Vegan Cassoulet

August 17, 2019

Cassoulet is a French classic and (traditionally) absolutely not vegan. But you can easily capture the essence of this comfort-food dish in my meat-free version. Even better on the second day, cassoulet can be made the night before and gently reheated, perhaps served alongside a hearty kale salad for a delightful weeknight supper.  Ingredients 1…

Nutella Chia Parfait

August 11, 2019

I do realize that I am sharing a silly chia pudding recipe during peak veggie season. I get it. This wasn’t planned, but now that I am home I am missing a little taste of Europe. And what’s more European than Nutella, right? I gave up Nutella years ago when I changed my diet, but…

A Tale of Two Sauces

August 3, 2019

I am a huge sauce fan, much to my husband’s indifference. Like many passionate cooks, I believe sauce elevates an everyday, simple meal to special status. When perfect seasonal produce is plentiful, I am drawn to create simple meals of grilled veggies, changing things up with a variety of sauces. I don’t mind eating zucchini…

Smoky Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

Jun 1, 2019 | 0 Comments

One look at Minimalist Baker’s latest veggie burger recipe, and I knew I had to make it. For me, the challenge was skipping the barbecue sauce (not a winner among the German guys I feed) and still achieve a well-seasoned result. I’d call the experiment a success! (and if you happen to be a barbecue sauce fan, you will find a link to the original recipe below) Fair warning: You’ll need to set aside a full hour to prep this…

The heat is here already in Texas. That means salads brimming with fresh local produce show up on our table every day. While a vinaigrette dressing is always delicious, there are times something rich and creamy is in order. Here are two of my recent go-to recipes. Tahini Ranch Dressing When I saw the words “tahini ranch,” I was intrigued and put the recipe to test that same evening. Here is the version I ended up with after a few…

Chard Packets

May 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

Honestly, I don’t know which came first. I LOVE this recipe. I adore the creator’s photography. I am amused by their name — KrautKopf (cabbage head). And I was pleasantly surprised to find this couple lives in Berlin. So, let’s talk about these adorable bundles of goodness I can’t wait to share with you. I have to admit, one look at the picture and I made a dash to Wheatsville to pick up rainbow chard — how could I resist?…

Salt-Crusted Potatoes with Cilantro Mojo

May 3, 2019 | 0 Comments

I am super fortunate to live with two open-minded eaters. They not only put up with my kitchen experiments, they fully participate with suggestions and ideas (sometimes a few more than I am prepared for!). So, when my husband holds up a gorgeous, salt-crusted potato on his fork and declares it perfect, I take him seriously. Allow me to share this delightfully simple, “perfect” potato dish (by the way, there was not one morsel left at the end of the…

Turmeric Coconut Rice with Greens

Apr 26, 2019 | 0 Comments

Our CSA box arrived filled to the brim with greens again — no surprise this time of year! In search of a new meal, I stumbled on this yummy recipe in the New York Times Cooking archive. Rice can be real comfort food for me, and this recipe also presents a perfect opportunity to incorporate a healthy portion of fresh greens. You”ll notice by the photo that I took the liberty to add a handful of pan roasted mushrooms and…
