Lentils are a mighty source of plant-protein and a game changer in vegan cooking. Here are 25 versatile & nutritious lentil recipes that I know you’ll love! Early in the pandemic last spring, I polled readers on Instagram stories about what type of recipes they’d most like to see on the blog. I wanted to know what would be practical and comforting, the two qualities that seemed to matter most to everyone. I wasn’t surprised that there was interest in shelf-stable foods. Beans…

This is a simple, yet super flavorful vegan tofu egg salad. Perfect for sandwiches and tartines, wraps and crackers, and more! It’s one of my favorite every day lunchtime staples. I’m slowly finding that I’ve got the energy to make more homemade food (after a long stretch of feeling stuck with It). The key, I’m finding, is to keep everything very simple. This tofu egg salad is the epitome of simple—no cooking, ready in about fifteen minutes—but it’s really versatile, too. Make one…

Multiple loaves of easy vegan multigrain bread in the last few weeks means lots of incentive to make sandwiches! More sandwiches means more sandwich combinations, and this miso tahini vegetable sandwich is my latest favorite. This sandwich is completely inspired by Peacefood Cafe, a cozy and casual vegan restaurant in my neighborhood. Their miso tahini sandwich features a thick, salty sweet spread, sprouts, carrots, and spelt sourdough. It’s so good, and I order it nearly every single time I grab lunch there. The…

One of the things I keep hearing, on social media and among friends, is that people are craving freshness in food. I think most of us have relied a little more heavily than usual on pantry staples, which is important for safety and staying put. But, with fewer trips to the store and more concern about food waste and spoilage, it’s also natural for us to want to see more color on our plates again. Today’s sunny recipe is full of both freshness…

Technically speaking, this is the first autumn in ten whole years that I haven’t been starting a fresh semester of full or part-time graduate school. Even so, the fall can’t help but evoke back-to-school season and everything that implies: new beginnings, renewed energy, organization. And into the category of organization we can definitely group meal…

Hummus is one of those foods that I could (and usually do) eat every single day without boredom or the craving for something else. Every so often, though, I like to experiment with a different type of dip or spread, and I think this creamy sweet potato roasted red pepper spread is destined to be…

Creamed spinach is one of those dishes that sounded a little old-fashioned to me even when I was a kid. We didn’t eat it at home, but my mom had a soft spot for it—as she did, and still does, for most classic comfort fare—and so I tasted it a few times when she ordered…

Happy Thursday, everyone! Amazingly, this is the very last morning of my current clinical rotation. Putting aside the overall challenges of the DI itself—new schedule, lots of oversight, lack of privacy—my seven weeks at this site have been a wonderful learning experience, with supportive and caring dietitians as teachers. I’m still struggling to wrap my…

It’s only Wednesday, but it sure doesn’t feel that way. It’s been a long week, and for the first time since my DI started, I’m feeling overwhelmed. I miss my routines and the freedoms of my old schedule, and suddenly the year ahead of me feels very long. Through all of the recent transition, I’ve been…

I had such great recipe plans for the week! They involved lots of grain salads and soups and a few tasty entrees. Five days and minimal batch cooking later, I managed to make the skillet chili mac from Power Plates…and that’s about it. But this creamy, simple lentil & pumpkin seed dip happened too, almost…
