Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Summer food: because you can’t actually spend 12 hours a day loitering in air-conditioned coffee shops. Because laying on the kitchen floor and humming the same NoFX song for hours at a time will get to you at a certain point. Because humans cannot survive on carrot sticks and ice water alone. Because who even...
Tofu Salad Sandwich

Tofu Salad Sandwich

When I was in college in upstate New York, some of my veg-head housemates were obsessed with Bridge tofu, which we had delivered to our house in a 5-gallon plastic bucket. It may come as a surprise to some of you that different brands of tofu taste and feel different, but they do! And the...

It felt like no matter what dish she cooked for our nightly dinners, she would find a way to squeeze avocados...
Jalapeño Hummus

Jalapeño Hummus

Owning a pressure cooker has improved my life in so many ways,  not the least of which is that keeping a bottomless container of jalapeño hummus in my fridge is easy peasy. Just set me up with a pile of carrot sticks and we’re in business.
Peanut Butter Banana Shake

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

Now that summer has finally and undeniably arrived, let’s take a quick break from baked goods and anything that involves an open flame or heat-producing coil. When it’s as hot as it is in half of the U.S. this weekend, just thinking about cooked food makes me sweat. So instead of getting down with Vegan...
