4 Easy Vegan Recipes to Re-Inspire Your Quarantine Cooking – Vogue

Restaurant News

What cooking has meant to her while in quarantine: “For so many communities, access to healthy food was hard to come by even before quarantine started. This time has made me even more mindful about how I purchase, who I support, and how I can give. We are truly only as well as our community is well. Ultimately, the meaning behind cooking at home hasn’t changed much for me, it’s always been the highest pillar. What is more important to me now, is that others have access to the things they need, so that they may easily make cooking at home their #1 priority, as well.”

Sophia Roe’s Miso Caramel Green Beans


1 pound green beans

1 clove garlic, microplaned

1/2 shallot, microplaned

1/4 cup green onion, green only

1 tbsp miso (I used chickpea miso)

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp maple syrup

1 1/2 tsp rice vinegar

1 tsp chili flake (I like it spicy)

3 tbsp coconut aminos

1/2 tsp sea salt

4 tbsp grapeseed oil

Blanch the green beans in well-salted water for 2 minutes, drain, and place in ice bath. To make the sauce—whisk together garlic, shallot, miso, Dijon mustard, chili, rice vinegar, coconut aminos, and sea salt until thoroughly mixed. Whisk in 3 tbsp grapeseed oil, and add green onion. Set aside. In a pan or wok add remaining grapeseed oil on medium high heat. Right as you see oil start to smoke, add green beans. Toss green beans constantly until you get that yummy charred skin. Add 2 tbsp of sauce while cooking for added caramelization!
