This Pesto & Roasted Vegetable Flatbread Sandwich recipe was one of the crazy-good ways I used my kale pesto this week. It’s simple and easy, perfect for a weeknight meal, plus it’s packed with tons of satisfying vegetable goodness that even meat eaters will love. You can change up the roasted vegetables, to use up what you have in the fridge already, and pair with fresh fruit as a healthy side dish. Talk about a winner. Enjoy!
A couple weeks back, Matt and I tried out farm-camping using a booking site known as Hip Camp. We chose an organic farm called Moon in the Pond Farm located in Massachusetts. We usually camp at standard camp grounds, but after several experiences feeling as though we were too close to other campers, we decided… Continue reading Heirloom Tomato & Peach Sandwiches with Creamy Goat Cheese
Homemade veggie burgers are the perfect way to make everyone happy. My black bean burgers are hearty enough for meat-eaters, delish enough for foodies and fit perfectly into a health nut’s diet regimen. These zesty burgers are packed with plant-based protein, fiber and flavor. Additionally, because I use arrow root powder and almond flour as… Continue reading Mexican-Spiced Black Bean Burgers (vegan | gluten-free)
With the same look and texture as pulled pork, pulled strands of roasted spaghetti squash tossed with a clean, healthy bbq sauce is the perfect sandwich filling. For some extra flavor, roasted rings of sweet onion go on top. Plus more bbq sauce, obviously. And that’s it. Simple, flavorful, health-supportive bbq, just in time for warm summer nights.
More and more these days, Matt and I find ourselves playing the fridge-clean-out-game when deciding what to do for dinner. We do about one main grocery shop per week at which point we buy tons of produce, a little bit of meat or poultry for matt and restock our grains, beans and dairy arsenal. I may plan for a couple… Continue reading Quick & Easy: Roasted Asparagus & Hummus Gyros
Hi, friends! And happy March! I don’t know about you, but this warm winter weather is rubbing me the wrong way. It feels totally gross to be outside in New York in February without a jacket. While most seem to be loving it, I’m not loving it at all. It’s too unnatural for me. So,… Continue reading Vegan Falafel Pitas with Roasted Beets, Pickled Onions & Lemon-Tahini Sauce
A couple posts ago I became a spokeswoman for cauliflower steaks (check out my cauliflower reuben sandwiches here). I love them. These seasoned and baked slabs of cauliflower can pretty much be turned into anything, including the spicy buffalo sandwiches I’m sharing today. Classically, the cauliflower in this sandwich would be a deep fried chicken… Continue reading Vegetarian Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwiches
2017 is the year of the Cauliflower Steak. I’m literally obsessed. If you haven’t yet heard of the concept, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like – a slab (or steak, if you will) of cauliflower, roasted or grilled until rich in flavor and tender in texture. Eat this tasty “steak” on it’s own, or… Continue reading Vegetarian Cauliflower Reuben Sandwiches
I am super excited about today’s post. Like so stoked. And that’s because I honestly didn’t expect much out of this cooking adventure, at least not out of the first attempt at it. I mean, I knew it had potential. The potential was just realized sooner than expected. Despite knowing nothing about Shawarma (other than… Continue reading Portobello Shawarma Wraps with Creamy White Sauce
When I think of some of my favorite meals from my meat-eating days, classic Italian meatballs definitely top the list. Whether on a sub sandwich, over pasta or even on pizza (shout out to Dewey’s Pizza in STL), meatballs are the bomb. Whenever my parents come to visit me in NYC, one of their go-to… Continue reading Vegan Eggplant & White Bean Veggie Balls
Greetings from Florida! I can’t even begin to express how nice it is to be totally checked out of reality for the week. No work, no hustle and bustle, no mass transit. It’s just sun, sand, and relaxation here in Boca Grande, Florida. I’ve been coming to Boca Grande since I was a tot. It’s… Continue reading Mediterranean Chickpea Salad Sandwiches with Feta & Peppers
I’ve said it before, much of my inspiration in the kitchen comes from my mom. Growing up, we had family dinners every weeknight, and my mom always managed to make delicious, creative, balanced and varied meals for us. Because my mom ran a successful non-profit and had three kids, two dogs and a husband to… Continue reading Quick & Simple: Vegan Sloppy Joe Sandwiches
