, which pairs so well with lavender.

Sweet and Sour BBQ Tofu Lettuce Wraps

GLUTEN-FREE | GRAIN-FREE | DAIRY-FREE | VEGETARIAN


Looking for a new take-along lunch? This meal is light and healthy but also filling. And it travels well.

Serve it one night as an appetizer alongside a pile of fresh lettuce leaves. Each person can spoon some of the tofu mixture onto a lettuce leaf, then wrap it up and eat it. Take the leftovers for lunch the following day. Pack the lettuce leaves and tofu mixture separately, and re-heat the tofu mixture or eat it cold. Either way it's a winner.
