Creamy Red Curry Lentil Soup (vegan)

A hearty soup that is both comforting and filling while packing a lot of nutrition into one bowl.

Soup season is finally here.  I’m ready to welcome cooler nights where you can cozy up to your favorite bowl of homemade soup.  The best thing about soup season is the ease of cooking with ONE pot.  One-pot, […]

Kale Pesto Pizza (gluten-free) with Vegan Parm

Mission impossible! Pizza night while avoiding gluten, eggs, soy, corn, dairy and coconut.

Pizza is usually out of the question for anyone who is vegan, has dietary restrictions or is trying to eat healthy. Not anymore – I have conquered the allergy-friendly pizza challenge!  You can actually enjoy an entirely vegan, gluten-free and allergy-friendly pizza without worrying […]

Hidden Greens Chocolate-Cherry Protein Smoothie

Chocolate…Sweet Cherries…Protein…Greens…Antioxidants…Fiber… too much!  I almost didn’t know what to call this decadent creation without it having the longest title in recipe history!  It is basically a meal replacement since it contains vegetables, protein and antioxidants (all from plant-based sources).  And did I mention it contains over a cup of packed spinach that you can’t […]

Strawberry Guacamole

June is officially here!  Which means it is the start of strawberry season when you can enjoy this amazing fruit at the peak of flavor!

Sesame-Cilantro Roasted Sweet Potatoes Drizzled with Creamy Tahini Sauce

Crispy (and slightly spicy) sweet potatoes are drenched in a creamy tahini sauce that makes this side dish mouth watering.  The cilantro garnish adds a gourmet twist that is unexpected and yet perfectly pairs with the nutty sesame and spicy chili flavor of these roasted beauties.

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite veggies.  Sweet […]

Roasted Garlic-Shallot Potatoes with Creamy Dill Sauce

Ho-hum potatoes are livened up with a thick and creamy dill sauce. Dill screams spring-time and adds a fresh spark to recipes.

Garlic lovers will rejoice in these crispy and fresh tasting potato cubes.

Potatoes have gotten a bad reputation because of how they are typically prepared: doused in butter, deep-fried or topped with bacon and […]

Roasted Acorn Squash with Cranberry Pecan Quinoa

I am currently the lucky recipient of a winter Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and this week received a beautiful acorn squash in my batch of local goodies (along with some mushrooms and green onions).  Acorn squash has a mellow flavor and yet meaty and satisfying texture.  It is considered a good source of the antioxidant vitamin C […]
