Tempeh “crab” cakes

I’m throwing myself a small pity party right now. You can come, especially if you want to help me do dishes. And I hope you don’t mind the fog. That’s supposed to be a beautiful view of the ocean. The sun is trying SO HARD to break through but […]

Chevre and Apricot Phyllo Purses

Since I started this blog just over three years ago, I’ve made a bunch of friends in the blog world, some of whom I’ve met in real life, and many of whom I haven’t. At first it felt a little weird telling people about my “internet friends” scattered all […]

Broccoli Pesto Bruschetta

With the holidays fast approaching, the need for crowd-pleasing, festive-looking, and great-tasting appetizers for holiday parties is growing by the day. If you’ve been searching for a delicious vegan appetizer, this bruschetta is a perfect option! I made this tonight to go with a giant bowl of pasta in […]

Tempeh Salad Rolls

I’ve blogged about rolls a lot like these before, but it was back when ten people read my blog (and most of them were in my family). These are an updated vegan version, without the noodles inside because I think they’re a lot better (not to mention easier to […]

Vegetarian Pot Stickers

I thought pot stickers were one of those things I’d never eat again when I stopped eating meat. Of course it’s possible to make them without meat but the few vegetarian pot stickers I tried before were definitely not worth eating. These, however, have a great mix of vegetables […]

Baba Ghannouj

I make hummus all the time. I just love having it in the fridge as an easy snack, and it’s rare that I don’t have all the ingredients on hand. Baba ghannouj, on the other had, is a little more “special occasion” to me. The ingredients are pretty similar, […]

Roasted potato chips with goat cheese

It’s a tradition in my husband’s family to have an appetizer party a few days before Christmas. I always love finding new recipes to try, and this year, this and my favorite appetizer (salad rolls/fresh spring rolls – whatever you call them, I love them!) were my contributions. The […]

Zaalouk (Eggplant-Tomato Dip)

We were having friends over for dinner, and after planning the menu, I remembered that one of the guests HATES eggplant. I had already bought everything I needed to make this, so I whipped up a batch of hummus to serve along with it, so she would have something […]

Jijimi (Korean Vegetable Pancakes)

When I thought about moving to Korea, I imagined that I would become an expert on cooking Korean food. I knew I’d have a kitchen and full access to all the ingredients I might need to make just about any Korean dish I wanted. I didn’t really think about […]

Deli Tuna Salad

A long run early in the morning is the perfect time to think – I just let my mind wander, and most of the time either a song gets stuck in my head or I start thinking about recipes.  On a particularly beatuiful run along the river the other […]
