The recipe is designed to create 4 single servings, which means you can bake them, store them, and enjoy them whenever you need a healthful…

Green Goddess Spring Socca

Green Goddess Spring Socca

Socca is a lovely meal for anytime of year, but for whatever reason I’m always most compelled to make it in the springtime. It’s something about the weather getting warmer: I’m ready to break out of grain bowls and soups for lunch, more eager for flatbreads and toasts and salads. This simple green goddess spring…

Weekend Reading, 4.22.17

Happy Earth Day, everyone! In honor of the day—in honor of our planet and the sentient creatures that inhabit it—I’m sharing a few articles about animal rights and sustainability in today’s Saturday roundup. It’s been a long week here. I’m not sure what I expected to happen once I came clean about the breakup, but I guess I…

Slow Cooker Tomato White Beans

Slow Cooker Tomato White Beans

I know that I may have exhausted your interest in toast and toast toppings with Tuesday’s post, but I’m hoping you’ll have the bandwidth for one more—especially since the recipe is good for more than bread alone. These herby, slow cooker tomato white beans can be served with noodles, over your favorite whole grain, with crackers,…

Alexandra Stafford’s Peasant Bread & Six Tasty Vegan Toast Ideas

Alexandra Stafford’s Peasant Bread & Six Tasty Vegan Toast Ideas

I’ve mentioned recently that I’m dipping my toes (gradually) into the world of homemade bread making. Like a lot of home cooks, I’ve harbored a fear of any recipe involving yeast for as long as I can remember, which doesn’t really make sense: yeast is just another ingredient, and it’s probably less temperamental than some others. But…

Weekend Reading, 4.16.17

In the week since I wrote about heartache here on the blog, a lot of kind people have taken the time to share their own stories with me or simply offer up goodwill. One longtime reader directed me to this address about learning the healer’s art. It’s written from a religious perspective, but I think it touches on truths about…

Simple Vegan Spring Lemon Orzo Pasta Salad

Simple Vegan Spring Lemon Orzo Pasta Salad

I don’t tend to observe Easter with quite the same concentration of festive spirit that I bring to the winter holidays, but I do welcome its approach each year, if only as an opportunity to cook some celebratory springtime food. This simple vegan spring lemon orzo pasta salad has it all: bright, lemony flavor, a bounty…

Spicy Black Bean Kale Soup

Spicy Black Bean Kale Soup

Thank you all for the very kind comments on Sunday’s post—as well as some of the emails and messages I’ve gotten since then. I’m a little at a loss for how to express my thankfulness or articulate how touched I am. Hopefully my appreciation is shining through the words I’ve got. In that post, I…

Weekend Reading, 4.9.17

This past Friday, Angelica Kitchen, one of New York’s oldest and most beloved vegan restaurants, closed its doors. The eatery had served seasonal, farm fresh, and affordable plant-based food for over 40 years. It was one of my favorite places in the city, a cozy refuge where traditionally prepared legumes, grains, and vegetables were always on offer….

Green Goddess Club Sandwich

Green Goddess Club Sandwich

It’s occurred to me recently that there’s a serious shortage of vegan sandwich recipes on this blog. I’ve gotten into such a routine with my vegan lunch bowls that sandwiches sometimes get short shrift. But really, there’s nothing like a sandwich for an easy, packable lunch, and it’s about time I shared some of my go-tos….
