This tahini caesar-style salad with roasted carrot chips is so enjoyable, it has become my go-to plant-based salad when I want something special (and when I just want salad!). What makes it special? It skips the egg yolks, anchovies, and parmesan cheese of traditional Caesar and swaps it with loads of plant-based flavor from tahini, tamari, lemon zest, and more. And then it gets topped with roasted carrot chips for a pop of color. You can sprinkle on extras, like toasted pine nuts and carrot tops, for extra crunch, flavor, or overall intrigue, too.
This sassy recipe for cool peanut soba noodles with grilled sweet peppers is my newest nutty noodle obsession. (I know, I know … I do A LOT of noodle recipes.) But this cool version features a few Jackie-style cuisine tricks to make it extra special.
Meet my plant-based baby bella, poblano, and corn tacos. They’re my favorite way to indulge in tacos any day of the week! The sautéed baby bella mushrooms in the filling create meatiness … no meat required. And the remaining ingredients are soooo flavorful. Hello warm spices and caramelized poblano peppers and corn.
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.
