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

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

Savory Pumpkin Recipe: Pumpkin Chickpea Cauliflower Curry with Cashew Cream Sauce

We just enjoyed our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. The best part? The pumpkin pie! I am transforming the mix for my Pumpkin Custards into a thicker, larger batch for a pumpkin pie filling, along with a homemade oat-and-nut crust. The first trial was fabulous, so I will be finalizing that recipe for you soon… 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

Recipe: Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto

Summer is winding down. Already I’m feeling blue! I’m a summer girl, so it’s hard for me to say farewell to the warm weather – SUNSHINE (vitamin D!) – abundant summer fruits and vegetables – and herbs. One of my cold-weather coping mechanisms is to batch and freeze pesto at the end of summer… for… Continue Reading

Featured PP15 Recipe: Umami Almond, Quinoa, and Sundried Tomato Burgers (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

Mediterranean Bean Burgers (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

I have been wanting to share this recipe with you for SO long. It’s one of my very favorite burger recipes in Let Them Eat Vegan (as many of you know, there is a full burger chapter) – in fact, it’s one of my very favorite veggie burgers of all time! Only two of the… Continue Reading

Mexican Bean Soup with Chipotle Avocado Cream and Guacamole Tip (vegan and gluten-free)

When you open a cookbook, a recipe may “jump out” because of its title, its reputation (we know how blogging can hype a recipe long before a cookbook reaches bookshelves), or of course because of its photos.  With the volume of recipes in LTEV, I almost wish I had written two separate cookbooks so that… 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
