No-Tuna Chickpeas and Shells

By  •  Main Dish

If your freezer is now stocked with bags of freshly-made chickpeas after my tutorial a few weeks ago, I can’t think of anything better to do with them than make this super-simple chickpea tuna salad, which is great on sandwiches or salads, but also makes some amazing no-tuna & shells. In all honesty, I remember tuna and shells tasting super gross when I was a kid. Mayonnaise and canned fish …

Wild Rice with Wild Mushrooms and Other Wild Things

By  •  Main Dish

It’s pretty much guaranteed that if you’re looking for a wild rice recipe, it’s going to have wild mushrooms too. Although, unless you’re hunting them yourself, “wild” mushrooms are pretty hard to come by. After scouring local stores for mushrooms, the most exotic I could find were shiitake and oyster. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sticking with the wild theme, I wanted to include as many ingredients as possible that could be called wild. …

Pulled Jackfruit Enchiladas Verdes

By  •  Main Dish

Jackfruit! I can’t believe this is my first ever journey into the crazy world of jackfruit. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, jackfruit is a weird green tropical fruit that can weigh as much as 100 pounds (!) and has a white flesh that kind of tastes like… nothing. So what’s all the fuss about? The texture. It has a firm, meaty texture that …

The Buffalo Tempeh Ranch Wrap

By  •  Main Dish

One of my favorite flavor combos in the whole world is buffalo + ranch, but this is surprisingly my first attempt at putting those two flavors together in one of my own recipes. I couldn’t be happier with it. The spicy buffalo-coated tempeh strips and the shredded greens coated with cool cashew-based ranch is incredible. Throw in some avocado for good measure and wrap it all in a tortilla for …

How to Cook the Best Ramen Noodles

By  •  Main Dish

You may be surprised to see this classic junk food on a blog about unprocessed cooking, but ramen noodles really aren’t any less healthy than other types of wheat noodles. The reason they’ve gotten a bad name is because of the nasty flavoring packets that are usually included for making a soup with the noodles. But if you get a good brand (I like Koyo) and throw away the flavor …

Buddha Bowl with Tasty Chickpeas and Red Pepper Chimichurri

By  •  Main Dish

I’m not sure what a Buddha Bowl even is anymore. Back when I posted my original buddha bowl recipe a few years ago, my understanding was that it meant a bowl of finely-chopped vegetables tossed with a grain like rice or quinoa. But now, if you do a search for buddha bowl, it seems to be used for any vegetarian recipe served in a bowl. Hmm. However, I’m still holding …

Curried Red Lentil and Potato Soup

By  •  Main Dish

I’m not really sure what the difference is between a curry and a soup, but this dish – built on red lentils and potatoes, with bright Thai curry paste and tangy non-dairy yogurt — falls into that grey area. It would be just as good on a plate with rice as it would by itself in a bowl. Technically, curry doesn’t even exist. In India, the word curry apparently just …

Creamy Peanut Butter and Lentil Curry

By  •  Main Dish

By far the most popular recipes on my site are the curries. There’s the original Chickpea Curry, the Coconut and Sweet Potato Curry, the Dal Bhat, and the Dal Makhani. Adding to that list is this incredible, creamy curry made with peanut butter and lentils. It’s kind of “region independent” in the sense that it draws influence from Indian curries, African dishes, and maybe even some Thai inspiration as well. …
