Chocolate dipped coconut pyramids

Chocolate-dipped coconut pyramids (vegan, gluten free, paleo – still tasty)

We had a little birthday celebration at work this week for someone who A) eats very healthily  and B) likes coconut.  Chocolate Covered Katie’s “Coconut Crack bars” seemed like a good fit for a celebratory treat. The recipe came together easily, mixing everything by hand in a large bowl. But after pressing the mixture into a […]

Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pie (Healthy!)

When you’re craving something sweet, chocolately, rich and gooey — but aren’t quite ready to spend A) hours in the kitchen or B) thousands of calories, give this recipe from Chocolate-Covered Katie a try. It really hits the “Dear God, I need something decadent” spot. Bonus: since it’s made with chickpeas (yes, chickpeas; no, you […]

Roasting kohlrabi

See these things? These are kohlrabi. Kohlrabi are in the broccoli family; both the root and the leaves are edible. Though they’re available year-round (if you can find them; I only see them in this area through my CSA or sometimes at the farmers’ market) they’re most abundant in early summer. So what do you […]

Khatte Chole

Another chick pea recipe! But, this is the last one for a long while because I’m not sure how chickpeas could taste more delicious than in this dish. This recipe comes from Madhur Jaffrey’s classic cookbook, Indian Cooking. I stumbled on it via a discussion on Shapely Prose (linking to this recipe) and, not only […]

Chickpea Ratatouille

From Dreena Burton’s Vive le Vegan! is a hearty, filling, economical and, most importantly, delicious chickpea ratatouille. If I were Cathy at Not Eating Out In New York I could even figure out the cost of the meal but I’m not, and I’m bad at math to boot. I adapted it slightly, using honey versus […]

Daring Bakers — Lavash Crackers & Baba Ghanoush

Our DB hosts this month, Shel of Musings from the Fishbowl and Natalie of Gluten A Go Go, challenged us to make lavash, a type of flatbread, and a vegan dip of our choosing. Although we were given the option of baking the lavash without gluten, I went for gluten. The recipe came together fairly […]

Pasta with Swiss Chard, Raisins & Almonds

On Monday, we received a good portion of Swiss chard in our farm share, which I don’t have very much experience with. So I was happy to find this recipe on Epicurious, adding a bit of pasta to turn it into a main meal based on Epicurious user recommendations. I very much like how healthy […]

Roasted Corn, Jicama and Mango Salad

Next time, I’ll reduce to amount of Jicama by half and increase the amount of corn by two or three. I couldn’t get enough of the taste of roasted corn in this salad — delicious! (And, yes, I left out the cilantro…) Roasted Corn, Jicama and Mango Salad4 ears fresh corn, unshucked 1 large jicama, […]

Coconut Chai Breakfast Cake

I am not becoming a vegan. I am not becoming a vegetarian. I like meat and dairy way too much. (In fact, I’m thinking about getting this t-shirt.) But maybe — once in a while — I can dabble with recipes from the veggie side. I’d wanted to make a cake using chai (inspired by […]
