A simple side dish packed with flavor, this sun-dried tomato and garlic infused bulgur rice dish is the perfect accompaniment to your next meal. It has a deep garlic flavor that is piqued with the earthy textures and scents of sun-dried tomatoes, butter, and bulgur rice. Feel free to add your choice of herbs for even more fragrance! Enjoy!
This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The sugar is replaced with turbinado and the chocolate chips with carob chips. It’s easy and cooks in a mere 10-12 minutes. These have a soft, cakey texture with a slight caramel twang.
For breakfast, look to none other than coconut milk to create a sweet, vanilla-flavored yogurt that is easy to digest and reminiscent of Summer. For this recipe, I create a parfait using apricots and green apple. Feel free to use whatever fruits you like. Enjoy!
I created a polenta pizza topped with sautéed sweet potatoes and mixed veggies. It’s a unique twist on an Italian classic, using flavors that won’t really remind you of pizza at all, but it will feign the pizza experience. It is absolutely delicious and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Make sure you try a slice!
I’m always interested in noodle varieties that are not plain white noodles. Soba noodles are buckwheat-based, which means they are easier on digestion and introduce new flavors to my palette. This recipe keeps it simple with a few vegetables. Enjoy!
Breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day should be something that singles mom out and lets her have it all. This single-serving egg dish incorporates savory flavors that comes together in a small ramekin or small pot. Serve with a side of bread, and mom will star the day off with protein, vegetables, and loads of flavor. Lucky for you, it’s easy to make. Enjoy!
This cake didn’t last very long. Among three girls and a vacant fork aside the cake as it sat on the table to cool down, this vegan chocolate cake never made it to the party. Not what you’d expect from a cake without eggs and milk, eh? Make these into cupcakes or make multiple layers. However you dress it up, the taste remains indulgent and deep with chocolate flavor. Enjoy!
I really adore peas, but I’m used to buying them in a can, when they’re already softened by a brine and somewhat at a loss of nutrients. Using fresh peas, I was able to enjoy peas in a healthier, unprocessed way. And green beans were never my cup of tea, until I learned how delicious they were when piping hot, slightly browned, and spiced to perfection – they didn’t have to drown in a sauce or be overpowered by other ingredients to taste good. This recipe is so easy and the perfect side dish to any meal.
I’m in love with turnips and I didn’t know that until this week! I’ve never cooked with them before, because for some reason, I assumed that they were bitter like radishes. Au contraire! It’s mellow in flavor and actually quite delicious raw. For this recipe, I cook it like I would a potato in a gratin. However, the resulting dish has far fewer carbs but packs just as much taste! Enjoy!
Instead of corn bread, why not corn balls? They complement a meal with a starchy side note and offer a warm, comforting flavor to the experience. These simple corn bread balls are done in minutes and spiced lightly with black pepper. Enjoy!
