I never fail to be impressed with the creativity and complex flavors of Indian food – particularly since much of it tends to be vegetarian. With this plant-based Palak Tofu, the soy-based protein of firm tofu stands in for the paneer. You won’t even miss it!Continue reading “Clean Eating: Instant Pot Palak Tofu”
With the chill in the air, warming soups and comforting meals are just the ticket – and they can be made quickly and easily using an electric pressure cooker! For this one, I cooked dry chickpeas without soaking them first and used them as the base for a delightfully hearty and veggie-packed curry.Continue reading “Under Pressure: Chunky Chickpea Curry”
If you’ve visited our blog for a while, you probably know that we cook most of our food. Eating out is a rarity, typically limited to special occasions. Every once in a while, though, we find a place where we don’t have to worry about how the meat was sourced (because there is no meat), and where creativity and skill come together in food that is a treat for the tastebuds and the eyes…like Half-Peach Bakery & Café.Continue reading “Meatless Eats: Half-Peach Vegan Bakery & Café”
Who doesn’t like one pot meals? I sure do, and the idea of making rich and satisfying meatless spaghetti with noodles, right in the pot, was an appealing one. And cleanup is a breeze – just one pot to clean! This is one of those meals that you’ll want to make again and again.Continue reading “Meatless Meals: Easy Instant Pot Spaghetti”
Are you wondering why we post frequently about about meatless meals, since we raise and process our own livestock? Does it seem contradictory to eat animals we raise and also eat vegetarian (or vegan) food? It’s really not…and it’s part of a healthy flexitarian diet.
While it’s not technically “Slow Cooking Month” anymore, I’m still making delicious meals in my slow cooker and will be for the remainder of the year! This time, I’ve adapted a stovetop recipe for one of my favorite Indian dishes, Palak Paneer, into a one bowl meal where tofu stands in for the traditional cheese.
This is, without a doubt, one of my ⭐️favorite⭐️ slow cooker dishes. Its flavors meld into a hearty, savory, utterly delightful one-pot meal. Even if you aren’t a big kale fan, you’ll appreciate this soup!
When it comes to meatless “chicken”, Quorn is hard to beat. I’ve tried several meatless products that were meant to look and taste like chicken, and none was as convincing as Quorn.
This is the time of year when hearty comfort foods like soups, stews, and chili are particularly appreciated: warming and filling, and so easy to make in the slow cooker. Chili on butternut squash (ubiquitous now, too) is a savory-spicy-and slightly sweet taste experience!
