One of my favorite kitchen pastimes is to recreate comfort food into a new food experience. Ultimately, my goal is to make the dishes even tastier, healthier, and plant-ier (I think I made that word up?!) … and to elevate them so they’re a slight bit fancier. That’s what I did here. And don’t worry, it’s not complicated even though it might look like it. It’s my newest take on chili cheese fries. Yep, it’s still carb-rich … but at least it’s 100% “good” carbs!
April is Earth Month. And April 22 is Earth Day. So, this is the best time of year to set new green goals. Do you have one yet? If not, here are two simple things you can do … eat more plant-based or eat more seasonally (or both). And this meal is definitely a delicious way to bring both of those goals to life in your cuisine!
Earth Day is April 22nd. Picnic Day is April 23rd. So, I created this refreshing and super scrumptious twist on potato salad to celebrate both days al fresco.

As a bonus, it’s vegan!” ~ Karsyn Tall
April 22 is Earth Day! So, happy Earth Day, my fellow earthlings! Here’s a recipe to help you celebrate! Whenever I have extra veggie pieces (“scraps”) in my fridge (which is like always!), I often sauté them up, then scramble with eggs or toss with pasta. Other times I’ll roast or grill ’em, then blend into hummus. And here’s my other favorite use for those leftover (aka “vintage”) vegetables: Veggie Scrap Freekeh. (Hint: Prepare it on a Friday so you can crack yourself up and call it Freekeh Friday! Or enjoy it on Meatless Monday in honor of #MeatlessMonday4Earth. Or do both!) So, check your fridge. If you have veggie odds-n-ends on hand that might be ready for composting (or,...
