Skillet Vegetarian Chili

Skillet Vegetarian Chili
I wanted to make an easy, healthy, relatively quick dinner for myself and my boyfriend last night. At first I thought about doing a salad that I’ve had in my repertoire for a while, but given the cold weather we’ve been having, I wanted to go more in the direction of comfort food. I decided to make this skillet vegetarian chili.

I’m a big fan of meals that come together more or less in one pan. When I bake, I don’t mind using multiple bowls and utensils, but when I cook, I’m more impatient. I don’t like chopping and I really don’t like mincing, so after that’s done I like to throw everything in a pot or pan and call it a day.

Cue: this skillet vegetarian chili. It comes together in one pan, it’s quick, AND it requires minimal effort and ingredients. It’s the perfect thing to make on a cold fall/winter night when you don’t feel like cooking.

I decided to add roasted sweet potatoes into the mix but you could skip this step. Yeah, they required a little more work but I think they were a good addition to the chili. They added some sweetness and I like how they paired with the spices in the dish.

You could use any kind of beans you want in this chili but I decided to use black beans and kidney beans. It isn’t chili to me without kidney beans.

Also, one of these days I’m going to soak my beans and use them instead of the canned kind. I know I just got done talking about how I hate to do extra steps when I cook but an exception to this rule is, will it make the dish taste better? If the answer is yes, I will do it. I’m curious as to what the difference would be.

ANYWAY. Make this chili as soon as possible. You can garnish it with whatever you want but I’d recommend lime juice, pickled onions (see below recipe), avocado, and Greek yogurt/sour cream. Next time I make this, I’m also going to make some cornbread to go with it.

Here’s a song to get you started on your skillet vegetarian chili journey.

Skillet Vegetarian Chili

for the sweet potatoes:
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 pinches of salt

for the pickled onions:
1 lime
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
2 pinches of salt
1 pinch of sugar

for the chili:
olive oil for the pan
1 large red onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1 15-oz can of black beans, drained
1 15-oz can of kidney beans, drained
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
salt, to taste
avocado, lime, nonfat Greek yogurt, and black pepper for serving

Directions

First, make the sweet potatoes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and place the sweet potato cubes on top. Toss them with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt. Spread them out and make sure they’re in an even layer. Roast them in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until they sizzling, soft, and browned.

Make the pickled onions by tossing the sliced red onion with the juice of one lime, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Leave the bowl uncovered while you make the chili.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and then add olive oil. Add the chopped onions and sauté them for a few minutes until they’re soft. Add the minced garlic, chili powder, and oregano, and stir until the mixture is fragrant. Add the black beans, kidney beans, tomatoes, and a pinch or two of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil and then down to a low simmer. Cook until the tomatoes break down, about 20 minutes. Five minutes before the mixture is done cooking, stir in the roasted sweet potatoes.

Serve with avocado, lime wedges, Greek yogurt, pickled onions, and black pepper. Enjoy!

Dimanche (That Means Sunday)

IMG_7387
Welcome to this edition of Dimanche (That Means Sunday), a roundup of things that caught my eye this past week.

This week was unusual because it started to feel like winter. Usually this happens later in November in St. Louis but this week, it started to snow on Friday. I wasn’t sure if it would stick or not but in the morning, there was a light dusting of snow on the ground.

Normally when it starts to snow, my mood plummets. I hate cold weather and I only like snow when it’s falling or just fallen. When it becomes gray, muddy, and gross, I can’t stand it. I don’t know how I survived two winters in Chicago.

This year, though, I’m taking the cold weather in stride. I realized that getting through a season I don’t like will take a lot of preparation and a better attitude, so I’m trying to make the best of it. I bought all the ingredients to make hot chocolate, I replenished my tea supply, I scouted out comforting recipes, and I forced myself to go ice skating with my boyfriend (see above photo). In the end, I really enjoyed it.

I guess the moral of this story is, if you’re starting to get down because it’s winter and you miss pretty fall leaves and 70 degrees temperatures, don’t despair. Find some positives about the season and stick to them. I can’t wait for my second cup of hot chocolate today.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with some links. Without further ado, here is Dimanche:

I saw this story about a California doughnut shop earlier in the week and it warmed my heart. Customers of Donut City in Seal Beach, CA, are buying out the shop every morning so the owner can go spend time with his sick wife. Apparently, the customers were very attached to Stella Chhan when she was behind the counter and so when they found out why her husband John was in such a rush everyday, they decided to help him out. Read the full story from CBS Los Angeles.

I tried The Chocolate Pig for the first time last night and I’m in love. The restaurant just opened in the Cortex community, an innovation center right next to Washington University Medical School. I’d highly recommend the chicken fried brussels sprouts pictured below. They come with a buttermilk dressing and they are so. good. IMG_7375

Few people have heard of the Hello Girls but more people should know about them. The group comprises the first women to serve in the U.S. military. They worked as telephone operators and bilingual translators in France during World War I after a top U.S. commander deemed men too incompetent for the job. Read more about the Hello Girls in this NPR piece.

France scored a win earlier this week when people in a Pacific territory voted to remain a part of the country. A majority of voters in New Caledonia elected to stay in France, even though the territory has a troubling history of colonization. Now French President Emmanuel Macron is celebrating. Read more about the situation in this Associated Press article.

I got to meet my coworker’s cat on Friday night and I’m in love. Vote for Levin (named for “Crime and Punishment”) in St. Louis Magazine‘s “Pet of the Year” competition! He’s worthy of the prize. Check out the ballot here.IMG_7365

I’m loving this interactive pie feature from The New York Times. I spent waaay too much time staring at it this week but that’s okay. It’s inspiring me to get a leg up on my holiday baking. Check out the feature in NYT Cooking.

Speaking of holiday cooking… I’m definitely making a bourbon cranberry sauce recipe from Jessica Koslow, owner of Sqirl, a cafe and bakery in L.A. I didn’t know that Koslow was a figure skater before she opened the cafe. Reading an article about Koslow and her baking makes me want to go back to L.A. and have another piece of the cafe’s poppyseed cake. Read the Koslow profile and get the recipe for cranberry bourbon sauce in The Washington Post.

Last but certainly not least, Ice-T said he’s never had a bagel and the internet exploded. I was a little surprised myself, not because I think that everyone should eat bagels but more because they are such ubiquitous things in cities. I can’t fault Ice-T for his food choices but I can still be dismayed. Read more about the situation in Vulture.

Enjoy your week! Here’s a song to get you started.

KNEAD Bakehouse’s First Birthday

Sour Apple Doughnut
One of my favorite places to go for breakfast in St. Louis is KNEAD Bakehouse. I’ve written a little about the bakery before but in light of their first anniversary, I decided that I’d stop by and celebrate.

Before I get all nostalgic and tell you my KNEAD story, I’ll share some important facts. The bakery is going all out for its first birthday. A week from tomorrow, Saturday the 17th, it will kick off its birthday celebration with a bunch of special vendors and deals. Anyone who stops by the bakery will get 10% off on Saturday and Sunday. You can also buy mini birthday cakes from the pastry case, which I’m sure will be delicious and cute.

Aside from pastries and great deals, you can also browse wares from Red Lettered Goods, a hand lettered design and print company based in St. Louis. Holiday cards, anyone? You can also buy a bouquet of beautiful flowers for your home/apartment/office from Rudy’s Flower Truck. Red Lettered Goods will be at KNEAD on Saturday and Rudy’s will be at the bakery on Saturday and Sunday.

KNEAD FrontOkay, now to the memories. I came to KNEAD a little over a year ago in search of good doughnuts and pastries. St. Louis isn’t lacking for pastries and doughnuts but I had yet to find something truly unique. All that changed when I got to KNEAD.

KNEAD is different from other bakeries because it makes all its own bread for sandwiches and breakfast dishes. It also uses a special recipe for its doughnuts that calls for sourdough starter. This gives its doughnuts a completely different flavor profile. Instead of being completely sugary they have a little tang. The sourdough balances out the sugar and creates a doughnut that’s dense and a little chewy, but still fluffy and light. It’s basically heaven in a doughnut.

This morning I stopped by for breakfast and I went all out. I got the sour apple caramel doughnut (pictured above) which was one of the best pastries I’ve ever had at KNEAD. It actually tasted like an apple and it was studded with little caramel sprinkles that melt in your mouth. I’m getting emotional just writing about it.

After the doughnut, I decided to order the brioche French toast. It’s something I’ve been meaning to order for a while but I keep getting distracted by doughnuts and sandwiches. Apple Butter French Toast Close UpSometimes, when you eat something truly delicious, you’re transported to a different world. You temporarily forget where you are and maybe even who you are. All you know is the thing you’re eating and how good it is. That’s what happened with me and this French toast.

It’s made with KNEAD’s brioche bread. The slices are just the right size, not too thick or thin, and they’re light and fluffy with a slightly sweet custard. They’re topped with a healthy amount of apple butter and a quenelle of mascarpone that cuts through the sweetness and balances out the sugary apples and custard. The dish is sprinkled with powdered sugar. If I could summarize fall and early winter in a dish, it would be this brioche French toast from KNEAD.

ANYWAY. I left the restaurant this morning feeling satisfied and slightly surprised that I could eat a doughnut and French toast back-to-back in one sitting. I guess you learn something new everyday.

Stop by KNEAD soon for breakfast. You won’t regret it. And definitely stop by next weekend for their first birthday celebration. It’s the perfect opportunity to try their pastries and to congratulate them on a job well done. I hope KNEAD is around for many years to come. KNEAD Interior

Pumpkin Maple Muffins

IMG_7283
I was sitting in my new apartment yesterday afternoon waiting for the movers to deliver my bed. I started scrolling through NYT Cooking looking for recipes and I saw these pumpkin maple muffins on the homepage. “Yep,” I said to myself. “This is happening.”

Pumpkin is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with in the fall.  It differs from pumpkin spice, an artificial aberration, because it’s real. Yeah, the kind I use comes from a can, but it’s not a mix of chemicals specifically engineered to make me believe I’m consuming pumpkin.

One of my favorite things to do with pumpkin in the fall is to mix it with warming spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. Sometimes, I even add a pinch of cloves. Pumpkin is squash so it needs a little sprucing up when presented in baked goods.

Also, I put maple syrup in pretty much everything. Just ask my boyfriend. I like it in oatmeal, cookies, cakes, pies, muffins. I once had an idea for an ice cream sundae with warm maple syrup that I’m still playing around with. Maybe it will make it onto the menu in my future bakery one day.

Until then, I plan on making these pumpkin maple muffins throughout the fall and winter. They’re warming, spicy, fragrant, slightly sweet, and surprisingly light.

You might be tempted to skip the step in the recipe that calls for browned butter. Whatever you do, DO NOT skip this step. Browning butter gives it a depth of flavor that it doesn’t have on its own. You’ll be happy you spent a little extra time doing it when you taste the finished product.

When I brought the muffins into work this morning, a coworker asked if they were diet muffins. “They can be in your head,” I said. In all honesty, though, they’re not that bad for you. They are full of whole wheat flour, they don’t have any white sugar, and they have pumpkin, which is vegetable. I’m a big believer in getting your fruits and vegetables in through baked goods.

ANYWAY. Make these muffins as soon as possible. I won’t publish the recipe below because I followed Alison Roman’s recipe in NYT Cooking. Here’s a link to the recipe instead. The only thing I did was cut the amount of salt by half a teaspoon. I did that because I bought the bigger salt flakes from the grocery store and Samin Nosrat taught me that you have to be careful when working with bigger salt flakes.

Here’s a song to get you started on your pumpkin maple muffin journey.

Dimanche (That Means Sunday)

IMG_7210
Welcome to this edition of Dimanche (That Means Sunday), a roundup of things that caught my eye this past week.

I’m writing this week’s Dimanche from the floor of my new apartment. I have a table and chairs but there’s something very reassuring about sitting on the floor. Light is streaming through my three front windows, bright orange fall leaves are glittering on the trees, and the only sound I hear is my fingers typing on my keyboard. It’s very peaceful and exactly what I needed after a busy week.

I moved into my new place yesterday and I love it. I’m excited to start this new chapter in my life even though living on my own again is a little terrifying. I keep telling myself to take one day at a time. So far, it seems to be working.

I realize as I write this that my blog has basically become a compendium of Dimanche, but I’m kind of okay with that. I foresee bigger and better cooking project in my future now that I’m done moving and I have a new space all to myself.

In the meantime, there are lots of discoveries and detours worth noting. This week’s Dimanche includes some food recommendations, an intruiging Q&A, lots of pretty fall leaves, and some politics at home and abroad.

Without going on too much of a tangent, I wanted to remind those who are reading to vote this week. It’s never been more important to make time to do this. It’s easy to feel like your vote doesn’t make a difference but it does. The only way to fight bigotry and hate is through sustained opposition. I consider my vote to be a part of this much-needed effort.

I could go on forever but instead, I’ll leave you with the links. Without further ado, here is Dimanche:

I had brunch at The Scottish Arms today and I was blown away. I’d been to the restaurant one time before for lunch but never for brunch, probably because I don’t eat brunch much anymore. Now, I want to go every weekend. I ordered the “Seamus Macbenedict” with smoked salmon, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce to marry. I’ll be thinking about this meal for a long time.IMG_7246

A coworker sent me a story this week about Samin Nosrat’s beauty routine. I love Nosrat’s new Netflix series, “Salt Fat Acid Heat.” I enjoy her so much as a cook and person. I like that in this Q&A, she’s very honest and self-effacing. Celebrities like to hide their perceived flaws or insecurities but Nosrat is very up front about her hang ups. Read the interview in A Cup of Jo.

So, the French Minister of Labor doesn’t think burn out is a thing. It seems very odd and anti-French of her but it’s true. Muriel Pénicaud said on TV that “le burn-out” is “pas une maladie professionnelle,” i.e., it’s not work-related. Maybe it’s easy to feel that way when you work for the government and live in a country with extended public holidays. Read the story (in French) in Huffpost France.

A dog documentary series is coming to Netflix and I’m already losing it. “Dogs,” a six-part docuseries, will feature stories about different dogs across the globe. I can’t wait to watch even though I know I’ll probably be crying the whole time. Check out the trailer in this E! News piece.

King Arthur Flour is teaming up with a school in Washington to open a baking school. The Vermont-based flour company will work with The Bread Lab at Washington State University to offer courses for bakers. I want to sign up. Read more about the partnership in this Seattle Times story.

I think many people are still reeling after the monstrous act of violence and anti-Semitism in Pittsburgh last weekend. I was glad to see this op-ed piece about the incident in The New York Times earlier this week. Andre Perry, a fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, writes about his experience as a black boy growing up in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, where the synagogue massacre took place last week. I think Perry has some good insights about what diversity and inclusion really means in this country, especially in a time of seemingly unbridled hate.

On a lighter note, I love this piece about the day the San Francisco Chronicle discovered the burrito. The article is pretty cringeworthy, as the Chronicle says in its modern-day story/almost retraction. It’s so bad that it’s…not good, but worth examining. Plus, I like what it said about the wording used to describe a burrito. Food writers struggle with description but this particular writer could have found better words than a “short, fat rectangle,” which makes a burrito sound like a radio.

This video about French pastry-making from Eater is intriguing and outrageous.  A pair of pastry chefs, one of whom is an ex-architect, build a French pastry tower from scratch. I loved watching the process but then I got to the end and they (spoiler alert) demolish the tower with a baton. I’m not sure why but I guess it was cathartic? Watch the video on Eater‘s YouTube page.

I love this story about Elena Ferrante’s elusiveness. Ferrante’s books were recently adapted for an HBO series and she had a hand in the writing and direction of the movie. Still, she’s a pretty enigmatic figure. Read more about Ferrante and the upcoming series in this New York Times Magazine story.

Last but certainly not least, Barbra Streisand gave an interview so of course I read it on the spot when I saw it. Streisand is one of my long-time idols. I like what she has to say in this interview about art and politics. Also, I can sympathize with her Trump-induced stress eating. Read the interview in The New York Times.

Enjoy your week! Here’s a song to get you started.

Dimanche (That Means Sunday)

IMG_7127
Welcome to this edition of Dimanche (That Means Sunday), a roundup of things that caught my eye this past week.

It was a busy week filled with reunions. I met up with my friend Lynn from Edelbrand Pure Distilling and we had fun catching up over pizza and puppies. Yes, puppies…more on that later.

Then, Thursday I went down to Wash U’s Med School campus to work and I met up with some old colleagues. Last night I met up with my sister, her husband and her in-laws. I hadn’t seen them since her wedding so we had a lot to talk about.

The trifecta of reunions made me realize how important it is to make time for friends and family. Sometimes when I get busy or stressed, I want to crawl into a hole and get everything done that I need to. This strategy is okay during crunch time but eventually, you have to resurface. I feel like I’ve been doing that lately after starting a new job, recovering from a couple injuries, and reassessing after a difficult summer.

I’m really excited about what next week has in store. I’m going to be moving on Saturday (!!!) and I can’t wait to settle into my new place. It’s the first apartment I’ve found that I’m actually excited to move to, so that’s promising. My sister’s in-laws were joking that they might see the space soon in an interior design magazine, but they’re not far off. I can’t wait to decorate it and turn it into the apartment of my dreams.

In the meantime, I’ll be working and seeing what else the week brings. If nothing else, it will be full of beautiful fall scenery (see above picture) and lots of opportunities to relax with a cup of tea, a book, and maybe reruns of “Gilmore Girls” for the 17,000th time. It’s that time of year.

Without further ado, here is Dimanche:

Can we talk about “Salt Fat Acid Heat”? Good. This is my latest Netflix obsession. Host Samin Nosrat, a chef and food writer, takes viewers through episodes based on her popular cookbook of the same name. In the first episode, “Fat,” (which I’d argue is the best episode), she goes to Italy and illustrates fat’s role in creating delicious food by cooking with friends and Italian food experts and taking a tour of a cheese factory. I binged watched the series and now I’m feeling the void.

I need to make a trip down to Florida soon because I’ve been falling in love with their food scene from afar. This century-old Cuban bakery in Tampa sounds like a dream. La Segunda Central Bakery has been making Cuban bread for years using more or less the same traditional method. It’s amazing to think that most of their product is still handmade in an age where everything is churned out of a machine. Read more about the bakery in this Washington Post story.

I’m loving this story about a trip around the periphery of Paris on foot. Travel writer David McAninch traipses around the outskirts of Paris by himself, logging 35 miles over six days. Yes, there were blisters and breaks with reality involved, but what emerges is a bigger and better portrait of the city than most travel pieces. Read the story in The New York Times.

So, about those puppies… I stopped by Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria on Tuesday to meet my friend Lynn and there was a giant crib filled with puppies by the door. The restaurant was having a fundraiser for Stray Rescue of St. Louis that night. Naturally, Lynn and I went crazy and spent most of our meal holding puppies. IMG_7036

The “chef’s kiss” has become ubiquitous online and in social media. A lot of people including myself use the phrase to denote something that’s exceptionally good. I enjoyed this article from Merriam-Webster about all the ways it’s appearing in print. Apparently, there are ways to use it in a sentence that I never considered.

It’s The New York Times Magazine‘s candy issue and my favorite article is this one about Kit Kats in Japan. Food writer Tejal Rao visits a Kit Kat factory in Japan and sees how the candy is made. She also shows readers the evolution of the Kit Kat in the country. You can buy bars there in flavors including strawberry, matcha, banana, and mochi. Read more about the candy in this NYT Magazine story.

Last but certainly not least, a restaurant in O’Fallon, Missouri is donating 10,000 holiday dinners and warm hats and gloves to families on Thanksgiving. The work that Scott Ellinger and the team at The Brass Rail Steakhouse are doing is truly inspirational. Ellinger and his team of staff and volunteers are also serving about 1,000 people at the restaurant on Thanksgiving day. Read more about their work in my latest story for St. Louis Magazine.

Enjoy your week! Here’s a song to get you started.

Dimanche (That Means Sunday)

IMG_6991
Welcome to this edition of Dimanche (That Means Sunday), a roundup of things that caught my eye this past week.

This week went by quickly, which was good because I was looking forward to the weekend. On Friday, my boyfriend and I packed up the car and drove to Lake of Egypt in Southern Illinois. You’ve probably never heard of it but it’s a small lake right next to Shawnee National Forest and Garden of the Gods (pictured above). Garden of the Gods is full of bluffs and spectacular rock formations that are fun to climb. We enjoyed hiking around and seeing the country in early fall.

Going to Southern Illinois reminded me that there’s fun to be had right next door. I travel a lot throughout the year and I take weekend trips in Missouri, but I rarely cross over into the next state.

After spending some time in southern Illinois, I realized that some of the best destinations are the ones we overlook. The area has so much natural beauty. I could have spent a week there exploring, hiking, and lounging by the lake.

It’s going to be hard to go back to work tomorrow but at least I have the memories of this weekend to tide me over. I’m glad that I got away for a few days and spent some time in nature. I hope that wherever you are, you get an opportunity this fall to get outside and enjoy the season.

Without further ado, here is Dimanche:

I was happy to see that Nathaniel Reid was named a Chef to Watch in 2018 by Plate MagazineReid opened his eponymous bakery in Kirkwood, a quaint town in St. Louis, to widespread acclaim. Now he’s getting the national recognition he deserves. Read more about him and his career in this Plate story.

If you’re near St. Louis and you haven’t gone to Lake of Egypt, I’d highly recommend changing that soon. As I mentioned before, I stopped by over the weekend and it was beautiful. If you have a boat, it’s a great place to take it for a spin or cast a line. If you don’t, you can still fish from the shore. It’s a quiet, relaxing place to spend a weekend and it’s close to lots of good hikes.

IMG_6905

If you end up going to hike at Shawnee National Forest or Garden of the Gods, *definitely* stop at Bucketheads on the way back. My boyfriend and I saw it as we were driving to hike at Garden of the Gods. The restaurant specializes in “swamp cuisine,” which basically translates into deep fried everything. We got fried green tomatoes, fried crawfish, and fried corn fritters. The corn fritters were my favorite: crispy, sweet, melty…I’m tearing up a little just thinking about it.

IMG_6998

This week’s Dimanche is a little photo heavy because I enjoyed so much good food and took pictures of it all. Cue: my lunch on Monday at Parker’s Table. The very talented Jay Stringer made me a wonderful lunch that included a beans and greens soup, a prosciutto sandwich, and panna cotta with red wine-soaked pears. I’m still thinking about it days later. I’m definitely going to visit the shop again soon.

I grew up seeing my mom buy Mary Engelbreit calendars, stationary, and magnets, so I’m familiar with her work. I had no idea though that she was politically subversive. Apparently, the St. Louis-based illustrator has started to make prints with liberal slogans. I love them all. Find out more about Engelbreit’s new work in this Riverfront Times story.

I really enjoyed this story about why some top restaurants are closing for dinner. For a lot of restaurants, it doesn’t make financial sense. But for others, the payoff in terms of employee health and wellness makes it worth it. Read more about what restaurant around the country are doing with altered hours in this Food & Wine article.

I’ve had my eye on Melbourne, Australia for a while so this city guide got my attention. The guide gives some recommendations for shopping and eating in the city, which basically sounds like heaven for liberal people who love coffee. Get the full guide in this Condé Nast Traveller story.

Last but certainly not least, the James Beard Foundation announced some new awards including one named for the late Los Angeles-based food critic Jonathan Gold. The award named for Gold, the “local impact award,” will honor food writers who are telling stories steeped in their region or city. Read more about the awards in this Eater story.

Enjoy your week! Here’s a song to get you started.
