This vegan eggplant baked rigatoni is the most perfect pasta dish for early fall. It’s a cross between Pasta alla Norma and baked ziti, and it’s a delicious way to use up your eggplant while satisfying your comfort food cravings. I’m sort of embarrassed to admit how tired I feel of cooking right now. In the early weeks of quarantine last spring, I was hooping that the stay-at-home time would inspire me to get especially creative in the kitchen. That hasn’t happened at…

Corn season has officially arrived! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this hearty vegan potato corn chowder. This chowder has it all. Its got sweetness from corn, stick-to-your-ribs satisfaction from russet potatoes, and smoky flavor, as well as plant protein, from vegan meat. It’s also a simple, one-pot recipe that’s substantial enough to serve as a meal. Soup vs chowder When I was throwing this soup together, I kept thinking of it as a chowder and calling it…

It’s definitely no secret that I’m a huge fan of Butler Soy Curls to begin with, but they seem to be especially ideal for these weeks of quarantine. They’re shelf stable, protein-rich, and inexpensive, as far as vegan meats go. The pack of 6 bags that you can order online from the Butler website is a generous amount: enough to ensure many hearty vegan meals! I’ve got three bags still in my pantry, and on Sunday evening, I thought it was a good…

I’m sure I’m not the only person who remembers grilled cheese and tomato soup as a childhood comfort food. In my home, the tomato soup was Campbell’s, but the grilled cheese was my mom’s, and she nailed it. My mom’s grilled cheese sandwiches were, whether she knew it or not, a specialty. A few of my friends still remember the pleasure of coming over and eating them. My mom usually made adult grilled cheese: not only cheddar, but also tomato and a thin…

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 past Saturday was admittedly a crazy day to have my oven on; it was scorching and humid in NYC, and it would have been a perfect night for leftovers or a dinner salad. But that isn’t what happened. Instead, I had my oven on to create the cheesy, melty, altogether delicious vegan cauliflower pizza…

Since September, I’ve been telling myself that this is a year for soups, stews, easy grain dishes, sheet pan meals, and other low maintenance cooking endeavors. It’s true in many ways: soup, for example, has been a mainstay during my internship because it’s easy to make and yields a ton of food for freezing/reheating. With…

This is another one of those recipes that had me feeling tripped up over terminology. Lasagna, even a skillet lasagna, is typically made with layers of melty cheese. This one forgoes those layers for the addition of cashew cream, which makes the whole thing creamy/cheesy/etc., but makes it a departure from anything resembling traditional lasagna,…

For all of my interest in new, plant-based products, I’m often a slow adopter. I’ve got so many standby staple foods that it can take me a while to welcome something new into the rotation, and jackfruit is a perfect example. It’s one of the most popular ingredients in plant-based cooking these days, and until…
