If you did NOT try my Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken, do yourself a favor and check it out 🙂 If you aren’t into chicken, or you are looking for a simpler recipe with a similar flavor profile, this tofu recipe is everything. When the Prince and I traveled through Vietnam, we literally looked to eat asContinue reading “Crispy Lemongrass Tofu”

Fried Artichokes

One of the best canned vegetables – in my opinion – are artichoke hearts. I used the quartered hearts for Green Pea Penne Pasta, but lately I’ve been buying the whole hearts which come about 5-7 per can. One of these days I’ll be able to fry them as good as E.A.T. by Zabar’s. SHOPPINGContinue reading “Fried Artichokes”

Vegan Chipotle Slaw

Serious coleslaw enthusiast here! I love it creamy, I love it tangy – it’s just a great vessel for raw cabbage that you can spice up in a variety of ways. I was going to saute a pound of turkey meat with chopped garlic and Frontera Red Enchilada Sauce to make easy tacos for dinnerContinue reading “Vegan Chipotle Slaw”

Triple Sesame Green Beans

I’ve never cooked much with bamboo shoots, but when I was looking for canned goods – outside of your usual suspects like corn, chickpeas, baked beans, etc. – I saw these Native Forest Organic Bamboo Shoots and threw a bunch of them in my cart. Combine that with a newfound appreciation for tahini – thanksContinue reading “Triple Sesame Green Beans”

Peanut Butter Braised Cabbage

Check this out! At this point you know I’m one of these cabbage obsessed weirdos, so when this Caramelized Cabbage recipe went viral (in my world) I knew I wanted to try my hand at slow-roasted cabbage this way. I took a decidedly Asian twist, choosing my make my own quick *and spicy* peanut sauceContinue reading “Peanut Butter Braised Cabbage”

“Sausage” and Peppers

BIG big fan of hot Italian sausage over here so your basic Sausage + Peppers has been an easy go-to in our household for years. I always like using the mini tri-colored peppers when making this dish because they are so sweet and they get SO juicy when you roast them. However, from watching JerseyContinue reading ““Sausage” and Peppers”

Eggplant Caponata

Just look at this beauty. I’m a frequent customer at my local Eataly for their caponata. It’s just one of those prepared foods that’s delicious cold, full of flavor!!! and is yummy alone or paired with food (I like to eat it with the Eataly chicken salad which I know sounds weird but don’t knockContinue reading “Eggplant Caponata”

Green Curry Tofu

I feel like fashion bloggers always show their ZARA hauls and I should do the same thing for Whole Foods. I love food shopping, I love picking my own produce, I love talking to the people at the fish counter about their recommendations, and I love seeing the new products at my local Whole Foods.Continue reading “Green Curry Tofu”

An Ode to Cabbage

This really should have been my inaugural post considering that cabbage, without exaggerating, is one of my favorite foods; but the truth is – it normally doesn’t look this GORGEOUS!!! A close friend of mine got me into cabbage a long time ago as part of a vegetable stir-fry that she often made, and throughContinue reading “An Ode to Cabbage”

The Secret Sauce.

If you can’t tell by now – I am a sauce person – or else this is the first post you’re reading. Either way, welcome 🙂 and let me tell you about one of my favorite sauces as of late – Siete Spicy Queso. This cashew queso is vegan (are you sensing a theme?) andContinue reading “The Secret Sauce.”
