Miso-Hoisin Glazed Tofu and Baby Bok Choy

I’m not sure how something with such a short ingredient list can be so insanely good. Well actually, I do get it, because every ingredient in the sauce has such a complex flavor (not including the water, of course!). This was one of those dishes that I couldn’t stop talking about. During dinner I not-so-humbly proclaimed I …

Chickpea and Couscous Stuffed Red Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a classic vegetarian entree, maybe a bit less popular these days, but a common dish nonetheless. It’s definitely a dish I’ve been served on more then one occasion, typically filled with 90% rice, 10% cheese. The problem with this is 1) they are so not filling, one pepper and I’m still hungry, 2) …

Corned Tempeh Pasties

You want a pasty? I want a pasty. Corned tempeh pasties! Flakey layered pastry dough filled with a zesty corned tempeh and mashed potato filling that is peppered with scallions, which provide an oniony bite.

There’s this idea that enchiladas are a complicated dish to make, but that really doesn’t have to be the case!

The funny thing is, I would make smothered burritos, which …

Vegan Potato and Chipotle Sausage Quiche

2016 was a big year for me. I got married to the best person, quit my job, went on a month long honeymoon-adventure road tripping across South Africa and Namibia (clocking in around 4,000 miles), came back, sold our home in Chicago, packed up and downsized our things (because, omg, the rent here), put our dog and …
