Greek stuffed eggplant

One of the greatest things about living in London is being surrounded by people from so many different countries and cultures – which was exemplified by the wacky 6-person international house I lived in for my first year in London. While I enjoy snarky banter about hilarious differences in accents and idioms, and never miss…

Pasta Puttanesca

This is one of my go-to pasta sauce recipes whenever I want something quick, delicious and satisfying. And again, surprisingly healthy? I guess that’s just an inevitable side-effect of being vegetarian. This recipe also showcases some of my favorite ingredients: eggplant, the king of vegetables (in royal purple, of course), and the salty, vinegary flavors…

Basic hummus is super easy, but I always have…

Sun dried tomato and olive pesto – with linguine

Robert and I have made some pretty intense made-from-scratch recipes before, so this one was relatively simple in comparison. However, it is still very much…
