Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

Despite the occasional 50-degree day, Connecticut’s gotten a lot of snow this winter. After a cold day at work and a two-mile trudge home through the snow and ice, there’s nothing that makes me happier than coming home to a hot bowl of soup. Black bean soup is healthy, hearty fare that’s sure to warm...
Raw Zucchini Salad

Raw Zucchini Salad

This bright and flavorful raw zucchini salad is loaded with fresh tomatoes and tender zucchini noodles. It looks fancy, but it’s fast, simple, and doesn’t require the use of a stove — all prerequisites for a good summer meal, in my book.
Broccoli Slaw

Broccoli Slaw

Though it’s admittedly hit-you-over-the-head American food, this simple, tasty broccoli slaw has a warm place in my heart. I first encountered this shredded fruit-and-veggie side dish during my internship at Farm Sanctuary in 2010 — days filled with endless reading and writing and thinking and heart-aching and cold morning runs listening to Latterman’s No Matter...
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...
Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

Vegan Cadbury Creme Eggs

You might wonder why a vegan atheist is reverse engineering Cadbury Creme Eggs, but look: my philosophy is that there’s (just about) never a reason not to party, okay?*
Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

As with my mother and grandmothers before me, I spend some portion of every December preparing an array of sweet treats to share with (and send to) folks I care about. And sure, creating a dozen varieties of sugar-laden cookies and candies over the course of a weekend requires an iron stomach and a superhuman...
Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

I know, I know: these pumpkin pie overnight oats really aren’t much to look at. Just hear me out!
Curried Coconut Lentils

Curried Coconut Lentils

I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in New Haven, it’s getting cold. Not that I’m complaining! Last night I got in perfect cold-weather form and whipped up a pot of curried coconut lentils.
Warm Cabbage Salad

Warm Cabbage Salad

Have I mentioned that I love cabbage in all its forms? Because I do. This warm cabbage salad is a beautiful, bright, and nutty salad certain to cheer you up when the weather gets cool and the leaves start to fade.
Garlic Broccoli Stirfry

Garlic Broccoli Stirfry

Is there anything Joy of Cooking can’t do? Obviously the answer to this question is a firm yes. Take, for example, the fact that my version of this book, published a mere 6 years ago, contains only two recipes calling for tofu as an ingredient.
Rancho Beans

Rancho Beans

It’s only autumn, and already I’ve caught the casserole bug. A few years ago, my grandmother gave me a copy of her church’s spiral-bound cookbook, a compilation of all the favorite recipes of the nearby farmers and homemakers. These books are incredible — I have been known to sit and read them aloud for sheer...
