Rachael's Roasted Broccoli

Love that Rachael Ray uses "Grill Seasoning" on her broccoli! YES.
Try using the sauces, marinades and spices you've loved on meat in vegan dishes: grains, tofu, beans, vegetables.. It'll scare you how similar they can taste.
The most sincere thank you to Rachael Ray, Food Network & Scripps for showing us around those folate-rich stems!

Trisha's Thai Salad

Just try and watch this clip without immediately making a salad. It's impossible. (I had to.. and I never make 'em.)
Sure the dressing ingredients are similar to cake (you'll see) - but at least everything else is literally just vegetables and legumes. All good!
Also, that lasagna they serve it with? It's vegan! 100% totally completely:

Thanks to Trisha Yearwood, Ellen Rakieten, Garth Brooks, Scripps & Food Network for this incredibly refreshing food show. Seriously. Healthy, unique, smart and simple. Thank you!

Duff's Onion Rings

Where to begin??
These Onion Rings are dairy free, egg free, gluten free AND Duff Goldman's FAVORITE. Bonus: he eats his Onion Rings with Ketchup.
Huge thank you to chef Akasha Richmond, Food Network & Scripps for the perfection that is a "Crunchy" episode of TBTIEA.

Giada's Farro

This recipe is ridiculously quick and easy. But now we know how to cook (and pronounce) a new grain: Farro!
I'll take this quickie over the same old rice/pasta recipes any day...
Thanks to Scripps, Food Network and Giada De Laurentiis for cooking outside the (grain) box!

Rachael's Quinoa Peppers

Rachael Ray teaches us how to cook quinoa with her adorable mug as a measuring vessel. Maximum loveliness.
Did you know 1 cup dry quinoa yields 4 cups cooked!? Do you also just wanna throw some olives in there? Ya, me too. Maybe even raisins and nuts.. I swear I can see the olives in her finished peppers.. A food-wish hallucination. Thanks so much to Scripps & Food Network for the culinary class that is Rachael Ray!

Ina's Easy Appetizers

How does Ina Garten entertain her guests? She kicks meaty-cheese gangly bits to the curb and serves up a healthy dose of vegan snacks.
They're easy, light and pair perfectly with drinks! Have you ever loved her more?
Protein. Carbs. Greens. She is pretty perfect. Thanks to Scripps, Food Network and the Culinary Goddess that is Ina Garten for this brilliant "Back to Basics, Ask Ina" segment for the holidays.

Rachael's Pumpkin Pasta

Not only is canned pumpkin creamy, it creates a sauce reminiscent of those fluorescent orange macaroni & cheese powder packets?!
Pumpkin, where have you been all our lives.
(I love how Rachael Ray talks about the whole wheat penne having protein. It's true, there's protein just about everywhere. Let the cows keep theirs, amirite.)
A huge thank you to Food Network, Scripps & Rachael Ray for all the glorious work they put into 30 Minute Meals.
