Vegan Southwestern Black Bean Burgers

I would hazard a guess that every vegan and vegetarian and most non-veggie eaters have had a black bean burger before (at least in the US). They are certainly one of the most common veggie burgers offered at restaurants and in stores. And for good reason! They’re delicious, and a vegetarian classic. There might a …

Tamarind Glazed Tempeh with Stir Fried Vegetables and Rice Noodles

I love the fresh and vibrant flavors in this tamarind flavored dish. Tangy, sweet and sour tamarind is the perfect accompaniment to the nutty flavor of tempeh, which is enhanced with a spoonful of delicious almond butter. The tangy glaze is balanced with some sweet agave nectar, and a healthy dose of spicy heat. The …

But whether you are still dealing with near freezing temperatures, or, like me, overheating in a t-shirt while walking your dog in the afternoon, asparagus is finding its way into your grocery store. It’s certainly the best, and some …

Chipotle Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas

There’s this idea that enchiladas are a complicated dish to make, but that really doesn’t have to be the case! I certainly fell under this impression, and didn’t try to make them for years after I moved into my post-college kitchen (… I mean, apartment). The funny thing is, I would make smothered burritos, which …
