  • Meatless Monday: Burrito Bowl

    One of the most fun things about the new bowl craze is the opportunity for creative fun. As I was pondering what to make for dinner last evening, I decided to make a bowl out of stuff I already had in my pantry and fridge. As it turns out, I was able to make a bowl with a coherent theme: Mexican. I've read a few recipes for burrito bowls. The one I made last evening incorporated elements of some of these, but also included my own ideas. I wanted to include a veggies that aren’t typically a part of burrito bowls, so...

  • Meatless Monday: Quinoa Roasted Veggie Bowl

    Roasted veggies are just so good. They don’t take a whole lot of time to prepare and cook, and they’re really flavorful. Roasting seems to concentrate their flavors. I made this recipe for my partner and me. As much as I love roasted veggies, they don’t work all that well as leftovers. So I chopped enough veggies for four servings, using the measurements below. Then I tossed all the veggies together and roasted half of them the first day. This made plenty of veggies for both of us. The next day, the bowls took very little time to prepare because my...

  • Meatless Monday: Vegan Primavera

    Right off, I’ll confess the obvious: it’s not Monday today. Due to a temporary technical glitch yesterday, Meatless Monday will occur on Tuesday this week. In honor of the Spring Equinox—yea spring!—today’s recipe will celebrate the flavors of the season. When I think of spring I think of lightness, warmth and color. That’s what today’s recipe offers. I based this recipe on one I’ve made many times in Ron Pickarski’s vegan classic, Friendly Foods. But I decided to venture away from the recipe by substituting fresh asparagus in place of mushrooms and peppers. Fresh asparagus is one of the many...

  • Meatless Monday: Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

    As the weather cools and the days shorten, warming veggies move front and center. In general, root veggies such as yams, potatoes, onions, beets, turnips, rutabagas, etc. are said to be more grounding than above-ground veggies. Of course, this is not entirely true. Many above-ground veggies ripen in the fall: all types of winter squash and Brussels sprouts, to name a few. Over the years, I’ve tried probably at least a half dozen winter squash soup recipes. Some have been simple, for example a savory soup with just four ingredients: butternut squash, yams, miso and water. Others have been much...

  • Meatless Monday: Barley-Squash Soup

    Soothing Soup for Meatless Monday Okay. I know it’s Tuesday, but yesterday Hugger Mugger was unveiling a newly organized website, so the site was offline at precisely the time I would have posted my Meatless Monday recipe. Even though it’s Tuesday, this recipe will still taste great no matter when you make it. Do check out Hugger Mugger’s new website. It’s slick and clean and even easier to navigate than before. Here’s yesterday’s post: My mother was not a cook-from-scratch kind of person. She always provided balanced meals for us, but cooking was not her thing. Her creative juices instead...

  • Meatless Monday: Pappardelle Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash

    I’ll admit I’m a cookbook junkie. I probably inherited this trait from my maternal grandmother, who kept a tall stack of Gourmet magazines on a little bench that I inherited some years ago. She just enjoyed reading them. I’m the same way. I love to read cookbooks, even though I may never get around to making the recipes I read. So even with a veritable library of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, I still wander away and read magazines too. Today’s recipe comes from the September 2015 issue of Vegetarian Times. The original recipe says this takes 30 minutes or less...

  • Get Back to Your Root Vegetables

    Eat Root Vegetables to Take Off the Chill In the Northern Hemisphere, January is cold as it gets. If you are like me, you may not have felt truly warm for a very long time. Despite the layers I wear inside my drafty, old house, there’s always a chilly edge that just doesn’t abate—until I remember how to heat myself from the inside. Rev Up Vigorous movement can help take off the chill. Outdoor activities such as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing will have you peeling off layers. If you live in Utah, these activities have the added advantage of exposing...

  • Back to the Roots: Warming Veggies to Take the Chill Off

    Hearty Roots Warming Veggies to Take the Chill Off Much of the U.S. population has been inundated with snow or shivering in subzero temperatures for more than a month. If you are like me, you may not have felt truly warm for a very long time. Despite the layers I wear inside my drafty, old house, there’s always a chilly edge that just doesn’t abate—until I remember how to heat myself from the inside. Of course exercise, including certain yoga poses, can be really helpful. Standing poses such as Warriors I and II; core strengtheners such as Navasana; and...
