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 […]

Spaghetti Squash Tacos

I could eat tacos for every meal of the day and not get sick of them (breakfast tacos anyone?). Endless combinations and they are usually small enough where you can try at least 3 different kinds of tacos and feel great about it. I’ve been experimenting with a number of different combos, but usually I […]

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 […]

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 Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing

  This dressing is bright and creamy. It goes great with any southwest salad, as a sandwich spread, or taco topping. You can add a little more water if you like it thinner, but don’t add any more than a tablespoon at a time so you can taste test as you go. Let me know […]

Charred Spicy Mustard Green Beans

This is a super simple side dish that packs some great flavor. You can use any mustard that you like to add some awesome flavor and when it browns in the pan it just all blends together in crunchy mustardy awesomeness. I used a smokey chipotle mustard for mine. What do you think? What kind […]

Chive Lemon Salad Dressing

This salad dressing is a nice tart complement to any basic mixed greens salad and a great use of extra chives (which if you buy chives, you probably have extra). I used it with mixed greens from the farmers market along with some cherry tomatoes and fresh cucumber. Very simple, but a great side salad […]
