Kung Pao Veggies Recipe

Kung Pao Veggies

You can go to almost any Chinese restaurant and order Kung Pao Chicken, but I have never seen a vegetarian version on a restaurant menu. This means that if you stop eating meat, you can never eat Kung Pao again. Okay, no, not really. You just have to make your own meatless version. That’s easy…

Vegan Black Bean Enchiladas with Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream

Black Bean Enchiladas With Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream

I have a thing for Mexican-inspired food. Sure, most people like it, but my family and I love it almost too much for words. I am pretty sure we would all be perfectly happy with some version of Mexican food every day of the week–it’s an obsession of epic proportions over here. Tacos, chilaquiles, or…

How do you take something made with meat and make it vegetarian? Well, here’s one lesson I’ve learned over the years: Don’t be afraid to be…

Tortilla Pie with Black Beans and Zucchini Recipe

Recipe | Tortilla Pie with Black Beans & Zucchini

I am fascinated by casseroles. Maybe it’s because I grew up eating them. I’m pretty sure a good half of the recipes in my mom’s dinner rotation were some form of casserole. There was Cheesy Beef Casserole, Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Shipwreck Casserole–and pretty much every casserole involved a can of soup, cheese, or…

Veggie-Loaded Chili Recipe

Recipe | Veggie-Loaded Chili (and it’s freezer-friendly!)

After what I posted last week about not being ready for fall recipes yet, you probably think I’m a big hypocrite for posting this Veggie-Loaded Chili today. But let me explain! This is not a fall recipe, you see. It’s what I like to call a transitional recipe. It uses summer produce (which is still…

Grilled Veggie Banh Mi Sandwiches Recipe

Recipe | Grilled Veggie Banh Mi Sandwiches

This weekend I went to check on my garden and all the squash plants were limp, brown, and crispy. Curse you, vine borers! I was pretty much expecting it to happen though, because a) it happens every year, and b) I had my first actual encounter with vine borers this summer, which I enumerated in…

Freekeh, Zucchini & Pistachio Salad Recipe

Recipe | Freekeh, Zucchini & Pistachio Salad

Have I mentioned before that Chris works from home too? Our offices are across from each other and I bother him constantly. I’m pretty much the work-at-home equivalent of that obnoxious person on the other side of your cubicle who will not shut up. As I was getting ready to write this post, I asked…

You know how sometimes you get to the last few bites of a meal and you feel a little sad because you don’t want it to end? (You do, right? That’s not just me?) We had a lot of those kinds of meals this week. It was glorious. And full of peanut butter. Here’s what…

Crispy Sweet Chili Zucchini with Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce Recipe

Crispy Sweet Chili Zucchini with Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce + a Lundberg Family Farms Giveaway

I have the worst habit of buying myself healthy snacks and letting them sit in the pantry uneaten for months and months. This has happened many times with plain rice cakes. I decide that I’m going to have them for lunch with fruit or veggies on top and then I don’t. Plain rice cakes are…

Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti Recipe

Recipe | Zucchini and Lemon Spaghetti from Food: Vegetarian Home Cooking

Before I started blogging, I didn’t spend much time thinking about vegetarianism. Having stopped eating meat at such a young age, it was simply a way of life. I never felt a longing to eat meat or looked at a restaurant menu and thought, “Oh, I really wish I had more options.” I didn’t talk…

Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas Recipe

Recipe | Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas + Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix

Champagne mangoes are heeeere! I knew they’d be in season again soon, so I’ve been stalking Whole Foods waiting for the glorious day when there’s a huge crate of them front and center in the produce section. Every week, I’ve been disappointed. And last week, I was prepared to be disappointed again when I didn’t…

There’s a whole lot to love about this Cheese & Roasted Vegetable Baked Manicotti recipe. 1. Roasted vegetables! The best kind of vegetables! I like cheese manicotti, but it’s never been a favorite of mine because the filling is a little bit boring. Cheese, cheese, and more cheese. Roasted vegetables make this baked manicotti recipe…

Have you noticed that it looks a little different around here? The talented, fantastic, and super nice (she’s really so nice!) Shay Bocks redesigned Oh My Veggies to give it a brighter, cleaner look.

Before we get to the Spicy Mango Pizza, I have something really important to share with you. Are you ready? I’m writing this post while sitting at a desk. And fine, maybe that doesn’t sound all that important to you, but it is to me. Because for the year and a half that I’ve been…

A Semi-Comprehensive Guide to Roasting Summer Vegetables

Here’s how to use this guide to roasting summer vegetables: I’ve listed the most common summer veggies here (hence the “semi-comprehensive” in the title), along with instructions for preparation and approximate cooking times. You can season these vegetables with salt and pepper alone, or use my suggested additions to fancy things up a little. All…

Recipe | Mini Vegetable Lasagnas (Made in Muffin Tins!)

I like small things. Tiny dogs? Love them. Baby corn? Yes please. Pygmy goats? I’ll take 12. For a while, I even collected those little erasers that are shaped like food for no other reason than the fact that they were small, exact replicas of delicious things. So obviously, when I find a recipe that…

How do you feel about cilantro? Because if you’re a cilantro hater, you may want to avert your eyes. (Or maybe run in terror?)

Twice Baked Salsa Potatoes with Fajita Veggies

Recipe | Twice Baked Salsa Potatoes with Fajita Veggies

Do you ever go to a restaurant and order the same dish every time? For better or worse, I’m a person who likes routine. Usually when I find something I like at a restaurant, I stick with it. My husband always ribs me for ordering the same thing time and time again, but it works…
