I know what you’re thinking. “Brussels sprouts? Really? Thanksgiving was a month ago.” I know, I was there. But it’s not my fault this charred Brussels sprouts recipe came to me four weeks too late - and I simply can’t wait until next November to share it with you. So I guess you’ll have to make it for Christmas, your office holiday party, or just a random upcoming Tuesday.This recipe evolved from the Balsamic Brussels Sprouts from Friendsgiving, which is, hands down, the most popular recipe in my book. I wanted to make it for a private cheffing gig I do . . .
This colorful beet side dish is inspired by one of my favorite restaurants in NYC's West Village.Whenever anyone asks me where to eat in New York City, my go-to answer is Rosemary's. It's an Italian restaurant with some of the best homemade pasta and focaccia I've ever had, along with local produce and pasture-raised meats. It's spacious - as compared to most West Village (my favorite eating neighborhood) restaurants - and has a cozy, rustic decor. In the daytime, it's flooded with natural light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, while in the evening, it's . . .
These cashew ricotta toasts are an awesome vegan party snack to add to your repertoire. Try them as a Thanksgiving appetizer!One of my favorite parts of writing Friendsgiving was developing and photographing the "Pre-Game" chapter. This section of the book is dedicated to that first hour of a party when your friends arrive - hungry, thirsty, and seemingly eager to help you finish up in the kitchen. As much as I love sharing food with friends, I don't always enjoy people helping me in the kitchen (it throws me off my game and prolongs the whole process, . . .
Looking for vegan Thanksgiving recipes? This creamy and comforting vegan potato gratin with cashew béchamel will be adored by everyone at your table.Scalloped potatoes, a.k.a.

I’m thrilled to partner with So Delicious, my favorite brand of dairy-free alternatives, to bring you this coffee oatmeal recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that support The New Baguette!Let's face it: oatmeal is not sexy. It’s not the crackly sourdough toast smothered in avocado, the golden-hued waffle with a pat of butter melting on top, nor the three-toned pastel smoothie with toppings (I mean, does anyone actually do that?!). What oatmeal is, though, is dependable, fast, satiating, good for you, and endlessly customizable. So maybe oatmeal just . . .
These vegan braised lentils with red wine call for just 5 ingredients, 1 pot, and 25 minutes of cooking time - perfect for weeknights or meal prep.Back when I used to work at Natural Gourmet Institute, I’d sit in on a lot of Chef’s Training Program classes. Mostly doing research for our cookbook (comin' atcha April 9, 2019!), and sometimes just because, but I’d always leave the room having learned something new: a new way to serve a classic dish, a vegan substitute for this or another thing, an exotic spice from a faraway place.One time, I audited the Beans . . .
This mujadara recipe is a classic Middle Eastern dish of cumin-scented brown rice and lentils with caramelized onions and garlicky yogurt.The only reason I know about Mujadara is because of my new friend, Ruba. I met Ruba in Syracuse at an art show organized by Rene’s grad school compatriots. She appeared to feel pretty out of place - which was perfect for me because I always feel out of place at art shows because despite having dated an artist for almost seven years, I still feel awkward AF at arty gatherings...So, I walked over and said hi. We started . . .
