As a Jersey girl, I grew up on chicken cacciatore and this vegan version is bringing me right back. Spicy and a bit saucy, this Spicy Vegan Tempeh Cacciatore is the perfect plant based dinner that practically tastes like your Italian grandma made it. This is quick, easy, extra colorful, super flavorful, and so delicious. The perfect dinner to serve any night of the week.
In the depths of winter, a meal like this excites me.
Because if there is one time of year that we crave saucy goodness, it is the cold depths of January. I always end up making warm stews and soups to try and help me get through this difficult time in my existence. Even this dish, however, takes the cake from me because it brings me right back to Jersey.
Bet you didn’t know this side of me, did ya?

Spaghetti Squash with Kale Pesto Hummus might be a side dish, an appetizer, or an entree, but it is definitely a home run if you ask me! Once you try hummus on pasta (especially this hummus!) you might not go back!
Quite honestly, now that we are in the throws of December, I am looking for all the cold weather goodness that I can cozy up to a fire to. Well, not exactly if I am honest. More like I’m streaming a yule log on a television set!
Yeah, that is probably more like it.

This Creamy White Bean Quinoa Risotto is the perfect meatless main for those cozy nights. Make it part of your holiday spread or bring it to a Friendsgiving potluck. It might become a part of your latest tradition
Can you believe we are so darn close to Thanksgiving? Yeah me neither. Yet, I have said this time and again on this platform that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It’s a holiday for cooking with the focus being all on family. Plus, I have to say that Thanksgiving food blows all other foods out of the water
I hope we can agree on that!

It’s the start… the start of fall. Time to let your basic out.
You know that I came to terms with last week? That there are zero pumpkin recipes on The Cutting Veg site. I know. I was as shocked as you are. So, like the good food blogger that I am, with fall coming around the corner, I had to bring ya at least one pumpkin recipe…
You know. Before the pitchforks come out.

Y’all, let us just eat this harvest pasta sauce for the rest of our lives? Is that cool?
I love the autumnal harvest pasta sauce from Trader Joe’s. However, that ish has heavy cream, which means I’ll be not feeling so hot if I eat it. So I set off on a quest to copycat the sauce, but take out all the dairy. The pasta sauce has all of your favorite fall flavors, is super cozy, and reinvigorates my love affair with butternut squash so yes, YA KNOW SHE IS A WINNER. It tastes just like the real thing.
How easy was that?

Roasted stuffed zucchini. A healthy vegetarian recipe of tomato, feta, and orzo stuffed inside a grilled pesto zucchini. This quick and easy dish is perfect for spring and summer days and doubles as a healthy dinner or simple side dish.
Or as I like to call it, summer’s last stand.
We love a summer time recipe over here and, luckily for you and for me, it’s gonna feel like summer for the next month over here in Philly. So I made doubly sure that I get all da summertime flava in my body before winter comes and ruins it.
Seriously, don’t come at me, but winter ruins everything.

We love a pickled eggplant situation. Yes I promise I’ll get you hooked too!
If there is one thing you should love about me, I love a pickle situation. I used to go to falafel places in Israel just to get some pickles. I always get the pickle situation at my favorite hummus place in the city. Heck I put pickled onions on everything. But if you don’t like eggplant, don’t let the title scare you… because you can barely tase the eggplant in said dish.

Pretty much the only way I will eat olives, if I’m being honest here.
I don’t know what it is, but the combination of all the salty olives, capers, and cheese tossed together in olive oil and garlic makes for the most delicious sauce for all the pasta in the land. Could you even imagine… all the pasta in the land? Plus, who doesn’t think a salty week can be made better by having a big old bowl of carbs.
Salty week… see what I did there?

It’s a fiesta over here!
I know kale always gets the short end of the stick in the “food” world. First, she was a garnish. Then, she was the ridicule of health food world. BUT, y’all, if you think you don’t like kale salads, then you haven’t LIVED until you tried marinating it in lime juice and lots of spice.
Trust me… I will convert you. That didn’t sound sketchy at all.
