Homemade Lachuch

Was too lazy to go out and buy bread on this rainy day, so I decided to make my own using ingredients I already had at home. I’ve been wanting to make Jamie Geller’s Lachuch (yemenite flatbread) so I figured this was a perfect opportunity. Here’s her recipe (you can find my additions below the…

Cauliflower Tikka Masala

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for Cauliflower Tikka Masala for a while after seeing it on The Cutting Veg instagram feed, and finally got around to making it this weekend!

Kale Walnut Pesto

I tried two methods: one using the stove…

Superfood Roasted Salmon

Peanut Butter Tempeh

A combination of two of my favorite foods, peanut butter and tempeh. I snagged a few bites of the tempeh with the peanut sauce before I baked it, and I knew I would love the final product because it was delicious even before putting it into the oven. This recipe is very easy to make,…

Ooey Gooey Khachapuri

I just came back from Israel. When I was in Jerusalem, one of the restaurants I was recommended to check out (and didn’t have a chance to) was called the Khachapuriah, which is known for it’s Khachapuri. Ever since seeing pictures of this dish, I’ve been craving it, and today I decided to make it…

Moroccan Lentil Soup

I don’t have much experience baking soups, so I thought I’d try something new by trying this recipe from the New York Times out. I also loved eating Moroccan Soup during my trip to Morocco (read more about other foods I enjoyed here Top Moroccan Food and Drinks You Need to Try (Vegetarian Friendly)) Here’s how…
