Oil-Free Roasted Eggplant (Two ways)

Likely due to my middle eastern background, eggplant is one of my favorite foods. I’ve been seeing different methods of roasting eggplant without oil, and decided to do an experiment using two similarly sized eggplants from the same store to figure out which method I liked best. I tried two methods: one using the stove…

Superfood Roasted Salmon

I found this recipe from on the @cottercrunch instagram page and knew I had to try it! I had a surplus of blueberries and basil from my local farmers market that I wanted to use last night before they spoiled, so I thought this was the perfect recipe to make. According to Cotter Crunch this…

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…

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

So I love fries and sweet potatoes, which has led me to make sweet potato fries pretty frequently. I like mine crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and have tried different recipes. Recently, I tried making two different recipe versions as the same time so I could give a fair comparison. I…

Matzah Brei

It’s Passover, which means it’s time for one of my favorite dishes, Matzah Brei! I’ve seen many different versions, but decided to share my own with you all (I like a savory version). This makes exactly one serving, so if you want more, just multiply the recipe by the amount of people you are cooking…

Cauliflower Shawarma

I love the smells of shawarma, but as a vegetarian, its hard to find something that absorbs the flavor of this seasoning as well as meat. I’ve tried different vegetarian versions (on tofu, broccoli, and cauliflower), and my favorite by far has been on cauliflower. Shawarma seasoning is a blend of cumin, coriander, paprika and…

Extra Crispy Cauliflower Gnocchi

Anyone else on the Trader Joes Cauliflower Gnocchi bandwagon? I love mine crispy, yet the crispy part always tends to stick to the bottom of the skillet when I make it, and leave me with a mushy, sticky mess of cauliflower gnocchi. I’ve tried countless recipes, and my favorite, most successful results were using the…
