Instant Pot Coconut Curry Chicken

By Gina Caputo

Instant Pot Coconut Curry Chicken
We had a freak September snow storm and after eating lots of cool grain bowls, grills, tacos and salads, it seemed like an invitation to bust out the ole Instant Pot again! After just a little prep in chopping, this one pot wonder has that glorious combo of tomatoes and coconut milk, is a breeze to make and is full of flavor. It also invites innovation with other veggies and can be made omni or vegan!

Salmon, Cilantro Rice & Avocado Crema
I've always loved the cilantro rice from Chipotle so I started making my own a long time ago by copying what I saw them do! Adding fresh corn to it was an amazing uplevel and I'm always trying to get my greens to I started adding lime-massaged kale to it too.

Get Stone(d) Salad

Get Stone(d) Salad
Stone FRUIT that is! This is a double-protein summer salad that takes advantage of stone fruits like nectarines and peaches being in season! I'm loving the combo of fruit in my savory salads lately and this was my latest culinary exploration. The earthiness of the lentils goes so well with the stone fruit which also juices up the chicken!

When zucchini is in season, this is a go-to for one of the fastest dinners around. The combination of lemon and herbs with al dente zucchini and just done shrimp is perfect on a hot day when you want to keep the stove and oven time to a bare minimum. It's light but satisfies. And leaves room for dessert!

Thai Chicken Salad

By Gina Caputo

Thai Chicken Salad
I love how Thai food combines things I love like coconut milk, lime and cilantro.  I was craving those flavors and wanted a salad but needed something more substantial than just lettuce so I added some cilantro-lime basmati rice and basically made a chopped Thai salad with peanut sauce on top. It's a keeper!

Balanced Breakfast Bonanza

Balanced Breakfast Bonanza Bowl - Ayurveda Breakfast Bowl by Gina Caputo

When I make One Bowl Wonders, I love to combine flavors, textures and temperatures. When it comes to flavors, I try to include as many of the 6 Ayurvedic flavors as I possibly can. It is believed that the most well-balanced, nourishing meals reflect all 6 tastes: sweet, salty, sour, astringent, bitter, pungent (spicy). So when Kashi asked me to shift gears and make a breakfast One Bowl Wonder, I wanted to stay true to my process and combine hot oatmeal with cool, smooth yogurt and dry, crunchy Kashi as well as fold in all 6 Ayurvedic tastes!
