Baked Taquitos with Cauliflower and Black Bean Filling

It may sound bizarre if you’ve never tried it, but my favorite ingredient for creating a meaty taco-like filling is actually cauliflower. By pulverizing a head of cauliflower in a food processor into small bits, and then sautéing it with some spices, shallots, beans, and corn, you have a super-delicious filling that has both the flavor and texture of taco filling. But the fun doesn’t stop there, because then we’re …

How to Cook the Best Mushrooms + A Portobello Rice Bowl

By  •  Main Dish

Every time I post a mushroom recipe, I get at least a few comments from people saying they (or someone they cook for) refuse to eat mushrooms. The reason mushrooms get so much hate is nearly 100% because of bad cooking technique. It’s true – in their raw form, mushrooms have a spongey texture and a bland flavor which isn’t exactly the most appetizing thing in the world… but when …

Cheesy Vegan BBQ Potato Skins

When I was growing up, over half my family worked at a local BBQ restaurant. I haven’t been there in 10+ years, but I still remember the exact flavors of their potato skins – baked potato halves, scooped out and filled with BBQ sauce, chicken, cheese, cilantro, and red onions. This week I had the crazy idea of recreating a healthier vegan version of these BBQ potato skins and, wow, …

One-Dish Quick Quinoa Queso Skillet with Chipotles

By  •  Main Dish

In my opinion, quinoa is the perfect food: complete protein, complex carbs, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s no wonder that the Inca warriors ate quinoa before going into battle, and NASA is considering it as a primary crop for long-term space travel. As many quinoa recipes as I’ve posted over the years, this Quick Quinoa Queso Skillet is my new favorite – the flavors are INSANE. You’ve got the smokiness …

Butternut Squash with Cranberry Quinoa Stuffing

By  •  Main Dish

Quinoa stuffing has been a staple at my Thanksgivings for quite some time and I make it differently each year. This one is my new favorite. It has every great flavor of Thanksgiving tossed together in one dish: the classic stuffing components of celery and onion, the fresh sage and earthy cumin, plenty of cranberries, chopped parsley, and pine nuts. Now, stuffing implies that it will be stuffed into something, …

Creamy Pumpkin Pasta Sauce

It’s a very pumpkin week here on 1IC… How better to follow up double-pumpkin cornbread muffins than with a creamy pumpkin pasta sauce? Okay – let’s be honest. We’re all a little leery about the idea of making a pasta sauce with pumpkin puree, right? It just seems like a weird paring with pasta. Today, however, I hope to quell your apprehensions because this sauce has become one of my …

How to Eat Like a Forager

By  •  Main Dish

One of my favorite books of this year was Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. Early in the book, the author discusses our ancestors, the hunter-gatherer tribes from 50,000 – 10,000 years ago. We tend to think of these early humans as simpleminded prehistoric cavemen. But Sapiens explains how they were almost certainly the happiness, healthiest, fittest, and most skilled human beings in the history of our species. The interesting …
