A Heaping TBSP of Life

Main Dishes

Doenjang Jjigae

Doenjang Jjigae

For lots of people ‘comfort food’ is meatloaf and mashed potatoes and mac ‘n’ cheese. Although I am a fan of mac ‘n’ cheese (who isn’t!?) I would politely challenge the assumption that in order to qualify as comfort food, it has to be thick, […]

Turkish Chili

Turkish Chili

First off, calling this Turkish is probably a bit of a stretch to be honest. But we’re not going to get into that! As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, one of the hardest parts for me in a vegetarian/vegan diet is getting enough protein and iron. […]

Drunken Noodles

Drunken Noodles

I first ordered drunken noodles on a whim because I liked the name.  Once I got my plate full of sauce-y savory noodles and tasted my first bite, I was hooked.  The dish is essentially what it sounds like:  a massive plate of spiraling noodles […]

Carrot-Ginger Soup

Carrot-Ginger Soup

What do you do when a bushel of carrots is on sale for $5?  Well, buy all of them of course! Which is absolutely what I did.  My motto for farmer’s marketing: stock up now, worry about how in the heck you’re going to eat […]

Aloo Saag Curry

Aloo Saag Curry

The farmers market produce seems to come in waves around here.  Meaning, I like to buy metric tons of certain vegetables when they look good, and nothing of everything else.  Such was the case with the potatoes and tomatoes last week. There were 1/2 bushel […]

Coconut Turmeric Curry

Coconut Turmeric Curry

I’ve been all about simplicity lately.  The days are long and hot, which has had me dreading turning on the oven for more than a few minutes, and my work schedule has been crazy (I’m up to 30 hours already and it’s only Wednesday morning!!)  […]

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

Okay, I’m going to start this off with a disclaimer. I am pretty sure this isn’t an authentic recreation of Pad Thai. Whew. Got that out of the way. That being said, please don’t stop reading. It might not be strictly authentic, but I can […]

Tropical Pancakes

Tropical Pancakes

I rarely wake up craving pancakes, but when I do…the cravings are real!! Of course, the one time that I woke up wanting a stack of these light fluffy pillows of buttermilk, sugar and all purpose flour also happened to be right smack dab in […]

Apricot Chili Stir Fry

Apricot Chili Stir Fry

My little garden finally produced it’s first meal-sized crop the other day, and I went straight to the kitchen with it! There were fingerling eggplants, fresh onions, and bucket-loads of bok choy.  I added some garlic and ginger from my fridge, whipped up my favorite […]

Zesty Cuke and Tofu Bowl

Zesty Cuke and Tofu Bowl

Do you ever just see an ingredient in the grocery store or at the farmers’ market, and buy it?  Not because it’s on your list, or you had a sudden inspiration of what to do with it, but because, – well-, because it just looks like […]
