Southern Fried Tofu with Sweet Potatoes — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, April 25th, 2016

Southern Fried Tofu with Sweet PotatoesIt’s no secret that vegetarians love tofu — after all, it gives a boost of protein to meals that would otherwise be lacking — but, believe it or not, even the meat eaters among us can and should enjoy the benefits of tofu. Yes, it’s chock-full of protein, meaning that it will keep you full. But beyond the functionality of it and into flavor, it’s a culinary blank canvas, which means that you can pair it with seemingly countless ingredients to complete your meal. When you’re shopping for tofu, keep an eye out for the different kinds of available. While silken tofu can be blended into smoothies, the firm and extra-firm kinds can star in soup, or be treated like hunks of meat, as they do in the recipe from Food Network Magazine pictured above.

by in Recipes, April 18th, 2016

Farro with Cheese and HerbsI’d like to introduce you to your new favorite grain, farro. Similar in taste and texture to barley, this hearty Italian ingredient is prepared just as you’d make rice, by boiling it, and is a culinary blank canvas of sorts — you can pair it with countless other flavors, just as you can quinoa or couscous. While you can indeed make a batch of farro while you’re planning the week’s meals on Sunday and count on it starring in simple salads for a few days thereafter, you can also turn the heat up on farro and serve it in a hot casserole, as Giada De Laurentiis has done in her recipe for Farro with Cheese and Herbs.

Chunky Egg Salad — Meatless Monday

by in Recipes, March 21st, 2016

Chunky Egg SaladWhere there’s Easter, there are eggs, right? If you find yourself with a refrigerator overflowing with hard-boiled eggs — pastel-colored or otherwise — ahead of Sunday’s holiday and don’t know what to do with them all, look no further than an easy-to-prep egg salad.

Instead of turning out a goopy, light-yellow mixture, this good-for-you recipe for Chunky Egg Salad (pictured above) promises next-level results with light, fresh flavors. The key to this recipe is slicing the eggs coarsely; instead of mashing them or finely dicing them, simply slice the hard-boiled eggs into sixths so the whites and yolks are still visible. When it comes to the dressing, keep it simple and classic with a cool, creamy combination of mayonnaise and whole-grain mustard. Fragrant dill adds a welcome bite of freshness, while crunchy celery delivers the texture you crave. To make the salad into a satisfying meal, serve it in sandwiches or feature it in a salad.
