Preheat the oven to 400 F/ 210 C. Toss the cauliflower with the oil and spices until coated. Spread evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper or tinfoil. Roast for 40-50 minutes, until crispy and golden, stopping to mix once halfway.
In a large pot on medium heat, cook the onions in the oil, until soft and slightly golden. Add splashes of water if needed to prevent burning or sticking in the pot. Once soft, add the garlic and all the spices, and stir until fragrant (about 1 minutes).
Add the can of tomatoes and diced tomatoes, and stir to combine everything. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
Finally, add the coconut milk, lentils, spinach, and roasted cauliflower, and mix until everything is combined and heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve with rice, and enjoy!
Blend dates, cashew milk, cashews, cocoa powder, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a blender on high speed until very smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer date milk to a quart-size jar or resealable container. Stir in chia seeds. Cover and chill at least 6 hours.
Do Ahead: Chia pudding can be made 5 days ahead. Keep chilled.
Maple Yogurt and Assembly
Stir yogurt and ¼ cup maple syrup in a medium bowl. Transfer to a quart-size jar or resealable container (or reserve yogurt container and use that!).
To serve, alternate layering a few spoonfuls of chia pudding and maple yogurt in a small ramekin or 8-oz. glass. Drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with sea salt. Dust with cinnamon.
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons (272 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon (6 grams) baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons (6 grams) kosher salt
1/2 cup (102 grams) extra-virgin olive oil with a nice, mild flavor (avoid ones with a strong peppery flavor)
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (180 grams) maple syrup
1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup (24 grams) coconut sugar
1 3/4 cups (252 grams) dark chocolate chunks (note: use a vegan brand if you want to keep these fully vegan)
1 tablespoon flaky salt
Heat the oven to 375F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and kosher salt to combine and get rid of any flour lumps.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together olive oil, maple syrup, molasses, vanilla, and coconut sugar until fully combined and smooth—the mixture will look like slightly loose caramel. Add the dry ingredients and chocolate chunks, and use a wooden spoon or spatula to gently combine from the bottom and sides until there are no visible streaks of flour, but then stop. Over-mixing will make your cookies less tender. (Note: If you’d like to hydrate your flour as the original Ovenly recipe recommends, stick it in the fridge, covered, at this point for 12 to 24 hours. Or you can bake these right away.)
Grab a tablespoon or a scoop and divide the dough into heaping tablespoons, spaced out about 2-inches apart onto the baking sheets, with flat bottoms and domed tops; you should get between 24 and 26 portions. Sprinkle a little pinch of flaky salt over the top of each cookie.
Bake for about 13 minutes, until they’ve spread slightly (but they won’t spread much) and there are slight striations starting to form around the edges—they won’t look fully done, don’t worry! Take them out of the oven and let cool a few minutes before attempting to move; they’ll firm up as they rest.
Pulse all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a food processor until well-mixed.
Add chocolate chips and pulse a few more times until they are in small pieces.
Scoop mixture and roll into balls. Freeze until solid and store in the freezer or refrigerator.
Cinnamon vs. Pumpkin Pie Spice: I actually prefer this with straight cinnamon because I’m not a huge fan of the nutmeg that is often found in pumpkin pie spice. Just do whatever your heart feels!
Almond Butter vs. Peanut Butter: Really I think any type of nut or seed butter would work here! It’s just about the flavor you want. I liked peanut butter the best and I didn’t feel like it was overly peanut buttery.
Honey vs. Maple Syrup: Both work really well. Maple syrup is great if you want to keep it vegan. My favorite was 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup maple syrup – best of both worlds.
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
stuff for the shrimp tacos:
1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
2–3 cups shredded green cabbage
8 small tortillas (corn or flour)
avocados, Cotija cheese, and lime wedges for serving
Sauce: Pulse all the sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender until mostly smooth.
Slaw: Toss some of the sauce (not all) with the cabbage. We’ll use the leftover sauce to top the tacos.
Shrimp: Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Toss the shrimp in a small bowl with the spice mix to get it coated. Heat a drizzle of oil a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the shrimp to the hot pan and saute for 5-8 minutes, flipping occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through.
Assembly: For the prettiest and easiest-to-eat assembly, go in this order: smashed avocado, slaw, and shrimp. Finish with Cotjia cheese, lime wedges, and extra sauce.
Cut the broccoli florets from the thick stalks, leaving an inch or two of stalk attached to the florets discarding the rest of the stalks Cut the larger pieces through the base of the head with a small knife, pulling the florets apart. You should have about 8 cups of florets. Place the broccoli florets on a sheet pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Toss the garlic on the broccoli and drizzle with 5 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.
Remove the broccoli from the oven and immediately toss with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, the lemon zest, lemon juice, pine nuts, Parmesan, and basil. Serve hot.
1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen berries (I have thoughts – see notes!)
2 tablespoons sugar (more or less depending on the tartness of your berries)
1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
squeeze of lemon juice
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix: Gently mix up the berry mixture. Mix up the crumble in a separate bowl.
Bake Part One: Press about two-thirds of the crumble into the bottom of two 4-inch ramekins. Bake for 5 minutes to set the crust (more for a firmer crust).
Bake Part Two: Pour the berry filling over the crusts. Sprinkle the remaining crumble on top of each ramekin. Bake for 7-10 more minutes, until the fruit layer is bubbling and the crumbles are golden brown.
Live It Up: Cooling for ten minutes is a good idea, but if you told me that it’s just not humanly possible, I would understand. Grab a fork, dive into the juicy, buttery layers, and never look back.
Berries: frozen raspberries or mixed berries work great for a really jammy, juicy fruit layer. If you’re using frozen berries, you need to thaw them first. I usually just run them under warm water. Fresh raspberries and blueberries also work really well because they kind of burst and release their juices a bit while baking. Fresh strawberries also work, but I would recommend chopping and then slightly mashing them first for best results to make them a bit more jammy.
1 recipe Jim Lahey’s Basic Pizza Dough (below), or your favorite
2 1/2 pounds (5 small-medium or 3 large) zucchini or summer squash, trimmed
1 1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt
2 cups (8oz) coarsely grated Gruyère cheese
2 to 3 tablespoons plain breadcrumbs
Jim Lahey’s Basic Pizza Dough
2 cups minus 1 tablespoon (250g) all-purpose or bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons (5g) instant or active dry yeast
1/4 teaspoon (heaped) fine sea or table salt
2/3 cup (150g) room-temperature water
Heat your oven to 500°F with a rack in the center. Brush either one 13×18-inch rimmed half-sheet pan or two 9×13-inch quarter-sheet pans (as I do) with olive oil. Divide your dough in half and use oiled fingertips to pull, stretch, nudge and press the dough across the bottom of the pan. The dough will be thin and imperfect; just try to get it even. If holes form, just pinch them together.
Use a food processor with a grater attachment or the large holes of a box grater to grate the zucchini. In a large bowl, toss together the zucchini and salt. Let stand for 20 to 30 minutes (more, if you have the time), until the zucchini has wilted and released its water. Drain the zucchini in a colander and then use your hands to squeeze out as much water as possible, a fistful at a time.
Back in the large bowl (wiped out if still wet), toss the zucchini with the gruyere shreds, being sure to break up any clumps of zucchini. Taste the mixture; it should be seasoned enough from the salt, but you can add more, plus ground pepper or pepper flakes if desired.
Spread the zucchini mixture over the dough(s), going all the way to the edges of the pan and piling it a bit thicker at the edges, where it will brown first. Sprinkle messily with the bread crumbs.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the topping is golden. Remove from oven, cut into squares and dig in.
Jim Lahey’s Basic Pizza Dough
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, yeast and salt. Add the water and, using a wooden spoon or your hand, mix until well blended, about 30 seconds. Cover the bowl and let sit at room temperature until the dough has more than doubled in volume, about 2 hours. Continue using instructions above.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In oven, melt butter in a 9-inch pie plate, about 6 minutes.
