Walnut-Pecan Balls – and Reminiscing

My very first recipe for a vegan meatball was in The Everyday Vegan. That recipe isn’t a traditional meatball, more of an asian-fusion with flavors of hoisin, miso, cilantro and paired with a sweet and sour sauce. It’s actually one of my favorite recipes from TEV, though I rarely make them now (new recipe development… Continue Reading

Clean Eating: Smoky Sweet Potato and Black Bean Salad

Out goes December with its indulgent dinners and desserts… and in comes January with cleanses, detox plans, and unfortunately – quick-fix diets. Silly diet programs aside, do you do cleanses or detox plans this time of year? I have never done a cleanse or detox. I could very well benefit from one, I”m not sure!… Continue Reading

Protein-Rich Foods Kids Will Love: Today’s Parent

As parents raising children on a plant-based diet, the question of protein is always present. At first we question ourselves. After researching we come to understand how a whole-foods vegan diet provides ample protein, and are (usually!) at ease with the issue. Yet, the question remains, as we are often asked about protein by friends,… Continue Reading

Hummus Tortilla Pizzas: How-To and Hummus/Topping Suggestions

I’ve always loved thin-crust pizzas. Just as I am very fond (understatement) of sauces and dips, I enjoy a thin crust pizza because it lets all the flavors and the textures of the toppings shine through! Sure, there are times for that comforting dough-y pizza, but I’ll choose a crispy, thin crust brimming with tasty… Continue Reading

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread: Whole-Grain Vegan Breads To Love!

The past few weeks on my facebook page I’ve been posting some of the lunches I pack for the girls at school. After posting a sandwich that I made for hubby, I was asked: “Did you make the bread?” “Any suggestions for good vegan commercially made bread besides Ezekiel?” A1: No. (breathe a sigh of relief,… Continue Reading

Now Available!: Plant-Powered 15 ebook (vegan, oil-free, gluten-free)

So, the last few months you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to. I’ve been posting plenty of recipes, but haven’t been talking much about personal things or our family. Truth is, I have been swamped since September with both work and mama responsibilities, and it’s been challenging to keep up. (My next… Continue Reading

Sugar-Free Vegan Caramel Apples

Pumpkinfest continues today with a sweet treat for Halloween (and while technically there’s no pumpkin in this recipe, it is entirely pumpkin-related!) Did you love caramel and candy apples as a kid?  I sure did, though as a juvenile junk-food-junkie, I opted to eat the caramel or candy – but leave the apple behind (so… Continue Reading

Curried Chickpea Hummus with Raisins

I am not a hummus purist. If you have ed&bv (with its full chapter on hummus), you know this.  In my world, hummus is a food group. So, why not have some fun with it?  Use different beans, different nut/seed butters, and different seasonings?  A perfect example of taking hummus in a new direction is… Continue Reading
