These stuffed peppers aren’t the kind your mom made. They’re meatless and loaded with fresh flavor. They’re cheesy as shown, yes, but the cheese is actually non-essential. You can easily make these peppers dairy free or vegan.

I was inspired to incorporate some of my favorite Mexican ingredients, including pinto beans, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, lime, chili powder and cumin. The filling is so tasty, I could eat it as a side dish! These peppers are somewhat time consuming, but each element is simple to make.

stuffed pepper ingredients

The trick to making great stuffed peppers is to slice the peppers in half from the stem end down through the base. Then, pre-roast the halves until they’re tender and a bit caramelized at the sliced edges. This way, their flavor is condensed and their texture is just right—not too crisp, but not falling apart.

Please do yourself a favor and cook extra brown rice while you’re at it. Then, you’ll be one step closer to dinner tomorrow night—say, Extra Veggie Fried Rice or any of these rice-based dishes. High five!

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?

As a vegetarian for over a decade, I’ve eaten quite a few veggie pizzas. Truly fantastic veggie pizzas are few and far between. So, I combined all of the elements I’ve enjoyed over the years to create my own “ultimate” veggie pizza pie. This is the best homemade veggie pizza I’ve ever had, and I hope you’ll say the same!

This vegetarian pizza recipe will delight vegetarians and carnivores alike. It’s fresh and full of flavor, featuring cherry tomatoes, artichoke, bell pepper, olives, red onion and some hidden (and optional) baby spinach. You’ll find a base of rich tomato sauce and golden, bubbling mozzarella underneath, of course.

veggie pizza ingredients

The trick with loaded veggie pizzas, as many pizza shops seem to forget, is that they require a few extra minutes in the oven to develop full flavor and structure. Don’t stop baking until the cheese is deeply golden in spots. Otherwise, you might end up with floppy pizza that doesn’t live up to its true potential.

Start with my easy whole wheat pizza dough, and this recipe is ready in about 45 minutes, start to finish. This veggie pizza is quicker and healthier than delivery!

Super caramely onions, bursting tomato gems, lots of fresh basil ribbons and of course – parmesan. Because life is nothing without cheese! 

This is late summer in a skillet. 

caramelized onions and cherry tomatoes

In case you haven’t noticed, this has basically been the year of caramelized onions for me. I mean, sure, I’ve used them in many recipes over the last decade, but this year I’ve really gone over the top.

And I can only assume that’s because we have so much time at home, that right now I’m like “oh, I have to caramelize onions for 30 minutes? Sweet! Something to do!”

You know?

caramelized onions and burst cherry tomatoes

Anyway, that’s why I don’t feel terribly awful about sharing so many recipes recently that require you to caramelize onions for a half hour before you really make the meal.

Promise promise it’s worth it.

So I know I just gave you a whole spiel about the onions taking quite a while, but other than that, this is such a quick and easy pasta. It’s one that comes together in a matter of minutes once the onions are caramelized and the tomatoes have popped. Throw the ingredients in the skillet and check them every so often. That’s all it takes!

There are a few major flavor players here in this skillet:

The caramelized onions, of course. They have so much sweet and savory flavor that I can’t help but use them in everything.

Burst cherry tomatoes! The best of summer, adding a little acid and a bit more sweet to the skillet.

Fresh basil, for an herby, refreshing pop.

And parmesan. Nutty and buttery and savory all in the one. It brings everything together and tastes so lovely.

Any pasta you love works here. Any shape, any kind. This is my idea of a perfect meatless meal, but it can also be a great side dish too. Or a pot luck dish, you know, when we can do that again in ten years. It’s even tastes good when it’s cold.

The leftovers are TOPS. The flavors just marry together even more in the fridge and taste incredible.

We have a surplus of tomatoes this summer, and it’s glorious. I dreamed up this simple tomato salad recipe to make use of the excess. I simply sliced ripe tomatoes into bite-sized pieces, then I added some crisp red onion, lots of fresh basil, and drizzled it all with olive oil and good balsamic vinegar.

The end result is so delicious! This salad really lets raw, peak-season tomatoes shine. The recipe is also quite versatile, so you’ll never tire of it. Try adding some cucumber, mozzarella, avocado, arugula or even peaches.

Serve this tomato salad as a fresh, healthy side salad to any summer meal. It’s best when it’s freshly made, so I recommend cutting the recipe in half if you’re not serving a crowd.

I grew heirloom tomatoes from seed for the first time this spring. It was a fun process that proved easier than expected. In fact, I underestimated how many of the seeds would sprout. I grew so many tomato plants that we filled our family’s three garden plots and passed along the extra to friends.

Strangely enough, our growing tomato plants have provided a sense of continuity and hope during a tumultuous year. I’ll do it all again next spring, but maybe leave some room for more peppers and cucumbers. Or maybe I need a bigger garden plot. I think I’m hooked!
