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 [...]

Gado Gado (Indonesian Rice Salad)

I know spring has really started when my allergies go crazy, and this week, the fun began. I never had any allergy issues until I moved here, but now they show up right around my birthday every year, giving me really attractive red eyes and an awesome nasal-y voice. [...]

Vegetable Pot Pie

Since yesterday was Pi Day, and I’m trying to keep things healthy around here, I decided a vegetable pot pie would be a festive way to celebrate without loading up on sugar. I bookmarked a healthy Chicken Pot Pie recipe on Eat Clean Live Green, but wasn’t overly excited [...]

Trinidad Corn Soup

I love how so many things in life just seem to work out. I have to admit, when I signed up for Adopt-A-Blogger #4 I was a little skeptical. After all, how do I qualify as a mentor? Yeah, I’ve been doing this for over a year, but I’d [...]

Massaman Curry

While I was cooking, the smell of this curry brought back fond memories of the week and a half we spent in Bang Saphan Yai, Thailand. The family owned the collection of beach bungalows where we stayed made a different dinner each night we were there, and this curry [...]

Barley and Roasted Root Vegetables

If you’re ever hesitant about trying a new vegetable, roast it with tons of butter and it’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll fall madly in love. At least, that was my experience with parsnips. I had never tried one until about two years ago, when Mike brought some home from [...]

My favorite vegetable soup

There’s something extraordinarily comforting about eating creamy soups when the weather gets cool. As a kid, I gravitated towards Campbell’s Cream of Asparagus with so many crushed Saltines in it that it basically solidified. These days I stay away from canned soups, but they’ve been replaced with something MUCH [...]

Tuna Gimbap

Anytime I travel somewhere, I tend to latch onto one particular food and eat it far more than anything else, so that inevitably, when I go home, eating that food immediately transports me back. When I visited Norway, it was mussels and smoked salmon (I made sure to eat [...]

Quick Japchae

Korean cuisine can be difficult for vegetarians. With slabs of meat being grilled up on practically every corner, a vegetarian can feel a little left out. But there is a whole lot more to Korean food than barbecue. There are some fantastic vegetarian rice and noodle dishes, and here’s [...]

Grilled Eggplant Salad

I LOVE the smoky flavor grilled eggplant brings to baba ghannouj and baingan bartha, but those dishes can be a little heavy. When I saw this recipe linked on Thirty A Week I was immediately inspired. I made a few changes based on my preferences and the ingredients that [...]
