Dal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

It is here! It is finally here!

I know I have been promising y’all a dal recipe for some time. And I have finally got around to posting about it. I know it makes absolutely no sense for me to be posting a warm, stew-like creature of a meal during some of the hottest days we have had thus far, but I cannot help myself! It is just so rich, so filling, and yet made of wholesome ingredients.

Plus, when warm stew-like creations ever¬†stop me before? I’m melting and still rocking this.

Roasted Eggplant and Chickpeas with Tahini Yogurt

Aka how I can make it an excuse to eat yogurt sauce for dinner.

Before we get into the particulars, let us get ourselves casually acquainted with your new favorite meal for spring and summer. And honestly, you guys, it is crazy to me how the littlest things can inspire some of my favorite meals. Seriously, everything I see on a daily basis can inspire a recipe. In fact, some of my favorite recipe ideas have come while I was computer coding

Cannot get more different than that!

Coconut Beans and Greens with Sriracha Cashews

I am the kind of person who craves hot coffee in 95 degree weather.

Likewise, I am the kind of person who loves a big, steaming bowl of beans even as the temperature warms up. We are in awkward times, in the beginning of April, with the temperature balmy enough to wear cutoffs one moment and then raining and dropping 40 degrees the next.

The only thing comforting in this situation is a big pile of carbs.

Roasted Carrot Soba with Miso Cashew Cream

March can be considered a tale of two months
On the one hand, there is all that beer and Irish potatoes (oh YES). Ugh seriously, I could dream about the bombardment of coconut and cinnamon Irish potatoes. And, after about 8 weeks of dieting, this is usually where a lot of people decide to forgo that protein shake for chocolate cake. Now, you might think it is bizarre that I am pushing for chocolate cake. But I like to keep it real with y’all and it can’t be any realer than a slice of molten lava cake.
Oh yeah. That ooze. Come to mama.

Saag Paneer Pizza

Can you tell I am on a palak paneer kick? Actually I always am on a palak paneer kick!

Indian spices are my FAV. Cheese is my fav. Carbs are my fav. So when I can merge all three together, I’m def going to do it! This is the perfect thing to eat on a Monday. I mean, think about it. The work week can be so intimidating. And even by Monday night, I am incredibly exhausted. Luckily, for you and for me and for this world, we have a quick and easy pizza for those days. And it is DAMN good, you guys.

I’m seriously convinced that pizza is the manna that God was talking about.

Vegan Palak Paneer

Who said the healthiest recipes had to be salad? Seriously?

Because, you guys, we are heading into the home stretch of winter! And I know you are struggling to keep up with those New Year’s resolutions that you cannot bear to have another plate of cold vegetables. Let’s be real, the saddest thing to be ever said about a meal is it is another plate of cold vegetables.

Except I am a total freak and love me a good crudite platter. No? Whatever, more cold veggies for me!

Chickpea Peanut Stew with Cucumber Raita

This post is sponsored by Wild Friends and Nancy’s Yogurt

Oh my just LOOK at this setup.

If you have been following me on Instagram or reading my recipes, I think y’all recognize that I LOVE me a good stew. Even in the summer, when everyone else just wants salad or some grilled chicken, I say bring on those roasty toasty kind of meals. Those meals that taste good sitting in fridge for a couple of days, the spices all mulling about for and playing off of each other. Those meals where you enjoy them more sitting in your leggings crossed legged on the couch with your fav blanket. Oh yeah.

It gets me tickled just THINKING about it.

Chickpea Coconut Curry with Goat Cheese Polenta

‚ÄčLet’s get out of our comfort zone. By getting into our comfort zone.

I have grown up eating Indian food for most of my life. It is pretty much my favorite thing to eat (Spicy Sarah was my nickname in high school). My dad always loved taking me to the Indian buffet for lunch in our town, when pre-vegetarian me would load up on totally authentic butter chicken (blessed be he). Even though I am vegetarian, making my own indian food (and even gobbling up Trader Joe’s Chana Masala) makes for some of my favorite meals. And for me, nothing scream comfort quite like a big old warm bowl of dahl or curry chocked full of chickpeas or lentils.

I swear I have curry powder running through my veins. My yellow tinged veins.

Tandoori Turmeric Tofu Bowls

Say hello to your new Christmas tradition.

Or let us be real: this bowl can be an ANYTIME tradition. It is getting to be that time of the year where all I want are foods containing as many warming spices as possible. Do you know what I am talking about? We’re talking about punching up everything we know and love with turmeric, cardamon, cumin, cinnamon, and curry powder.Just trying to warm ourselves here inside and out.

It’s not even winter and I am already an ice cube.
