wild mushroom risotto

I have been so busy/stressed/uninspired lately that cooking at home, let alone new recipes has been but a figment of my imagination, but after a long, boring day studying macro economics I was craving a distraction so pursued the cupboards and dragged myself to the…

muhammara middle eastern spread

This Middle Eastern-inspired spread is one of my new favorite recipes, and I have found the perfect gluten-free alternative to breadcrumbs! It’s another yummy recipe from Pure Vegan; a quick and easy, super-tasty spread you can have on any kind of bread as a snack…

hummus, the freshly cooked bean type

So, this hummus recipe has been set for disaster since I first thought I’d make it… I like hummus but I’m generally not a huge fan of beans (or at least my digestive system isn’t); however, my boyfriend loves hummus  so I originally set…

baked ratatouille

I’m in love with Joseph Shuldiner’s new recipe book Pure Vegan. It’s beautifully presented (yes, I’m a sucker for sexy photos of food), and it’s all VEGAN and mostly whole-foods / plant-based, and by this I mean that not all the recipes depend on…

creamy mushroom and leek pasta

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes I get a nasty craving for something creamy… and attending to this craving vegan-style has been easier than I ever would have thought! This dish is cooked, but if you want something raw, check out my chili…

spanish lentils and mushroom stew

It wasn’t my intention to do two blogs in one day, but you have to strike while inspiration is hot, right?! My goal  for 2013 is to try a new recipe every week, and given it’s Sunday of the first week, I had to…

mushroom and lentil loaf

To be totally honest, family holiday meals in the chilly New England climate get me a little down. Being 100% raw was the worst – bringing raw burgers and a dehydrator to the ‘in-law’s’ was kind of embarrassing and no one ever really wants…

peanut vegetable stir-fry

So I know this recipe might get me in ‘trouble’ with some of my strictly raw friends, or those that don’t ever eat honey (or peanut butter for that matter), but sometimes I like to compromise a little so I can cook a meal…

moroccan quinoa pilaf

Today was shopping day and organic berries and stone fruits are out in force, so we spent most of the afternoon eating the delicious selection of cherries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries,  grapes, apricots, and nectarines I so naughtily washed and placed on the counter. As…

hearty lentil soup

Today I played gardener, handy(wo)man, cleaner, laundry-lady, interior (re)decorator, and yogi. Come 6:30pm however, I just didn’t have the energy to add grocery-shopper or gourmet chef to that list! I didn’t eat much all day – about 8 bananas, a dozen medjool dates, and…
