Dips & Spreads

Pad Thai Hummus

 I have to admit that Thai food is one of my many food weaknesses. It has such a delightful play on flavors. Spicy. Tangy. Savory. I decided to try the flavors of Pad Thai in a hummus; crazy I know, but it works! It’s immediately addicting and it’s healthy. You […]

Avocado Cilantro Hummus

 Hummus is one of my absolute favorite snack foods! It tastes delicious and it pairs perfectly with all veggies. I decided to try avocado in it and it makes it have such a creamy texture. As you will notice, there is no tahini in it. I found it didn’t pair […]

Pecan Butter

 I needed pecan butter for a recipe, so I decided to try making it on my own and it turned out great! It’s so simple to make and tastes like pecan pie! Start by toasting the pecans. You need to do this to bring out the oils and it gives […]

Roasted Zucchini & Eggplant Dip

 I wanted veggies and dip for dinner, but didn’t feel like having hummus. So I looked through my fridge and found zucchini and an eggplant. I roasted it along with garlic and onion and it was delightful! I will be making this dip a lot! After everything is done roasting, […]

Chocolate Hummus

 I am looking for ways to incorporate more pulses into my diet. Pulses are dried peas, edible beans, lentils and chickpeas. Since I am not a fan of these at all, I have to be creative in how I eat them. So I thought, why not make it into a […]

Cashew Cream

 This cashew cream takes the place of whipping cream and is delightful! Take away the maple syrup and vanilla and you can make this a savory cream!  Soak the cashews for a couple hours. After you rinse and drain them, you add the remaining ingredients and blend. That’s it! You […]

Almond Crème Fraîche

 I’m absolutely in love with this vegan alternative! It has the taste of Crème Fraîche which I absolutely love. Soak the almonds in warm water. I bought almonds with the skins already removed as I didn’t feel like peeling them. Put into the blender and purée until smooth. Store in […]

Roasted Garlic Vegan Aioli

 This aioli is amazing! The addition of roasted garlic and dijon add so much depth to this condiment. You can’t tell that this is vegan and my family loves it. Roast your bulb of garlic by wrapping it in tinfoil and drizzling with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Squeeze all the […]
