This probably should have been a Cinco de Mayo post – I guess I’m a little late to the party!! Neither here nor there, this tasty, filling, and perfectly-spiced Mexican dish is going to rock your world. Does “ethnic” cuisine seem like a daunting task that you could very easily screw up? (slowly raises hand…) That’s why I like to rely on others to do the work. In...

Pasta + sauce = easy dinner. But those jarred sauces are full of sodium, as well as vegetables that have been treated enough to give them a shelf life. Not to mention, they’re usually pretty pricey too. I have a much better option for you. This recipe (which is a “blend and go”) combines a number of veggies in just the right combination to give...

Easy, creamy, basil dip. We’ll get to that. Do you ever see those pictures on Instagram of perfectly manicured fruit and veggie plates, with dozens of perfectly plump berries and leaves, on a perfectly rustic backdrop, with perfectly all-natural, mid-day lighting? I know you have. Don’t lie. Also, don’t get me wrong – I love them. They represent the “food ideal,”...

Some of the top complaints I hear from people who would, in theory, like to go vegan are: -the recipes are too difficult -vegan food doesn’t taste as good -fake meats are too expensive Well, my dears, this recipe is for you. Easy. Delicious. Cheap. This is the trifecta of vegan food.   The original recipe for Black Bean Burgers is a super easy, one-pot recipe. Everything in, everything...

Two worlds of amazing foods are about to collide. Chickpeas are part of the legume family and a favorite among vegans for their wonderful taste and extreme versatility. You’ll often find them in salads, stews, falafel, various Indian dishes, and the all-time favorite hummus. Pancakes were gifted to humanity (among so many other things!) by the ancient Greeks. Even...

In my younger years, I had the good fortune to travel the world and live abroad in various fun places for work. At the time, I was vegetarian, but not vegan. This means that I still have the taste of various cheese-and-egg-based foreign specialties in my mind and can work to recreate them, veganized, for all of us to share. One of those local specialities is Brazilian pão de queijo, or quite literally,...

One thing I love about asparagus is that it’s so easy to find. While it’s peak growing season is from February to June, it seems to me that it’s growing somewhere year round, because it is perpetually available in my local supermarket. So even in those dreary winter months you can get your hands on some delicious greenery that reminds you of spring. There are a ton of health benefits...

Where do you stand on oatmeal? I’ll admit here and now, I’m not a fan! I don’t know how I got to be in my 30s without ever having tasted oatmeal, but I can tell you that I don’t think I was missing much! I am, however, very big on healthy, nourishing breakfasts though, and thus was born my Apple “Oats” recipe. No oatmeal here– in fact, this oatmeal lookalike is...

CNN Travel wrote an article last year ranking, in their opinion, the best cuisines across the world. You will be thoroughly unsurprised to hear that Italian food came in at number one. And honestly, who can argue with that? I can’t. Spaghetti. Pizza. Roasted garlic tomato sauce. Gnocchi. Minestrone soup. Rosemary focaccia. I’ll let your imagination handle the rest because I’m getting...

7-Layer Dip is a staple of football parties everywhere. And with Super Bowl XLIX (49!) coming up, there’s no reason that vegans shouldn’t partake in this great culinary tradition.

Prep: 30 minutes ~ Serves: 8 The 7 layers, from bottom to top, are: Layer 1:...
