Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce

roasted cherry tomato sauce-2

Summer is my favorite. Not just because of the long days and blue skies, but also for the tomatoes. Our closest farmers’ market has been having barrels and barrels of cherry tomatoes in all colors and I have been scooping them up by the shovelful and eating them all kinds of ways. This roasted cherry…

Lentil Salad with Fresh Herbs

lentil salad

I call this “lentil tabouli” in my mind, but I know some purists out there would suck my eyeballs out for saying that out loud. Which is why I’m calling it lentil salad here . . . but secretly to myself I’m singing “lentil tabouli, lentil tabouuuuuliiiiiii” all day long. It’s cause of all the herbs,…

Homemade GardenBurgers Recipe

These homemade GardenBurgers remind me so much of the original GardenBurger, which I was powerless over as a newly-vegetarian teenager. I don’t even know if that original burger is still made. I couldn’t find them recently when I was really craving one. So I made my own. My dad used to make a really good sandwich with…

Coconut Corn Chowder

Whenever we have popcorn for a snack — which is often — Chris makes it with coconut oil. The other night I guess must have been particularly in tune with my tastebuds or something, because it finally occurred to me how nicely the sweet coconut complemented the earthy popcorn. And that got me thinking about a…

No-Recipe One Pot Pasta (with whatever you have on hand!)

By now everyone has seen and probably tried one of the thousand one-pot pasta recipes which are floating around in the ethernet. I’ve heard from a handful of you about it and it seems that many of those existing recipes are … terrible pieces of shit. Encouraged by a friend online, I set out to figure…

Avocado Hummus

Avocado hummus! Have you ever heard of such a thing? I hadn’t until I tried some at a farmers’ market a couple weeks ago. Holy jeez. It was delicious, y’all. To make it at home, I adapted my basic hummus recipe (see how to make hummus for more pointers) and the olive oil gets replaced with a large avocado. And…

Coconut Curried Collard Greens

vegetarian cooking class

These curried collard greens are one of my favorite recipes from my Homestyle Vegetarian Cooking Course and I love ALL those recipes so it was a tough decision to make. I love the simplicity of preparation and the textural combination of thick, caramelized coconut milk, tender collard greens and nubby little chickpeas. I came up…

Vegetarian Stroganoff

I wanted to make something that tastes like a Philly cheesesteak, but with pasta and with no steak. So that leaves cheese and peppers and onions. And mushrooms I swear I’ve seen on some cheesesteaks but I’ve never been to Philly so I don’t know if that’s standard. Doesn’t really matter I guess, since I’m…

Jackfruit Tinga Tostadas

jackfruit tinga

I’ve wanted to experiment with green jackfruit for years — since I tried some vegan bbq jackfruit at a party once. This is a riff on chicken tinga which is from Puebla, Mexico: shredded chicken in a chipotle sauce. This jackfruit tinga uses the same sort of sauce made from onion, tomato and chipotle. It’s very…
