Our office has plenty of recipe suggestions that are both easy to make and easy on the planet.

Mug Brownie

"This recipe is super simple and uses minimal cookware. For added sustainability, use all natural and organic ingredients. Mix four tablespoons flour, four tablespoons sugar, two tablespoons cocoa powder, two tablespoons vegetable oil, two tablespoons water, one half teaspoon vanilla extract, and a dash of salt in a microwave-safe mug or bowl. Microwave it for one minute, and you have yourself a delectable, fudge brownie!

Cilantro Salad

"This fresh salad adds a new taste to any meal. Simple chop one bunch of cilantro and an equal part shredded cabbage, then toss them together. Squeeze one half of a lemon over it, ensuring to avoid getting seeds into your salad. Finally, add salt and pepper to taste, then toss again." - Gennifer Geer, Communications Intern

Caccio e Pepe

"The name of this classic Roman pasta dish literally means “cheese and pepper” and it is a delicious vegetarian-friendly entree. It only takes about 20 minutes to prepare, and with just five ingredients it is very accessible to beginners. Click here for the recipe." - Richard Johnson, Sustainability Director

Veronica's Picks

"When I went vegan nearly two years ago, I struggled to find pre-cooked vegan meals and desserts. To keep from starving, I had to cook food for myself. Luckily, I found several amazing recipes. These are my favorites." - Veronica Johnson, Sustainability Alumni.
