Then as I continued to pull out of it, I found myself craving crunchy vegetables and varied flavors. I sometimes think of eating whole, fresh foods as my medicine. If that’s the case, then […]

The Vegetarian Flavor Bible: A Reviewhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegetarian-flavor-bible-review/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegetarian-flavor-bible-review/#comments Sun, 18 Jan 2015 16:43:58 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3962 The Vegetarian Flavor Bible by Karen Page is a mega guide to the essence of ingredients. And while the book has already received countless accolades for ‘Best Cookbook,’ it offers far more depth and utility than most recipe-centric cookbooks. Rather than being organized by course, season or region, the majority of this informative book is […]

Vegan Pressure Cooking: A Reviewhttp://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-pressure-cooking-review/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/vegan-pressure-cooking-review/#comments Sun, 11 Jan 2015 14:27:10 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3903 Invented in the 17th century, but popularized after World War II, pressure cooking always seemed antiquated to me. The idea of cooking under pressure evoked dented, sputtering aluminum pots and frayed electrical cords. Pressure cookers seemed a bit unpredictable, and I like my kitchen equipment to be dependable and safe. In culinary school, pressure cooking never […]

Salsa Fresca Red Quinoahttp://www.homemadelevity.com/salsa-fresca-red-quinoa/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/salsa-fresca-red-quinoa/#comments Sun, 04 Jan 2015 08:33:25 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3876 This Mexican-inspired recipe combines the bright taste of a traditional chopped salsa with everyone’s favorite protein-packed seed, quinoa. The ingredients are basic, but the flavor is tangy and fresh. A pretty side dish, I love it served with some black beans or a green salad with a creamy dressing. A note on prep: Be sure […]

Scrambled Tofu Breakfast Burritohttp://www.homemadelevity.com/scrambled-tofu-breakfast-burrito/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/scrambled-tofu-breakfast-burrito/#comments Sun, 28 Dec 2014 14:02:28 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3845 Here’s a not-too-devastating admission. I tend to overstuff a burrito. And I do it to the point where it doesn’t roll up and I just end up ripping the tortilla about a quarter of the way through. So I toss the tortilla part because it’s ruined and just eat the filling. All that culinary training and I can’t […]

Israeli Couscous with Kale and Raisinshttp://www.homemadelevity.com/israeli-couscous-kale-raisins/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/israeli-couscous-kale-raisins/#respond Sun, 14 Dec 2014 15:01:47 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3835 Israeli couscous (aka pearled couscous) is a larger, pea-shaped couscous with a chewy, substantive texture. It’s made from wheat or semolina flour and can be used in recipes that call for rice, or other types of whole grains. Technically a pasta, it’s somewhat bland on its own. But I like it because it cooks quickly, meaning […]

Raw Broccoli Salad with Tahini Dressinghttp://www.homemadelevity.com/raw-broccoli-salad-tahini-dressing/ http://www.homemadelevity.com/raw-broccoli-salad-tahini-dressing/#comments Sun, 07 Dec 2014 13:43:11 +0000 http://www.homemadelevity.com/?p=3816 I love the heartiness of cooked foods, but adding raw foods like slaws and salads to your plate can be so energizing. Many nutrients can be lost in the cooking process. But crucifers like broccoli are like tasty little detoxifiers that may be even more nutritionally potent when raw. This flavorful raw broccoli salad with […]

I’m a bit of a planner. Not because I love to plan, or that I can’t handle spontaneity. It just helps me feel that I have at least some control over my schedule. We all know what it’s like to endlessly push off tasks, let emails […]

This time of year, I feel like I’m surrounded by opportunities to overdo it. Between increased social obligations and abundant holiday specialty items, it seems like everywhere you turn there’s decadent food and drinks. Because of this, I sometimes need to remind myself to put my miso where […]
