For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  1. Simmer sliced potatoes until tender when pierced with a fork.
  2. Spread the cooked potatoes out on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper and let them cool. The warm potatoes will absorb the delicious lemony flavor.

Transfer the cooled potatoes to a serving bowl. Fold in the lemon zest and fresh minced oregano, then the potato salad is ready to eat.

Storing

Leftover potato salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Add a squeeze of lemon before serving to refresh the flavors. This dish does not freeze well.

FAQ

Can you use yellow potatoes instead of red potatoes?

Yes, yellow potatoes like Yukon Gold, or other thin-skinned yellow or white potatoes can be used in place of red potatoes. On the other hand, russet potatoes are not a good substitute.

Can you use a grater to zest a lemon?

If you don’t have a Microplane or lemon zester, a box grater can be used. Or use a vegetable peeler to remove the yellow outer layer of the lemon and then finely chop it with a knife.

Can you use dried oregano instead of fresh?

If fresh oregano is unavailable, you can substitute 1 teaspoon dried oregano for the 1 tablespoon fresh.

📋 Recipe

  • ▢ 2 pounds small red potatoes, unpeeled, sliced ¼ -inch thick
  • ▢ ¼ cup olive oil
  • ▢ 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, (reserve lemon zest before juicing)
  • ▢ salt and pepper, to taste
  • ▢ 1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
  • ▢ zest of one lemon
  • ▢ Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with one inch of water. Add a little salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
  • ▢ Drain the potatoes and spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper for easier clean up. It’s okay if the edges of the potatoes overlap a little.
  • ▢ In a small bowl whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper together. Use a spoon to drizzle the mixture over the potatoes. Allow the potatoes to rest for about 15 minutes until room temperature.
  • ▢ Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl. Fold in the oregano and lemon zest. Taste and adjust for salt and pepper. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate for later.

Success tip:

Be sure to zest the lemon before you squeeze out the juice.

Substitutions:

  • Yellow potatoes like Yukon Gold, or other thin-skinned yellow or white potatoes can be used in place of red potatoes. However, russet potatoes are not a good substitute.
  • If fresh oregano is unavailable, you can substitute 1 teaspoon dried oregano for the 1 tablespoon fresh.

Storing:

Leftover potato salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Add a squeeze of lemon before serving to refresh the flavors.

Bursting with flavor from fresh herbs, cinnamon, and cumin, this vegan shredded carrot and orange salad is easy to make in 15 minutes. It’s light and refreshing and compliments a variety of dishes from rice pilaf to chickpea stew. Jump to:

Carrots often play a supporting role in soup, stew, and sauce recipes. But here they take center stage in this vibrant raw salad.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Best Roasted Cauliflower with Dijon Mustard

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • You can make it in 15 minutes (or less, if you use store-bought shredded carrots).
  • The fragrant spices and fresh herbs impart delicious Moroccan-inspired sweet- and-savory flavors.
  • It goes with just about everything and can be made in advance.

Ingredients

  • Carrots: Purchase them pre-shredded or use a food processor or box grater to shred them yourself.
  • Oranges: Cut them into segments by removing the bitter white pith and chewy membranes.
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Fresh mint
  • Homemade dressing: Combine olive oil, juice from the oranges, ground cinnamon, ground cumin, pure maple syrup, and salt and pepper.

I like the use herb scissors with 5 blades to quickly and easily cut the fresh herbs. It even works well when the herbs are still wet from rinsing them.

Shredding carrots with a box grater and in a food processor

How to shred carrots

  1. Use the large grate on a box grater: This method works best if your carrots are large. Peel the carrots and cut off the top and bottom tips. Shred the carrots over a cutting board or plate.
  2. Use a food processor with the shredding blade: This is my preferred method. Peel the carrots, remove the ends, and half or quarter the carrots so that the pieces fit inside the cylinder of the food processor lid. Turn on the machine and push the carrots down against the shredding blade. Quick and easy!
  3. Purchase pre-shredded carrots at the supermarket: This may be the most time-saving option. If the carrots appear a little dried out, place them in a colander and run cold water over them. If you have more than you need for this recipe, you can use the rest of the carrots in other salads. Or you can add them to pasta sauce, rice pilaf, or stir fry.

How to cut citrus into segments

  1. Using a sharp paring knife, slice off the top and bottom of the orange.
  2. Cut away the peel and white pith.
  3. Hold the orange over a bowl and slice between the membranes. This will release the individual segments. Save the juice to use in the dressing.
  4. For this recipe, if the segments are large, cut them in half so you end up with small chunks of orange.

Success tip

Reserve the juice that comes out of the orange when you are cutting it into segments and use it in the dressing.

For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Instructions

Making this salad is really easy. Simply mix the dressing ingredients in a small jar or bowl, pour them over the carrots, oranges, cilantro, and mint, and toss well to coat all the ingredients.

Serving suggestions

This salad goes well with just about everything from casual lunches to holiday dinners. And it’s a great choice for potlucks and picnics.

Storing

Leftover salad can be covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days. Toss to recombine the ingredients before serving. Do not freeze.

FAQ

Can I shred the carrots a day before making a salad?

Yes, you can shred the carrots and store them covered in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

How many carrots equal a cup?

Depending on the size of the carrots, 2 to 3 shredded carrots equal a cup.

Should I keep carrots in the fridge?

Yes, whole unpeeled carrots should be stored in the refrigerator in the product drawer. They will last up to a month.

What are orange segments called?

Another name for the segments after the bitter white pith and chewy membranes are removed is supremes.

What does Moroccan food taste like?

Moroccan cuisine uses a lot of fragrant spices like turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, and ginger. It has a lot of flavor but is mild rather than spicy “hot”.

My most favourite vegan chef is Richa Hingle, known to the world as Vegan Richa. Hot on her heels is another tremendous vegan chef, Brandi Doming, or The Vegan 8 (the 8 representing that her recipes contain 8 ingredients or less).

I discovered The Vegan 8 on Instagram and fell in love with Doming’s baked goods — me being the obsessed baker that I am. I would love to bake than cook any day. Truly my great love besides family and animals is baking.

Steamed Apple Pudding

The Magick Kitchen

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I do love a steamed vegan pudding.

I’m such a fan I don’t like having to wait for nearly two hours for my puds to steam. So I cheat; I use the microwave to speed up the cooking time to only 4 mins, or so.

I replaced the egg with a chickpea batter made with water and gram flour. Added in some chopped apple, and apple puree. And replaced the milk with non-dairy milk.

So here it is:

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Feed Your Beauty

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

This week marked a first for me in kitchen experiments. I baked my very first loaf of homemade bread, from scratch (i.e. no bread maker!). There was a lot of kneading (making bread is a full body workout, ya’ll), a lot of waiting, some serious through-the-oven-door watching, and then a whole bunch more impatient waiting. When it was finally done, cooled, sliced, (slathered with today’s almond butter) and eaten, I felt some serious satisfaction. I made bread. Breeeeaaaaaadddd! Breeeaaaaadddd!! With my own two hands.

The Best Homemade Almond Butter

Making your own almond butter can bring you that very same deep sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, but without the upper body workout, blood, sweat, and tears that making bread from scratch entails. In fact, your kitchen gadgets do all work for you. Hmm… maybe that’s why people buy breadmakers.

Best Classic Tomato Soup Recipe 🍅

Classic Tomato Soup
imageBy Lena Abraham
Oct 11, 2018
by Delish US

There’s really nothing more comforting than a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup. We prefer using canned tomatoes rather than fresh because they tend to be packed in peak season—that means they’re perfectly ripe! PLUS, the skins are removed. That means less work for you!

Recipe…

Yields: 6 servings
Prep Time: 0 hours 10 mins
Total Time: 0 hours 30 mins

Ingredients

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish

1 small yellow onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

2 tbsp. tomato paste

1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish

2 (28-oz.) cans whole peeled tomatoes

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 c. water or vegetable stock

Directions

In a large pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 6 minutes. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, and tomato paste and cook until garlic is fragrant and tomato paste has darkened, 2 to 3 minutes more.
Add thyme and both cans tomatoes, including the juice. Add water or vegetable stock and bring up to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes.
Blend with immersion blender or transfer to a blender in batches and blend until smooth. Ladle into bowls and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh thyme leaves.
