Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes

This is the week each year I get asked for vegetarian Thanksgiving recipe ideas, so I thought I'd update my list of favorite recipes and ideas from the archives.

Kimchi Soup

There is a soup I've had stuck in my mind for the past couple of years. I encountered it at Namu Gaji, a lively, welcoming, neighborhood spot run by the three (Dennis, Daniel, and David) Lee Brothers.

At The Studio: Pilpelchuma Salad

I'm getting better and more creative when it comes to lunches at QUITOKEETO. Soups are the easiest, and I bring them most often.

Green Chile Whipped Goat Cheese

This is the recipe I was working on when Sarah Lonsdale came to visit to do this interview. You can see my little recipe notepad in some of the photos in that piece.

Heirloom Apple Salad

I'm off to New York this week, and thought I would leave you with this Heirloom Apple Salad recipe from the archives.

White Chard Stew

Before we talk about today's soup, I just want to mention that I'll be in Seattle this week for an event at Book Larder - Wednesday evening, October 14, from 6:30-8pm.

At The Studio: Mung Quinoa Power Bowl

I know a lot of you like to see what I pull together for a quick lunch when I'm working at the Quitokeeto studio.

Chicory Soup & Camino Photos

As you drive south on Oakland's Grand Avenue toward Lake Merritt, on the right hand side, you'll notice a beautiful exposed brick building.

A Kitchen Visit with Remodelista

For those of who are curious about what the kitchen I cook in is like, I spent a recent afternoon with Sarah Lonsdale from Remodelista.

Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home & Travel

One of the reasons you write a cookbook is to share what you love about cooking with others. It's a feeling, as an author, you hope is infectious.

At The Studio: Dragonfruit Vodka Tonic

We don't have an elaborate kitchen at the QUITOKEETO studio. There's a sink, a single induction burner, a huge silver champagne bucket (that floods brilliantly with water and ice-packs for "refrigeration"), a stack of cutting boards, and as you can imagine, no shortage of knives.

Magic Ancho Chile Relish

I have a couple of announcements before we dive into today's recipe. First! It feels a bit surreal, but there are only two weeks until Near & Far is released.

Broiled Saffron Dates

If you've been to my house at any point in recent months, you've likely had these dates. They take only slightly more effort to make than placing dates unadorned on a plate.


I've started to post some of the events and book signings I'll be doing in September and October related to the release of Near & Far.

Super Onigiri

Onigiri are so cute! I make these little on-the-go rice balls all the time with leftover rice, and whatever fillings and seasonings are convenient and on hand.

Thai Zucchini Soup

My intent here was to make a chilled, pureed, Thai curry soup. It would be summery and refreshing, and at the same time, strong with green curry flavor.

Favorites List (08.08.15)

And a few favorite things from around the house, pictured above clockwise from top left. Leaves & Flowers Rosella Mint I drink it cold-brewed & iced, fresh marjoram, white pine deodorant, natural fiber jewelry, dried flowers.

Summer Drink Ideas

I'm delivering a list of quenchers today. A quick summer drink round-up to keep you hydrated and full of good ingredients while enjoying the sunshine.

Chia Breakfast Bowl

I know many of you are always on the lookout for quick, healthy breakfast ideas, and I have a solid for you.

Summer Melon Salad

I made this quick melon salad with the frog prince of melons - the piel de sapo. It has creamy, sweet, pale green flesh, and a blotched, pebbled green-yellow appearance.
