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 …

Vegan Cinnamon Dolce Gelato

By  •  Dessert

This vegan gelato is unlike anything I’ve ever made before. It has flavors of cinnamon and caramel, like a sweet cinnamon bun, with a rich soft-serve texture that melts in your mouth. But in contrast with virtually every other vegan ice cream recipe I’ve seen, there’s no coconut milk and no banana. It’s actually made from almond butter. Stay with me… Back in my Cheesy Vegan eBook (which you all …

Peach & Coconut Chia Pudding

As you can see from the photos below, the fruit trees at my community garden are a bit ridiculous right now. There are literally thousands of peaches and nectarines on these trees and I’ve been bringing home more fruit than I know what to do with… I’ve also been eating a lot of chia pudding lately and realized that I’ve never shared my favorite basic chia pudding recipe with you …

Udon Noodle Stir-Fry with Sesame Broth

By  •  Main Dish

Udon noodles, as you probably know, are Japanese-style wheat noodles. On the surface, they seem a lot like Italian pasta, and the two are more similar than different (both are wheat-based noodles). The main difference is that udon are made with a different type of wheat that results in a softer, more “plump” texture when cooked. You would traditionally serve udon in a full soup broth, but I didn’t like …

Arugula, Grapefruit, and Avocado Salad

Arugula, Grapefruit, and Avocado Salad

There is no question that grapefruit + avocado is one of the best and most underrated flavor combos this world has to offer. It’s probably not something you’d expect, and it’s a bit counterintuitive, but the sweet acidity of the grapefruit with the creaminess of the avocado is heaven. In this salad, I’ve also added a few other supporting characters like arugula, chopped mint, deglet noor dates, and a drizzle …

Alfredo Sauce 2.0 with Cauliflower and Cashews

By  •  Main Dish

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted a vegan Alfredo sauce recipe. In fact, it’s not even the second time. But I think this one is the best. What we have here is a simple 8-ingredient mashup of all the best cream sauces I’ve made over the years. It’s part cauliflower Alfredo (which everyone knows about by now), part cashew Alfredo, which is super creamy but really high in fat …

Easy Single-Serving Almond Cakes with Maple Glaze

By  •  Dessert

Almond flour isn’t something I use too often, but it’s a great ingredient. Since it’s just pulverized almonds, it isn’t a real flour that will absorb water and rise in backed goods, but combined with wheat flour, it adds a great flavor and rich but fluffy texture. Today, we’ll be using it to make a fluffy French Almond Cake, just like Julia Child’s. Except nothing like Julia Child’s. This vegan …
