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 …

Tostadas with Caramelized Mushrooms and Fresh Tomatillo Salsa

By  •  Main Dish

Crispy corn tortillas… tender caramelized mushrooms… guacamole… a fresh tomatillo & corn salsa… and lime-infused cashew sour cream. Is it okay if I skip the part where I tell you this is the greatest thing you’ll ever taste, etc., so that we can get right down to the recipe itself? Now, there’s no question that these tostadas take a bit of work, but your time will be greatly rewarded because …

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 …

One-Dish Quick Quinoa Queso Skillet with Chipotles

By  •  Main Dish

In my opinion, quinoa is the perfect food: complete protein, complex carbs, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s no wonder that the Inca warriors ate quinoa before going into battle, and NASA is considering it as a primary crop for long-term space travel. As many quinoa recipes as I’ve posted over the years, this Quick Quinoa Queso Skillet is my new favorite – the flavors are INSANE. You’ve got the smokiness …

Classic Thai Red Curry with Tofu and Mushrooms

By  •  Main Dish

I’m lucky enough to live in a city where there are several amazing vegan-friendly Thai restaurants; green curries, yellow curries, red curries, tom yum soup, pad see ew, pad Thai, and of course Thai iced tea with coconut milk. Amazing vegan Thai food is never more than a few blocks away. Naturally, I’ve been inspired to start exploring Thai cooking at home lately, and I thought I’d share my recipe …

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, …

Loaded Nachos with Cashew Cheese and Maple-Chili Tempeh

By  •  Main Dish

Vegan nachos! I’ve made many a cashew cheese over the last few years, and each of them has a slightly different purpose. There are sauces for macaroni, fillings for quesadillas, a straight cashew cheese, and quite a few others. But this one, oh, it’s just perfect. The right cheddary color, the right consistency, the right flavors. Everything. I just want to dip tortilla chips in it all day long, and …

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 …
