Bibimbap with Vegan Runny Egg

I recently came across It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken’s Vegan Runny Egg Recipe and knew I had to try it on one of my favorite dishes, bibimbap. It’s a Korean dish full of yummy vegetables over warm white rice with soy sauce and a runny egg that seeps down and flavors the entire bowl. Since being…

Jerk Cauliflower

The term “store bought” should become your best friend if it isn’t already. It’s certainly mine. I take shortcuts whenever I can, like with this delicious jerk marinade I bought on a whim on my last grocery shop. I could’ve made my own jerk marinade from scratch, but sometimes, a girl’s gotta accept some help….

Chili Lime Corn

Holding onto the final days of summer the best way I know how! Grilled corn (grilled on the stove top of course). This easy recipe for corn on the cob is a bit spicy from a jalapeno pepper, a bit tangy from the fresh squeezed lime juice, and a bit sweet from the corn… so…

Kale Quinoa Salad

Healthy, easy, and plant-based: what more could you want in a meal? Oh, lots of protein, super foods, and a touch of sweet you say? Not a problem! We got all of that too! Please please make this salad because you will never look at kale and quinoa (the fad super foods of our generation…

Taco Bites

I like to make use of every ingredient in my fridge, so sometimes that means I have to get creative. I bought wonton wrappers for my wonton ravioli recipe, and had leftover wrappers. Next thing you know, I’ve made some wonton bites! Just bake them in a muffin tin for 10 minutes and wonton wrappers…

Grilled Balsamic Squash

Let’s be clear: I do not have a grill. I live in a one bedroom apartment in Queens and am without any outdoor space that could host a grill. I am in the market for a cast iron grill pan as my next kitchen tool slurge — I recently needed to replace my chopping knife…

Chili Lemon Broccoli with White Beans

I’m very into simple flavors right now, especially when it comes to enhancing every day roasted vegetables with new flavor combinations (see my maple balsamic sprouts here). This broccoli would have been perfectly delicious just roasted in the oven with the classic olive oil and salt, but this time we decided to kick it up…

Tuscan Tofu Scramble

One of the joys of food is that it can transport you to another time and place. I love making things that have the flavors of a foreign, beautiful place and make me dream of villas in Southern Italy. Now I’m not sure if people in Tuscany eat tofu scramble, but if they did, I…

White Lasagna with Squash

Trying a new spin on an old classic is always a fun adventure. Taking something like say, lasagna, and making it fresh and new with say, white sauce and pureed veggies, is a particularly delicious adventure! I highly suggest taking the journey. Instead of a traditional marinara sauce, this lasagna uses a cashew-based alfredo sauce…

Mushroom Wonton Ravioli

I love shortcuts. I’m a big fan of anything that makes my life easier and less complicated. While I can recognize that sometimes it might be therapeutic or an enjoyable challenge to take the long road by, say, making your own fresh vegan pasta dough, I also very much prefer finding little tricks that save…
