Less Sweet) Sweet Potato Casserole with Butter Pecan Crumble Topping

Share

I love sweet potato casserole at Thanksgiving, but I find that it’s often more like dessert than a side dish. Don’t get me wrong, when a sweet potato casserole is sweet, it’s certainly delicious, but I wanted to try to make a casserole that was a little healthier. Sweet potatoes have a natural sweetness that […]

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Curry Chickpeas

Share

I love a good, hearty plant-based meal.  This one fits the bill and it’s full of flavor. It comes together very quickly, especially if you microwave the sweet potatoes, so it’s a great candidate for a healthy weeknight meal.

This recipe makes 4 stuffed sweet potatoes, enough for 2 as an entree, or 4 as a […]

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Pecans and Maple

Share

I have had my eye on this recipe for a long time. I’m a huge fan of recipes by Yotam Ottolenghi. One tastes more interesting and full of flavor than the next. His combination of herbs and spices may seem a bit strange, but the resulting dishes end up tasting wonderful.

This is a very interesting […]

Sweet Potato-Sausage Soup

Share

This soup is delicious, incredibly satisfying and really quick to make. It’s definitely something that can be made on a weeknight and served with a nice loaf of rustic bread. Since the boys wouldn’t go near it (nothing new there), we had some soup left over and I actually thought it was better on the […]

Swiss Chard and Sweet Potato Gratin

As I look at this picture, I realize that I might have done better with a shot of the whole casserole dish rather than an individual serving. Nonetheless, I can’t tell you how delicious this is. I served it the other night as the main course. It’s so rich and comforting. In my book it’s […]

I had dinner with three friends from college the other night and two of them are staunch vegetarians. One is bordering on becoming vegan. She’s vegan for Lent, so we all met in Greenwich Village at a vegan restaurant called Blossom Cafe. I read the menu online before heading downtown and I have to say […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

This chili is delicious, and it’s a perfect weeknight meal because it doesn’t take too long to prepare.   I made it for dinner on Sunday after we had been out all day, and it didn’t take long to make at all.   That said, if you have some extra time when you make this, I […]

This soup is incredibly healthy and quite delicious.    I ate it for a couple of days and I loved every bowl I ate.  The combination of spices is wonderful.   I took this picture the day after I made it.   I wish I had gotten a picture when it was first cooked – the spinach […]

Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili with Sweet Potatoes

Share

I made this chili last weekend.   My sister-in-law used a similar recipe recently and talked about how great it was.    I love the fact that this cooks in a slow-cooker.   I threw everything in the slow-cooker at noon and by 5pm our dinner was ready.   We didn’t eat until 6pm, and the chili was fine […]

Smoked Chili Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Ok, so this is now one of my favorite new recipes. I could eat this dish day and night. I had a couple of sweet potatoes from the Shelter Island CSA and it was time to use them. This recipe seemed perfect because I just happened to have some heavy cream […]
