Quick and Easy Meatless Chili with MorningStar Farms Crumbles

It’s March in New Hampshire, which means I am both dying for spring, but also completely aware that it’s going to snow at least two more times before I see my first crocus, daffodil, or tulip. Thank heavens for chili — namely, my favorite meatless vegetarian chili with Morningstar Farms Crumbles. Chunky and just spicy […]

Easy Homemade Minestrone Soup

Summer just came and went, didn’t it? One minute I was breathing in the ocean air at Rye with my family and escaping the heat at a beer garden with my girlfriends in Brooklyn, and the next, I’m using the entire length of my arm to wipe the fallen leaves off my car in the […]

Baked Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Yes, it’s zucchini season, and these things are everywhere, calling to us from the garden or with their rock-bottom prices from the farm stand and local markets. Are you currently being buried alive with summer’s most prolific green veggie? Here’s how I’ve been eating them. Slightly hollowed out and stuffed with savory goodness, then baked […]

The Best Homemade Veggie Bean Burgers

Like many vegetarians, I spent the first 5 years of my new lifestyle buying boxes of meatless burgers from the grocery store, clumsily figuring out how to cook them without them falling apart or tasting like a tasteless old sofa cushion. Then I started buying them in the “prepared food” and deli section of Whole […]

Vegetarian Chicken and Dumplings

No matter where I turn this time of year, I encounter recipes for Chicken and Dumplings that taunt me with their thick, chicken-y goodness.  They’re a classic comfort food – right there next to the macaroni and cheese and beef stew – and now I can finally enjoy my own version with all of the hearty […]

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Unless you’re talking about pizza or an enormous bowl of pasta (and aren’t all bowls of pasta enormous?), I don’t think one item covers it as a complete meal. It’s like in sugar cereal commercials where at the end of the spot you see a brief flash of the cereal bowl alongside a pitcher of milk, […]

Zucchini “Mock Crab” Cakes

We all know my vegetarian heart weeps for the seafood I do not eat.  There are a lot of good meat substitutes out there (fake hamburger, bacon, sausage, chicken strips, and hot dogs to name a few) but there just isn’t a seafood stand-in.  The best cure for the seafood-sick heart seems to lie in substitutions rather […]

Mock-Tuna Chickpea Salad Sandwich

As a longtime vegetarian, people sometimes ask me what I miss the most about my meat-eating days.  It’s an easy answer.  I miss turkey sandwiches…and seafood.  All seafood.  Shrimp, lobster, clam strips, scallops, swordfish, steamers, haddock, salmon…and yes,  tuna fish.  A few years ago I heard about a “mock” tuna salad recipe using mashed chickpeas.  […]

Edamame Bean Salad

During my time in Edinburgh I learned about many new-to-me foods.  The cafe I worked at got in a fair amount of them, like Irn-Bru, florentines, flapjacks, the ploughman’s sandwich, and three bean salad. It was also where I saw my first carrot and raisin salad, but you will never see me revisiting that particular dish.  I truly […]

Aloo Gobhi

I am a big fan of British chef Jamie Oliver, who carved out a niche for himself as the man calling for a “Food Revolution” in the UK and US.  Jamie’s goal is to change the way we think about what we eat, as we continue to rely more and more on processed foods or takeout […]
