The Healing Kitchen

Cooking with Nourishing Herbs for Health, Wellness, and Vitality
Nourishing plants can have a profound effect on our health when incorporated into the foods we eat. By bringing herbs such as dandelion, purslane, sumac, and calendula into the kitchen—rather than limiting them to medicines or remedies—we can enjoy their flavors and reap their benefits. From Nettle Chai to Lavender Yogurt, Wild Greens Miso Paste, Lamb’s-Quarter Cavatelli, and Rose Petal Rice Pudding, the recipes here were created to please the palate and provide long-term health. Explore these everyday recipes to calm stress and anxiety, ease digestion, correct imbalances, build immunity, and promote overall wellness and longevity.
