Chocolate Oat Cupcakes with Strawberry Cashew Frosting

I got this recipe from Kris Carr. The cupcakes are SUPER healthy, so I recommend them for a fun snack but not if you are looking to make a dessert that tastes like the real deal. Also, the frosting came out a bit runny so I reduced the amount of soaking water it called for in […]

Vegan “Caprese” Salad

This is a Caprese Salad with tofu instead of mozzarella. I got this recipe from The Veggie-Lover’s Sriracha Cookbook. I was shocked at how delicious the tofu tasted – I didn’t even miss the mozzarella! I have a ton of basil in my garden and am always looking for new basil recipes and I will […]

Zesty Italian Avocado Dressing

My mom sent me this awesome recipe from Kristen Suzanne’s Easy Raw Vegan Salads & Dressings. It yields a large salad shaker of dressing – enough to use for at least a week of salads. So you may want to cut it in half. I served it with an arugula salad. Dressing Ingredients 3/4 cup […]

Mint Chip Smoothie

I got this recipe from Kris Carr and I am obsessed with this smoothie. I altered the quantities a bit – mostly more spinach, mint & cacao! These adjusted quantities yield one serving: Ingredients 1 & 1/2 cups spinach, tightly packed 1 banana, frozen 1 to 2 pitted Medjool dates, pitted 1 & 1/2 tablespoons mint leaves 1 […]

Zucchini “Alfredo” Noodles with Turkey Bacon

I found this recipe on Holistically Engineered. I’m obsessed with my spiralizer so perfect! I had about 3/4 of a pound of cauliflower instead of a pound so I added a carrot, which caused the sauce to be a little more “orange” than what you expect alfredo sauce to look like. But still delicious! I had […]

Spicy Sriracha Nut Dressing

I got this recipe from my friend Jenna Edward’s Cooking Companion book, and she credits the TheKitchn.com for the original recipe. It’s somewhat similar to the dressing I used in this recipe for Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce, but much faster to make! I put the dressing on a bowl of brown rice, stir-fried steak, […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Banana Chocolate Muffins

I found this recipe in an article on mindbodygreen about activated charcoal, and ironically left out the activated charcoal because I needed to make “chocolate cupcakes” for my nephew’s birthday. These muffins are totally delicious and totally passed as cupcakes in his eyes! YUM! I will definitely make them again with the charcoal. Note I […]

Quinoa Broccoli Bowl with Pine Nut “Cheesy” Sauce

I got this recipe from US Weekly who attributes it to address Darby Stanchfield. What I like about it is that the sauce would taste great on lots of dishes, and you can sub in any veggies for the broccoli! The sauce is meant to taste and look a bit like melted cheese. Ingredients 1 […]
