Summer, like all good things, moves faster than we’d like. The farmer’s market and my monthly event with Vegan Shop Up in Brooklyn, where I serve up my fancy burgers, absorbed most of my time. And though I love summer, fall and winter are my favorite seasons for comfort food.
Who doesn’t love caramelized onions? This is a lovely tart made with pie crust using just a few filling ingredients for something light and special. It makes for a perfect afternoon brunch or dinner served with a small salad. Use sweet white onions and really brown them to maximize their flavor. I used smoked gouda cheese…
I first made these sweet and tangy little gems back in 2013 when I returned from a trip to Key West. With lime everywhere, I felt inspired and have enjoyed them ever since. You’ll be happy to see how simple they are to make.
I’m really exploring a variety of soups and stews this winter, especially ones with roasted or steamed vegetables that are then pureed. Though I admit, pureed veggie soups alone are typically never enough to satisfy my big appetite, so I usually have them alongside a hearty salad.
