lemony herb “orzotto” with garlicky chickpeas

by Jackie Newgent  |  February 7, 2021  |  7 Comments
This 100% plant-based, lemony herb “orzotto” with garlicky chickpeas is the perfect dish for any day of the year, including World Pulses Day (which is Feb 10th, by the way). It features my favorite pulse … chickpeas. What’s your fave? I’m a big, big, BIG fan of chickpeas (and all other pulses, for that matter!) since they’ve got the trifecta of good tasting + good for you + good for the planet! And they’re extra tasty when served in this “orzotto” recipe.

rosemary roasted potato “chips” with truffle hot sauce

by Jackie Newgent  |  January 17, 2021  |  0 Comments
These rosemary roasted potato “chips” with truffle hot sauce are my answer to comforting, “un-fancy” food right now! They’re the extra-tasty result of jumbling up the concepts of truffle fries, thick-cut potato chips, and rosemary roasted potatoes. Even though they’re roasted, not fried, they’re still oh so indulgent; so perhaps don’t eat them at every single one of your meals. Try your best to share them, too. (I admit, I’m not so good with that!) And be sure to look for a bottle of truffle hot sauce (OK, so that’s a little fancy!) to drizzle them with (try these brands: The Truffleist or TRUFF) — that’s my absolute favorite part! While the sauce is pricey, it lasts a long, long...

my favorite plant-based chocolate chip cookies

I’ve shared so, so, so, soooo many of my recipes throughout my cookbooks, food company projects, social media, and this blog; but my favorite plant-based chocolate chip cookies recipe is one that I’ve been holding on to for some reason. Until now! I figure whipping up a batch of comforting cookies is at least one tiny way to end the year on a bit of a sweet note after a year that was … in food terms … rancid and rotten. So here you go!

warm peanut noodles with cool confetti veggies

by Jackie Newgent  |  December 4, 2020  |  1 Comment
I can’t go a week without eating some kind of noodle dish, like these warm peanut noodles with cool confetti veggies! And while I generally just whip up a no-recipe-required bowl of noodles with whatever ingredients I have on hand, this is one of my favorite Thai-inspired versions. I made sure to write down exact measurements of what I generally do, so I can now share. This recipe is soy-free, gluten-free (depending on your noodle pick), and 100% plant-based. Most importantly, these warm peanut noodles with cool confetti veggies are 100% yummy!

cashew cheese bruschetta with pear-thyme “compote”

by Jackie Newgent  |  October 22, 2020  |  1 Comment
We might be on our way to a long winter, which is precisely why you’ll want to regularly craft a platter of party-ready apps, like these cashew cheese bruschetta with pear-thyme “compote!” In fact, I think it’s mentally healthy to have “parties” more often during times like these. That can mean tossing a virtual soiree or having one with your own social (yet socially-distanced!) “bubble.” Even if a party of one, make up the toasts and toppings separately, then top one at a time.
