  • lselke  on  1/29/2015 at 11:38 AM

    My go-to vegetarian dish, at least this winter, is a coconut milk curry with winter squash, greens, and tofu. It always comes together much more quickly than I expect. I am also a proud member of the "put an egg on it" club, so if I'm not up to cooking anything complicated I will happily eat greens on toast with egg, roasted vegetables with polenta (or grits) with egg, or pan-roasted potatoes with smoked paprika and egg.

  • spamorama2003  on  1/29/2015 at 12:23 PM
