Tempeh-Broccoli Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce

Vegetable Paella

Traditional Spanish paella is a dish of meats, seafood, vegetables, and rice cooked in saffron and other seasonings. Authentic paella is cooked long and slowly in a large shallow pan, often over an open fire. In my version, we will use brown rice cooked with

Cauliflower and Chickpea Masala

Masala is one of my favorite Indian dishes. There are so many different ways to make it, but I go back to this easy Cauliflower and Chickpea Masala time and time again. I roast the cauliflower in the oven to crisp it up a bit.
