Our Kitchen Renovation

Hello, friends. You might have spotted that we haven't posted for quite a while now — the fact that we still have our Thanksgiving 2019 post on the front page is a constant source of embarrassment to us — so let me explain what's been going on. You'd better sit down,...

Tofu and Charred Broccoli Bowls with Kimchi–Miso Dressing

Tofu and Charred Broccoli Bowls with Kimchi–Miso Dressing

Cork and Knife

Our new cookbook is out now — and its focus is one of our favorite ingredients: booze! We show you how to use the cooking properties of beer, wine, bourbon and more to make your dishes pop!

Charred Broccoli and Tofu Bowl

Our version of a Buddha Bowl showcases two main ingredients — charred broccoli and spicy baked tofu. For crunch we add shredded carrots and red cabbage, then we top it off with the creamiest vegan kimchi–miso dressing. Add rice or your favorite grain and dinner is done! 

We’ve never claimed to be on the cutting edge of any particular food trends. In fact, the trendier something is, the more we tend to side-eye it, like a goth kid at a unicorn-themed prom. But you know what? Sometimes dishes we love just happen to also be eminently hashtaggable. That’s the case with this bowl of charred broccoli and spicy baked tofu. It’s topped with a vegan miso-kimchi dressing so luscious, we want to drizzle it on just about everything we make. So go ahead and call this a Buddha Bowl, a Grain Bowl or a Rice Bowl; it doesn’t matter when dinner is this delicious.
