Socca Pizza with Kale and Fennel

I’m obsessed with Soccas! They are savory, crispy pancakes made with simple, clean ingredients like chickpea flour, water, olive oil, and salt. They are popular street food in Nice, France, where locals sprinkle them with lots of freshly ground black pepper and serve them with cold glasses of rosé. You want to leave the Socca […]


Zesty Artichoke Soup

This Zesty Artichoke Soup is everything you’ve ever needed in a warm and comforting dish. While most of my soups include just a couple of ingredients, I couldn’t resist playing around with different flavors with this one. It includes veggies like leeks, celery, carrots, zucchini, and artichokes, and fresh herbs like dill and chives. The […]


Tempeh and Brown Rice Salad with Fresh Herbs

This tasty salad checks all of the boxes for me: crisp tempeh, crunchy macadamia nuts, loads of herbs, and a pop of tart, antioxidant-rich sweetness from the goldenberries. There are so many health benefits of goldenberries. Some of the most impressive include that they are potent sources of antioxidants, reduce inflammation, may boost immunity, bone […]

Apple tarts are easier to make than you might think, and when entertaining guests, they can be a foolproof last-minute dessert that always […]

Fresh & Vegan “Meatballs”

Red meat consumption has been associated with an increased risk of heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. That’s why I opt for […]


Yaki Onigiri

Yaki Onigiri are Japanese grilled rice balls covered in savory soy sauce. With a crispy crust on the outside and soft sticky rice on the inside, these rice balls are simply irresistible and easy to make at home! Traditionally, Yaki Onigiri is grilled over charcoal, which lends the rice balls a hint of woodsy, smoky flavor […]

Vegan Winter Shepherd’s Pie

This warming recipe is a comforting, vegan take on the traditional Shepherd’s Pie. It combines the rich umami flavors of mushrooms and tamari with the hearty texture of fiber-packed lentils. Fluffy mashed potatoes crown this delightful winter dish, but you could easily substitute with mashed cauliflower, turnips, or even add some greens like spinach to […]


Vegan Kale Caesar with Chickpea Croutons

I have to admit I’ve been really tired and bored of kale these days. BUT, every once in awhile I will eat this delicious, creamy vegan Caesar salad. When I discovered garnishing the salad with a generous amount of crunchy roasted chickpea croutons and a nut & seed parmesan cheese that sold it for me.  […]
