Roasted Vegetables 101: How To + Tips

Roasted vegetables are underrated. One of the reasons I love roasted vegetables is the slightest hint of charred flavor that baking adds to veggies. This way you get your fill of bright, colorful veggies including a few that you may not normally eat rather than overdosing on one vegetable followed by hating it. I know that you might perceive using the oven as time-consuming or intimidating if you’re new to … Continue reading Roasted Vegetables 101: How To + Tips

Red Curry Tofu Skewers | Vegan

One morning I was out of ideas for lunch and I thought of making oven-grilled red curry tofu skewers with my latest market discoveries. I was a self-confessed Whole Foods addict when I lived in New York. I used to spend hours there on weekends or after work, going through every aisle, reading the ingredients and nutritional information on everything.

It’s not that I avoid bread (I love it) but I like to focus on it when it tastes really, really … Continue reading Greek Bruschetta (Or Spiced Chickpea Flatbread?)

The Perfect Green Salad

Before I lived in America I was never really a “salad person”. Even through my years in Michigan, salads were not a go-to meal for me. New York changed it all – salads are basically the one thing everyone eats for lunch when you work at a large investment bank like I did. I tried it out – Just Salad, Chop’t, Sweet Green, you name it. … Continue reading The Perfect Green Salad

Cherry Tomato Pesto Bruschetta

We almost always have pesto in our freezer or a fresh bag of basil leaves in the fridge – so when we don’t know what to make and no one is in the mood to make an effort, it’s pesto + something (usually sandwiches, quinoa or pasta). In the beginning it’s an easy go-to but over time it gets boring and monotonous (like any other meal). … Continue reading Cherry Tomato Pesto Bruschetta
