I’ve got a cool new salad for you … a Peach Melba-Inspired Salad, that is! It’s kind of like a savory interpretation of peach melba, which is a classic dessert featuring peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream. In other words, it’s a leafy salad starring peaches in two ways, whole raspberries and, instead of scoops of ice cream, balls of plant-based cheese. It’s dressed with a lovely peach vinaigrette that I make with Karuna JOY-D Whole Plant Juice. Altogether, it’s fresh, vibrant, and aromatic … and fun to fix.
If you accidentally spilled a fruit smoothie onto your oats and baked it, that’s sort of what this fruit smoothie-infused granola is! Instead of adding any kind of sugar or syrup to the recipe, you’ll get natural sweetness from a blended combination of banana and 100% fruit juice — a smoothie! (Hint: See lots more of my tips in How to Make Healthy Granola in 5 Simple Steps, According to a Dietitian.)
You’ll want to fix these four-layer hummus jars when hummus sounds like a good idea, but you want something a little (or a lot!) jazzier. They’re fun to make, super flavorful, and so appealing to the eye. And if you’ve got a picnic to pack for, these are absolutely perfect. I can personally vouch for that!
One of my favorite summery comfort meals is this pan-grilled seasonal fruit & treenut cheese pizza. It’s 100 percent plant-based … and 100 percent yum!
If you’re looking for a fun way to start a meal with your family or a cookout with your vaxxed friends, this s’mores-style plant-based caprese concept is absolutely it! Everyone gets to make their own hors d’oeuvre like they’re toasting marshmallows. Though 100% savory, it’s still just as much of a treat as desserty s’mores. Plus, you don’t need to wait until after dinner.
