Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

Grilled Cauliflower Steaks

Serves 2 It’s no secret that I love grilling in the nice weather.  Since I don’t eat meat (only the occasional seafood) I am always looking for other fun alternatives to grill.  One night hubby and I were brainstorming and came up with this beauty.  It’s like enjoying all the flavors of the quintessential grill

Raw Green Bean and Pesto Salad

Raw Green Bean and Pesto Salad

Serves 3-4 Raw eating is made for summer time.  Not only is there awesome produce you can get in abundance, but it also means you can turn off the oven and put away the pots and pans.  That’s so perfect in the summer heat.  It also means throwing together a meal is no more complicated

Rice and Beans

Rice and Beans

Serves 4   This is really a pantry-raid special.  I know it happens to all of us that there are days we get home and there is legitimately nothing in the fridge to make.  This is a recipe created out of stuff I keep on hand, with a few fresh ingredients to yummy it up

Corn and Asparagus Salad

Corn and Asparagus Salad

Serves 2 (generously) I am obsessed with my local farms. I pass 2 on my drive home from work, and I love picking up whatever they have and using that as my inspiration for dinner. It’s why I love living all the way out here in the sticks. I usually exercise self-restraint and wait for

Italian Quinoa Salad

Italian Quinoa Salad

Serves 6 (as a main dish) 15 (as a side) Every time the seasons change I get a “this is my favorite season” feeling.  So you’ll likely see me saying it a lot.  What I love so much about this time of the year is the casual get-togethers centered around food, specifically grilling.   This is

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Serves 4-6 While tomato season is still pretty far off (here in the Garden State its usually July) my lovely local farms have delicious green house tomatoes in the market now!  So I was thrilled to throw together this quick, easy, and delicious recipe.  I make the sauce in the food processor, but if you

Fajita Filling over Lime Quinoa

Fajita Filling over Lime Quinoa

Serves 4 This makes both a lovely quick dinner, or a wonderful lunch.  I love the flavors of fajitas, but have yet to find tortillas that are healthful and not full of junky ingredients.  This is a wonderful fix, quinoa is both healthy and filling, and adds some extra protein.  It also cooks up pretty

Balsamic Glazed Tofu with Garlic Wilted Spinach

Balsamic Glazed Tofu with Garlic Wilted Spinach

Serves 2-3 So Thursday evening, after a very long couple of days I might add, I was driving home and there it was.  Just what I’ve been waiting for: fresh, homegrown, organic produce at the local farm.  The first of the year!  Spinach, cilantro, and scallions oh my!! Brightened my day right up!! Sometimes I

Fried Rice

Fried Rice

Serves 4 If you have the forethought, I advise cooking the rice a day or 2 before you use “fry” it.  This works for you in a twofold, first its less time to whip up this dinner (really just the time it takes to measure and chop because it cooks in a flash).  And second

Vegan Cabbage Rolls

Vegan Cabbage Rolls

Serves 4  In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day this weekend (and because cabbage is 7 cents a lb at the food store right now!!) I thought I would whip up some St. Patrick’s Day themed fare this week.    If you are not familiar with working with cabbage leaves as wraps, I have a

Cold Asian Bean Salad

Cold Asian Bean Salad

Serves 2 I use tahini (sesame seed butter) in here to round out the sauce; it adds sort of a creamy quality.  If you don’t have it don’t sweat, you can sub in some peanut butter. It won’t be exactly the same, but delicious nonetheless!   This couldn’t be easier, so it’s awesome for a

Vegan Tacos

Vegan Tacos

Serves 3-4 A note on nutritional yeast: if you are not familiar with this ingredient, it is used by many vegans as a cheese substitute, and if you have ever had vegan kale chips with a “cheese flavor” or anything vegan with a “nacho cheese” flavor, likely the flavor is coming from nutritional yeast.  It
