Portobello “Roast Beef” Sandwiches with Vegan Chipotle Mayo

Portobello “Roast Beef” Sandwiches with Vegan Chipotle Mayo

By  •  Main Dish

Mushrooms are definitely my favorite meat substitute. Sliced very thin and sautéed with a little soy sauce and garlic, they’re melt-in-your-mouth soft and bursting with amazing umami flavors. I’ve used that same process in many, many recipes, but today I want to take it a step further to make slices of “roast beef.” By using portobello mushrooms, we can make large, thin slices that fold perfectly onto a sandwich for …

Quinoa Tabbouleh with Lentils and Olives

By  •  Main Dish

Tabbouleh is the Mediterranean dish of bulgur wheat with finely-chopped parsley, lemon juice, and often mint and tomatoes as well. Over the years, I’ve developed my own version of this dish with a base of quinoa instead of wheat, lots of parsley, and whatever else I have on hand. In fact, over 4 years ago, this quinoa tabbouleh was the second-ever recipe I posted on this blog. Just look at …

California Sushi Roll with Vegan Crab Meat

By  •  Main Dish

Vegan sushi is one of my favorite meals. It might sound like an oxymoron since sushi is basically synonymous with fish, but a veggie roll with avocado and rice in some nori is basically the perfect plant-based meal. Recently I started thinking about how to make a vegan version of the classic California roll with cucumber, avocado, and crab. The interesting thing is, many California rolls are made with Surimi, …

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Superfood Smoothie Bowl

By  •  Breakfast

Literally four years after first posting my chocolate peanut butter cup oatmeal recipe, I still eat it almost every single morning. My infatuation with that flavor combo led to a whole raft of chocolate peanut butter recipes – from cakes to pancakes, to pies and even actual peanut butter cups (which are pretty amazing…). Some readers even threatened to brand me as the two ingredient chef… I eventually vowed never …

Peanut-Glazed Sweet Potatoes + A Quinoa Buddha Bowl

By  •  Main Dish

When you think of sweet potatoes, peanut butter might not be the first thing you think to pair with them, but I recently discovered that the two couldn’t be better together. The sweet, starchy potatoes and the creamy peanut butter are perfection. In this recipe, we’re dicing the potatoes and baking them with a peanut-soy-sesame glaze that bakes around each bite. Seriously, this is one of those recipes where I …

Easy Slow-Cooker Potato Ratatouille

Ratitoue, er, rattitoullie, uh, Ratuhtwoey? However you spell it, the only reason any of us have ever heard of this simple French vegetable dish is because of the Pixar movie. There’s actually a lot of different ways it can be made, but all of them involve thinly-slicing squash, peppers, onions, and usually eggplant into thin rounds and lining them around a pan with herbs and butter. Since my garden is …

Watermelon & Rosemary Margaritas

By  •  Beverage

Last week I was experimenting with new cocktail ideas and stumbled onto this combination of rosemary + watermelon in addition to the traditional margarita ingredients of tequila and lime. It might sound bizarre, but this is one of the best flavor combos I’ve ever tasted in a cocktail recipe. First, the rosemary. It’s no secret that herbs work extremely well in drinks. The alcohol brings out the fragrant oils in …
