Late Summer Tomato & Eggplant Linguine

Late Summer Tomato & Eggplant Linguine

The bounty of tomatoes and eggplant has me almost overwhelmed- but in the best way. This Late Summer Tomato & Eggplant Linguine is one of the handful of recipes I’m squeezing in this season. Yes, it’s quite late in the summer (okay it’s technically fall now), but there’s still copious amounts of eggplant and tomatoes […]

Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Blistered Green Beans & Summer Squash

Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Blistered Green Beans & Summer Squash

I tried this method of roasting gnocchi about a month ago and have been pretty (okay, REALLY) obsessed with it since. Especially when I had just moved and had pretty much nothing in my apartment kitchen but wanted to cook a meal. It’s about as simple as it gets. Minimal equipment and effort, maximum reward. […]

Black Bean Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Black Bean Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Don’t like traditional burgers? I got you covered. Making your own bean burgers does take an extra step than buying them from the store. But unlike most store-bought versions, you can pronounce every ingredient and black beans are the bulk of what’s in here.  Behind the Recipe: Black Bean Burgers with Caramelized Onions Okay- don’t […]

Black Bean Burgers with Smashed Avocado

Black Bean Burgers with Smashed Avocado

As someone who doesn’t eat traditional burgers and is often looking for alternatives, a solid bean burger recipe felt like a necessity in my toolbox. BUT I’ll be honest- I’ve had some pretty bland black bean burgers so was I was a little skeptical. My goal: packed with flavor, but not overly complicated.  After doing […]

Easy Basil Falafels with Green Goddess Dressing

Easy Basil Falafels with Green Goddess Dressing

This recipe is a riff off of my original green falafels recipe I made about a year ago- I still love falafels as a protein source for my lunches, although I wanted to find ways to make this easier and simpler. You do really need a food processor for this one, but if you have […]

Creamy Tortellini Tomato Vegetable Stew

Creamy Tortellini Tomato Vegetable Stew

This dinner hits the nail on the head on all fronts: It works for leftovers. It’s a one pot meal and simple to make (about an hour, but most of that is simmering time) It’s full of veggies. It’s a crowd pleaser- who doesn’t like a) tortellini and b) tomato? I tend to like my […]

Weeknight French Onion Soup

Weeknight French Onion Soup

You’ll never get the restaurant version again once you see how simple and delish it is.  The key to making this on a weeknight: Make the onion soup in advance over the weekend, then enjoy it over the next few days by reheating it using the broiler to toast the baguette and melt the cheese […]

Weeknight Red Lentil & Coconut Dal

Weeknight Red Lentil & Coconut Dal

The ultimate Meatless Monday meal: A one pot meal that comes together in about 30 minutes and can be enjoyed as leftovers the rest of the week. It strikes the perfect combination of simple, comforting, and flavorful. While there are some veggies- carrots, onions, and tomatoes- in this dal, I like to serve this with […]

Roasted Eggplant Parmesan

Roasted Eggplant Parmesan

My goal: An eggplant parmesan that’s full of flavor and cheese, but just a bit lightened up. The key is roasting, rather than frying, the eggplant, before layering it. While you certainly can use store bought tomato sauce, I recommend taking the extra bit of time to do this simple tomato sauce- a slow and […]

Cheesy Ricotta Zucchini Involtini

Cheesy Ricotta Zucchini Involtini

You know those recipes where you don’t quite get it the first few times, but just KNOW it has potential? That’s this right here. Its presentation is deceiving- this really can be a weeknight meal.  About two months ago a recipe involving zucchini “roll ups” piqued my interest- the presentation was beautiful and I loved […]

30 Minute Penne Alla Vodka

30 Minute Penne Alla Vodka

Okay, okay I know… I didn’t even use penne in this picture for a “Penne all Vodka” recipe. But there’s a reason: you really don’t have to use penne pasta. Many shapes will do! (Okay or maybe I thought I already had a picture when I made this, so when I made it with penne… […]

Mushroom Bulgogi Bowl

Mushroom Bulgogi Bowl

This is a great vegetarian meal for both vegetarians and flexitarians- although you do have to be a mushroom fan! Mushrooms and a strong marinade bring out earthy umami flavors, while a jammy egg adds some substance (p.s. make a few extra eggs to have the next day- you won’t regret it). Fresh cucumbers, carrots, […]

Mushroom Quesadillas

Mushroom Quesadillas

Recently I’ve been focusing on designing recipes for weeknight meals- ones that are a bit more simple and easy, but still have some twist, ingredient, or step that makes it different. Here: a take on a classic quesadilla, but with the addition of marinated mushrooms that are PACKED with umami flavor. Yes, giving them this […]

Flexible Weeknight Vegetable Red Curry

Flexible Weeknight Vegetable Red Curry

One of my favorites for several years, this Flexible Weeknight Vegetable Red Curry is as quick as it is customizable. I’ve made this with shrimp, chicken, and tofu- shrimp is the quickest though! Add in whatever veggies are in season or sound good to you! This is a much longer post that I normally write, […]
