Sugar Free Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

A couple of days ago Sprout woke up, snuggled next to me and gently uttered: "Cookie."  As I did not respond, she repeated: "Cookie, cookie, cookie!" Each time a little stronger.  By the time I got her ready for the day and we stepped into the kitchen to make breakfast, she was not only asking, she was furiously saying and signing "COOKIE!" I caved in... The last thing I … [Read more...]

12 Reasons to Eat Potatoes | 12 Potato Recipes

I love receiving questions from Vegalicious readers and, even moreso, I love answering them. Each week I receive tens of emails with questions on various topics; one from this week stood out to me, since the topic of the question is often vilified without a good reason. Elena, how often do you eat potatoes? It seems like a lot of soups on this site list potatoes as an … [Read more...]

Whole Wheat No Knead Bread Recipe

When we visited my family in November my ever talented niece Anna blew me away with a delicious loaf of bread. It was crunchy, it was chewy (in a good kind of way) and it was delicious.  It looked like it came out of a specialty bakery, but she assured me it was easy to make. I had to know her secret! While she shared her wisdom, the loaf she made was created with white … [Read more...]

Chicky Bites | Chickpea Salad

I always look for inspiration when it comes to creating new recipes. Last week a group of local Body by Plants boot campers came over to my house for a brunch, each bearing a delicious plant-based dish.

Oil Free Cashew Glazed Kale Chips Recipe

Last week was a kale kind of week.  First, I bought 10 bunches of kale--could not miss 5 for $5 sale! (remember, you can always freeze extra greens) Then our farm share had a good portion of kale in it too. We started with kale smoothies, progressed to kale salads (on the image, served with the best vegan mac and cheese you will ever try!)... and finished off the week … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Vegan Buckwheat Salad Recipe

This is a very special salad recipe, because it comes with a story.  A couple of weeks ago I fell into a rut in the kitchen.  I felt uninspired to create any recipes...or to cook. While there are days, and even weeks, when I cannot stop creative juices from flowing, there are times when I feel completely blank and rely on my own web-site to keep food on the table. Yes, I … [Read more...]

Vegan Tuna Salad Recipe

Not to toot my own horn, but I think that this is going to be the best mock tuna salad you ever had! I toiled over the recipe to make it perfect. It had to pass not only my taste test, and, but, more importantly, my Husband's. It is so addicting, in fact, that I found it hard to put my spoon down. I can eat it by itself, without anything else, for a couple straight … [Read more...]
