Today’s recipe? It’s all the things you love about a taco, in salad form. Tempeh taco salad – crushed tortilla chips bring the crunch, black beans and crumbled tempeh coated with taco seasoning brings the substance, and a strong, smoked paprika-apple cider dressing pulls everything together. It’s a meal in itself, and most of the components can be prepared ahead of time, making this salad a good option for weeknight dinners and potlucks. You can see how it comes together in the taco salad how-to video below. Enjoy!

Taco Salad Variations

As I mention in the video, I like to tweak this salad throughout the seasons. Cherry tomatoes (raw or roasted) or grilled zucchini are great in summer, roasted squash or mushrooms are great in the fall. Basically, if you start with the bean & tempeh base, plus the romaine and dressing, you can build and adjust from there – a big dollop of guacamole is always good.

More Salads!

There are so many great salads in the archives, so be sure to poke around. I love this Genius Kale Salad, this Sriracha Rainbow Noodle Salad, these Garlic Lime Lettuce Wraps, and this Grilled Wedge Salad. Also, here’s where you can find the list of all past salad recipes. Enjoy!

More Tempeh!

I really enjoy tempeh in this taco salad (and so many other ways!). If you’re tempeh-curious and looking to try a couple recipes that are absolutely delicious, here are my picks. Don’t skip this Spicy Tempeh Crumble Bowl inspired by Andrea Nguyen, I make it a few times a month, and it’s incredible. I also love this Orange Pan-glazed Tempeh, and of course, another vote for the Lettuce Wraps.

Has This Pasta ‘Hack’ Gone Too Far?

Spaghetti can be a divisive food. Just ask Italians. Every once in a while, a recipe comes along that causes traditionalists to bristle, to seethe at unwarranted alterations. To some the inclusion of ham in a spaghetti carbonara may seem mundane, to others it’s downright apocalyptic.

There is, however, a new spaghetti trick causing more mayhem than usual. It appears in a video that began making the rounds first on Facebook and then on Twitter where it caused quite the stir. Let’s break it down.

How Samin Nosrat Is Helping Kids Try Every Kind of Food

Netflix’s newest food show, Waffles + Mochi, follows the adventures of a puppet with waffles for ears (hence the name) and her friend, a small ball of mochi (hence the name), as they taste their way around the world. The show premieres on the streaming platform today.

The show is anchored by Michelle Obama, who plays the owner of a supermarket where Waffles and Mochi work. Each episode centers around a single ingredient, or cooking technique, and sees the duo meeting with an array of chefs, celebrities, and celebrity chefs. Samin Nosrat is one such chef who visits the pair and dives right in to the joys of cooking, eating, and gardening. I spoke with her in advance of the show’s premiere to learn about her involvement and what makes Waffles + Mochi the must-see program of the moment for everyone (not just kids).

Padma Lakshmi’s Prized Family Recipe: Crispy Masala Dosas With Coconut Chutney

Padma Lakshmi poses a difficult question to her daughter, Krishna, in the third episode of her new Hulu docu-series, Taste the Nation: “Do you prefer American pancakes to dosas?” Dosa being the paper-thin, crispy-edged, savory South Indian crepes made of ground lentils and rice flour that she grew up eating three of in one sitting, and American pancakes being the fluffy stacks topped with butter and syrup. After some deliberation, Krishna replies, “I like pancakes...but I think I prefer dosas to waffles.”

Lakshmi has dealt with the duality of her food identities as an Indian-American person since she moved to the States when she was four years old. The pitting of dosas—which are her most nostalgic, homey comfort food—against the diner staple isn’t something she does often. Instead, she makes room for both in her Sunday brunches at home with her daughter, and applies that mindset to the rest of her life too. She doesn’t have to choose to be Indian or American on any given day.

Like many people who’ve reached the threshold of quarter-age, I can no longer get a decent night’s sleep. Be it lying awake with my eyelids jammed shut until 2 a.m., or a case of 4 a.m. anxiety, it’s a genuine struggle to get a fulfilling 8 hours.

The Viral Croissant-Making Video We Can’t Stop Watching

Get this: A croissant takes 30 hours to make. Not 4 hours (the running time of the 2018 Oscars ceremony), not 12 hours (a flight from London to Singapore), not even 24 hours (the duration of a day for Monica Aldama, the star of Netflix’s Cheer and the award-winning coach of the Navarro cheer team). No, no, it takes 6 hours more than the sun’s rotation around the earth for my favorite pastry to be made from start to finish.

How do I know this fact? Because this video made by the lovely crew at Le Marais Bakery in San Francisco, taught me this fact.
