Roasted Radishes

During COVID, my parents and I haven’t left the house to buy groceries, and have relied on grocery delivery. During one of these deliveries, we requested beets, and got plenty of radishes instead.  We don’t often use radishes in our cooking, so I looked for a recipe that included them. I had never had roasted…

Chocolate PB Crispy Squares

Not normally a huge fan of rice krispy treats, but I love chocolate and peanut butter, so I decided to try Gal Cohen’s (@holyhealth on instagram) recipe for these crispy squares. They are vegan, and I really enjoyed them.  chocolate peanut butter rice kripsies treats INGREDIENTS 3 cups puffed rice cereal (or general rice krispies)…

homemade blueberry compote

This recipe from a sweet pea chef is delicious, nutritious, and so easy to make (i’ve already made it twice in less than a month! I’ve had it served with yogurt (I use plain fage greek yogurt 2%) and granola, as well as homemade pancakes and waffles Here’s Lacey Baier’s recipe: Homemade Blueberry Compote Ingredients…

Creamy Whipped Banana Oatmeal

With a combo of peanut butter, banana, and oatmeal, whats not to love? I’m normally someone who chooses to microwave my oats for oatmeal (because it’s much faster) but given that I had extra almond milk from making Homemade Almond Milk (and flour), I thought I’d give this recipe from Erin Lives Whole a try. I’m…

Cauliflower Tikka Masala

I’ve been wanting to make this recipe for Cauliflower Tikka Masala for a while after seeing it on The Cutting Veg instagram feed, and finally got around to making it this weekend! The recipe is not an authentic tikka masala, but it is delicious! Plus, it is dairy free, for all those that are lactose…

Overnight Buckwheat Chia Oatmeal

I bought a huge bag of buckwheat to make my Homemade Seeded Buckwheat Bread, but since I do not have a food processor or blender in my new place (which I need to make the bread), I was not able to use my buckwheat for this recipe. I was looking for another buckwheat recipe that…

Crispy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

So I love fries and sweet potatoes, which has led me to make sweet potato fries pretty frequently. I like mine crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and have tried different recipes. Recently, I tried making two different recipe versions as the same time so I could give a fair comparison. I…

Chocolate Quinoa Bark

I tried making these chocolate quinoa crisps from the Toasted Pinenut that I had saved to Pinterest, and even though they looked nothing like the picture I saw online, they still tasted great. This definitely isn’t my favorite dessert I have featured on this blog, but it’s a fun addition to add crumbled on top of…

Cauliflower Shawarma

I love the smells of shawarma, but as a vegetarian, its hard to find something that absorbs the flavor of this seasoning as well as meat. I’ve tried different vegetarian versions (on tofu, broccoli, and cauliflower), and my favorite by far has been on cauliflower. Shawarma seasoning is a blend of cumin, coriander, paprika and…
