Chickpea and Veggie Fried Quinoa

Chickpea and Veggie Fried Quinoa

Massachusetts is starting to slowly lift restrictions which means that doing basic things like going to the grocery store is becoming easier. Even though I am able to get fresh produce weekly now, I am still finding myself gravitating to pantry staples. So, I put…

20 Minute Dinner: Quinoa Sushi Bowl

20 Minute Dinner: Quinoa Sushi Bowl

I love nourish bowls. I make one for dinner at least 2 times each week. They are perfect for anyone who is short on time or if you have random ingredients to use up in your fridge. And this one is especially amazing because it…

Plantain Chip Nachos

Plantain Chip Nachos

Nachos for dinner sounds really junky, but it doesn’t have to be. I mean they can be if you want them to be but you can make messy, flavorful and delicious nachos that are nourishing too. I had nachos on my mind thoe other day…

Peanut Tempeh Lettuce Cups

Peanut Tempeh Lettuce Cups

This is my first year with a garden and I currently have way too much lettuce. I planted 12 heads thinking that some of them would die or be eaten by animals or that some other fatal injury would take them out. I was wrong.…

Weeknight Pizza

Weeknight Pizza

Pizza is a staple in my house hold. Sometimes, on the weekend, I’ll take the time to make homemade pizza dough, stretch it, parbake it and freeze it for the fastest weeknight dinners imaginable. And sometimes I haven’t done that because life happens so my…

Pineapple Teriyaki Fried Quinoa

Pineapple Teriyaki Fried Quinoa

I’m trying to branch out with my whole grains. Short grain brown rice is my number one. Its cheap, filling and the texture is so good. If you think you don’t like brown rice, try short grain brown rice. It will change your life. Enough…

One Pan Meal: Garlicky Swiss Chard with White Beans

One Pan Meal: Garlicky Swiss Chard with White Beans

Swiss chard doesn’t get enough attention in the age of kale. Don’t get me wrong, kale is great, but so is Swiss chard. Its a little more tender than kale, with a slightly earthier flavor and is packed with vitamins and minerals. My favorite thing…

Spiced Roasted Carrots + Warm Lentil Salad

Spiced Roasted Carrots + Warm Lentil Salad

Weird color carrot season is upon us, which is how I know when carrots are in season. Carrots are one of those vegetables that I always have on hand but I hardly ever make them the centerpiece of a recipe. They go into stews and…

30 Minute Cuban Black Beans

30 Minute Cuban Black Beans

This recipe wasn’t supposed to be quick.  I was originally going to make a fresh pot of beans with and 8 hour soak time and an hour and a half cook time.  Then I realized that cooking all day isn’t everyones idea of fun.  Its…

Your New Favorite Rice and Beans

Your New Favorite Rice and Beans

Rice and beans is a staple for anyone living a plant-based lifestyle but also for many people who are not plant based.  This food combination is inexpensive, non-perishable (before its cooked obviously), nutrient dense and can take on so many flavors.  For this rice and beans…

Oven Baked Falafel

Oven Baked Falafel

Mediterranean food is by far my favorite type of food.  The flavors are so fresh and bright.  Lemon and parsley and my personal favorite- tahini sauce- are all ubiquitous.  Not to mention its typically pretty vegan friendly.  In Cambridge, we have a Lebanese restaurant that is maybe my…

Lentil Stew with Pepita Basil Pesto

Lentil Stew with Pepita Basil Pesto

Meal prepping is all the rage right now.  I have a full time job, so prepping a few meals can be really helpful during my work week.  Most nights I love cooking.  Even though I work in a kitchen as my job, I love coming…
