Vegan Burger Bowl

The greatest challenge for me when going vegan was knowing how to cook a meal without a recipe (I write more about learning to cook without recipes here). I’m always on the look out for meal ideas that don’t involve complicated recipes, because I think that’s what’s going to help more people (including myself) eat […]

Asparagus Pizza & Strawberry Salad

Last Wednesday, I prepared asparagus pizza and a strawberry salad for dinner. It took less than thirty minutes, but felt gourmet. The pizza with the salad is satisfying, yet light. You can taste springtime. I got the recipe for Asparagus Pizza with Hazelnuts and Mint here. We’ve had a warm spring here in Portland, and I already […]

Autumn Flavors

In the past, I published a Butternut Squash Gnocchi recipe. This fall, I modified it by using Field Roast Apple Sage sausage in place of the cannellini beans. Field Roast is my favorite vegan “meat.” It’s soy-free, and made of grains and other all-natural ingredients. The apple sage sausage is truly perfect in this recipe. […]

Summer Improvisation

If you usually don’t trust yourself to cook without a recipe, the summer is the time to begin. With fresh herbs, and abundant local fruits and vegetables, it’s really hard to go wrong. My go-to summer combination is fresh vegetables, fresh herbs, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. If you have these items, […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This is one my favorite recipes I’ve come up with. I wrote it down a year or two ago on a stray piece of paper. When I looked back this weekend, I saw that my notes say: 3/4 cups 1 cup chocolate chips. That does sound like a decision I’d make! These muffins are so […]

Easy Weeknight Indian Food

I try not to buy a lot of pre-made foods, but two items are the exception: pasta sauce and curry sauce. Although I love the homemade versions of both, keeping the store-bought versions on hand make it more likely that I will actually cook something for dinner, rather than calling the local Thai restaurant. I’ve […]

My Favorite Weeknight Meal

My favorite weeknight meal is dal and samosas.  I know this sounds really complicated, and for a second there, you were probably really impressed with me.  However, I am going to let you in on exactly how easy this is. Step 1: Start Cooking Some Rice Before I do anything else, I put a cup of brown […]

Updated Oatmeal

If you are trying to cut back on animal products, you may find yourself worried about common nutrients available in them, particularly protein, iron, and calcium.  It’s a natural worry – we’re used to relying on animal products for these key nutrients and sometimes finding a replacement seems daunting.  However, there are many ways to […]

Salads

Adding a salad to meals is one of the easiest ways to eat more vegetables, yet we don’t always intuitively know how to make a good salad.  Or, if you’re like me, you may have relied on cheese, croutons, and creamy dressings to flavor your salads.  I’ve been trying to improve my salad making for […]

Tomato Orange Soup

I’ve always loved tomato soup, and for most of my life, couldn’t imagine it without the cream.  However, it’s really easy to make vegan soups feel “creamy,” simply by blending up your ingredients.  The following recipe also contains a secret ingredient to give it a smooth texture – baking soda!  I wish I could say […]
