9 Vegetarian BBQ, Burger, and Hot-Dog Recipes Even Meat-Lovers Will Enjoy | Washingtonian

By Ryan Weisser | May 20, 2015 Summer can be rough on vegetarians, who can get stuck eating only potato salad and popsicles at cookouts.

Vegetarians can happily crowd around the grill and wait for delicious plant-based burgers, pulled “pork” sammies, and veggie dogs made out of actual vegetables …

Lentils add protein and heartiness to vegetarian meals

Stefanie Angstadt – Thought for Food | April 22, 2015 Lentils are one of those great foods that are healthy and filling. As someone who eats a little meat, sometimes, depending on where it’s from, I have come to depend on lentils for a source of protein, flavor and heartiness in my cooking. Lentils are one of the earliest foods known to humans, and perhaps they’ve stuck around because of their outstanding health benefits. They contain cholesterol-lowering fiber, help manage blood-sugar …

Nigel Slater’s five vegetarian recipes | Life and style | The Guardian

The oven has been busy this week – baking spiced aubergines, trays of roast vegetables with eggs and a layered dish of dal and sweet potatoes.

Weeknight Vegetarian: A dose of soup from a vegetable-loving German chef – The Washington Post

If you had asked me this time last year whether I considered German to be a particularly vegetarian-friendly cuisine, I would have laughed. My opinion wouldn’t have been based on any actual travel to Germany, only on some limited experiences in German restaurants (including mounds of smoked sausages ingested in central Texas). But since when does the lack of substantive research get in the way of a knee-jerk reaction? Anyhow, that was all before I knew the name Tim Mälzer. He’s a chef, …

Now is the best time for some greens

So often when we talk about salads, we apologize. If we bring a salad to a potluck, we play down our contribution. If we serve salad for dinner, we regret that it isn’t more substantial. If a co-worker asks what we ate for lunch and the answer is leafy, green and dressed with vinaigrette, we say, “Oh, just a salad.” We take salads for granted, as cooks and as eaters. We undervalue them for their potential for sustenance and satiation, but also for the care they require in the …

A vegetarian in France | LearnEnglishTeens

I absolutely love French cuisine, and the food available in the south of France is one of the highlights of living here so far. Ingredients are good quality, fresh and very tasty, and eating in restaurants (although more expensive than I am used to) is an amazing experience! Even at tiny corner shops or bakeries, the vegetables are locally sourced and the bread was baked that very morning. This country does not survive on microwave meals, ready-made sauces and takeaways. However, the only …

Vegetarian Thanksgiving: Rice, Beet and Kale Salad With Cider Dressing – NYTimes.com

Vegetarian tagine recipe will make believers out of carnivores | The Miami Herald

Since I grew up in a half-Sephardic household, traditional Jewish foods meant to me something different from what they meant to my mainly Ashkenazi Hebrew school classmates. Sephardim are Jews that settled in Southern Europe and Northern Africa after the Diaspora . Ashkenazi Jews are from Eastern Europe and Russia, and they make up the vast majority  of the American Jewish population. As opposed to heavily Russian-influenced  Ashkenazi fare, Sephardic food takes on a Mediterranean flavor, …
