Artichoke Potato Salad

Growing up in the US’s Midwest, we had two types of potato salad—German and Classic American-Style. I didn’t like Classic, because many times, it had hard-boiled eggs in it. And even though German seemed more up my alley flavor-wise, there was bacon. Both salads were non-starters, so I avoided potato salad. In the 90’s, I…

Cream of Celery Soup

I’m one of those weirdos that eats the celery on the veggie party tray. I know, who eats the celery? Well, it’s this person. I love the crunch, freshness and slightly salty aftertaste. I like how it compliments dips. And yet, celery doesn’t need to be on a veggie party tray for me to appreciate…

Slow Cooker Jackfruit Porcini Ragù

This is a revision of a previous recipe. While it has a few more steps than the original, it doesn’t take much time at all to put together (less than 20 minutes). These steps were essential to creating the unbelievable flavor. Sautéing the onions and garlic creates a nice base. Allowing the dried herbs to…

Tempeh Turnip Hash

Recently, I was out for brunch with some friends, and had a very subpar vegan hash.  All I could think was, I am positive I could do this better.  And so, I went home and thought about it for a few days.  In the end, this hash is where it is at!   Using turnips…

Vegan Broccoli Cheese Soup

When I was a kid, my favorite vegetable was broccoli.  Every year on my birthday, my mom would let me pick what I wanted to eat for dinner.  With zero hesitation, it was almost always Mollie Katzen’s recipe for The Enchanted Broccoli Forest.  But I have to give it Mollie, how could a veggie kid…

Sun-Dried Tomato Lentil Wheatballs

Lentils, toasted walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon peel, spelt, a little bit of oregano, a little bit of parsley, and some torn spinach.  Delicious, rustic, homemade “wheat”-balls!  Perfect for pasta night topped with your favorite marinara.  Tasty on a hoagie bun topped with sauce and melty cheese.  Or if you’re feeling especially ambitious, make them according to…

Herbed Bean Salad with Garlic Toast

There’s a few things I really love… fresh herbs, beans, and garlic toast!  This recipe combines all of them for a seamlessly delicious meal.  I love the contrast between the warm, crisped garlic toast, and the cool, fresh bean salad.  The celery brings some crunch, and the sherry vinegar brings the acidity.  At once, this…

Gnocchi with Cannellini Beans, Tomatoes, and Spinach

When I am tight on time, this is one of my favorite meals.  It is quick, easy, and hearty.  And it has…drum roll…7 ingredients, including the salt!  Sometimes, simple is best, and leave it to Italian food to perfectly showcase this maxim.   Now, if you want to make it more complicated, that’s entirely up…
