No-Tuna Chickpeas and Shells

By  •  Main Dish

If your freezer is now stocked with bags of freshly-made chickpeas after my tutorial a few weeks ago, I can’t think of anything better to do with them than make this super-simple chickpea tuna salad, which is great on sandwiches or salads, but also makes some amazing no-tuna & shells. In all honesty, I remember tuna and shells tasting super gross when I was a kid. Mayonnaise and canned fish …

How to Cook (and Freeze) Dried Chickpeas

By  •  Basics

I recently started cooking my own chickpeas from scratch instead of buying them canned and there’s at least 37 really good reasons to do this. For example: – They taste a million times better – They cost a fraction of canned chickpeas ($1.60 per pound, or about 4x cheaper) – You can control the sodium – No added chemicals, preservatives, or weird stuff like BPA from the can liners. – …

Easy Orange Glazed Tempeh

This orange tempeh is definitely the most authentic vegan substitute I’ve ever made for orange chicken. There’s layers and layers of delicious orange-soy glaze baked into thin strips of tempeh. Even better, it requires just six natural ingredients like fresh orange juice, and only takes about 30 minutes to bake the amazing glaze into the tempeh, which is the perfect amount of time to cook up some rice and slice …

Chocolate & Cherry Matcha Energy Bars

Three of my favorite flavor combos are chocolate and cherry, matcha and cherry, and chocolate and matcha. I figured I’d try putting them all together into one epic larabar-style date + nut bar and see what happened… They turned out incredible! What I love most about these bars (in addition to having just 6 simple ingredients and taking less than 5 minutes to make) is the layers and layers of …

Wild Rice with Wild Mushrooms and Other Wild Things

By  •  Main Dish

It’s pretty much guaranteed that if you’re looking for a wild rice recipe, it’s going to have wild mushrooms too. Although, unless you’re hunting them yourself, “wild” mushrooms are pretty hard to come by. After scouring local stores for mushrooms, the most exotic I could find were shiitake and oyster. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sticking with the wild theme, I wanted to include as many ingredients as possible that could be called wild. …

Pulled Jackfruit Enchiladas Verdes

By  •  Main Dish

Jackfruit! I can’t believe this is my first ever journey into the crazy world of jackfruit. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, jackfruit is a weird green tropical fruit that can weigh as much as 100 pounds (!) and has a white flesh that kind of tastes like… nothing. So what’s all the fuss about? The texture. It has a firm, meaty texture that …

Boozy Frozen Margarita Cheesecake Cups

By  •  Dessert

“Boozy Frozen Margarita Cheesecake Cups” … do I really need to say anything else about this one? Layered on top of a raw date-nut crust, the flavors in this margarita cheesecake filling are ridiculous. Cashews and nutritional yeast provide a non-dairy cheesecake base. It’s sweetened naturally with maple syrup or agave. Then tequila, lime, and salt seriously bring out the margarita flavors. These are so, so good. In addition, the …

Vegan French Onion Dip from Scratch

Making french onion dip is easy! All you have to do is take 2 cups of sour cream, one cup of mayonnaise, and one of those packets of french onion dip powder. Mix it all together and you’re done! …or not. Developing a vegan, healthy, unprocessed french onion dip from scratch has been on my list for a while. I knew it would be easy to get the flavor and …
