Chili Paste for Putting on Everything

For weeks, I have been dreaming about making a vegetarian version of this Harissa-Lamb Skillet Lasagna from Food and Wine Magazine. I was picturing the thrill of recklessly breaking the lasagna noodles into pieces and tossing them in the sauce willynilly. I realize that at this point in the post, you may be questioning my […]

My Dad and Foods to Remember

My Dad passed away. It’s been just a little over 100 days. Food is an interesting thing when you lose a loved one. Eating it, thinking about it, writing about it – it all seems trivial compared to the loss. On the other hand, my connection to food is so deeply grounded in my relationship with and […]

My two best purchases in the last 12 months have been my Instapot and my Peloton bike. That seems like a fitting pairing. Cook delicious things, eat delicious things, attempt to burn off calories associated with delicious things. When I first bought the Instapot, I thought it would be magical.

Instapot Congee with Turmeric

Spinach chaat is a similar excuse to enjoy crunchy, spicy chickpea flour with tangy spices, minty chutney plus cool creamy yogurt. It’s a mix of textures, temperatures and tastes that all come together in one bite. That mouthful pleasure is what makes chaat – […]

Crumbled Paneer and Peas

Not all Indian cooking takes forever. In fact, most Indian cooking doesn’t take forever. But this paneer bhurji is particularly fast and satisfying weeknight Indian main dish. It calls for ingredients you most likely have on hand – peas, a tomato, onions and a dash of milk – plus basic Indian spices of garam masala, cumin […]

Vegetarian Chicken Noodle Soup

This simple vegetarian version of a chicken noodle soup has become of my favorite Instant creations. The broth is super simple but gives you the comforting feeling of what I imagine drinking warm, liquid butter would be like. I spice it up with white pepper and add a healthy squeeze of lemon juice to round it […]
