If you want a really chocolatey dessert (or snack) that makes you feel really healthy, this no-cook plant-based cocoa mousse is my favorite pick right now. It’s based on chickpeas which provide so much nutritional goodness along with velvety creaminess. And the sweetness in this mousse is from dates—making it a no-sugar-added treat. The result is 100% yum.
If you’re an egg salad fan but looking for a vegan version of it — or just a new-fangled twist on it — this pulse-based “egg” salad is the answer. It’s fun to make too, since you’ll be making “egg white” salad and “egg yolk” salad, then combining them together to act like the real thing. But the thing is … this 100% plant-based version is 100% real. And it’s so satisfying and nourishing, thanks to pulses.
When you don’t want to be confined to a bowl, create a platter, like my plant-based splatter platter. I call it “splatter platter” because of the style in which you make it—especially when it comes to splattering with the dressing. So artsy, right?!
When you’d like scrambled eggs but you don’t have eggs or don’t actually eat them, you need to try these plant-based chickpea eggs. While they look like scrambled eggs, they’re totally vegan. Plus, they’re more flavorful and filling than the regular kind!
Los Angeles is the city I travel to most often. That’s because five of my closest friends live there. Yep, they’re all of the way on the other coast from me. (Could it be something I said?!) In any case, on my most recent trip, I went for business and stayed several nights at The Line Hotel. On the day I settled in, I decided to grab a bite at the hotel restaurant, Openaire—and devoured a sandwich made with avocado, braised carrots, sunflower tahini, shaved fennel, and sprouts on 7-grain bread. I was inspired … as you can see by this recipe. It’s my twist on it.
