Meatless Mondays

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Jeweled Rice

I often joke that the color wheel is missing a shade, one I would affectionately call “Copenhagen gray.” A delightful combination of dull steel blue and gunmetal. Although this winter has been particularly bright, there are still those days that seem like the sun never […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Crusted Jerusalem Artichokes with Beluga Lentils, Kale, and Harissa

I’ll never forget when I was working on an organic farm in California, weeding in the garden, about to pull up what I thought was a gigantic invasive species of some sort. Turned out it was Jerusalem artichokes (also called sunchokes). If you have never seen these […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Root Vegetable Mulligatawny

My dad loves string beans. Or maybe it’s that he doesn’t totally hate them. Growing up, it seemed that this was the one vegetable that was always on the table, no matter the season or the meal. I thought it was because string beans seemed […]

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Rhubarb-Lentil-Sweet Potato Stew

I love that with each new season comes fresh and exciting produce to play with. You’d think that I would have run out of fruits and veggies to try by now, but this is not the case! A trip to the market always reveals something that has […]
