Eggplant is one of those foods I was in love with long before I became vegan, whether in baba ganoush, ratatouille, or my favorite vegetable lasagna recipe. After going vegan, I started looking for new ways to let this versatile aubergine beauty shine as a main dish. Sweet & Spicy Grilled Eggplant is the latest […]
If you’re looking for a go-to energy ball recipe healthy enough to eat every day, this Carrot Cake Energy Balls recipe checks all the boxes! 1) it uses super-nutritious ingredients that taste delicious and work wonders for physical health (even mental clarity!), 2) it’s vegan and WFPBNO (whole-foods, plant-based, no oil) compliant, meaning it’s one […]
This mushroom and bean chili recipe is the latest version of probably a dozen or more rich and ‘meaty’ plant-based chilis I’ve been cooking up most of my life. What I always strive to achieve in a good, authentic-tasting chili recipe is a balanced blend of spices, a just-right beans-to-chili ratio, and most important, a […]
When I first went vegan, this one-pot coconut curried lentils, rice, and greens recipe was one of the very first dishes I created, and it’s still a favorite at our house. We eat this for a whole hoard of occasions. When we are lacking motivation to cook, when we need to feed a large table […]
This vegan Lemony Lentil Turnip Chowder is light and hearty (yep, I think soup can be both light and  hearty!), and a tangy, tasty way to pack nutritional variety into your diet. Since ‘soups on’ in half an hour plus change, this chowder makes a quick, easy and truly satisfying weeknight meal. Why I Love […]
These crispy and spicy sushi bowls are packed with all the good stuff we love in sushi—crispy asparagus, spicy sriracha mayo, lightly pickled fresh veggies, and cool creamy avocado. This combination is SO unbelievably good, you won’t feel deprived. (Honestly, this sushi bowl tastes as good as it looks!) There are hardly words to describe […]
Making vegan desserts really isn’t all that hard. But making delicious, drool-worthy desserts that are vegan, whole-food, plant-based, oil-free, with a gluten-free option? I’d say that’s a challenge. That’s why I’m extra excited about these Baked Tortilla Vegan Cannolis. Why I Love These Vegan Cannolis A few weeks back, my cousin Jen – one uber-talented […]
I’m still trying to master a great, thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizza out of my own kitchen. Until that day arrives (it may never arrive), these vegan Spinach & Cheese Pizza Rolls have become our at-home garlicky, cheesy pizza fix. I’ll definitely be making these vegan spinach & cheese pizza rolls appetizers for upcoming holiday parties. They’re […]
I don’t bake much, but I’ve been on a bit of a quest to come up with vegan desserts that are EXTRA healthy. (Like my Skinny Chocolate Mint Chia Pudding and Skinny Pumpkin Spice Pudding.) So healthy that—dare I say it—they’re even good for you. This Healthy Brownies with Peppermint Frosting recipe is so chock […]
A lot of my recipes are quick and easy, but I’m not gonna lie, this Vegan Mushroom Walnut Bolognese is gonna keep you in the kitchen for an hour, from grabbing the first ingredient out of the fridge to loading the dishwasher. But this rich, hearty, “meaty” sauce is OH-SO worth every minute you’ll spend […]
Kale Mushroom Bread Pudding has bread, it’s savory and it’s pudding(ish)! It could easily be a HEALTHY vegan dish the whole fam-damily will to grow love (well, at least the grown ups). Holiday food is all about comforting carbs, fresh herbs and rich, creamy textures. What could be more comforting than a big helping of […]
