Kale Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons & Kalamata Caesar Dressing

Kale Caesar Salad with Tofu Croutons & Kalamata Caesar Dressing

Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

I pride myself on creating vegetarian recipes that even hardcore carnivores will love. This kale Caesar salad, well … it’s a bit of an exception. It really doesn’t even try. The thing is, I personally think it’s really kind of incredible, so the meat-eaters that turn their nose up at this one are, in my opinion, totally missing out.

Well, hey! More for us.

It’s the most-asked question for vegetarians: “How do you get enough protein?”

The fact is, it’s easy to get enough protein in your diet – human protein requirements are not as crazy-complicated as many folks believe.

That said, I’ve come to the recent realization that, for me, I need more. It helps me feel satisfied; it keeps me full for longer. And thus, I eat less overall. Which, for a gal who’s always fought her weight, is a pretty big deal.

Lemons on pizza? Like, rind and all?! I know, I know, I totally know. I wasn’t sure about it, either.

Even after I took my first bite, I wrinkled my nose a bit. It was … sort of bitter and weird. But then I kept going. That sour/tart, astringent taste soon became addicting – before I knew it, I couldn’t get enough.

You know, I feel a little guilty about this (shock – I’m a mom who feels guilty), but quite possibly my favorite part of the day is naptime.

I feel guilty because, you know, my favorite times should be while I’m basking in the glow of a toddler hug, or oohing and mmm-ing over a wedge of plastic pizza, or reading Rainbow Fish and answering important compound questions like “What’s fishy doing?! What’s shark doing?? What’s the water doing?!”

Welcome to pure unadulterated cheesiness. Pure unadulterated deliciousness. Pure unadulterated awesomeness. I’m realizing I actually have no idea what “adulterated” means. I hope it doesn’t mean gross, because now I’m committed.

Here, my friends, I offer you an Artichoke Arugula Pesto Grilled Cheese. Pure unadulterated, um, lunch.

‘Tis the season … for colds and flu, that is. Our house is recovering from a doozy of a bug right now, and I got the worst of it. It’s been a full week, and my appetite is still all but nonexistent.

Strange how foods from childhood creep back into your consciousness when you’re sick. For me, one of the only foods I’ve been able to think about for the past week (without wanting to hurl) is Campbell’s chicken noodle soup. Briny, salty, comforting.

I had a different recipe planned for today, but it was going to involve some work this weekend … and an evil little stomach bug had different plans for me. But you don’t want to know anything more about that.

I was actually going to save this Thai Green Curry Lentil Soup for March. Even though it’s not really all that green, with its green lentils and green curry, I thought it would still be perfect for the holiday that’s all about green – St. Patrick’s Day. But I’ve been eager to share it with you for awhile now, so this ended up being a great excuse.

Spicy Black Bean Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise

Spicy Black Bean Sliders with Chipotle Mayonnaise

I’ve gotta admit, I’ve always found the word “sliders” to be a little … gross. It just makes me think of grease upon grease which, of course, aids greatly in the action of unhinging one’s jaw to gulp an entire miniburger in one fell swoop.

But ignore what I’ve just said please, because these black bean sliders are not greasy nor gross (nor could you swallow one whole, for that matter, unless you’re a snake or a freak of nature).

They’re delicious, easy, meatless, and perfect for game day, sure. But definitely not gross.
