200th Post {Recipe+ Cookbook Giveaway}

Hello lovely readers! Welcome to The Vegetarian Ginger’s official 200th post. Along with it is coming a brand new recipe and my first ever cookbook giveaway! I know the past few months have been a little slower than usual, but I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a ton of recipe ideas, some product reviews, and lots…

Habanero Lentils

Lentils are ugly, but delicious. Since I’ve moved houses, my cooking situation has changed significantly. . You really don’t realize how many staples you need in a kitchen to make the basic things until you don’t have them. My mom always makes stewed lentils and I’ve never been able to replicate them the exact same…

Zucchini Quinoa Burgers

Hey there readers, long time no see. I’m still alive, I promise! The past month has been crazy for me, hence my one post in the past 4 weeks. I got a new job, moved out, and have essentially been out of town or running around like a crazy person ever since. But I am…

Three Year Blogiversary!

To all my hungry readers, It’s officially been three years since my first post to The Vegetarian Ginger. It really doesn’t feel like that much time has passed, but when I look at some of my first posts I can see how long I’ve come (and how long I have to go). There have been…

Classic Falafel

If your hands aren’t dirty in the process of making falafels, you’re doing it wrong. I’m coming up to my three year blogiversary this weekend which is unbelievable. I started this blog to showcase a bit of my cooking and use it as a portfolio piece for work, but it has ended up being so…

Chive Flower Dumplings

Chives are the lowest maintenance garden herb and they grow back every year in full force. It was only this year that it dawned on me—are the purple flowers that grow on them edible too? I took it to Google and everyone said yes. I tried it out and I’m still alive, so there’s my…

Spicy Vegan Meatballs

Sometimes the eternally upset redditors get mad at me for calling things by their meat-based names when there’s no actual meat in the ingredient list. I thought about changing the name of this dish to “mockballs” but something doesn’t quite seem appetizing about that, does it. I don’t feel too guilty calling them meatballs, either;…

Pulled Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Embrace laziness with tacos. The ultimate crowd pleaser and stress-free dinner with room for picky eaters. These are a great vegetarian option for summer potlucks, weeknight dinners, etc. because they’re light and easy to prep in advance. Realistically you could make everything in advance then just heat up the squash and shells when you’re ready…

Creamy Peanut Slaw

It’s been a few weeks since my last post, which is the first time in almost 3 years I’ve fallen so behind. I’m now back on track, and I have a bunch of awesome posts coming up to make up for lost time. As my regular readers may know, each year I harvest a small…

Spiced Black Bean Burgers (a.k.a. the Instant Classic)

In all my years as a vegetarian, I have never made a veggie burger this good. It held its shape when cooking, tasted amazing, it’s high in protein and nutrients, and it stands its ground in the burger game. From now on I’m going to use this as my base for burgers and go from…
