What I Ate This Week - 2013 Favorites
The year is almost over, which means it’s a good time to pause and reflect upon the past year. Didn’t I eat some awesome food? Didn’t I find some amazing recipes? Yes, I did. And I did. So like last year, I’ve gone through my What I Ate This Week posts to find my 10 favorite recipes from 2013. Here they are, in no particular order:

Spicy Peanut Butter Tofu with SrirachaSpicy Vegan Peanut Butter Tofu with Sriracha from Kalyn’s Kitchen // Peanut sauce and sriracha–of course this is one of my favorites! Serve this with rice and steamed veggies to make it a meal.

Kalamata Olive & Herb Socca with Roasted VegetablesKalamata Olive & Herb Socca with Roasted Vegetables from Tasty Yummies // This was my first time having socca and now I’m a little bit obsessed. The kalamata olives are the best part!

Vegetable Lo MeinVegetable Lo Mein from The Garden Grazer // I’ve learned from starting this blog that a lot of people think that vegetarian cooking is complicated, time-consuming, and difficult. This is the kind of recipe that proves them wrong. It’s simple and delicious!

Greek Dukkah Encrusted Zucchini FriesGreek Dukkah-Encrusted Zucchini Fries from Greek Vegetarian // I really love Lisa’s blog and I’ve made a few recipes from it, but this one is my favorite. The dukkah forms a crispy, flavorful crust on the fries–so good!

Garlicky Grilled Kale Salad with Grilled BreadGarlicky Grilled Kale Salad with Grilled Bread from The Kitchn // It’s rare that I get excited about a salad, but I LOVE THIS SALAD! I could eat it everyday. Even without the bread, it’s delicious. Grilling the kale is definitely worth it.

Smoky Butternut Squash Sauce with Pasta & GreensSmoky Butternut Squash Sauce with Pasta and Greens from Oh She Glows // This isn’t the best photo, but it is the best recipe. We added Field Roast and it was just like eating a big bowl of mac & cheese. But better!

Stuffed Zucchini with Creamy Peanut Lime SauceStuffed Zucchini with Creamy Peanut Lime Sauce from Dishing Up the Dirt // Stuffed zucchini is always a favorite around here and this version includes peanut sauce. Peanut sauce! The filling is made with veggies and quinoa, so these are pretty darn healthy too.

Curried CabbageCurried Cabbage from New South Food Company // Chris really hates cabbage, but he loved this and so did I. The leftovers are perfect for tossing with quinoa or rice to have for lunch the next day.

Sun-Dried Tomato & Arugula TartinesSun-Dried Tomato and Arugula Tartines from Vegetarian Times // Fancy! With a garlicky homemade sun-dried tomato spread and kalamata olives, these open-faced sandwiches are full of savory deliciousness.

Quinoa Kale Mac & CheeseQuinoa Spinach Mac and Cheese from Tasty Kitchen // I used less butter in here and replaced the spinach with kale, but oh man, this was really good. This is the recipe that will win over all you quinoa haters out there.

Thanks for sharing your list and top posts! I did mine today too and I always love seeing what was popular on everyone else’s blog. I hope you have an amazing 2014 and I am always SO impressed by your recipes, creativity, photography, and just everything you do, Kiersten!

One of my favorite recipes you posted was Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas. I have made these so many times. In fact, we are having them for dinner tonight. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh WOW all look so delicious! The pasta and surprisingly the cabbage are the most appealing to me! I like when certain foods surprise you, and cabbage looks like it would do just that. 🙂 Thanks for sharing all of these and Happy New Year!

Hi Kiersten,
I’m honored that one of my recipes made it on your list of favorites! I love that peanut butter tofu myself, so many of my favorite flavors!

Oh I love how that butternut squash mac & cheese (with field roast…mmmmm) looks. And the quinoa mac & cheese too! (wait, there are quinoa haters out there?)

AHH Thank you SO much for this site! I am 22 year old medical student with very little time to cook and I have really been struggling to think of new vegetarian recipes lately. These are all so easy and delicious! You got me out of my rut- Thank you!
