I’m in love with turnips and I didn’t know that until this week! I’ve never cooked with them before, because for some reason, I assumed that they were bitter like radishes. Au contraire! It’s mellow in flavor and actually quite delicious raw. For this recipe, I cook it like I would a potato in a [...]
There is no way I’ll feel compelled to go back to the white potato after today’s recipe. I’ve skinned, chopped and cooked celeriac (celery root) in butter with a dash of salt and pepper. That’s it. The great thing about celeriac is that it softens quickly – within 2-3 minutes of cooking – and develops [...]
I bought a massive cabbage last week and have been trying to find new ways to use it, as it doesn’t seem to ever finish. I’ve been sneaking it into my daily green juice as well as sautéing it with different vegetables every night. Most recently, I paired it with white beans and parsley for [...]
This recipe combine the sweet caramelized scent of maple syrup with the earthiness of carrots. It’s a light vegetable dish that really lets the carrot shine through, despite the kick from cinnamon and maple syrup. It makes a great side dish or lunch. Enjoy!

In my experience, it’s a comfort dish that I’d see at family gatherings or holiday dinners, not an everyday side dish unless, that is, it’s the packaged grocery store variety that [...]
One of the nasty pitfalls of becoming vegan or pursuing a more plant-based, healthy lifestyle is the allure of vegan or low-calorie products. These packaged goods mock the “real” thing with often not so forgiving preservatives, colorants, and other additives. That’s why one of the biggest challenges is finding simple, within-hands-reach ways to replace the [...]
I’m really on a Winter squash kick these days. I had some leftovers from my Maple and Sage Roasted Butternut Squash recipe, so I used them to make a quick soup. I also loved the idea of enjoying soup with a festive and pretty carnival squash as the bowl. Together, the squash galore makes for [...]
Now that my electricity has recovered – damn you, Sandy – I wanted something warm and comforting, since most of what I’ve been eating this past week has been raw and cold. Butternut squash was most certainly on my radar. It’s a healthy, filling and highly diverse ingredient. Instead of laboring over intense, labor-intensive or [...]
