VEGAN SPAGHETTI CARBONARA

Smoky marinated cremini mushrooms and peas are tossed with spaghetti in a silky tofu and cashew sauce to create this decadently delicious vegan carbonara. I waited tables all throughout college. By that time, I’d been a vegetarian for quite a while, but none of the establishments that I served in were meatless. Things could get […]

Creamy Chili Sauce with Zucchini, Spinach and Pasta

Vegan and gluten-free Creamy Chili Sauce with Zucchini, Spinach and Pasta. An incredibly creamy, rich and yet light with no oil or butter. Just whole food ingredients. So much flavor from Italian dried herbs and chili powder and tomato sauce. If there was ever a throw-together meal that turned out amazing, this is it!! I’m […]

VEGAN BUTTERNUT SQUASH STUFFED SHELLS

I know – there’s nothing especially Thanksgiving-ey about this recipe. I had a number of vegetarian “main course” ideas that I thought of sharing this year. At the top of the list was a creamy vegan pot pie with a delectable flaky crust… but I didn’t get to it. I’m still excited by that idea […]

Vegan Mushroom Risotto

Is risotto a regular in your home? Even since I posted my Red Pepper Risotto last Winter, risotto has been one of my go-to meals. It’s easy to whip up, comes together in one pot, versatile, tasty, healthy and everybody always goes crazy for its naturally creamayyyy texture. I made this Vegan Mushroom Risotto for […]

30-Minute Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Chowder

A snow storm in NYC yesterday and I missed it. I’m SO bummed. Being in the city when it’s snowing is magical. It gets super quiet – there’s practically no one walking around and the streets are almost empty. It’s like the city goes to sleep. Luckily, having Trevi makes us get out and experience […]

Caramelized Onion Dip

One thing you might miss when switching to a plant-based diet is classic chip dip! But, of course, we’ve figured out a way to make this taste better than the real thing, using only real ingredients, plus only good fats, and lots of flavour from adding caramelized onions and shallots. We were inspired by Better […]

Creamy Spinach Sweet Potato Noodles With Cashew Sauce

Stop right there. Sweet potato noodles? CASHEW SAUCE? First of all, y-u-m. Secondly, it’s true. I’m going fake-vegan-rogue on you today. In terms of actual real life serious commitments, I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian. But I am a person who likes to try new things and sometimes I get lazy about cooking meat, […]

SWEET POTATO CHIPS WITH CREAMY LEMON AND DILL DIP

I hosted a housewarming banquet last time we moved and, upon leaving, my friend told me that these chips were the highlight of the meal. I was bemused, not because they aren’t totally delicious, but because they were a simple side to some other rather elaborate dishes. I took the compliment anyway because, like me, […]
