Today I woke up to a chilly San Francisco morning, a gray day after a week of sun. The weather lately gives me a funny in-between feeling-some days feel like pure spring and some feel like we never left winter. Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday, the sun was out and shining but a crisp cold wind was tossing up hair and hats, making bikers swerve on their paths and chopping up the waves underneath. Ahh, the bay.

Artichokes with Capers and Lemon Recipe

By Madeleine Ignon | April 4, 2011



The Casual Vegetarian By Madeleine Ignon

Artichokes are effort. Or at least, eating them is: dunking the bases of the leaves in a delicious dip made of butter and/or mayonnaise, scraping a little bit of meat off each with your bottom teeth, slowly making your way to the glorious heart, Read More


Kale and White Bean Stew Recipe

Each Monday I’ll be sharing an original Five Ingredient Meal.  Every recipe will be made with whole foods and easy-to-source ingredients.  I’ll omit salt and pepper in my count of ingredients, because in my opinion, they’re almost always essential for good flavor.


My first recipe, Kale and White Bean Stew, is a restorative, soul-warming, and healthy mid-winter meal.

After New Year’s, I felt a tickle at the back of my throat.  That tickle turned into the most throat-wrenching, head-pounding, body-shaking sickness I’ve experienced in a long time.  I haven’t been incapacitatingly sick in a long time.  No voice, no ability to move.  Life didn’t seem doable for a while.  Food tasted menthol-tinged. I ate cherry, black cherry, and orange jello.

Then, after 36 hours in bed, I lumbered out of bed to cook an afternoon snack.  It was the first food that tasted appetizing in days, and it reawakened me to life after the initial slump.  Even after I’d recovered this combination of vegetables and protein-packed beans has turned out to be a go-to dish.  It’s great tossed with whole-wheat pasta, or eaten on it’s own, with a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream. You can make it vegan, too, by using canola oil instead of butter.

Enjoy, and check back Monday’s for a new installment of Five Ingredient Meals.
