Spotlight on Green Tea Grapefruit: Recipe Pairings

These dishes are Mediterranean-inspired with a focus on herbs that pair really well with the light, fresh, citrus notes of Green Tea Grapefruit.

  • Toasted nuts with pepper & herbs - Enjoy as an appetizer or snack with a cold Green Tea Grapefruit SkinTē. For a happy hour twist, add a splash of limoncello or orange liqueur to your glass.

    What You’ll Need

    • 1 cup nuts (I used pre-salted because that’s what I had on-hand)
    • ¼ tsp herb seasoning – use one that's just herbs to better control salt. I used an Italian herb blend
    • Cracked pepper to taste (plus salt if using unsalted nuts)

    1. Toast nuts in a dry non-stick pan over medium heat or in a 350 degree oven until you can smell them and they glisten (about 5-7 min)
    2. Add herb seasoning and pepper to the pan or sheet tray and mixed while nuts are hot. The oils the nuts release will help the herbs and pepper stick.
  • Spiced Chicken thighs – two different classic seasoning blends make this quick and easy.

    What You’ll Need

    • Chicken thighs with skin removed (can also use boneless)
    • Berbere seasoning + salt & pepper (berbere can be pretty spicy so go easy unless you want HEAT)
    • Za’atar blend + pepper (most Za’atar blends already contain salt)
    • Lemon wedges

    Get Cookin’

    1. Season the chicken pieces with either the berbere or za’atar seasonings (I like to do half/half)
    2. I hot-smoked at 425, but you can grill, or roast too. Most important is to make sure the chicken is cooked through
    3. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the chicken just before serving
  • Tabbouleh – grain-free riff that also leaves out tomatoes

  • What You’ll Need

    • 1 cup cauli-rice, steamed
    • 2 large bunches fresh parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 small bunch mint leaves, finely chopped
    • 1 bunch scallions, chopped
    • Juice of 2 lemons
    • ½ c olive oil
    • Salt & pepper to taste

    Mix everything together and season to taste with salt & pepper. If you can, make this a few hours in advance.

    Quick-pickled cucumbers – crunchy, spicy

  • What You’ll Need

    • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tbsp dill, chopped
    • 1 tbsp honey
    • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
    • Hothouse cucumber, cut into spears
  • Get Cookin’

    Mix first four ingredients in a shallow dish. Add cucumber spears and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Pull from marinade to serve with chicken and tabbouleh. YUM!

  • DR. B'S NOTES

    Each of these mouthwatering recipes contains delicious herbs you probably already have in your pantry. But, did you know that the culinary herbs we take for granted in our kitchens have been used as medicine for eons? Dr. B says rosemary, oregano, and thyme are helpful in supporting the microbiome and immune system. Mint is especially good for skin and has been shown to help acne. Parsley is not just a garnish—It’s one of the most nutritious plants you can eat and loaded with vitamins and minerals.
