Farro Breakfast Bowl

I love an avocado egg combo, and also have been trying to incorporate more farro into my cooking, so I was excited to try out this recipe from Cooking Light! It takes a little longer than other breakfast recipes I’ve made given the time it takes to cook the farro, so I recommend either cooking…

Homemade Hummus

Growing up in an Israeli family, I’ve been exposed to quality hummus my whole life. This has made me very picky with my hummus consumption. I’ve made and eaten many versions of hummus recipes and what I know is that nothing makes a bigger difference than using dried beans. I have hummus recipes with canned…

Vegan Lentil Moussaka

I haven’t ever had a chance to eat real moussaka given that I’ve been a vegetarian most of my life. However, my family members, who have had real moussaka and are generally skeptical of my meat free substitutions, loved this dish! This dish uses very little oil but is still very flavorful, and is also…

Garden Focaccia

During quarantine, baking has become super common, even for those who I know regularly avoid the kitchen. Even as someone who baked before this crazy time, I am finding myself baking much more frequently (also because I’m now with my parents, I’m I can share my baked creations with them, so my baked goods go…

Blueberry Oatmeal Blender Pancakes

My favorite pancake recipe to make is inspired by @holyhealth‘s chocolate chip oatmeal blender pancakes. Her original recipe was a bit too sweet for my family for breakfast, so we have been substituting the chocolate chips with wild frozen blueberries and it’s now one of our favorite breakfasts. Here’s the recipe… Blueberry Oatmeal Blender Pancakes…

Vegan PB cups

I’m not huge on candy, and my favorite American candy by far is Reese’s. Nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate combo! These treats from @holyhealth (on instagram) are not only a healthier, less processed version of a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but are also tastier (in my opinion). Here’s her recipe (my edits/comments are…

Saw this recipe from Shuangy’s Kitchen Sink on her instagram, and knew I had to try it out. I’m not a huge cake fan, but love the flavors of carrot cake, so I enjoyed this overnight oats even more than real carrot cake!  Here’s Shuangy’s recipe (my edits are in red): Carrot Cake Overnight Oats…
