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…

Lauren’s Kitchen: Spicy Chickpea Soup

Mar 2, 2015 | 0 Comments

OK already, Austin weather! Looks like we are in store for a number of cold wet days again. Brrrrr. The good news is I happen to love soup and have an endless array to share with you. The bad news isn’t really bad but the stock pile of luscious salads and salad dressings I’d like to pass on to you continues to grow while we all wait out these Austin-style cold fronts. Here’s a winner my daughter Kate shared with…

Feb 23, 2015 | 0 Comments

My plan today was to be posting a series of my favorite salad dressings that I make in batches but look at this weather! While I hope you are eating plenty of salad it’s still clearly soup season and thankfully Jessica Nadel, author of Greens 24/7, offers up this great way to get your daily greens. Fitting them into you or your family’s daily diet can require some imagination and wonderful recipes help. I gave this one a test drive…

Lauren’s Kitchen: Red Lentil Soup with Spinach

Feb 16, 2015 | 0 Comments

We are in that changeable weather season that calls out for having some fresh comfort food recipes on hand. One minute it’s glorious spring-like and then arrives a day or two of dreary cold (Austin-cold, mind you). Nothing beats the gray wet weather in my house like a steaming bowl of soup. Having a bag full of fresh baby spinach from my Friday Boggy Creek shopping trip and red lentils always in my pantry this was an easy decision. Red lentil…

Lauren’s Kitchen: Shredded Rainbow Salad

Feb 9, 2015 | 0 Comments

If you are done with baby greens and your salad plate needs something more to pique your interest, this is especially for you. Lucky for me, I happened upon this recipe while I was in Germany where cabbage is the national veggie. Jess Nadel’s Shredded Rainbow Salad was a hit with the family and it kept well for a second round at lunch which made everyone happy. If you enjoy this you may also want to check out Jess’ recent book, Greens 24/7. Printer-friendly version
