Recipe | Freekeh Bean Burgers with Harissa Onions

If people have a stereotype about what vegetarians eat, veggie burgers, along with salads and tofu, are probably at the top of the list. I don’t think they’re entirely wrong either.

Yes, I realize this is the second post involving aioli this week. It’s like when I discovered peanut sauce and went through a phase when I put it on everything. (Okay, that wasn’t a phase. I still put peanut sauce on everything. Hush.) And maybe you’re all, “Hey Kiersten, aioli is so 2002″ and maybe…

What I Ate This Week | Finally, Quinoa in Convenient Pie Form!

Yesterday I was at the dentist’s office for my Invisalign check-up and the assistant mentioned to me that my next appointment would be right around Thanksgiving, which prompted me to go into full meltdown mode mentally while the dentist looked at my teeth.

Recipe | Cauliflower Hummus Burgers with Mint Tzatziki

I finally made some veggie burgers for the blog. But they’re not burger-y burgers. They’re hummus burgers. I wanted something with the flavors of hummus, in burger form.

What I Ate This Week + Vanilla Blackberry Overnight Oatmeal Recipe

I am still on my overnight oatmeal kick–I’ve eaten it for breakfast every morning this week. In fact, I like it so much that the thought of eating warm oatmeal is now unpalatable to me.
