A blended soup of butternut and acorn squash, cream, and fresh herbs. Topped with crisp and cheesy croutons, this soup is remarkable.
This soup is nothing short of stunning. Vibrant. Mesmerizing. It is the dinner equivalent to typing in all caps, and begs to be described with exclamation points. Green! Orange! Red! Exciting! Great for guests, since many people have not seen a squash used as a bowl before. Serve with an arugula or spinach salad topped with fresh goat cheese.
If you are a fan of minestrone, you will surely enjoy this veggie-laden version. The kale is a particularly nice touch, imparting a complementary texture as well as a nutritional punch. Wholesome and satisfying, this soup seems to get better in the couple of days after it is cooked. You may find yourself distracted in the quiet of your workday, looking forward to your leftovers.
Almost effortless to prepare, but gratifying. Lime and scallions make unlikely companions for squash, but it works. Lime juice tempers the sweetness of the squash, while scallions lend a savory touch. A nice diversion from more traditional squash recipes.
A light and healthful dinner. Simple to prepare, though very restorative. Miso, a fermented food, aids digestion and is rich in Vitamin B and trace minerals. Tasty, as well as beneficial for the immune system.
Visually, this breakfast takes the (coffee?)cake. Nests of cheesy polenta grits are lined with wilted collards and filled with a bright and cheery egg, then baked in the oven until the egg sets. Hearty and appealing.
Worthy of Sunday morning with the whole family. This is the type of breakfast that will make you want to linger at the table. Toothsome and pleasing, these autumnally spiced whole-grain pancakes flecked with bits of cranberry and apple are covered in a sweet-tart cranberry syrup.
This is the type of deeply comforting breakfast that conjures memories of your childhood-wintry mornings spent in the warm kitchen while windows fogged and the din of dishes clinked gently in the sink. Pots of coffee sputtered while you set the table. Warning: may make you want to stay in your pajamas all day.
A savory egg dish perfect for any time of day. Broccoli and artichokes are a mouthwatering mixture, and are only improved by the addition of sharp melted cheddar and pungent Parmesan.
A pureed soup that is hearty, though not too heavy. The delicate flavors of celeriac and pear harmonize with one another, while garnering support from potato, onion, and garlic. A gratifying meal, especially when sopped up with thick slices of crusty bread and served with a side of tossed mixed greens or spinach salad.
Tender baked celeriac characterized by a creamy, Indian inspired, spiced sauce. An entree or side that accentuates a salad of mixed greens tossed in a light vinaigrette. Easily altered according to whatever spices suit your fancy. Garam masala for Indian one night, smoked chili peppers and cumin for Southwestern another night. Tasty.
This quiche is the ilk that makes one's mouth sing. Yes, it is time consuming. Yet it is toothsome. Dreamy. Warm. Cheesy. You may find yourself closing your eyes as you chew, while your dinner companion's brow furrows with the effort of trying to identify the subtle flavor that you know to be nutmeg. Perfection wrapped in pie crust.
Chilled avocado soup is a simple summer favorite sure to cool you down despite the dog days. Tomatillos, lime, and just a hint of heat from a roasted poblano pepper fill out the flavor of this dish that works wonders, especially when served with a side of chips and spicy salsa.
This salad combines the wonderful flavors of jicama and avocado with refreshing citrus. However, contrasting textures make this recipe really sing. Crisp and refreshing, this salad is a great light dinner on its own, but is also perfect paired with jerked pork (or tofu) for a tropical evening at home. Mango margaritas, anyone?
A unique bean burger that utilizes avocado in the patty rather than as a condiment. A very nice variation on the veggie burger.
This basic stir-fry can be altered according to whatever vegetables you have on hand. Experiment by creating colorful combinations of vibrant vegetables, varying textures for additional appeal.
One word: incredible. A deeply flavorful and robust mushroom soup, topped with a thick slice of French bread covered in a layer of golden brown, melted mozzarella cheese. This is the meal you want to prepare for that special evening you've been anticipating.
An incredibly hearty, deeply satisfying meal. Portabellas paired with the crowd-pleasing combination of blue cheese and walnuts makes for an instant hit. Elegant enough for company, though also perfect for a pleasant evening at home with the family. In one word, dreamy.
A favorite among vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Perfect for outdoor barbecues, but just as delicious when cooked on the stove top in a skillet.
A very simple, yet satisfying meal. Most of this recipe's prep time is spent marinating the vegetables, which can be done in advance. This from-scratch meal requires little more effort than convenience food, yet tastes like home cooking. An added bonus is that we source our portabellas locally year-round!
This is vegetarian comfort food, pretty enough for a savory Sunday brunch or other special occasion.
