Meatless Mondays

Garlicky Kale and White Bean Stew

A lot of people have been asking me lately what I eat on a daily basis. To be perfectly honest, most of it is too boring to blog about. Or perhaps I should say “simple”. This Garlicky Kale and White Bean Stew is a perfect […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Stoplight Tomato Sandwich with Herbed Goat’s Cheese

Seeing as I still don’t have a kitchen, I am eating a lot of things that don’t require much attention. Raw foods? Yes. Bread? You bet. Sandwiches have become part of the almost daily menu around here, and I can’t say that I am too torn up […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Massaged Kale Salad and Grapes with Poppy Seed Dressing

Everyone enjoys a good massage now and again. As it turns out, so does kale. I first heard about massaged kale at Cru, a restaurant in Los Angeles. The menu described the kale as “rubbed,” and having no idea what that referred to, I ordered the […]

I have no idea what’s come over me, but I am suddenly obsessed with radishes. Honestly, until a couple months ago I thought radishes were kind of gross: too earthy, too “dirt”-flavored, too pungent. So how did I go from despising to fantasizing practically overnight? That mystery […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Earth Bowls

Have you ever gotten a craving for something you’ve never even eaten before? I have. Yesterday morning I woke up and just had to eat some freekeh. Despite the “freaky” name, freekeh (pronounced free-kah), has been a dietary staple for hundreds of years in Lebanon, […]
