Jeanine Donofrio’s Baked Red Lentil Falafel

I’ve always espoused an “everyday” approach to cooking. I’m a home cook, not a chef, and I doubt I could pull off gourmet cuisine if I wanted to. Even when I eat out, I gravitate toward food that’s simple and filling; fancy (and fussy) ...

Meal Prep Friendly Tofu Tahini Lunch Salad

My current GI rotation features fast days and a fully packed schedule. It’s not uncommon for my preceptor and I to have new patients on the hour, every hour, for the entirety of our work day. Lunches usually get eaten quickly, often in the spare ...

Weekend Reading | The Full Helping

Those of you who’ve been reading for a while might remember that 2017 was the year of bread baking around here.It all started when my friend Ali published her (wonderful) cookbook, Bread Toast Crumbs. I’d wanted to get serious about homemade ...

Pesto Farro & Baby Kale Salad

A few weeks ago, a friend and I met for lunch at Maman here in the city. It was cold—in typical April-in-New-York fashion, we’ve been vacillating between damp and chilly and summery warmth—and the restaurant was drafty. We huddled over cups of ...

Wholesome Vegan Lentil, Mushroom & Kale Lasagna

Since September, I’ve been telling myself that this is a year for soups, stews, easy grain dishes, sheet pan meals, and other low maintenance cooking endeavors. It’s true in many ways: soup, for example, has been a mainstay during my internship ...

Happy Sunday, all, and Happy Mother’s day to those who are celebrating it. I’m bringing my mom vegan cake, among other treats, and taking her to dinner. She was honored for her career in teaching this week, and I’m glad that she’s being ...

Sheet Pan Tamari Glazed Tempeh & Broccoli

The other day, I took a little Instagram poll to figure out what sort of recipes you’d like to see more of, or which things you’d be curious to see me veganize. I did this partly for your sake and mostly for mine: I’ve been low on recipe ideas ...

Weekend Reading | The Full Helping

Happy Sunday, friends. It’s been…a week. Nothing insurmountable, just a pile-up of a lot of things at once. They all had one thing in common, which is that they were largely outside of my control.It started last weekend. A relationship that I’d ...
