This creamy mushroom spinach orzo is a fast, one-pot recipe for busy nights! It’s plant-based and features cashew cream in place of dairy. Spinach and mushrooms add texture and nutrition to the recipe. I made this creamy mushroom spinach orzo a couple of weekends ago, and I fell in love with the recipe right away. It was a welcome reprieve from my cooking slump! The recipe is greatly inspired by Sheela Prakash’s one-pot mushroom and spinach orzo for The Kitchn. Prakash is an…

Baking has been a wonderful companion through quarantine. However, it’s now the height of summer. The last thing I’d like to do on a 90-degree day is turn on my oven, which makes my apartment hot even if the AC is running. It’s the perfect time for no-bake treats, and these vegan peanut butter cereal bites are my new favorite! Technically speaking, this is a three-ingredient recipe. That’s not something I’m often able to pull off, but in this case, it works. You…

When I first became vegan, I spent a lot of time cooking dishes that were unfamiliar to me. I sampled new ingredients, including tempeh, quinoa, and a slew of other grains and legumes. Now that I’ve been vegan for more than a little while, I find myself gravitating toward comfort foods and nostalgic dishes. This has been especially true lately, with all of the uncertainty and unrest in the world. Macaroni salad was a childhood favorite of mine, and this creamy avocado macaroni…

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…

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…

It’s looking more and more as though I’ll be indoors for quite a while, along with other New Yorkers and many around the country. As anxious as this time is, I’m trying to accept the circumstances and to find what positives I can. I can’t claim to have made much use of the extra time at home this week: so far, zero regular cleaning or spring cleaning. Minimal progress on my domestic to-do list. Keeping up with, but not getting ahead of work….

I’ve been on a mission to make vegan croissants for an upcoming article, so it’s been a week of all pastry, all the time. Multiple days at a time of laminating yeasted dough hasn’t left me with much time or desire to cook. So I’ve been relying on the quick, simple meals, with as many shortcuts as possible. These BBQ soy curl and cabbage apple slaw sandwiches have suited me perfectly while I master the art of puff pastry. They feature what’s probably…

Tomatoes were my favorite food as a child, and my attachment to them has never really gone away. I look forward to them being in season all year long, and I celebrate their appearance more than any other summer produce. Unlike many vegetables, for which I’ll have a strong preparation preference (broccoli steamed; cauliflower roasted;…
