Tofu Mole Tacos

Tofu Mole Tacos! Fried tofu cubes simmered in a homemade vegan mole sauce made with dried chiles, tomatoes, garlic, spices, and sesame seeds

My husband Chris has never enjoyed any mole sauces he’s tried; they are all sweeter than he likes. He’s also not enamored with glazed meat, sweet barbecue sauces or even ketchup, really. So my self-imposed mission was to use inspiration from this recipe and this recipe to come up with a not-too-sweet Puebla-style red mole…

Carrot Turmeric Soup

Carrot turmeric soup - add fresh turmeric rhizomes or dried turmeric to this simple carrot soup for a peppery bite, a golden color, and anti-inflammatory benefits! Hilahcooking.com

(You can leave the turmeric out of carrot turmeric soup and you’d be left with regular carrot soup, just like magic!) Really the only reason I added turmeric is because I had some fresh turmeric rhizomes. You ever do that? Find something unusual at your regular store and buy it before you know what to…

Homemade Microwaveable Burritos

homemade microwaveable burritos

I’ve been making my own microwaveable burritos since I was in college. True, I don’t make them often any more since I don’t need to pack a lunch anymore but recently I got an email asking about homemade microwaveable burritos so I thought I’d share. SORRY THE PICTURE IS SO UNINSPIRING. I really did try. The thing…

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

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…
