One Bowl Wonder: Pasta e Ceci

If you find yourself with a house full of people this week… but the last thing you want to do is spend even more time in the kitchen, might I suggest this super simple one-pot Italian classic?  Pasta e Ceci.  Pasta and chickpeas.  Its a very popular classic Roman dish, and its ridiculously simple to make, vegan friendly, and so, so good!  (I even used GF pasta.) Like grown-up spaghetti-Os that kids and adults will slurp right up!  When I have no time and/or a house full of hungry people, this is my go-to.  I have yet to meet anyone who dislikes it.  Its a perfect comforting but light meal…

Summer Salads and Sides: Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

I wish I had the olive toned complexion of a Greek or the shiny dark hair of the Lebanese. But mostly, I just wish I could eat and cook Mediterranean food every day of my life.  (Maybe with a sprinkling of sushi and Thai food every once in a while, just to mix it up.)  But in general, Mediterranean food is my absolute favorite!  The flavors and colors make my stomach growl and my eyes grow wide. Ya’ll, I eat far less meat these days than I have in the past, and there are some sad-sad vegetarian options and alternatives out there.  In my opinion, Mediterranean cuisine has the best…

Summer Road Trippin’: Honey Sriracha Roasted Chickpeas

Our household is a few camping and mini-road trips into the summer weekend adventure season!  We have had some super fun ones and even more that I can hardly wait for!  So car snacks are absolutely a happening thing for this easily hangry traveler.  Hangry Maria is not someone you want as a travel buddy.  Just ask the husband. I had been dying to test out a bunch of roasted chickpea flavor ideas I’ve had floating around in my head.  So before our weekend trip a couple weeks ago, I made a small batch of each.  The two clear favorites were the honey sriracha version in this post and the…

One Bowl Wonder: Vegan Coconut Veggie Curry

This recipe is part of the One-Bowl-Wonders series.  Recipes is this series are simple, quick, and can be made with just one bowl.  They are designed to be ready to eat in about an hour without wrecking your whole kitchen!  Easy recipes. Easy clean-up. Big reward! Maybe the name of the series name should be changed to “one pot wonder” in this case, since everything is technically thrown into a pot – rather than a bowl – to simmer away.  Either way, this is a simple, healthy, easy to make dinner that can easily be improvised based on what veggies you have on hand. I know its not a secret,…
