Beans and Walnuts Meatloaf

November 9 2019 Oh My Veggies 

A classic comfort recipe that everyone will love. Changing the meat for beans and walnuts makes this “meat”loaf even better!        

Recipe | Savory Pumpkin Galette

November 8 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I know most of the people who read my blog aren’t vegetarians. You’re looking to cut down on meat or maybe you’re just looking for some good recipes to add bacon to. (Yeah, don’t think I don’t see your pins on Pinterest saying, “I would add bacon” because I do!) So you’re probably going to eat turkey on Thanksgiving. This post is for those of you who aren’t going to eat turkey. Are you tired of feeling like a weirdo on Thanksgiving? Tired of people making fun of you for eating some sad looking faux turkey? Here’s an idea: Bring your own main dish. But not just any main dish! Oh no! You need to bring something crazy impressive. So then instead of pointing and laughing while you eat your weird vegetarian food, they’ll be all, “Ooh, that looks really good!” Then you can say, “Yeah, it does. AND IT’S MINE. So you can’t have it.” Or you can share. That’s probably more in the spirit of Thanksgiving, isn’t it? The next two weeks on Oh My Veggies are going to be all about Thanksgiving. I’ve got a delicious main dish recipe and some awesome sides, and I’m going to […]

Vodka Pasta Sauce

November 6 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This Vodka Pasta Sauce will blow your mind! Serve this at your next get together with family or friends and you will impress everyone.

Rosemary Roasted Carrots

November 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Recipes by me, photos by Rikki Snyder. Even though I have a food blog, I have to confess that I get overwhelmed when cooking a few things at once. Does that happen to you too, or am I just especially weak and easily confused? It seems like the more I have going on in the kitchen, the more likely things are to end up charred and inedible. So when developing recipes for a vegetarian Thanksgiving, I wanted a good mix of dishes that were a little more involved and dishes that required very little time, effort, or thought. These Rosemary Roasted Carrots are one of the latter. I also decided to add some simple roasted vegetable recipes to our Thanksgiving line-up because I wanted to have some lighter, healthier options in the midst of the stuffing and dessert and mashed potatoes. And that brings me to the other topic of this post: World Diabetes Day. When Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food asked me to be involved in her World Diabetes Day event, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. But then I had a moment of doubt--do I even know how to make a recipe that’s diabetic-friendly? Carolyn […]

Wild Mushroom & Potato Pizza on Whole Grain Naan

October 28 2019 Oh My Veggies 

We love pizza, and we love to experiment. So rather than using a traditional crust, we made this pizza using whole grain naan. Making pizzas with naan is nice when you don’t have the time to mess with the dough--the key is to make sure any veggies you add to your pizza are cooked beforehand because you need to heat your naan at a lower temperature than you’d cook a pizza made with raw dough.

Recipe | Loaded Veggie Nachos with Portabella Mushroom Meat

October 21 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Nachos: the staple food of teenage boys everywhere. It’s not really the type of thing you eat as a meal once you’ve reached adulthood. If someone asks you what you had for dinner last night and you answer “Nachos,” they’re bound to make some unkind assumptions about you. For example, they probably assume that you ate said nachos while sitting on a bean bag chair and using an overturned cardboard box as a table, a bottle of Mountain Dew Code Red by your side. They might also imagine that this meal took place in front of an episode of Cops. These are the things people think about you if you tell them you eat nachos for dinner. But nachos can be classy too! And you can make them without the neon orange cheese sauce and greasy taco meat. Loaded Veggie Nachos are nachos that you can eat as a meal without shame or guilt. Instead of being loaded with bad things, they’re loaded with (mostly) healthy and delicious things. On the subject of greasy taco meat, I replaced that with coarsely chopped portabella mushrooms. I’m really not big into meat analogues, so I hated using the word “meat” in the […]

Wild Rice with Roasted Grapes & Walnuts

October 14 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Last weekend, Chris and I decided to get AppleTV. My plan was to get it, subscribe to Hulu, and then start watching old episodes of Rock of Love immediately. I was so excited that on the way to Best Buy, I sang the Rock of Love theme song, and since I only know approximately 3 lines from it (including “touch my backstage pass” which: ew, Bret Michaels, really???), I’m sure that was pretty annoying to listen to. (My poor husband puts up with so much. Seriously.) When we got home and I was scrolling through to find Rock of Love, I found all of these other trashy reality shows I had forgotten about though. The Surreal Life! I Love New York! Daisy of Love! Weren’t things so much better back then? Wasn’t life so much simpler? Anyway, my goal is to work out while watching these shows, so by the time I catch up on all of them, I’ll be in the best shape of my life. I’ll be able to throw trays of Lean Cuisine stuffed cabbage across a tour bus with the strength of an olympic shot putter. Also, if you work out while watching crappy reality shows, […]

Meaty Mushroom Marinara Sauce

October 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

For a long time, I refused to eat tomato sauce. I ate my pasta plain and when I got pizza, I would carefully separate the cheese from the crust, scrape off all the sauce, and then reassemble each slice. Even now, I’m still picky about tomato sauce. My pasta sauce needs to be full of veggies. Full of them! The veggie to sauce ratio must be high! Unfortunately, a lot of store-bought pasta sauces skimp on the veggies. Mushroom sauces are my favorite because I like the meatiness that the mushrooms add to a pasta dish, but usually store-bought sauces either have a few token slices in each jar or tiny little diced mushrooms that you can’t even taste. Sad! So I decided to make my own mushroom marinara. Yes, it takes more time than opening up a jar, but this recipe makes a lot of sauce, so you can whip up a batch on the weekend, then freeze it in small portions to use throughout the week. Not only is this tastier than buying pasta sauce, it’s much cheaper too. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Recipe | Pear & Sharp Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich

September 23 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Simple fall lunches--this is what I am in desperate need of right now. I’ve gotten bored of just about every single one of my go-to lunchtime options, so when noon rolls around, I find myself standing in front of the pantry, contemplating what I can do with lentils or jasmine rice. And then I just give up and have a handful of potato chips and some olives. (This is the point where you mentally insert a sad trombone sound.) Even though I blog about cooking, I really don’t like making big elaborate lunches. When I made pasta for myself two weeks ago, that was kind of a huge deal to me. I made pasta--for lunch! So I’ve been seeking out some easy, seasonal lunch ideas and I just happened to find a good one on Panini Happy: Granola-Crusted Pear and Almond Butter Panini. Being lazy about lunches, I didn’t do the granola-crusting (and I know I’m missing out, I’m sure of it!), but the pear and almond butter on a sandwich was delicious! One of my favorite fall snacks is pear slices topped with a little bit of cheese, so I decided that this would make a good sandwich too. […]

Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad

September 16 2019 Oh My Veggies 

  This Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad is really simple, and it’s one of our favorite lunch recipes. This recipe is perfect for making at the beginning of the week, to have either for lunch or as an afternoon snack. The protein and fiber in the beans help you feel fuller for longer. Mediterranean Kidney Bean Salad is great to eat on its own, but it’s also a terrific filling for pita bread. And since the oil and lemon juice act as a marinade, this is one of those recipes that tastes better and better as the days go on, so be sure to save some for later! You may find you enjoy the flavor later in the week than you did in the beginning. But, the fresh flavor is also delicious enough that you can whip this up as a side dish for a quick weeknight dinner. Give the recipe a try and let us know how you like it in the comments below.

Sweet Corn, Sausage & Thyme Pizza

September 9 2019 Oh My Veggies 

It has come to my attention that other bloggers have already started posting pumpkin and apple recipes. Sorry guys, I’m not letting go of summer produce that easily. You’re going to have to drag me away from corn and zucchini the same way you have to drag your 3-year-old out of the toy department at Target–crying, kicking, and screaming, “I HATE YOU! YOU’RE THE WORST MOM IN THE WORLD!” So yeah, while everyone else gets a jump start on fall, I’m going to spend the next two weeks enjoying the last bit of summer. I like to cook seasonally and summer produce is still in season! I promise you it is! Sure, you could be eating apples and pumpkin right now, but you’ll have many months to eat apples and pumpkin. What about corn?! You’re going to miss fresh corn in a month when you can’t buy it anymore. You know what you should do? Make this Sweet Corn, Sausage & Thyme Pizza. I make my Fresh Corn, Poblano and Cheddar Pizza at the beginning and end of every summer, but I wanted to try something different, so I threw together this recipe last weekend. I love thyme and corn […]

Recipe | Brown Sugar Peach French Toast Cups

August 30 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I know I post a lot of recipes with peaches. And I fully intended to make this recipe with blueberries or blackberries. Blueberries and blackberries! Two fruits that I’ve completely neglected on my blog. But a little nagging voice in my head kept saying, “No! Use peaches! Peaches will be better!” Usually the voice in my head is too busy singing Poison songs to get involved in my cooking process, so I figured I better listen. If nagging inner voice can take a break from “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” on endless repeat for hours at a time, this must be important! So I went with peaches. Again. I promise, next summer will be the summer of blueberries. Blueberry everything! All summer! You have my word. And my word? It’s gold. If you’ve been reading Oh My Veggies for a while, maybe you remember my Sweet Potato French Toast Cups recipe. I wanted to do that again, but with fruit. The thing I love most about making little individual French toasts in muffin tins is that they’re portion-controlled and easy to freeze. Bake ’em, freeze ’em, and heat ’em in the microwave for breakfast. It doesn’t get much easier than […]

Cake in a Mug

The cooking time of this cake may vary depending on your microwave’s wattage and the size of the cup, pot, or ramekin you use.

Veggie Scrambled Eggs

June 5 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Because there are so many ways to prepare eggs, there is always something for everyone! Scrambled eggs remain an indestructible classic--so simple to make and yet so easy to overlook. A minute of cooking too much, a fire a little too strong and that’s it; the scrambled eggs become dry and overcooked.

Date and Apple Muffins

June 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I love the delicious combination of apple and dates! These date and apple muffins are very nourishing--both healthy and tender.

Lentil No-Meat Pie

Green Vegetables and Tofu Stir-fry

May 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The taste of plain tofu is not a taste that makes us jump with joy, but when given a little love it becomes very interesting. The best way to make it tasty is to let it sit in a marinade. The longer it marinates, the tastier it will be! Even after 1 hour it will have absorbed many flavors.

Crispy Sweet Chili Zucchini with Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce

May 20 2019 Oh My Veggies 

We love zucchini! Even more we love breaded zucchini that tastes like fried! And then because you can’t have breaded zucchini without an accompanying sauce, we upped the snack ante with a spicy, tangy Lime-Almond Dipping Sauce on the side. Kind of like a peanut sauce, but with almond butter instead. The result is an Asian-inspired twist on breaded zucchini that will satisfy even the pickiest of snackers. And the best news? Rice cakes aren’t boring anymore! Disclosure: Brandfluential sponsored the development of this recipe and asked me to share Lundberg’s Rice Cake Double Take contest, but all opinions are my own.

Mexican Baked Polenta with Salsa Beans & Sautéed Veggies

May 17 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This easy dinner uses two of our favorite pantry staples: a tube of prepared polenta and a can of black beans. Add fresh vegetables, salsa, and cheese and youve got yourself a delicious Mexican-inspired meal!

Recipe | Thai Tofu and Noodle Salad

May 13 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Last weekend I went to the mall in attempt to find some jeans that are not skinny jeans and I realized that OH MY GOSH it’s pretty much summer. (Side note: can they please start making jeans that are not skinny jeans again? Because some of us have chunky calves. Thanks.) The air was thick and humid and it was hot out. Not hot hot, because it gets way hotter here, but hot enough that I knew that all the alternating warm-and-cold days of spring were over and now it’s just going to get hotter and hotter until it finally starts to cool down again in the fall. So now that it’s feeling like summer, I think it’s time to start putting some summer recipes on the blog. I decided last summer that cold noodle salads were my most favorite summertime food. Then I remembered: oh, corn. Corn is my favorite summertime food. Duh. But cold noodle salads are a close second! The veggies make them feel light, but the noodles make them more substantive than a regular salad. And they’re cold, which is always welcome on a hot day. This is one of those fun salads where you can […]

Roasted Green Beans & Mushrooms with Walnuts

May 10 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This Roasted Green Beans & Mushrooms recipe is one from my side dish arsenal. Side dish arsenal? Yes! It’s my collection of fast, effortless side dishes–things that can be thrown together quickly so when my main dish requires a little more work, I can make a side that’s pretty much hands-off. They’re also a little bit lower in calories, so they pair perfectly with heavier entrees. I’ve shared a lot of these recipes here already–Barbecue Zucchini Fries, Roasted Broccoli, and Roasted Cauliflower & Kalamata Olives are a few of my favorites. I make sides like this all the time–I used to rely on frozen veggies in such cases, but I’ve been working on building a collection of go-to recipes that take only a few more minutes than those frozen vegetables, but taste a million gazillion (actual number!) times better. This recipe really couldn’t be much easier–the most time-consuming part is trimming the green beans. (And trust me, if you’ve never had roasted green beans before, the 5 minutes of trimming and cutting is well-worth the effort.) Once you’ve cut the beans and mushrooms, you throw them onto a baking sheet with the walnuts, spray them with cooking spray, and 15 […]

Twice Baked Salsa Potatoes with Fajita Veggies

May 6 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Do you ever go to a restaurant and order the same dish every time? For better or worse, I’m a person who likes routine. Usually when I find something I like at a restaurant, I stick with it. My husband always ribs me for ordering the same thing time and time again, but it works for me, so why not, right? But there was one Mexican restaurant that we used to go to and both of us would order the same thing every time we went there–Veggie Fajitas. And then we’d both get a side of spicy, cheesy mashed potatoes. Even my husband couldn’t branch out and try something different because the fajitas were just so flippin’ good. But then! One hot August afternoon, we went to get our usual fajitas-and-potatoes combo and what the server brought out to us shook me to the core. Oh yes, I was shook! Instead of the usual zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and corn, there on our fajita plate was a sad, soggy mix of onions, peas, and carrots. Frozen veggies! Frozen veggies that do not even belong in fajitas! Who puts frozen peas in fajitas? Who?! And even more importantly, why? As much as […]

Roasted Vegetarian Puttanesca Sauce

May 3 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I’m not a lazy cook, but I’m also not opposed to a few shortcuts now and then. One shortcut that I use a lot is jarred pasta sauce. Because it’s easy! And if you buy the right brand, it tastes good too. Or, at least, good enough. (Sometimes good enough is good enough, you know? Especially after a long work day.) Making my own pasta sauce seemed like such a chore, I never bothered attempting it. Well, I’m now fully aboard the homemade pasta sauce train. Homemade pasta sauce! What took me so long?! And the best part is, it’s really not as time-consuming as I thought it would be. Because I’m a big fan of roasting veggies, I decided to use roasted tomatoes as the base for vegetarian puttanesca sauce rather than making it on the stove. Not only does this make the sauce more flavorful, it also reduces the hands-on time for the recipe. Sure, opening a jar of sauce and heating it up in a saucepan is still quicker, but this sauce is worth the (short) wait. You can use the roasted tomatoes as a base for just about any kind of pasta sauceroast the tomatoes with […]

Mushroom & Zucchini Quesadillas with Cilantro Pesto

April 29 2019 Oh My Veggies 

How do you feel about cilantro? Because if you’re a cilantro hater, you may want to avert your eyes. (Or maybe run in terror?) These Mushroom & Zucchini Quesadillas have a generous helping of cilantro pesto on them. So you’ve been warned, okay? Personally, I love cilantro. I never really got all passionate hatred directed towards this inoffensive little herb. I mean, I’m sure there are people who hate basil or oregano. But they don’t make a thing out of it. And cilantro hating is most definitely a thing. There’s even an I Hate Cilantro website. Well, apparently it’s a matter of genetics. Cilantro haters taste soap when they eat cilantro. It’s a genetic predisposition, something they’re born with. There are other explanations too, though–some of the molecules that form the aroma of cilantro are also molecules found in both lye (soap!) and insects. Interestingly, crushing cilantro leaves converts these molecules into other substances which makes them inoffensive to cilantro haters. So cilantro pesto? Should be totally cool with both cilantro haters and cilantro lovers alike. Of course, if you hate cilantro with a passion, it might be too much to ask to even put you in the same room […]

Recipe | Sweet and Sour Tempeh

April 26 2019 Oh My Veggies 

If you’ve been a vegetarian for a while, maybe you remember that in the mid-aughts, Gardenburger was a really big deal. (Sidenote: Don’t you love the word “aught”? It’s so old timey.) When it came to vegetarian convenience foods, there was Gardenburger and there was Amy’s. But then Gardenburger went bankrupt and they were bought out by Kellogg’s and suddenly all the yummy frozen meals were no more. They still make the burgers, but even those aren’t in every grocery store like they used to be. And when I can find them, it’s only the Original flavor, not any of the others. This makes me sad! When I had a bunch of pineapple to use, I was brainstorming for ideas and I remembered the Gardenburger Sweet and Sour Pork that I used to buy constantly when I was in school–my favorite part was always the little bits of pineapple. The whole faux pork thing doesn’t appeal to me so much anymore, but I still think of that frozen meal once in a while, so I thought I’d try recreating it using tempeh. I’ve written about using tempeh before; for a recipe like this, I like to cut the tempeh into […]

Hummus Wraps With Slow-Roasted Tomato & Basil Hummus

April 22 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Are there any vegetables that you absolutely will not eat? I have a few that I could do without, and a few that I like prepared some ways but not others, but I can’t think of very many that I just won’t eat. Carrots and tomatoes, I’ll eat cooked, but not fresh. I’ll eat spinach raw (although I don’t enjoy it much), but unless it’s mixed in with a lot of other things, I won’t eat it cooked. I like peas sometimes, in small amounts, although snow peas can show up on my plate anytime and I’ll happily chow down on them. I try to push myself to give all these things another try once in a while (except my dreaded raw tomatoes), but whenever I do, I quickly conclude, “Okay, I just don’t like this.” And I think that’s okay; we don’t have to like everything, even healthy foods, as long as we’re eating a well-rounded diet. Unfortunately, there are some people who don’t like any vegetables. And that can be a problem! A lot of kids just aren’t big on veggies, so parents try to find ways to sneak them in by throwing butternut squash into mac & […]

Recipe | Deconstructed Breaded Zucchini

April 15 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Clearly I am watching too much Top Chef. Because everything on Top Chef is deconstructed, right? You can’t argue with the fact that breaded zucchini is awesome. So why deconstruct it? Well, because breaded zucchini is a huge hassle to make what with the egg on the hands and the breadcrumbs under the fingernails. And painstakingly dipping each little zucchini round into egg and then breadcrumbs takes a lot of time too. Deconstructed breaded zucchini is breaded zucchini for those of us who are short on time, lazy, or a little bit of both. While the onion might not be included in the original version, I threw it in because I had it on hand and I like sauteed zucchini with onions. So why not? This might not be quite the same as breaded zucchini, but it does take half the time (and effort!), which is a big plus in my book.

Coconut Mango Overnight Oatmeal

April 12 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Having never lived in the tropics, I can’t really tell you when mango season is. But I do know that a few times a year, there’s suddenly an abundance of champagne mangoes at the grocery store. They’ll be strategically positioned at the front of the produce section, boxes stacked precariously on top of each other. And they’re always 5 for $5. While I like regular mangoes just fine, I like the champagne ones even more. They’re a little bit smaller, but I have yet to get one that wasn’t sweet or that was stringy or weird in some other way. So, in summary, I love champagne mangoes and it’s that time of year–cheap champagne mango season. Exclamation point! I’ve been trying out different kinds of overnight oatmeal lately, but I haven’t had success until I came up with this Coconut Mango Overnight Oatmeal recipe. The first time I made overnight oatmeal in a jar, I tried using steel cut oats. I’ve read other people raving about using those in overnight oats, but I have TMJ and chewing on them gave me a jaw ache that stayed with me the rest of the day. Not good! I also tried adding cocoa […]

Recipe | Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Gelato

April 8 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This is the recipe that finally made me realize that our freezer does not get as cold as it should. All last summer, I was on a Zoku kick and I made popsicles at least once a week, if not more. It was our first summer in North Carolina and it was hot. I had never been much of a popsicle person, but in that hot weather, suddenly they were all I wanted to eat. In my popsicle making frenzy, I noticed that the Zoku was taking much, much longer than it should have to freeze my popsicles. So naturally, I blamed the Zoku. In December, I got my ice cream maker. I’ve used it a few times and each time, the ice cream turned out a little bit soupy. I blamed the ice cream maker. So when I made this Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Gelato, it was the same story–it just barely set in the ice cream maker, so I decided to Google it and see what was going on. There were virtually no bad reviews for it and the few bad reviews there were had comments saying, “Your freezer probably isn’t cold enough!” Oh. So that’s why the Zoku […]

Thai Red Curry with Asparagus and Tofu

April 5 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This Thai Red Curry with asparagus and tofu is simply amazing and is so easy to make. Better still, you can serve it with rice noodles or over rice. It’s terrific with both white rice (we recommend a nice jasmine rice for this dish) or brown rice. You really can’t go wrong.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries

April 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Yeah, these chocolate chip cheesecake-stuffed strawberries are healthy. So healthy you can eat them for breakfast. And they’re vegan! They’re indulgent (did we mention they taste like cheesecake?!), but the protein from the cashews helps keep you full. They make a great summertime dessert–if you’re serving them to a crowd, cut the tips off the strawberries and stand them on a platter!

Dark Chocolate Banana Breakfast Muffins

March 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

In my quest for the perfect breakfast muffin, I’ve made Banana Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins and Whole Wheat Chocolate Cherry Muffins. But these Dark Chocolate Banana Breakfast Muffins are my current pick for favorite breakfast muffin. They’re just chocolatey enough to make things exciting, without being so chocolatey that you feel like you’re eating a cupcake for breakfast. Like most of the baked goods I make, I let these cool to room temperature and then I threw them in the freezer. (Well, I put them in a freezer bag and then I threw them in the freezer.) Since it’s just my husband and me in our household, polishing off a batch of muffins or cookies before they go stale just isn’t the best idea, particularly since I’m trying to lose weight. So freezing everything right away gets rid of that “Well, if I don’t eat these, they’ll go bad!” excuse. When I’m having a muffin for breakfast, I let it thaw on the countertop overnight or I microwave it for 20-30 seconds so it’s nice and warm, like it just came out of the oven. Muffins and most cookies tend to freeze pretty well–I haven’t had any issues so far. Just […]

Curried Baked Carrot Chips

March 18 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Last weekend, I harvested carrots. Lots of carrots. Tiny carrots. I always have problems with vanishing seedlings when I try seeding directly in my raised beds, so last fall I thought I’d be smart and sow a ton of carrot seeds and then pull the extra seedlings out when I was sure they were big enough to survive any attacks from small animals or insects. But then it got cold and I got busy and I never thinned out the seedlings. So when I was preparing my raised beds for spring last weekend, I pulled out about 50 bitty carrots. They might be small and okay, they’re a little bit pale too. But I grew them! And they were perfect small carrots. I was kind of excited about my wee carrots, but Chris made fun of them and thought I should throw them in with the compost, to which I responded: “I’m going to blog about this!” (That’s my new response anytime he says or does something I don’t like, by the way.) My carrots may have been too small to use for much, but after I harvested them, I started coming up with ideas for carrot recipes and I […]

Recipe | Shiitake Panini with Roasted Asparagus Pesto

When I make asparagus, nine times out of ten, I roast it. Steamed asparagus is good and sautéed asparagus is better, but neither compare to roasted asparagus. Just like with cauliflower, roasting mellows the flavor of asparagus. It gets caramelized and tender and just perfect in every way. As soon as I saw spring asparagus at the grocery store, I knew I had to buy it, but other than roasting it, I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I played around with different ideas and settled on a sandwich. Roasted asparagus sandwich! You never see asparagus on a sandwich, right?! But then the more I thought about it, I realized there’s probably a reason for that–asparagus would be a little bit unwieldy on a sandwich. So I decided to make an asparagus pesto to spread onto the sandwich and I topped that with roasted shiitake mushrooms and Fontina cheese. Believe it or not, I grilled this on my Griddler, but I can never get nice grill marks on my panini, no matter how long I let it sit on there. Well, the inside still got nice and melty, which is more important than the aesthetics, I think. Served with […]

Recipe | Sweet Potato French Toast Cups with Vanilla Cardamom Creme Anglaise

March 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

A typical weekend breakfast in our household involves microwaved muffins or string cheese. We’re always busy on the weekends and it seems like from Saturday morning to dinnertime on Sunday, we’re running errands or working in the yard. Taking the time for a sit-down breakfast seems like a small luxury. And when we do have traditional breakfast foods like pancakes or waffles, it’s usually for dinner because I’m in no mood for cooking first thing in the morning. The wonderful thing about French toast casseroles, though, is that they can be made the night before–and really, they’re so much better when you make them ahead of time too. Although I’ve never made a French toast casserole myself, I thought I’d try one because doing most of the work the night before and simply popping it in the oven in the morning seemed like the happy medium between the string cheese breakfast and homecooked pancakes or waffles. We’d still have something delicious to sit down to, but I wouldn’t have to be flipping pancakes while groggy and cranky. Of course, a whole French toast casserole is a little too much for two people, so I decided to make Sweet Potato French […]

Recipe | Butternut Squash, Lentil & Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

February 22 2019 Oh My Veggies 

On Friday, the weather was beautiful and the sun was shining and I felt excited and hopeful that spring was almost here. I even tweeted this: I know it's mid-February, but it looks like spring outside. Hooray for sun! — Oh My Veggies (@ohmyveggies) February 15, 2013 ...and then about 20 minutes later, I got a winter weather alert on my phone. And, indeed, we got about an inch of snow on Saturday. I think Chris and I are now true North Carolinians because, when looking out the window at the (pitiful!) accumulation of snow, we decided it was best to stay off the roads and hunker down for the day. How soon I’ve forgotten the days of schlepping around campus at the University of Wisconsin in blizzard conditions or being unable to open the balcony door in our apartment because several feet of snow had sealed it shut. This Butternut Squash, Lentil & Kale Salad was supposed to be my farewell to winter post. I was going to vow to you that you wouldn’t see another kale or winter squash recipe on my blog until next fall rolls around. But after this weekend, I’m thinking it’s more fitting to […]

Chocolate Bread Pudding

February 16 2019 Oh My Veggies 

To use leftover bread, I often make French toast or croutons. This week, I had a little more stale bread than usual, so I decided to make some bread pudding. Bread pudding is a fairly compact and moist dessert, made from leftover (or brioche) bread. The bread is mixed with eggs, sugar, butter, and milk, then baked. I decided to revisit my grandmother’s classic dish by replacing the traditional raisins with chocolate chips.

Leek Pie

February 13 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The eggs and cream in this leek pie give it a smooth, thick texture. This succulent salty pie combines leeks--a delicious vegetable--with eggs to make this tasty quiche. Share this tasty dinner with family and friends!  

Mac and Cheese

February 9 2019 Oh My Veggies

15 Healthy Desserts for Valentine’s Day

February 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Sure, Valentine’s Day is all about the splurging, especially when it comes to dessert. But if you don’t have to load up on saturated fat and empty calories, why do it? Think sultry dark chocolate, sparkling jeweled fruits, and luscious–but lighter–versions of classic favorites like chocolate cake and cheesecake. We’re smitten with these decadent healthy dessert recipes. Recipe Title: Pomegranate Cranberry Hearts Description: No-bake and no-guilt. Cranberries and pomegranates lend a gorgeous natural scarlet hue to these heart-shaped treats from Spabettie–but the real clincher is that sesame cashew crust. Get Recipe Now!

Apple and Cottage Cheese Muffins

January 26 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The advantage of this recipe is that it requires very few ingredients. These muffins are quickly mixed, quickly baked… and quickly eaten! They can be transported easily to eat on the go, in the office, or at school. The inspiration for this recipe came from my having leftover cottage cheese, which I decided to incorporate into some muffins. The cottage cheese makes these muffins so tender and gives them an enjoyable, creamy taste.

Tortellini with Roasted Pepper Sauce

January 23 2019 Oh My Veggies 

When the only things on your shopping list are stuffed pasta and a vegetable, that’s what we call a simple recipe. But not only is this recipe simple, it’s also super tasty! In this recipe I use tortellini to switch it up from the traditional penne and spaghetti. Quick tip: If want to remove the skin from your roasted peppers, remove peppers from the oven, put the pepper pieces in a paper  bag, and wait a few minutes. Once the bag fills with steam, you will be able to easily remove the pepper skins with a knife.

Chocolate Buttermilk Waffles

Delicious Three-Cheeses Stuffed Shells

January 9 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This recipe may seem a little elaborate, but you can easily double the recipe and make another dish that you can freeze for future use. You can also make the cheese preparation ahead of time, reserve it in the fridge, and use it to stuff shells in the future. The shells are easier to serve than lasagna (since they come apart) making this recipe ideal for a shared supper or buffet. Both children and adults will love these three-cheeses stuffed shells!

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Gumbo

January 4 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Kidney beans, zucchini, and mushrooms, replace the meat in this healthy, goodness-packed slow-cooker stew. And don’t worry! The heat is still there with the addition of Cajun seasoning and hot sauce. If you’re not opposed to meatless sausage, Field Roast’s Mexican Chipotle Sausage would be a great way to add some heat (and a little faux meat) too.

Taco Bowl

December 29 2018 Oh My Veggies 

You can serve this taco salad in various ways. For example, you put everything in a large bowl to share with your guests. Another option is to present all the ingredients in small pots so that everyone can create their own salad. Want a more filling salad? Opt for the burrito bowl: in this case, you can add a portion of rice. You also have the opportunity to serve your taco salad in an edible bowl, made from a tortilla.  

Chocolate and Nuts Toffee

December 26 2018 Oh My Veggies 

This toffee was a revelation for me! I had eaten commercial toffee before, but after trying this recipe, store-bought toffee just did not compare. Before this recipe, I always thought that toffee was too complicated to make at home. But it’s really quite simple, as you will see. With a candy thermometer, it’s really a charm to make! This toffee can be stored in a suitable container for at least 10 days.

Mushroom Gravy

December 22 2018 Oh My Veggies 

This sauce recipe can be served with lots of meals. It’s definitely going to become one of your go-to recipes!

White Chocolate and Coconut Cookies

December 12 2018 Oh My Veggies 

If you are a lover of white chocolate and coconut, this will become your favorite treat. You can lengthen the cooking time by 2 or 3 minutes if you prefer a firmer cookie. For a super-moist biscuit, bake for 10 minutes, let it cool on a rack for 10 minutes, and enjoy!

Roasted Broccoli with Meyer Lemon and Garlic

December 7 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Sometimes I have an idea so brilliant that I need to stop whatever it is I’m doing and start working on that idea right away. This week, I had one of those ideas--I would Photoshop my cats into the Kardashian Christmas card. YES. And I did it, but it didn’t quite work out as I had planned because I have surprisingly few pictures of my cats standing straight up, so I couldn’t replace the Kardashians with cats. And then I thought that maybe I would Photoshop my cats’ heads onto the Kardashians’ bodies, but that would take this project from “Ha ha, cats!” to “I think Kiersten is having some kind of mental break and needs help.” So in the end, I just had to Photoshop my cats around the Kardashians, which wasn’t nearly as awesome as my original idea. Isn’t it the worst when you have an idea that sounds so great and then it doesn’t work out? But then sometimes you have ideas you’re not sure about and they end up being even better than expected. Like this Roasted Broccoli with Meyer Lemon & Garlic! I wasn’t sure if it would work, but it did and we loved […]

Chocolate and Peanut Balls

December 1 2018 Oh My Veggies 

These balls make excellent pre-workout snacks, but can also fill your cravings for cookies. They are easy and quick to make. You can freeze the balls and take them out when guests arrive unexpectedly. You can also make a big batch for the holidays right around the corner!    

Fried Eggs on Kale bed

November 28 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Contrary to popular belief, spinach is not a particularly significant source of iron. The myth around its high iron content was born from a study in which a decimal point had been moved by mistake. However, spinach does contain many important nutrients--especially antioxidants and bioflavonoids that help stop carcinogenic substances and processes. Spinach is, for example, rich in carotenoids, plant pigments that are responsible for its dark green color. Spinach is a good source of antioxidants essential for our skin and our health, whether raw, cooked, canned, or frozen.  

Chocolate Pomegranate Granola Bites

November 16 2018 Oh My Veggies 

  These chocolate pomegranate cookies have a fantastic granola taste and, even though they’re small, they’re substantial enough that one is quite satisfying. This recipe makes 40 cookies and if you lack that self-control like I do, you’ll want to freeze a bunch–thaw them on the countertop or zap them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating.

Recipe | Citrus Sesame Kale

November 12 2018 Oh My Veggies 

So tell me, how was your Thanksgiving weekend? Did you eat a lot of food? Are you feeling a little bit sick right now? Need something light and healthy for dinner? Yeah, me too. As I mentioned on Friday, our Thanksgiving dinner consisted of some semi-Thanksgivingish things from Whole Foods (twice baked potatoes? Why not!), so we just got enough for one meal and we didn’t have any leftovers. I was feeling pretty good about not having days worth of mashed potatoes or pie in the fridge, but then I made brownies. Sugary, buttery super rich Mexican chocolate brownies. Ugh, you guys, no more brownies. Or sweet potatoes. Or stuffing. No! More! Can we just talk about salads and ice water this week? The good thing about holiday over-indulgence is that when it’s all over, I feel more motivated to eat healthy. There’s nothing like a night spent regretting eating that extra Thanksgiving brownie (and topping it with gelato–oh yeah, that happened) to help get you back on track, right? So here’s a recipe that’s light and healthyCitrus Sesame Kale. And it’s also easy, because after Thanksgiving, I bet you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking either. […]

Vegan Baked Fried Rice

November 9 2018 Oh My Veggies 

FINALLY! “Fried” rice you can love without the self-loathing! Although baked fried rice takes longer than fried fried rice, it’s not any more work–in fact, it’s probably a little bit less. And you end up with that perfect fried rice texture and taste in a healthier package!

Recipe | Cauliflower and Chickpea Coconut Curry

November 5 2018 Oh My Veggies 

The nice thing about moving from the frigid Midwest to the South is that you can gloat to all your family and friends back home about the weather when fall starts. “Oh, it snowed there today? That’s nice. It’s 70 here.” (Yes, I am a terrible person.) But a week or two ago, when I saw people posting pictures of the first snow of the year on Facebook, I felt a little bit jealous. Could it really be? Do I miss snow?! The last winter we spent in Wisconsin, I pretty much had a mental break over the weather. I worked on the University of Wisconsin campus and I took the bus to work, which meant that I had to walk several blocks to my building everyday in the wee early hours of the morning. And those wee early hours were cold! The wind and the snow and the sub-zero temperatures would make my face ache and by the time I got to the office, my toes would always be numb no matter how many pairs of socks I layered on. I was done! Done with winter! But now I feel a little nostalgic for it. Maybe not for the […]

It’s easy to prepare in advance, and makes a perfect lunch. Simple and fast to make, the longer you let this salad sit in the fridge the tastier it will be.

Vegan Pumpkin Mug Brownie

October 22 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I had been obsessed with the Instructables eggless mug brownie for a few weeks, but with two tablespoons of oil in each serving, I just had to break up with it. After seeing a recipe for 2-Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies on Cookies & Cups, I wondered if maybe I could shave some calories off the Instructables brownie by using pumpkin instead of oil. Well, it took a few tries. The first time, I tried to make the pumpkin mug brownie even healthier by cutting the flour and sugar too. This did not work! It tasted really good, but as my husband so kindly put it, “That literally looks like poop.” (Except he didn’t say poop. But this is a family-friendly blog!) Back to the drawing board. I found that I couldn’t stray too far from the original if I wanted this to work out. So I didn’t. There are still 4 tablespoons of flour in this pumpkin mug brownie and 4 tablespoons of sugar. This may be vegan and oil-free, but it’s not healthy! It’s healthier. Without all the oil, it’s a little bit less rich than the original. But the richness is replaced with pumpkiny-ness. (Sure that’s a word! Sure […]

Is Agave Vegetarian? The Truth about the Popular Sugar Substitute

October 14 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Most vegetarians with a sweet tooth constantly search for the next vegetarian-friendly sweetener to add to their diet. Different sugar substitutes are perfectly suitable for vegetarian consumption, and agave syrup is among the most popular ones. It has found its way into a lot of vegetarian and vegan recipes, but some might still ask the question is agave vegetarian? Simply put, agave is vegetarian and its syrup is an excellent sugar substitute for vegetarians and vegans alike. However, there might be more to it than meets the eye, so it’s worth it to get a better understanding of agave. How to Define Vegetarian According to the Vegetarian Society, a vegetarian is a person whose diet consists of grains, legumes, fruits, vegetables, and other plant-based products. Some vegetarians might include dairy products or even eggs, but meat is--of course--out of the question. Following the same plant-friendly line, it should be easy to connect the dots. Agave is a plant and the juice that is extracted from it cant be an animal-based product. Therefore, if anybody asks you, “Is agave vegetarian?” your answer should be simple and straightforward--yes it is. Beyond this simple answer, it pays to delve a little deeper and […]

Crispy Tofu Sandwiches with Ginger Peanut Sauce

October 12 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I have a thing for magazines. People always say that print is dead and that the internet has replaced magazines and newspapers. Well, clearly these people do not know me. Because I will take a print magazine over the internet any day. There’s something about magazines that gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. It’s probably because I grew up reading magazines. My grandma subscribed to just about every publication under the sun–Cosmopolitan, Allure, Good Housekeeping, Lucky. But my favorite were the tabloids. Once a week, my grandparents would drop off a big shopping bag full of old magazines for my mom to read and I’d immediately rifle through them, pull out The National Enquirer, and bring it up to my room. I was quite possibly the only third grader who knew all about Jessica Hahn or that Kitty Dukakis was drinking rubbing alcohol before her stint at Betty Ford. And when I grew up, it was kind of fitting that I was a periodicals librarian. For a while, at least. Although I still love tabloids, most of my magazine subscriptions are food-related now. If it’s a magazine and it involves food, you can bet I probably get it delivered […]

Grilled Vegetables and Halloumi Cheese Salad

October 10 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I dont know if you have ever tasted it, but grilled halloumi is absolutely delicious. The flavor remains fresh and delicate with crispy edge. Even alone its great! When added to another dish, like in this recipe, the dish is completely changed--and it only takes a few minutes! Halloumi is an off-white cheese, generally in a rectangular shape and is characterized by a fold in the center. Originally from Cyprus, halloumi has a firm texture, even in cooking--the opposite of mozzarella--and made from sheep’s milk or cow’s milk. It is very unique. Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Servings: 2 Ingredients 2 cups salad of your choice 3 tablespoons of olive oil 1 onion 1 red pepper 1 cup of white mushroom 3 cloves of garlic Herbs of Provence 250gr of halloumi 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar Preparation Cut the onion and pepper into thin slices and sauté them in a skillet in olive oil. Chop the garlic and add them to the onion. Season with herbs of Provence. Cut the Halloumi block into 5 slices to obtain small scallops. Cook in a non-stick skillet until you obtain a smooth and soft texture. Add the salad to a plate, […]

Recipe: Mediterranean-Style Rotini with Toasted Garlic Panko

October 8 2018 Oh My Veggies 

When I saw the recipe for Fusilli with Caramelized Spring Onions and White Wine sitting in my “Recipes to Make” folder (an actual folder, mind you, not one on the computer–I am old school like that), I thought I’d add it to my meal plan because I had everything on hand for it except the onions. When I went to write up my meal plan post, I noticed that the recipe had pretty mediocre reviews online, with readers commenting that the dish was bland and flavorless. Oh, what to do! I had already done my shopping for the week, so it was too late to make something else. Instead, I decided to change the recipe–I added everything I could find in the pantry to give this pasta dish a big boost in flavor. I could have gone the easy route and doused this with massive amounts of cheese, but I opted to add ingredients that pack a lot of flavor into a small amount of calories and fat, making this Mediterranean-Style Rotini recipe both delicious and healthy.

Penne with Cheesy Sauce

October 6 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Provolone is a cheese originally from southern Italy, though it is now also produced in the northern regions of Italy. Made from cow’s milk, this semi-hard cheese comes in various shapes and sizes thanks to the plasticity of its dough. Provolone brings a gourmet touch to many dishes. This Penne with cheese sauce is creamy, tasty, very easy, fast, helps you empty your fridge, and its nutritious too! Ingredients 2 tbsp. butter 1 chopped onion 2 tbsp. flour 2 cups milk 1 1/­2 cups Provolone cheese, grated 3 tbsp. tomato paste 1 tsp. fresh basil, chopped 2 cups of penne pasta Preparation Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, then fry the onion until tender. Stir in the flour. Gradually add the milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is bubbling and thickening. Remove from heat. Add the cheese and stir until melted. Add tomato paste and basil. Warm up if necessary, but avoid boiling. Mix the sauce with the cooked pasta. Garnish with basil and more grated provolone if desired.

Ginger Orange Cranberry Sauce

November 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Recipe by me, photos by Rikki Snyder. I know this is very uncool of me, but I love canned cranberry sauce. Love it! When Thanksgiving is over and it’s on clearance, I always buy a few cans. I love the satisfying PLLLLOP! it makes as it comes out of the can and I love how it stands up on its own and how you can carve it up into slices, just like a turkey. It is a thing of beauty, cranberry sauce is. But just because I enjoy the canned stuff, doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate homemade cranberry sauce too. It’s kind of like apples and oranges, though. Two different things! And I love them for different reasons! Now, if you haven’t made your own cranberry sauce before, you might be thinking that it’s really complicated and not something you’d be able to do in your own kitchen. That’s what I used to think, anyway. But cranberry sauce is one of those magical things that seems like it should be really difficult, but it’s way easier than you’d think. Seriously, guys, if you have the skillset required to open up a can of soup and heat it on the stove, […]

Brussel Sprout, Tempeh & Soba Noodle Skillet

October 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Every fall I seem to latch onto a different seasonal ingredient to obsess over. Two years ago, it was sweet potatoes. Last year, it was winter squash. I think this fall, it’s going to be Brussels sprouts. I have so many ideas for them and I want to post them all. Brussels sprouts! Everyday! Every hour! Every minute! While everyone else is enjoying pumpkin and apples, I’ll be over in my corner with a bowl of delicious Brussels sprouts. And I won’t share them either! I wanted to do some kind of Brussels sprout stir fry and I remembered a recipe I pinned a while back from In Pursuit of More–a 15 Minute Brussels Sprout & Tempeh Stir Fry. I built upon that combination, adapting the stir fry sauce (which doubles as a marinade for the tempeh) and adding soba noodles at the end. It’s a one-bowl meal, which is always my favorite kinds of meal because who really wants to cook 2-3 things for dinner?! Roasting will always be my favorite way of cooking Brussels sprouts, but making them in a skillet is a close second. They’ll still get a little bit caramelized and the bitterness that so many […]

Recipe | Pineapple Jerk Tofu

October 18 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I don’t know about you, but nothing says autumn to me like a good pineapple recipe! Alright, maybe not, but living in North Carolina, it’s not like pineapple is ever an ingredient that’s in season here. While I do my best to eat local, there are some things that I’m just not willing to go without, like pineapple and bananas. Lately I’ve been very into adapting meat recipes into meatless ones–it’s a good way to mix things up a little bit. This recipe is an adaptation of a pork chop recipe I found in Everyday Food. Back in Madison, there was a restaurant that sold amazing jerk tofu, so as soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I’d try to make it with tofu instead. I had tried making jerk tofu on my own before and it just never wowed me–when I used pre-made jerk mixes, it always ended up being far too spicy, losing all the other flavors in the process, and when I tried making my own jerk seasoning, it wasn’t quite right either. While the pineapple jerk marinade in this recipe might not be authentic, the heat from the pepper and the flavor of allspice will […]

Soft & Chewy Spiced Apple Rings

October 11 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Is there a secret to coring apples? Please tell me that there is and I’m doing it wrong. I have an apple corer and I can never get it to go in through the stem and out through the bottom–it always goes out slightly to the side of the bottom and then I have to core my apples twice. And twice-cored apples are not as nice looking as once-cored apples. I made apple chips for Henry Happened last fall and I decided to revisit that idea, but with the addition of chai spices--cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and just a pinch of cloves. Instead of baking the apples until they were crispy, I baked them until they were soft and chewy. Erin from Texanerin Baking posted chewy apple chips last year and I wanted to see if I could make my recipe chewy too. Because the only descriptor I like more than spiced is chewy. Chewy is never not good! Yes, I said never not! Apple rings and chips are really simple to make at home. While it’s nice to have a dehydrator for these sorts of things, you don’t need one--an oven set at a low temperature works too. When you […]

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

September 30 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Yes, I am jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. I couldn’t resist doing a pumpkin recipe (it is fall after all) and if you do a sweet pumpkin recipe, you have to add pumpkin pie spice, right? This kind of reminds me of the time I accidentally wore the school colors on spirit day when I was in high school and I had to spend the whole day explaining to everyone that no, I didn’t have school spirit, and that the navy blue t-shirt I was wearing was just a coincidence. “Hey Kiersten, do we have a quiz today in biology?” “I DIDN’T MEAN TO WEAR THIS SHIRT TODAY! IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! I HATE THIS SCHOOL!” That was the worst day. Sometimes I throw things together just to eat, not really intending to blog about it; this is one of those recipes. I bought an adorable little pie pumpkin and made puree with it for another recipe and had just a little bit left, so I added a little almond butter and maple syrup, folded in oats and raisins and pepitas, put in a little sprinkle-sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and rolled the mixture into balls. Random! But they […]

Recipe | Cocoa Nib & Pomegranate Overnight Oats

September 20 2019 Oh My Veggies 

For a long time, I didn’t know that pomegranates were edible. I thought they were for decoration. My mom used to have a jar filled with little dried pomegranates underneath the coffee table in the living room and when I was little, I liked to empty them out onto the carpet and shake them to hear the seeds inside. Many years later, when I was in college, a friend of mine mentioned eating pomegranates. “Wait, what?! You can eat those?!” I wasn’t completely convinced. Eventually I tried pomegranates for myself and I came to love them, even though they’re a complete pain to prepare. My husband doesn’t think it’s worth the effort, but I do–I get excited about pomegranate season and I always feel bummed when it’s over and I know I’m going to have to wait until next fall to have them again. With pomegranates in season now, I thought I’d try adding them to my overnight oats for breakfast. Lately when I make overnight oats, I’ve been using an equal amount of fruit and oats. It helps me feel like I’ve eaten more–because let’s face it, 1/­­2 cup of oats is nothing. Nothing! So I added 1/­­2 cup […]

Roasted Pesto Potato Hash

September 13 2019 Oh My Veggies 

We love to roast things. Although it may take longer than other ways to cook vegetables, but the caramelization makes it totally worth it in the end. Everything tastes better after it’s been roasted! Along with brussel sprouts and cauliflower, potatoes are one of our favorite vegetables to roast. We love it when they get all crispy and browned on the outside. While all they really need is just a pinch of fresh pepper and sea salt, we added some pesto (you can use this frozen pesto recipe!) to make an Italian-inspired Roasted Pesto Potato Hash recipe. Okay, fine--so maybe roasted potato hash isn’t a thing. Or, at least it wasn’t until we just invented. And a lot of people have trouble getting them to turn out right in a skillet (although blanching them first is a good idea!). Roasting, on the other hand, is pretty much impossible to mess up. And it requires a lot less attention too. We’ve made this recipe a few times and while it’s great as an easy side dish, it also works as a main dish--just stir in some cubed tempeh about halfway through the cooking time and add an extra tablespoon or two of pesto at the end.

Recipe | Spicy Cantaloupe Cucumber Salad

September 2 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I wasn’t going to post this recipe, but since it’s the end of the summer, it’s kind of our last opportunity to get locally grown cantaloupe and cucumbers. So why not stretch out summer a little bit longer and make fruit salad? I wasn’t sure how this recipe would turn out, to be honest. It sounded like a mishmash of flavors and I couldn’t imagine how it would taste. Since I have so many Hungarian black peppers and mint leaves to use, I thought I’d take a risk and try it anyway. I’m glad I did–it’s so different and it makes a refreshing, light side for a heavier meal. Of course, it helps that I managed to pick out the perfect cantaloupe to use in this–any recipe involving melon is only as good as the fruit you use! Last summer, a vendor at the farmers market taught me how to tell which melons were ripe and which ones weren’t and I’m getting good at it now. (The secret, in case you were wondering, is not thumping the side, but smelling the blossom-end. You might look like a crazy sniffing all the cantaloupes at the supermarket, but it works. Really!) Print […]

Cherry Lambic Brownies (Brownies Made With Beer!)

August 26 2019 Oh My Veggies 

These are those kind of brownies. The kind of brownies where you eat one and swear off chocolate for the rest of the year and vow to eat salad (and salad alone!) for the next week. But then you sneak one for breakfast the next morning. And maybe one for lunch too. The kind of brownies that are so rich and fudgy, you have to eat them with a spoon. The kind of brownies that incite arguments over who gets the last one. (Yeah, that happened.) I realize that Cherry Lambic Brownies aren’t exactly why you read Oh My Veggies, but I had this idea floating around in my head ever since I made cupcakes with raspberry lambic earlier this year. I loved the hint of fruit the lambic added to those chocolate cupcakes and I wanted to experiment with using it in more baked goods. So I added “cherry lambic brownies” to my big list of recipes to make and it sat there for several months. I found myself putting off making them because rich, decadent desserts tend not to do well on my blog. However! I’m a big believer in the power of the daily occasional brownie. And […]

Vegetable Bites

August 21 2019 Oh My Veggies 

These 3 combinations of Vegetable Bites are super simple and super tasty. Serve them with sour cream.    

Edamame Burgers with Grilled Pineapple & Crispy Green Onions

August 16 2019 Oh My Veggies 

A few years ago, I thought it was a good idea to go to school full-time while working full-time as a librarian and almost full-time doing contract work for a search engine. (In case you now think I live in an alternate universe with 36 hour days, you should know that both my classes and my second job were online.) I just wanted work experience! I was in a competitive field! Also, if you have two full-time jobs, if you lose one, guess what? YOU STILL HAVE A JOB! While the schedule was just a wee bit of a drag, the bonus was that having 3 full-time incomes in a household with no children and very few expenses meant that our fun money budget was huge. So when I checked airfares to Osaka on a whim one day and found a crazy good deal, we booked ourselves some tickets and went to Japan. Japan! Best trip ever! I have loved Japan for as long as I can remember. I think it’s because I love absurdity and the people of Japan have a deep appreciation for the absurd. Japan is a place where you can buy vegetable juice-flavored Kit Kats. It’s […]

Sneaky Green Apple Fruit Leather

August 12 2019 Oh My Veggies 

You know how sometimes you have a really good idea, but you sort of know it just won’t work out? I kind of felt that way about this Sneaky Green Apple Fruit Leather. I loved the idea of sneaking a little bit of spinach into apple fruit leather, but it just seemed like the idea was too good to actually work in practice. So I made it... ...and it was good! Like really, objectively good. Not good for fruit leather with spinach in it, but good good. You don’t taste the spinach at all. To make sure it wasn’t a fluke, I made it again and it was still tasty. I wanted to be absolutely sure it worked out, so I tried it a third time. By the time I got to the fourth trial, I knew the recipe worked, I just wanted more fruit leather. Not only does this fruit leather recipe sneak in some spinach, it’s also sugar-free. A lot of fruit leather recipes will have you add a ton of sugar. But if you start with flavorful, sweet apples, you don’t need any sugar at all. You can bake the fruit leather on parchment paper, cut it […]

Recipe | Sweet Potato Mug Cake

August 9 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Even though our next vacation is months away, I’m already in planning mode. Where are we going? What should we do there? Where should we stay? I totally have the travel bug right now. This is pretty much me in a nutshell–I’m a planner. I get ahead of myself. It’s kind of my thing. When I was graduating college, I wasn’t as excited as everyone else was because I was focused on grad school. We’ve lived in this house for two years, and I’m already looking at real estate listings for the next house. People sometimes take this as me never being happy with things, but it’s really just that I like having something to look forward to. It’s like with desserts. No matter how much you’re enjoying your meal, you still anticipate dessert. I always need a little something sweet after dinner–usually it’s just a piece of dark chocolate or something small like that, but sometimes if I have a light dinner, I have room for something more. But not too much–I don’t want a big slice of cake and I don’t want to do all the work involved with making a batch of brownies or cookies. That’s why […]

Miso-Marinated Grilled Summer Squash

August 5 2019 Oh My Veggies 

In general, I don’t try to recreate restaurant recipes. While there have been a few that turned out well (like my Thai pizza), most of the time they don’t seem to measure up. It’s easier to just go to the restaurant in question and have the real thing. Unfortunately, one of my favorite vegetable dishes was one we had in Japan, at a completely tourist-y ninja-themed restaurant. (Really, I don’t understand why there aren’t more restaurants with ninjas as waiters. Also, the ninjas did magic tricks.) It was so simple, only consisting of a miso-based sauce and steamed vegetables. But it was so good. My first few attempts at replicating the sauce resulted in salty, barely edible disasters. But this time I got it right! I realized that my version was missing the sweetness of the original and that I needed to add sugar. I used different vegetables than we had in Japan (summer squash, since it’s that time of year) and grilled them instead of steaming them. This grilled summer squash recipe couldn’t be easier, so it’s a perfect way to use fresh zucchini from the garden.

How to Make Frozen Pesto Cubes

August 2 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Making pesto with the remainder of the summer’s basil has become a tradition in our household. I love pesto because of its versatility–not only is it great with pasta, but it makes a tasty topping for pizza and can even be used as a sandwich spread. Freezing pesto is the perfect way to enjoy a little bit of summer for at least a few months into fall and it’s a good timesaver when you need a quick dinner. My basil was determined to start flowering, no matter how many times I clipped the buds off of it, so I decided last weekend it was time to make our annual ginormous batch of pesto. In the past, I’ve frozen it in bags, Tupperware, and ice cube trays. The ice cube trays worked well, but they didn’t really match the serving size we’d typically use. This year I did something different and used mini muffin tins. I’ve used regular sized muffin tins for freezing sauces and broth and the mini muffin tins hold just the right amount of pesto for one or two people (depending on what you’re using it for, of course!). Start by putting your pesto into the mini muffin […]

Recipe | Green Beans with Lemon-Almond Pesto

July 29 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I don’t know what’s up with my green beans this summer. The plants themselves are looking nice and lush (despite a few brown leaves here and there), but they’re not producing many beans. This has been my harvest so far: Sad, right? Whenever I attempt to grow beans, I end up having to buy more beans to supplement what I grow. Because dinner with 5 beans to split between my husband and me as a side dish? That’s just not going to work. So when I made this Green Beans with Lemon-Almond Pesto recipe, I used my 5 beautiful, perfect, delicious heirloom beans and then bought the rest from the farmers market. The beans from the farmers market were delicious, but they definitely weren’t as pretty. Green beans and almonds are a classic combination, so I thought I’d try making a pesto with almonds to put my own twist on Green Bean Almondine. Green Bean Almondine is one of those dishes that I find myself loving sometimes and loathing others. When it’s done right, it’s so good! When it’s done wrong, those soggy little slivers of almonds bring absolutely nothing to the table. Unlike the soggy buffet version of Green […]

Recipe | Peach Dutch Baby

July 26 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Head cheese. Liverwurst. Clotted cream. The names of these foods are anything but appetizing. But clearly the most disturbingly named food in existence, even worse than head cheese, is the Dutch Baby. It’s not so much the name itself–I mean, Dutch Baby sounds kind of cute, right? But then when working on a post for your food blog about said Dutch Baby, you find yourself writing (and then scratching out and rewriting) sentences like, “I always cook Dutch Babies in a cast iron skillet” and “Some people like to top Dutch Babies with butter and sugar, but I prefer fruit.” Oh, the horror! So when my husband and I were grocery shopping for the week and he asked me what we were having for dinner that night, I was a little bit self-conscious about telling him in public. I looked around to make sure no one was within earshot and then I whispered, “A Peach Dutch Baby.” Which, you know, I’m sure wasn’t suspicious at all! Not one bit! Because really, when you’re trying not to arouse suspicion, the best thing to do is dart your eyes back and forth and say things under your breath. The first time I […]

Recipe | Caramelized Onion & Eggplant Puff Pastry Tart

July 22 2019 Oh My Veggies 

There are a few ingredients that improve just about any dish you add them to: Truffle Oil Caramelized Onions Olives Roasted Red Peppers Basil Unfortunately, this Caramelized Onion & Eggplant Puff Pastry Tart does not have truffle oil. (Although I suppose if you really wanted to, you could add some. I mean, it’s a free country, right? Do what you want!) But! It does have caramelized onions, olives, roasted red peppers, and basil. It’s a veritable quadrifecta of deliciousness. After I made this Leek & Olive Tart from Rikki Snyder’s food photography blog, I had a leftover puff pastry sheet sitting in the freezer, just begging to be made into something awesome. My little finger eggplants have been producing like crazy, so I roasted two of those, along with a small rosa blanca eggplant from the farmers market, as a topping. Everything else was simply what I had in the refrigerator that needed to be used. With a thrown-together recipe like this, there’s usually a high failure rate (at least in my kitchen, there is), so I piled on the toppings and crossed my fingers. I try hard to make most of my recipes really easy, but this one does […]

Bourbon Mango Pulled Summer Squash Sandwiches

July 19 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Most of my worst ideas come to me in the middle of the night. The cats will wake me up or something else will startle me out of my sleep, and suddenly I’m thinking that I should really just quit my job and sell macaroons for a living. Or that it would be a good idea to pepper my thesis with hair metal lyrics just to see if my advisor notices. (Yes, these are real ideas that I had--and in the hours between midnight and 7am, somehow those ideas seemed really good.) The idea for this recipe popped into my head during one of these times--vegetarian pulled pork sandwiches! When I woke up the next morning, I had to figure out a way to execute this idea. I thought that seitan would be a good substitute for pork, but I realized that they don’t sell it at our local grocery store and it hardly seemed worth it to drive to Raleigh just for that. So somehow the seitan became julienned summer squash. I found a recipe for Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork that piqued my interest, so I adapted that using yellow squash and zucchini instead of pork to make Bourbon Mango […]

Chipotle Black Bean Quinoa Burgers with Sweet Corn Relish

July 15 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The only reason I ever remember my wedding anniversary is because my Grandma sends Chris and me a card in the mail every year. (Thank you, Grandma!) And whenever someone asks me how long I’ve been married, I freak out a little bit and have to do some quick math in my head. Did we get married in 2005? Or was it 2006? (It was 2006.) What year is it now? What’s 13 minus 6? OH NO WHAT’S 13 MINUS 6??? I really should just throw out a random number because how would they know, right? Also, I really should buy some flashcards and practice basic math. So today is our anniversary! We used to use it as an excuse to get an expensive dinner, but now we don’t really do anything for it. And that’s okay! With both of us! I’m lucky to have married someone who is as into anniversaries and birthdays and holidays as I am. Which is to say, not at all. Anniversaries just seem kind of arbitrary to me. Like, hey, the Earth has rotated around the sun 7 times since we got married--here’s a box of chocolates! I’m not really into grand gestures, you […]

How to Make Your Own Tofu

July 12 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Do you ever think about how different foods came to be? Who discovered that we can eat potatoes? How did someone come up with the idea to grind wheat into flour and make bread with it? I’m always asking myself these questions and I also spend a lot of time wondering how foods are made too. Like tofu! How do you make tofu? I always knew tofu was made from curdled soybeans, but how do you curdle soybeans? And how did someone decide that this was a thing that could be done?! There are a lot of tofu making kits for sale out there, but I decided to forego the kits and try to do it myself. A little bit of Googling turned up pages and pages of tofu making tutorials, but I decided to go with one on NPR’s Kitchen Window. Making my own tofu! It seemed doable! My tutorial is slightly adapted from that one, based on my own tofu making experience. The tofu making process starts with dried soybeans--1 1/­­2 cups, to be exact. I bought mine in the bulk section at Whole Foods. Whenever I use soy in a recipe, it’s inevitable that I get a […]

Recipe | Basil & Sun-Dried Tomato Crackers

July 8 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Making your own crackers seems a lot more complicated than it actually is. But this works in your favor, because when you make these delicious Basil & Sun-Dried Tomato Crackers, people are going to be really impressed. You don’t have to tell them that it was easy; just let them be in awe of your culinary skills! I had wanted to make crackers for a while, but in my head, it was some epic process like canning or making caramels (which I’ve done, and it was most definitely an epic process). Crackers, however, are not an epic process at all. They’re a little bit fussy, but they’re fairly easy to make and quick too. That said, it took me more than one try to get these right. So now you can benefit from my mistakes! Here’s what I learned: Roll these out thin. Thin. Because if you don’t, they won’t be crispy and crackery. They’ll be sad and soggy. No one wants to eat soggy crackers! Except my husband, who ate my first batch of soggy, too-thick crackers. “They’re a good starting point,” he said. Which is supportive husband speak for, “These are barely edible.” Take the time to chop […]

4 Simple Watermelon Side Dish Ideas

July 5 2019 Oh My Veggies 

It’s almost the end of summer. Watermelon is cheap and at its peak of deliciousness, so when you see a ginormous watermelon at the farmers market for $4, you buy it. And then you realize that you have a LOT of watermelon on your hands. What are you going to do with it? (Oh, and by you, I mean me. That was me that bought the ginormous watermelon.) Well, here’s your answer: 4 simple watermelon side dish ideas. They’re healthy and easy too! Kalamata Olives & Basil Okay, I know most people would be inclined to add feta to this. Well, I don’t like feta! Toss some cubed watermelon with fresh basil leaves and some halved kalamata olives. If you’re a fan of sweet-and-salty, you will love this salad. Mint & Lime Juice Squeeze fresh lime juice over watermelon slices and sprinkle with coarsely chopped mint leaves and a few pinches of sea salt. Watermelon slices never tasted so good! Cilantro & Jalapeno The perfect side dish for taco night! Seed and mince a jalapeno and chop some cilantro, then toss it with cubed watermelon and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with a dash of salt (I […]

Basil-Infused Lychee Lime Ice Pops

July 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The first time I had lychee, I ordered it on a whim from a Thai restaurant. This was back when my husband and I were first dating–I had never had Thai food and I think I was trying to impress him by ordering something neither of us had heard of before. But wow, was I glad I ordered it–it was so sweet and fragrant, almost like candy. Lychee is now one of my favorite flavors, but unfortunately, it’s rare outside of Asian markets and restaurants. I had an extra lime from another recipe this week, so I used the juice from that in the popsicles too. And since my basil plants seem to be growing several inches a day, I made a basil-flavored syrup to mix in as well. These turned out exactly like I thought they would–a perfect mix of sweetness from the lychees and the tartness of lime juice, with a hint of fresh basil.

Recipe | Herbed French Lentil Salad

June 28 2019 Oh My Veggies 

When I was a senior in college, I had to take a summer of intensive French classes before I could graduate. When it came to languages, I was always a dabbler and I could never find one and stick with it, which is how I ended up in the predicament of spending 6 hours a day, 5 days a week taking French for an entire summer. They say that immersion is the best way to learn a language but I say that that’s a lie. Because I remember nothing. Nothing! Our instructor was of the opinion that it was most useful to learn “real world” words instead of the basics and that this must be learned by immersion. So the days in my French class were spent conversing about diseases, the pros and cons of nuclear power, and the United Nations. And to this day, one of the few French phrases I remember is “j’ai l’hepatite.” Between the whole immersion thing and the oppressive summer heat (in a windowless classroom!), the entire summer began to take on a surreal feeling. And so now whenever the weather starts getting hot and humid, I remember that summer of French immersion. A completely […]

Recipe | Spicy Mango Pizza with Black Beans & Zucchini

June 24 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Before we get to the Spicy Mango Pizza, I have something really important to share with you. Are you ready? I’m writing this post while sitting at a desk. And fine, maybe that doesn’t sound all that important to you, but it is to me. Because for the year and a half that I’ve been blogging, I’ve been writing most of my posts while sitting on the couch. And, more often than not, I’m half-watching episodes of Real Housewives or Mob Wives while writing. (“Oh,” you’re saying to yourself, “that explains a lot.”) But I’ve decided I need to be more professional with my blog. I need to have set hours for it. I need to have a place for it. I need to treat it like a business, not as a hobby. And not because I’m raking in big bucks as a blogger (ha!), but because when I treat it as a hobby, it has a way of encroaching on my free time. If I treat it like a business, my hope is that I’ll be able to set better boundaries with myself. (Although I neglected to mention I’m sitting at my desk writing this on a Saturday afternoon–well, […]

How to Roast Summer Vegetables

June 17 2019 Oh My Veggies 

We’ve listed the most common summer veggies here along with instructions for preparation and approximate cooking times. You can season these vegetables with salt and pepper alone, or use our suggested additions to fancy things up a little. All of these veggies should be roasted on rimmed baking sheets. We like to coat them with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil from a mister too because sometimes vegetables have a tendency to stick even after being tossed in olive oil. Most additions can be added either before or after the vegetables are done roasting, although garlic is usually best when added before, while tapenades, basil, cilantro, parsley and marinara sauce are best added after. Summer Squash (Zucchini, Crookneck Squash, etc.) Start by: Trimming ends, cutting into thick slices and tossing with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook at: 400 degrees for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking time. Try adding: Pesto and pine nuts, fresh herbs, garlic, balsamic vinegar, sun-dried tomato tapenade. Tomatoes Start by: Cutting into 1-inch pieces and tossing with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cook at: 375 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking time. Try adding: A few pinches of brown sugar, garlic, capers, kalamata olives, […]

How to Make Cashew Mayonnaise

June 7 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I feel like I need to clarify the title of this post a little bit. Maybe it would be better if I called it “How I Make Cashew Mayo.” I don’t make cashew mayo the traditional way, so this isn’t THE definitive cashew mayo recipe. It’s MY cashew mayo recipe. It’s a little bit different from others because: 1) A lot of cashew mayo recipes are raw. Mine is not. 2) My recipe isn’t raw because I use vegetable broth in it. This adds a little boost of extra flavor. 3) I don’t add anything to sweeten my cashew mayo. See? It’s different. And I can’t promise you that it tastes exactly like real mayo (because it was the 80s when I last had real mayo), but it makes a mean sandwich spread and it’s great on crackers or as a dip for veggies too. Are you ready to get started? Here’s how to make cashew mayo! Put one cup of raw cashews in a bowl and cover them with water. Let them sit for a few hours–about two to four is a good amount. Drain and rinse the cashews, then pop them in your blender or food processor with […]

Roasted Chia Cauliflower

June 3 2019 Oh My Veggies 

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a little bit of a chia kick lately. I put those crazy little seeds on and in just about everything. Did you know that Aztec warriors ate chia seeds before battle? If they can fuel warriors in battle, surely they can fuel me while I stand around in the kitchen doing the robot while waiting for onions to caramelize. (Onions take a long time to caramelize!) My favorite way to use chia seeds is to throw them in a smoothie or juice, but you can do so many other things with them too. Use them as an egg substitute! Put them in homemade granola bars! Make chia pudding! Stir them into oatmeal for breakfast! And they also make a nice crunchy topping to this Roasted Chia Cauliflower. I make roasted cauliflower all the time, so when I saw this recipe from Health Warrior, I knew it was kismet. Chia and cauliflower? Together? This recipe was made for me. Cauliflower is healthy, but chia seeds add an extra boost of nutrition. As a vegetarian, I don’t eat fish, so I have to get my Omega-3 fatty acids from non-fishy sources; I used to […]

Recipe | Orange Cardamom Chocolate Mousse (Dairy-Free!)

May 31 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Sometimes I think I have a touch of synesthesia. Example? Whenever I cook or bake with cardamom, I think of fuzzy argyle sweaters. I was quite sure this was another symptom of that pesky synesthesia. Next thing you know, I’ll start tasting numbers, right? Or hearing rainbows. (I bet they sound like ABBA!) But then I realized that the reason I associate cardamom with argyle sweaters is because cardamom sounds a lot like cardigan. (Suddenly this post got a lot less interesting, huh?) Still, there’s something very warm and fuzzy about cardamom. Maybe because it’s often used in chai or in Scandinavian breads. It’s one of those strong flavors that people tend to love or hate, but I’ve always loved it. Pairing it with orange is fairly standard, but after trying it in chocolate gelato, I became enamored with the chocolatecardamom combination–that’s what inspired this Orange Cardamom Chocolate Mousse. I used my Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse recipe as a starting point and added fresh orange juice and zest, as well as a heaping teaspoon full of cardamom. It’s enough of the spice to add a little warm and fuzzy to this vegan chocolate mousse without adding too much.

Mini Vegetable Lasagnas

May 27 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I like small things. Tiny dogs? Love them. Baby corn? Yes please. Pygmy goats? I’ll take 12. For a while, I even collected those little erasers that are shaped like food for no other reason than the fact that they were small, exact replicas of delicious things. So obviously, when I find a recipe that takes a big dish and makes it bite-sized, I’m all over it. After seeing Petite Lasagnas that were made in muffin tins on Pinterest, I decided to make a vegetarian version. Simply subbing out the ground turkey for veggies seemed like a pretty lazy adaptation to me, so I also used pesto instead of a tomato-based sauce. (Sidenote: I could put pesto on anything. Seriously. Here’s a bit of advice: grow basil this summer, make pesto with it, and freeze it so you can use it year-round. You’ll thank me later.) So are Mini Vegetable Lasagnas as good as regular-sized lasagnas? Heck yeah. In fact, I think I may prefer the mini version because the wonton wrappers peek out over the edge of the muffin tins and get nice and crispy. And I love crispy things almost as much as I love small things. The […]

20 Secret Ingredient Cauliflower Recipes

March 29 2019 Oh My Veggies 

You know the old saying… if life gives you cauliflower, make pizza crust. What, that’s not a saying?! Well, I propose right here and now that it should be. We all know cauliflower is a pretty great vegetable, sure. But do you know just how versatile it is? Did you know you can take a head of the stuff and make, yes, a pizza crust? Or a lightened-up version of mashed potatoes? How about hummus? Rice?! Popcorn! Buffalo wings!! This incredible cruciferous vegetable isn’t only low in carbohydrates (perfect for those eating lower-carb diets); it’s utterly packed with nutrients. So the fact that you can transform it into a myriad of other things--usually as as substitute for something that would have been far more calorie-dense--it’s a very good thing. Here are 20 brilliant cauliflower recipes from around the web that touch upon the infinite possibilities for this one remarkable vegetable. Recipe Title: Buffalo Cauliflower Bites Description: Spicy cauliflower “wings” dipped in cool ranch sauce? Yes, please. McKel at Nutrition Stripped shares this recipe for game day or any day.

Recipe | Pesto Pizza with Roasted Red Peppers, Cremini Mushrooms & Asparagus

March 15 2019 Oh My Veggies 

It’s no secret: I’m excited about spring. Super excited! While the weather and sunshine and longer days are nice, it’s the gardening that I’m really psyched about. Last summer was our first as homeowners and I was finally able to grow a variety of herbs to cook with mere steps from my kitchen. Oh yes, the community garden plot I had was nice, but it’s just not the same as being able to open the door, grab some basil, and start cooking. I grew two Genovese basil plants last year; I was worried they wouldn’t be enough, but they ended up being more than I could possibly use. (This year, I’ve planted two Genovese basil plants again and also holy basil and lemon basil–so get ready for a lot of basil recipes soon!) As I usually do at the end of summer, I decided to make a big batch of pesto and freeze it in mini muffin tins to use through the winter. I can’t count how many hectic nights that my frozen pesto saved the day. Working late? Thaw some pesto and throw it into pasta! Got everything you need to make pizza except the sauce? Use pesto instead! […]

Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls with Cilantro-Mint Chutney

March 8 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I think red lentils might just be the least appetizing food you can cook. Well, visually, at least. When you cook split lentils, they fall apart--kind of like split peas in split pea soup. I spent a lot of time trying to think of ways to make curried red lentils look attractive, but sometimes you just have to let curried red lentils be curried red lentils. You do you, lentils! You do you. So they’re not pretty, but I assure you, these Curried Red Lentil & Quinoa Bowls are delicious. I had the curried red lentil recipe in my pocket for a while and I just wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I tried serving it over cauliflower steaks, but that was kind of weird. Serving it over quinoa is much better! It also makes this recipe a great source of protein--the quinoa has 6 grams per serving and the lentils have 10. Because I used Madras curry powder in this recipe instead of sweet, the lentils are a little bit spicy. You can add a dollop of Greek yogurt to your bowl to cool it down a bit, or make a batch of Cilantro-Mint Chutney. I love […]

Whole Wheat Rotini with Broccolini and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

February 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This meal will take you 25 minutes to make, start to finish. Prep time included. I felt the need to state that right off the bat. 25 minutes! For a delicious home cooked dinner! One thing I never hear people say is, “You know what I need? I need some complicated recipes that take a lot of time to make. And they should have really long lists of ingredients too!” No, everyone wants easy. Not Taco Bell easy, but who wants to come home from work and spend 2 hours cooking dinner? No one! I’m a food blogger and cooking is kind of my job and even I don’t like spending too much time on one meal. So this recipe is simple. And there aren’t many ingredients either. (Woo hoo!) Although I made this with whole wheat rotini, you can use any kind of pasta you have on hand. If you don’t want to buy broccolini, use a crown of broccoli instead. You can sub out the pine nuts with walnuts or almonds. This recipe is agreeable like that. Are you looking for more 30 minute or less recipes? Well hey, I just happen to have some! Here are 10 […]

Cauliflower Soup

February 20 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This delicious cream of cauliflower soup will delight the taste buds of even your pickiest child. Eating cauliflower contributes a significant amount of fiber to your diet and is a great food for dieters because it causes a feeling of satiety.

Recipe | Broccoli Quinoa Quesadillas + A Cast Iron Cookware Primer

February 15 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Back when I first started cooking, I didn’t know that there was such a thing as non-non-stick cookware. (Stick cookware?) Non-stick cookware made for easy clean-up! It let you use less oil and butter in your cooking! It was pretty much the best invention ever, right? And then suddenly you started hearing bad things about non-stick cookware. Although they say it’s perfectly safe to use as long as it’s not scratched, my cookware was constantly scratching. It made me kind of uneasy, so I decided to switch out my non-stick pots and pans for cast iron. Since cast iron tends to be a little bit pricier, it’s been an ongoing process, one that began before I even started blogging. As my old pots and pans wore out, I replaced them with new cast iron versions, usually scouring discount stores and the Le Creuset outlet for good deals. I’ve finally replaced my last few pieces with cast iron and I’ve learned a few things along the way: Cast Iron Is Expensive (In the Short Term) The biggest hurdle for me in switching to cast iron was the cost. But if you’re replacing your non-stick cookware every few years like I was, […]

Salted Caramel Granola Bars

February 11 2019 Oh My Veggies 

After I finished grad school and had to start repaying my student loans, I decided to set up a deferred payment plan where I’d pay a smaller monthly payment for a few years, and then the payments balloon later. Obviously by then, I’d be rolling in cash from my swanky library job and I’d have a dollar sign shaped pool in my backyard and wash my hair with Fiji water, so this sounded like a good idea to me at the time. However, now that I’m a month away from the increased payments, it sounds like a terrible idea and it threw me into another I’m-paying-for-a-degree-I-don’t-use-wah-wah pity party. Because as much as I want to be one of those people who gives the finger to the past and goes through life with a t-shirt emblazoned with the words NO REGRETZ, I am a person with regretz and that degree has been one of them. (Sidenote: If I ever start a clothing line, I’m definitely calling it NO REGRETZ. In addition to t-shirts, I will sell bandanas with eagles on them.) Usually these pity parties end when I realize that practically no one uses their degrees and it’s okay! But this […]

Tempeh Tacos from Betty Goes Vegan

February 8 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I get migraines. Crazy migraines. Migraines that make me see strange glowing orbs. Migraines that make me leave hair salons in ambulances. But the worst thing about my migraines is that they cause me to have weird aversions to certain foods. So, for example, when I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch and got a migraine a few hours later, suddenly I could no longer stomach PB&Js. The very thought of them would make me feel sick to my stomach. Usually I get over these aversions after a few months, but then there was the time I got a migraine after eating tacos–oh, it was bad. And I wasn’t able to eat tacos for a full year. The Year Without Tacos will go down as one of the worst years ever. Because along with veggie burgers and pasta, tacos were part of the trifecta of easy go-to meals in our household. I felt a little bit lost without taco night. Tacos are fast! They’re delicious! And putting them together is kind of fun too, right? It was a happy day when I finally found myself thinking, “Hey, you know what? I feel like tacos for dinner! I […]

Jalape?o Cheddar Crackers

February 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, I feel like I should post something snacky. I’d probably be a bad food blogger if I didn’t, right? But I have to confess, I won’t be watching the Super Bowl this weekend. Football is the worst, you guys. The worst! There are some sports that I kind of understand. Like soccer. Kick the ball into the net. Easy! But with football, there’s just too much going on. There’s running and numbers on the field and a weird shaped ball. Confusing! When we had to play flag football in gym class, the teacher never even bothered to explain how to play because I guess, like breathing and sleeping, everyone just innately knows. So I’d just run in whichever direction seemed appropriate and when it looked like someone wanted to throw the ball to me, I’d shake my head, wave my arms, and mouth the word “NOOOOOOO!!!!” And if I did, for some reason, end up with the ball, usually I’d throw it to whomever was closest to me, whether they were on my team or not. Because I did not want the ball. And then everyone would yell at me. Oh, they […]

Recipe | Cornmeal Crepes with Mandarin Cranberry Sauce

January 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Can you tell that I’m on a cranberry kick? After making cranberry sauce for the first time, I became completely enamored with using fresh cranberries in my cooking. I love the way they pop open and I love their ruby-red color and I love how they get all thick and gelatinous after cooking for a while. Since cranberries won’t be in season for much longer, I figured I better make the most of it and come up with another cranberry recipe. And since the grocery store had bags full of gorgeous looking Mandarin oranges on sale when I was hunting for my cranberries, I thought I’d throw some of those in too. The cornmeal crepe part of this recipe is from Vegetarian Times’ Sweet Cornmeal Crepes with Fresh Blueberries. I made them over the summer when blueberries were cheap and plentiful and I loved them because they were the first crepes I made that didn’t tear or burn or turn out to be a disaster in some way or another. So when I decided to do a cranberry sauce for crepes, this seemed like the perfect crepe recipe to use. Unfortunately, I didn’t have as much luck this time as […]

French Onion Soup Sandwiches

January 21 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I have been agonizing over what to call this recipe. Agonizing to an embarrassing degree. I swear, sometimes I spend more time coming up with names for recipes than I do developing the recipes themselves. I feel like the name of this recipe is confusing. Is it a soup? Is it a sandwich? Well, it’s kind of both. It’s French Onion Soup with a twist. You see, in traditional French Onion Soup, you make the soup and float a piece of crusty bread topped with cheese on top of it. And it’s delicious! This recipe is a little bit different, though. The bread, onions, and cheese are in grilled panini form. The (faux) beef broth is served on the side and you dip your sandwich into it. As you eat your panini, bits of onion, cheese, and bread fall into the broth so when you’ve finished off your sandwich, you have a little bowl of French Onion bliss waiting for you. So is it a little confusing? Maybe. But it’s really good, I promise! My husband, who isn’t a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, was really surprised how much these captured the flavor of French Onion Soup. As for […]

Recipe | Thai Red Curry Soup

January 18 2019 Oh My Veggies 

It’s Soup Week on Oh My Veggies! Now, before you get all impressed, you should know that the reason this week is Soup Week is because I’ve spent the past two weeks sick and I haven’t wanted to eat much other than soup. So this is less about me being an amazing, creative food blogger and more about me being having a raging cold. But anyway, Soup Week! Yay! My favorite local Thai restaurant serves the most delicious Thai Red Curry Soup with their lunch specials. Like most lunch special soups, there’s not much to it–broth and usually 4-5 cubes of tofu, about the same number of sliced mushrooms, and a scant teaspoon of thinly sliced scallions. But that’s okay, because the best part is the broth anyway. It’s a little bit spicy, a tiny bit sweet, and incredibly fragrant from the combination of coconut milk and red curry paste. I’ve made a soup similar to this with summer veggies and green curry paste in the past, and I thought I could switch out the green curry with red and I’d get something pretty close to the Thai restaurant Red Curry Soup. It was really close, but the missing piece […]

Stovetop Pesto Mac (+ Everything I Know About Making Mac & Cheese)

January 14 2019 Oh My Veggies 

January is a funny month. We’re all motivated to lose weight and get healthy and eat light foods. But the weather is gray and cold and makes us want casseroles and mac & cheese and hot chocolate. I’ve posted some lighter recipes in the past two weeks, but now it’s time for Pesto Mac. Cheesy, carb-y Pesto Mac. Yes, the same Pesto Mac I put in my What I Ate This Week last month. Except it’s not the same, because that version was a disaster. I didn’t measure my ingredients when I was making the sauce and it turned out way way WAAAAY too thick. Oops! But now I’ve perfected the recipe. And between working on this Pesto Mac and another mac & cheese recipe for a project I’m doing, I’ve learned a lot about making macaroni & cheese. Like: Add veggies to make your mac & cheese go further. Broccoli is probably the most obvious vegetable to add. (They even sell boxed mac & cheese with little bits of dehydrated broccoli!) I also really like adding mushrooms, greens (like kale or spinach), roasted jalapenos or poblanos, cauliflower... anything that goes with the cheese you’re using, really. I mentioned this […]

How To Make Banana Fruit Leather (without a dehydrator!)

January 11 2019 Oh My Veggies 

So I’ve made Raspberry Peach Fruit Leather. And then I made Mango Fruit Roll-Ups. But I’m not going to rest on my delicious fruit snack laurels! No! I’ve been floating around ideas and trying to think of something that would work during winter and then it hit me: banana fruit leather. So I made it and it was good. And then I made it again and it was still good. Good enough to share, in fact. Here’s how to make banana fruit leather without a dehydrator: Before you start, you will need 4 ripe bananas. You’ll need to pre-heat your oven to 175?F and spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. (Don’t spray on too much–you don’t want oily banana fruit leather.) Peel your bananas and cut them into large chunks. Now you need to puree your bananas. I like using an immersion blender, but a food processor or regular blender is fine. Make sure there are no large banana pieces. It needs to be smooth! Try not to eat the puree. It’s delicious! It’s almost like banana pudding. (Okay, not really. But I try to convince myself it is.) Pour the puree onto your greased baking sheet. Hopefully […]

15 Basic Recipes Every Vegetarian Should Master

January 7 2019 Oh My Veggies 

As a long-time vegetarian, there are some recipes that I find myself going back to again and again. I love making new things, but there’s something to be said for those tried-and-true meal ideas too. Because it’s January and a lot of people are cutting down on (or giving up!) meat for the New Year, I’ve decided to compile these dishes here. These are 15 basic recipes that I think every vegetarian should master; you don’t have to master these exact recipes, but if you have a go-to burrito or veggie burger recipe under your belt, your life (well, at least your life at dinnertime) will be a lot easier! Recipe Title: Grilled Cheese Description: I stopped eating meat when I was 12, so there were a lot of grilled cheese lunches back then. While it’s hard to go wrong with the classic version, adding greens or veggies ups the nutrition a little bit, like in this Kale, Grilled Garlic, and Cheddar Panini from Panini Happy.

Recipe | Chewy Chocolate Strawberry Cookies

December 31 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Does your grocery store put out samples? The ones I go to do and, really, it’s pretty ingenious on their part because I always end up buying things I wouldn’t have otherwise. I am just that impressionable. And this is how I ended up getting dried strawberries. I tried them and they were so yummy and chewy and strawberry-y that I had to get them. Even though they were $7 and look like rabbit poop. I usually don’t buy a lot of dried fruit because, although it’s healthy, it’s pretty dense when it comes to calories. A serving size is usually a quarter cup, which is meager. Meager! So what do I do with dried fruit? I bake with it. I really wouldn’t have bought these super expensive rabbit-poop looking dried strawberries if I hadn’t had the idea to use them in cookies. And not just any cookies–chewy chocolate strawberry cookies! (Yes, if you read my blog regularly, you might recognize most of this recipe from my Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies–hush! It’s not plagiarism if you’re stealing from yourself!) With the chocolate chips and strawberries, these are kind of reminiscent of chocolate covered strawberries. If you can’t find chewy […]

Recipe | Cranberry Chipotle Ketchup

December 28 2018 Oh My Veggies 

For the longest time, I used to pester my husband about the fact that he didn’t like ketchup. I just couldn’t wrap my mind around this. We would go out to breakfast at IHOP and while I would slather my hash browns in ketchup, he would pour maple syrup on them. Which, in my very humble opinion, is just not right. When we’d have fries, he would use barbecue or steak sauce on them–anything but ketchup. I nagged him and nagged him to give ketchup another shot and when he finally did, he admitted it wasn’t that bad. But he still wasn’t crazy about it and he still preferred maple syrup on his hash browns. When I saw a recipe for cranberry ketchup in Cooking Light, I decided that homemade ketchup would be the best way to get my husband fully onboard the ketchup train. Rather than using the ground red pepper suggested by the original recipe, I opted to add chipotle chiles instead. I keep these on hand in the freezer–when we buy a can of them, we puree them and freeze for future use. It’s a great way to add a little heat to whatever you’re cooking. Anyway, […]

Recipe | Peppermint Double Chocolate Ganache Cakes

December 24 2018 Oh My Veggies 

And so the chocolate peppermint recipes continue! Mostly because I still have candy canes. Although I love peppermint candy, I’m not really into the whole candy cane thing. They’re a little bit unwieldy and messy to eat. So the only thing I can really do with candy canes is bake yummy holiday treats with them. My hands are tied! I have no choice in the matter! I’ve posted some relatively light holiday desserts this month, but now it’s time for something decadent. We all need to indulge a little during this time of year, right? (Note that I didn’t say over-indulge.) The good thing about these mini-cakes is that they’re portion-controlled–and believe me, with two kinds of chocolate ganache involved, portion-control is a good thing. One is enough for anyone! (Oh, and if you have leftovers, these freeze quite nicely.) I wanted to make mini-cakes instead of one big ginormous cake–I figured I could either make a sheet cake and cut smaller circles out of it or use cupcake tins. I went the cupcake tin route and turned the finished cupcakes upside down (after shaving a little cake off the top so they’d stand flat). If you want to make […]

Baked Banana Wontons + (Optional!) Coconut Caramel Sauce

December 21 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Okay, so maybe desserts are the last thing you want to think about right now. I know! I totally get that! But one year I had banana wontons on New Year’s Eve and now I always associate them with the New Year. So this is my New Year’s recipe, posted a little bit in advance. The best thing about these wontons, aside from how flipping easy they are to make, is that it’s the kind of dessert that seems like it would be high in calories, but it’s totally not. Each wonton is only about 30 calories (depending on the brand of wonton wrappers you use), so a serving of four is completely doable as a dessert or snack. I used to make these by spraying them with my oil mister and while that works out well, I’ve found that brushing them with melted coconut oil is even better–they are thisclose to having the same crispy texture as deep-fried wontons. But since this is a New Year’s post, healthy banana wontons would be a wee bit disappointing, right? So if you want to go all out, I’ve included a vegan caramel sauce recipe too–a coconut caramel sauce recipe, to be […]

99 DIY Food Gifts for the Holidays

December 17 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I think it is safe to say we have officially entered last minute territory when it comes to Christmas gifts. If you still have shopping to do, you better do it soon! And oh, it will be awful. There will be lines. Screaming children. The things you need to buy will be sold out. But there is another way! You can make your own gifts. Everyone loves a homemade gift! (Well, maybe kids don’t. If you give your kids jars of Meyer lemon marmalade for Christmas, it will probably be something they tell their therapist about 20 years from now. Don’t give your kids homemade marmalade for Christmas.) And guess what? I have 100 DIY food gifts for the holidays in this post. One hundred! Starting with my own food gift idea, a Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix in a jar. This mix is easy to make, reasonably healthy, and the addition of mini chocolate chips makes it a crowd pleaser too. Pack it in mason jars, print out the labels below, and package it up with a bottle of maple syrup. And then instead of going to the mall, you can chill out at home in your pajamas […]

Recipe | Grasshopper Brownie Cookies

December 14 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I always make a few batches of cookies for the holidays, but it’s been several years since I did a lot of holiday baking. You know, the three-day baking marathons that leave you with flour in your hair and flecks of buttery sugar stuck to your face–that kind of holiday baking. But I am doing it this year! The last time I did this kind of holiday baking, I decided to make healthy cookies. Shockingly, healthy cookies do not go over very well with a crowd. So I am going all out this time. I left the grocery store last weekend with bags full of butter and chocolate chips of every variety. No whole wheat flour, no applesauce instead of butter. Not this year! And the first recipe I tackled is one I came up with myself: Grasshopper Brownie Cookies. I guess candy cane would be a wee bit more traditional for this time of year, but grasshopper brownies are one of my favorite desserts and I had the idea to make a sandwich cookie out of them. Chocolate ganache and minty cream are sandwiched between two chewy brownie cookies. I made them small because these little guys are rich. […]

Lasagna Style Soup

December 8 2018 Oh My Veggies 

This soup is surprising! When you take a perfect bite with a little bit of everything, it’s magic. It really tastes like lasagna, but it’s made in 30 minutes with a single saucepan. The lazy cook will be delighted!      

Pumpkin Bread

December 5 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Do you have pumpkin puree leftover from Thanksgiving that you don’t know what to do with? Or are you looking for a new recipe for homemade bread? Well, search no more! Here is a delicious recipe for pumpkin bread. This recipe makes two loaves. You can freeze one for another week! VARIATIONS: You can add nuts, dried fruits, etc. I also believe that the recipe would make good muffins.

Leftover Cranberry Sauce Bread

November 30 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Back in the day, when I was all anti-establishment and down with the man, I would have never found myself partaking in Black Friday madness. But this year, I’m counting down the days to Black Friday because we need a new couch. Couches are expensive! Sales on couches are good! Do you know what four cats can do to a cheap couch in three years? Terrible things. Oh, the horror. (Cats: This is why we can’t have nice things.) So yes, I’m doing the Black Friday thing this year. 20-year-old me would want to kick 32-year-old me in the shin. One thing I won’t be doing the day after Thanksgiving is eating leftovers because, since it’s just the two of us for Thanksgiving this year, I decided not to make a big dinner. Sad, right?! Now that we live several states away, it seems silly to go home for Thanksgiving and then go back a month later for Christmas, so we’re opting for Christmas this year. But if you do happen to have Thanksgiving dinner leftovers, save some cranberry sauce to make this Leftover Cranberry Sauce Bread. Yes! You put the sauce in the bread! It has to be the […]

9 Ways to Use Leftover Cranberry Sauce

November 23 2018 Oh My Veggies 

As I mentioned yesterday, this was the first Thanksgiving that I cooked myself. And it was my first time making cranberry sauce. And we have lots of cranberry sauce left over. LOTS! So much, in fact, that I’ve (desperately) started trying to think of different ways to use leftover cranberry sauce. Sure, we could just eat it as is, but how much fun is that? (Answer: Not very.) Cranberry-Glazed Brussels Sprouts: Roast some brussels sprouts and toss with a little bit of your leftover cranberry sauce. We had this over the weekend and it was a nice, easy side. (I’ve also done this with roasted winter squash too.) Thanksgiving Leftover Sandwiches: Why not, right? And no, this doesn’t have to be a gross, sloppy mess. Check out this Turkey Cranberry Panini on Following in My Shoes. I had planned on making these with any leftover Field Roast that we had, but we didn’t end up having any left. Next year! Cranberry Flavored Cream Cheese: Mix a little cranberry sauce into some plain cream cheese for a deliciously different bagel topping. Cranberry Muffins: Stir some cranberry sauce into your favorite muffin or quick bread recipe. Cranberry Orange Popsicles: Ever since buying […]

Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes

November 2 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Wow, it’s November! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was complaining about summer ending. And now we’re smack-dab in the middle of fall. Fall! When everything is pumpkin flavored! Fall! When The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on TV! Fall! When sweet potatoes are plentiful! So I decided to come up with a delicious sweet potato recipe for you. I thought to myself, “Hey! It’s fall! And I haven’t posted any sweet potato recipes yet this season!” Then while I was editing the photos for this post, I realized: oh, I did sweet potato gnocchi last week. I did do a sweet potato recipe this season. Oops. I guess since it was pasta, somehow it didn’t feel like a sweet potato recipe. Or something. But that’s okay, right? Because we can all use easy side dish ideas and that’s exactly what this Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe is–easy! The potatoes are roasted in the oven until they’re tender and then glazed with an apple cider reduction. Simple! Back on the subject of fall, are you following my Fall Recipes board on Pinterest? I’m collecting all kinds of tasty fall foods there.

Roasted Poblano Mac & Cheese

October 29 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Every year that I grow peppers, the same thing happens. The whole summer will pass by and I’ll get one or two peppers from each plant. I’m disappointed, wondering what I did wrong, and I vow that I will never (never!) grow peppers again. Then fall starts and suddenly my pepper plants shoot up a foot or so and dozens of peppers appear overnight. Or, at least it seems like it’s overnight. Why does this happen?! Aren’t peppers supposed to love hot weather? Mine seem to prefer brisk mornings and rainy gray afternoons. After spending some time in the garden last weekend, I realized that I had a problem on my hands–what the heck was I going to do with all the poblano peppers that were ready to harvest at the same time? I have a lot of sweet peppers too, but those are a little bit easier. With hot peppers, you can’t throw them all in a stir-fry or pile them onto a pizza. (Well, maybe you can, but I can’t! I like spicy, but not that spicy.) My favorite way to use poblano peppers is in my Fresh Corn, Poblano, & Cheddar Pizza, but with corn out of […]

Best Vegetarian Arthritis Supplements for Effective Treatment and Pain Relief

October 25 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Arthritis is a difficult and debilitating condition. This joint disease comes in many forms and each of them puts significant limitations on your lifestyle. There are numerous medical treatments with varying level of effectiveness, but making some changes in your dietary habits can also help. A common piece of advice for vegetarians with arthritis is to start increasing their omega-3 fatty acid intake. Unfortunately, simple tweaks in your diet can only take you so far when you are battling arthritis. If you dont want to take medication that can have an adverse effect on your other organs, the best treatment would be to take natural vegetarian arthritis supplements. Here you will learn more about some of the best vegetarian arthritis supplements that can truly help your ailment. 1. SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine) Similar to some other arthritis supplements, SAM-e is an effective pain reliever that can also reduce joint inflammation characteristic to arthritis. Besides the analgesic properties, this supplement also promotes cartilage growth to relieve other arthritis symptoms. On top of that, SAM-e affects serotonin, a neurotransmitter in your brain, to reduce the amount of pain you feel. SAM-e is a non-steroidal supplement, which means that there are fewer negative effects and […]

If I Eat Vegetarian, How Do I Get Enough Protein? The Question Bothering Novice Vegetarians

October 23 2018 Oh My Veggies 

A healthy vegetarian diet, or any other diet for that matter, is impossible without a sufficient protein intake. To get a more complete picture, you should imagine proteins as building blocks of your organism. These macronutrients are responsible for most of the chemicals in your body as well as muscle, skin, bones, and blood. There is a common, albeit wrong, belief that a vegetarian diet doesnt provide a sufficient amount of protein. If nutritionists got a dollar for each if I eat vegetarian, how do I get enough protein? they hear, they would all be super-rich. Getting enough protein on a vegetarian diet is surprisingly simple, if you follow certain rules. The choice to become a vegetarian actually entails that you have to be well-informed about the foods you consume. If I Eat Vegetarian, How Do I Get Enough Protein? - When Enough Is Enough As a vegetarian, you probably already know that proteins grow on other living things besides those that run, fly, or lazily lounge around their sty. Some vegetarian foods are an equally efficient source of protein as the above-mentioned creatures. However, this still doesnt bring you any closer to knowing how to get the right quantities […]

Best Vegetarian Junk Food for Daring Plant Eaters

October 21 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Believe it or not, vegetarians are not immune to the juicy tastes of junk food. To be perfectly honest, vegetarian junk food is not as junk as you might think. It still contains a bunch of healthy nutrients, even though the look, texture, and--in some cases--taste resemble classic junk foods. Vegetarian junk food options are almost endless. They range from famous restaurants’ takes on vegetarian and vegan junk food staples to simple junk food snack recipes. The following write-up showcases some of the best vegetarian junk food dishes. They are easy to prepare at home, so you can quench your vegetarian junk food craving. Vegetarian Junk Food Sandwiches In terms of the best vegetarian junk food, there is hardly a more palatable thing than a veggie junk food sandwich.

The perfect veggie junk food sandwich does require some preparation and skill, but it is well worth the effort. 1.     Vegan McDonalds McChicken Sandwich This vegan junk food sandwich has the looks and taste that might fool even non-vegans. It features succulent chicken flavored seitan that you can prepare […]

Best Vegetarian Indian Cookbooks You Should Have in Your Kitchen

October 18 2018 Oh My Veggies 

As an aspiring vegetarian, you should definitely get ahold of an Indian cookbook or two. Indian cuisine is a treasure trove of delicious healthy recipes that might become a staple in your plant-based diet. This cuisine utilizes bunches of plants, herbs, and spices to create mouth-watering vegetarian goodies. Indian vegetarian cookbooks can also teach you some new cooking techniques. You will probably start mixing odd ingredients to create unique Indian-style flavors. However, choosing the right Indian cookbook that perfectly fits your vegetarian preferences might be tricky. To make your choice a bit easier, take a look at this list of the best vegetarian Indian cookbooks that can add just the right spice to your diet.

However, the introduction is not the only personal touch this cookbook has to offer. Mira Manek provides a unique set of recipes that feature her own take on traditional Indian staples. Each recipe is a vegetarian interpretation of […]

Vegan Gingerbread Pear Bundt Cake

October 15 2018 Oh My Veggies 

I wanted to create a cake that embraced the season and its rich flavors. Bold gingerbread, sweet pears, a little caramel sauce swizzled over the top to bring it all together. Something that would work well as a mid-morning snack cake alongside a perfectly brewed cup of coffee, but would also be well-received by all as a special occasion dessert (Thanksgiving, anyone?) Initially, I thought of a few go-to vegan baking ingredients. Flax eggs. Almond milk. Coconut oil. But then my mind turned to one of my very favorite cakes, a cake I enjoyed often growing up, a cake I had no idea was vegan until a few years ago. It’s a rich, moist chocolate number called Wacky Cake, though growing up, we called it Crazy Cake – and we always enjoyed it with a dollop of whipped cream. So much for being vegan. Wacky Cake was reportedly created during the Great Depression, when staples such as eggs and milk were in short supply. Enterprising cooks dreamed up a cake that utilized vinegar and baking soda instead, creating bubbles that help the cake to rise. I thought I’d borrow that naturally vegan cake’s formula for this gingerbread version. Other than omitting the […]

Cashew Butter vs Peanut Butter – Is There a Winner to This Battle?

October 11 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Vegans and vegetarians simply love their nut butter, and they have been debating long and hard about which nut butter is the healthiest and most nutritious. The central debate usually revolves around cashew butter vs peanut butter--though almond butter sometimes pops up in the debate as well. It might be disappointing to realize that there is no actual winner of the cashew butter vs peanut butter battle. Each tasty spread comes with its fair share of unique benefits and nutritional properties. The choice ultimately boils down to your own personal preference. Peanut Butter For most Americans--vegan and non-vegan--peanut butter is much more than just a tasty spread to put on their sandwich. Since Dr. Kellogg introduced the first batch more than a century ago, peanut butter has risen to the status of a cultural food icon. On top of that, the National Peanut Board helps ensure that there is plenty of healthy, allergy-free peanut butter for future generations. Peanut Butter Nutrition Unfortunately, the popularity of peanut butter has little to do with its nutritional benefits. Still, it is worth stressing that peanut butter can be very beneficial for your plant-based eating habits. Peanut butter mostly consists of healthy unsaturated fats […]

How Can You Eat Raw Corn? Simple Tips and Tricks

October 9 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Corn, also known as maize, is one of the main staples of any diet--vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore. This ubiquitous cereal also comes with more than a few nutritional benefits. It is rich in potassium, iron, and contains 3,27g of protein per 100g. On top of that, corn is an excellent source of energy because 100g of kernels have about 86 calories. These characteristics make it an excellent choice for a vegan or vegetarian diet. There are many different ways to consume corn. It can be cooked, grilled, or ground into tasty tortilla flour. However, if youre wondering if you can eat raw corn, here are some things you should know. Can You Eat Raw Corn? The Simple Answer If you grew up in the city, eating raw corn might not have been something you enjoyed as a kid. Yet those who grew up on a farm, especially in the Midwest, know well how tasty corn straight from the cob can be. However, you dont just go out and munch down on any corn that you can find. There are two varieties of corn and one is perfectly suitable for eating raw while the other isnt. Sweet corn is the variety […]

Everything You Should Know About Building Muscle While Eating Vegetarian

October 7 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually possible to gain muscle while on a vegetarian diet. Many people still think that the supposed lack of protein in a vegetarian diet does not allow for sufficient results in the gym. However, this is nowhere near the truth. Whether youre eating meat or not, building muscle involves a strict dietary regimen designed to optimize the quantities of the nutrients your body requires. Your diet should include minerals, fiber, vitamins, and of course protein to ensure you get the desired results. Similar to non-vegetarian fitness enthusiasts, vegetarian gym goers need to follow a prescribed dietary regime and have a good understanding of their body. If you optimize your diet, you shouldnt have any problems building muscle while eating vegetarian. Types of Vegetarians There are four different vegetarian categories and each involves different dietary habits. It is important to have a clear understanding of which category you belong to because it can largely determine your gym diet. All vegetarians can generally be classified into the following four categories: Pescetarians, who eat fish Lacto-ovo vegetarians, who eat dairy and eggs Lacto-vegetarians, who eat dairy products Vegans, who are solely on a plant-based diet There is […]

A Guide to Fall Produce

October 5 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Apples and pumpkins get all the love and attention every fall, but what about beets? And turnips? Won’t someone please think about the turnips?! If you’re not sure what’s in season during fall, this guide is for you–not only does it list what’s in season, it also contains buying and storage tips, cooking suggestions, and recipe ideas. It’s everything you need to conquer fall cooking! And if you still need more ideas, click on over to my list of fall-inspired recipes from Oh My Veggies. Apples Peak Season: September-October Buying Tips: Apples should be firm, without blemishes or bruises. Storage: Store apples in a cool place or in your refrigerator. Because apples release gases that can cause other produce to overripen, they should be kept in a separate drawer in the fridge. Preparation & Cooking: The skin is the healthiest part of the apple, so keep them unpeeled when possible for the maximum benefit. Apples can be made into sauces, diced and added to salads, and baked into sweet treats like pies, muffins, and tarts. Different apples are better suited for different uses, so try to get the specific type of apple that your recipe calls for. Apples start browning […]

Best Vegetarian Restaurants - Denver

September 23 2018 Oh My Veggies 

Denver may be known for its game meat and deep fried Rocky Mountain oysters, but its culinary culture has a lot more to offer.

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos

September 21 2018 Oh My Veggies 

For better or worse (often for worse), I am an idea person. Not really in an inspiring, visionary type of way. More in a “Hey, I have an idea! I’m going to glue Japanese candy wrappers to a piece of cardboard and frame it!” kind of way. I’m less Steve Jobs, more lady on Hoarders who saves empty yogurt containers to make Christmas ornaments. I have ideas! Lots of ideas! For a while, I wanted to start a second blog, for desserts, called Oh My Pants. But then I realized that the fact that I don’t bake much might get in the way and really, I just wanted a blog called Oh My Pants. So then I came up with another idea. I’d start a blog called Oh My House. We’d buy a house (bonus points if it was a former crack house or brothel–hello, interesting backstory!), renovate it, decorate it, and blog about it. Oh sure, the domain might have been taken, but I had the house picked out and everything! Except that there are eleventy billion home reno blogs out there right now. And we can’t buy a new house 2 years after moving into this one. Also, […]
