Gazpacho

 There is something about a Gazpacho that says summer, don’t you think? The fragrance of the basil with the tomato is mouthwatering. Gather all the ingredients as this is very fast to make. I use tomatoes that are overripe as they have a lot of juice and flavor. After cooking […]

Tikka Masala Cauliflower (Vegan & GF)

 It’s a flavorful food kind of night. The aromas, tastes and textures of this dish do not disappoint. Get all your ingredients out at once. I find that it makes cooking go much smoother. Sauté the onions, garlic, ginger and cinnamon stick. After it’s done cooking, purée them along with […]

Crispy & Spicy Chickpeas

 Roasted Chickpeas are so addicting to eat and are one of the best sources of fiber available. They are a great addition to any meal.   You have to make sure the chickpeas are rinsed and dried well. If you don’t they can go mushy from excess moisture. Pour the […]

Kale & Chickpea Burger

 These vegan burgers are full of flavor and are very satisfying. They’re so simple to make and great on any night of the week. Use the heels of gluten free bread the breadcrumbs. They tend to be drier, so freezing them until you have enough for it is great and […]

Veggie Fajitas with Peach Habanero Salsa
