Vegan Superfood Bowl for #SundaySupper

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 Salad

  If you are looking for a simple vegan salad to take to the beach or enjoy for lunch, this simple salad is sure to please.  It takes only about 20 minutes to make, most of the time is waiting for the lentils to cook.  It’s easy and full of flavor with the maple syrup […]

Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup

  Lentil soups are very hit or miss in my experience.  They are often too watery, lack flavor, or get too complex where the soup has too much going on to enjoy it.  Fortunately, this evening was a hit or as my wife said “this one’s a keeper.” I love coconut milk based curry and […]

Abundance Bowl

  We often take a long drive out to Ojai on Sundays to get out of the city and to experience one of our favorite Farmers’ Markets. There is a great selection of organic fruits and vegetables plus some great cheese vendors, but it’s more about the experience.  An experience of driving through the hills […]

Vegetable Pearl Couscous

  This is a dish that can be used to clear out your vegetable drawer.  Any vegetable will do fine in this and it is a great way to use some of the vegetables you just didn’t get to or that you found at the Farmers’ Market but didn’t have  a specific plan for.  Here […]

Kale Pasta Bake

I love macaroni and cheese.  There are a lot of variations on it and I’m always interested in trying something a little different.  Here is one without cheese. So technically it’s really not a macaroni and cheese. It’s more of a macaroni noodle and vegan bechamel, but that doesn’t sound as good. I’ve made bechamel […]

Vegan Moroccan Swiss Chard and White Bean Soup

  After a couple weekends of back-to-back smoked meats, I was due for a Saturday and Sunday of vegetarian meals. Last night was some great Asparagus Risotto. Following up last night’s meal, I had some beautiful swiss chard from the La Canada Farmers’ Market that needed to get used.  This dish was a perfect way […]

Finally a Cooking Show Worth Watching Since Molto Mario?

  UPDATE: I watched the show this week. It’s a train wreck. Bad directing. Bad jokes. Obnoxious expressions. Tons of stupid gimmicks. This show will not last. It is painful to watch unless someone decides to rework it and make it more about the food instead of trying to be funny and cool.  Oh well, […]

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 […]
