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

By  •  Main Dish

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 …

Here, we’re simply mashing some of these garbonzos in a pan along with spices to create the easiest taco meat substitute you’ve ever made. Now, what about the pomegranates? My community garden is overflowing with ripe pomegranates this time of year and, as …

Classic Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Mushrooms

I’m lucky enough to live in a city where there are several amazing vegan-friendly Thai restaurants; green curries, yellow curries, red curries, tom yum soup, pad see ew, pad Thai, and of course Thai iced tea with coconut milk. Amazing vegan Thai food is never more than a few blocks away. Naturally, I’ve been inspired to start exploring Thai cooking at home lately, and I thought I’d share my recipe …

Sushi Roll in a Bowl

By  •  Main Dish

Today we’re making a classic plant-based sushi roll… in a bowl instead of a roll (stay with me). The idea is to layer all the flavors and ingredients of a simple sushi roll (rice, nori, soy sauce, wasabi, carrot, avocado, and more) into one big, delicious rice bowl. I can’t even begin to tell you how well this works. It tastes just like sushi, but it’s a rice bowl. It’s …
