If you’ve never cooked sautéed kale before, now’s the time to try it! It’s a versatile side dish, just as at home alongside a bowl of soup as it is next to a pile of pasta, but it’s also a fantastic cooking component. My recipe calls for 6 ingredients (3 of which are olive oil, salt, and pepper), and it cooks up in under 5 minutes. Because it’s so simple, it’s one of my go-to additions to clear-out-the-fridge frittatas, quick weeknight pastas, improvised grain bowls, and more. As an added bonus, it’s jam-packed with nutrients, and it tastes delicious. Kale […]

Garlic & Herb Sweet Potato Nourish Bowl (30 Minutes!)

Lately, I can’t get enough of romaine lettuce, which is weird considering a few months ago it was my least favorite green (next to iceberg). However, with the creation of our Vegan Caesar Salad with BBQ Sweet Potato Croutons, my love affair began, and it’s been going strong for months.

This is an iteration of that recipe, but with more decidedly Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean influences thanks to the addition of za’atar spice blend, hummus, and tahini (follow links for recipes and to learn about the origins of these ingredients).

If you’re an enchilada chicken fan, you’ll love these easy loaded sweet potatoes. The combination of spicy enchilada sauce with sweet potatoes is addictive! I love to top mine with cheddar cheese, sour cream, scallions, and cilantro. And if you haven’t made sweet potatoes in the slow cooker yet, you’ll never make them any other way – it’s my favorite way to cook them. They turn out so tender and delicious!

Southwestern corn chowder recipe

Make this Southwestern corn chowder for a cozy dinner at home! This vegetarian corn chowder recipe is fresh, wholesome and delicious. It’s perfect for cool late summer or fall evenings when fresh corn is at its peak. Or, you can make it any time with frozen corn.

I wanted the corn flavor to shine and balanced its sweetness with some Southwestern spice. You’ll find bell pepper, poblano and chili powder in this atypical chowder. I promise you will not miss the bacon.

corn chowder ingredients

I purposefully avoided using the heavy cream that you’ll find in most chowder recipes. Heavy cream has a tendency to dull flavors and also makes me feel weighed down. Instead, I blended a bit of butter into the soup (one of my favorite soup tricks) and stirred in some crème fraîche or sour cream at the end. These dairy ingredients offer some creaminess, of course, plus some tanginess that you won’t get from plain cream.

You can easily make this soup dairy free or vegan, if desired. You’ll love the end results either way!

If you like pancakes that are light, fluffy, moist, and flavorful (who doesn’t?!), you’re going to LOVE these almond flour pancakes! I had the idea to make them last spring, when Jack and I were saving our limited supply of regular flour for baking projects like pita, bagels, and no-knead bread. All-purpose flour is easier to come by now, but in our house, these almond flour pancakes are sticking around for good. This almond flour pancake recipe is totally grain and gluten-free, but it’s just as good as any traditional pancake recipe I’ve tried. The pancakes are soft and tender, […]

This comforting curry is inspired by our DIY green curry paste, which is a fusion of classic Thai green curry paste with flavors like lemongrass, garlic, and citrus, as well as whole spices like coriander and cumin seed.

I dreamt up this dish after making a dressing with this beloved green curry paste and pouring it over fresh kale, Instant Pot chickpeas, and perfect roasted potatoes. While delicious, I knew it would be next level if cooked and married with coconut milk.

Reuben Egg Rolls

A traditional Reuben usually consists of corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut served on rye bread with Russian dressing. It’s the ultimate deli sandwich. This fun variation, also known as the “Irish” egg roll, incorporates the classic sandwich filling into an egg roll wrapper. My Rueben-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin is another creative take on a Reuben.

If you have leftover egg roll wrappers, try some of my other egg roll recipes. These Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls and Avocado Egg Rolls are always a hit! If you have my latest cookbook Skinnytaste Meal Prep, you will love my Turkey Cheeseburger Egg Rolls! These fun egg rolls are great as an appetizer for a party or as lunch served with a side salad.

easy pizza sauce recipe

Make this lively red pizza sauce recipe for your homemade pizzas! It comes together with basic pantry ingredients in about five minutes, no cooking required. It’s like magic.

This recipe yields a classic Italian red sauce base for your home-baked pizza pies. Despite its quick preparation, this sauce tastes rich and full of flavor, which further develops during the pizza’s blast in a high-heat oven.

pizza sauce ingredients

I like my sauce to have a bit of texture to it, and this sauce strikes the perfect balance. Many pizza sauces are either thick and dull or watery and flavorless. Not this one.

I originally developed this sauce recipe for a pizza recipe in my cookbook, Love Real Food. Since I just re-shared my favorite pizza dough recipe, I’m providing my go-to pizza sauce to go along with it.

Both the dough and the sauce come together very quickly, so you can enjoy homemade pizza with minimal fuss. How about pizza tonight?
