The ingredients in this smoothie help flush away toxins and restore the natural balance of your body, which can be helpful after the holidays. If you had one too many sugar cookies at Christmas, …

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Shots

By  •  Beverage

Once upon a time, I did an interview where I was asked, “If we looked through your kitchen, what would we be most surprised to see?” I replied, “The inordinate amount of chocolate products… There’s Columbian dark chocolate, Swiss dark chocolate, Belgian dark chocolate, vegan chocolate chips, cacao nibs, cacao powder, cocoa powder, and cacao butter, and more…” It is true, I have a chocolate addiction. The cacao bean, in …

Cheesy Chickpea Omelets with Mushrooms & Spinach

There are a lot of classic dishes that I have been able to recreate with plant-based ingredients. Cheese, sauces, meat substitutes? No problem. Scrambled eggs, however, were always in that “impossible” category. The egg is so unique (they say) that you just can’t recreate it. Except, you can… Why am I just now learning that chickpea flour works magically well to simulate the feeling of scrambled eggs (even the color …

Risotto Bianco with Pesto & Asparagus

By  •  Main Dish

This risotto with pesto represents one of the most important milestones in my experience with cooking. Many years ago, before I really knew what I was doing in the kitchen, I found some recipes by Jamie Oliver (including a risotto with pesto) and thought it would be fun to try cooking something more in-depth than my typical brown rice and tofu. I went slow. Each recipe would take all afternoon. …

Kicked-Up Classic Corn Chowder

Corn chowder is simple. Pour some vegetable broth and cream into a pot, dump in some corn and chopped potatoes, then simmer until cooked. That might be corn chowder, but it’s also kind of… boring? Here, we’re taking a different spin on this dish to create something that’s very flavorful and complex, while still keeping the core simplicity of the corn chowder we all know and love. For starters, we’ll …

Tigernut Carob Energy Bites

Let’s just start with the only question on your mind right now: “What the heck are tigernuts and why have I never heard of them before?” Confusingly, tigernuts are not a nut and they have nothing to do with tigers. They’re also nothing new, but an extremely old root vegetable that was first cultivated in Egypt several thousand years ago. With healthy prebiotics, no allergens, low-glycemic starches, fiber, and tons …

Baked McTofu Nuggets

Tofu. It’s so… “vegan” isn’t it? I can’t tell you how many nights of sleep I’ve lost (zero) trying to figure out how to remove the stigma associated with tofu. The problem isn’t the ingredient, it’s the preparation. Think of tofu like a block of white canvas just waiting for you to do something great with it. It can have amazing flavor and texture only IF you treat it with …

Chai-Infused Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

By  •  Beverage

If you’ve been reading lately, it should be obvious that fall is my favorite season and I cannot wait for it to get started. Unfortunately, temperatures in California are still in the triple digits, so baking a pie is out of the question. That’s why I decided to get creative and make a compromise. A really delicious compromise. It’s a frosty and refreshing smoothie with all the wonderful flavors of …
