Vegan Chickpea Greek Salad

This is a plant-based spin on traditional Greek salad, made with the wholesome addition of chickpeas. It features a tart, salty vegan tofu feta, crisp romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion. It feels so good to welcome in the official start of summer. It’s also the official start of salad season, though technically I’ve been enjoying salads since it started to get warm in New York. A little while ago, I shared a simple Greek vinaigrette dressing. This dressing has been giving life…

This French lentil Niçoise salad is a delightful vegan spin on the classic recipe! Marinated French lentils serve as a protein source in place of eggs or tuna. The salad is bursting with flavor and texture, and it’s perfect for sharing. It’s finally starting to feel like spring in New York City. We’re having cold days here and there, of course: it was 27 degrees Fahrenheit when I woke up on Friday. But for the most part, temperatures are becoming more mild. Flowers…

This vegan lentil beet salad is one of my staple salads. It’s packed with nutrition and perfect with toast! There are plenty of festive recipes to make and think about at this time of year. But sometimes I like to interrupt all of the holiday cookies and cakes with an every day staple recipe. This lentil beet salad is one of my favorites.

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!).

None of us are going to stores as often as we might under normal circumstances, and availability is limited even once the trip is made.
