seasonal cherry tomato hummus bowl

by Jackie Newgent  |  September 22, 2019  |  0 Comments
I’ve been busy, busy, busy lately. I’m sure you can relate. I know for some folks that might mean getting take-out. For me, it means lots of hummus bowls. Basically, that’s hummus topped with whatever you have on hand that you think might taste good with hummus! I always call this concept a “bowl,” but I’ll serve it on a plate if I don’t have that much to top it with. This seasonal cherry tomato hummus bowl is one of those such “bowls” … and a super easy one at that.

veggie & red lentil rotini pasta bowl

by Jackie Newgent  |  January 30, 2017  |  0 Comments
If you’ve got about 15 minutes, make this veggie pasta bowl! That’s what I often do when I’m short on time for dinner! But vegetarian pasta dishes don’t always provide enough protein for a complete meal. So, here’s what I like to do: Use a pasta made from red lentils. I love, love, love lentils for so many reasons, including that the little pulses are packed with plant protein and can help play a role in regulating blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels! (By the way, I chose Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Pasta here, which I picked up at Whole Foods Market.) Hope you try this meal-in-one pasta bowl on Meatless Monday–and beyond. It’s not fancy, but it’s flavorful! Enjoy!...

vintage veggie abundance bowl

by Jackie Newgent  |  October 22, 2016  |  0 Comments
Like leftovers? I do! In fact, sometimes I enjoy leftover vegetable dishes more than when originally made. Part of that may be because I consider leftovers as “vintage” cuisine! The other is because I may spend less time actively cooking. Since this month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Plant Protein Power Bowls,” it’s a perfect time to share with you one of my bowls using “vintage” veggies. I made this one with extra Seasonal Butternut Squash Hash Browns. I stir hemp seeds into the brown rice to significantly pump up the plant-based protein. And I finish it with a little touch of goat cheese for a touch of creamy decadence. (Hint: You can swap that for cashew cheese if you prefer to...

juice-infused quinoa salad with pistachios

by Jackie Newgent  |  July 11, 2016  |  0 Comments
“How can I make quinoa taste good?” I’ve been asked that question a lot! Here’s one answer to that. Use juice as the cooking liquid! Try a juice that’s a flavorful blend of fruit and veggie juices with no added sugar. It’ll pump up the nutritional value to superfood levels. Plus, it’ll provide color and memorable flavor. Here I used a juice that’s a blend of carrot, apple and lemon juices, ginger puree, and coriander. But you can simply use plain carrot or orange juice if you have that on hand. (Hint: Alternatively, you can use half juice and half water as the cooking liquid for a lighter touch!) Then, to add herbal fragrance, I’ve included fresh basil. For pops...

kale & couscous breakfast bowl with egg

by Jackie Newgent  |  June 21, 2016  |  5 Comments
In honor of the Recipe Redux’s June birthday, I’ve chosen a fellow ReDuxer’s recipe for inspiration. The original recipe is 5-Ingredient Healthy Kale and Quinoa Bowl by Kara Lydon, “The Foodie Dietitian.” I appreciate her straightforward, holistic, plant-based approach to recipe creation that appeals to everyday cooks. Plus, Kara’s photography is beautiful. Her quinoa bowl recipe has just five main ingredients. Love the simplicity! I went for a breakfast interpretation of Kara’s recipe—aiming to make the recipe in 20 minutes or less, since most of us simply don’t have the luxury of time to whip up a lengthy morning meal. I opted for whole-wheat couscous in place of quinoa to speed things up. I added lemon zest to heighten citrusy...
