Flax Crackers with Vegan Parmesan and Italian Herbs

As I’ve talked about recently, I love flax. It has a million health benefits, from Omega-3’s to antioxidants, fiber, blood sugar regulation, and so much more. Even Gandhi said that “wherever flaxseeds become a regular food item among the people, there will be better health.” One of my favorite ways to eat flax (outside of my thumbprint cookies, of course) is in crackers. The flavor combo in this recipe is …

Baked Taquitos with Cauliflower and Black Bean Filling

It may sound bizarre if you’ve never tried it, but my favorite ingredient for creating a meaty taco-like filling is actually cauliflower. By pulverizing a head of cauliflower in a food processor into small bits, and then sautéing it with some spices, shallots, beans, and corn, you have a super-delicious filling that has both the flavor and texture of taco filling. But the fun doesn’t stop there, because then we’re …

Cheesy Vegan BBQ Potato Skins

When I was growing up, over half my family worked at a local BBQ restaurant. I haven’t been there in 10+ years, but I still remember the exact flavors of their potato skins – baked potato halves, scooped out and filled with BBQ sauce, chicken, cheese, cilantro, and red onions. This week I had the crazy idea of recreating a healthier vegan version of these BBQ potato skins and, wow, …

Creamy Pasta Salad with Shaved Brussels Sprouts

Sometimes being a recipe developer is easier than people think; just throw a bunch of awesome ingredients into a pan, sauté them, and it’s probably going to be delicious. That’s basically what we’re doing here. We’ll cook some shaved Brussels sprouts, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and artichoke hearts together, then toss them with pasta that has been coated in a creamy avocado-based dressing for a unique and flavorful pasta salad. But …

The Incredible Pesto Hummus Super-Spread

The Incredible Pesto Hummus Super-Spread

If you think about it, the crossover between pesto and hummus is quite significant… They’re both simple purees made in a food processor, both ingredient lists call for lemon juice and garlic, they both include a creamy element (tahini or pine nuts), and they’re both spreads that go well on flatbreads. Why not take everything great about hummus, add the missing pieces of a pesto, and create one epic super-spread? …

Grilled Cashew-Parmesan Corn with Smoked Paprika Sauce

This weekend kicked off the beginning of summer and I figured it would be appropriate to celebrate with a recipe for the quintessential summer food: corn on the cob! Not just any corn, of course, but crazy, over-the-top grilled corn on the cob drenched in a creamy vegan smoked paprika sauce and sprinkled with an herbed cashew-based parmesan cheese. It’s a super easy recipe that only uses a few different …

Kale Kluster Granola

Kale has had an interesting history on this blog… from adding it to cookies, to blending it into pudding, and even drenching it with chocolate – finding bizarre uses for this leafy green is nothing new around here. What we’re making today takes things a step further. Part kale chip, part granola, part superfood snack; these little kale klusters are something completely different. By gently baking a mixture of kale, …

Super-Fresh Sunflower Chard Wraps

Don’t you feel like chard (with its gigantic leaves and bright red veins) belongs in some kind of prehistoric jungle? When I was growing this leafy green in my garden last season, I left it alone for a few weeks and came back to find that the leaves had grown to 2+ feet in size! I half expected to look up and see a brachiosaurus reaching down to take a …
