Anne's teenage daughter recently converted to veganism. What was initially thought to be a passing trend has become a lifestyle commitment. A weeknight stable for Emma, this bowl combines Island Coconut beans and rice, sautéed kale with carrots and garlic, and fresh cherry tomatoes with sliced avocado to create one healthy and flavor-packed bowl. Who says a vegan lifestyle is boring? Dig in!
Berbere is a traditional Ethiopian spice blend and is a staff favorite. We love this spicy-sweet-spicy (did we mention spicy) blend. It's a must for lentils. We love it on grilled chicken thighs. This is a fun blend that really makes an impact. We served these at a store event and received tons of requests for the recipe. Whip these up for your next get together, and watch them disappear!
If you've been looking for a delicious meatless alternative to a burger patty, we have a recipe we think you'll love.

Let's be honest, dairy-alternatives to products like salad dressing can be a little frustrating. Does it ever taste like the real thing?

With ingredients like cashews, nutritional yeast, chia seeds, capers and Himalayan Pink salt, this recipe is a keeper for both vegan and non-vegans alike.

Persian Eggplant dip, also known as Kashkeh Bademjoon or Borani, is our new favorite way to use summer eggplant. And for good reason. This dip is flavorful, simple to make and is easily adapted into a vegan and gluten-free recipe. Just make the dip without sour cream or substitute hummus instead, and switch out the pita bread for your favorite non-gluten dipping option.
These egg and dairy free muffins are nothing short of delicious. The baking soda and vinegar do the leavening work of the egg, and the almond milk subs in for dairy. These muffins bake up with a beautiful rounded crown and golden brown color. Frozen blueberries can be used in place of fresh.These make for a wonderful breakfast or snack any time of the day!
Elen's guilty pleasure stems from childhood memories of frozen desserts. Her tastes have matured to include tart yogurt and coconut milk ice cream. Earthy nuts, sweet strawberries and ultra sweet Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar compliment the coconut milk ice cream perfectly. Another plus? This one is dinner party worthy with very little effort.
