Veggie Supreme Pizza

Pizza is my favorite food and I could eat it for every meal. There is no doubt in my mind that I could eat it every day three times a day for the rest of my life. Especially with the existence of such good dairy-free cheeses these days, and their availability in most super markets,…

Crabless Cakes with Chili Mayo

This crab cake recipe is one of my favorite vegan recipes to make because it really tastes like the real thing and is so easy to make. I’ve been working on this one for a while and have finally perfected it. I’ve even tried freezing the crab cake patties and reheating them, which is also…

Zucchini Fries

Zucchini = summer to me. My parents’ garden would yield so many zucchinis every year, and sometimes they would be the size of my thigh. We had zucchini in and with everything for most summers of my life. I love the delicious watery fleshy flavor of a freshly picked one. Squash is so versatile, as…

Kale Lentil Bowl

Bowls are so trendy these days, aren’t they? They’re on most healthy or vegetarian restaurant menus, they’re all over Instagram, they’re in every vegan cookbook I own. But what is a bowl other than a normal meal packaged in a pretty way? You got your quinoa or grain base, you got your bean or lentil…

Broccoli Salad

I’m adding this recipe to my list of favorite summer salads because this broccoli salad is amazing. You refrigerate it for at least an hour to make sure the dressing works its magic and infuses the sweet, sour, and salty flavors into the raw broccoli florets. And because it is served cold, it is so…

Teriyaki Veggie Tacos

I’m pretty proud of myself for this one. A change in our schedules meant that we would both be home for dinner unexpectedly, and with a fridge full of produce and a packed vacation schedule coming up, it meant we needed to take this opportunity to clear out that refrigerator! I decided to use up…

Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti Squash is an amazing vegetable. It’s nature’s way of telling us to play with our food and to eat less processed grains. The first time I made it, I couldn’t believe how fun it was! It feels like magic – I didn’t believe it was true until I saw it for myself. In addition…

Tomato Cucumber Salad with Sauteed Kale

I am loving meals full of veggies in this brutal heat. Who feels like turning on the oven when it is 95 degrees in New York City? Especially when you don’t have air conditioning and your kitchen is like a sauna? This heat wave has got me craving watery vegetables and cold salads. For dinner…

Ooey Gooey Brownies

I think brownies might be my favorite dessert. I have always preferred chocolate-y over fruity flavors, and a brownie is the perfect somewhere between cookie and cake – moist and gooey, yet substantial and more celebratory than a regular-ol’ cookie. Whether it is a work party, book club, or a weekend visit with family (my…

Balsamic Asparagus and Polenta

Polenta is one of those things that I always really like when I order it at restaurants, but can never get it quite right when I try it at home. Except this time. I am so happy with how this turned out, especially topped with asparagus and a balsamic reduction. The key to a yummy,…
