Whether you’re cooking it, growing it, reading about it, or eating it, food brings people together.
Today, we’re highlighting someone special. Someone who is teaching it and bringing it altogether using tools from her vocation and her passion for food.
Dr. Linda Shiue, M.D. started The Doctor’s Spice Box after a continuing education program at the Culinary Institute where she came to the realization that combining cooking and her job as a medical doctor is not only something that she could do, but something she should do.
She gathers inspiration from her culinary adventures all over the world from Trinidad to Hawaii and creates delicious recipes with healthy twists for her blog. In addition, Dr. Linda Shiue hosts cooking classes for not only her patients but also the general public interested in health and cooking.
For this article, we are featuring one of Dr. Linda Shiue’s simple and easy to make favorites:
Kale + Walnut Pesto
1 medium bunch kale chopped
1 medium bunch basil chopped
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
Add the olive oil first to a food processor. Then, add equal amounts of kale and basil. Lastly, add the walnuts and process to a coarse purée. Salt and Pepper to taste.
