Roasted veggies are always delicious, but there’s something magical that happens to cauliflower in the oven. It gets so crispy and nutty, and that flavor is brought out even more with the spices here. If you are on the fence about cauliflower, try it prepared this way and you’ll become a believer. I’m happy to just eat a bowl of the cauliflower for dinner, but when I feel like making a truly proper meal out of it I nestle the cauliflower into tacos. The crunchy bits, spices and the meatiness of the cauliflower texture make these really satisfying. I have made these for large crowds and always get good reviews from young and old, vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike.
This recipe is from From Scratch.
My first book! From Scratch is a vegetarian cookbook intended for people just becoming comfortable in their
own kitchens. Just like with Good and Cheap, the
PDF is free.
Print copies are a pricier than you might expect because this book is printed on demand (1 copy at a time).
I’m out of town for the holidays so I though I’d share a few old classics that are nice at this time of year. These black bean, goat cheese, and chipotle enchiladas from my first cookbook, From Scratch may not be the simplest or quickest recipe, but they are so delicious. First, you roast the peppers and make the sauce, then you make the filling and then bake the enchiladas. Might seem like a lot of steps but it’s worth it for this super satisfying and decadent vegetarian main. And it’s fun to put together if you have a bit of time to slow down and putter around the kitchen. Keep reading

In an attempt to be organized and save myself time I had boiled some potatoes and then put them in the fridge, ready to eat when hunger struck. This is generally a great thing to do with root vegetables that need cooking before you can eat them. If you have them ready to go, you’re more likely to reach for them rather than going for the crackers or something.
Unfortunately, we haven’t been home much so my potatoes ended up languishing and were on the verge of going off one night when a burrito craving struck me. Rather than going out to buy a burrito or a bunch of extra ingredients I decided I could make a great burrito out of what I had around, including the potatoes. Keep reading
