Curry Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

This is the first real summer I’ve experienced in two years, and the heat is taking some getting used to.  I ADORE 90+ degree temperatures, but it’s definitely been an adjustment in terms of cooking and working out. I really would rather not turn the house into a sauna […]

Potato and Tempeh Curry with Cucumber-Ginger Raita

curry

First things first, my husband is an amazingly easy person to cook for.  Pretty much anything I set down in front of him, he’ll eat.  When he asks what’s for dinner and I tell him it’s lentils or chard or vegan or full of nutritional yeast, he generally replies […]

Curried Lentils with Potatoes

There are certain necessities in life. You need to go to coffee on the weekend. Preferably with a cute baby strapped to you. You need to bring that cute baby to meet someone awesome. Like Joy the Baker! The line may stretch down the block, but it’s worth the […]

Khao Soi

I really, really love Thai food. If I absolutely had to pick a single favorite dish, this might be it. It’s kind of hard to find outside Northern Thailand (except I’ve heard there’s a place in Oakland that has it – I MUST investigate!) I wrote about it when […]

Coconut Curry-Marinated Chicken

Yes, chicken. For the first time on this blog in over a year. I didn’t eat it, but I wanted to surprise Mike on Valentines Day and chicken was definitely a surprise. (Vegetarians…don’t abandon me yet, this marinade would be FANTASTIC with tofu!) Only good things in the marinade: […]

Cashew Curry

I am kind of in awe of how my blog’s following has grown over the past few months. For so long it seemed like nobody outside my immediate family and circle of friends read it, and even then it was only because I nagged them. But to all of […]

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 […]

Curried Butternut Soup

I happened to stumble across this recipe at the perfect time. I had a partially-used can of coconut milk in the fridge, and a forlorn butternut squash that had been sitting on the counter for over a week waiting for inspiration to strike. That, on top of the cold […]

Curried millet with browned onions

When we lived in California, my husband and I were OBSESSED with Indian food. Seriously, I have to type it in all caps because it was not just some fleeting fondness. Our pantry was stocked with all the essentials: multiple kinds of dal, asafoetida, amchur, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds, […]

Coconut Curry Noodle Soup

This is my kind of comfort food! It combines some traditional Thai flavors with somen noodles and tofu for protein.  I cook the tofu in a frying pan to crisp it up a little, and it contrasts really nicely with the soft wheat noodles.  Udon noodles, which are a […]
