Mediterranean Pasta Salad

Most of us already have a favorite pasta salad in our cooking repertoire, but do you have the perfect vegan pasta salad that you can whip up for any summer party, picnic, or BBQ?

I know I didn’t before this. (more…)

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Like spring cleaning for the house, I know quite a few people who do an annual detox every spring. I’ve done one for the past three years, usually around the beginning of April, but this year I’m a little late (yeah, oops). Being in Kuwait and having the weather already feel like the hottest part of summer back home, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for a spring detox. (more…)

Falafel-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I remember the first time I bit into fresh falafel.

Mike and I were in Amman, Jordan on our honeymoon, out and about just strolling along arm-in-arm, the way you’d expect people on their honeymoon to do. We passed a guy frying up falafel on a street corner; simultaneously, Mike’s stomach growled and I inhaled deeply, asking what that amazing smell was.

You know we had to stop and get some. (more…)

2-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fondue {Paleo}

I know it’s last-minute, but I got you a Valentine’s Day gift.

(You knew I wouldn’t forget about you, right?) (more…)

Healthy Candy Apple Wedges {Paleo}

How many of you will admit to sneaking some of your kid’s Halloween candy when no one is looking?

I don’t have kids (yet!), but yeah, I’d be guilty as charged.

It’s the stuff we won’t buy for ourselves, but if it’s just hanging around, it’s fair game. If you didn’t buy it for yourself, the calories don’t count, right? ;)

I like to have healthier treats that will still satisfy a sweet tooth at the ready. (more…)

Smoky Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Herbed Chickpea Dumplings {Vegan; Grain-Free; Gluten-Free}

Smoky Roasted Cauliflower Soup with Herbed Chickpea Dumplings

This soup is full of surprises.

For starters, if you’re not crazy about cauliflower (no worries, we can still be friends…I had a bad experience a while back and I went through a cauli-averse phase myself…so I get it), this soup might win you over. The broth is off-the-charts flavorful, and by association the cauliflower is pretty fantastic too.

Another surprise, if you’re a big meat eater, you might not miss meat even a little with this hearty soup. The herbed chickpea dumplings are not only rich in fiber and protein, but they kind-of look like meatballs so your eyes might start to play tricks on you. (more…)

Chewy Chocolate, Coconut, and Pecan Granola Bars {No-Bake; Vegan; Gluten-Free}

After eating these granola bars, not only will you never want to buy store-bought granola bars ever again, but you will also never want to make another recipe for chewy granola bars again. I know that’s a mighty tall claim, but I’m standing by it. These bars are that good. (more…)

Chocolate-Covered Toasted Coconut Pops {Popsicle Week}

Most people I know use umbrellas in downpours.

Not me.

I always say I won’t melt and shrug off the fact that I will inevitably look half-drowned after choosing not to use an umbrella; but the truth is I really can’t be bothered with the trouble (which of course is really no trouble at all) of using one (although there’s a quite large pretty black umbrella in my car at all times). I must be some kind of umbrella-phobe. Weird, right?

Now heat is another story. Coupled with high humidity, when temps over 85 hit me I actually do melt. (more…)

Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve {Frozen Treat Week}

By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.)

Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like. The best part is that it has the same creamy texture as soft serve ice cream. (The first time I ever saw banana soft serve was on Gena’s brilliant blog, Choosing Raw.)

As you can imagine, this delicious treat is incredibly versatile and completely perfect for when you want ice cream but don’t want ice cream. (Ladies, you know what I mean.) (more…)

3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet {Frozen Treat Week}

There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for.

Silly things.

Like this caramelized onion + goat cheese omelet, this cabbage hash + fried eggs, or this pretty little breakfast number.

Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes. (more…)
