40 Raw Vegan Recipes That Are Easy And Require No Cooking

Imagine a meal prep that wasn’t followed by any cooking. That’s what a raw vegan diet looks like. A raw vegan meal is void of much more than just animal products. It also gives up the heating process. To eat like a raw vegan, one must eat foods uncooked or exclusively heated below 118°F.

Sound kind of archaic? Maybe. But there’s reasoning behind consuming foods in their purest form. “Eating things in the raw state helps to protect the nutrient contents,” says Debbie Petitpain, MS, RDN, a media spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. When some foods are

The Endless Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking

By trade, I’m an omnivore. The only food rule I follow is that I eat everything, because anything can lead to deliciousness. Maybe it’s goat meat on the bone, cooked low and slow and served in a dark pool of its own cooking juices. Maybe it’s a bloomy wheel of cheese made from cashew milk, dense and creamy in the middle. If it’s good, I want it, and then I want seconds.

But when I cook at home, what I want more and more of is vegetables. Right now, this instant, I want long, skinny tongues of charred eggplant dressed

3 Vegetarian Recipes That Changed My Cooking

A few weeks ago, a friend sent me the cutest photo of her sweet, pudgy-cheeked baby eating a bit of kale-sauce pasta. The baby was in a high chair, grinning before the wreckage of her dinner — green sauce on her face and hands, bits of pasta up to her elbows. Now that baby knows how to enjoy her food, I thought with admiration.

Summer Vegetarian Dinners That Don’t Require Cooking

We are officially in the thick of summer, and in many parts of the country temps are soaring well above 90 degrees. Even if you have your air conditioning on full blast, the thought of turning the oven on or standing over a hot stove to cook can be torturous.

One of the many perks of plant-based protein is that it doesn’t have to be heated up—and some goes for all the beautiful produce that is in season right now. Nixing cooking out if the meal-making process cuts down on time, too. That makes the summer vegetarian dinners rounded

GREENFIELD — Since its inception last December, the Greenfield Public Library Cooking Circle has been a way for the community to connect virtually over a shared interest in cooking or baking.

“We were trying to find ways we could connect with our community virtually,” said Pamela McBride of the Greenfield Public Library. “Our first Cooking Circle was a cookie exchange. It was a lot of fun — we all got a lot of great cookie recipes.”

Since the winter holidays, the library has also hosted a soups and stews-themed Cooking Circle; a chocolate-themed Cooking Circle; and an Easter and Passover
