Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Roasted Pepper Open-Faced Sandwiches from Vegetable Literacy

Recipe | Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Roasted Pepper Open-Faced Sandwiches from Vegetable Literacy

I can never, ever pass up the opportunity to make a recipe that involves caramelized onions. Are they a pain to make? Kind of. Do they take for-freaking-ever to cook down? Absolutely.

Recipe | Apple Cheddar Pizza with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts

Working on this recipe was quite an internal struggle for me. I knew I wanted to do an apple cheddar pizza, and I kind of thought I wanted to add walnuts too. But a little voice kept nagging at me. “Add caramelized onions! Caramelized onions!” I tried to resist because, well, I don’t want you…

Yesterday I posted the first part of my collaboration with Rikki Snyder, a Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Flatbread. Today is the second part of the collaboration.

Kale and Sweet Potato Quesadilla

Recipe | Kale & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

There are two things you should know about this recipe: 1. The name is a lie. There’s no queso in these quesadillas. But calling them “dillas” makes them sound like something cutesy off of a children’s menu, doesn’t it? 2. Yes, if it sounds familiar, it’s because I made these with leftovers from my Sweet…

Sweet Potato and Kale Wraps

Recipe | Sweet Potato & Kale Wraps

Originally these were going to be burritos. Having never wrapped burritos before, they turned out a little flat. I was hoping no one would notice, but as soon as I gave my husband his, he was all, “This doesn’t look like a burrito at all! Burritos are round!” So I decided rather than making them…
