Kiersten Frase

After years of struggling to get me to eat meat, my mom finally relented when I was 12 and decided that if I didn't want to eat it, she wasn't going to make me. Back then, being a vegetarian meant that I spent many birthday parties and school functions eating bags of potato chips and sad, empty hot dog buns. Luckily, things have changed a lot in the past 20 years!

Now, with Meatless Monday and flexitarianism on the rise, vegetarian cooking has gone mainstream. Vegetarian food doesn't have to be boring, time-consuming, or consist entirely of faux meats. I'm all about creating easy recipes that anyone can follow using fresh, seasonal ingredients. When your food tastes good, you focus on what's on your plate, not what's missing from it.
