Potato-Turnip Green Soup and Green Thai Curry

I’m not entirely sure what makes potato-kale soup latina…it’s a dish I’ve done before in several varieties, and I don’t find it terribly innovative in a Vegan cookbook anymore, but it’s good nonetheless (especially with the days cooling down as they have been) and I did like the addition of some fried-up sausage on top.  [...]

Quick Red Posole with Beans

I did warn you that I’d probably be making nothing but Mexican food for awhile, and this one, also from Viva la Vegan is no exception….it is also probably my new favorite comfort food…hands down.   Then again I have a new favorite comfort food every two weeks…I’m just a flip-flopper like that. I followed the [...]

Tofu Calabrese

This is another idea I got from my girl Rachael Ray….she was making Chicken Calabrese on her show last week and it looked so darn good (minus the chicken and bacon) that I had to give it a try with tofu…and so I did.  I thought this was ok, and since it was one of [...]

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes and Chickpea Curry over Rice

These two things are pretty different and not really both necessary in a single meal, but I figured since I was making one I might as well do both and have leftovers…which is how it went down, and not to surprise, I loved the one I’d had before and was lukewarm about the other, although [...]

Steamed Veggie Wontons

There’s this rumor going around that wontons are supposed to be fried, and I must admit I’ve fallen pray to it in the past…there is after all, something pretty satisfying about that crunch.  I had a totally out-of-the-box idea last week though, I looked at the wonton wrappers I’d picked up at the Asian Market, [...]

Cold Chickpea Salad and Mushroom Stuffed Eggplant

This is going to sound weird…but while I love falafel and Hummus (basically two different forms of chickpeas) I generally don’t like the things whole…if it actually looks like a chickpea…9 times out of 10, I’m not interested.  It was REALLY hot last week though, and I simply didn’t have the patience to make hummus, [...]

Indian Loaf and Spinach

I had been craving Indian flavors, and although the recipe I was looking at called for a quinoa loaf with absolutely nothing Indian about it, I felt I could take it in an India direction, and that’s exactly what I did…although it’s pretty darn spicy, so I wouldn’t recommend eating without a healthy dollop of [...]

Pecan Brussels

I think there should be a medical name for my addiction to oven-roasted brussels sprouts.  I can literally go through a pound and a half of these by myself, the same way some people go through a bag of  potato chips.  (Not me, I don’t particularly like potato chips).  I think it’s something about the [...]

Vegetable Millet

I wanted a grain that was a bit off the beaten-track the other day (unlike pasta and rice, which I see all the time) and unearthed about a cup of millet in my pantry.  I googled the liquid to millet ratio (it’s 2 to 1 in case you were wondering) and simply sauteed whatever veggies [...]

Potato, Corn and Avocado Chaat

I’m convinced that everyone on this planet has a shopping problem.  A lot of girls have a shoe problem  (I know some guys that have a shoe problem too).  Or a purse problem.  Many of my favorite people (including myself, I admit it) have a book problem.  But my biggest weakness?  Ingredients.  Whenever I’m out [...]
