You Can Treat Radishes Like Little Potatoes

To most, radishes are a salad vegetable, and a good one at that. I really enjoy a raw radish—particularly dipped in butter with a pinch of salt—but a cooked radish is surprisingly delightful.Read more...

Turn Sad Winter Tomatoes into Delicious Roasted Salsa

At least once a year, desperate for the tiniest glimmer of spring, I buy the first crop of supermarket tomatoes that look even vaguely ripe. They are never anything but a total letdown, which means I end up regretting my purchase—and resenting those subpar tomatoes for suckering me in. Read more...

Water Is All You Need to Revive Soggy Vegetables

Many things in life get soggy when wet, like paper, or expensively blow-dried hair. But plants do not work this way. Water makes them plumper, crispier, crunchier. Understand this fact and you’ll never suffer soggy lettuce again. Read more...

Stop Calling Vegetable Planks 'Steaks'

I do not have a favorite food. In fact, I’m not sure how I would even go about classifying such a thing, as what I want to eat varies quite a bit depending on the situation I am in. But there is one food I have consistently eaten with enthusiasm from the moment I grew in teeth until now, and that food is steak.Read more...

Jenny Rosenstrach's Perfect Slaw

It was my father's birthday the other day and to celebrate, I used my Instant Pot to make the Korean-flavored brisket from Dinner in an Instant and it was astonishingly delicious and done in less than an afternoon. What?! (Yes, I am still in that annoying phase of Instant Pot ownership where I cannot get over how fast it is. People, meltingly tender, practically spoonable brisket! In less than three hours! I mean!) (I actually used Tafelspitz, because my butcher didn't have any Rinderbr...

Of Cabbages and Kings

How many people are genuinely excited to find cabbage on a menu? Not stuffed cabbage rolls or cabbage with corned beef, but just cabbage, dense green leaves alone, sans modifiers. In the US, I’d wager that number would fall somewhere in the lowest possible percentile rank, but that’s only because of inexperience taming the brassica. Take a trip out to Taiwan though, and you’d see very different polling results. Elevating a more diverse range of lesser loved greens as some might honor fine cuts o...

Make Any Veggie Sandwich Better by Treating It Like a Reuben

A reuben is not a reuben without corned beef, but that doesn’t mean that reuben toppings can’t be used to upgrade other, vegetable-heavy sandwiches, because vegetables is a good practice. Tangy Russian dressing, melted Swiss cheeses, and funky sauerkraut bring joy to everyone they hang out with, and vegetable lovers…Read more...

Finish Sautéed Greens With a Drizzle of Honey

Bitter flavors are often dismissed as undesirable, but a little bitterness can bring delicious nuance to an otherwise one-note plate. Bitter greens are particularly welcome alongside rich, salty dishes, and the best way to make them pop is with a drizzle of honey.Read more...

This Celery Root Gratin Is Perfect for Cold Days

We are right in the middle of the bad, seemingly never-ending portion of winter, and all I want to do is eat mountains of creamy carbohydrates. Obviously our three-ingredient potatoes au gratin would do just fine, but the noble spud isn’t the only root that takes well to a gratin-ing. Read more...

"'Rutabaga' comes from rotabagge, the plant’s Swedish name, meaning 'baggy root.'"

"This is, perhaps, the reason that it’s sometimes called a Swedish turnip or simply a swede. Dense and sweetly earthy, a spheroid that can grow to the size of a human head, with a mottled, brown-and-white surface and a buttery, yellow interior, the rutabaga looks like an overgrown turnip—which it is, sort of, at least on its mother’s side. A reproductive quirk of the Brassica genus allows for uncommonly easy hybridization (see the evidence in your local grocery store: kalettes, the frilly little...

Sustainable pencil stubs Sprout into plants

Have you ever stopped to think about where your pencil came from or what it’s journey will be once it hits the trash? It’s okay if you haven’t, because one company has made it their mission to not only produce eco-friendly pencils that are available in a variety of colors, but also to give new life at the end of the pencil’s functional usability. Sprout World began as an idea from MIT students on the lookout for a more sustainable pencil and has resulted in over 10 million pencil-to-plant prod...

Fry Eggs in Delicata Squash Rings

I love the “in-a-hole” genre of egg cooking, be that hole in a simple piece of white bread, a grilled cheese sandwich, or even a bell pepper. (The only member of this family I hate is an egg cooked in an avocado; not all holes are meant to be filled.) My new favorite is the delicata squash, specifically when pan fried…Read more...

Cottage Cheese Is the Best No-Cook Breakfast

I love to start my day with curds and whey; they’re filling, neutral enough to pair deliciously with a variety of plant parts, and (most importantly) speedy. A bowl of cottage cheese takes the same amount of time to prepare as a bowl of cereal, but will keep you fuller for much longer. (Also, if you top it with a…Read more...
