Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

We just love Brussels sprouts and we were out at a nice restaurant recently and they had caramelized Brussels sprouts on the menu and we got really excited. We asked if they were cooked in butter (yes), and requested to have them cooked in olive oil instead. They said they couldn’t do it. We were bummed, but not for long. I decided to […]

Roasted Butternut Squash & Pear Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash & Pear Soup

This roasted butternut squash and pear soup is aromatic, savory yet slightly sweet, and bursting with flavor. Smoky cumin and sweet cinnamon combine perfectly to make this soup rich, complex, and very satisfying. I chose to leave out the non-dairy cream in this soup. I felt it was smooth and creamy enough on its own, and the lack of added fat makes this […]

Olive Tapenade

Olive Tapenade

Olive tapenades are a great appetizer to serve guests. They hold up well to sitting around for the duration of a party, can be eaten easily by hand, and are bursting with fresh Mediterranean flavor. The preferred green olive to use in this recipe is the Castelvetrano. Castelvetrano olives are produced exclusively in Castelvetrano, Sicily, and we eat them by the handful; they […]

Vegan Street Tacos

Vegan Street Tacos

We’ve had this butternut squash sitting on the kitchen counter for about a week; I just didn’t know what to make with it. Then suddenly it hit me: Vegan Street Tacos with roasted butternut squash, pico de gallo, and cilantro lime cream sauce! Street tacos are typically sold out of stands or trucks, only have a few ingredients, and are eaten by hand. […]

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

This is a very rich and creamy dessert that tastes surprisingly similar to (and possibly even better than) pumpkin pie. I like to top it with coconut whipped cream, and I’ve found a great recipe and step-by-step photo tutorial for making it here. This is  the perfect dessert to share with non-vegan friends and family around the holidays; they’ll be pleasantly surprised how […]

Marinated Tofu & Veggie Stir-Fry

Marinated Tofu & Veggie Stir-Fry

Stir-fries are a great way to clean out the fridge, we like to toss in whatever we have on hand. This dish is high in protein and carbs, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and super quick and easy. I like to carbo-load with dishes like this – vegetables are naturally high in carbohydrates and brown rice is a no-brainer. How do you carbo-load? […]

White Bean & Corn Chili

White Bean & Corn Chili

Beans are an incredibly rich source of protein, iron, carbohydrates, and dietary fiber; they are a staple in a plant-based diet. Swiss chard is one of the earth’s healthiest foods, high in vitamins A, K, and C, and rich in minerals, iron, dietary fiber, and protein. The addition of Swiss chard to this chili makes it a nutritional power house. Besides being incredibly […]

Fall Pear & Apple Crisp

Fall Pear & Apple Crisp

Fall fruits are always amazing, and this dessert brings the best of the fall fruits together in such a beautiful way. I prefer sweet apples over tart, and the Fuji has long been my favorite. I eat Fuji apples every day when they are in season, so I thought I’d try them baked in a cobbler or crisp and see how they held […]

Grateful Grahams are simply perfect. If you’re thinking this is just another graham cracker, go out and buy a bag and see for yourself why they put the typical graham cracker to shame. They are all natural, all vegan, and completely delicious. They currently come in two tasty flavors, cinnamon sugar, and chocolate, but other flavors have been seen around town lately like […]
