Last week, I was playing around with a tofu mayonnaise recipe and it naturally led me to making this pasta salad. As I was trying to work through my cravings and what makes a good simple pasta salad recipe, I was reminded fresh herbs make all the difference. In this case, fresh parsley is the […]
Chili Lentils Over Baked Potatoes – AWESOME. Have you ever tried chili or barbecued pinto beans over a baked spud? It’s like being at a cook out without having to get out the grill. If you have the time, bake the potatoes in the oven to get the skins crispy and that authentic baked potato […]
Smoky BBQ Soft Tacos was inspired from a recipe out of The Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall. I tried making exactly as directed in the book but I didn’t have all the same ingredients and had to wing it. You know how that goes, right? The original recipe called for 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, I […]
Chickpeas are my number one favorite legume. They’re so versatile. They can be a snack, dip, salad, sandwich filler, side, or main dish. Boiled, baked, fried, mashed, whole, hot, warm, or cold, they rock anyway they’re prepared. I’m gearing up for a road trip, so I’m planning to make a big batch of chickpea salad for […]

None of that. Lentils takes a quick 20 […]

I discovered the lovely Red Garnet sweet potato. Have you heard of it or tried it? It has a darker skin and flesh with much more flavor than the regular sweet potato I’ve grown up knowing. I found the Red Garnet at Whole Foods Market (my favorite hangout). I’m telling you there’s a REAL difference […]
