Sweet and Spicy Roasted Plantains

June 13, 2019

When my cookbook-collecting daughter shared a copy of her latest find, Provisions, I immediately took notice. With 150 Carribean-inspired vegetarian recipes, there was plenty to keep my interest. Plantains are a favorite in the Hubele home, so I was immediately intrigued by the Roasted Ripe Plantain with African Pepper Compote recipe. It’s a simple, straightforward…

Vegan Corn and Kale Chowder

June 9, 2019

Here’s a satisfying way to use sweet and tender fresh corn. Combining it with other seasonal vegetables makes this chowder a meal on its own. The smoky paprika adds a nice depth of flavor, complemented by the tang of fresh lime juice added before serving. Ingredients 5 ears of fresh corn, husks removed and sliced…

Smoky Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers

June 1, 2019

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…

Lauren’s Bitchin’ Brussels Sprout Tacos

Feb 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

Yes, you read that right. Stop the eye rolling right now. Seriously. These are amazing, and if you’re as big a fan of Brussels Sprouts as I am, you will thank me. Truthfully I can’t really call this a recipe. It’s more like a list of ingredients because they go together so easily. Depending on what part of the world you are reading this post, the ingredient Bitchin’ Sauce may sound pretty strange. Don’t despair as I have included a link…

veggie enchiladas

I’m feeling pretty proud. Just three weeks into the new house and kitchen and I am rockin’ my favorite vegan enchiladas to feed the whole family for Sunday lunch. Now that’s 7 hungry family members so we are talking 21+ enchiladas! You are going to love this filling and if you can’t make it to San Marcos, Texas, to buy Chepo’s handmade corn tortillas, I am just sorry because they are remarkable. You’ll just need to find a substitute. In…

Lauren's Warming Vegetable Soup

Well it was back to work for me last week, with the unpacking of boxes and phone calls to settle into our new community pushed to the end of each day. With my cooking time cut down to whatever minutes I could spare, this warming veggie soup was perfect. It goes together in minutes and tastes divine. The secret to this soup is the spice mix. I will admit to stocking up on a special blend each summer in Germany,…

Lauren’s Aubergine and Champignon Curry

Dec 1, 2018 | 0 Comments

So here is how this came to be. I’m a day away from switching houses and still hanging out in my fridge are two shiny aubergine and a bag full of fresh mushrooms. Funny enough they are sharing the shelf space with half a can of coconut milk. I don’t know if you see a curry in the works but I sure did. Add to that combination of ingredients the fact that it’s the coldest day yet in Foix, with…

Lena's Vegan Borsch

So to be completely honest testing Borsch recipes was never quite on my radar, that is until I had a visitor from Kyiv. Who knew?  Now I am an official Borsch fan and no doubt you will be too once you give Lena’s vegan version a try. Ingredients 2 medium sized potatoes 1 medium-sized carrot 1 medium-sized onion 1 medium-sized beet 1 small sweet pepper 60 g cabbage 4 fresh tomatoes (or 3 TBL of tomato paste or 1 cup…
