I love salsa year round! Especially when I can make it with seasonal ingredients like pomegranates and oranges! This flavorful salsa is packed with nutrients, and it is perfect for serving with chips, over a salad, or spooned over some grilled tofu or other protein! Also it is festive so a good addition to your holiday table!
One of my favorite things to enjoy during the cooler months is root vegetables! They are good for you, and really delicious! I think they taste the best when roasted, because it brings out all of their sweet flavor. They make the perfect side dish, and would even be great for Thanksgiving dinner!
I really enjoyed goulash growing up, so I decided to create a healthier plant based version. I make this often, because it is so hearty and delicious but also healthy thanks to the protein and fiber in the lentils. I like to use gluten free pasta made of chickpeas as well, so that adds fiber and protein too!
I am craving hearty dishes this time of the year but I still want them to he healthy for me, so I like to make things like these stuffed sweet potatoes! This time I stuffed them with a spicy chickpea curry that reminds me of one that I like to order at a local Indian restaurant, it is so good! This dish contains fiber, protein and is all veggies so you can feel good about eating it!
Chili is one of my favorite things this time of the year! It is hearty, easy to make and I just make a batch and get several meals out of it! This Sweet Potato Lentil Chili is flavorful and delicious plus really healthy! It is packed with fiber and protein thanks to the sweet potatoes and lentils so you can feel good about eating it!
It is the perfect time of year to make a cool refreshing drink to enjoy on the patio! Margaritas are classic, and I like to put a twist on them and include fresh watermelon in the mix for a delicious variation! These are easy to make with a blender, and you can be relaxing with one in no time!
I love sauerkraut! I used to always buy it at the store, but I decided to start making my own a while back and it is so easy and kind of fun, because you can add your own flavors to it! One of my favorites is to combine red cabbage and beets, like in this recipe here. I add ginger and garlic to give it loads of flavor, and it is good on sandwiches, as a side dish, on top of salads or Buddha bowls, or just to snack on!
In the summer, I love a good fruit salsa! Although mangoes and pineapple are used often, I like to switch it up a bit and use things like stone fruits sometimes. Peaches, nectarines, apricots and pluots go into this delicious salsa! It has a bit of a kick to it, and it goes perfect with corn chips, spooned over salads, or over things like grilled tofu or tempeh!
Tacos are one of my favorite things to make in the Summer! There is nothing like enjoying some spicy tacos and enjoying a refreshing margarita on the patio! These ones contain sweet and savory sweet potatoes roasted to bring out their flavor, along with black beans and our special salsa for a delicious combination! These make for a healthy, flavorful and satisfying vegan summer meal!
We are into strawberry season, and although I love featuring them in desserts, they are delicious in savory recipes as well! This quinoa salad combines them with black beans for protein, fragrant basil and jalapeno and lime for a southwest flavor! This salad is easy to make, healthy and so good!
