Quick & Easy Tabouli Vinaigrette

When I decided that a tabouli recipe was next on my list for development, I knew my tabouli salad wasn’t going to be traditional. In my mind, traditional tabouli is made from bulgar wheat, fresh parsley and mint, olive oil, lime juice, chopped tomatoes, salt and pepper. The herbs are strictly chopped. There’s no cucumber allowed.… Continue reading Quick & Easy Tabouli Vinaigrette

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad with Super Green Tahini Sauce

In my opinion, the best way to cleanse and detox the body is with plant-based (vegan) meals filled to the brim with fresh produce, whole grains, fiber and protein. This quinoa salad fits the bill, not to mention being outrageously delicious. The layers of flavors and textures in this salad will leave feeling full, satisfied and healthy.

Vegan Portobello Mushroom Bacon

As a vegetarian, there’s one thing, and one thing only, that I miss about bacon – BLT sandwiches. Just thinking about them makes me hungry. And that’s why a good recipe for meat-free bacon is an absolute must for me. But why even call it bacon, if it’s not made of pork?

Quick & Easy: Roasted Asparagus & Hummus Gyros

More and more these days, Matt and I find ourselves playing the fridge-clean-out-game when deciding what to do for dinner. We do about one main grocery shop per week at which point we buy tons of produce, a little bit of meat or poultry for matt and restock our grains, beans and dairy arsenal. I may plan for a couple… Continue reading Quick & Easy: Roasted Asparagus & Hummus Gyros

Vegetarian Cauliflower Reuben Sandwiches

2017 is the year of the Cauliflower Steak. I’m literally obsessed. If you haven’t yet heard of the concept, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like – a slab (or steak, if you will) of cauliflower, roasted or grilled until rich in flavor and tender in texture. Eat this tasty “steak” on it’s own, or… Continue reading Vegetarian Cauliflower Reuben Sandwiches

Quick & Easy: Fresh Mozzarella and Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Maple Mustard

Between my best friend’s amazing wedding last weekend (shout out to my girl, Karen G), and keeping myself on top of school as the workload steadily grows, and catching a bug of some kind this week, what better recipe to share than a total time-buster recipe? I mean, I barely had time to make a post… Continue reading Quick & Easy: Fresh Mozzarella and Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Maple Mustard

Lighten Up: Curry Chickpea Salad

Let me tell you, this has been and will continue to be quite the week for me, in more ways than one. Firstly, it’s officially my last week working in corporate fashion.

Quick & Simple: Vegan Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

I’ve said it before, much of my inspiration in the kitchen comes from my mom. Growing up, we had family dinners every weeknight, and my mom always managed to make delicious, creative, balanced and varied meals for us. Because my mom ran a successful non-profit and had three kids, two dogs and a husband to… Continue reading Quick & Simple: Vegan Sloppy Joe Sandwiches
