Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry

Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry

I had my monthly book club last night. Except I didn’t read the book. In my defense, I started the first few pages and at another mom’s club event, one of the moms cued me in that the book wasn’t worth reading. If only I’d known that before spending $9.99 on the book. Ha! But,…

Cheesy Cauliflower, Lentil and Buckwheat Bake (easily vegan recipe)

Cheesy Cauliflower, Lentil and Buckwheat Bake (easily vegan recipe)

A cheesy, hearty, vegetarian recipe for any time of year that the thermometer dips. Leftovers are great sliced and added to a lunchbox with a wee pot of ketchup. The weather is not playing ball. It is the last gasp of April and not only have I switched the heat back on, I’ve added a scarf, too. …

Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze

Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze

I love this Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze, and this amazing asparagus is low-carb, Keto, gluten-free (with gluten-free soy sauce), vegan, South Beach Diet friendly, and if you sub coconut aminos for the soy sauce it can even be Paleo or Whole 30 approved! Use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one.

Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze found on KalynsKitchen.com.

First, a huge thank you to everyone for the kind comments some of you have left on my post about Kalyn’s Kitchen turning 12 years old! The positive feedback from readers really is one of the things that makes blogging so rewarding.

Now, can we have one more idea for cooking asparagus, since I seem to be unable to pass it up when I see it in the market these days! Waaaaay back in 2007 I made Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce and Toasted Sesame Seed, which ended up inspiring this Roasted Asparagus with Soy-Sesame Glaze. And then for 10 years the recipe hung around in the archives with a photo that was so gruesome I actually deleted it when I took these new ones. 

For the updated version I kept the asparagus spears whole and just used a pastry brush to glaze them with the soy-sesame mixture for the last bit of the cooking time. Then just sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on and you have the most amazing roasted asparagus dish you could ever want! 

And this recipe is pretty much perfect for any type of diet, even Paleo or Whole 30 if you use Coconut Aminos instead of the soy sauce. And asparagus is low in calories too! I’m adding this to my collection of favorite Asparagus Recipes, and I do hope you will try it! And for those people who just can’t get excited about asparagus, you might like Quick Roasted Broccoli with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds which has similar flavors!

BBQ Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

BBQ Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

This post was created in partnership with Shipt. All opinions are our own. The other day we received this comment on our Instagram: “Impressed by your ability to maintain quality, healthy cooking with a newborn. We have a 4-week old and it’s still lots of freezer meals and super simple dishes! Would love a post on how you’re making it work!” @robinfitzergerald Our answer to Robin: Grocery delivery. In this day and age, you can order everything from toilet paper to peanut butter to dog treats online. And our secret to keeping it all together is that we do. We love supporting local businesses; we spend time at the farmer’s markets and local stores. But for weeknight meals and boring errands like toilet paper, it’s online ordering. There is seriously nothing better than getting groceries at my front door (except for the incessant dog barking), and I marvel at it every single time. Those grocery bags at my door are the physical representation of getting hours of my day back. Instead of getting my 2-month old in his carseat, driving to the store, maneuvering a cart wandering the aisles, standing in line, paying the cashier, maneuvering the cart to my […]

Cheesy nacho roasted chickpeas

Cheesy nacho roasted chickpeas

A few times, I’ve shared a revised version of an old recipe, and you guys have really loved it. Crock-Pot mushroom stroganoff, very veggie lentil bake, stew and dumplings – they’ve all appeared on this site more than once, and the second version is always a million times more popular than the original. It seems […]

Now that we have Green Curry Paste, let’s make stuff – like dal!

Dal (also known as daal or dhal) is a classic Indian dish of curried, spiced lentils. You can enjoy it as is, with naan or pita, or over rice (rice being my favorite).

This dish is one I reach for when I’m craving some healthy comfort food. Bonus? It’s crazy easy to make. Let’s curry!

This recipe requires just 1 pot and comes together in about 40 minutes!

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…

I took Piper grocery shopping today. It was Shea’s nap time and since I was going to be gone most of the evening at my hockey game, I wanted to give Mr. Prevention some “free time”. And by “free time” I really mean time to train Harlie (our new bulldog), but…shhhh. Don’t let him know…

Easy Green Curry Paste (10 minutes!)

I have a thing for curry (exhibits A, B, C, D, and E). That is the understatement of the year.

I am totally obsessed with curry! The flavor, the aroma, the versatility – I’m hooked.

Since I figured out a DIY curry powder, I figured it was due time I made my own curry paste. Yes, a real jedi-level move. Be impressed.

Friends, I have to say I don’t know what took me so long to try this recipe, because homemade is sooooo much better than store-bought.
