Cowboy Bean Salad with Lime Dressing

As the weather gets warmer, I enjoy making big salads that will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days. They’re great for a quick lunch or side dish. Serve this dish with chips and you have a great appetizer.Because the avocado is bathed in dressing, it won’t turn brown! If you don’t […]

Fluffy Flourless Peanut Butter Chickpea Muffins

Share

The name of these muffins and their ingredient list might seem a bit odd, but please trust me, these muffins are delicious. They remind me of a childhood snack that we would get to eat occasionally as a treat — Funny Bones. Those were always my favorite Drakes Cake. I enjoyed Yodels, Ring Dings, Devil […]

Carrot and White Bean Burgers

Share

I love experimenting with veggie burgers, and in my book, this recipe is a winner. It’s very tasty even without condiments and when you first make them, they hold together pretty well. My husband and I ate them for a couple of days, because of course, the boys wanted nothing to do with them. When […]

Flourless Black Bean Brownie Muffins

With the spread of coronavirus in NYC, we have been spending a lot of time together as a family. The boys’ schools have both instituted online learning, so their days have structure to them. They don’t get up quite as early as they used to, because they don’t have to commute, and although they have […]

If you’re a tomato and feta cheese fan, definitely try this. It comes together in no time. The ingredients are simple, but the […]

Black Bean Salad

Hello! I know I haven’t posted in ages, but now that school is out for the summer I have more time. The boys all successfully finished their sophomore and freshman years in high school. I’m told that next year, which is junior year for the triplets, is going to be a doozy — apparently lots […]

Burrata with Lentils and Basil Vinaigrette

Share

This is one of my all-time favorite vegetarian main dishes. It’s perfect for Fridays in Lent or Meatless Mondays. It doesn’t look like much in the photo, but it’s packed with flavor from the homemade pesto-like sauce, and it’s incredibly satisfying. I haven’t found de puy lentils at any of my grocery stores, so I […]

Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Share

This is a nice, comforting soup that’s great for chilly weather. It’s vegetarian and full of healthy ingredients. It’s thickened with a can of pumpkin puree, but doesn’t taste like pumpkin at all. Consider the pumpkin a thickener rather than a flavor-enhancer. As written, the soup is subtly seasoned and has a mild flavor. I […]
