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 Parmesan

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…

PB and J Oats

It’s peanut butter jelly time! Especially with today being National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. I love my morning oatmeal, especially warmed up with fruits. I normally like adding tahini, like in my Berry Tahini Oatmeal, to make the oatmeal more filling (I have very little self-control when peanut butter is in the house). However, I…

The health benefits of chia seeds are countless, as chia seeds…

Here’s how I made it: Spring Roll Ingredients: Fruit of choice (sliced mango, sliced strawberry or blackberries) alfalfa sprouts chopped cilantro (optional since there are plenty of people averse to it) chopped mint chopped…

Plantain Bread

Friendly to many diets (Paleo, gluten-free, kosher, nut free), this delicious plantain bread is worth a try! This recipe is from from @starinfinitefood on instagram. I doubled her recipe to make a larger loaf (so loaf if tall enough to have slices for sandwiches). Best served warm with butter! Ingredients: 2 large plantains (yellow/brown) 4…

Southwestern Tacos with Lentil Walnut Meat

Made these southwestern tacos after making this recipe of Lentil Walnut meat from Vegan Heaven. The lentil walnut meat was a hit, even with my carnivorous family members! I love this lentil walnut meat recipe because it is versatile to cook with and is healthy and delicious.  Feel free to make your own revisions based on…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe from Rachel Mansfield contains my favorite combination of ingredients: bananas, chocolate and nut butter. If you are allergic to nuts, you can use a nut-free butter to substitute for nut butter. Even though this recipe can be paleo-friendly, nothing about the taste of this recipe screams healthy dessert! In fact, this is definitely…
