LOTS of FOOD PORN

If that title doesn’t draw you in….I really don’t know what will.  I have been eating recently, although a lot of things are repeats I’ve made before or too simple to bother photographing (do you really need to see my umpteenth salad again?  Probably not…) but whenever I make a good looking plate I do [...]

Vegan Passover Kugel

I’m already very much over this whole Passover thing—although I must admit my diet is much more varied then back in the days when I had to survive Passover at a University Cafeteria….8 days of salad and nothing but salad got REAL old.  I was at my parents for the first couple nights and brought [...]

Vegetarian Hot Pot and Cosmo “Meatballs”

So my new obsession is the recipe sidebar option on google as of last week, where you can enter ingredients in the search bar (as I’ve been doing for years) and then select the ingredients you don’t want included on the side, the time you’re willing to spend cooking, and even the number of calories [...]

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.  [...]

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, [...]

Broccoli-Corn Salad and Mediteranean Pizza

When you’ve got some beautifully colored veggies and it’s a hot summer day, cooking things seems almost criminal, and when I hit on the idea for a quick broccoli-corn salad, I knew it was paydirt.  This was delish (as Rachael Ray would say) and quick and easy.  I did blanch the broccoli a bit…but shhhh!  [...]

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 [...]

Italian Vegetable Soup and Maple Mustard Baked Veggies

I made a soup that was in the grocery circular…and it was ok, but nothing special.  Here: Tomato Sauce, broth and lots of veggies was the name of the game…it would’ve been better with some fresh breadsticks or something to dip.  It’s also getting  a bit warm for soup, so maybe that’s why I was [...]

Garden Challenge

So this week, something pretty awesome happened.  Michelle gave me a VERY exciting bag of fresh veggies from her garden, and the challenge was to make a meal with them that was easily accessible to all eaters (veggies and omnis alike) and delicious (duh).  I decided to make one dish with the head of cabbage [...]
