raw pad thai bowl with tofu.

Generally, I don’t dig raw food. I find it hard to digest and truly, I just prefer the texture of slightly mushy cooked veggies. I am a toddler, apparently.  Great news, though: this isn’t the case for everyone! If you

stuffed portobello mushroom with tofu + garlic-pepper quinoa.

I’ve been working lately with a number of clients looking to create simple, quick weeknight dinners – half-planned and shopped for, and half thrown together using whatever’s in the kitchen. There’s something nice about knowing you have something nourishing and

ginger-citrus tofu powerbowl with bok choy + cashews.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about food and its connection with guilt and body shaming and self-loathing and control and feelings of wrongness.  Nice and light, right? ;) It seems like almost every woman I have spoken to lately

crispy baked tofu with shredded veggie quinoa.

I read a great article this week from Summer Tomato on finding your ideal weight. It’s something that I – and I think most people I know – think about a lot.  Despite being on this crazy food-body-health journey for

cauliflower-brazil nut puree with crispy tofu.

Can we talk for a second about mashed potatoes?  They’re sort of the quintessential comfort food, and let’s be real: there’s not a ton going on with them in their plainest form, neither nutritionally or in terms of taste. They’re

miso soup with garlicky lentils, kale + mushrooms.

Aaaaannnnddd… we’re back!  Thanks so much for your patience the last couple of weeks as recovering and travel have taken over blog time. I have a whole slew of fun new recipes for the month ahead (how is it almost

homemade chickpea socca with sauteed spinach and vegan cheese.

I’ve discovered in my late-20s-ish-ness – which is perhaps due to the same thing that makes me say “BLENDER SALE?!?!!?” and “EARLY BEDTIME!!!!” with the enthusiasm I used to reserve only for Chinese food buffets and Christmas – that I

kale, caramelized onion and quinoa tacos.

 This has been a month of trying to pack our lives full of as much Mexican food as possible, like these vegan tamales. I am embarrassed to say how many times we’ve found excuses to return to Gracias Madre in

balsamic baked tofu with cumin-scented quinoa.

The test of a solid tofu recipe is when non-vegans actually enjoy it. Like, finish it and then Facebook you about it afterwards. This was the case following a dinner with friends a few weeks ago and I was relieved

vegan sweet potato shepherd’s pie.

A couple of weeks back, after a conversation about comfort food, a lovely friend asked me to veganize a traditional Shepherd’s Pie. Oh man, challenge accepted. I love revamping old recipes to make them better for us, including swapping in

cream of potato and leek soup.

I am obsessed with soup. I don’t know how this happened. At some point in the last month, my body decided that soup is the answer to everything: perfectly timed, as it’s starting to get a little chilly. The sweaters

split pea sliders.

I love potlucks. I really do. I think they’re such a fun way to explore new foods and get a sense of what other people cook on a regular basis… or at least, what they cook for parties. There’s this

roasted squash pizza with gluten-free quinoa cauliflower crust.

In the spirit of fall – and in the spirit of pizza – here’s a delicious way to start the week!  We whipped this up a couple of weeks back for a dinner gathering with our lovely neighbor, and as

unfried cauliflower rice in ginger miso sauce.

If eating rice ever makes you feel kind of blergh, but you still totally love the experience of eating it, cauliflower rice might be your new best friend. I discovered this crazy trick several years ago when I cut most

vegan eggplant roll-ups with hemp-basil pesto.

I love pesto. I think we should put some kind of law in place that requires pesto to make an appearance at all meals. Or maybe we don’t need a law. Maybe we just need to make pesto at home

vegan lentil meatloaf.

Comfort food at its finest – and honestly, one of the things I liked least as a kid – meatloaf is a wintery staple. Dip it in ketchup and serve with buttery mashed potatoes, and you have the perfect 1950s

mediterranean cauliflower rice.

One of my favorite things about cooking with veggies is that they are often more than they appear. Kale can become chips, leafy greens can swap in for bread, squash can become the base for pizza crust, and perhaps my

buckwheat bowl with roasted veggies.

It’s 6:00pm. You’re done at work and heading home, dreading the task of making dinner that lies ahead of you. You’re exhausted, you’re a little irritated (traffic/transit/the weather is just irksome today!), and you’re famished.  The last thing that sounds

vegan no-mayo potato salad.

There’s a funny relationship between hunger and deservingness. It comes up all the time in meetings with my nutrition clients: this feeling that “I shouldn’t feel hungry [yet]”, or “I didn’t do enough today to be hungry”, or even “I

roasted veggies with cornichon-caper herb drizzle.

I shared a post a few days ago sharing some thoughts on The New Greenmarket Cookbook, a really valuable resource for seasonal, local recipes and how to shop at the farmers market, no matter where you are. In perusing the

gluten-free scallion pancakes.

Lately, if you’ve noticed, the carbohydrate content of many of the recipes I’ve shared has been higher than usual. I think this has everything to do with being 7000% more famished than usual, on account of all the training for

vegan curry aioli.

Switching to a plant-based diet can sometimes mean parting ways with foods we used to love… but perhaps foods that weren’t doing us a whole lot of good. Mayonnaise is one of those things. It’s not that I have so

crispy sweet potato squash burgers.

So, this one time (last Sunday), I tried to make gnocchi. It did not work.  I think – on account of not using a gluten-y flour, or enough binding – my little potato-almond butter pasta bits weren’t sturdy enough to
