These vegan mashed potato holiday bowls are the perfect way to celebrate an intimate, low-key Thanksgiving or winter holiday. All the traditional favorites in one simple recipe! A lot of traditional Thanksgiving side dishes can easily be made vegan. So my focus at this time of year is usually on holiday main dishes. What will feel substantial and celebratory, equally pleasing to plant-based eaters and their omnivore friends and family? I’ve come up with many recipes I love over the years. Millet and…

Now that it’s warmer outside, I’ve been relying a lot on cool grain salads at lunchtime. So long as I prepare and then cool whatever grain I’m using ahead of time, assembling the salad takes only minutes. Grain salads satisfy me more than leafy or vegetable-based salads these days, and it’s fun to use up the various grains that are still hanging out in my pantry, even three months into quarantine (slow pantry emptying is part of living solo!). This quick chickpea carrot…

I’m ending this year and starting the next one with a recipe that feels well suited to where I’m at lately. It’s comforting, familiar, and easy, all of which are top priorities after a somewhat helter-skelter fall and early winter. And it’s the first recipe that I’ve made in a while that just came to…

This is a great time of year for sandwiches and wraps. They’re quick and easy, which means that they free up time for me to take a walk on my lunch break, rather than staying in and fussing over my lunch. They don’t demand an oven, a stovetop, or any other heat source, which is…

I’m so tired. I’ve been tired plenty during the internship, but how I feel right now is special. It is, as they say, next level. And, with a final on Thursday, four assignments to finish, and almost two weeks left in my current rotation, the feeling doesn’t promise to let up soon. I’ve been at…

My first boss used to joke that I’d probably be happy on a diet of mostly baby food. He said this because of my obvious love of mushy-textured foods, which I snacked on constantly at work: refried black bean dip, nut pate, and hummus. Especially hummus. My love of mush hasn’t budged as the years…

I’m debating whether I should keep including “simple” in my recipe titles, since simple food is the name of the game lately, and really since my internship year started. But I guess it never hurts to call it out. Anyway: this bulgur chickpea dish is indeed very simple, as the name implies. There’s some cooking…

My latest dietetic internship rotation is at a community institution that has a teaching kitchen. Like many organizations with a farm-to-table emphasis, the teaching kitchen tries to encourage meatless meals, at least on a part-time basis (à la Meatless Monday). One of their go-to offerings is a vegetarian korma. When I first saw the recipe…

When I went to Prague last summer, I brought reading material that consisted almost entirely of food writing. One of the books was Molly Wizenberg’s A Homemade Life, in which she describes, among other things, the role that food played in her courtship with her former partner, Brandon. There are many sweet anecdotes about intimacy…
