Spring Berry Salad with Lemon Verbena Vinaigrette

June 1 2020 Oh My Veggies 

This light salad recipe is made with fresh spring berries and a lemon verbena vinaigrette. It’s the perfect way to use lemon verbena from the garden! All I Want is Salad We got back from Georgia on Monday night and I’m now ready for my next vacation. I think after you travel, you’re supposed to feel well-rested and satisfied, but traveling only makes me want to travel more. I spent most of the car ride home Googling hotels in Hawaii and the cost of airfare to the Florida Keys. So I guess I haven’t had my fill of travel this summer. But I did leave Georgia with my fill of fabulous desserts, courtesy of my Aunt Darlene. (You’re watching her on The American Baking Competition, right?!) She made mini-cheesecakes and gorgeous stenciled cookies and brownies topped with gold leaf for my cousin’s wedding. Oh, and there was cake too, of course. And then the next day, we got to eat the rejects--more cookies, more brownies, and orange blossom macarons. So! Much! Food! Bingeing on sweets is always the best motivation for getting back on track with my diet. When we were leaving Savannah, I told Chris that all I wanted […]

Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese with Baked BBQ Tofu

May 22 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Two years in a row, I have made my husband Noodles & Company mac & cheese rip-offs for his birthday. Last year, I did Truffle Mac, and this year, I did a vegetarian version of their BBQ Pork Mac & Cheese recipe. I don’t really know how this became a thing for us, but I guess it has. I don’t think anyone can beat us when it comes to nonsensical traditions to mark important occasions, which is okay with us, because mac & cheese is far superior to sappy greeting cards anyway. This item isn’t always on the Noodles & Company menu, but when it was, Chris and I were both intrigued. We wondered if they could sub out the pork for tofu, but neither of us wanted to be that person, so we didn’t ask. For months, I promised him I would try to make a meatless version at home. When tackling this recipe myself, I knew that I couldn’t just use any kind of tofu--it had to be baked! The last thing you want in your mac & cheese are soft cubes of tofu. Baked tofu has a firm, chewy texture because baking in the oven dries it […]

Sweet Potato Bibimbap

May 18 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Photos by Rikki Snyder Bibimbap! Have you heard of it? You will love it! What exactly is bibimbap? Its a traditional Korean dish which translates to mixed rice (bibi = mixed, bap = rice). A variety of sautéed, raw, and pickled vegetables are served on top of white rice with a raw or over-easy egg and sliced meat. I took the Make it Meatless approach to this bibimbap by substituting roasted sweet potato slices for the meat. Sweet potatoes for meat? Does that sound like a strange substitution? I assure you, it simply works! The sweet potatoes are filling, flavorful, and add life to the meal. One of my favorite parts about this dish is how much variety goes into the bowl. You can pick and choose your favorite vegetables, and create a combination of raw and cooked vegetables with a tasty sauce. I went with sautéed shiitake mushrooms and sweet potatoes, which I served with raw shredded carrot, eggs, pickled cucumbers (I used store-bought, but I’ve linked to a recipe in the ingredient list if you can’t find them!), kimchi, and a gingery chili garlic sauce drizzled over everything. These bowls are so flavorful and satisfying that it took only […]

Pesto Quinoa & White Bean Cakes with Roasted Tomatoes

May 15 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Now that I have basil growing in the garden again, I’m on a quest to use up my frozen pesto because I’ll be able to make it fresh whenever I want to. If making a big batch of pesto and freezing it for fall and winter marks the end of summer for me, then frantically trying to use up that pesto is a sure sign of spring. It happens every year, like clockwork. It’s a good thing this recipe took a few tries to get right--I think I used half of my pesto supply perfecting it. The first time I made it, I only used cannelini beans. It was not good. I’ve realized that I only like cannelini beans as a component of a dish, not as the main ingredient. White bean cakes with just white beans, pesto, panko, and egg were definitely meh. So then I used half the beans and more ingredients each subsequent trial. Cheese! Why not? A zucchini? Of course! And then quinoa. Sometimes less is more, but sometimes more is more. And this is a more is more recipe. But even with more, it’s still not a lot. If you make this, don’t skip the […]

Recipe | Mexican Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Recipe | Cinnamon Vanilla Cashew Milk

May 8 2020 Oh My Veggies 

If I only knew how easy it was to make my own non-dairy milks, I would have started doing it years ago. Why did it take me so long to discover this?! Okay, it’s still not as easy as picking up a carton of almond milk at the store. But it’s easier than I thought it would be. After learning about carrageenan, I decided that I wanted to avoid non-dairy milk made with it. This is not a lecture-y blog, so don’t take this as me telling you what you should or should not eat, but I decided that for me, I’d rather seek out products that don’t use carrageenan. There are plenty of carrageenan-free nut and soy milks out there, but I started to get curious about whether I could make my own. I started with my friend Kelly’s tutorial on how to make your own coconut milk. It was easy and delicious and I wanted to make more. MOOOORE! So then I tried making the cashew milk recipe that came with my Vitamix. I love almond milk, but I think I love cashew milk even more. (Side note: why do they not sell cashew milk in grocery stores?) […]

Recipe | Cauliflower Hummus Burgers with Mint Tzatziki

May 4 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I finally made some veggie burgers for the blog. But they’re not burger-y burgers. They’re hummus burgers. I wanted something with the flavors of hummus, in burger form. And because I like a little texture in my burgers, I didn’t want to use actual hummus. So instead, I smashed some chickpeas and cauliflower together with tahini, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. The first time I made this, I did it without the cauliflower and it just didn’t work out. The burgers needed a little more moisture, so I thought I’d experiment by adding steamed cauliflower the next time around. The cauliflower doesn’t take away from the hummus flavor, but it makes the burgers less crumbly and adds some veggie goodness to the patties. Chobani sent me some samples of their Greek yogurt (thanks, Chobani!), so I figured the appropriate topping for hummus burgers was tzatziki. Traditionally, dill is used in tzatziki sauce, but since my dill is pretty pathetic right now, I used mint instead. I’m not big on yogurt unless it’s in something and I feel the same way about tzatziki--it’s great on these burgers, but a little too much for me on its own. (But I guess […]

Recipe | Pesto-Roasted Veggie Sandwiches

May 1 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I never need an excuse to go to our local French bakery. I might go there to get something for a meal, but I won’t leave without a tarte tatin or eclair. The bakery is owned and operated by a French family, so the food and the accents really make you feel like you’re in Paris and not Wisconsin. (Oh, how I wish I was in Paris and not Wisconsin.) Anyway! In seeking new and different ways to use pesto, I wanted to do something sandwichy. Yes, it’s a word! Sandwichy! I bought a crusty loaf of sourdough bread from aforementioned bakery, and then yellow squash, zucchini, and portabella mushrooms from the grocery store. I had pesto, Parmesan cheese, and an onion on hand. Because roasting is pretty much my default way of preparing vegetables, I thought I’d marinate the veggies in a pesto and olive oil mixture and then throw them in the oven until they got all caramelized and delicious. If you prefer grilling your vegetables, that would work too, of course--I mean, basically the idea is to cook the vegetables before putting them on the sandwich, you know? These sandwiches are bound to become a weekend staple […]

April 20 2020 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 | Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette

April 13 2020 Oh My Veggies 

There are some things you shouldn’t say to a cook. You know what one of those things is? “Interesting…” That was what my husband said when I told him my idea for this recipe. “A Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette! Maybe with some walnuts, too, and a balsamic reduction. And Parmesan cheese!” I thought it was ingenious. I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with the idea, in fact. But my husband’s response? “Interesting...” “Interesting...” never means interesting. It’s not so much the word “interesting,” you see, it’s more that trailing off at the end: “Interestinnnggg.” Interesting is the polite way of saying, “What in Sam Hill are you thinking?” (Yes, Sam Hill. I’m an 80-year-old man, didn’t you know?) But brussel sprouts and grapes actually do go well together. A few months ago, I made a roasted brussel sprouts and grapes recipe from Whole Living and it was delicious. And, in general, brussel sprouts tend to go well with sweet flavors that offset their slight bitterness. So as I write this post, I feel like this Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette is one of those recipes that could be so weird that it’s a massive success, like […]

Recipe | Easy Baked Arancini

April 6 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Last Thursday I shared my Lemony Asparagus Risotto recipe with you and I promised that there was a part two coming soon. Well, guess what? It’s time for Lemony Asparagus Risotto Part 2: The Reckoning. (That sounds more ominous and vaguely threatening than delicious, huh?) Every risotto recipe I’ve ever made yielded a lot of risotto. A lot. Since it’s just my husband and me in our household, that means there’s always leftovers. But leftover risotto is kind of an abomination. It’s never as creamy as the first day you make it and it’s just kind of off and disappointing and even a little bit depressing. So here’s what you need to do when you have leftover risotto: you need to make baked arancini. Traditionally, arancini is fried in a skillet or deep-fryer. But risotto is a little on the heavy side, so adding even more fat from frying isn’t the best idea. Arancini is often stuffed with cheese too, but I’ve omitted this as well. That doesn’t mean this baked arancini is healthy, but it’s a little more virtuous than its deep-fried, cheese-stuffed counterpart. Done correctly, baked arancini has the same crunchy exterior and creamy interior as the fried […]

Spiced Sweet Potato Caramels

March 30 2020 Oh My Veggies 

You might see a lot of sweet potato recipes on my blog over the next month. I want to put a patio in our backyard, so I am determined (determined!) to win the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission’s No More Mallows Blogger Recipe Contest. So, having the eye of the tiger and determination and things like that, I decided to start things off big by making sweet potato caramels. When I did a Google search for “sweet potato caramels recipe,” all I found were a bunch of pages about Morinaga sweet potato caramels, which I happened to have bought when we were in Japan a few years ago. While they’re delicious, they’re not the buttery, gooey kind of caramels we’re used to in the US. They kind of have the texture of a Starburst with a very mild caramel flavor. I wanted to use sweet potatoes to make crazy decadent caramels. The kind that make you weak in the knees. Having never made caramels before, I figured it would take me a few tries to perfect them, but I surprised myself and got them right the first time by using the cooking instructions and proportions from this caramel recipe and […]

Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie

March 23 2020 Oh My Veggies 

The day after we got back to Raleigh last week, I woke up with tonsils so swollen, I could barely swallow water, a non-stop hacking cough and I sounded like Big Ang when I tried to talk. (Yes, I realize that exactly two of you get the Big Ang reference, but I’m okay with that.) I immediately picked up my iPhone and Googled to find out the symptoms of SARS and I was relieved to find out that I did not seem to have SARS. But then I realized that could only mean one thing: I must have consumption. So since I have consumption and all, this weekend seemed like a good opportunity to revisit this Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie recipe. I started working on it about a month and a half ago. You’d think a smoothie recipe would be pretty straight-forward, but for some reason it took me a lot of tries to get this one right. Seeing as my tonsils are about the size of golf balls right now, I wanted it to be a little bit thinner than I usually make my smoothies, so I decided to add fewer raspberries this time around. I think that was […]

Recipe | Apple Cinnamon & Quinoa Muffin Top Cookies

March 16 2020 Oh My Veggies 

When deciding on a name for these cookies, I was all excited thinking I had come up with something totally original--muffin top cookies! And then I did a search for the term and, sure enough, lots of people make muffin top cookies. But! I’m the only one that’s made Apple Cinnamon & Quinoa Muffin Top Cookies! So that’s something, right? This recipe is really a happy accident. I wanted to make a breakfast cookie that was low in calories and fairly substantive and healthy. I decided to put quinoa in the cookies, but I wasn’t sure how to go about doing it, so I adapted a recipe from Bon Appetit. One of the changes I made was to sub out white whole wheat flour for whole wheat pastry flour. In my mind, I couldn’t see much of a difference between the two–since I like whole wheat, I’ve never been one to buy the white wheat stuff. Well! It turns out that using pastry flour in cookies makes them cakey. I was expecting to open the oven and find chewy cookies waiting for me and instead, I had something that looked more like muffin tops. I resigned myself to buying the […]

Pomegranate Lime Chia Fresca Recipe

March 9 2020 Oh My Veggies 

If you’ve never seen chia drinks in stores, you’re probably giving me the side-eye right now. (Well, as much as you can give a blogger the side-eye--I can’t see it, but I know it’s happening!) But really, this is a thing! The first time I saw a bottle of juice with chia seeds in it, I assumed that: a) It would be disgusting. b) I would choke on it. c) It was hippie food. Maybe the last one is true, but it’s not disgusting and I didn’t choke on it. When hydrated, the outer layer of chia seeds becomes gelatinous. This gel-like coating means that chia seeds go down easy so no, this isn’t like drinking a glass full of poppy seeds. Chia drinks (also called chia fresca or iskiate) kind of have the consistency of softened Jello, a bonus for me, since I don’t eat Jello. And in a drink, the seeds don’t really impart a flavor because you’re not chewing on them, so you taste the flavor of the juice and nothing more. Chia seeds are little nutritional dynamos too--they’re high in Omega-3s, antioxidants, and fiber, and unlike other seeds, they don’t need to be ground in order […]

Spinach, Caramelized Onion & Roasted Pepper Open-Faced Sandwiches from Vegetable Literacy

March 2 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I can never, ever pass up the opportunity to make a recipe that involves caramelized onions. Are they a pain to make? Kind of. Do they take for-freaking-ever to cook down? Absolutely. But they are always worth it. When I was given a list of recipes from Deborah Madison’s Vegetable Literacy to chose from for this post, my eyes immediately went to the open-faced sandwiches topped with caramelized onions. There was no way these wouldn’t be delicious! The sweet onions and thick slices of roasted red pepper paired perfectly with the salty cheese and earthy spinach. And aside from the time it took to caramelize the onions, these sandwiches were easy to make too. This is why I love Deborah Madison’s cookbooks--they elevate vegetarian cooking beyond veggie lasagnas and burgers, but in a way that’s not intimidating to the average cook. Vegetable Literacy: Cooking and Gardening with Twelve Families from the Edible Plant Kingdom, with over 300 Deliciously Simple Recipes was released this week and I was lucky enough to get a copy to review. As a vegetarian (and a fan of Deborah Madison’s work in general), I appreciate this book for its inspired recipe ideas, but as a gardener, […]

Recipe | Baked Portabella Mushroom Taquitos

February 24 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Full disclosure: before coming up with this recipe, the only taquitos I’ve had were the frozen ones from Trader Joe’s. And I didn’t like them. I didn’t hate them either, but I was left feeling pretty meh about the idea of taquitos after that. I was going to do this recipe as tacos, but for some reason, I thought, “No, I’m going to do taquitos instead! Yes, mushroom taquitos! That’s the ticket!” After a little bit of Googling, I realized that taquitos were fried. Could they be baked instead? Yes! It is possible to bake taquitos! I found this out after some more Googling (what did we do before Google?!) and finding a recipe for Baked Chicken Taquitos on the Whole Foods website. I was a little bit put off by their method of soaking the tortillas in warm broth before filling them, so I skipped that and simply warmed the tortillas instead, which is what I do when I make enchiladas. Many times when you bake something instead of frying it, it really pales in comparison to the fried version. You try to convince yourself that it’s just as good, but y’all know those oven fries just aren’t the […]

Chopped Power Salad with Baked Tofu and Almond-Miso Dressing

February 17 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Last year I linked to a Maple-Miso Tofu recipe in one of my What I Ate This Week posts and shortly afterwards, the recipe disappeared from the internet. I have no idea why it was taken down, but I get people asking me once in a while if I happen to have a copy of it myself; sadly, I do not. I get asked about it enough that I figured I’d try to make my own version and post it here. Then I decided that what would make that Maple-Miso Tofu even better was to serve it in a bowl full of noodles. A noodle salad! With chewy baked tofu and maybe an almond-lime sauce, like the one I made a few months ago to dip crispy baked zucchini in. I was all set to make that, until I decided what would be even better would be to make the Maple-Miso Tofu and then serve it in a regular, non-noodle salad with an almond-lime dressing. But right before I went to the kitchen to start cooking, I realized making two separate sauces would be a little bit of a pain, so I merged the two together and made an Almond-Miso […]

Recipe | Whole Wheat Chocolate Cherry Muffins

February 10 2020 Oh My Veggies 

When I was little, I had a thing for chocolate-covered cherries. I’m not really sure how it started--no one in my family likes chocolate cherries, so I don’t know where I first had them. But man, did I love them. While my brothers would get Sour Patch Kids or Razzles (remember Razzles?!) from the candy store, I’d go to the fancypants chocolate counter and get two or three chocolate cherries. Now that I’m older, I can’t stand those chocolate cherry cordials. They are waaaay too sweet for my tastes. But I still love that combination of chocolate and cherries--just not all the added sugar. Since I’m on a bit of a muffin kick lately, I thought I’d try making chocolate cherry muffins. I’ve had half a bag of dried cherries sitting in the pantry since October, so it was time to use them up! And I had all of the other ingredients on hand too, so these muffins were just meant to be. Unfortunately, I’m still learning when it comes to baking, and I burnt them. They weren’t so burnt that they were inedible, but they did end up being a little bit dry, especially on the bottom. I’ve adjusted […]

How To Make Your Own Balsamic Ketchup

February 3 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I have a deep love and appreciation for ketchup. (You’ve seen my Cranberry Chipotle Ketchup recipe, right?) So naturally, when I saw that Heinz was introducing a ketchup made with balsamic vinegar, I decided that I needed to try it immediately. And then I found out it wasn’t available everywhere; it seemed the stores I frequent are not stores that carry it. Obviously, I had to try to make it myself. Obviously! I adapted this balsamic ketchup recipe from Serious Eats’ Homemade Ketchup. Are you ready to make ketchup? Let’s get started! You will need these things: 2 tbsp olive oil 1 medium onion, chopped 1 garlic clove, minced 1 (28 oz) can tomato puree 1/­­2 cup packed brown sugar 1/­­4 cup balsamic vinegar 1 tbsp tomato paste 1/­­2 tsp kosher salt 1/­­2 tsp ground mustard 1/­­8 tsp ground cloves, for that certain je ne sais quoi (yes, the “quoi” in ketchup is cloves--of this, I am certain) 1/­­8 tsp allspice 1/­­8 tsp cayenne pepper Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until just beginning to brown, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add minced garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds. Add the tomato […]

Recipe | Vegetable Baked Ziti

January 27 2020 Oh My Veggies 

This January marks the eighth year that I’ve been doing Weight Watchers. While my weight has fluctuated since reaching my goal and I’m now actively trying to lose weight again, I really feel like it was joining Weight Watchers that prompted me to learn how to cook and get creative in the kitchen. Because before Weight Watchers? Our meals were pretty much take out, stir fry, or pasta. Pasta showed up on the menu at least once a week. I’d make a whole box (!!!) and my husband and I would split it. He’d put lots of sauce on his, while I’d put a little bit of sauce and a mountain of grated Parmesan on mine. I was under the impression that a ginormous bowl of pasta was a typical serving–after all, that’s what most restaurants serve, right? It was a shock to find out that those big boxes of pasta that my husband and I were eating by ourselves are meant to serve eight people. Oops. One of the first changes I made when I joined Weight Watchers was downsizing those pasta portions. But clearly, two ounces of pasta alone just wasn’t going to cut it. So I started […]

Roasted Cauliflower Hummus

January 20 2020 Oh My Veggies 

You know what I hate? Suggested serving sizes. I love hummus. I don’t make usually make hummus myself (unless it’s Edamame Hummus) because it ends up being a disaster, so I buy the little tubs of hummus at the grocery store. And I totally want to eat half the tub in one sitting. But a serving size is almost always two tablespoons. Two tablespoons. Which is nothing! Who eats two tablespoons of hummus?! I am totally a volume eater. Hummus is a healthy food, but the calories really add up when you want to eat more than two tablespoons. So I thought I’d try replacing the chickpeas with roasted cauliflower. Oh sure, my hummus wouldn’t have as much protein, but I’d be able to eat a lot more of it, which is nice too, right? As usual, I thought I was being super innovative, but then I Googled it and about a gajillion recipes for paleo hummus made with cauliflower came up. Oh snap. Anyway, if you divide this Roasted Cauliflower Hummus into four HUGE SERVINGS (see, all caps means the servings are big), you end up saving about 90 calories per serving. I kind of wanted to have a […]

Recipe | Fat Elvis Ice Cream

January 13 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I’ve been wanting an ice cream maker for a while. My husband, however, wasn’t convinced that it was a necessity. When the Steamy Kitchen store had a deal for $50 off of a $100 purchase, I figured it was a sign. It was the cosmos saying, “Kieeeeersten, buy yourself an ice cream maaaaker. Make delicious thiiiiiings.” Not being one to say no to the cosmos, I immediately bought myself a 1 1/­­2 quart Cuisinart ice cream maker. (I also bought a neon orange hand mixer, but that’s neither here nor there.) So! The ice cream maker was bought. Then what? Well, I figured I would break it in by making Fat Elvis Ice Cream. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that my husband and I moved from Wisconsin to North Carolina a few months ago. One of the things we desperately miss about living in Madison is Chocolate Shoppe. Don’t let the name confuse you--Chocolate Shoppe is all about ice cream. Super rich, indulgent, once-in-a-while-special-treat ice cream. And, in my humble opinion (and my husband’s too), their best flavor is Fat Elvis. Yes, this is the same Fat Elvis ice cream that was the inspiration […]

Freezer-Friendly Greens & Tofu Scramble Wraps

January 6 2020 Oh My Veggies 

It’s always my goal to create recipes that aren’t just tasty, but that are doable. For me, part of “doable” is ingredients that are readily available. This isn’t just about you, it’s also about me--I live in a smallish town and I don’t want to be schlepping all over the place for ingredients either. But I was working on a tofu scramble for a while and it just wasn’t coming together and I finally had to acknowledge the fact that I needed to go to Raleigh to get some nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a flaky little deactivated yeast that tastes like cheese. So it’s great for vegan cooking. It’s a good source of vitamins (some brands, like Bob’s Red Mill, are fortified with Vitamin B12) and even contains some protein. If, like me, you can’t find it at your local grocery store, you can buy nutritional yeast on Amazon. But since I needed the nutritional yeast right away, I didn’t order it online and went to Earth Fare, 40 minutes away, to get it. I got home and since I was going to use it the next day, I decided to leave it on the countertop, as I sometimes […]

Recipe | Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

December 30 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I feel like this week is like the movie Groundhog Day for my blog. Because last week I posted recipes involving sweet potatoes and candy canes. And this week? More sweet potatoes and more candy canes. I was going to save this Chewy Chocolate Candy Cane cookies recipe for next week, but I want to post it in time for holiday baking. Because it’s really good! (And if you don’t have candy canes on hand, you can use starlight mints too. I made these again to update the photos and they are just as good. Peppermint candy is peppermint candy, right?) I am not a crispy cookie person. For me, it’s all about the chewiness. And these cookies are the easiest, chewiest, yummiest cookies I make. The basic chocolate cookie is one of my go-to recipes (yup, it’s the one I used in my Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches) and I add whatever I have on hand to finish them. Toffee pieces, peanut butter chips, dried cherries, chopped nuts--they’re all great in these cookies. So since it’s Christmas cookie season, I decided to try adding broken candy cane pieces. They’re not the prettiest cookie, it’s true, but they make […]

Tofu Enchiladas with Sweet Potato in Mole Sauce

December 13 2019 Oh My Veggies 


Creamy Tomato Soup

December 7 2019 Oh My Veggies 

This creamy tomato soup is perfect for starting a meal. Tomatoes, a carrot, onion, garlic, and vegetable broth combine to make a tasty soup that will be appreciated by all guests around the table.  

Recipe | Baked Sriracha Butternut Squash Fries

December 2 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I am perpetually counting calories. Which is a whole lot of fun! Perhaps this is just my perception, but it sure seems like the food blogging world is full of the “Oh gosh, I just eat whatever I want and I never workout!” types who weigh 110 pounds and post six dessert recipes a week, usually involving Rolos and/­­or several heaping cups full of Nutella and I resent them and their amazing metabolism. I am not one of those bloggers. Nope. I have to watch every single thing I eat. So butternut squash fries make a frequent appearance on our dinner table. If I’m making veggie burgers or grilled cheese or something else that’s a little bit high in calories, butternut squash fries are a good low calorie counter-balance to that. And they’re filling! And delicious! And healthy! Butternut squash is high in fiber, beta carotene, potassium, and Vitamins C & B6. So in addition to having fewer calories than potato fries, they’re more nutritious too. Lower calories! More nutrition! Really, you can’t go wrong with butternut squash fries. Okay, there’s one slight downside. Butternut squash fries are not as crispy as regular fries. They’re just as versatile, though. I […]

A Vegetarian Thanksgiving Menu

November 25 2019 Oh My Veggies 

I hope you’ve enjoyed the week of vegetarian Thanksgiving posts that I put together with Rikki! I’ve gotten so used to working on my own as a blogger that it’s nice to collaborate with someone else once in a while and see my food through another photographer’s eyes (or camera lens). And Rikki isn’t just an amazing photographer, but she’s also a great friend and mentor who totally gets my food, so I can’t imagine working with anyone else. I’m totally thrilled with how all of her photos turned out in these vegetarian recipes for a vegetarian thanksgiving main course! Here’s our complete menu with vegetarian recipes for thanksgiving main course: Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash Rings /­­/­­ Roasted acorn squash rings stuffed with quinoa, apples, cranberries, sage, and cheddar. A main dish for vegetarians that also works as a side dish for everyone else! Whipped Sweet Potatoes /­­/­­ Vanilla-scented sweet potatoes lightly sweetened with maple syrup and topped with candied pecans. The perfect alternative to the typical marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole. Rosemary Roasted Carrots /­­/­­ Heirloom carrots make this simple Thanksgiving side dish a showstopper. Green Beans & Caramelized Shallots /­­/­­ Tender roasted green beans are topped with caramelized shallots. Wild Mushroom Gravy […]

Brussels Sprout and Apple Tart with Walnut Pesto

November 22 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Thanksgiving is next week. Did I just blow your mind? Fine, maybe not. Maybe you are a person who has things together, who plans everything in advance, and for that, I commend you. I used to be that person too. But then I turned into a person says “Have a good weekend!” on Tuesdays and who does all her Christmas shopping the day before Christmas. I have no sense of time and no have-it-togetherness. Evidenced by my use of the word “have-it-togetherness.” The thought of hosting a Thanksgiving gathering makes me a little bit woozy, in fact. There is so much planning involved! It’s kind of like Tetris, except instead of fitting together colorful shapes, you’re figuring out when to put the gratin in the oven when the breadsticks need to be cooked at the same time, but at a different temperature or how you’re going to cook 5 different things on the stovetop when you only have 4 burners. Also, there’s no Russian-y Tetris music playing while you figure this stuff out, which makes it much less fun. Well, this is the kind of main dish that makes things a little bit easier. Here’s the game plan: you make […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

May 17 2019 Oh My Veggies

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

March 11 2019 Oh My Veggies 

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 

This isn’t a recipe for your typical Kraft dinner; this Mac and Cheese is an appetizing, melting-in-your-mouth dish with a crispy topping--a good little dish to wake up the child in you!

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

January 19 2019 Oh My Veggies 

What’s better than a waffle? A waffle with chocolate! These simple waffles are a well-balanced combination between a crispy outside and soft inside that you want from a good waffle. This recipe must absolutely become part of your brunch repertoire. Waffles will keep for up to 1 month in the freezer; just warm it in the toaster when you’re ready to eat!

Broccoli and Parmesan Soup

January 16 2019 Oh My Veggies

Fresh and light, this must-have recipe can be easily adapted to your needs! You can choose whether to make it sweet or salty; your imagination is the only limit! For a sweet version: remove the vegetables and mix the cream cheese with a mix of fruits like strawberries, blueberries, apples, etc.

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.

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 […]

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

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 […]

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.

Vegan Lentil Mushroom Burgers

June 5 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Vegan Lentil Mushroom Burgers As I mentioned last week, things have been a little hectic around here lately with the additional work I’m doing for my book. Luckily, my cookbook is for a very specific type of cooking, so while there are some recipes I come up with for the book that I really want to post on my blog too, there are a lot of recipes I come up with for the blog that wouldn’t be a good fit with the book. But even still, I spend a lot of time trying to think up new recipe ideas.

Vegetarian Thai Veggie Burgers

May 25 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I’ve lived in a vegetarian household for over seven years now, and it’s fair to say I’ve made my share of veggie burger recipes. Some have been insanely good, some meh, and some downright disgusting. Two qualities are necessary for a good veggie burger: the right texture and, of course, incredible flavor. If you achieve only one of these, your burger will probably fall into the “meh” category--you don’t like it and you don’t hate it, but you probably won’t ever make it again. And if you’re missing both flavor and texture, forget it. Then you have the veggie burgers that have it all, like these sturdy Thai veggie burgers--made all the better because they’re piled high with Thai pickles and finished off with a generous smear of curried cashew cream. They’re a little bit involved, so they’re not your everyday kind of veggie burger, but they’re perfect for a Saturday evening when you’ve got time on your hands and you want to make a dinner that will impress. The secret to perfect veggie burgers Inspired by a Thai Turkey Burgers recipe from Epicurious, these veggie burgers are packed with flavor thanks to Thai spices, toppings, and sauces. And the texture is just right--nice and firm so that they hold up to being topped, sauced, […]

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Bibimbap

May 18 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Photos by Rikki Snyder Bibimbap! Have you heard of it? You will love it! What exactly is bibimbap? Its a traditional Korean dish which translates to mixed rice (bibi = mixed, bap = rice). A variety of sautéed, raw, and pickled vegetables are served on top of white rice with a raw or over-easy egg and sliced meat. I took the Make it Meatless vegetarian approach to this bibimbap recipe by substituting roasted sweet potato slices for the meat. Sweet potatoes for meat? Does that sound like a strange substitution? I assure you, it works! The sweet potatoes are filling, flavorful, and add life to the meal. One of my favorite parts about this dish is how much variety goes into the bowl. You can pick and choose your favorite vegetables, and create a combination of raw and cooked vegetables with a tasty sauce. I went with sautéed shiitake mushrooms and sweet potatoes, which I served with raw shredded carrot, eggs, pickled cucumbers (I used store-bought, but I’ve linked to a recipe in the ingredient list if you can’t find them!), kimchi, and a gingery chili garlic sauce drizzled over everything. These bowls are so flavorful and satisfying that it took […]

Bean, Pesto, and Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Tomatoes

May 15 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I got the idea for this Bean, Pesto, and Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Tomatoes recipe in a roundabout way. Now that I have basil growing in the garden again, I’m on a quest to use up my frozen pesto because I’ll be able to make it fresh whenever I want to. If making a big batch of pesto and freezing it for fall and winter marks the end of summer for me, then frantically trying to use up that pesto is a sure sign of spring. It happens every year, like clockwork. It’s a good thing this recipe took a few tries to get right--I think I used half of my pesto supply perfecting it. The first time I made it, I only used cannelini beans. It was not good. I’ve realized that I only like cannelini beans as a component of a dish, not as the main ingredient. White bean cakes with just white beans, pesto, panko, and egg were definitely meh. So then I used half the beans and more ingredients each subsequent trial. Cheese! Why not? A zucchini? Of course! And then quinoa. Sometimes less is more, but sometimes more is more. And this is a more […]

Mexican Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

May 11 2020 Oh My Veggies 

When you puree chia seed pudding, it becomes smooth and creamy just like traditional pudding. In this recipe for Mexican Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding, I also added cinnamon and cayenne--because why not? It works for my breakfast shake, and it works really well in this pudding too. Bonus: you can totally have this chia seed pudding for breakfast. Breakfast pudding! We’ll live like kings!

Non-Dairy Cinnamon Vanilla Cashew Milk

May 8 2020 Oh My Veggies 

This recipe for Non-Dairy Cinnamon Vanilla Cashew Milk is so simple. If I only knew how easy it was to make my own non-dairy milks, I would have started doing it years ago. Why did it take me so long to discover this?! Okay, it’s still not as easy as picking up a carton of almond milk at the store. But it’s easier than I thought it would be. After learning about carrageenan, I decided that I wanted to avoid non-dairy milk made with it. This is not a lecture-y blog, so don’t take this as me telling you what you should or should not eat, but I decided that for me, I’d rather seek out products that don’t use carrageenan. There are plenty of carrageenan-free nut and soy milks out there, but I started to get curious about whether I could make my own. I started with my friend Kelly’s tutorial on how to make your own coconut milk. It was easy and delicious and I wanted to make more. MOOOORE! So then I tried making the cashew milk recipe that came with my Vitamix. I love almond milk, but I think I love cashew milk even more. (Side […]

Cauliflower Hummus Burgers with Mint Tzatziki

May 4 2020 Oh My Veggies 

You read the title right: Cauliflower Hummus Burgers with Mint Tzatziki. I finally made a veggie burger recipe for the blog. But they’re not burger-y burgers. They’re hummus burgers. I wanted something with the flavors of hummus, in burger form. And because I like a little texture in my burgers, I didn’t want to use actual hummus. So instead, I smashed some chickpeas and cauliflower together with tahini, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. The first time I made this, I did it without the cauliflower and it just didn’t work out. The burgers needed a little more moisture, so I thought I’d experiment by adding steamed cauliflower the next time around. The cauliflower doesn’t take away from the hummus flavor, but it makes the burgers less crumbly and adds some veggie goodness to the patties. I should mention, these burgers aren’t really made for grilling. Most veggie burgers are either cooked in a skillet, on a grill (indoor or outdoor), or baked in the oven. I pretty much hate doing them in the skillet and avoid it at all costs--they seem to end up greasy and fall apart on me. Grilling works for some burgers, but not others (again, […]

Pesto-Roasted Veggie Sandwiches

May 1 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I never need an excuse to go to  bakery. I might go there to get something for a meal, but I won’t leave without a tarte tatin or eclair. In seeking new and different ways to use pesto, I wanted to do something sandwichy. Yes, it’s a word! Sandwichy! For this recipe, I bought a crusty loaf of sourdough bread from our local French bakery, and then yellow squash, zucchini, and portabella mushrooms from the grocery store. I had pesto, Parmesan cheese, and an onion on hand. Because roasting is pretty much my default way of preparing vegetables, I thought I’d marinate the veggies in a pesto and olive oil mixture and then throw them in the oven until they got all caramelized and delicious. If you prefer grilling your vegetables, that would work too, of course--I mean, basically the idea is to cook the vegetables before putting them on the sandwich, you know? These sandwiches are bound to become a weekend staple in our household. Most Saturdays, we swing by the farmers market to pick up fresh veggies and the bakery is on the way home. And on Saturdays, we’re usually so busy, the last thing we want to […]

Chia Surprise Muffins

April 27 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Oh, I can’t keep a secret. The surprise is jam. Jam! There’s jam in the middle of these muffins. Surprise! I’ve been making these muffins every week or two for the past few months. I love them because they’re not too sweet (the older I get, the less I want super sweet food in the morning) and the jam is baked on the inside, so I don’t even have to get the jar out of the fridge. Convenient! These muffins are actually one of the first recipes I remember making. (Well, not these muffins, because back in the 80s, chia seeds were for sprouting on little ceramic heads, not for eating.) After finding my Aunt Darlene’s old copy of Betty Crocker’s New Boys and Girls Cookbook at my grandparents’ house, I relentlessly begged my Grandma to help me make something from it. Each time I visited, we’d make something different: a pie made with pudding and rainbow marshmallows (remember those?!), roses made from radishes, and Surprise Muffins. And then my Grandma let me keep the book. I’m not sure it was because I loved it so much (and I did) or because she was tired of me wanting to make […]

Recipe | Drunken Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

April 17 2020 Oh My Veggies 

I’m not sure why I love cooking with beer so much when I don’t like to drink beer at all. Escandalo! A food blogger that doesn’t like beer! Yes, it’s true; I’m just not a fan. I do like Guinness and I love me some lambic (my Chocolate Lambic Cupcakes are probably one of my favorite recipes on this blog), but other than that, beer is just yucky to me. And of course, when you don’t like beer, people never just take it at face value. No, they assume you’re judgy about drinking or that you’re uncool or super religious. Can’t a person just not like beer? Is it really that strange? C’mon, you know it tastes kind of foul. You know it does! Cooking with beer is another story, though. And that bitter flavor that keeps me from drinking beer is the very reason I love to cook with it--I like that slight bitter note that it lends to dishes. It adds interest and depth without adding a lot of calories. Case in point? These Drunken Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. After making Drunken Franks with Field Roast Frankfurters last week, I became a little bit obsessed with the idea of […]

Vegetarian Shipwreck Casserole

April 10 2020 Oh My Veggies 

My mom always had a few recipes that she’d make all the time when I was growing up. There was Cheesy Beef Casserole, which is pretty self-explanatory. Cheese. Buddig Beef. Potatoes. Toast. And then there was Chicken a la King, the only way I’d ever eat peas (even if I’d pick the chicken out). But one of the recipes that always stands out in my memories is Shipwreck. Shipwreck, my mom told me, was named such because it was all that people had to eat after their ships wrecked. Naturally, anytime my mom would make it, I’d imagine Pilgrims on a tropical island, cans of Campbell’s soup and baked beans in hand, preparing to make a casserole over a camp fire. I had an active imagination, you see. (I also had two imaginary friends named Joy and Field--Joy after the dish soap and Field after Marshall Fields. Incidentally, Field looked exactly like Joyce DeWitt from Three’s Company.) Anyway! When I did a vegetarian casserole challenge with Valerie from Eclecticisms, I challenged her to make a vegetarian shipwreck casserole. It sounded so good and brought back so many warm and fuzzy memories that I just had to try to make it […]

Strawberry Mimosa Cupcakes

Recipe | Kale & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

March 27 2020 Oh My Veggies 

There are two things you should know about this recipe: 1. The name is a lie. There’s no queso in these quesadillas. But calling them “dillas” makes them sound like something cutesy off of a children’s menu, doesn’t it? 2. Yes, if it sounds familiar, it’s because I made these with leftovers from my Sweet Potato & Kale Wraps. I decided to save the recipe for a rainy day and its day has finally come! So yeah, about #2. We had tortillas and fillings leftover after making those wraps. But, as you saw, I am no burrito wrapper, so the second night around, I made these Kale & Sweet Potato Quesadillas for dinner. Instead of binding everything together with cheese like in a traditional quesadillas, I used mashed sweet potatoes. Is this weird? Okay, fine, maybe it sounds weird, but sweet potatoes and kale go really well together (this is one of my most popular posts, after all!) and so do sweet potatoes and black beans. Oh, and one note about the chorizo: if you can purchase Field Roast locally, use their Mexican Chipotle sausage. Their sausage is made with real vegetables, grains, and spices and it’s minimally processed. (Yes, […]

Peanut Udon Noodles with Snow Peas

March 13 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Peanut Udon Noodles are one of my favorite lunches, although I really don’t make them as often as I should. You can eat them warm or cold; you can load them up with any veggies you happen to have on hand. (I made this version with snow peas, but I’ve also used red peppers, green onions, zucchini, and cucumbers.) I’ve tried a lot of peanut noodle recipes in my day, but this is the best by far. What else is there to say about peanut noodles? Well, not much, so instead, here are some random tips that will come in handy when you make this recipe. (And you are making this recipe, right?) Does this happen to you? You buy the fancy natural peanut butter, you open it up, and there’s about a half inch of oil on top. You try to stir it all together and get oil all over your hands and counter and despite your best efforts, the peanut butter is still dry and rock hard by the time you get to the bottom of the jar. Solution: before you open your jars of peanut butter, store them upside down. That way, the oil will float to […]

Recipe | Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas + Homemade Fajita Seasoning Mix

March 6 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Champagne mangoes are heeeere! I knew they’d be in season again soon, so I’ve been stalking Whole Foods waiting for the glorious day when there’s a huge crate of them front and center in the produce section. Every week, I’ve been disappointed. And last week, I was prepared to be disappointed again when I didn’t see that big huge crate, but I managed to find the champagne mangoes in a small crate at the back of the produce section. Then I did a little dance. And for once it wasn’t because of the peppy instrumental version of “Big Country” playing over the PA system. No, it was because I finally had my precious champagne mangoes and I could make my Sweet & Spicy Mango Fajitas. I keep a huge running list of recipe ideas on my computer and mango fajitas has been on there for at least a year now. Oh sure, I could have made them with regular mangoes, but I wanted to wait for the champagne mangoes because: a) they’re cheaper than regular mangoes when they’re in season, b) they’re tastier than regular mangoes, and c) I have never bought a bad champagne mango, but it seems like […]

Recipe | Sweet Potato & Kale Wraps

February 28 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Originally these were going to be burritos. Having never wrapped burritos before, they turned out a little flat. I was hoping no one would notice, but as soon as I gave my husband his, he was all, “This doesn’t look like a burrito at all! Burritos are round!” So I decided rather than making them again, I’d just call them Sweet Potato & Kale Wraps. I’m lazy like that. These wraps were inspired by a recipe for Portuguese Burritos by MomFoodie. She had mentioned that she felt they were lacking something, so I decided to add a crapload of stuff to the burritos to add flavor. I didn’t want to add cheese, but I needed something to help bind the burrito together, hence the mashed sweet potatoes. I added black beans too and to replicate that smoky flavor the beans have at Mexican restaurants, I added a little smoked Spanish paprika to them. Caramelized onions clearly make everything better, so those went in too. I guess I kind of used a “throw enough things at the wall and eventually something will stick” approach to these burritos wraps. Luckily everything did stick, and although they might sound a little bit weird, […]

Recipe | Meyer Lemon & Basil Sorbet

February 21 2020 Oh My Veggies 

As a consumer, my weakness is novelty. Instead of growing red tomatoes, I grow purple ones; instead of listening to No Doubt in junior high, I was obsessed with Pavement. I’ve always been slightly contrarian by nature and I think my appreciation for all things new and different stems from that. When it comes to citrus fruit, this time of year is pretty good for novelty. I’m not much of a citrus eater the rest of the year, but winter is different. There’s Satsumas and Minneolas and Blood Oranges and they’re all readily available and affordable. And unlike regular oranges and tangerines, I like these kinds of citrus. When I saw Meyer lemons at the grocery store, I knew I wanted to try making a sorbet with them. Their deep yellow rind was so bright and cheerful and it made the regular lemons a few bins away look so boring and blah. The darker rind comes from the fact that Meyer lemons originated by crossing lemons with oranges. Although the appeal of Meyer lemons is that they’re sweeter and less acidic than regular lemons, I’ve found that they’re still a little too sour for my tastes. So yes, there’s lots […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwiches with Arugula Pesto

February 14 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Photos by Rikki Snyder Not everyone is a fan of leftovers, but for me, it feels like a triumph to cook once and have dinner for two days. I win at meal planning! Take that, world! And then I do a little dance in my kitchen, waving my hands in the air like I just don’t care, thinking about all the things I’ll have time for now that I don’t have to make dinner. Things like watching RuPaul’s Drag Race and making up songs about my cats. I do get why some people have an aversion to leftovers, though. A lot of the time, things just aren’t quite as good the second time around. So this recipe is the perfect compromise for leftover lovers and leftover haters. It starts with a big batch of arugula pesto. Whip that up and use it to make Roasted Red Pepper and Mozzarella Sandwiches one night, and then the next night, use it to make a pasta dinner. Let’s start with the sandwiches. You can grill them panini-style to make them gooey and melty and warm, or you can skip that part and eat them without heating. Arugula has a peppery, assertive flavor, so […]

Recipe | Coconut-Lime Tofu Soup

February 7 2020 Oh My Veggies 

In case you were wondering, I’m still doing Weight Watchers (and I’ve lost 10 pounds--yay me!). It just feels weird to write about it all the time here. Anyway! I typically find it easy to stick to the plan for breakfast and dinner, and I’m not much of a snacker, so that’s not a problem either. But lunch has been difficult. I don’t like frozen foods and I’m not a big salad eater. I did sandwiches for a while, but I burnt out on those. I like some canned soups, but I’m trying to avoid them because of the whole BPA thing. When lunchtime rolls around, it’s usually, “Oh, what I’m going to eat? I guess I’ll have some potato chips and a tangerine.” So I’m not so much over-eating when it comes to lunch--it’s mostly just that I’m eating odd things. Things that don’t really constitute a meal. Not having time to whip up something from scratch on a daily basis, I’ve found that a good solution has been to make a big batch of soup on Sundays to eat during the work week. Soup is easy to heat up and I can have it with some fruit and […]

Recipe | Lemony Wheat Berries with Roasted Brussels Sprouts (+ Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Wheat Berries!)

January 31 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Did you make any food-related resolutions this year? I don’t have resolutions--I have goals. (I like to pretend there’s a difference and that somehow, goals are much more achievable.) I want to eat less sugar. I’m trying to eat more fruit--I’ve always liked veggies more than fruit, and sometimes it’s a struggle to get myself to eat it. (Unless it’s in pie form. But I’m cutting down on sugar, remember?) And I want to eat more grains. Yes, grains! Delicious, nutritious whole grains. So you might see some more grains around here this year. And if you don’t see more grains around here, it means that I’m a big failure. I guess grains aren’t the most exciting thing to see on a food blog, are they? I mean, if I told you that you’d be seeing more Rolos on Oh My Veggies this year, you’d probably be pretty jazzed. But instead, I’m telling you to be on the lookout for... bulgur! Barley! Wheat Berries! Ooooh. Okay, so what are wheat berries? I discovered wheat berries by accident last year. I needed farro for a recipe and it was crazy expensive. Sitting next to the farro were bags of wheat berries--much […]

Creamy Wild Mushroom Rice Soup

January 24 2020 Oh My Veggies 

And Soup Week continues! It also ends with this delicious creamy mushroom rice soup. I guess since I only post 2-3 recipes each week, theme weeks are not very epic around here, huh? Theme months would be way too much I think, but maybe I’ll start doing theme fortnights in the future. (Yes, I said fortnight. I’m fancy like that.) Having grown up in the midwest, I can tell you this: Midwesterners like their food creamy. We love cheesy casseroles, anything made with canned soup, and all kinds of concoctions made with sour cream, mayo, and/­­or cheese sauce (usually and, not or). Being sick last week, I was craving comfort food and to me, comfort food is creamy food. So I set out to make a vegetarian version of the classic Creamy Wild Rice & Chicken Soup. And then, because it’s the New Year and I’m trying to watch what I eat, I set out to make a lighter version. Behold, Creamy Wild Mushroom Rice Soup. The biggest obstacle was figuring out what to replace the chicken with. I’m always hesitant to cook with seitan on my blog because I don’t know if that’s readily available everywhere. And tofu in […]

Portobello Pizza with Roasted Garlic Sauce and Kale

January 17 2020 Oh My Veggies 

Do I post too many pizza recipes? I hope the answer to this question is no, because I’m about to post another. A portobello pizza with garlic sauce and kale, to be exact. I just couldn’t help myself! I’m feeling pretty jazzed about pizza lately since I made two discoveries: 1) The best whole wheat pizza crust recipe in existence. 2) The magic of pizza stones. So let’s talk about the crust. In all of my previous pizza recipes, I’ve called for pre-made crust. When I’ve tried making my own pizza crust in the past, it never turned out well and it always took so much time to do--I mean, isn’t the point of pizza that it’s supposed to be a quick meal? And you expect me to make my own crust? Psshh. But after overcoming my fear of baking with yeast, I started experimenting with pizza crust. And then I found this recipe: Bookmark it, print it, pin it, whatever you need to do. Because this recipe is awesome. It tastes good, it’s easy (even with the yeast!), and the best part is, Martha Stewart includes instructions for making these crusts ahead and freezing them. So then when you […]

Super Easy No-Knead Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

January 10 2020 Oh My Veggies 

This is not a post meant to shame you into making your own whole wheat sandwich bread. Because I am not one of those bloggers. You know, the kind that make you feel like a terrible human being because you’re not making your own almond milk from almonds you grew yourself, maintaining your own bee hives in your backyard, trekking into the woods to harvest wild morel mushrooms every spring? Yeah, that’s not me. I mean, if you want to be an urban beekeeper, that’s totally cool. But I’m way too lazy for that sort of thing. Plus, bees make me nervous. They sting, yo. So please know that I’m not posting this because I think you should be making all your bread yourself. This was just a fun project that I wanted to do for a while and I thought I’d share it. If you read a lot of food blogs, perhaps you’ve seen me commenting on other people’s bread posts taking about how baking with yeast scares me. (So if you’re keeping track, I’m scared of bees an
