This is a very different way to eat cabbage. Cabbage is a great vegetable, full of vitamins and enzymes. It has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cancer prevention, digestive tract and cardiovascular support benefits. Need more? It is the fountain of youth!

What I did, is that I grilled a thick (about 1 inch) slice of cabbage in a pan with butter, olive oil and fresh garlic. It came out so, so good! I really recommend it. It can  be a nice vegetarian plate or a side to your main dish. Give it a try! I bet you are going to love it!

Today I cooked this absolutely delicious steak burgers! When I cook burgers at home, I like to have them without the bun, with cheese on top and some avocado slices. My husband had it with a thin bun, but this part is completely up to you.

This time I used two kind of cheeses. I topped it with gorgonzola cheese and then layered a thin slice of mild cheddar to cover the gorgonzola, I really liked it! Don’t forget about the avocado. Mmm! Just delicious!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I know the internet is full of spaghetti squash recipes. I recently discovered it and I found it amazing! You may have it if you are following a gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian or paleo diet,  or just for the fun of it! I rather eat a vegetable, which gives me fiber, energy carbs and vitamins, than just plain energy carbs from pasta. It is very easy to make and it comes out so delicious! It absorbs what ever condiment it may come to your mind.

Here is how I prepare it, scroll dow to find 2 ways to serve it, one with my Pesto Paste and another with ricotta and tomato sauce. Both of them delicious! Give it a try!

Soups are so convenient in cold days, I’m hoping for spring to come soon enough so I can start enjoying different kind of meals, more refreshing. But… meanwhile I am starting to say goodbye to soups, broths and everything in between. This soup is so light with a taste of dill which gives me a hint of freshness and spring! Very easy, just lots of chopping, but it goes fast. After the chopping everything goes very smooth and quickly. Enjoy!
