Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls with Cilantro-Mint Chutney Recipe

Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls with Cilantro-Mint Chutney

I think red lentils might just be the least appetizing food you can cook. Well, visually, at least. When you cook split lentils, they fall apart—kind of like split peas in split pea soup. I spent a lot of time trying to think of ways to make curried red lentils look attractive, but sometimes you…

This morning I woke up in a complain-y mood. That happens when you get older. You get crotchety. You’re all, “Why do people post pictures of themselves in the car all the time? Why do people use hashtags in inappropriate ways? Why won’t these kids get off my lawn?” And then you go outside with…

Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli

What I Ate This Week | Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli (Because aioli is kind of my thing now)

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…

On Friday, the weather was beautiful and the sun was shining and I felt excited and hopeful that spring was almost here. I even tweeted this: I know it's mid-February, but it looks like spring outside. Hooray for sun! — Oh My Veggies (@ohmyveggies) February 15, 2013 …and then about 20 minutes later, I got…

Lentil Mushroom Meatballs Recipe

Recipe | Lentil Mushroom Meatballs

Yesterday I was browsing through my pins on Pinterest and I came upon a corn recipe. Corn. It looked so good. So fresh. Yellow. Delicious. I wanted to cry a little. I could almost taste it, but the almost part made it even worse–almost, but not really. We’re on the cusp of winter, which means…

Vegan Cincinnati Chili

Recipe | Vegan Cincinnati Chili

Chili with chocolate in it is one of those things that sounds so wrong, it just has to be right. The first time I heard about Cincinnati chili, I thought it sounded gross. Chili with cocoa powder? And spaghetti?! But then I realized that mole sauce has some of the same flavors as Cincinnati chili…

Middle Eastern Lentil & Rice Soup

Recipe | Middle Eastern Lentil and Rice Soup

Lentil soup is one of my staple foods. As a vegetarian, I like it because it’s a good source of protein. And since I’m trying to lose weight, I like it because it’s filling without being a creamy, rich soup. It’s easy to make and it holds up well in the freezer. Really, what’s not…

Vegetarian Irish Stew with Sweet Potatoes & Tempeh

Recipe: Vegetarian Irish Stew with Sweet Potatoes and Tempeh

I am not a big holiday person. In fact, I’m kind of a party pooper when it comes to holidays. On St. Patrick’s Day, I make an effort not to wear green. Because if I accidentally do wear green? Well, someone might think I’m in the holiday spirit. And we wouldn’t want that, would we?…
