Sesame Orange Tempeh over Couscous

I’m still of the belief that if I combine couscous with Asian flavors, it is an Asian ingredient…as long as no one tells the Japanese or the Moroccans about it, I suppose I’m safe.  You may not want to tell the Chinese either, now that I think about it.  I was making a friend’s recipe [...]

Potato-spinach Knishes, VwaV Pad Thai, Hoisen Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and Red Velvet Mole

So I’m finally back from vacation, things are starting to settle back into a rhythm (just starting, I’ve got a ways to go yet) and I figured it’s time I write a bit about the last couple things I made before leaving for the West Coast, as well as the first couple meals I made [...]

Coming off an Injury with Fava Beans and Couscous

I realize its been awhile, but I’ve got a good excuse.  I got in a serious car accident about a week and a half ago now, and broke my collarbone, so after the eight and a half hours in the emergency room, I was all wound up in this intense sling/brace combination thing, and couldn’t [...]

First Meal Back: Asparagus with Tomato Relish

Well for better or worse..I’m back from the amazing program in California.  I was pretty concerned about having someone else cook for me an entire month, but I needn’t have worried…Miguel (the head cook there) is AMAZING and makes more than enough food options at every meal to please everyone.  I did miss complex carbs [...]

Fried Rice style Couscous

We all crave Chinese food sometimes (and if you say those little cardboard cartons full of grease and carbs don’t call out to you on occasion, you are either a stronger person than me….or lying.  So there.  That craving hit the other night, but I was of the belief that I could satisfy it without [...]

Clementine Baked Beans over Tomato-Caper Couscous

I scored a really awesome cookbook from a really awesome friend recently, and although at first I thought it was a bit late for slow cooker recipes…I’ve changed my mind.  There’s nothing wrong with a little slow-cooker action in early spring, and to be honest it doesn’t give off nearly as much heat as the [...]

Not Israeli-Israeli Couscous and a FRESH Ragu

I’ve made a lot of couscous in my time, and eaten a lot too, but ironically the only kind I don’t like is “Israeli” Couscous, and by that I mean the kind with the huge chewy pearls that remind me of a cross between tapioca and millet…not really a plan.  Then again, as I see [...]

Couscous with Tofu

I wasn’t in the mood to cook much (if at all…has it been hot and humid forever???) so my first thought was couscous.  You really only need to boil water for the couscous itself, and by the time you pour in the grain you can turn off the heat, so in terms of summer foods…it’s [...]

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 [...]

Tofu Curry with Peach Chutney

We’re calling this meal Indian Fusion since I didn’t actually reference any recipes, and I’m pretty sure anything that I create by grabbing “this and that” can’t be any closer to traditional Indian food than fusion.  It was delicious though, so fusion or not, I’ll call it a success.  There were a couple peaches heading [...]
