Spicy Mushroom and Chard Winter Soup

I love mushrooms everywhere. Soups, salads, stir fries, veggie burgers, sandwiches, you name it I will put mushrooms on it. This soup’s inspiration started with these awesome enoki mushrooms that I got at the farmers market. They have both white and brown varieties. You can use either for this recipe. Whatever it is, I think […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spiced Vegan Eggplant, Heirloom Tomato and Kale with Quinoa

When you cook eggplant right it’s one of my favorite veggies. Undercooked and it’s one of the worst things to hit your tongue. I really like this recipe because you can let the eggplant continue to simmer, get softer and soak up all the flavors in this mix. The heirloom tomatoes add a sweetness and […]

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. […]
