Roasted Portabella and Chickpea Burritos with Chimichurri Sauce and cauliflower rice

Roasted Portabella and Chickpea Burritos with Chimichurri Sauce

If there exists a burrito that makes me want to hand out high-fives like Halloween candy, it’s this burrito right here. And that’s saying a lot considering I am in no way, shape or form, a high-fiver. Roasted portabella mushrooms? Shazam! Roasted chickpeas? INCREDIBLE! Cauliflower Rice? Bangarang! Chimichurri sauce? Whoooaaa nelly! When it comes to veggie burritos, I…

Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry Recipe

Recipe | Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry

The nice thing about moving from the frigid Midwest to the South is that you can gloat to all your family and friends back home about the weather when fall starts. “Oh, it snowed there today? That’s nice. It’s 70 here.” (Yes, I am a terrible person.) But a week or two ago, when I…

Recipe | Crispy Cauliflower-Carrot Fritters with Smoky Garlic Aioli

For a few years, I worked as a periodicals clerk at a public library. It was a pretty sweet job because I essentially got paid to sit at a desk and read magazines. My actual job was to retrieve magazines for patrons who asked for them because we kept all of our magazines in a…

Roasted Vegetable Kebabs with Curried Chickpeas and Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Recipe | Roasted Vegetable Kebabs with Curried Chickpeas & Yogurt Sauce

Several weeks ago, I attempted to do an elimination diet. I say attempted because I basically lasted two weeks before I was like, “I’m over this, give me a sandwich.” I thought that maybe eliminating gluten would help with the annoying eczema on my hands because it had helped a friend of mine, and while…

Sesame-Glazed Cauliflower Wings

What I Ate This Week | Cauliflower Wings, Part 2: Sesame-Glazed Edition

A few months ago, I posted about one of our cats getting into a bag of nutritional yeast. It is happening again!

What I Ate This Week | Pumpkin Bread and Apple Nachos! Because it’s fall.

Last year I bought a big bag of teff flour because I wanted to make injera. (If you haven’t been lucky enough to try it before, it’s an Ethiopian flat bread and it’s delicious!) The injera was a disaster, and the bag of teff flour sat and sat and sat. I mean, what can you…

Peach and Kale Salad with Maple Miso Vinaigrette

What I Ate This Week | Back to Normal!

Back to normal! I can barely contain my excitement! I’m finished with the recipe part of my cookbook, which means we don’t have to eat cookbook food all the time. The cookbook food was delicious, of course! But sometimes it’s nice to be able to say, “I’m not hungry for a big dinner tonight. Let’s…

I don’t want to jinx myself, but I’m going to risk it: in 5 more weeks, I’ll be done with recipe development for my book! You can’t see it right now, but I’m doing a happy dance at my desk. (It’s probably best that you don’t see it. It involves a lot of erratic arm…

What I Ate This Week | Make These Now: Frozen Pretzel Peanut Butter Pies

Whoa, it’s Friday–how did that happen? And where did the first week of August go? I am resolving to cram as much summer (and corn, obviously) as I can into the next month. I’m going to the beach, I’m buying a Slip-N-Slide, I’m going to go on a picnic, and I’m going to wave down…

What I Ate This Week + A Cookbook Update

People keep asking me about my cookbook and I guess I haven’t really talked about it much after I announced it in April. (April! Has it really been that long?) Right now I’m in the thick of recipe development–I’m trying to develop 10 recipes for the book each week, in addition to the usual development…

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a little bit of a chia kick lately. I put those crazy little seeds on and in just about everything. Did you know that Aztec warriors ate chia seeds before battle? If they can fuel warriors in battle, surely they can fuel me while I stand around…

Cauliflower Hummus Burger with Mint Tzatziki Recipe

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. And because I like a little texture in my burgers, I didn’t want to use actual hummus. So instead, I smashed some chickpeas and cauliflower together with…
