I love playing with my food—which is how this recipe came to be! After dining at a restaurant that had Jerusalem bagel sandwiches, I had a craving for the bready delight. That’s probably because I couldn’t buy just the bagel itself at the restaurant. At the same time, I happened to have lots and lots of cherry tomatoes on hand—and was thinking I’d make a tomato galette with them. I loosely married the ideas together and this Jerusalem Bagel-Style Cherry Tomato Galette became the result. And it’s a winner!
It may seem like a lazy thing to do, but I created this 100% plant-based pasta recipe because I’ve been way beyond busy lately. I know I’m not alone in that! That’s why this easy one-pot pasta with lemony greens and cashew cheese is sooo, sooo simple to make … just toss everything in a pot and cook, then add some delicious toppings. That’s it!
I’m a big, BIG veggie burger fan. It’s such a fun way to get plants! I don’t think I really have a favorite, but I do have a go-to recipe that I make the most often. This is it! These red beans & rice plant-based burger patties are so easy to make—and tasty, nourishing, and versatile. They look pretty darn close to the “real thing,” too.
One of my not-so-guilty pleasures is a chocolate shake. I love to do a dairy-free version so it fits best with my plant-based eating approach. Though I make shakes many ways, this overnight creamy cashew chocolate shake is my new favorite. And let’s face it … anything chilly is welcome in our way-too-hot summer that we’re having right now. Luckily, there’s no “giving up” scrumptiousness, creaminess, or anything else with this shake recipe. It’s one of my answers for the definition of “yum!”
Are you a popcorn lover? I’m a fan … but I am definitely particular about it! If it’s diet-y or filled w/mysterious stuff, I’ll take a pass. However, I love giving it fun, non-diet-y, non-mysterious upgrades, like this 100-percent plant-based recipe for sweet and salty tahini popcorn. It’s a good one … kind of like caramel popcorn, but with a bit more intrigue!
