Aloo Methi is a mildly flavored vegetable dish cooked in a base of sautèed onions, ginger and garlic. Try this recipe from Farhara Sahibzada’s new cookbook Flavorful Shortcuts to Indian/Pakistani Cooking.
Mollie Katzen’s new cookbook, The Heart of the Plate: Vegetarian Recipes for a New Generation, is full of recipes that layer different textures.
In her Brilliant Beet Arrangement, Katzen roasts beets, combines them in the food processor with garlic-spiked olive oil, and spoons the mixture (she calls it Beet Crush) over Greek yogurt. She tops the dish with smashed pistachios and crispy fried lentils.
Today’s pie comes with a story.
All recipes have histories, but we found Lisa McNamara’s Apple Pie alongside her essay in the beautiful collection The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage: True Tales of Marriage, Family, and How We Learn to Eat.
McNamara describes learning how boys’ hearts can be won with baked goods, but that a well-cooked meal does not always mean a successful relationship.
