Not Your Mother’s Coleslaw

Inspired by the currently-trendy Dole chopped salad kits, this dairy+egg free coleslaw eschews the sugar-laden and oft-dairy-based dressing packet. A while back, I came across two of these salad kits at a remarkable discount. Though I don’t think I’ve made a salad from a store-bought “kit” since 1999, at $1 for both I had little to lose (and inspiration to gain). Continue Reading

Kale, Mushroom & Green Pea Quiche

I envisioned this quiche recipe and decided to give it a shot, despite the fact that I’ve never made quiche before.

For a totally improvised creation, I’m impressed. The flavors are definitely on point (cashews + nutritional yeast make a cheez so close to the real thing I’ve yet to meet a cheese aficionado that doesn’t agree, and black salt give it that sulfur-esque flavor that brings authenticity to vegan “egg” dishes). Continue Reading

Flourless, Soy-Free Banana Blueberry Muffins

I’ve never had much of an affinity for muffins. As a kid, I liked the buttery, sugary, crumble topping. I would then succumb to boredom and pass off the rest to whomever would finish it. These muffins bear little resemblance, nutritionally speaking, to those empty-calorie abominations. Not only do these taste delicious, they will transform your concept of what a muffin is.

Roasted Asparagus Bisque + Cauliflower-Coconut Croutons

This Roasted Asparagus Soup with Paleo Croutons is very low in carbohydrates, and contains a lesser amount of fat per gram than most blended soups. I’ve focused a lot on coconut milk-blended soups this winter, the both of which contained a much higher quantity of the aforementioned high-fat ingredient than this one. Continue Reading

Thai Chili Green Pea Hummus

thai-chili-green-pea-hummus

I decided to name this recipe Thai Chili Green Pea Hummus, since Sambal Olek chili paste (the kind with the drawing of a rooster on the gold-tinted label with the green cap) is the inspiration behind it. To give it a more notably Thai flavor I added Thai basil and ginger root along with the garlic. I did not have access to fresh lemongrass, but lemongrass is an ingredient in the green curry paste, so… Continue Reading

Beet & Red Cabbage Sauerkraut

beet and red cabbage kraut

Beet & Red Cabbage Sauerkraut especially when paired with avocado is a food often touted in the same respect as cheese *both have probiotic qualities—and since the advent of the raw vegan sauerkraut phoenomenon—both have a veil surrounding them regarding the fallacy of their difficult-to-make-yourself psychological red tape [we think we can’t make it ourselves, or aren’t supposed to].

Coconut Cream of Mushroom Soup

Coconut Cream Chanterelle Mushroom Soup

Perfect for Thanksgiving, this soup doubles as a gravy. It is oil free, utilizing fat free sauté and grill techniques. It is also soy free, grain free, gluten free and nut free [no, coconut is not a tree nut–even though it does grow on trees–nor is it related to the legume we refer to as the peanut]. Unless you or anyone you cook for is allergic to coconut, mushrooms, or garlic, this recipe should be universally edible and a sure hit across the board (I’m serious, even the staunch meat eater or otherwise anti-vegan family among you will enjoy this).

Curried Coconut Butternut Bisque

curried-coconut-butternut-bisque

I’m kind of obsessed with winter squash right now. Need proof? See my last post. Expect a plethora of squash-based recipes in the near future. Squash soup should be considered a comfort food, and roasted squash seeds are a bona fide healthy-ish binge food. To combat depression stemming from the results of the 2016 election, I’m eating a lot of squash. Because I feel sort of…squashed. Please enjoy this recipe, and use it to sooth your soul.
