193: Vegan Tacos, Grain Bowls, New Cookbooks

Vegan tacos are just as good as meaty tacos.

In Food News this week, NPR’s The Salt blog asks: How organic is your milk? (Hint: Probably not as organic as you think.)

Joy is on a vegan taco kick. She likes to fold beans, greens, avocado, asparagus and all kinds of other vegetables into her tortillas.

We recap our recent grain bowl class at the Philadelphia Free Library. It was so much fun and everyone feasted on grain bowls. Sound like a good night? Come to our salad class on June 20. Mark your calendar.

We talked about some of the season’s new cookbooks that are calling out to us.

And finally, at the market we’re buying spinach. The big kind, not the baby kind.

Did you know that Chipotle recently unseated Subway as America’s favorite “healthy” fast food chain? In this week’s episode, we discussed the Business Insider article that explained this passing of the torch and shared our own thoughts on the two restaurants.

One of our favorite Philly-based fast casual spots is Farmer’s Keep. (Correction: this is the restaurant’s name, not “Farmer’s Table” as Joy said in the podcast.)

The cookbooks we discuss as our longtime loves are:

Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Joy of Cooking 

We’d love for you to share your own go-to cookbooks in the comments here.

Our guest today was Amanda Feifer. Check out her blog, Phickle.com, and preorder her book, Ferment Your Vegetables.

In our discussion of tomatoes, Marisa mentioned her tomato jam recipe which is definitely something you should make if you have a lot of tomatoes on your hands.
