Edamame Kale Slaw with Orange Sesame Dressing

Edamame, kale, green cabbage, carrots, sliced almonds, and a sweet, sour, umami dressing.  It makes a delicious, refreshing slaw!  Everyday, I try to make sure that I get a good mix of plant protein, carbohydrates, and fats.  Tonight, I made a meal that was heavy on carbohydrates and lacking in any obvious plant based protein, so…

Grilled Beet Salad

A friend of mine, who is a clinical dietitian and lover of beets, would change everything I thought I knew about beets.  And namely, I thought that I hated them.  She hosted us for dinner, and made some amazing beet burgers from scratch.  While everything was grilling she told me about how beets were one…

Grilled BBQ Soy Curl Quesadillas

If you are a follower of the blog, you know how much I love grilling and soy curls.  This super easy recipe brings the two worlds together.

Artichoke Fennel Farro Salad with Tarragon Dijon Vinaigrette

This makes the perfect side for brunch,…

Lemon Garlic Herb Tofu Skewers

Fresh chives, dill, flat leaf parsley, lemon zest, garlic cloves, and a touch of jalapeƱo bring this marinade to LIFE.  When I think of tofu marinades, I usually think of soy sauce or BBQ.  I don’t often think of fresh herbs, lemon and garlic, and that’s a shame, because it works together so nicely with…

Tempeh Souvlaki Pita

With the summer approaching, I thought there is no better time to start skewering.  Even though I’ve been vegan for 20 years, I still get excited about grill season.  As soon as the weather is warm enough (and even sometimes, when it isn’t quite yet!), I am ready to fire up the grill.   Souvlaki…
