IMG_3258

Bowls are a great way to enjoy vegan cooking. They can include anything.  If you have some vegetables leftover from the prior weekend’s Farmer’s Market finds, a bowl is a fantastic way to use your remaining vegetables.  They’re also easy to travel with whether that includes a meal for lunch at work, a day at […]

Lentil and Feta Spinach Salad

  There are a few go to dishes I have when making a quick lunch or needing something for a picnic or potluck.  This dish is one of those go to options. It only take about 30 minutes to prepare and most important it tastes great.  The dijon vinaigrette adds a lot of flavor that […]

Chicken Curry SousVide

IMG_5487

  I’ve made quite a few recipes using my Sous Vide Supreme. The thing I really like most about it how I can cook meat to a perfect doneness by leaving it in the water bath all day while I go out enjoy whatever else needs to get done. Today I prepared a couple bone-in […]

Pear Zucchini Stir Fry

Before last Sunday I had no clue what a Pear Zucchini was so don’t worry if you do not either.  You can substitue any vegetable here.  A ‘normal’ green zucchini or yellow squash is fine or skip both and add cauliflower and/or broccoli.  Basically this is anything you want it to be. However, if you […]

Tonight they were doing recipes […]

Thank you FoodieChats. If you are not familiar with #FoodieChats on Twitter, I highly recommend you join the weekly chat held every Monday night at 8pm EST.  The group’s Facebook page posted a Shepherd’s Pie recipe from Gordon Ramsay that looked quick and flavorful so I decided to give it a try.  Here is the […]

Lentils with Turnip, Leek, and Carrots

IMG_8844

This dish is adapted from a recipe found on Barefoot Contessa’s website. Last week a friend shared how she made the original version along with some grilled salmon.  I love lentils and had been looking for something new to do with them. Plus I really like the use of a turnip, which is a neglected […]

Sausage, Chickpea Smoked Paprika Soup

IMG_8828

I confess. I’ve been on a bit of a meat kick lately.  Take for instance last night when I had a perfectly good sounding vegan soup I planned to make.  Looking at the recipe on the Farmersgirl Kitchen blog, the recipe screamed for some italian crumbled sausage. If you wish to make this recipe as […]

Vegetable Potpie

I now have to favorite must go places while in New York City. The first is Mario Batali’s Babbos. The second must stop is Candle Cafe, a vegan restaurant that is well-known in vegan and vegetarian circles. My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas and one of the top cookbooks was The Candle […]
