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…

Simple Vegan Burst Cherry Tomato Pasta

Less is more when it comes to summer produce. I think that this is especially true of ripe, sweet tomatoes. Today’s simple vegan burst cherry tomato pasta is proof. A couple years ago, I discovered Marcella Hazan’s famous tomato sauce via Food52. I was skeptical of how only four ingredients could lead to a flavorful sauce. As soon as I tried it, I understood. The sauce isn’t bold like many traditional marinaras, but it’s a classic in its own way. It has an…

This recipe is delicious for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with me. It’s a vegan spin on Pasta alla Vecchia Bettola, a Florentine recipe that’s been brought to many places around the world, including and especially Nick & Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton, where it’s been on the menu for twenty plus years….

  This pasta dish is awesome, but the title isn’t meant to be quite that self-celebratory 😉 It’s a reference to the new SweetEarth Foods Awesome Grounds, which are responsible for most of the plant protein in this very nutrient-dense meal. There’s no easier or more comforting dinner than a vegetable-packed pasta dish, but the…

I’d originally thought of this as being a St. Patrick’s Day dish, thanks to the cabbage, but since that day has come and gone I’m just going to file it as another simple, flavorful, internship-inspired dinner idea. I realized as I was making this caramelized cabbage & onion pasta that I make much more pasta…

Hi friends! Sending you into the weekend with one of those meal starter ideas that I keep mentioning this month. This easy vegan sausage mushroom marinara pasta isn’t a recipe (and I’m not sure that this share even constitutes a proper blog post!), but it’s one of the re-heatable dinners I’ve made most often for…

I’ve done some amount of regular batch cooking for a long time: since I started my dietetics program and even intermittently during my post-bacc, though I was much less organized about food prep back then. I’ve always tried to weave variety into the routine, but I’ve also relied heavily on the same set of dishes…

Creamy Vegan Skillet Lasagna

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,…

At this point, I’ll be writing from midway through my first week as a dietetic intern. In many ways, I spent the whole summer anticipating it; in other ways, the whole transition has snuck up on me. One part of it that I’ve been well prepared for is getting back into a weekend batch meal…

Yep, another pasta dish—but this one’s definitely a departure from pasta salad. A while back, I saw my friend Ali’s recipe, adapted from an Alice Waters pasta dish, for toasted orecchiette with zucchini and corn. It looked wonderful, and I made a note to try it, or something like it. It took me a whole year to…

This is one of those recipes that felt incredibly obvious once I’d made it; given my love of tahini and love of pesto, how is it possible that I hadn’t thought to combine them before? My curried tahini pasta salad proved to me that tahini is a great creamy base for pasta salads—a little more…

  This creamy vegan carrot mac with walnut parmesan is what happens when you’ve got a strong hankering for comfort food, but a fraction of the time it would usually take to whip up a bubbly, baked, mac n’ cheese masterpiece. It’s quick and untraditional, but for me, so many of the key components are…
