Watch the video below to learn how to roast eggplant and see how easy it is to put together this middle eastern-inspired dish.I think we can all agree that eggplant is a polarizing vegetable. It's not your universally-loved tomato and, even in spite its raunchy emoji reputation, it still doesn't have the sex appeal of the fashionable avocado. But I would like to take a moment to prove all the eggplant-haters wrong. Hear me out...Many people steer clear of eggplant because it can be watery, bitter, greasy, and/or bland - and to be fair, these reasons are . . .
This summer farro salad is a great way to use up a bounty of fresh vegetables and greens.How do you approach dinner? Do you write out one of those Instagram-worthy meal plans for the week? (Go you!) Or just cook the first thing that comes to mind? For me, it all revolves around what vegetables are staring back at me when I open the fridge. Whether they’re seasonal beauties from the farmers market, something I miraculously grew in our garden (hallelujah, baby Jesus - I think I’m finally getting the hang of it), or whatever I got at Wegmans, the vegetables decide . . .
This tahini dressing recipe could not be any easier to make - just place the ingredients in a blender and puree! The one thing I never, ever buy at the grocery store is bottled dressing. Most dressings on store shelves are made with poor quality oils, tons of unnecessary sweeteners, emulsifiers, preservatives, and artificial ingredients - not to mention that most of them taste... well, not good. If you're housing any store-bought dressing in your fridge right now, walk on over there, pick up the bottle, read the ingredients, and if you don't recognize the words, take . . .
This summery potato salad without mayo is inspired by Kismet, a trendy all-day cafe in Los Angeles.Last spring, Rene got to spend the semester in an art residency in Los Angeles. While I wouldn’t want to conduct my relationship on a bicoastal basis again, visiting my boyfriend in LA in April was a fun perk. And all the amazing meals we had there definitely softened the blow of a long-distance relationship… well, as much as they could, anyway.LA has been overshadowing NYC as the country’s best food city for a while now and last spring, it really felt like it . . .
This soba noodle bowl is one of my go-to recipes for when Rene and I are in the mood for something Asian-ish and noodle-y, which is, roughly, most of the time.Apparently there is an old tradition in Japan of giving new neighbors soba noodles as a welcoming, “hope we get along!” kind of gift. Hikkoshi soba (moving soba) was a custom practiced from the 17th through the 19th century, when people often lived in communal dwellings and it was especially important that they didn’t hate each other.I learned this two weekends ago from my dad, while we were . . .
I’m thrilled to partner with So Delicious, my favorite brand of dairy-free alternatives, to bring you this story and savory yogurt recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that support The New Baguette! If a Ukrainian person ever refers to “salad”, nine times out of ten they mean a mixture of cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, and dill. Growing up, this salad made up about fifty percent of our summertime diet - partly because cucumbers and tomatoes were wildly abundant, and partly because the salad was the most delicious thing you could eat. Ukrainian cucumbers are so . . .
Inspired by Greek gigantes plaki, these easy braised beans are cooked in the oven with tomato sauce and oregano.Beans. Creamy, tender, cozy beans. I absolutely love them - in grain bowls, soups, mashed on toast, or topped with a fried egg - and eat them almost every day. Unfortunately, as far as many other folks are concerned, beans are like, the most unsexy food in the world. Is it because of the gas? I guess people are terrified of having gas...? It is weird that I'm talking about gas on my food blog? Let's get the gas thing out of the way...Yes, eating . . .
