Recently I haven’t had a ton of time to cook. But just because I don’t have much time, doesn’t mean I throw up my hands and eat frozen dinners. I just simplify. I make sure I have plenty of veggies on hand and then go from there. Pizza is one of my regular standbys. I especially love green pizza loaded up with anything from arugula and broccoli to parsley, chard or kale. I also like to make easy sandwiches like a vegetarian riff on a Philadelphia hoagie stuffed full of artichoke hearts, hot peppers, lettuce, tomato, onions and cheese.
Here’s a whole collection of vegetarian recipes that are simple and...read full post »
It’s no surprise that I love a potluck—I am a food editor, after all. Potlucks mean the chance to get to try tons of different dishes. But there are always a couple that I wish I hadn’t tried. So what if I could orchestrate a dream potluck with a guest list of great chefs? Each chef would bring a dish. The spread would be fantastic! I can’t bring a bunch of chefs over to your house for dinner, but I can help make this fantasy a reality. And that’s just what I did for the May/June issue of EatingWell Magazine: a virtual celebrity-chef potluck, with a great take-along party recipe from each chef.read full post »
Forget all this chatter about how it's hard to cook dinner, especially a vegetarian dinner. Erin posted earlier this week in this group saying that it's easy to think of a piece of chicken, a side of broccoli and rice as dinner. And that it's harder to come up with vegetarian dinner ideas. She's right. But once you do a little reimagining of what dinner can be, you'll realize there are tons of options out there, from frittatas to a hearty bowl of soup, to a big salad with lots of veggies and beans. My favorite answer when I'm pressed for time, but I still want a healthy home-cooked dinner: a sandwich or wrap. I make a quick green salad, oven fries or roasted vegetables to go with it and I'm set. Here's a collection of healthy, easy vegetarian...read full post »
I have been in the mood for pasta. So when I got home last night from a weekend out of town, I knew what I was going to make...Bean Bolognese. It may sounds like an oxymoron, since bolognese is basically meat sauce, but it's not. This recipe has such amazing flavor you won't miss the meat. Actually about half way through the meal, my husband asked, "what kind of meat's in this pasta?" None, honey! It's totally meatless and totally delicious. Try it and some of our other fabulous meatless pasta recipes in this collection. Enjoy!read full post »
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and I don't have plans to go out. But I am going to cook up a Mexican feast. To me, it's just another great excuse to cook Mexican, and maybe drink a michelada (my favorite chile, lime, beer concoction.) I'm going to make Butternut Squash & Bean Tacos with Green Salsa (see the photo below). This recipe was created by cookbook author Vanessa Barrington for a story we did for EatingWell magazine on heirloom beans. (I may just use canned beans, unless I get my act together and put on a pot of pintos to simmer when I get home tonight.)
If you’re inspired to cook for Cinco de Mayo, check out this slideshow of meatless Mexican dinner recipes including those...read full post »
