Butternut squash and mung bean salad

Butternut squash and mung bean salad

Mung beans are a legume in the same family as lentils and peas. It has many health benefits including a high source of fiber, protein and antioxidants and originated in India. You can often find it in the legume section of your supermarket, but if you can’t you can always use any kind of lentils instead!

Garlic chicken

Garlic chicken

This is one of my favorite pargiot (chicken) dishes. I love making garlic this way because I make a big batch of it and it lasts for weeks in the fridge. I use the garlic as needed in chicken, salads or on crackers and I use the olive oil for cooking or in salad dressings. It is just a win win!

Whole fish with olives

Whole fish with olives

Don’t be afraid of a whole fish and don’t be afraid if the skin comes off a bit when you are turning it over. Invest in a fish spatula and it will make a world of difference. I used an amazing blend of high quality olives (with pits!) but feel free to use whichever olives you like best. If you don’t like whole fish or don’t want to deal with the bones, you can make this dish with fish filet, just cook it for half the time and add only half the amount of water.
