Gluten Free Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Buffalo cauliflower is a pretty consistent vegan and vegetarian favorite for cooking at home and a restaurant appetizer. Most the recipes I found online were using white flour so I thought I would try and make a gluten-free version. I used almond flour for this version, I want to experiment with some other flours that […]

Simple Kale Almond Pecorino Salad with a Lemon Shallot Dressing

This salad is really easy to make and really delicious. I could eat it all day in a giant mixing bowl. I may have done that. I don’t always massage my kale mostly out of laziness. It’s always worth it and always better when you do. It breaks it down and makes it easier to […]

Coconut Cauliflower & Herb Mashed ‘Potatoes’

First off, there are no actual potatoes in this recipe. It’s cauliflower and celeriac (a celery bulb) mashed together in potato-like fashion. Don’t expect the texture to be the exact same, but the flavor is great and it functions just as well as a side dish that’s a little healthier for you. If you were […]

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa

MORE SQUASH! That’s what winter makes me yell to the people. And by the people I mean myself as I gorge on endless variations of this delicious winter vegetable. This was inspired by a quinoa stuffed squash that I had read about a while back and had been meaning to try. I also love it […]

Ginger Cinammon Delicata Squash – Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes

I’ve had a squash overload lately and been looking for new things to do besides my usual roasting and souping. I had actually never cooked with delicata squash before, I had only eaten it in restaurants. It’s pretty great too cook with since you don’t need to skin it which is a pain with butternut […]

Quinoa Salad with Corn and Cherry Tomatoes

This salad is super easy to make, delicious, and healthy. You can add additional lemon juice to taste if you like. You could also experiment using lime juice and other herbs like basil or cilantro. It’s best if you store it in the fridge for at least an hour before serving for the flavors to blend […]

Banana Almond Butter and Kale Smoothie

I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies lately and this is one of my favorite new combinations. Its easy, tastes awesome and it keeps me full longer than a lot of other smoothies. The kale adds a great color and additional texture to the mix. For the granola you can use plain granola or a […]

Charred Chopped Vegetable Salad

This salad was initially inspired by a salad I had at an Italian restaurant in LA called Cecconi’s. They had this great chopped salad with charred zucchini and I loved the flavor that it brought. I loved it so much that I decided to char everything in this salad that combines veggies from the end […]

Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder with a Kick

The secret to the creaminess in this chowder is coconut cream. If you’ve never cooked with it before, it’s a great way to add non-dairy creaminess to soup, curry, desserts, sauces and more. It only has a slight coconut taste. I got mine at Trader Joe’s, but you can also find it on Amazon. To […]

Pickled Red Onions with Ginger

Sometimes (always) I end up with more veggies that I can eat before they go bad. When this is happening I’ll turn to pickling, sauces, freezing, stock or other last ditch efforts to not waste the goods. This is one of those cases. These pickled red onions are sweet and crunchy with a little kick. […]
