  • Lasagna Soup

    Pasta, tomatoes, herbs, red lentils, pesto, and garlic bread; I mean, you can’t go wrong with all these stuff together.

  • Hearty Vegan Mushroom Stew

    This simple and convenient vegan mushroom stew is hearty and delicious, and will become your new favorite family meal. From Ayurvedic Point of View: Mushrooms have an earthy flavor like a dark, rich, and loamy soil.

  • Whole charcoal-roasted kohlrabi

     lot of people have never heard of kohlrabi, and those who have are often reluctant to try it since it looks a little like an alien when the bulb is held upright and the stems and leaves are hanging below it. I’ve experimented with many ways of preparing this cruciferous vegetable, but roasting it on […]

  • kohlrabi kimchi

    While I enjoy cabbage-based kimchi, I prefer the firm bite that I get from turnip much more. Inspired by turnip kimchi, I use kohlrabi for this bold and spicy version. You can find gochugaru—red chile powder used in Korean cooking—at Asian markets or online. Ingredients: 1 pound kohlrabi, peeled and cut into large dice 1 […]

Ingredients: 1 cup shredded napa cabbage 1 cup shredded red cabbage 2¼ teaspoons kosher […]

I use wheat berries, the whole form of the wheat grain, since they are highly nutritious and make this a more substantial meal, and I include […]

  • Salad basics

    Whether I’m using spring and summer varieties like butter, red leaf, and romaine or fall and winter bitter leaves like radicchio, chicory, and frisée, I incorporate salad greens into hearty salads throughout the year. These leaves are all great bases, and the possibilities are limitless from there. Add other cooked and raw vegetables, dried fruits, […]

  • Asparagus with lemon-pepper marinade

    I created this recipe after watching the second episode of the first season of Atlanta. I’ve never had lemon pepper wings, but when Darius and Paper Boi drooled over the light emanating from their chicken-filled box, it was clear that I needed to see what all the hype was about. After an afternoon of testing, while […]

  • Shaved asparagus salad

    There is something about the combination of asparagus and lemon that keeps me coming back for more. This recipe has a similar flavor profile to the Asparagus with Lemon-Pepper Marinade , but don’t fret; this dish serves a different purpose than that one. I imagine the grilled asparagus in the second recipe being served on […]
