Red Lentil Soup with Caramelized Onions

I have been all about red lentils lately. They make the best soup, they’re such a pretty orangey-red color (which unfortunately changes to yellow when they’re cooked), and they are hopefully pretty healthy (I’ll have to check on that). I normally cook them with Indian spices (mustard seeds, a […]

Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes with Vegan Gravy

I love caramelized onions and I really love mashed potatoes, but the thought of combining the two never crossed my mind until I saw this recipe. There I was, sitting on the couch right after work, agonizing over what to take with Thanksgiving with our friends this weekend, eating […]
